Part was purchased to replace the original part that had developed a leak between where the hose connections mount to the base of the part. The new part leaked in the exact same place upon installation, causing coolant to spray throughout the engine compartment, including into the air intake. Having a dealer replace the part and flush the engine cost over $800.

        This is the second one I bought. The 1st one I bought from Napa and it lasted 4 years. I wish it was made out of better material, but that is job security I guess.

                  • Q:

                    The original unit had a small antifreeze leak at the base of the unit, so I bought & installed this part approximately 2 months ago. It seemed to work fine, at first. Now, when I drive this car, my cooling system sounds like there's a rumbling noise going on under the hood with steam blowing out as if there's a fire under the hood. The plastic overflow bottle has a little air hole at the top, but the coolant sprays heavily through the hole. I haven't changed the thermostat, so I'm guessing I need to change it. The engine is a NEW FACTORY ENGINE, so I know the problem is not the engine. Should I take the unit back & get another replacement, or get a replacement unit from the dealer, or should I consider it to be a more serious problem? I have too many cars in my neighborhood & I just bought a new car. I need to sell this beautiful car, but I refuse to sell it unless & until I'm absolutely certain that it's back in IMMACULATE, PERFECT & MINT condition. Any suggestions???

                      A:

                      Hi Edwin, my answer to your question on the Dorman - OE Solutions Coolant Air Bleeder and Housing - part# 902-302 is that if the vehicle overheats and water pump is probably good if you can squeeze and feel pressure and/or heat through the tubes, the problem could be with the unit and you might need to replace the thermostat also. However, without the presence of the vehicle we could neither diagnose the problem nor provide you with a 100% answer. We would suggest you to get assistance from a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                  • Q:

                    This part popped off of my engine yesterday when my car overheated. The top part seperated from the bolted on housing. Could this be the symptom of a larger problem (water pump)or could it have failed and be the actual cause of my engine overheating. It was spewing steam when I pulled over once I noticed my engine overheating. I tried to make it to the nearest parts store but I heard the sound, pulled over and noticed it had popped off. I noticed that when it happened my engine temperature gauge immediately went back to normal. I also noticed that there was no coolant in the overflow tank, but no puddle beneath my car. I was thinking maybe the guys at walmart that did my last oil change did not check and fill it. Right now my plan is to replace it, fill the overflow tank and take it in to a service shop to have my water pump checked, I was just wondering if the Coolant Outlet Flange could actually be my problem based off of what just described.

                      This part may be the reason why your engine overheated but since we can not be there to properly diagnose your vehicle, we are unable to give a more accurate answer.

                    • A:

                      I noticed that mine is starting to leak right below the top part the same as yours, but it hasn't yet popped off. I saw alot of caked up residue around it. Perhaps its just a flimsy design at that point. I wasn't getting any heat out of the dash at low RPM, and the coolant bottle was nearly empty (I noticed that this part channels overflow coolant into the bottle). I will be replacing it soon. The pump is probably ok if you can squeeze and feel pressure and/or heat through the tubes, but you should probably replace the thermostat also.
