1999 Land Rover Discovery Question: Running Hot
If the system is full of antifreeze, drive the vehicle for about 10-15 minutes on the highway. Then reinspect. CAREFULLY feel the upper and lower radiator hoses, they should feel abouth the same temperature. If not suspect a flow problem (water pump, stuck thermostat, headgasket causing air pockets). Also feel the radiator fins, it should be aroundf the same temperature all around. If it only runs hotter at highway speeds, suspect a clogged radiator. - baccurate
I replced the water pump,thermostat,antifreeze,no mixing of anything in the oil, plenty of oil what could it be?
stays cool when idle but when I drive about 2 miles it runs hot and I hear some knocking and see smoke on the driver side of the engine.
A Coolant leak under the middle of the vehicle can be caused by a leaking throttle body deicer. Coolant travels down the engine towards the rear before dripping to the ground.
dryer on my truck is running hot. new dryer, new compresor new avaporator hot air
Car does not want to start when it is cold - under 50 degrees. Car also does not want to start when engine is warm/hot - stop for short period, try to start again. When does start, cough, cough, need to floor gas pedal and eventually will run smoothly.
Engine may continue to cough and run raged when engine is restarted and driving.
