Asked in Cars & Vehicles, Thermostats
93 ED Falcon temp gauge goes up and down worse when cold seems to come down quicker when you gun the engine is the head gasket on the way out as advised or just a stuffed thermostat?
Your head gasket could be on the way out if there is oil in the coolant or it is consuming coolant. Replace the thermostat before you start suspecting the head gasket. ...
Asked in Chevy Corsica
1990 Chevy corsica low coolant lite on coolant is full car not overheating an there is not a sensor in the coolant resovoir what should you do thanx?
There is a sensor, shaped like a smooth plastic finger that pokes up from below along the engine side of the resevoir. You should see a little "bumped out" place there. Don't replace it. It doesn't touch the coolant. It relies on a magnet on a float just on the other side of the plastic inside the resevoir. When the coolant is full and hot, try banging on the resevoir. Don't break it! It seems that whatever float system they are...

Asked in Cars & Vehicles
Why coolant leaks when engine is off but heat wont work when engine running?
The heat is not working because you are very low on coolant, probably because of the leak. Seems to me that it should leak worse when it is running, so I am going to assume you are talking about the coolant overflowing the reservoir, in which case goes back to you being low on coolant and the engine boiling the coolant. ...

It is not really stationary, it just appears to be. It is the star that appears to have least movement in the night sky. Stars that are near to it also don't seem to move much, just appearing to go around it. The further a star is from it, the more it seems to move. ...
What is wrong when low coolant light is on and the car seems to be overheating but the coolant tank is full on a my 1995 Pontiac grand am se Ijust replaced the radiator a week ago waterpunp a month?
maybe the thermostat You might have air stuck in the system causing the rad fluid to not flow properly, remove one of the heater core hoses from the heater core once the engine has gotten hot. The pressure will help help flush it. Put it back on and check the overflow tank after you start the engine again.. ...
Asked in Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo
I just replace the water pump on a 1992 Jeep Cherokee Laredo but it still seems to over heat and coolant still blowing out everywhere how do i trouble shout this issue?
A thermostat stuck in the closed position is very common in overheating problems. Simple to check: Remove the radiator cap and start the engine. Look through he filler neck to see if you see the coolant circulate when the engine reaches normal operating temperature. If you don't see water circulate, more than likely the thermostat is stuck. ...

Asked in Chevy Camaro RS
What is every possible cause of your 92 Camaro RS 305 TBI overheating?
I had this problem with mine. I had to hook the cooling fan up to a toggle switch, the previous owner didn't know what he was doing and messed up the wiring to the fan when he was working on it. I tapped into my radio hot wire and ran a toggle and live lead to the fan. Other reasons could be bad thermostat (doesn't open), coolant sensor not kicking in the fan, might even be bad coolant. I found my overheating...

Asked in Ford Focus
Why does your ford focus keep getting airlocks and overheats?
You have a coolant leak. Maybe a head gasket leak too, now, if it's been overheated. Run it (not drive it) with the radiator cap off, and see if there is any pressure in the cooling system. Just put your hand where the cap was (best with engine cold, of course). Take a look at the spark plugs too. The additives in the coolant usually form a deposit on the plug - you will see one or two that look different...
