OPERATE THE ENGINE WITH THE RAD. CAP LOOSE AND CHECK FOR WATER FLOW AFTER THE ENGINE HAS WARMED UP SOME WATER SHOULD START TO OVERFLOW AS THE TEMP. CLIMBS ON THE GAUGE.. BE CAREFULL AS YOU REMOVE THE RAD. CAP SOMETIMES THE REMOVAL OF THE CAP WILL CAUSE THE HOT WATER TO RUSHOUT AND YOU COULD GET SCALDED.. IF THIS SEEMS TOO COMPLICATED TAKE THE CAR TO A REPUTABLE REPAIR SHOP FOR A DETAILED DIAGNOSIS. IN THE LONG RUN THIS WOULD BE MUCH CHEAPER THAN A NEW ENGINE... HOPE THIS HELPS

I think that you can install a thermostat backwards and it may not work correctly; just make sure. I would open the radiator and run the car to operating temperature and see if the water level drops in the radiator. If it does than the thermostat is opening properly. If you have a cold water still in the radiator, than it means that coolant isn't circulating properly. It could possibly be an issue somewhere in the lower hose.

Mitsubishi shogun 1998 model 2.8 over heating no leeks water is blowing back into the overflow bottle when hot


How are you sure it is overheating? Temp gauge? Most likely are stuck thermostat, bad fan thermostat switch, bad fan. bad head gasket. Coolant going into overflow when hot is how that system is suppose to work. As it cools, fluid is drawn back into radiator. It it is not really overheating, bad radiator cap can allow coolant into reservoir more than normal.

Did you have the head checked for warping and crack tested. because combusting gas is finding its way into the cooling system. have you replaced the thermostat .

Car overheating


You may have a blown engine head gasket. Check your oil to see if it is milky because water is getting into the oil, and check the water to see if oil is getting into the coolant.
If you have either of these, you may need to have a new head gasket for the engine, and hopefully you do not have a cracked engine head.
This will require a fair bit of work to fix correctly. Your local garage or mechanic may be your next call.
There are some products you can use in the coolant for either of these, but it is only a temporary fix.

Overheating


You have a head gasket problem with the engine generating abnormal pressure, and sending all the antifreeze to the reservoir, thereby leaving the engine running dry; it is dangerous for the water pump to operate with no water.
Drill 3 11/64 or 3/16" holes in the thermostat side facing the engine, making sure not to touch the opening mechanism; this will keep antifreeze always running thereby, compensating for the abnormal pressure regenated by head gasket leak(s).
Your thermostat was never your problem.
In cold weather, 5 degress celsius or under, the thermostat takes longer to open and more antifreeze will be sent to the reservoir leading to an overheating.. Partially cover the radiator with a sheet metal piece to make the thermostat open faster and stay open, as the antifreeze is not being cold that much by cold air. You're fooling the cooling system into warm weather driving.
Don't waste your money buying radiator stop leak or liquids to repair head gaskets; this will only corrode and make your radiator to eventually leak.

94 toyota camry xle v6 overheating noticed leak in overflow res.


I think the leakage out of the reservoir is being caused by the overheating, not the other way round.

This can be caused by several things:

- failed thermostat (not opening)
- failed temperature sensor (not turning on the fans)
- blown fuse or failed relays in fan supply (if electric)
- soft hose from radiator to water pump "sucking in" and preventing flow
- blown head gasket allowing combustion gas into the water jacket (less likely)

1996 Acura 3.2TL Overheating Problem...


From your description of symtoms it sounds like you have a bad water pump. If the coolant is not circulating properly you will have a heating problem. Sometimes even a new thermostat can stick and cause the engine to overheat. I have seen them fail in as little as a week after they were installed.

I don't have the owner's manual. The reservoir says ''Engine Coolant'' and it is empty; engine overheating. Is there a special fluid to use or can I just use plain water? Thanks


U need to use 50/50 mixture of long life/extendedlife coolant availible from any automotive parts store for around $8 per gallon. but you must have a leak, check for coolant leaking when the car is running, don't overheat this engine or u will blow the cylinder head gasket, a $1000.00 repair.

98 subaru, overheating


most likely not. it's most likely the thermostat, it holds the coolant in the engine block to warm it up, then opens to keep the engine at a general temperature range. It goes bad and stays closed, hence the overheating
