PIECE O' **** - 0e7b3aa.gifOnly pic I've found for PT Cruiser cooling system. Laughed as the numbering is all f'd up and doesn't match description. Anyway it looks like the thermostat housing is in the same place as the Radiator cap so locating that the rest is just a matter of getting it apart. I didn't find any proceedure but I hope the pic helps.

Car overheats and engine sputters like there is misfire. Hook it up to computer and got no dcd codes. I need help.


Assuming you have enough coolant in the car, try a new radiator cap first. If that doesn't fix it try changing the thermostat and seal.
If it only happens with the a/c on at low speeds the aux cooling fan is bad. There is a low speed fan and high speed fan depending on how hot the motor is. Both turn off at speeds higher than 35mph.
If it happens without the a/c it could be bad water pump, radiator fan or a cracked head. Cracked head could allow steam leaking into the intake causing misfire.

I have a volvo 940 1994 and I have replaced the water pump but it is still overheating sometimes which makes me think of the thermostat and if so where is it located and I want to replace my timing belt is...


if the thermostat is broken the fan should keep turning. Check the fan if it spins once you get the car warmed. Otherwise it could be a blown fuse or relay for the fan or the fan itself may be bad. Check the radiator hoses and the radiator cap for loose or worn parts. Steam may escape there decreasing the water in the cooling system. The problem could be also be with the water pump. If you are to replace the timing belt have the water pump replaced since you will spend the same effort getting to both the timing belt and water pump. It is recommended that this be done by a specialist to avoid damaging the engine.

My 2002 Volkswagen GTI has been overheating. It almost hit 290 every time. But it only does that when im driving. Theres also steam coming from the bottom of the reserve. I notice my auxiliary pump is...


the lose of pressure is causing the overheating, VW and most other German cars, require that the cooling system be sealed to hold the pressure in order to maintain the right temperature. The leak in what I am guessing is the water pump is causing the system to lose pressure therefore it is going to gain heat. In other words repair the leak and you will fix the overheating issue.

My 99 ford expedition is overheating. We've put on a new water pump, new serpentine belt, new thermostat. What else is there that could be causing this problem.

check fan if electric check running properly if mechanical bolted to engine check the clutch and belt usually the fan clutch goes and causes the fan not to spin fast enough to draw air across radiator also check belt for proper tightness other problem would be bad thermostat

My 1997 Dodge Intrepid overheats. I've replaced the thermostat, and it continues to overheat. I noticed adjacent to one of the radiator hoses, a ribbed hose that is split. Could this cause the car to...


Now that you've eliminated the thermostat, it could be a number of other things. Don't drive the car too far until you've fixed the overheating problem - overheating can destroy an engine.

That split ribbed hose you see is plastic wire loom - it carries and protects electrical wires, and is not the cause of overheating.

1. Low coolant level
2. Radiator hose split/cracked, causing low coolant level.
3. Head Gasket - leaking, causing low coolant level
4. Thermostat - stuck closed (you eliminated this possibility)
5. Radiator cap - worn/damaged
6. Radiator fins - obstructed by debris/cardboard
7. Water Pump belt - missing/broken
8. Heater Core - leaking, causing low coolant level
9. Intake Manifold Gasket - leaking, worn, damaged
10. Radiator Fan Relay - faulty
11. Radiator Fan Blade - broken, missing
12. Radiator Fan Sensor/Switch - faulty
13. Water Pump - leaking, causing low coolant level
14. Radiator Fan Motor - faulty

My primary suspects would be Rad Fan Relay (#10), and
Rad Fan Switch (#12).

Probably thermostat sticking or bad water pump. CK the belt to the water pump to see if it's loose. If the thermostat sticks, water can't be pumped thru the motor, overheats and overheats the radiator causing hot water or steam to build up pressure.and the relief valve will open allowing the peessure to be relieved and blows coolent everywhere. If the radiator overheats turn off motor wait until the radiator cools before removing cap. been there, done that-------once

My 2000 Saturn SL2 is overheating. At first it would overheat when sitting idle and then once speed reached 35+mph it would cool off, but now it gets hot and stays. What is causing this?


Well, the overheating at an idle would normally be caused by your cooling fan not engaging. I would first check to see if you fan is working by turning on your a/c (this will override the fan sensor and turn it on before it gets above operating temperature). If it doesn't come on you should check your AUX. Fan Relay. If thats ok, you probably need a new fan motor but first replace your coolant temp. sensor as this is an inexpensive parts and may save you quite a bit of money (also your vehicle may be running at the normal temperature but your temp sensor may be sending a signal telling you it's hot). This will explain why it was overheating at an idle. As far as it overheating while driving, you should first check to see if your water pump is leaking and make sure your belt is intact. If the water pump pulley is not spinning your belt will be glossy from excessive heat from friction. If your water pump is good and you can spin the pulley by hand, you should then consider when the last time you replaced the thermostat as it may be stuck closed. also your radiator may have some blockages in it so I would replace the thermostat, drain the coolant by removing the lower hose and spray a hose into the radiator until the water comes out looking pretty clear. I hope this helps you figure this out.
