Is it sare to remove the expansion valve of the radiator

Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

NO. The thermostat valve maintains the engine temperature which is good for engine performance, pollution control and fuel economy. But don't forget to use the radiator coolant which has added benefits because it is antifreeze, anti boil, has leakage detecting fluorescence color and rust inhibitors in it.

I own a 2006 chevy 2500HD with a 6.0L gas engine. I need to do a coolant flush. Through lots of research I found the flush valve for coolant systems was discontinued by GM in 2003. There is still a valve on my radiator however it looks to be plugged. Before removing the radiator hose to do a reverse flush (no radiator cap only a surge tank) I need to drain coolant above that level. Is there a way to do this or do I use the surge tank cap as I would the actual radiator cap?

Nissan Sunny 2004 model, manual transmission, 1.6 litre engine: problem: Radiator got leakage from the top side (at the junction of plastic and metal). The leakage is very fast that in 5km the water goes off. No epoxy or sealant is working at this high temperature. This leakage occured due to the thermo valve blockage. Now the thermo valve is removed. Is there any solution other than changing the radiator

Electrical problem problem with my A/C My 15 amp fuse in the engine compartment fuse box keep popping out after afew seconds,can't seem to figure it out,but if I disconnect the lo pressure sensor from the expansion valve ok,but my radiator fan won.t come on and compressor clutch is off,and also if i disconnect the connector right under the expansion valve the fuse is ok. the connector is connected to some kind of black sensor..also if i take out the A/C clutch relay the fuse is ok..,,help


When you are disconnecting the low pressure switch, or high pressure switch, you are stopping the power going to the A/C clutch. So, that means that your A/C clutch is shorted out. Unplug the compressor, and see if the fuse blows.If it doesn't you n ... 1994 Dodge Caravan

I've just replaced the radiator on my 1996 Volvo 850 (non-turbo). Mine is (to the best of my knowlege) 2.4 liter, 20 valve with only transmission cooler lines (the radiator has a mounting ear on each side). I rember when I was removing the old one (upper hose connection was snapped off inside of the hose!), there was a small vacuum pulloff dashpot on the driver's side of the fan shroud with a hose attached to it. This had to be removed (along with unplugging all the modules and connections assoc

In order to reach the PCV valve on my Ford Focus I had to remove a thermostat housing. Doing this casued radiator fluid to flow into the hole where the PCV valve sits. I installed the new valve, and now car idles rough, smells like rotten eggs. Could the water going into the hole where the valve sits caused this problem?


The coolant could have gotten into the sump, change the oil and oil filter. If it spilt into the vacuum side of the pcv. valve it will have been sucked in to the cylinders via the inlet manifold , fouling spark plugs and oxygen censer. ... Ford Focus

1993 camry v6 has the old refrigerant and no longer cools well. The garage says it is likely to be the compressor but I have read that the expansion valve can cause trouble. How do I find out which it is? To replace the valve apparently involves removing the whole dashboard at great expense.

Timing chain hi, i own a nissan JX 1.4 16 valves 1993 model. my son borrowed it and came back complaining that the car was overheating. i added water and ran the engine on idle. suddenly water was spewing from the radiator opening and the reservoir. two things could cause this. the thermostat could be one cause but i removed this years ago. so i suspect it could be a leaking cylinder head gasket. so i am now in the process of removing the cylinder head to have it refaced in the machine shop. my

I have a 2004 dodge ram 1500 4.7 that overheated once. I replaced water pump thermostat fan clutch and radiator hoses. Problem was fixed and then a day later it started making a terrible ticking sound so I pin pointed it to the right side rear of the motor and proceeded to the process of removing the valve cover. When I did sure enough one of the rocker arms fell out of position on cylinder # 8 on the valve closet to the cab exhaust I believe. Managed to get it back in place and it runs good exc
