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

User Avatar

Yes, if the radiator is clogged and the engine overheats. The main cause of head gasket failure is the engine overheating.

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.

User Avatar

No, but it can cause severe engine damage if you keep running the engine.

User Avatar

no oil in engine or water in radiator will cause engine to seriously o/heat! and eventually seize! major engine damage!!

If the engine was severely overheated, yes that can cause engine failure.If the engine was severely overheated, yes that can cause engine failure.

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.

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.

It could be the radiator is clogged. The thermostat could be bad (prevents the coolant from circulating from radiator to engine block)

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

After repairing the cause of the code, you clear the code with a scan tool.

User Avatar

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

User Avatar

no cause a 1994 may have a bigger engine

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

Fix the cause of the code that turned the light on.

User Avatar

A vacuum leak, a bad injector and if the check engine light is on, check the codes.

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

Really need to know the year and engine size. But you can check this, Does your engine have 2 lines just above the oil filter that run up the side of the engine and goes into the radiator on the drivers side ? If so then that is the engine oil cooler lines and the tubes in the radiator were the oil flows through to cool the oil are probley leaking into the radiator coolant. IT happens often. WILL NEED TO REPLACE RADIATOR. And flush out the cooling system real GOOD. Did your engine freeze from lack of antifreeze ? If the radiator fluid is cheery red looking then the transmission cooler that is built into the radiator is leaking. REPLACE RADIATOR. GOOD LUCK.

User Avatar

Yes.If you have no antifreeze in the radiator or engine,sometimes it will freeze.Usually a freeze plug in the engine will pop out before any major damage is done. Sometimes the block will crack,or the radiator will crack or burst if no anti freeze is in the system.

Remove the bolts on the front two "dogbones" (engine mounts) and with the vehicle in park, roll the vehicle forward to rotate the engine towards the radiator. Not too far that you cause damage to the delicate radiator fins. This will provide more space behind the motor to access the back three plugs. Hope this helps. "G"
