My 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor is overheating, I noticed it last night when I turn the fan on to high heat the gauge will drop to a normal temperature. I checked the fluid level that?s ok, and opened the...

check water level and if your engine temperature does not exceed more than 1/2 then disregard this problem.There is always flow of water in a cooling system,especially when engine is running and this is to allow water circulation.
Now if your temperature is going more than half and there is sufficient water in it then next step is to check the thermostat which is meant to activate the cooling fan.A simple solution will be to unplug the thermostat and allow the fan to run as soon as ignition is on.Hope this helps and please rate this solution.

My 2004 pontiac vibeblows only hot air when i turn on the air conditioning its like the heat is o n really hot air like you got the heat on

check and make sure the a/c compressor is turning on when the a/c is turned on. if it is then make sure the cooling fan comes on, if the compressor is not working then you may have a faulty low pressure switch, you can unplug the electrical connector and test the harness side of the connector by jumping the 2 terminals using a paper clip to see if the compressor turns on. if the cooling fan is not turning on it will cause the a/c system to not operate to reduce the chance of the vehicle overheating when the a/c is turned on. hope this helps

My 2003 dodge durango keeps overheating , i just had new radiator put in and it started overheating again but now it is overheating with a very loud screeching noise like a belt sound what could be ca

as for noise will have to inspect under hood,could be fan or belt or pulley ,water pump .these are some things it could...My suggestion for overheating is replace thermostat. If your car has electric cooling fan then it may not be working..turn defrost on and if fan kicks on then fan motor is good..Now this does not mean that fan is working properly because fan is controlled by heat sensor switch that kicks fan on when motor reaches heat range......Things i would have checked....hope this information helps and good luck and Please rate my post...

My porsche cayenne s keeps over heating but only

I think either you may have to flush the radiator or replace the thermostat. Really would not hurt to do both.

Fan blowing but not overheating

That shouldnt be a problem. I have a 99 Sebring and it does the same thing. it has never overheated. if it is only blowing small amounts of heat you should be alright. and the fan is blowing to prevent the car from overheating.
having a heater running will help a car from overheating, it actually helps cool the engine.
