1. Car/radiator help? What should we do?

$800.00 is a very high price, I do not think the mechanic wants to do the job. Beware when buying the cheapest thing you need to be sure you are getting the right part. Your boy friend may be looking at a radiator that only has two tubes and you may need one with four.

2. Water on driveway under front right side of car.. radiator or heater core problems?

there might be many things 1 if you have topped up the radioator there is a over flow bottle that needs a little amount of coolent in it so it can suck it back when it gets cool 2 A/C to cold and frosting up or blocked drain for the unit

3. my car radiator fan stays on after the ignition switch is off?

10 seconds? Ca not hurt. Assists in the cooling process

5. how much would it cost to replace a car radiator for a 2002 ford explorer?

all good answers but they make 3 different (auto) kinds for that truck

6. Is it ok to drive a car with a radiator leak, just by filling it up with water?

Pepper and cinnamon do NOT work and neither does any stop leak product. Get it fixed properly because when you have a leak, the system can not build the pressure it needs to keep the coolant from boiling off and besides that, it will cause the operating temperature to be wrong and the ECU will see that and set the engine wrong and probably within a year you will have to shell out $300 for a new catalytic converter. Not much savings not fixing the problem. BTW, you should never run a car with just water because that is begging for the engine's metal parts to rust out.

7. Is the potato method of fixing a car radiator described in season 8 of Archer a real thing?

I haven't seen Archer, but it is sometimes possible to plug pinholes in a radiator by adding things like pepper flakes or maybe potato shavings to the coolant. The fix usually only lasts a little while and it probably doesn't do the water pump any good. If you can see and reach the pinhole you're better off draining the radiator, sanding the area around the hole down to shiny bare metal, and soldering the hole closed with plumber's solder and a torch. Is the potato method of fixing a car radiator described in season 8 of Archer a real thing?

8. Car radiator does this sound like a clog or is this normal?

It could be clogged up or you could just be putting more water in than can get out. If you put a hole in a bucket and it will drain 1 gallon a minute and your putting 3 gallons a minute in with the hose, it will overflow. Go to the auto parts store and get some radiator flush and put in it, chances are that if you were not having problems with overheating before and the initial water that came out was not red and yucky looking that you do not have a problem.

9. Car radiator got dented.. help, and price estimates possibly on small damage?

11. Car Radiator Problems for 2004 Lexus IS300 Please Help!! :(?

If the hose slipped off then you had a Cheech and Chong Bong-athon for sure. If you can get the hose back on and refill the coolant and bleed if needed. Check the belt to make sure it did not come off and that the fans work when it gets warm. Refill the radiator directly not just the overflow tank. If it did not get really hot then you might be OK

Car Radiator Hose Full of Pressure PLEASE HELP?
i am quite a radiator expert! The heater on your automobile is fed from the radiator below the bonnet (or hood in case you are American). Does the radiator get warm each and each of how down and for the time of? If no longer, it quite is probable blocked and could choose changing or recoring (you may no longer clean a blocked automobile radiator); the heater matrix could additionally be blocked and could itself be in choose of substitute or recore. The pump could nt artwork, or the heater fan may well be defective. There ought to be air interior the device. a suited mechanic could desire to have the potential to diagnose, or take the radiator and heater matrix to a radiator fix expert who can attempt them for you. wish this facilitates1. car radiator?The coolant tubes are what dispenses the heat of the fluid into the fins witch causes the coolant to cool. The transmission oil Collier is basically the same as it cools the trans oil so it stays thick enough to keep the parts from wearing and gets rid of the heat from friction2. Where can I buy a car radiator?ebay auto zone advance auto or junkyard3. my car radiator fan stays on after the ignition switch is off?10 seconds? Ca not hurt. Assists in the cooling process4. How long should the antifreeze in a car radiator last?you have a leak for sure it does not evaporate that fast, it would take months.. get a flashlight and run motor warm and check it out all over. if it is a new car or whatever read your manual for what to use it may be dexcool, 50/50, or reg antifreeze. it will tell you usually on the shock panel in the engine compartment or on the cap. and in the manual as well. dexcool is good for 100k-150k miles if use the right make product. stay cool!5. Car radiator Fan works even its cool?Check the radiator fan switch and fan relay6. Can I add a water sprinkler infront of the car radiator to cool down the coolant temperature when I'm making a long climb up the hill?Well, you could.But then you'd have to carry along a reservoir of water somewhere in your car along with the plumbing and electrically driven water pump to make it work.And that all adds weight ...8.34 pounds to be exact ...for each gallon of water you carry. So 10 gallons of water would add about 83lbs of dead weight plus the added plumbing, wiring and water pump ...so you're easily looking at well over 100lbs to carry around with you. All the time. Whether your going up hills or not. The better way?Get your cooling system in order.Like when was the last time you had the cooling system in your car flushed and refilled with new coolant ...if you even know what I'm talking about? If you've neglected the cooling system then the radiator is probably clogged with all manner of crud and mung ...in which case it's time for a new radiator ...as well as an effctive flush of the entire cooling system of the engine. If your car has electric radiator fans then make sure they both work. Typically one fan runs based on coolant temperature and the other comes on when the AC is turned on and, possibly, when the coolant exceeds a certain temperature. If your cooling system is up to snuff then your engine should not be overheating when you run up long grades. And, it will only get worse.Bring the car in and have the cooling system evaluated; by your own question you know it's not working right ...so don't be an osterich and simply stick your head in the ground 'cause that won't make it go away or fix the ever worsening problem.

