What do you think about this video?

David Dart: I just replaced my radiator and water pump and timing belt a few months ago and now all of a sudden my radiator starting leaking. As soon as I put the antifreeze in the bowl it drains right out of the radiator. What could cause this? I also replaced my thermostat as well.

Terrell Peoples: My car runs a little hot at idle not but not in the red it was 93 degrees outside but feel like 103 wen I get going driving slow or fast the needle goes down it didnt do it this morning 4:30am) idk if its cause of the hot weather or what I just need to no and the fan works cause I hear it 

scotty miller: hey i have a 2001 dodge intrepid 3.2 and i have bad cv axels but before i replace them i have a knocking or pinging sound when my car gets hot (about half my temp gauge).

P.S ive done changed oil oil filter and plugs.

El Caballero: my 96 Land Rover Discovery keeps overheating once AC is turned on, if I leave AC off my vehicle will get hot eventually. My mechanic advised to get fan blades as one was not working, both replaced, kept getting hot so he advised I do a radiator flush which I did but same problem persisted, he said thermostat had some corrosion, fixed issue but keeps getting hot! ?

ReaLifeVideos420: Please help this is weird, just recently replaced the radiator in my car, but when the car is idle for about 10 min the temp gauge will make its way to a little over half, observing under the hood, the fans did kick in but then i kinda smelled the anti freeze, i turned the car off, didn't notice any leaks i then opened where ur suppose to refill the car with anti freeze and it i can see anti freeze start to shoot right into the container and want to burst out the lid so i closed it quickly ... any idea about what could be happening here? car is a 2012 dodge charger if that helps.

Guimard Brutus: Hey I was driving my engine cut off what should I do?

Mutasem Amayreh: Thanks for the video; it's actually very telling. I would like to ask you a question regarding the leaking thing...em,,I don't think my car has leaks and I normally drive at a low speed and all of a sudden that red warning light sign whatever pops up and I'm totally screwed. My van doesn't work properly could be the problem em I mean I sometimes drive for like 4-5 minuets and the warning sign is up glowing :(

Jeane Tui: thank you for this video! I have an important question. I have a 2006 Chevy Malibu and just recently it started overheating. I cant drive it at all. I put in coolant because it was very low and noticed that when i fill it up it immediately leaks out. when i turn my car off and put in coolant, a pond of liquid leaks from my car. not sure if its coolant, but I know it is not water because it does have a smell to it.. do I need to use a pressure tester to determine exactly where the leak is? 

Javier Lucero: Hi I drive a 04 mazda mpv and somedays it overheat sometimes when I have the ac on other days its fine. when the car is off their is a sweet smell mixed with a little bit of gas and I cannot detect where its coming from. Could you help me...

r33l carrington: I changed my radiator,thermostat, and water pump..stIll overheats 'm lost on my 2000 Chevy venture 3.8

ldj020423: hi i have a 94 cadillac deville it ran hot on the freeway for the first time when i added water to it there was rust coming out and if u crank it up within 5 to 10 minutes its runnin hot again. A machanic told me i had a cracked head gasket but there was no milky resadue in the oil i dont know if he was trying to stiff me or what but i really need ur help

Alberto Reyes: Hi. I am having overheating problems on my 2000 eclipse. Is overheating in low speed even if the a/c is running. Can you help me with this problem

inlove3074: Hi what about when the coolant of the radiator gets in the canister and overheat car??

deepak kalra: I noticed some smoke coming out from the air vent inside the car. And dashboard got heated, also the indicator showed that car temp is overheated which just close to red mark. I immediately called my mechanic and he told me that there was some water coming out from inside the car. Also to rectify he removed heater pipes and connected both inlet and outlet pipes of heater which supplies water directly to engine. Now my heater doesn't work and the pipe is now connected to engine (both inlet and outlet of heater) so that water flows inside the engine and not to heater as it is now cut off. Mechanic told me that this will not affect engine and you can carry on with Air conditioning system but heater system will not work. My concern is whether my car engine will be damaged with this solution? Is this the proper solution ?

G H: my car is overheating on the freeway and when i turned the heater on there wasn't much heat coming out? any ideas???

Samantha Johnson: Plz help, 2013 Chrysler 300 started displaying the hot temp symbol on the dash but the gauge didn't move over to HOT it just normally stayed in the middle, 30 sec of driving later the car just completely went down and sounded as if the engine kept trying to turnover till i quickly shut it off from the ignition, followed by some steam from the engine.. what could the cause of this be? =( I'm scared.

