What do you do if you had the cracked radiator the thermostat water pump and timing belt replaced on a 92 Protege but still do not have much heat?
One possibility is that the thermostat was replaced with one that opens at a higher temp than the old one. I would suggest driving with cardboard in front of your radiator, cause everybody's doing it, but that's how I cracked my radiator, and sent my cars cooling system straight to hell, so do it at your own risk.
2004 Monte Carlo overheats radiator replaced cooling sensor replaced cooling system flushed fans replaced thermostat replaced any suggestions on fixing problem?
blown head gasket or even worse, a cracked head or two.. try filling radiator with fluid, then start it up. there should be a pressure relief valve on top of where you replaced the thermostat. crack it till it bleeds all air off, then there should be only fluid. gradually fill your radiator with fluid during this process. if water is spitting out of the fill hole, it's a cracked head
2002 mustang GT Overheats quickly and smokes Radiator and hoses full of sludge Have replaced water pump radiator and thermostat?
1994 Honda accord and the radiator was cracked and i replaced it and bled the air out It is now running hot when the car is in idle and it doesn't seem to run hot when i am driving?
Had the same problem on my 1991 accord. Replace the thermostat, gasket, and radiator cap. Also, get a gallon of coolant if your current coolant has been in there for more than three years. The thermostat is in the engine block. Simply drain coolant, remove the radiator hose from the engine - the hose that goes from the bottom of the radiator into the engine. There may also be a small spount that bolts into…
What is wrong if your 1997 Grand Am GT overheats even after you've replaced the thermostat water pump and radiator and the fan clicks on when it is supposed to?
A number of things. The fan relay or temperature switch may be bad (electrical fans), the fan clutch may be worn out (older vehicles), the radiator could be clogged internally, too much debris in front of radiator (air can't get through to cool collant), blown head gasket, or a cracked head. Also the thermostat could have been installed backwards.
Have 1994 Toyota truck replaced thermostat radiator and water pump It will still boil over after about 3 minutes of idling What could be causing this?
Why would a 1992 Chevrolet Cavalier overheat when the radiator fan motor water pump thermostat and heatercore have been replaced and the system has been flushed?
We Have a 88 Honda accord lx that keeps overheating have changed thermostats and checked timing belt replaced radiator and checked cooling fans still overheats?
If you replaced some of theses already ignore and go down the line # Not enough coolant # Water pump drivebelt defective or out of adjustment # Radiator core blocked or grille restricted # Thermostat faulty # Electric cooling fans blades broken or cracked # Radiator cap not maintaining proper pressure # Ignition timing incorrect
Is it possible that the mechanic who replaced my clutch cracked the thermostat housing accidentally?
You have oil backing up in your coolant reservoir and you have no heat in your car what do you do nowwe cant find the thermostat.we replaced the radiator and that was no help what do i do now?
What could be causing the major coolant leak near the lower front part of your Sabb 900 Turbo engine?

2000 neon rader replaced know if you leave it idling for more then 10mins after drivng it overheats help?
is it just residue from where the gasket is gone?, if not there is a possibility that the head is cracked, was the head checked to make sure it was not warped? and pressure tested?, also you might have an additional problem, radiator blockage,thermostat stuck or if its the k series the dreaded ballbearing problem, each of these could cause the gasket to go again
1- incorrect amount of coolant 2- stuck thermostat If you turn the heater to HOT and run the engine does that reduce the engine temperature a lot? little? If a lot then look at #2. Other reasons for overheating include a worn out fan motor and/or clogged radiator. The original radiators on these cars had plastic tanks which would eventually crack and leak causing a loss of coolant. Check for a greenish colored residue around…
Low coolant, blockage in the cooling system, failed thermostat, failed pressure relief cap, blockage of air flow through the radiator fins, burnt out coolant which has lost its heat transfer efficiency... if you want to narrow it down, you're going to have to do some diagnosis, rather than expecting us to be able to definitely say, "yes, it's definitely....." on here.
assuming you have no water in the radiator. there can be several causes for this. one is the radiator has a hole, the water pump bushing is bad and leaking, you have a cracked block or head, or you have a blown or rusted through freeze plug, or your heater core could be leaking as well. or a hose has a hole in it. fill it up and see if you can find any leaks…
I have a 2000 Chevy blazer Lt 4.3 2wd automatic the temperature gauge is going to max it hot but has not actually overheated i have flushed the system brown redish slugish junk came out but still hot?
Have your radiator tested at a radiator shop, replace the thermostat, and if it was mine I would replace the water pump also. If fluid is leaking from under the front snout of the water pump, it needs replaced. If there is either white slurry in your oil or excess gas and black oil floating on top of your coolant, you may have a head gasket or cracked head causing the overheating. In most cases…
98 civic overheats within ten minutes of driving. I just replaced the radiator the old one was cracked. What else could it be?
replace the thermostat, sometimes when cars overheat people try to bandage the problem by removing it. Works for temp. fix but when you replace the rad if there is not a thermostat there is nothing to keep the coolant in the rad long enough to cool. Also you should check for a blown head gasket, go to your local rad shop and ask them to test it.
