Good day. I drive a corsa sport 1.6 2004 model and im recently experiencing an overheating problem. I just replace the radiator. It overheat within 15 to 20min. What would be the problem?

So it overheated before you replaced the radiator and continues to overheat? Have you changed the thermostat and attempted to flush the cooling system?

Another item to check would be to make sure the electric cooling fan (assuming your Corsa uses one) is running as the temperature climbs. If your car uses a belt-driven fan, then the fan clutch may be bad or the blades of the fan may be damaged. This assumes no one has removed the fan shroud for some reason.

Cooling fan is not working causing an overheat problem. What should I do?

Hi, first verify the sensor is working. If you have a gage, is it reading correctly? If you have only a light, does it come on when the engine is hot? If not, unplug the sensor and connect the wires in the connector to see if the gage or light react. If not, you have a wiring issue. If shorting the connector works but the gage does not read correct, replace the sensor.
If all is good with the sensor, disconnect the fan and use a test light to see if there is power at the connector terminals when the engine is hot. If no power, check the cooling fan relay. If there is power, make sure the blades on the fan connector are not corroded and reconnect. If the motor still doesn't turn, try jumping it straight to the battery with some wires. If the motor will not turn, replace the motor.

The coolant sensor is usually screwed into the top of the engine in the front by the belt or near where one of the large radiator hoses connects to the engine. The relay should be in the relay box in the engine compartment.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

I have a 2001 nissan sentra. My car fan is running and making loud noise. Also my temparture gage is going up but my car is not overheating.

small engine does take allot to overheat as long as the car stay in motions even though the cooling is not operating, if you were sitting in the heavy and stuck in traffic and the OAT is 98-100 degree with high humidity and running the AC, chances are the engine will over heat quickly. very rare the temp guage become faulty, I would to go ahead and repalce the temperature sensor which gives the guage the correct reading, if have high miles 75k or more replace thermostat which open and close when it reach proper tempature and thermostat switch which turn the cooling fan on and off. all three parts are fairly cheap to fix and replace. all three unit is very important to the engine cooling beside the oil.

Temperature gage rises and engine overheats on our honda accord. thermostat has been changed and it is not any better. whats next?

The next thing to do is to observe the car as it idles for 10 minutes to ensure the electric radiator fan is coming on if not replace the fan relay if that doesn't work replace the coolant temp. sensor that activates the relay that activates the fan after that ti can only be the fan itself that is if the fan is not coming on.

What is causing my 99 ford f150 to overheat while on the highway

try washingthe raditor at a car wash wash thre the engine compartment to the outside. clean the ac fan condensor then check that the fan is not loose next replace the anitfreeze if it's more than two years old, and the radiator cap if it still does it replace the thermostate gasket, these are the most common problems for over heating. you could have a clutch fan bad too but do the other stuff first it's cheeper.

Hot wire the fan motor to make sure the fan works. If it works, check the relay that operates it.

Overheats in traffic only to 21 degrees

Go the Cheaper Route First and Go back to the Parts store and ask for a Cooler Thermostat. Try that and let me know what you have got.

Cooling fan wont work

The water temp sensor is located near the thermostat housing. This sensor is what tells the ECM to turn the fan on/off. The water temp sending unit is located near the same area. You know you have the correct sensor is because the water temp sensor has a 2 prong plug. The water temp sending unit only has 1 prong.