A Guide to Car Radiator Repair
Radiator repair is an essential part of both maintaining your car and extending its working life. When your radiator is working, it keeps the temperature of your engine under control. When it's not, your engine risks overheating, creating the potential for permanent damage that can total your car.Here's a look at how to find and fix problems with your radiator so you can keep your car for years to come.Before we get into the problems and solutions portion of this write-up, let's define what a car radiator is.Think of it as a heat exchanger made up of two water tanks. The radiator removes the heat from the coolant that runs through your engine and moves that heat to the outside of your car.The engine pumps hot coolant into your engine. That hot coolant flows into one of the tanks in the radiator before being pumped into the core of the key cooling part of your engine.The narrow tubes that comprise most of your radiator bring cold air into your car as your vehicle travels forward. This cold air pulls the heat from the coolant. The newly cooled fluid is then pumped back into your engine from the other end of the radiator.This coolant can now do its purpose of keeping the temperature of your car under control. Many newer radiators also include a fan controlled by a thermostat that pushes hot air through the radiator when the car is stationary.What are Problems with Car Radiators?The very function of the radiator opens it up to many problems.The most common problem with radiators is leaking.The hoses that connect your radiator to your car will fail at some point. Also, the clamps that connect these pipes will loosen as well. If you see a green fluid dripping from or on your engine that smells sweet, you've got a leak.The frequent amount of liquid that flows through the radiator's pipe makes it prone to rusting (another cause of leaking). So, be sure to check the exterior of the pipes for signs of rust. Also, you need to look for a brownish color in your coolant.One of the more frustrating problems to deal with is mineral deposits, or gunk, building up inside your radiator. Rusty pipes and leaks are easy to detect. But gunk is much harder to find and can cause the same issues the previously mentioned issues can create.Leaky fluid, rusty pipes, and gunk can all lead to overheating. And I do not think we have to go into too much detail why overheating is a problem for your car.Other parts not directly connected to the radiator can cause problems for it as well. A broken water pump or faulty thermostat can lead to too much fluid flowing into the radiator. And too much fluid will crack the essential part of your cooling system.Cracked radiators show the same signs as the previously mentioned issues: leaking fluid, higher engine temperatures, and the low coolant light coming on.The best repair for a leaky or cracked radiator is to replace it. But there are other solutions for how to repair a radiator that are useful if you are not able to afford a brand-new radiator right now.First, you need to make sure the leak is actually coming from the radiator. If you can not see the leak, use a pressure tester. Pump the tester to 15 PSI and the leak will reveal itself.Once you can confirm that the origin is the radiator and have found the leak, use one of several potential temporary solutions. These include industrial solutions such as using cooling system sealer as well as more unconventional remedies such as using an egg, epoxy glue, or black pepper.The epoxy glue is also good for sealing cracks in your radiator.What about gunk and mineral deposits?Clean out the pipes of your radiator to take care of these hard to detect issues. Many times, flushing the coolant in your car is all you need to do to take care of the problem.Now, you need to follow these steps:• First, give your car a couple of hours (at least) to cool down. Coolant is hot right after use, and it is a danger to handle right after you drive.• Second, get a container and jack your car up.• Then, locate the petcock and open it so the fluid can drain into your bucket.• Once you've emptied the petcock, flush the radiator with a hose (close the petcock before you do this). You should also fill the coolant reservoir with water before doing this. Start your car so the remaining coolant will run through your engine.• The last step is putting a new 50/50 mix of coolant and water into your system.How Much Will a Radiator Repair Cost?Now, many of us would not be comfortable with performing the previously mentioned auto radiator repairs on our cars. And those steps may not be enough to get the problems with your radiator taken care of.So many car radiator repairs are best left to professionals.Now, professionals will most likely replace the part entirely. And replacement cost an average of about $600 (though that can vary anywhere between $300 to $1500 depending on the car).Repair procedures will obviously cost a lot less. Flushing coolant cost about $50 if you do it yourself, while a mechanic will charge about $90.Can I Drive My Car with a Cracked Radiator?Well, that was easy.I mean, sure, you might be able to drive around with your radiator cracked for a while. But when you do, you take on great risk of your car overheating, possibly catching fire.Radiator repair is a necessary part of keeping your car running. Do not hesitate when you sense a problem with your car radiator. Get the issue taken care of as soon as possible.Car Radiators. how much more effective is an aluminum radiator than a regular one?Should not affect heating at all , aluminum cools faster so it wo not over heat as much
What Does a Fan Clutch Do on a Car Radiator Fan?
