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.

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.

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

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
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

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

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
Mark Snodgrass: 2000 s10 overheated and quit and hasnt cranked since,checked forir fire and

Raemicah Rivers: Good video! I have a 2003 Kia Sorento....last night it started smoking at

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
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
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!

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!

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

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.
