You have a 1994 ford escort lx 19 liter w ac changed thermstat and flushed cooling system the engine never gets to operating temp is this a radiator issue or water pump?
Since you mention flushing the system, you could have big air pocket in the cooling system. Each time you run it, let it cool down then check the level in the radiator, not just the overflow tank. Also the thermostat could be in backward, or a faulty one (even though it's new) Never open a radiator cap if it is HOT! Those would be the first two places to look.
some cooling systems, you can check by removing the radiator cap when the water is cool. Then crank the vehicle and let it run until it reaches operating temp. If the water reaches or exceeds operating temp with no flow seen inside of the radiator, it could possible mean that your cooling system is clogged. Also a good indication is if there is rust deposits around the filler neck on the radiator.
Not enough coolant in the cooling system - Improper ratio of coolant to water in the system - Improper or failing radiator pressure cap - Cooling system water pump may be failing - Radiator fins may be dirty or blocked. - radiator cooling fans are not operating correctly - cooling system is dirty and may need flushing.
You have changed the thermostat but your 1997 ford contour is still overheating What could the problem be?
Many things can cause an engine to run hot, make sure that the cooling system is full, that there are no leaks, make sure the cooling fan is operating properly, make sure that the there is nothing blocking air circulation thru the radiator fins, check for corrosion inside the radiator causing blockage and reduced cooling.
What is the function of the Thermostat in the cooling system of the Honda Civic 1996 LXi model What is it that the engine temperature runs cooler when this thermostat is removed?
The thermostat closes (preventing the circulation of cooling fluid through the radiator) while the coolant is below the setpoint. Once the fluid rises to the setpoint, the thermostat opens. This assures that the engine is operating at a specific temperature. Engines are far more efficient when operating at a higher temperature... so long as it isn't TOO high. Without a thermostat, the coolant constantly circulates through the radiator and cools as much as the radiator…
What would cause 1995 ahieva s to over heat gradually you have changed the anti-freeze and it does the same thing?
When it is winter time your transmission runs great in the summer time it overheats you already changed the thermostat and the relay sensor?
Why could possibly cause the temperature gauge on a Nissan Maxima to raise after the car is idling for a couple of minutes?
Not necessarily! Let it cool down then check the radiator water level and the water overflow reservoir tank. In a properly operating system the reservoir adds water as needed to the radiator when it cools down after you quit driving. #1. The radiator should be full of water and the reservoir tank should be 3/4 full of water. #2. At a certain temperature or with the "AC on" the radiator fan(s) should be sucking air…
Why does my 97 Subaru overheat but when you accelerate it cools off I already changed the thermostat 3 times and It has a brand new cooling system.?
How do you get all the air out of a cooling system after changing the thermostat for a 1995 grand prix 3100?
A car doesn't need radiation, it needs a radiator. The heat is released from the radiator, which is part of it's water cooling system. All internal combustion engines require some type of cooling system to control the operating temperature of the engine. Basically there are two types of cooling systems for gas engines: air cooled and water cooled. An air cooled system for a car would be ineffective because the engine is enclosed thus it…
