I overheated my car and split the radiator this was fixed, then only 2 days later it overheated again this time they replaced the theromstate I have had it back for a few days and now the 1st day I had it back the temputure normal then a bit too high then normal again it did this a few times, I've check the coolant level and had to refil it twice now but the temputure is now sitting where it normally did, I am a bit worried that it seems to be losing coolant but there are no leaks under the car.

New radiator but car is overheating still

Having a leak will introduce steam as the pressure is too low and the steam acts like an air lock that reduces cooling capacity.
Repair the leak and all should be well if the head gasket is still intact and not damaged by overheating.

Vehicle temp rises above normal and heater blows cold air?

if the truck its self is overheating 9 times out of 10 it it the theromastate unless the heater hose to the heater core is stoped to find the theromstate follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the top of the engine and its right there at the end of the hose under the thermostat housing.

My 1997 Dodge Intrepid overheats. I've replaced the thermostat, and it continues to overheat. I noticed adjacent to one of the radiator hoses, a ribbed hose that is split. Could this cause the car to...

Now that you've eliminated the thermostat, it could be a number of other things. Don't drive the car too far until you've fixed the overheating problem - overheating can destroy an engine.

That split ribbed hose you see is plastic wire loom - it carries and protects electrical wires, and is not the cause of overheating.

1. Low coolant level
2. Radiator hose split/cracked, causing low coolant level.
3. Head Gasket - leaking, causing low coolant level
4. Thermostat - stuck closed (you eliminated this possibility)
5. Radiator cap - worn/damaged
6. Radiator fins - obstructed by debris/cardboard
7. Water Pump belt - missing/broken
8. Heater Core - leaking, causing low coolant level
9. Intake Manifold Gasket - leaking, worn, damaged
10. Radiator Fan Relay - faulty
11. Radiator Fan Blade - broken, missing
12. Radiator Fan Sensor/Switch - faulty
13. Water Pump - leaking, causing low coolant level
14. Radiator Fan Motor - faulty

My primary suspects would be Rad Fan Relay (#10), and
Rad Fan Switch (#12).

1997 jag xk8 overheated, replaced thermastat and Waterpump still overheating?

Last year my car suddenly overheated while idling to the point the coolant tank exploded. I took it to a foreign car repair shop where they replaced the coolant tank and put in another thermostat. It didn't make it home before it overheated again. I took it to the Jag dealership where they felt that my hoses had expanded to much during the overheat so they replaced all of my hoses to a tune of $1000. Three months later it overheated again. I took it to another foreign car repair shop where they discovered the real culprit. An impeller had broken off of my waterpump, I had a blockage in my radiator, and I had a short in one of the coolant fans that made it only work part of the time. So about $2400 later my car has been coolant issue free for about 2 years now. Good luck and I hope this helps.

This is Not a yes or no question, Maybe if you have not replaced the radiator and maybe not, it calls for speculation (anything is possible) I hope you have no more overheating issues But I can not say definitely that your car will never overheat again.Good Luck To You

1997 cadillac sls overheating

Allow it to cool down and refill system while running with heater on hot. Hopefully this will get the air out of the system. However, if this condition persists, have the radiator checked for hydrocarbons. These engines are sensitive to overheat and you may have blown a head gasket. (hope not)
Good luck!

2.3l ranger keeps overheating, been through two radiators already.

Hello Ranger Joe, eight months and two radiators is very uncommon. Question, Have you visually confirmed the leak in the radiators or is the leak near the hose connections? Replacing the radiator, cap, water pump, & the thermostat leaves only two others, the hoses and the engine block/heads. Far fitched will be something or somebody poking holes in the radiator.
