Your 1989 ford with a 460 is over heating the top hose is super hot while bottom hose is cold could this be the water pump or is this a bigger problem?
it could be the water pump but i would be 80% sure its probly the thermostat which runs about 8-10 bucks at autozone. you can check it by putting it in a pot of water on the stove turn on the heat and and use a thermometer to watch the water temp with you vehicle it should open around 195 degrees if it dosent then there is your problem. to find the thermostat follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator back to the engine the hose connects to the thermostat housing unbolt the thermostat housing (usually 2 bolts) and remove the thermostat replacement is in the opposite order also get a thermostat gasket to replace the one you will mess up when you remove the thermostat housing there are like .99cents it could also be that the cooling system has become clogged with sludge not letting the coolant flow to check that remove you radiator cap and look into your radiator and see if there is a lot of sludge type stuff usually brownish in color if that is the case have a cooling system flush done on you vehicle. DO NOT DO ANYOF THIS UNTIL THE VEHICLE HAS SAT NOT RUNNING FOR AT LEAST ONE AND A HALF HOURS AND HAD A CHANCE TO COOL OR YOU COULD SUSTAIN MAJOR BURNS i hope this helps and happy holidays
What could be problem if Whirlpool Dryer Duet not heating that has everything working OK but it is not heating?
There are a number of possible problems when a dryer is not getting hot. If it's an electric dryer the heating element may have burned in two. Or the relay that switches power to the heating element could have gone bad. If it's a gas dryer the igniter that lites the burner could have failed. The control that commands the heat to come on could have failed. These are other possibilities
Why won't the Whirlpool Duet Electric Dryer heat up after the 220 fuse box blew out what could be the problem and how do I correct it?
Your 1997 ford is over heating it is leaking from the radiator cap on the resavor what could be causing this problem i have tried everything?
From easiest to hardest: Does radiator have enough coolant? Is the fan working? Could be a bad thermostat. Water pump (there is a small hole in the bottom of the water pump. If there is water dripping out of the "weep" hole, then the water pump is bad). Could be a blown head gasket. (Is there any water in the oil or does the coolant in the radiator have a fuel smell?
