Get your car up to operating temp and slowly run you hand around the radiator ( avoiding the cooling fans of course ) see if the temp is the same all the way around your radiator if it is not you have a blocked radiator or the thermostat is still not working or you havent bleed it properly. if it is hot check the radiator cap quite alout of problems are caused by the rad cap

My 2000 SL2 is still overheating after all has been replaced i.e. water pump, radiator, I took the thermostat out (but when the cars is running, there isn't a good flow of water) the head gasket too.


Did you flush the system out before installing the new water pump? Scale may have loosened up and blocked some flow. Reverse flush the engine, radiator and heater core. Removing the thermostat for testing is ok, but don't plan to run it like that. It may actually run hotter without the thermostat.

My 1999 dodge caravan is still overheating. I have already replaced the thermostat and the water pump, also there is no heat. please help me someone!


Hi there.
Well you can either have a problem with either radiator outer {dust/dirt in outer core of radiator or clogged up inside were water goes, or soft hoses,blowen head gasket plus a few others ,but first go to garage to were you blow up your tyres and use the air hose and blow out the radiator core where the air goes in, 2 drain out radiator water and then refill with water at 1 ltr at a time and then check your info car book and find how much water the radiator takes ,if it dosent take all the ltrs then the radiator is blocked inside.
if engine runs rough missing etc then get your Head gasket checked out.
When you say no heat is that with heat on gauge or no heat from heater, as it could be heater blockage same as radiator core. So let me know how you get on.

replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap, what i would do is flush out the coolant system go auto parts store buy a radiator flush kit replace water pump do all this see what happen you need to add 50/50 antifreeze and water to coolant system.

2003 nissan sentra no heat, over heating


If the engine has overheated, chances are pretty good that you now have a warped or cracked cylinder head and a blown head gasket. Those engines are very unforgiving when it comes to being overheated.

Even if there were no hydrocarbons detected I am almost positive you have a bad head gasket.Usually the back head on the number one cylinder.Almost all the ones I have done with this exact problem has been the rear head and the number 1 cylinder.Hair line crack between the cylinder and water jacket.I always replace both head gaskets.Hope this helps.Good luck.

1996 Honda Passport overheated. Heater started only hot air when moving, then would go cold at stops two days ago. When it overheated today, a lot of steam came out of the radiator cap. I noticed the...


Ususally when the heater blows hot air only when the car is at hight RPM is because low coolant in the system. It sounds like a bad thermostat . In the worst case you need to do a diagnostic check to the head gasket. Because the first thing to get blowen out when the car over heat are the head gasket.

Over heating when driving. changed thermostat, changed head gasket, still over heating and now it is hard to start


It is hard to start because the recent overheat causing a gap between the head gasket reducing the compression ratio in each cylinder hence it is difficult for a combustion.
The most culprit of the car overheating is the poor circulation of coolant due to bad pump or/ and clog up radiator. The 2 important things that have not been mentioned are needed to take care of now.

Have an '85 CJ7--put in new radiator and thermostat, new water pump--fan shroud installed, Jeep still overheats, motor runs good, doesn't act like it's a head gasket problem????? Can't figure out why it's...


Take out the thermostat and run it like this for while. If the motor still over heats: Look over by the battery, do you see where those two hoses from the radiator and the water manifold are going into the firewall? Take the hose going to the manifold from the firewall off of the connection at the firewall and connect it directly to the water pump. I think the manifold hose is the one on the right just make sure it's not the one coming from the water pump. You'll have to remove the hose coming to the fire wall from the water pump where it is connected at the pump but, that's OK for now just tie/tape it to something out of the way. Now then, your water pump will be sending water directly to the water manifold without any obstruction. When you run the motor for a little while and find that it stays super cool, I then suggest (if you want any heated air this winter) that you have the heater core (there behind the firewall where the two hoses were going) flushed clean or replaced and hooked back up. Once water can flow freely through the system your thermostat can probably be reinstalled w/ out overheating the motor.

Mazda bongo 2.5 turbo diesel 1996. over heating


no im a mechanic it sounds like that you have an air lock in the cooling system .i am familiar with ford freda and bongo and the design where the engine is is a bit far from the radiator ,so the problem with air locks magnifies.really the solution is just drain the water and refill it slowly while you are pressing and releasing,just repeat the action on the top radiator hose to get rid of any air trapping within the system,it's as simple as that really.you want it to have just water and no air as this will cause a blockage.
