Question about 2001 Kia Rio

2 Answers

Intermittent overheating Too many trips to the garage and they still have not fixed the problem. Fan and thermostat were replaced less than a year ago but the engine still overheats on long drives. Short trips do not cause overheating.

Hello Lia, you did all the right things to fix it but there is some thing elise going on ,if your sure that ,thermostat is not in back wards and its not defective (they do get stuck )and fans are running on time the only thing left is the start of a head gasket ,eaven thoe coolant is clear and no coolant in oil, .did you purge all air out of motor, (no joke) you'll see 2 air purge valves on top of motor ,they look like brake bleeder valves,one on right side and one on left side traped air will cause over heating as well.
I really hope this helped you in some way .

i would check the thermostat first. even if your mechanic did replace it.the thermostats you buy these days only last about a year or 2.

Overheating


thank you for choosing fixya.com and welcome!have you replaced your thermostat lately? it may also only be low coolant in your radiator.just make sure that your radiators full of coolant. there are alot of things to look at when overheating is an issue. is your cooling fan coming on? #1thing low coolant,,,#2 thing leaking or bad water pump,do you see fluid leaking from under the front of car when the radiators full? #3 bad thermostat in the engine,replacement thermostat not that bad. less than $75.00 parts and labor,suggest you shop at local garages,not dealer. compare prices. or ban radiator fan. and the fan replacement can depend on motor size.look for motor size under the hood and call for parts and labor prices seperatly.do not call same garage to get labor and parts prices,be smart,call the dealer and get the highest price for part and labor. then call your mechanic to get estimates of your repair. thank you!

You might try replacing your radiator cap or if you system is pressurized, you may have to replace the degas bag (fill container). Another problem could be a bad thermostat or an improperly installed thermostat. I forgot to mention, does your engine fan operate? If not, that would also cause your car to overheat.

Overheating


there is a coolant cap on the overflow bottle check it for seal
i'd just replace it
also if you put the new thermostat in backward the overheating would be significant

2001 nissan maxima overheating problem persists


It sounds like the the thermostat that was replaced is probably faulty. This being the cheapest and easiest to do I would start there. I can't reply about the air pockets. I have never heard of that before.

Mini Cooper convertible is overheating, fan contiues after stop


I had this exact same problem -- for about a year and a half! Replaced thermostat, replaced sensor twice, replaced overflow tank, replaced radiator cap, placed a grounding kit on the car in case the problem was electrical ... and was ABOUT to replace thermostat again and then the water pump when a new mechanic suggested we bleed air out of the cooling system. The heater core was PACKED with air, as was the upper hose valve area. Previous mechanic had been using a pressurized fill device to bleed the system and this had just been backing air into the heater core. There are two valves under the hood for bleeding air -- one on the heater core and one on the upper hose. It only takes a few minutes to fix this!