The fins on the silicone filled hub of the fan clutch sense temperature. When the ambient temperature of the air passing across the hub is cool it allows the fan blades to turn slowly, reducing under-hood noise and waisting engine power. When the air passing through the radiator heats-up the center hub nearly spins the fan blades as fast as the water-pump impeller pulling air through the radiator shroud.1. What should I do when I use normal water instead of coolant in a car radiator?I'm very surprised, 7 answers and only one of them mentioned what I believe to be most applicable in the OP's situation.Like Daniel Bumiller . said, since you said coolant instead of antifreeze, you are probably in a warmer region. But he failed to mention what Richard Widman mentioned which is that coolant also raises the boiling point of water. So here's a complete answer:Freezing point - If you live in a freezing climate, water will freeze in your engine block, coolant reservoir, coolant passages and radiator.nna. More than likely this will cause your expansion plugs (also known as freeze plugs) to pop out, which can be an expensive repair. The vehicle cannot be driven to the mechanic, it would have to be towed. nnb. Also, your water pump will be seized because of the ice, and therefore whatever is driving your water pump (whether it is your timing belt, external fan belt, serpentine belt, or drive gear) will slip or break.nnc. there might be other damage associated with this scenario, but I live in a tropical country. I have never had the experience or felt the need to study these effects. Boiling Point - Regardless of what climate you live in, a vehicle's operating temperature is usually higher than the boiling point of water. If the fluid in your cooling system starts boiling while you are operating the vehicle, several things can happen.nna. air is introduced into the system. This can cause unreliable performance of the temperature gauge, inefficient cooling by the radiator, water pump damage, and possible overheating of the engine. nnb. boiling will also cause the water to evaporate, and your engine will overheat once sufficient water has been lost.Rust inhibition - the coolant is only part of the rust prevention in an engine, but important nonetheless. Improper grounding of the engine will cause electrolysis to occur, which will eat at your radiator core like acid thru steel. Good quality coolant also has the ability to absorb a certain amount of electrolysis. Along with the presence of rust inhibitors, it is imperative to use it for rust prevention.So there you have it, a combination of points gathered from different answers, broken down with explanations for each one. I hope you learned something new from this.Cheers!What should I do when I use normal water instead of coolant in a car radiator?2. Did you know the next time the mechanic says you have a leak in your car radiator, just ask him to show you where? According to Consumers Report it's a big scam.Passive aggressive much?Did you know it is up to the customer to verify the problem and the repair in order to not be ripped off?Any reputable shop will want to show you the problem and explain things to you. In my shop we take pictures and text them to your phone even if you see the damage first hand.Something like a coolant leak will be visible (unless its leaking inside the motor which will have other obvious symptoms) with residue or bubbling from a pressure test. Ball joints, tie rods, exhaust repairs and tire problems are also mostly obvious if you know how the part is supposed to move and not supposed to move.At the end of the day I will trust my own skepticism and due diligence before waiting on consumer reports to tell me how I am being ripped off.Did you know the next time the mechanic says you have a leak in your car radiator, just ask him to show you where? According to Consumers Report it's a big scam.3. How do i drain the water from my car radiator? engine keeps goin up2 the max and the water is orange!?there is a small valve on the one of the bottom corners of the radiator. spin to open and it will start letting the water out. if the water was orange then there may not have been any anti-freeze mixed with the water. also may be a good idea to check the thermostat out and back flush the radiator and motor. if there was no anti freeze in the cooling system then there may be a build up of rust in the radiator also
Do I Need to Use Anti-freeze in My Car Radiator? (in Warm Weather)?
No! if you were to google water vs antifreeze, winter or summer, you will find no support for running water for anything other than pressure tests. absolutely do not use straight water for an extended period of time. it will cause more problems. antifreeze helps keep corrosion away and does aid in cooling in warm weather. better than straight water. might have a leaky hose, weak head gasket, bad thermostat, even a bad radiator cap. i would not ignore this to long.1. What is the least expensive way to flush a car radiator?You can't it must be done professionally with the proper machine. There's no way in hell you can remove all the trapped air in the system and it will cause all kinds of problems. The old days of flush and fill are long gone , it must be done with the proper equipment. What is the least expensive way to flush a car radiator?2. frozen solid car radiator, what can i do?If your radiator froze solid you will have a leaky one when it thaws out... also you will have problem with your engine and the freeze plugs... Do not force the thawing out by attempting to run the engine... get a long extension cord and a hair dryer and place it under the hood and let it start to warm the engine compartment it will take an hour or two but works..3.

