How do you replace the water pump on a 91 ford probe Car overheats but has new radiator and hoses and new thermostat gets hot and runs out of water but i can find no leaks any suggestions?
Engine overheats When a car or truck overheats idling, in town, on the highway, while towing, etc. it is important to find out the reason to prevent engine damage. First, with the engine cold, make sure the radiator is full of coolant; if it is low, fill it and keep the radiator cap off while the engine idles to insure all air is bled out of the system ( air trapped in the system can cause overheating also). Check the coolant level daily; if the coolant goes down without visible leaks, it may be a head gasket starting to leak which will also cause the heater to blow cold air due to the lack of available coolant. If the coolant stays full, but the car continues to overheat, the next step is to replace the thermostat in the engine and flush the cooling system if that has not been done over the last few years.Buy a thermostat at a parts store and a PRESTONE flush kit which has excellent directions on the package.After completing these steps and the vehicle still overheats, have your cooling fan sensor/switch ( if equipped)checked out to insure it is coming on. Water pumps are seldom the cause as they are mechanical and will continue to work until their bearings give out. Finally, the radiator itself is often the problem as it tends to build up corrosion internally which prevents it from transfering engine heat to the coolant. Remove it and have it 're-cored'. One of these steps will solve the problem.
How can you tell wheather the radiator or the thermostat is not working because my car has a very serious problem with it overheating?
What could be wrong with an Aurora if it overheats a lot but only when going over 65mph Besides EGR valve?
To replace the thermostat on a 1988 535i, first locate the top radiator hose and remove the end connected to the motor. Take out the old thermostat and use gasket cleaner to remove the old gasket. Then replace the gasket and thermostat exactly as it was when it came out. Tighten up the radiator hose over the thermostat.
The first step in how one can replace a thermostat in a 2001 Cadillac DeVille is to remove the housing which surrounds the old thermostat. The radiator hose will need to be removed and drained and then the thermostat can be removed. Remove the old thermostat gasket and then insert the new thermostat as well as the new gasket. Attach the radiator hose and place the drained fluid back into the radiator filler cap.
first check to make sure your fan comes on. if it does then there are several things that could be wrong. first do you have enough water/antifreeze in the radiatior. check to make sure you have no leaks. then replace the thermostat located in the top radiator belt housing connected to the motor. if it still overheats try replacing the water pump. if it still overheats after that check your oil to see if theres…
When My vauxhall frontera overheats with thermostat in place when i take the thermostat out it runs normal would you say that the thermostat is not opening?
Absolutely. I would definitely replace this. You can check this by making sure that when you remove the thermostat it is cold and then dropping the thermostat into a bowl of boiling hot water and see if it reacts..... if it doesn't then that's the problem! If it does then flush the coolant system through with some radiator flush and then flush through with clean water before renewing antifreeze and water.
Just guessing on this one, but it COULD be that the thermostat won't open completely. At an idle, the coolant circulates enough to cool the engine but when the engine is producing more heat, like when it's running at 60mph, it overheats. Just a guess, but I'd start there. The thermostat is near the front of the engine, on top of the intake manifold. It's under the upper radiator hose. Pull the radiator hose connector…
How do you replace the engine temperature sensor on a 99 Chevy Malib antifreeze is not reaching the engine and it overheats after 20 min but will restart when cools down?
Could my car overheated because my transmission fluid wasn't changed Also have you ever heard of replacing the water pump thermostat radiator and cylinder all at the same time due to overheating?
What do you if your car overheats because when you depress the accelerator the water hose to the radiator closes in?
Check the thermostat and replace if you have more than 30,000 miles on it They sometimes stick partially closed and cause overheating. A second cause may be a clogged or undersized radiator. You can have a radiator shop clean it or better yet, have them build a new radiator but add an extra row of coils to add extra cooling.