Erik Zeynl: Hello ,My car is overheating when i use air conditioner and radiator hose was in pres like ball and cooling fan working and stop ,working ,stops .I change thermostat, water cap and fan resistor .The problem not solved .What to advise me .My cooling fan is electronic .

levi knox: On my 98 oldsmobile cutlass keeps overheating changed water pump t stat no white foam in oil keep loosing colant out of the over flow any suggestions 

caleb tetloff: my dad was driving up a hill and the car stopped and overheated we open the radiator and it sounded like a teapot and steam shot out of it. we we had jut gotten off the high way. we put water in it and noticed it did not have coolant in it so if we put coolant in it will it stop over heating?

Joel N: I watch your video nice video explanatory,I am mechanic but but when it comes to check for plugged or flow problem I am not that good or have the right Techniques , I will give you an example I have one customer that calls me because his vehicle is being over heating he told me he already replace the thermostat and radiator cap, when I get to the vehicle I checked for cooling fan operation and they came on on time according to temperature, he told me is been loosing coolant so I pressure tested the system and no leaks external and holds pressure, next test I did is block tester fluid , fluid never change and temperature at idle was very high fans on, and a lot of pressure coming out from radiator cap , vapor and trowing out coolant still did not change color of block tester fluid, I touch upper and lower radiator hoses and both were hot and pressurized. I am suspecting of radiator flowing or plugged, the front of radiator fins are clear, how do you test for plugged or flow problem I have a temp gun but the front is cover with condenser and the other side with coolant fans , would you give me some tips how test radiators on vehicles please, thank you for sharing.

Ronald Jones: I have a problem. . When Im driving, my car runs cool. When I slew down or stop at a light it starts to get hot. As soon as I'm rolling again it starts to cool. What can that be? ? I put a brand new thing of coolant, put a new radiator, and still get the same problem

Cory Sanfilippo: Hey there, so I have a 79 BMW with the inline six 528i . I live in Arizona and its hot. I just bought the vehicle and replaced the water pump and got rid of the thermostat. I did a radiator flush and cleaning. I filled back up and did the regular all around service, oil, tranny brakes. She I start the car. There is smoke emitting from the exhaust manifold instantly but doesn't have a rattle like its lose? And suggestions. Also. When I start it. Within two minutes my coolant is just bubbling in my reservoir and really hot. Do you have any idea what could be wrong? Thank you very much. 

Vonetta Cousins: Ok , when was driving yesterday . My car was runing hot . But , when I pick up speed it cool off . I had the hole change last year . And when I park the car it leak little antifreeze . I have 2004 grand pix . 

Chitab Koret: YOU ARE ALWAYS RIGHT #TrustMymechanic.i believe you and TRUST YOU!! I took my radiator for thorough check and cleaning.i thought my Daihatsu Feroza is dead but believe me NO MORE OVERHEATING,i felt the radiator cap it was cold as if in a refrigerator,not like before,it was so hot you wont attempt to feel it! Hey man,welcome to Kenya i give you a ride to Masai mara national park!

Trevino Trevino: I have a little leak coming down and only over heats when im on the highway and smoking what can it be

Mike Cameramike: I am in Costa Rica - hot here all the time. No water in oil - no oil in water. Have changed and removed thermostat. I do need add antifreeze after 1-1.5 hours highway driving about 10 oz. Replaced cap. Suspect head gasket but no test fails. Replaced upper rad hose was weak. The metal pipe that the upper rad hose is badly rusted. Could my radiator be plugged - is there a good test for this? Fans operate wired them with manual control for a while - is wired back to normal now. Did HC test and it passes. Do not want to take to dealer - is last resort. Here is a video of cooling system pressure test. http://youtu.be/wHKXCcyItrI

Mark Snodgrass: 2000 s10 overheated and quit and hasnt cranked since,checked forir fire and its getn fuel,oil isnt milky,not sure what to do next

Raemicah Rivers: Good video! I have a 2003 Kia Sorento....last night it started smoking at idel. The gauge inside the car didn't go up, there weren't any smells, checked oil level and coolang level. What could it be? 

patricia armentrout: we have a 2005 ford explorer, 4.0 we were traveling and heard a whizzing noise and then a warning light came on that said engine safe mode came on we looked in the book and it said that the engine was overheating. our temp gage was fine we our coolant was full. we had it hooked up to a computer at the garage and they put in a new thermistat and said it was good to go. we made it about 50 miles and it started doing the same thing again. but when we hit the break to pull over the noise would stop but the service engine light stayed on the garage said that the coolant was running to cold. and it was ok to still run it. please help do you think it is the water pump or could it be something else? the codes at the auto zone store said it was the senser on top and a senser that hookes to the gas peddle

Habibur Rahman: get evans waterless coolant

lindytown: Great video, Very informative. Thank you!

