You shouldn't feel the radiator up or the condenser will get jealous. But seriously, you'll need to get back ther to see what you've got with a light. Follow the heater hoses back for starters. I would be suspicious of a soft plug, especially if the cooling system wasn't flushed on a scheduled basis. -------------------------------------------- The intake manifolds are bad about leaking. If that is the case the use an improved set. It is a little more expensive but well worth the investment.
Yes, a restricted or leaking radiator can cause the engine to overheat.
Does it have 2 lines coming from the top of the oil filter, and going to the radiator. If so that is the oil cooler. You need to replace the RADIATOR Those 2 lines go into the radiator so it can cool the oil, and the tubes are leaking oil into the coolant.
No, it can't but stay posted, by Thursday or Friday I will know the answer. I work at the dealership
broken engine gasket.
Yes it will.
Yes, if the radiator is clogged and the engine overheats. The main cause of head gasket failure is the engine overheating.
clogged radiator or bad water pump
Having a leak in a radiator hose will have no effect on the engine running or not. However, in time the hose leak will cause the level of the coolant in the radiator to drop below a critical level and the engine will overheat.
No, but it can cause severe engine damage if you keep running the engine.
no oil in engine or water in radiator will cause engine to seriously o/heat! and eventually seize! major engine damage!!
It could be the radiator is clogged. The thermostat could be bad (prevents the coolant from circulating from radiator to engine block)
Well a possibility is a problem with the radiator, either it needs to be fixed, replaced, or has no radiator fluid in it to cool the engine.
yes if the dust has stuck to radiator,and blocked the cooling fins, it will sure enuff cause over heating. with engine off, you can usually wash dust and other debri out of radiator fins from the engine side, using a hose.do not use a pressure washer as this will damage the fins
After repairing the cause of the code, you clear the code with a scan tool.
A cracked radiator would leak the fluid out, leaving no coolant for your engine which would cause your engine to overheat and be destroyed pretty quickly. So the answer is NO.
A bad water pump or thermostat can cause an engine to overheat. A plugged (clogged) radiator or heater core may also cause an engine to overheat.
If the engine was severely overheated, yes that can cause engine failure.If the engine was severely overheated, yes that can cause engine failure.
no cause a 1994 may have a bigger engine
The pressure from the radiator is pushing out through the overflow canister. Probably solved with new radiator cap but could be an indication of head gasket problems if pressure gets too high.
Cooling system leak or engine overheating and steam escaping from the radiator cap.Cooling system leak or engine overheating and steam escaping from the radiator cap.
Fix the cause of the code that turned the light on.
A vacuum leak, a bad injector and if the check engine light is on, check the codes.
The engine on your 04 5.3L Chevy Tahoe could be knocking until it warmed up because of a bad fuel-air mixture. . The wrong oil could also be a cause.
EXTREMELY !!! The radiator is the heat exchanger for the engine. The coolant absorbs heat caused by combustion and is circulated to the radiator by the water pump. The core of the radiator allows the cooling fan and normal air movement while driving, to pass over the fins of the radiator core. This cools the temperature of the coolant before it returns to the engine. Excessive heat in the engine can cause oil breakdown and sludging, which can block oil flow, resulting in terminal failure of the engine. If the car has an aluminum cylinder head, the excessive heat could cause the cylinder head to warp and the headgasket to fail. Headgasket failure can allow coolant to enter the oiling system and cause the engine to seize up. Coolant entering the combustion chamber due to a failed headgasket, can cause the engine to hydro-lock and damage pistons or connecting rods and again, engine failure!