How Much would it cost to fix a busted in (but not broken) car radiator?There is "no fix" to a simple dented radiator core that does not leak. Cross your fingers and hope the cross core cooling tubes have not been nicked enough to cause a leak. If I were you have a reliable person closely inspect the radiator core for you.5. car radiator?The terms are almost self explanatory - the coolant tubes are passages that the coolant actually flow through and the air fins, which are attached directly to the coolant tubes, are to increase the area that is exposed to the air to help draw the heat away from the coolant6. My car radiator is leaking??it could be your radiator leaking it also could be a hose that's leaking or it could even be the heater core leaking. you have to figure out where the water is leaking out of before anyone can help you out. also your coolant system needs to be 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze.7. car radiator losing waters when being driven at high speed on the motor way?Depends it could be alot of things... double check the hoses, the reserve too, you may have a leak or it could be the thermastat or your fan is not working and its causing the car to guzzle down the water. Do not let your car overheat too often because you ruin the engine that way. Good luck!8. How do you use antifreeze stop leak in a car with no radiator cap?loosen your petcock & drain out about a gallon of anti-freeze, empty your reservoir pour the stop leak into the reservoir. crank the car & allow it to warm up keeping an eye on the temprature this will allow the stop leak to be pulled into the engine, then add the same amounty drained back to your engine throught the reservoir. you can save a lot of time by pulling the top hose & pouring it right in throught the hose. Good luck9. How are some ways to fix a small leak in a car radiator?You can buy something called stopleak sold at auto part stores10. my car radiator fan stays on after the ignition switch is off?Normal. That's why there is usually a notice to keep your hands away from the fan which "MAY START AT ANY TIME"11. Car radiator Fan works even its cool?change the sensor. the fan sensor is shot12. My car radiator burst on speed after 45mins journey with AC on. The car is a Honda Civic. What do you think was wrong?What do you mean by radiator burst? OK with the plastic radiators I have seen them burst due to the plastic becoming fatigued and brittle due to the constant temperature change they are exposed to. I would first check to see if your electric fan or fans are coming on at the proper temperature or if both fans are working. If you use dual fans one is the primary fan while the other should only come on when you use the air conditioning. Also make sure the thermostat is not stuck closed causing over heating. Good luck and hope this helps
Can Towing a Car From Front Wheels with the Fork-liked Device Damages the Car Radiator?
I think you mean a recovery "A" frame. If it is properly fitted to the lower suspension arms in accordance with the fitting instructions, no the radiator will not be damaged.If it is a home made device with bad clearances, or even a good device fitted wrongly, yes it might damage the radiator, and also possibly bodywork too1. how can u temporarily fix a hole on the side of car radiator?crack an egg into the radiator fill tube, and it will plug up the hole, and you can coat it in something like JB Weld to stop the leak long enough to get to an auto parts store to get a new one.

