You flush the radiator but it keeps getting hot what could it be?
have you changed the thermostat. If you have flused the rad. and it still gets hot I would say more than likely it is the therm. Make sure the outside of the rad. or fins are washed out to. good luck.
No matter what kind of vehicle you own, it will benefit from an annual radiator flush. A radiator is your car's cooling system. Radiators hold water and a specially designed coolant, antifreeze. As the heart of cooling systems, they keep engines from overheating and engine blocks from warping, cracking or seizing with heat. If your radiator is clogged with rust, sediment or debris that occur naturally in a cooling system, it can't do an effective…
Your 96 LHS is overheating and you replaced the thermostat The radiator hose keeps getting stiff and the car overheats How can you tell if it is a water pump issue or a head gasket?
Your 1993 Dodge Intrepid keeps over heating you have already changed the thermostat thermostat housing upper radiator hose radiator and pressure cap what is left to change?
Hi My Laguna II has a problem where the tempertature gauge keeps rising to STOP Warning lights if I drive 65 mph plus and there is no warm air getting to the cabin any ideas Help much appreciated?
1988 ford f150 keeps getting hot put new thermostat battery plugs wires starter cilenoid still gets hot any advise?
If the engine is running hot , the new thermostat was a good idea ! also , it could be your water pump ( when the engine is warmed up and the thermostat is open so the top radiator hose is warm , squeeze the top radiator hose and then stop squeezing , you should feel a surge of coolant going through the hose if your water pump is working , BE CAREFULL THAT YOU…
Your 2002 Mazda 626 4cyl keeps over heating when driving down the street not even 1 mile But when left to idle in park it will not over heat what could this be?
I'd start by checking the coolant and look for leaks. I'd go further by seeing if the thermostat was good. You can grab hold of the upper hose on many cars and feel if water is flowing or getting hot. Is the fan working when your parked? Is there anything in front of your radiator. Is the water pu mp working or leaking. yes this model has a big problem. i have worked on many…

2000 Ford Focus ZTS keeps over heating you have changed the thermostat hoses radiator cap and it is not leaking anywhere why does it keep overheating?
IT could have an exaust leak somewhere or if it has an electric cooling fan the fan could be bad, short in it wiring or blown fuse Is your aquastat working? Is the radiator clogged up with sediment? If it has overheated before, is the head warped? Your question is a lot of questions. Take the radiator cap off with the radiator full and gun the engine while it's still cool. If the water runs…
Your 1993 Pontiac Sunbird LE 4cyl keeps over heating If you remove the thermostat it stays cool I replaced the thermostat twice what could it bevI have no coolantleak or water in the exhaust?
I was having the same problem with my car. When you take the thermostat out it will automatically read cool. But I later found out that I had a leak in my radiator and had to replace it. Turned out that my heads are warped and was leaking oil into my water and into the radiator itself. Once i replaced the radiator its been fine.
The fan is electric and is controlled by a thermoswitch in the radiator. When you turn the engine off the fan keeps running to prevent boilover until the coolant in the radiator cools off. Then it should switch off automatically. If it does not either the radiator thermoswitch or the fan motor relay is stuck "ON." Rarely it could be a wiring problem but this is not likely. Whichever unit is bad has to be…
If you are talking about the low coolant light then it is just low of coolant. Add coolant to the recovery tank. If you are talking about the coolant temperature light, then the engine is overheating. You may need to have the cooling system serviced. Drain the coolant and flush the system. Install a new thermostat, and add a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water.
1994 buick park avenue ultra the radiator cooling fans keep running with engine off is there a relay or fuse if there is please tell me their location thanks tony?
That could be normal operation. The fan is controlled by a thermal switch. That keeps it from boiling over if the radiator is hot after the key is turned off. If it shuts off after it cools down, I wouldn't worry about it. There is a caution note on the radiator that says the fan can start up at any time.
What could be wrong with a 98 buick lesabre that keeps losing antifreeze from the radiator an found in the oil it also blows thick white smoke from the tailpipe?
You have a blown head gasket. Antifreeze that should be going through a hole in your gasket and then cooling the engine head is going into a cylinder. From there it is going out an exhaust pipe as steam. It is also getting into an oil drain hole and getting into the oil pan. It is inexpensive to get a head gasket fixed compared to the cost of having a blown engine replaced.
