Sounds Like A Bad Thermostat. Or The Hose Is In To Much Of A Curved Situtation. Suggest Make Sure Coolant Is Full, And Hose Is Not Collasped. Then Remove & Replace Thermostat. Still Have Problem, May Be Water Pump. Good Lucl

How does the radiator help the car run faster?

It doesn't, it helps cool the engine by running coolant through it and letting it air cool. The better the radiator = the better the cooling, thus making the engine more efficient.


What is proper fan sucking air through radiator to engine or blowing from engine to the radiator?

Actually, both are used. However, it is more common to pull air through the radiator towards the engine. This draws cooler outside air through the radiator. Pushing air from the engine towards the radiator means that you are pulling hot air from around the engine towards the radiator.

What does the radiator in a car do?

As coolant cycles through the engine, it absorbs heat from the engine, after which, it continues through the cooling system back to the radiator. As the coolant passes through the radiator, the heat is exchanged to the ambient air by way of airflow through the radiator fins (this is why it's important not to bend the radiator fins).


Engine hot cooling not hot?

Engine is Hot, Coolant is not HOThere engine is hot means above the engine operating temperature, Coolant is not hot means coolant in the radiator is not hot and the coolant is below or withing the operating temperature.i think there is no water blow out from the radiator cap if you have this problem then the following will not apply to your case.* water is not circulating through the radiator, either half of the pumped water is circulating through the radiator or another half circulates through the engine block because of thermostat. so please check the engine thermostat for proper function.


Golf 4 gti overheats but radiator stays coolwhat could be the problem?

Your thermostat is stuck closed. you will need to replace it. The thermostat controls the circulation through the radiator - when the engine heats up the thermostat is meant to switch circulation from just-engine to engine+radiator. Sounds like this isn't happening.

How do you flush the radiator on a '99 Chevy Silverado?

Drain the radiator by removing the plug on the bottom of the radiator or by removing the lower rad hose. Take the thermostat out which is at the engine end of the upper hose. Start the engine and run water from the garden hose through the radiator letting it flow out the upper rad hose until it is clean. If it has buildup in the radiator you will want ot run some commercial radiator cleaner through it. When it is clean, drain all of the water out and install 2 gallons of coolant and the thermostat.. Dispose of used coolant properly.


How does a cars radiator work?

Hi The water pump (Just like a heart)pushes the water/antifreeze through the engine block, and through the radiator where the fins in the radiator absorb some of the heat, and the air passing through the radiator cools the fluid down to be pumped back into the engine block, keeping the engine cool enough to drive. B.H.


If antifreeze is shooting through the radiator cap and the system is overheating is that a head gasket problem in a Saturn sc1 2000?

No that's a clogged radiator issue. However if the engine over heats to much, the head will warp and you'll need a new one. Replace your radiator, Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor, and thermostat.


What causes engine overheating?

I'm not a mechanic / technician but I can think of several things : In no particular order : - low engine coolant level , or no engine coolant because of a leak - engine thermostat sticking closed - restricted ( dirty ) radiator - water pump not circulating the engine coolant because of an impeller or belt problem - a problem with the engine cooling fan not running so air flows through the radiator any body else have any ideas ?

What does the radiator do in a car?

The radiator serves as a heat exchanger. The coolant absorbs heat from the engine as it passes through the cooling system. It loses this heat in the radiator, as heat from the coolant is transferred to the air which flows through the radiator.


How does the cooling system works on a 2003 lancer?

The water pump humps cool water from the radiator through the engine. Hot water. Leaves the engine and enters the top of the radiator. The hot water works its way through the radiator cooling itself.


Toyota Celica vvti no hot air engine overheating?

If the Toyota Celica VVTI is not blowing hot air through the heater, but the engine is overheating, there could be a problem with the radiator being plugged up. Sediment sometimes builds up in the radiator that can clog thermostats. Another problem might be the thermostat sticking or the water pump is leaking.

How does the water flow through an engine?

Generally the pump moves the coolant through the block, up into the back of the head(s), through the head(s), out the thermostat into the top of the radiator, through the radiator, out the bottom or side of the radiator and back to the pump.

What is the purpose of the radiator?

A car's radiator is used to help keep the engine cool. During operation, an engine's moving parts create friction, which produces heat. Coolant flows through the engine picking up that head and travels back to the radiator where it is cooled down by air flowing through the radiator coils. The cool coolant then travels back through the engine completing the cycle over and over.


Does the fluid in the radiator have to flow as soon as you turn the engine on?

No , the engine coolant will start flowing through the radiator when the engine coolant thermostat starts to open ( assuming everything is working properly ) Helpfull


What does the radiator do?

The radiator helps cool liquids that exits the engine. A tube at the top of the radiator flows the liquid into the radiator. Fans blow air into the radiator and cools this liquid. This liquid is then exited through the bottom of radiator and released back into the engine to be used. Radiator also holds coolant to to speed cooling process of liquid
