Ford Windstar
Chevy Camaro Z28

Why would your 1997 Windstar have no heat and have a lot of pressure in your radiator and over heat - you have changed radiator cap - hoses and thermoastat and the motor is rebuilt?

* A water pump failure could cause this.

* If the pump is turning backwards due to the serpentine belt being improperly installed

* but it sounds like a bad or mis-installed head gasket would be the most probable.

Another suspect: thermostat installed backwards

Not very likely - the Windstar was significantly redesigned in 1999, and the dimensions of the vehicle were changed.

Not likely as the Windstar was significantly changed starting in 1999.For a definitive answer, check with an auto salvage/recycler/junk yard. They'll know for absolute sure.

Check the grille on the front of the radiator and be sure that it is clean of all mud and debris otherwise the radiator is not able to pull air through to cool the water. You can clean that grille by removing the radiator from the truck and lightly pressure washing it.

yes the air/fluid gets hot and expands. The pressure within the cooling system should be what ever the radiator cap is set for, usually 15 to 16 psi. If it is more than that, replace the radiator cap.

No they are not the same - the engines changed from 98 to 99.

If the radiator or reservoir cap is bad it could cause overheating because the system will not build up the proper pressure. Also the fan clutch could be worn out which would keep the fan from spinning fast enough to cool the radiator.

I would look at the ignition or fuel pump. most of the time it is the fuel pump. on a 98 if the pump has not been changed the old one will not produce the right pressure, it will be to low.

The coolant system is designed to operate at a specific pressure. Switching to an 18psi cap will put too much pressure on the system and could cause part failures, like blown hoses.

Igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks can be changed by high temperatures and pressure, and the resultant rock is called metamorphic, because its form has been changed.

Metamorphic rocks have been changed by heat or pressure. This can be a change in size, shape, or arrangement of minerals.
