Car is running hot

I see no water or antifreeze running out but the temp gauge shows hot. I did get under the car and some water build up was near a flywheel.

    Let the engine cool and inspect the FREEZE PLUGS. Freeze plug is metal cap that press into the engine blocks. In event of a freeze or over-heating these plugs will leak before destroy the engine. ==== Please check out my Fixya TIP link HERE

The freeze plugs has a slow leaking.

Do a coolant system pressure test to locate the source of the leak.

Vetra 1800 2004......temp gauge up and down,car seems to be running hot,only hot air out of vents,not heard fan come on 4 ages,any ideas?????

have your thermostat checked or remove it yourself car can run without it if it improves replace it with a new one these do sometimes get stuck ,if you do replace it always add antifreez to your water this also helps to keep your water and water jackets clean.

The temp gauge is showing hot but the water in the rateator is'nt hot

If the gauge shows hot within the first 30 seconds of starting your car in the morning, you probably have an electrical short in your temperature sensor. This may be located on the engine block or on the radiator. If you can locate it, you might try to disconnect the electrical connector to it and see if the gauge stops indicating hot. If so, you might just buy and install a new temperature gauge sensor (you will need to drain the antifreeze from the radiator (and later replace/reuse it) using the finger-turned draincock at the bottom of the radiator, and should only do this when the engine is actually cold - check the temperature of the radiator cap and squeeze the radiator hoses to see that they are not pressurized, then if cold, remove the radiator cap, place a container below the drain and open the drain). Use teflon tape to wrap the threads of the sensor (in the opposite direction you would screw it in) before installing. Be aware that radiator fluid is toxic if injested by pets or people.

97 Hyundai Lantra. Temp gauge shows engine very hot

If the replacement thermostat is good, and installed properly, then the temp sensor might be bad. I hate to tell you ($$$$$) but waterpump could be bad (more expensive)

High temp gauge and no heating

Let's don't say that it is the head gasket yet. There is a heater core that could be bad. First, replace the t'stat. When putting water/ antifreeze back into the car. Add the water to the outgoing hose of the radiator that feeds into the engine. This will insure you get water into the engine. Of course you will still add water to the radiator itself. Let the engine run while you are adding water. It won't overheat while you are doing this. If you do have a blown headgasket, you will have water in your oil. Does the gauge go to the red at low RPMs only? Lt me know what you find out.