Mario s: I own a 2005 Ford Freestar 4.2L I've been having overheating issues for weeks only on the freeway, flactuating temperature. I replaced my thermostat, flushed out entire cooling system, replaced with 50/50 premix. My van still overheats only on the freeway, keeps flactuating from just under 1/2 to over 3/4 on temperature gauge every 5 minutes. In the city stays under 1/2 on gauge and has very good heat without overheating. Also top radiator hose is hot but the bottom hose is only lukewarm. Overflow tank is to proper fill line. Just prior to the stat instal, I dumped all the antifreeze, removed the old stat and ran the van for 3 days. Temp stayed on cold all the time, freeway & city. Do you think my radiator is partialy pluged? Why would it be cold without overheating without stat in place?

Techmisfire: Good video. thanks

dave willis: 05 sebring lx 4 cylider looses water but i cant seem to find where its going no water in the oil and none in the transmission. it dont get hot never has the only reason we knew it was low on coolant was the heat quit working one morning but would work when she stepped down on the gas. now ive been driving this car i havnt had an issue but i havnt been driving 100 miles a day either maybe 25. nothing has ever been done to this car ever regularly maintained is all. if this is a water pump isnt this attached to the timing belt at just over 150000 debating on even keeping this just because of a cost that should be minimal.

Devon Hopkins: I have a 2001 pontiac sunfire i just bought it 3 days ago and has already started overheating I had just changed the thermostat and had noticed oil leaking from the valve cover then had to replaced the seal now no leaks but my antifreeze seems to be disappearing but not dripping out what do you think can be the cause the check engine light isnt even on

Justin Cooper: I'm from Michigan and it is cooler now and it's nice to have the heat on. I was driving down the expressway the other and the car started to overheat while at the same time I lost heat to the cabin. I have had no problems with leaks and do not see any leaks where I park. I do notice, however, that now my antifreeze reservoir is over its "hot" mark, even when cool. If I drive around town, it over heats and I lose heat to the cabin, and then the indicator returns to normal and I regain heat to the cabin. Furthermore, I'm not seeing the electric fans kick on to cool. Any help would be much appreciated! Justin '95 Lumina 3.1

seekingknowledgenow: This is the best instruction site ever!!!

Gurdev Singh: hi, i just filled water in radiator tank 2 days ago, today water was damm boiling from radiator water tank. i just released cap and water start leaking from cap. i couldn;t even touch the cap it was very hot. what could be the reason? i just filled water, do i need to mix coolant as well or it is optional? plz help

Heather Sickmiller: We have a 93 corolla and we drove it on a freeway when it over heated and added radiator fluid with no visible leaks. we attempted to get it somewhere lit(it was night) and it kept overheating as soon as we accelerated. A hose came off and we stopped and towed it from that point. My question is where do we connect the hose back to troubleshoot whats going on with the car?

Jonathan Ramirez: I recently bought a 96 pontiac firebird, the A/C does not work, and it recently overheated on me. It had plenty of antifreeze and the all of it came out. Now when I put water it makes a crying noise and starts leaking water and it appears like it is right underneath the engine. I checked the engine oil to see if the water leaked into the engine, but the oil is perfectly fine and did not mix. I had a friend say its a freeze plug and another say its the radiator/; but I'm not sure Wut it is. Please help!!

renragged: Lots of good info about cooling systems in this video. Best I've seen, and I've been watching several this morning because my wife called me and said her car was overheating this morning... :( Hopefully I can get it sorted out when I get home. Thanks for sharing!

scottgixxer67: LOTS OF GOOD INFO,,,THANKS ;-) !!!

Jairo Razo: Houston :D

Martin Corleone: i dont pickle around, i replace hoses,water pump,thermostat, flush, everthing the cost of this is nothing compared to a new engine and install, my thermostat was stuck open, also the water pump should be mentioned

chris18228: Not all upper and lower hose are cheep mine lower hose is $140 with my dad's discount $200 retail

Muhammad Bello Garba: What a nice video, a lot of thanks! 

Aries Cheng: yah,,,my oil change guy needs a really good complain

MrUrenov: Hi there, my problem is on a 2002 civic ex overheated when I got to traffic bumper to bumper after driving at freeway speed . Temperature went all the way up, checked the coolant in reservoir was full but not hot, radiator was low in coolant but I'm wondering why the coolant from reservoir didn't transfer to the radiator 

DYAC: My friend's business did extremely well with adwords. He basically pay google to put his promotion ads on varies websites and the conversion rate is really high. I guess it helps since he sells gag/prank gifts and his ads get display on funny autocorrect websites. He wouldn't tell me the exact amount, but I'm estimating it is near the mid 6-figure salary. No risk no rewards I guess.
