'04 Land Rover Discovery-started out running hot-mechanic rebuilt upper end of motor(rebuilt heads,new head gaskets). Still ran hot-then he replaced thermostat. Still ran hot -radiator was cked-gases getting into radiator. Mechanic decided was a cracked head. Put a new head on it. After 50/60 miles ran hot again. Car gauge says "running hot" mechanic hooked up to computer which said was not running hot. Put in a new temperature sending unit -car still runs hot. Motor is a V8 4.6L 278CID. Pl

I put new thermostat on and it started running very hot again. I drilled to holes in the thermostat to increase the water flow and it still ran hot. It's weird cause the bottom radiator hose was running very hot and the upper hose was ice cold. So I thought there was a clog somewhere. I flushed out the radiator and the heater coil and water was running through everything. I hooked everything back up and put thermostat back in and was running hot again. My buddy went to take the top radiator hose


Flushing a radiator at home is most often a waste of time. The chemicals used by a radiator shop are far stronger than anything you get at the parts supply house. What happens is that the flow you see is deceptive as the water tends to flow around a ... 1989 Jeep Wrangler

Had a "new" engine put into a 2002 Dodge 1500. Still running hot and oil pressure drops. How can I tell if the mechanic actually put a "new" engine in?


Not many ways to tell without taking the engine apart.There should be signs of new gaskets and shiny clean metal.A brand new engine is not really possible since Dodge probably stopped making them a few years ago. Most times you get a rebuilt ... Cars & Trucks

Went to PEP Boys they ran a diagnostic test and said the car needed a tune up. So we replaced the plugs, wires, distributor cap and distributor,IGN coil, Gas filter, air filter, oil change and the water pump since we had to remove it to get to the distributor. Put a new 180 degree thermostat in. Car still run poorly and now get hot at a stop. This never happened. Car still runs poorly just replaced the EGR valve. nothing made a difference. What is next? Patty Burman


My experince with PEP Boys is they do not honor their warrenties. But I would go back and complain about the car running hot since the only part of the cooling system they didn't change was the radiator they did something wrong. It should not be ru ... 1994 Chevrolet Caprice Classic

I put a new water pump on and my jeep and it still runs hot what can i do to stop it from running hot


Change the thermostat. Depending on the models it might just be 10 or less. Should sit on top. Follow the top hose from your radiator to the engine and you will see where the hose stops. Right there is your thermostat. You need to make sure you get o ... 1988 Jeep Cherokee

Car is running hotter than I like. I just had the heater core, radiator hoses, reservoir cap,replaced, put a 195 thermostat in it, new antifreeze and had the guy check if the radiator was plugged. All was good. Has original water pump but no problems out of it as far as leaking or sound. No milky oil and no bubbles in the reservoir. No white smoke from the tail pipe. And bled the coolant system like the book suggested so no air in the system. But still it is running to hot for my liking. It has


You would have to install a new rad.( you don't mention that it was ever changed 1996 ) and change the water pump if you want to eliminate all possible problems. Then take it from there. Also, have the timing checked. ... 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier

Sadly it sounds like you have a blown head gasket...Does the coolant  smell like exhaust?  I hope you don't but, everything points in that direction.  Try bleeding the coolant system. ... 2001 Dodge Durango

I recently bought a 1995 monte carlo that has an overheating problem. I changed the thermostat and it didn't help. Put a new radiator in, no help. There is no anti freeze in the oil pan. It runs smooth and at a good temp until I drive it. When the temp guage rises i start to loose my heat. I tried running it without the thermostat to see what would happen and it still overheated. It gets hot and blows anti-freeze into the overflow tank.


Sounds like you have a pressure leak. It will boil over at 212 degrees unless the system is under pressure. Likely places for a pressure leak are the radiator cap, water pump gaskets, radiator hoses and heater hoses. There is a pressure tester availa ... 1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

Before The Computer On My 1991 Vlovo 740 Turbo was rebulit I put in a new fuel pump relay and the car would not start and run , but if I put back the fuel puimp relay that somebody had put a jumper wire on it would run.Then the computer was rebuilt and the car would run on the relay with the jumper, but still not with the new relay. When you put the new relay in it start and runs about 30 seconds and then quits, but with the relay with the jumper car runs fine. So when the computer was bad did