You must have just had a notion to spend some money and the Pennziol guy could tell so he made up something. The cooling system pressure in a warmed-up engine made the hose feel tight like it should. Unless the guy took off the radiator cap, he would not see how much coolant was in the radiator and you should not open that cap on a hot engine unless you want to get scalded- or the car is overheated and needs coolant added. Never go back to that shop. you almost got taken for $100. Tell all your freinds what crooks they are there9.

Car radiator got dented.. help, and price estimates possibly on small damage?if its leaking that much, your better off to get a new radiator6. IF my car radiator needs water can I put it in?Not a problem, just add coolant to the coolant expansion tank7. Is it common practice to flush a car radiator when the thermostat is faulty and is being replaced?Not usually. At least, not that I'm aware of.Flushing a radiator is usually done when it gets dirty. This can be from rust (using non-distilled water or no coolant and straight water), or some other issue that pollutes it. These things can plug it up and reduce flow, which can overheat the engine. Flushing it clears it out. A failing thermostat is usually not caused by that, so they're not related. Replacing a thermostat (depending on the vehicle) is generally done by draining a small amount of coolant to get the level below the thermostat, swapping it out, and then filling it back up.One of the big reasons for a thermostat to fail is due to the coolant being too low. The coolant that is still on the thermostat then dries out and gets sticky. However, if corrosion (rust, etc) is causing it to stick, then it'd be a good idea to flush it, since there's probably corrosion elsewhere.But if the thermostat is just faulty, just replace it and be on your way.

