there could be to problems the lines vcould be airlocked or there isnot enought coolant in Bad water pump. Incorrect thermostat or installed upside down. Spring goes toward engine. Cooling fan not working due to blown fuse, bad fan motor, or defective thermal relay. And possibly air in the system. Bleed the system by using bleeder valves if equipped or by jacking up the front of the car, and removing the radiator car,(Engine Cold), start the engine and let it run until no more air escapes. Keep it full.

How do you ensure there is no air lock when replacing a thermostat?

First you need to run the engine until the thermostat opens, you will see the water running through the radiator. the coolant will go down into the radiator You need to continue to add coolant until you don't see anymore air coming up, or coolant go down into the radiator maybe three times that the thermostat opens. When you have got most of the air out you will see the water running inside of the radiator then stop when the thermostat closes. Cycle it two or three times to be sure.

Make sure the radiator is full of water, don't just check the overflow tank, but do make sure the car is cold before removing the radiator cap. Also the thermostat could be frozen closed or you could have a failed water pump. Try replacing the thermostat and flushing the cooling system first. Don't forget to buy a thermostat gasket when purchasing the thermostat.

What will cause overflow to bubble and car gets hot?

Either: 1) Thermostat is bad or 2) Radiator is clogged or 3) if your losing fluid or hearing a noise, check your water pump. If your not losing fluid or hearing a noise, the service the radiator by having it flushed. If this doesn't solve your problem, then change the thermostat. If your still having the problem then your radiator may need further service or even replacing. I'm having the same issue right now. I'm replacing my thermostat next. If it still is running hot, I'm going to take the radiator out and have it serviced. Good luck! And remember, DONT let the temperature get in the red!!

Why does your top radiator get soft while the engine is running?

If the question is: why does your top radiator hose get soft while the engine is running? If that's what u want to know, it's because the thermostat in the engine opens to flow the coolant thru the motor to keep the operating temperature from getting to hot. It's stores water in the radiator which cools the water and the thermostat blocks it until a predetermined temp.
