There is a fan in the very front of the car that is not working, you can see it without lifting the hood. Make sure the wires are connected properly and if they are replace the fan. Your ATF will start overheating on longer trips without this. I have opne and just dealt with the problem

Can a bad heater core (apparent small leak) cause overheating?


Yes. The engines coolant goes thru the heater core to provide heat. If it leaks out enough coolant it can result in overheating.

My engine overheat when A/C is running on a slow moving traffic or on parking.


I would check and see how much air is actually moving thru the radiator. The fan may not be running fast enough or you may have debris blocking the air flow. Also make sure the system is full of coolant and no air pockets.

My car keeps over heating I have replaced the thermostat and radiator hoses what else could there be that keeps it over heating?


If it overheats on the freeway or constantly moving over 35 mph, it will more likley be the radiator blocked upped.

If it overheats only in slow moving traffic, it will likley be a thermo fan issue.

If it overheats all the time and is losing coolant it could be a blown head gasket.

If you've had any major work done to the engine when or since changing radiator, it may have old gasket etc blocking top of cores. Make sure thermostat isn't blocked and ensure radiator fan is doing it's job.
