Where is it leaking? That pressure test sounds funny, why would you pressurize only the pump and radiator? If you are leaking coolant outside the engine, locate the source. If you are losing it from the radiator but cannot find a puddle suspect a head gasket problem. Check the Radiator cap first, if it is bad high pressure coolant will travel back to the overflow bottle.

Is it leaking from the water pump or radiator? Is the system properly pressurized?


The best indication of a bad thermostat is when the radiator fluid (Antifreeze) boils over from the reserve tank, not the radiator. This is caused by the thermostat not opening at its preset temperature and all the extra antifreeze is pumped directly to the reserve tank. You will also have loss of power and the vehicle will likely stop running soon after the antifreeze boils over.


To replace the thermostat on a 91 Cavalier you need to drain the radiator. Remove the top radiator hose and water inlet. Remove the thermostat from under the inlet. Install the new thermostat and reinstall the inlet and hose. Fill the radiator with fresh antifreeze.


Drain the radiator into a container. Remove the upper radiator hose at the engine and remove the 2 bolts in the thermostat housing. Remove the thermostat and clean both surfaces. Install the new thermostat and upper hose. Top off the antifreeze.


If the thermostat is stuck open, the radiator is able to cool the antifreeze faster than the engine can heat it.


Drain the radiator into a container. Remove the upper radiator hose from the engine. Remove the 2 bolts in the thermostat housing. Remove the thermostat, clean both surfaces and install the new thermostat. Install the housing and 2 bolts. Reinstall the radiator hose and top off the antifreeze.


Drain the radiator into a container. Remove the upper radiator hose at the engine end. there is 2 bolts in the housing that hold the thermostat. Remove them and the thermostat and clean both surfaces. Install the new thermostat and housing. Install the upper hose and top off the radiator with a 50/50 mixture of antifreeze and water.


Drain the radiator. Remove the top radiator hose on the 2003 Buick Century. Unbolt the hose inlet. Remove the inlet housing and take out the thermostat. Replace the thermostat, install the housing and top hose, and refill with antifreeze.


generally located where the upper radiator hose meets the block, under the throttle body Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine, there should be the thermostat housing. And there is no drain plug on an 2002 Monte Carlo 3.8 v6 , so you will lose less antifreeze if you just disconnect the upper radiator hose from the thermostat housing then hold that hose up. I only lost maybe a quart of antifreeze.


A couple of reasons, faulty waterpump, leaky radiator, bad hose, bad radiator cap, thermostat housing.


Thermostat messed up, Oil needs to be changed, no antifreeze in the radiator, radiator fan is not working properly


Sounds like you need to flush the radiator and replace the thermostat


remove some of your antifreeze,disconnect top radiator hose,remove 2 bolts holding thermostat cover remove thermostat and scrap sealant off both sides and put more sealant on and install thermostat and tighten 2 bolts and add more antifreeze.


Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine. The thermostat is located within the housing where the radiator hose connects tot he engine. Drain radiator, remove hose from thermostat housing, remove the bolts that fasten the housing to the engine and pull off housing, pull out thermostat noticing the direction it is pointing. Installation is reverse of removal (making sure thermostat is facing in the right direction). Refill radiator with 50/50 water/antifreeze solution.


I suspect that either your thermostat is plugged with debris from the radiator change or that the thermostat was replaced backwards. The spring side should be towards the block.


It could be a number of things. Timing, bad thermostat, bad fan or just low on antifreeze.


Drain the radiator into a container. Remove the upper radiator hose from the thermostat housing at the engine. Remove the two bolts and remove the housing and thermostat. Clean both surfaces and install the new thermostat and seal and reinstall the housing. reinstall the radiator hose, tighten the clamps and refill with a 50/50 mixture of antifreeze and water.jd


The radiator needs antifreeze.


The thermostat is in the radiator. Open the radiator lid and pull the thermostat out.


Cleans antifreeze and dirt out of the radiator


Bad head gasket or... Crack in exhaust port in head. Check exhaust for presence of antifreeze smell or exhaust gas in radiator.


Engine hot - normal Engine cool excessive pressure bad thermostat


Generally, if your car overheats with the proper level of antifreeze, either your water pump has gone bad (not circulating fluid), the thermostat is stuck, or your radiator is clogged up inside. -NAPAman


how many gallons of antifreeze in a 2003 blazer radiator with a/c


If you follow your upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine you will see it is connected to a outlet that is bolted to the intake manifold. This is your thermostat housing/coolant outlet. Drain the coolant from your radiator, at least half way. The remove the upper radiator hose. Remove the thermostat housing. Now you can remove the thermostat. Make sure you clean all the old gasket off of the the housing and manifold. Then install the new thermostat, a new gasket )I also recommend using some rtv or gasket sealant to prep the gasket) and the thermostat housing. Then hook your hose back up. remove the radiator cap and refill your radiator. Make sure to use a 50/50 mixture antifreeze.
