Over heating is caused by the cooling system not performing correctly. Some of these problems are easily fixed some not so easily. A good place to start is the coolant or antifreeze. if this is low or old it will not function properly. (when checking the coolant in the radiator make sure the engine is cooled down or serious injury may come to you) Radiator fan relays can go bad also. the relay is what completes a circuit turning on the radiator fans when the engine hits a certain temp. if the relay is bad the fans may not engage. if the coolant is good and the fans are good than the problem may be more severe. it is possible that your water pump is bad. this is a device witch circulates the coolant throughout your engine block. If it is bad then cooled coolant will not be passed through your engine block. A mechanic will be needed to test this problem. One last problem that happens to a lot of vehicles is the thermostat going bad. the thermostat is the device that regulates the temperature of coolant fluids that is passed out of the engine and into the radiator. an easy way to test the thermostat is to let the engine idle until it hits its normal operating temperature. at this point the thermostat should be allowing coolant to flow out of the engine block and into the radiator. If it is not working properly or is not allowing its normal amout of hot coolant through than the radiator will not get hot. if you can touch the radiator of your vehicle while it is at its normal operating temperature than this most likely will be your problem. keep in mind that the radiator may be very hot so dont just grab it. There may be other problems and these tips might not help you but if you are planning on doing any work yourself be very carefull and study up on the job at hand

Triumph stag not starting when hot

what ignition system have you got on your stag? is it the origional twin contact and condenser system, the origional system needed to be setup correctly to work dwell of 26to28degrees the condenser was the favourite suspect.if it has been changed to electronic check for good spark at the king lead. if thats ok no matter which ign. system you have got, the problem may be the twin su fuel pump located in the the boot.make sure the pumps are working should hear them tick at ignition on. it could be fuel vapourisation. is the engine overheating? it will be on stromberg carbs. you should check the diaphams are ok

Engine cuts out when requiring boost

check Fuel pressure regulator by disconnecting the vacuum hose. Didn't say what year you have, yet the timing belt can also cause this as I had similar problems on an 87 and the belts were loose and floppy causing erratic firing/idling. A little easy trick to check timing belts without taking any parts off to get at timing belts, is (and no one knows about this one, hee) with a timing light!

I have a 86 Nissan 720. Suddenly the engine started overheating after about 15 minutes, and there's a loud clacking under the hood when revving the engine. All fluids etc are fine. Any suggestio

you have a rev limiter on that car. DO NOT OVER REV. the engine. The clacking sound is more then likely your valve tap-its from being over heated. Replace your thermostat and make sure you change your coolant every 2 years. Sounds like your thermostat is stuck open. Replace your thermostat every year or 2.

2001 mercury GM LS no heat coming from vents? engines revs up when the blower motor kicks on any ideas

Most likely you are getting air through the defroster vents and nowhere else....This is caused by a vacuum leak somewhere in the vehicle, usually in the climate control switch or directly behind it. It can be remedied by fixing the leak, or the climate control unit if the leak is within the unit itself. The vacuum leak can and will cause the engine to idle higher when the unit is turned on. Also the engine will idle higher to output more power needed to supply the blower motor. This is most likely your problem and solution. Good luck and I hope this helps you.

Took out the thermostat, replaced the radiator, the water is circulating in the radiator but it is still running hot. what do i do next?

Overheating can seriously damage a car's engine if left unchecked. Although overheating simply means that a car's engine temperature exceeds normal operating temperatures, the causes of overheating are varied. What follows is a brief list of some of the most common causes of engine overheating.

    Faulty Radiator
  1. A car that overheats will often have a faulty radiator. A radiator is responsible for cooling hot engine coolant that picks up heat from inside a car's running engine. A radiator "radiates" the heat from engine coolant out into the outside air. A faulty radiator loses its "radiating" effects and allows engine coolant to become overheated, thus rendering it ineffective at adequately cooling and engine.
  2. Faulty Water Pump
  3. A faulty or malfunctioning water pump prevents adequate engine coolant flow and can cause a car to overheat. A water pump serves to pressurize and propel engine coolant throughout a car's engine and radiator to increase the heat-reducing capabilities of engine coolant. A faulty water pump loses its ability to adequately pump and propel engine coolant, and can cause a car to overheat.
  4. Coolant System Leaks
  5. A leaky engine coolant system reduces the level of circulating engine coolant, which increases engine temperature and leads to engine overheating. Radiators, water pumps, and coolant system hoses and seals--all of these coolant system parts can develop leaks, which can result in low coolant levels and engine overheating.
  6. Faulty Thermostat
  7. A car thermostat regulates the flow of engine coolant. A thermostat is a heat-sensitive valve that opens when a car engine reaches a set operating temperature and closes when a car engine is cold and warming up. If a thermostat gets stuck in the closed position, coolant will be prevented from reaching the engine, which will quickly lead to engine overheating and potential engine damage.
  8. Low Engine Oil Level
  9. Engine oil, in addition to lubricating an engine's internal parts, helps to keep engine operating temperatures reduced by eliminating friction within the engine. If engine oil levels are low, friction and heat build up inside an engine, a condition that causes increased engine operating temperatures and can lead to engine overheating.

Vehicle overheating replaced thermostat gets heat then goes cool but when i rev the engine it starts to blow hot heat the more i rev the hotter it gets

Air in system, bleed system manually by filling up reserviour then drive until operating temp. Leave vehicle to cool 2hours or so then refill again. repeat until heat is steady and guage stays normal

chances are that you have not completely and fully bleed the coolant system. take your car to a reputable service center before you cause serious engine damage from overheating if you do not know how to bleed a coolant system.
