Question about 1993 Ford Thunderbird

2 Answers

Car keeps overheating

I have a 93 T-Bird V6. I have had the radiator replaced as well as a new exhaust system, and rebuilt transmission. Now the car over heats and all of the radiator fluid overheats and goes to the plastic over flow leaving hardly no radiator fluid in the radiator. What could make the engine over heat that bad.

My 1996 grand marquis keep overheating


there are several problem that will give this indication and your information is not comprehensive enough to make a good diagnosis
the time factor is critical as some time could be 5 minutes to 5 hours and driving is too loose as it could be at highway speeds or stop go traffic , hill work or under load
so I will give to certain conditions that will over heat the car or cause a rise in operating temperature
head gasket--check with compression test
low water level-- check at cap
faulty radiator cap--have tested
partially blocked radiator--have a flow test done
fins on cores falling off --replace radiator
overheating transmission oil--check the transmission is fully operational as high speed with out over drive in will cause a rise in temp
if in traffic --check viscous fan and fan operation if electric
if under load -check load and tyre pressures
check for brake operation- adjust hand brake to full off
run the fault codes to check air/fuel ratios and timing
check for failed cat converter-- blocked exhaust system

Place car on drive, while holding brake down jumps. When you drive it's stuck on 3rd gear.


Your transmission has failed. Not uncommon for a car that is 12 years old, especially if the car has ever overheated (since the transmission fluid is cooled through the radiator). Take the vehicle to a transmission repair shop, and they will likely recommend replacing the transmission with a rebuilt one.

93 geo tracker still overheating


The coolant has to flow thru the radiator to cool the engine. So you could have a faulty water pump where the impeller is not pushing enough liquid thru the radiator.
Or there may be a restriction of air flow thru the radiator.
Or there could be a problem with the exhaust system or something that is causing the engine to produce more heat than normal.

My 93 olds cutls suprm is overheating. Over a course of events I have replaced a radiator hose, thermostat and replaced the radiator. The service engine light comes on. My drive belt is ripped to shreds...


pull the spark plugs, they should all be the samo color, if any are light tan you have coolant in the cyl, you can also pressurize the rad and check for leakage into the cyls, you will require a probe, or the rad professionally checked for exhaust in the system, other symptoms are rough starting and smoke out of the exhaust

Overheating '97 Ford Taurus


make sure thermostant is good. most important is to make sure you didnt blow a gasket when it overheated, if you have a 3.8 engine those are famous for blowing headgasket. anyway have a block test done first, its a liquid they use to see if exhaust gases are entering the cooling system, good luck ,hope this helps.
