Overheating..

Post by EmmettJDM » Thu Apr 07, 2016 4:35 pm

Car only over heats when i go up hills! seems stupid i know...

the top radiator hose is boiling hot and the bottom luke warm?

Think my thermostat is not opening or my radiator is blocked? any ideas

Yeah do the basics. Thermostat. Radiator cap. Coolant. Temperature sensor.

Silver one did that when I first got it and it ended up being blocked rad though.

Nah that was 5 years ago, the year of the stepper. Was right after the year of the borked torque converter.

You mean a half head of hair ago?? But now I think about if i'm balder than you I assume you had implants done :lol:

@ OP look at Radiator, Coolant temp sensor, even faulty temp gauge on dash, radiator cap and thermostat.
Doubt water pump if its flowing wont be that.

Another to watch for is heavily clogged condenser and front bar as airflow may be restricted
