Have new radiator, water pump hoses, belts; system has been bled; experimented with bypassing the heater core; thermostat removed...car still overheats. Also, coolant goes to the overflow bottle, but often does not return to the radiator. Lately, have had to add coolant to radiator, but later it is low on coolant and must add more, even when overflow bottle is at proper level.

I have a 2003 Kia Sedona and i am trying to get the A/C to work. It appears that the system is low on coolant. A gauge and fill hose connected to the"low" side indicates that. I have done this on Ford products and they draw the coolant (R134a) from the can into the system. The compressor kicks in and out until the se system nears reading full. I can not get the compressor to "kick in" on the Sedona. I have all controls set to max AC and have checked all related fuses... We recently had the alte

I have 2003 Pontiac Aztek. Over the last two weeks the car keeps having overheating issues which is to say the temp gauge goes up and down and occasionally we get a hot coolant light. I have been careful to not run it in the red (shut it down right way). I have had the thermostat changed and the bled air out of the system. When it gets hot the top hose of the coolant system is very hot and the bottom is cold or luke warm. There does not appear to be any coolant in the oil and we do not

I have a 1995 EF FALCON. I have a constant battle with the cooling system. Loses coolant. I replace parts that fix the problem and not long after it is somethingh else. I have replace hoses, thermostsat, radiator, waterpump twice, coolant overflow container, the coolant level warning switch seperatley. The low coolant warning light has just come on again today. What could cause this to happen so regulary. Is it just a chain reaction of related parts. As far as i can tell there is no noticeable


Your vehicle is what...16 years old? Parts do not last forever. I can't see changing the pump twice unless the old one was defective. There is no reason to replace a pump unless it leaks or is noisy. OK, now the low coolant light is on. Is the coo ... Ford F

Coolant system, thermostat schematic engines runs cold heater runs very weak, temp gauge creeps up slowly on idle goes back to cold range when driving. I suspect thermostat is stuck in open position but I don't see the housing, at least not along the top hose, the bottom hose looks like it could be it, I'm just not sure.


Neither am i to be truthful ,but a lot of vehicles have the thermostat in a housing on the side of the block that the bottom connects to so yes you could be right here,a lot of VW vehicles have the stat in the bottom hose.temporary fixya solution is ... Mazda B2300

Running hot? I have a 2005 dodge neon. Flushed the coolant system,changed oil, replaced spark plugs/wires, thermostat, hoses,and now it runs hot but the gauge doesn't say hot? Ran fine before the tune up. Gauge goes up to the marker above the cold line but not further and then goes down when the fan/thermostat kicks in. What could be making it run hot? What could make the gauge not register hot when it is running/boiling over?

I have a leak in the heating and cooling system on a part that i dont even know what its called it is located on the firewall looks like the smaller hose from the water pump comes in one side and another one goes to the exhaust manifold also looks like it has some kind of diaphram valve connected to it the car is old sobut has very low miles want to know if i will be able to find the part easy or if i can bypass it and run with no heat


It sounds like the heater core, thats where the hoses are going to and coming from. I would check for a leak under the dash as well. The heater core is a small radiator that allows the fan to blow and warm the air. A bypass is possible but would take ... 1989 Dodge Omni

I have a 1995 buick skylark. There is a 1/2" hose that comes out of the fire wall on the passangers side of the car in the engine compartment. the hose is a 90 degree elbow and then just stops. There is coolant leaking out of this hose when I fill up the coolant system. What is it? and where is the rest of the hose.


That hose is to let the condensed water out of the box(from the AC system) If antifreeze is coming out there ,has to be a leak in the heater core. Hose is supposed to just direct the water to the ground,open on the end. ... 1995 Buick Skylark

I have a 1994 toyota camry v6, today my car boiled all the coolant out of the reservoir tank. I had a problem with disapearing coolant a few months back. I flushed the system tightened all the hoses and add a stop leak to the cooling system and refilled with coolant, the car ran great for a while. I never let the car over heat I could always tell when it needed coolant when I would hear the fans working extra hard to keep the car cool and when I turn the heat on full blast the temp would fall.

I have a 97 88 and the shop put a resistor in the system but my security light still comes on. I did some digging around the internet and found that either a total bypass system needs to be installed or just put in a auto start. Would putting in a auto start work? or is there such a part or product to be purchased such as a system bypass module?


Not sure what the shop did, but the procedure at http://vats.likeabigdog.com/ usually works. Remote start will not work, as it has no inherent bypass. you can install a ... 1997 Oldsmobile 88

My 2002 Chevy Duramax is blowing coolant out the overflow hose. My temprateure never goes above 220 and my trans temp never goes above 200 but it seems that if they both reach those temps my truck blows out the coolant. If I am driving up a grade or pulling a trailer the temps will get to what I consider my "normal" temps but the truck will blow coolant and the temps never drop back down even when I have completed the incline. Once the temp gets to 200+ it just stays there. Is this a thermos


No, if it would have been it the engine would have badly overheated long ago. No, in your case it's almost surely the radiator - it's partially clogged with lime and the water flow isn't up to par.\012\012\012You will gonna have to flush the ra ... Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
