What is causing my car to blow cold air from heat. them it over heats while blowing cold air when hot air does blow car runs fine no overheating please help. 2000 Monte Carlos 3.4


more than likely your losing cold water from your water system, make sure your water pump is up to scratch...sounds strange, but you need cold water for heat through your air conditioning...

Overheating and no heat


With what you describe sounds like the hot water is just heating up but not circulating and cooling correctly. Possible causes, airlock, faulty water pump, check fan belt tension, not broken etc, blockage in engine water way or collapsed hose. Are you losing water at all? Head gasket?

Overheating


Assuming the radiator fan works correctly, my guess would be a leaking head gasket.

Car is over heating


I take it that you care is looking like it is overheating when you are idling and the car is not hot. What you have is a blown head gasket or crack head. If you mean that it is overheating after a 5-10 minutes of idling then you have a frozen thermostat. If it is overheating after 20+ minutes of idling then you probably have a bad fan or water pump.

I have a 99 Cadillac D'Elegance, that just started overheating. It didn't lose anti freeze/coolant until after it overheated. I turned the heat up to the highest temp. and it blew out cool


water level was low thats why it blew cold ,you may have a slight leak somewhere but once the level drops below a critical amount then it will overheat so ask a local mechanic to have a good look for you as this sort of problem is often beyond the scope of a owner to locate the leak ,when running check the difference between the top and bottom rad hoses as well if bottom hose cold then it could be the thermostat .

Im having a problem with my 01 civic. its overheating when i raise my rpms, but if i stay low on rpm guage no overheating. then i lose a little coolant and heater starts off fine but loses heat. is this my...


I would start with the thermostat. sounds like it could be in stuck in the closed position, not allowing coolant to circulate the engine. Its very easy to change and inexpensive

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.

Engine overheating


Assuming you have no loss of water invesigate the cooling fan operation.If you are losing water but cannot see signs of this then investigate your head gasket.