The car at some point is going to heat up to the maximum all of a sudden and start smoking like crazy! This can cause further damage to your vehicle that may not be able to be fixed. ALso very embarrassing. Call around to a couple salvage yards and get a radiator. Better to fix the issue now then to wait and not have any car at all13. Do you need antifreeze in a car radiator in the summer?Yes to prevent rust or corrosion of iron and aluminum parts and it may help keep the water pump lubricated as well as it raises the boiling point of the coolant
How to Fix a Leaking Car Radiator?
go to a auto supply store or even your local parts ,and ask them for a sealant for your radiator leak.it s a temp fixed but it ll keep you going.try it follow the directions on the bottle or container,if it works out look into other radiator replacement for the future. if it a small leak your in luck but if it s along a weld you need to replace it then.i try it on my truck, but not diesel,but i had a small stream of water leak on the weld so it did not work not a on a pin hole but along the weld.but any ways it does work on small leaks.not trying to scare you on it but notice what kind of leak you have. by the way check your hoses that are attach to the rad and see if there s a leak from it,could be the prob.hoses swell and crack around the clamps so check it out. good luck1. whats the name of the pipe that connects the radiator fluid to the radiator and also goes to the engine block?Coolant outlet. How does yours have a rust hole, that seems rather difficult to have happen2. Lower radiator hose heater. Is it worth it?How cold is it where you are? A lower radiator hose would not do much for you as it does not hold very much water and water tends to not change temperature easily3. Is it possible to clog a radiator hose?Difficult to entirely clog one, but very possible, Especially if the engine is cast iron. Under certain conditions cast iron can start to scale and rust. An engine that is overheating frequently will have air pockets (actually steam) that can cause rust to eat away the metal leaving thick deposits of sediment that will settle at low spots in the cooling system like the lower radiator hose. This process will be accelerated if water is constantly added to the radiator instead of coolant.Is it possible to clog a radiator hose?4. where is the radiator cap?the radiator cap is on the overflow bottle now on most newer cars, you have to add fluid into the overflow bottle until the line where it says full hot or full cold depending if the engine is hot or cold5. radiator punctured..what are my options?I have no clue how come air is coming out of the radiator, are you sure this is not part of the air conditioning system? because there should only be antifreeze coming out of a radiator, please get more information and let us know ok?6. Coolant reservoir empty radiator full?If the store checked the radiator, they would have depressurized it when they took the cap off, so that did not make sense. The rear main seal has nothing to do with it. Just add coolant to the tank and keep an eye on it. If the shop drained the coolant for some reason and refilled it, it always takes a while for all the air to burp out of the system7. Quick Fix for a Radiator Hose Burst?they make a splice repair for hoses but you may as well get the right hose and repair it right. i will take the same amount of time and effort8. car guys, radiator question?Prolly a good idea to read the directions on the bottle at this point...but to answer your question it should go directly into the radiator (after it cools, otherwise you will be scalded with pressurized antifreeze)9. Car smoking white smoke and leaking orange liquid from driver side.?The low coolant compressor off message indicates that a sensor has shut off the A/C due to low engine coolant. This happens in order to avoid overheating the motor. The white smoke indicates burning water (or water/coolant mixture) which probably is from a leak of coolant, which is the orange fluid you are seeing. That also makes sense in light of the fact a sensor is finding low coolant. If the white smoke is coming from under the hood, then the leak you see is the main problem, so have somebody check your radiator, water pump and/or hoses, heater hoses and heater core for the leak. If the white smoke is coming from the tailpipe, you have a head gasket problem and DO NOT drive the car. I would suggest you avoid any mechanic that jumped directly to saying you need a Water Pump and/or A/C compressor. More than likely the A/C will work fine once you fix whatever is causing the leak, and the Water Pump is not definitely the cause of the leak. Added: This seems the only way I can answer your additional question. Since the smoke is coming from underneath the hood, there's a 95% chance that you do not have a head gasket problem, but instead have a busted hose somewhere. Driving the car is risky, but not impossible. You have to make sure it is cool and full of water before you drive anywhere, and cannot plan on going far. You can also test for finding the leak yourself pretty easily. If you want, try this: While the car is cool (NOT WHILE IT IS HOT), open the radiator cap and pour water to the top of the filler tube, filling the radiator. Crank the engine and let it run for a while to warm it up and circulate the water. Watch for the water to start leaking out. If you see it leaking before you see the water in the radiator drop, then the leak is on the front side (the radiator hoses, water pump hoses or radiator itself). If you see the water level in the radiator drop substantially before you see a leak - that's the thermostat opening and filling the block with water to start the cooling process. That normally happens once the engine reaches a certain temperature. Fill the radiator to the top again and continue watching for the leak, this time watching the hoses that are attached to the water pump and go back to the firewall. More than likely you will have found the leak by the time the thermostat opens. I suggest insuring that the radiator is full before you try to drive it, with the thermostat open. Fill it up all the way before you try to drive it, and watch your temperature gauge while driving. Plan to go no further than to a mechanic to replace the leaky hose.
