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 job. Your engine could overheat, perform more and more poorly, even cost you more money in the long run.Benefits of a Radiator FlushIt keeps your radiator running more efficiently.A Radiator flush prevents rust and corrosion in the radiator and all metal parts of the engine, heater core and water lines.It keeps your radiator running longer.It also keeps your engine running longer.A radiator flush boosts your vehicle's performance and power.It lubricates and protects your water pump.It protects your heater core (which provides you with heat inside the car).The work maintains your vehicle's maintenance requirements so you don't void the warranty.It can prevent corrosion that can lead to expensive repairs.A radiator flush reduces the chances of blown head gaskets in your engine block.Fresh antifreeze lubricates vital seals in the cooling system.The flush helps prevent summer radiator boil-overs and winter freeze-ups.

That's a strong possibility. It could also be a plugged radiator or even a faulty water pump or low coolant level.

If your 1995 Oldsmobile Aurora keeps overheating and the issue is not the thermostat or the water pump, it could be the cooling fan. It might also be the radiator (leaking) or the hoses between the engine and radiator, or the shroud could be clogged or damaged.

Keeps the water in the tank until you flush.

Antifreeze could be running out often due to a leak. It is important to inspect the radiator for small cracks or smoke.

You may have a bad radiator cap.

Oil is not a coolant, it is a lubricant, but it keeps the engine lubricated to prevent friction, which reduces heat and makes is run cooler. Water in the radiator, and the radiator fan, is what keeps the engine cool.

It could be your head gasket... is it blowing blue smoke out the back? or you could have a messed up valve or something It could be your head gasket... is it blowing blue smoke out the back? or you could have a messed up valve or something

You are getting water into the coolant. Most likely cause is a failed radiator/oil cooler. If the coolant level keeps reducing and transmission oil level keeps increasing then the above answer is correct.

you don't fill the radiator directly, there is no radiator fill cap. you fill the overflow reservoir and it keeps the radiator full. overflow reservoir is spherical plastic near firewall. power steering reservoir is up front near battery.

It could mean he is getting an erection, or his clothes are uncomfortable, just like when a girl adjusts her bra.

Blockage in cooling system? Empty system and run some radiator flush through for 20 minutes and refill. If that doesn't fix then maybe thermostat water pump is faulty.

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 DON"T STICK YOUR FINGERS IN A BELT OR THE FAN ) also , the radiator could be restricted - a cooling system flush might be in order How's the radiator front , does it look clean or are there lots of bugs stuck to it ? I assume the coolant isn't low and your belts are fine , and your temperature gauge is working properly ( P.S. I'm not a mechanic / technician , those are just the things I thought of )

Flush-free niacin capsules can be bought at CVS. Niacin is helps in the metabolism of energy. It also keeps the nervous system, heart, and skin healthy.

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 and found that the radiator blocked as they were built with the cylinder head restricting the flow, so at speed it WILL OVERHEAT SO just do a good radiator clean,then reverse flush the motor with head every 12months or so.bazza

If your vehicle keeps overheating, you should flush the cooling system, replace the coolant, and replace the thermostat. In fact, you should have done that before this.

Getting plenty of water and fiber in your diet keeps your colon healthy.

keeps them from drying out and helps protect them by trying to flush out foreign particles, such as dust, hair, etc.

bad thermostat or bad heat gasket
