If your radiator isnt leaking and car is having a over heating problem and coolant spewing out. Chances are your thermostat needs replaced. possible the radiator needs to be flushed. But more likley its thermostat
bad thermostat, bad waterpump, plugged radiator, or the cooling system is filthy and needs flushed out.
Yes. Wall is no problem, as long as the thermostat is not installed above or near the radiator (or fcu or any other heating element).
Have flushed complete cooling system replaced water pump radiator thermostat clutch fan added 2gal straight anti freeze then filled to capacity with water and truck is still over heating. What else could possibly be wrong
check the fan clutch
2000 Pontiac grand am se keeps over heating I changed the water pump, the thermostat, radiator cap, head, and it is still over heating. make sure thermostat is going the right way , spring gose to the motor
sounds like your thermostat is stuck closed, maybe some of the debris loosened from the flush is blocking it.
You could have a bad water pump causing no coolant flow, inoperable radiator fans, a coolant leak,............
check the water pump
No. The thermostat controls the flow of water through the radiator, not the heating core. Using a thermostat with a higher temperature rating delay the opening of the thermostat (and the flow of water to the radiator) until that higher temperature is reached. This will cause the coolant to run hotter.
It could be a Head Gasket, Thermostat, water pump, bad radiator or just needs coolant. start with the cheapest which is a thermostat.
Better check your fan clutch, then maybe your water pump.
97 Grand AM Try replacing the radiator.
check the thermostat or the fan motor could be the problem or a leak in radiator. just a thought
it could either be your thermostat is bad, the radiator is bad, or you could have a blown head gasket.
Coolant leak, plugged radiator, failed water pump, inoperative fan.

You can learn to install a central heating thermostat on Energysavingtrust. You can also learn how to do it on Doityourself. These websites teach you how to install a central heating thermostat.
Electric underfloor heating is installed with a thermostat. Therefore, you can adjust the temperature to your personal liking just like people are used to with forced circulation air.
Head gaskets need to be done.
Stuck closed thermostat, cracked head, bad head gasket, low on coolant are some possiblities.
Could be many things. Failed/failing waterpump. Thermostat jammed open/closed. Radiator leaking.
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.
