Engine running after key removal

It's called "dieseling". Your engine is so hot it keeps running even without spark to the spark plugs. The vacuum caused by the moving pistons sucks in more air/fuel, and this keeps the process going in a vicious cycle.

Checking the cooling system for leaks and flushing the coolant would be the cheapest place to start. Flush twice with distilled water and flush compound, then add a 50/50 mix of distilled water and antifreeze. This will also help your emissions, since NOx is created in a hot engine.

Water reserve bottle is emptying and engine is getting how

flushing a radiator is a waste of time and money as blocked cores do not flush. Have a pressure test done on the coolant system and check for external leaks. have a compression test done to check for head gasket and cracked head. Have a flow test done on the radiator and if shows signs of blockage replace the radiator .. Always fill the radiator at the radiator cap and not the reserve bottle. The reserve bottle water will not go down until the engine coolant starts to cool so if it is going down when the engine is hot then you have a bad leak in the reservoir bottle.

2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue- Radiator Flush

you may need to replace the thermostat or the water pump to solve the overheating issue.
The leak in the overflow was NOT the cause of over heating.
You do have a radiator cap. It is the one on top of the overflow.

The radiator drain petcock is on the bottom of the radiator near one of the corner edges.
(Some face engine, others face the grille)
If for some reason you still can not find it, you can always pull the lower radiator hose (make sure water/engine is cold)

once you flush/fill the system, use a 50/50 mix of water and the proper antifreeze. (older cars use green, newer use orange)

If you are unsure, just ask the guys at the auto parts place which one you need and note that they sell an orange color that can be safely used in old and new cars and it can also be mixed with any color of fluid.

After you have the system filled, start the engine and remove the fill cap.... let it run and watch for air to rise out from the opening. (Some coolant/water may overflow, but you need to watch for any air bubbles coming out)

Once you don't see any air trying to escape, put the cap on tight and you should be good to go,

Another cause for overheating is air trapped in the system.

I hope this helps.

Replaced thermostat and water pump on 96 contour- still overheats and no heat out of heater core

Did you bleed the air out of the cooling system? If not do this. Raise the car up in front with a floor jack, then fill the coolant tank as full as poss, start and run the engine until it just gets to the edge of hot, then shut off the engine off and run cold water over the radiator core, this will **** the coolant in and expel the air. If that does not cure the problem you may have a leaking cylinder head gasket.

Engine violently overheating. New thermostat, new radiator cap, just did a flush, and has new coolant. What should I check next

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. You need to make sure your fans are working properly. If they are not, check the fuses. If the fuse is good, test the fan and the wires to the fan for current. You could have a bad water pump or water pump impeller. It may be a bad head gasket. Make sure the radiator is working correctly. Make sure that there are no leaks on the engine. Start the vehicle and inspect the engine for leaks. Check your oil and make sure coolant is not inside it. It is possible for it to leak inside.

Water leaks from my engine block below the exhaust manifold i think it is coming from one of the circular portion, does this mean that i have a crck on the block? there is no water goin to the oil

what you are describing is a freeze plug, and it so that is great news for you since they are inexpensive and fairly easy to replace-they are designed to protect the engine from forces of expanding coolant damaging or breaking an engine internally-you need to have the old one pryed out clean up the area around it, and get the correct one and tap it into place so that the edges are flush with the face of the block.

95 ford conversion van with a 351 engine. replaced the radiator, water pump and thermostat last year. The water pump leaked when cold and finally replaced water pump and thermostat again. Got the leak...

If you didn't do a thorough cooling system flush with the radiator replacement last year, then i would say you may have excessive build up of rust, scale and other debris. This will certainly clog up a new radiator quickly. You may still have a restriction. I would do a good flushing, including REVERSE flushing until water runs clear. This should help... Good luck, my friend.

Engine overheating at high rpms

check the casting on your replacement water pump..4.0l engines require a reverse rotating water pump..may be causing your problem.

Jiffy lupe said i need engine flush for my 2002 Jeep Liberty

No, this is not normal. if you have coolant or water leaking into the engine piston chambers, you will need a head gasket not an engine flush. if you open the oil cap to add oil to the engine and you see a lot of gunk under the cap, then its time for that flush. I would be concern about the more serious issue and that is that there is coolant or water leaking into the combustion chambers. this is a sign of a bad head gasket.

please rate and god bless..

How to flush the engine coolant in a Fiat Sciento?

You need water and antfreeze half and half 50/50 mixture. If damage to the raditor,it will leak outside. If damage to the engine it will leak either outside or inside into the oil,and the engine is usually badly damaged. I hope you replaced the water with the antfreeze in time.
