On a 1991 Ford Tempo should there be a plug on the back of the block near the cylinder that contains the engine coolant for that cylinder?
those are frost plugs used for machining out passages during manufacturing can also be used to install block heater
On a 2003 Ford Ranger : The 2.3 litre four cylinder engine has a thread on cap on the engine coolant reservoir , that is the pressure cap / radiator cap ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- On the 3.0 and 4.0 litre V6 engines , I believe there is a radiator cap on the top of the radiator , but with the engine cool you should add engine coolant to the engine coolant reservoir - it has a cold…
Where is the temperature senor located for a 2002 Mazda 2.5L engine found within the engine compartment area?
I have a 1994 Ford Ranger XLT it always needs transmission fluid but I never have a pudle from it leaking. Also when i hit the gas white smoke comes from the tailpipe. What wrong with it?
The transmission fluid could be leaking into the engine coolant through the transmission cooler in the radiator. You should be able to see the transmission fluid in the engine coolant recovery tank. It will look like a oily film on top of the coolant. White smoke (steam) out of the exhaust indicates engine coolant is leaking into a cylinder.This can be a result of a blown cylinder head gasket or a cracked cylinder head. Have…
Open the hood. Stand directly in front of the radiator. Look for the top hose coming out of the radiator and going into the engine cylinder head. The hose should be attached, with a clamp, to an aluminum housing on the head. This housing should have a little sensor with a wire. (Black with a yellow stripe if I remember correctly-maybe not) This is the ECT. The part it is fastened to contains the thermostat…
If your symptom is that you power the engine off and then, moments later, coolant starts to spray out of the radiator cap/coolant reservoir then you have a cracked cylinder-head and/or broken/failed head-gasket. What is happening is the crack in the head (or tear in the gasket) is letting combustion gases into the cooling system. These gasses collect at the highest point and effectively "air-lock" that area keeping coolant away from the metal. When the…
On 1.2 3 cylinder BME engine Fabias it is loctated in the black plastic housing near side of cylinder head with 2 rubber coolant hoses coming out of it. Standing at front of car with bonnet up and looking into engine bay it should be to your right side, underneath the side of the engine cover and the thermostat housing has an electrical connector plug coming out of it.
Why do you keep getting a coolant sensor trouble code after changing the sensor and clearing codes on a 1991 gmc sierra 5.7?
completely drained out it should take 1 3/4 gallons of TOYOTA coolant. I emphasize TOYOTA, because it is the best coolant out there. I was a Toyota technician and saw many problems with cheap aftermarket products such as alternators, starters, brakes, and even coolant. I hope you got what you were looking for.
If it is a V6, the cam belt, water pump, spark plugs, coolant, and thermostat, should have been replaced at 110,000 miles. If you have not done so, know that this is an interference engine. If the belt breaks you will have engine damage. If it is a 4 cylinder the spark plugs, coolant, & thermostat need to be replaced. Have brakes and suspension inspected.
Most antifreeze will work in any engine. For diesel engines in general, use a good long life coolant that includes nitrates (red stuff). For regular (green) coolant, most diesel manufactures require you to add your own nitrates or DFCA to this mix to prevent pitting of the cylinder liners. Check with your engine manufacturer for specifics.
The heat is not working because you are very low on coolant, probably because of the leak. Seems to me that it should leak worse when it is running, so I am going to assume you are talking about the coolant overflowing the reservoir, in which case goes back to you being low on coolant and the engine boiling the coolant.
Should be located in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose Drain about 1 gallon of coolant from the radiator Remove this housing Note how thermostat is installed in housing Clean both surfaces Replace thermostat and gasket Re-install housing Re-fill coolant slowly to prevent an air lock Start engine and look for leaks Run engine to normal operating temperature with heater on Re-check coolant level
First, check the coolant in the radiator. Second, crank the engine and turn on the AC. the electric fan(s) should come on. If they don't you have an electrical problem, possibly a fuse, relay or a bad electric fan. If they do, you've probably have a faulty thermostat in the engine. If the car is consistantly low in coolant without an external leak or it steams, you may have a bad cylinder head or gasket.
No, the thermostat controls the temperature of the engine coolant. As long as the coolant temperature is below the thermostat set-point, the thermostat remains closed. Once the temperature arrives at the set-point, the thermostat starts to open, sending heated coolant through the radiator. The radiator then cools the heated engine coolant and the water pump forces the coolant back through the engine. The heater control valve allows more or less of the engine coolant through…