Can I Make a Homemade a/C with an Old Car Radiator?
Would work, but buying all that ice would get expensive1. My car radiator burst on speed after 45mins journey with AC on. The car is a Honda Civic. What do you think was wrong?Could be many things. Radiators with plastic tanks tend to crack and burst with time. Around 10-16 years old seems to be an average lifetime for them. If it's not that old it could have been a stuck thermostat. Ask your mechanic to give you a diagnosis2. Due to the concern of climate change and extreme heat, at what temperatures would an average car radiator be ineffective at cooling the engine?If that becomes a concern, the outside temperature is too hot for humans to survive longterm.Due to the concern of climate change and extreme heat, at what temperatures would an average car radiator be ineffective at cooling the engine?3. Would eggs damage a car radiator if you put 2 raw ones in as a temporary fix for a leak?Damage? not really...plug small passages in the cooling system, yes. Stop up a leaking radiator to get you back to civilization? maybe but not in most cases. I have used black pepper in an emergency but it is really a last resort as opposed to walking kind of last ditch effort.4. How Much would it cost to fix a busted in (but not broken) car radiator?There is "no fix" to a simple dented radiator core that does not leak. Cross your fingers and hope the cross core cooling tubes have not been nicked enough to cause a leak. If I were you have a reliable person closely inspect the radiator core for you.5. How do you plug a pin hole in a car radiator?your local autoparts store will have a solution u can put on to stop the leak, it looks like a tube it welds. also try putting some black pepper and run the vehicle. this is a short/temp solution for leak6. pls can i get detail of how car radiator works?It all has to do with the surface area supplied by the radiator's tubes and the heat sinks (these are the fins). Hot water runs through the elongated tubes; depending upon the brand of radiator the tubes will run either vertical or horizontal. The heat sinks through convection radiate the heat away from the hot water while the air flow dissipates the heat from the heat sinks. The fan is used when the car is moving at a speed of less than about 35mph. This is why electric fans are more efficient that mechanical fans; the electric ones will shut off and freely spin at around this speed. The water pump, which is driven by the fan (serpentine, V) belt pushes the water through the radiators tubes; the faster the engine turns the faster the pump spins the more volume per minute is moved. The water surrounds the piston cylinders and removes heat from these cylinders through the same process of convection. I do not know of any engineering sites.7. Is it common practice to flush a car radiator when the thermostat is faulty and is being replaced?Not usually. At least, not that I'm aware of.Flushing a radiator is usually done when it gets dirty. This can be from rust (using non-distilled water or no coolant and straight water), or some other issue that pollutes it. These things can plug it up and reduce flow, which can overheat the engine. Flushing it clears it out. A failing thermostat is usually not caused by that, so they're not related. Replacing a thermostat (depending on the vehicle) is generally done by draining a small amount of coolant to get the level below the thermostat, swapping it out, and then filling it back up.One of the big reasons for a thermostat to fail is due to the coolant being too low. The coolant that is still on the thermostat then dries out and gets sticky. However, if corrosion (rust, etc) is causing it to stick, then it'd be a good idea to flush it, since there's probably corrosion elsewhere.But if the thermostat is just faulty, just replace it and be on your way. Is it common practice to flush a car radiator when the thermostat is faulty and is being replaced?
Car/radiator Help? What Should We Do?
The mechanic is using dealer prices with a large markup. He's probably quoting $400 for a radiator and 5 hours labor. The $120 radiator will work fine. The problem is that it's not easy to replace in an Aztec.1. Is it ok to drive a car with a radiator leak, just by filling it up with water?Yes it definitely will. It will expand the hole and your gonna be in bigger trouble. The car at some point is going to heat up to the maximum all of a sudden and start smoking like crazy! This can cause further damage to your vehicle that may not be able to be fixed. ALso very embarrassing. Call around to a couple salvage yards and get a radiator. Better to fix the issue now then to wait and not have any car at all2. How do you use antifreeze stop leak in a car with no radiator cap?There is no cure for a head gasket but to replace it. If you put that stuff in there it will result in more expense. That stuff is made for small leaks in radiators and as a temporary fix.3. Car Radiator water steamed out from under the hood while the rest in on the floor.?Heater core bad, temperature not going up is a good thing. but it would have gone up if you did not fill it with water4. Is it all right to clean a car radiator with vinegar and chlorine?A big fat NO. I am a corrosion engineer, trust me you do not have to play with the PH of solution and alter (generally increase) the corrosion rate of your radiator. Corrosion rates can raise up to like your radiator vanishing in 6-8 months.PH highly influences corrosion of copper that's why the coolant has a inhibitor (chemical specie) that controls the PH according to conditions of pressure, temperature, and PH of fluid. It keeps it in the favor of radiator material, ie: copper, etc5. Water on driveway under front right side of car.. radiator or heater core problems?I