Isthe overheating for real, or is the gauge simply measuring a bithigh? If you rev above 2000 rpm's it moves the air around and temporarily stops the popping. Unless you are or know a handy mechanic in your family, you will need to pay to have this done. The heat of the exhaust quickly dry the leak and you just smell coolant without see anything. If you are running just straight water in there right now that is definitely why it is overheating.
To remove the bulb just pull the glass part away from the socket and it should come out. If you can remove and apparently you did, I would just replace it. Let engine reach operating temperature. Stands up to even the most demanding automotive cooling systems. It was just time for a new radiator I guess. Mar 23, 2013 For car running hot and overheating issues, I suggest to you go through this help links. Make sure the water is from the radiator.
My guess after seeing the design of this thermostat is that there is no way for the coolant to flow with the thermostat off since all flow goes through the attached tubes. On the highway it takes roughly 3 miles. The water pump appears to be working by observing the flow in the tank. Alternatively, you could have received a defectivereplacement part unlikely , or the wrong temperature thermostat. It could be possible that a sensor on the fan is not allowing the fans to spin fast enough or the fans may have a sensor which controls the speed of the fan to coincide with the heat that needs to be removed. If you still don't overheat, you've fully purged the air from the system. I have removed them without dropping the starter but learned that in most cases it is easier to drop the starter down to access it.
The owners manual should have a listing of warning lights included in it. Make sure you refill the cooling system before restarting the engine, and then purge the system of air shouldn't be much unless you drained the whole system. I believe whats happening is your engine is forcing air into your cooling system through a blown head gasket. Engine overheats in slow driving. Because like i said in previous comments it was not showing hot until i replaced the sensor. Just because its not in your oil.
As his experience, he never ever need to change head gasket on 3. If it's possible use gloves or a towel to hold the new bulb when you install it because if you touch the new bulb with your bare hands it will leave behind the oils that our bodies naturally produce. Remove the 2 10mm bolts that fasten the thermostat housing to the engine block. The water pump appears to be working by observing the flow in the tank. I am not sure if 3.
My question to you is - after you replaced the hoses which for future reference, usually aren't the cause of overheating , did you burp the cooling system? Uses high venturi for maximum cooling capacity during high temperature, high load oepration. Mainly due to the tight fit of the engine. Also, replace or test the pressure cap on the reservoir every few years or whenever you have a cooling problem. It was just time for a new radiator I guess. When engine has cooled sufficiently, recheck coolant level. I flushed it out twice, but I could not get all of the gunk out.
Odd that you guys would fire this post back up. I pushed air out for about 3 hours yesterday afternoon. Simply install a new Oldsmobile Intrigue thermostat from AutoZone that ensures optimal operating temperature in your vehicle's engine and prevent corrosion and overheating that makes your engine inefficient and unreliable. You may just well have a head gasket problem. Why yes, yes it does. If you remove it , the engine will not reach the proper temperature and the computer will sense the cool running engine and will enrich the fuel mixture to compensate for the situation. What exactly did you do to the water pump to determine that its working fine? As long as 2000 rpm is maintained it will cool down.
But I know it does. Start the car, and watch the gauge. There was gunk in the radiator that I couldn't flush out. It takes about an hour and a half to do. Do not run engine anywhere near the red zone as damage can result Posted on Sep 21, 2012 Mine did that last summer and is now fixed.
If the heater is turned on, the engine temp goes up to high mark on temp gauge. I didn't see anyway to remove the thermostat itself from these metal hoses. Once you remove the coils, you'll see this rubber hose thing inside these holes. You may have a clogged radiator feel the surface of it carefully - if you find irregularity in the temperature of the radiator's surface - cold spots, for example - you will need to remove the radiator and have it blown out and pressure-checked by a radiator shop. Because like i said in previous comments it was not showing hot until i replaced the sensor. If you keep on having overheating trouble, then you have a more serious issue than just air in the system.
