If the engine is not overheating and the temp gauge reads normal, the thermostat is doing its job. If the engine is overheating, the thermostat may be stuck and in need of replacement.
it sounds like your water pump may not be working, to find out if it is, start your car, remove the radiator cap and look into the radiator. you should be able to see the fluid moving in the radiator. it sounds like your water pump may not be working, to find out if it is, start your car, remove the radiator cap and look into the radiator. you should be able to see the fluid moving in the radiator.if it is not m0oving your pump is bad
It means you have a "BIG" leak. I would check the bottom of the radiator or the lower radiator hose.
The purpose of a radiator hose is to connect a radiator to the moving engine of a car. You can learn about radiators at the Wikipedia. Once on the page, type "Radiator" into the search field at the top of the page and press enter to bring up the information.
If coolant is leaking from a car it means that your radiator has a hole in it. If this is not fixed the car will over heat.
Broken radiator fan/fanbelt.
question- what was the car without a radiator? well it's probly a car without a stinking radiator,,,
Make sure the radiator fan is turning on when the engine warms up. When it's moving, air is blown across the radiator, but when it's NOT moving, there isn't any air moving to cool the radiator so you need a fan to be working. It SHOULD work from a temperature sensor.
yes, a car radiator can be fixed in a repair shop
When a car is hot, keep the car running and add water to the radiator. When a car is cold, you can simply put the water into the radiator.
It can mean that the temperature is too hot or you have a bad radiator cap.
When your car is at idle there is no air flow to cool the radiator, but when your car moves the air flow through the radiator cools it down. I would suspect the radiator fan is not coming on when it should. If the fan is working properly the engine temperature should stay fairly constant assuming the thermostat is also working properly.
