Temperature problem.

Hey Guys.

Recently my fox started over heating. So long story short I changed the water pump. Thermostat. And the temperature sensor. The car starts to heat up when the heater is off. But when it's on it maintains its regular temp. And when giving a couple of light acceleration the coolant in the reservoir started bubbling and rising.. Could it be the radiator itself ?

Thermostat is bad. Pick up a new one and drill two 1/4 holes 180° apart. Reinstall.

It allows some coolant to pass through even if thermostat sticks closed.

You are either low on coolant or thermostat is stuck.

So you haven't flushed your system then.. you just drained it is all.

Off the top of my head, if u have air trapped in ur system, ur temp a lot of times will rise extremely high, then suddenly drop out. Also, a flush is recommended

Aight guys. Goes to show my heater hose had a tiny hole. Changed it so now it not over heating. Problem now is that the heater itself isn't heating up that much. So should I go on with the coolant flush ?