have had little leaks like that, I used stop leak It works good but its temporary,its never harmed my engine,But if its your water pump it wont help, you half to get that fixed6. what does a fan clutch do on a car radiator fan?It enables fan to turn off (detach) when not needed or when it would negatively influence on holding coolant temperature about stable at operating level. Very cold ambient temperature, starting up cold engine7. car radiator and overflow tank are foaming. What could cause this and how to repair?I had the same problem and fixed three different things that people said were wrong with it and it still overheats and overflows I depending on the cost of the car I would get rid of it8. Can we use water in a car radiator instead of coolant?Yes, you may, but it is ill-advised to do so.Coolant is a mixture of antifreeze and water.Water boils at 212F and freezes at 32F. The combination of antifreeze and water raises the boiling point and lowers the freezing point.It also provides lubrication (mainly for the water pump) and protection from corrosion, along with the added benefit of increased heat transfer of the coolant.The standard mixture, also considered the lower limit, is usually 50% water and 50% antifreeze. The upper limit is considered to be a 25% water 75% antifreeze mix.Anything weaker than the lower limit or stronger than the upper limit and the effects of the coolant are diminished.I don't remember what straight antifreeze boils at, but it will freeze at around 8F. Some race cars and all demolition derby cars run just plain water, because they are subject to leaking the poisonsous, slippery coolant everywhere during a wreck. This type of vehicle is not depended upon during winter, or spending any time idling in traffic on a hot summer day.So for a vehicle in use on the road it is best to run a coolant mixture between 50% - 75% antifreeze depending on the environment the vehicle is used in. Can we use water in a car radiator instead of coolant?
Is It Normal for a Car Radiator to Steam a Little During Cold Weather?
No smell like antifreeze? Then all is A-OK1. Does car radiator sealant actually work?The cap can be a source of overheating, the cap regulates the expansion of the coolant by way of a pring loaded plunger that seals the radiator opening, when the temperature pressure exceeds the spring rate, the plunger backs off and allows some coolant into the expansion tank. If the cap is faulty, air can lean into the system, creating hot spots in your engine. This also keeps the cooling system from siphoning coolant back into the radiator to keep things air pocket free. Over time this will add up to missing coolant, you could also make your water pump fail prematurely, or even blow a Cylinder head gasket. $16 compared to $1200? You decide2. how can u temporarily fix a hole on the side of car radiator?there is a product called radiator patch. its an epoxy putty you just follow the directions3. How does a car radiator work?it is locate directly behind the grill in the front of the car. what a radiator does is dispels the heat from the coolant so the engine does not get to hot. as you are driving the coolant is going through the fins of the radiator and the fan pulls cooler air through the fins to cool down the anti freeze in the radiator.4. What does it mean if a car radiator has black oil in it?A car radiator should not have oil in it. Oil and coolant don't play well together, they make a nasty substance that kind of looks like a chocolate milkshake. It could mean that you have a gasket leak in your engine. It could mean that you have a leaky oil cooling line. It could mean someone, for whatever reason, dumped oil in the radiator. I just know I've never heard of a car that uses oil in the radiator, so I would be concerned.What does it mean if a car radiator has black oil in it?.5. How do I seal a leaking car radiator?If your radiator is all metal, a radiator shop might be able to solder it. If the radiator is plastic or the leak is at a metal-plastic joint it cannot be permanently fixed. You can try one of the may stop-leak products sold at auto parts stores, they can seal small leaks anywhere in the cooling system of the car. In my opinion it's worth a shot for a few bucks before shelling out big bucks for a new radiator.6. Is there any way to patch or repair a busted/leaking car radiator?Out of 50 years of bitter experience, I can truthfully answer that ANY radiator repair is useless.Back in the day of copper/brass radiators the "mad hatter" down at the radiator shop (never met a non-crazy radiator repair person...solder is full of lead) could "recore" your leaking radiator. He had standard width core material that could be cut and soldered to you tanks ( the vessels that have the cap and drain ). The only reason one might do this is if you wanted more cooling capacity and the factory had not designed this in as an option. Early BMWs (like my 1970 2002) had radiators that were designed fo 80 Fahrenheit max temperatures ( most of Germany). Mine would overheat if the temperature reached 85. I had it recore would from 3/4 inch single row to 1 inch dual row. Never overheated again!Today, modern cross flow aluminum radiators with plastic tanks do a great job of handling any temperature thrown at them. Two problems for the crazy radiator repair guys. The plastic tanks become brittle and break. Once they've broken, nothing can be done. The aluminum core has superior cooling ability when compared to copper/brass. However, the downside to aluminum is its very low melting point. One cannot heat the core to the temperature that solder melts. Aluminum melts before solder. No repairs!Finally, do not even think about that "miracle" stop leak. Yes, it will stop leaks. It will also clog up the core itself. Pressures and temperature will rise enough to make the core expload. Unless you like the attention you get from the explosion and steam, I would not recommend!So, just spend the $250-500 for the new radiator. If the car is not worth it, scrap it for parts or trade it.
