I'm confused as to why you would want to do this? I can not fathom a logical reason for needing a heater in any radiator hose. If your have a freezing issue, have someone check your antifreeze. incorrect water to antifreeze ratio such as having too much water, or worse, only water in the cooling system will result in a frozen hose, especially the lower one, as it tends to be more exposed to the elements from under the vehicle.

turn your heater on to max heat and high fan. then see if you can feel the hoses on the firewall for heat they should be hot. make sure that the fan unit on the radiatoris working if the upper radiator hose is hot the fans should be running if they are not that means that either the relay is bad the thermo sensor is bad or the fan unit is shot... please rate the solution..........thanks

first, try sqeezing the hoses several times too get any air out of them. second, you may have put the thermostat in backwards, so it is not going to open and let the coolant flow thru.you could ruin your engine instead of your radiator. good luck

you should have hot water on all rad. hoses when the motor is running at a norm. temp. the water is not going through the heater core like it should. you have cutoff valve bad low water are a stopped heater.try a hoter thermostat if none of the above are true.

SOURCE: no heat on 2008 sienna, replace t-stat. one rad

hello, check and see if it has a valve in the heater core hoses, also take heater core hoses off from motor, their should be two, put water hose on the end of hose run water through one hose, then swap to other hose, run water throuhg it also, you are flushing heater core out see if any trash comes out either hose, check water pump, and thermostat, make sure it is opening, you can buy a bad thermostat, i have before

SOURCE: car overheated, no heat inside

Is there any pressure on the top radiator hose when the car has been running for awhile? If not the first thing I would do is replace the radiator cap. Make sure the radiator is full. Let the car run again to make sure you have pressure on the top hose. If you have pressure let the car run until you have equal amount of heat on both hoses. Make sure the fan works. If no pressure than you need to replace the thermostat.

No heat how do I flush heater core out 99 mercury sable LS DOHC ?


Find where pipes are going into heater rad(usually near the bulk head) disconnect both, I usually use a spark plug to insert into hose so as not to loose water from engine block, use hose from house tap insert into heater rad and flush until clean.

I have a 1991 corsica and was wanting to change the coolant can you tell me where the drain plug is.


Many cars don't have a drain plug, and even if there was one, I wouldn't touch it, because they often break or strip out. Simply remove the lower rad hose from the radiator, and let the coolant drain out. Then, leaving the hose disconnected, remove the heater hose leading to the engine at the engine intake manifold end. Shove a garden hose into the end of the heater hose, and flush thoroughly with water until the stuff running out of the lower rad hose runs clear. Then, reconnect both hoses, and slowly pour in a gallon of pure coolant (not 50/50), as it will mix with the water left in the engine block. When the rad is full or nearly full, start vehicle and, leaving rad cap off, allow it to reach operating temp (upper rad hose will get hot, and coolant level in rad will drop). With engine idling, (important!) VERY SLOWLY pour the rest of the coolant in, and any additional coolant mixed 50/50 with water, until the rad is full. Cap it, and then fill the overflow bottle to the FULL HOT mark, or close to the top if no mark is found. You're done!

08 Sentra. Car won't get past 3 bars heater output is lukewarm. Even after 1hr plus running the upper rad hose is hot lower rad hose very cold. Any suggestions? P.S. It is -47 with wind chill and heater is...


it is likely air flow if air is cold enought it can super cool a rad if you cover part of the rad partialy and the heat starts to come then slowely cover it more and more untill it hits the proper heat range

2000 Olds Silhouette (3.4L) coolant change/flush.


Power flushing is usually not a good thing as the heater cores can become blocked.I would suggest to remove the lower rad hose and drain as much coolant as possible.Refill with clear water with lower hose reattached.Bleed system of air as you fill with water and keep filling until operating temp is reached.Drive and return and drain it again the same way,now refill with at least 1 and 1/2 gallons of dexcool and don't forget to add the vegetable based aluminum protector required in your vehicle available from gm and make sure you bleed the air from the system from the valve just to the rear of the rad filler neck on the engine at the end of the coolant pipe running across the front of the engine.

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive


Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.

Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Flush good.

Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.

Stop leak can plug everything.

Also.......not likely causing over heating....but ....at your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.

Install new motor in 91 jeep 4.0L all new parts (water pump ,rad, hoses, plugs... ran fine going down hill started to over heat.. when to a shop and they check thermostat. seem ok replace and drove home...


You probably have an air lock. Remove a heater hose and get all the air out. Then run it with the rad cap off until it warms up. You should see the water level drop when it finally goes, or if you got the air out with the heater hose, it should be okay.

98 runner cooling issues


You probably have airlock in the cooling system.

Not sure about the 4 runner's cooling system, but if there is airlock I usually take the coolant back out, take the thermostat back out, fill the engine block from this hole with 50/50 coolant, reinstall the thermostat, upper hose, fill the radiator and tank, then run the vehicle with the heater on max (rad cap off) and then fill the rad as the rest of the air comes out.
