Refill radiator with engine cold.
If no drop in water level when full and with the cap off, then restart the engine.

Does the water spout out of the radiator like a small geyser? If so, then you likely have a failed head gasket or damaged cylinder wall.

If the level drops but does not spout out of the radiator, then check the water pump for damage and leakage.

If you find it difficult to find the source of the leak, then you may need to use a radiator pressure testor to apply pressure to the system, to allow the leak to become more obvious.

Since the car ran well for a month after you put the new thermostat, I would say that you have a leak somewhere. Look under the car every time you park, and keep filling the coolant. It is possible that you have a more serious problem, but until you figure out what it is, this may keep you on the road. Check the fluid level every day. Tell us what happens. Also make sure your oil is not milky and there is no oil in the radiator - if this happens, you have serious problems.

SOURCE: overheating 2003 dodge durango. What could be the problem??

When engine running, ensure no engine combustion gas bubbles in coolant resevoir (if so, the head gasket is blown).

Check cooling fans are operating ok (when required when car warms up), if not check
1) fuse,
2) relay operation,
3) heat sensor switch.

Replace thermostat.
When re-filling cooling system, bleed off any airlock as necessary.

Check for collapsing (soft) coolant hose on suction side of waterpump when engine revs above idle.

SOURCE: my car was overheating and antifreeze was leaking

most likey if you changed the thermostate and gasket and antifrezze and water your fan clutch has gone bad an needs to be replaced the clutch works on a friction device the hotter it gets the more the friction plates ingauges causeing the clutch to turn much faster thush cooling the engine. Without this cooling action this will destroy the engine and trans misssionsdm without this cooling so this is true to this date the cooling in fan fan has to work to be able to keep engine cool. now days they call it a puke tank to keep from burning up the engines and is designed so that hot water is pushed out of the tank into the overflow tank so that when it gets hot there us bo waiting for the fluid to be sucked intothe radiator it's done automatically and saves the engines. So small changes have stuck with us and saved the lives of people in the miliatry and in the non milataray systems..

That is really quick, like you are getting no water flow at all. Make sure that a radiator hose is not collapsing enough to stop the flow. If possible on that model, take off the radiator cap and shine a light to see if the water passages in the radiator are clogged up with rust or sediment. If this started after the new thermostat was installed, make sure it was not put in backwards.

I have a 2001 chevy blazer 4wd when driving my vehicle I start to smell as if my car is starting to overheat my gages are showing normal and there are no visible signs of overheating my windshield and


If you smell steam/water/antifreeze inside the vehicle, then most likely you have a heater core issue. If it is more 'overheating' smell outside of the vehicle, it could be overflow container leaking on hot parts, leaking hose, radiator leak, etc.

I have a 98 grand marquis it keeps overheating I changed my radiator,thermostat and intake manifold the car will drive well then start to overheat and once it overheats all the antifreeze will leak out


This could be a broken head gasket, cracked head or block.

Pull the thermostat back out and you should be able to see water flow through the radiator. Make sure the water pump is working.

Run a compression test, alot of times the engine overheats and blows the headgasket, once the spark plugs are removed watch the holes and see if antifreeze shoots out of them while preforming the compression test. More than likey this is the problem. The head can be removed and pressure checked to ensure it has no cracks and then it will need to be resurfaced prior to reinstallation. Hope this helps, let me know.

Overheats and stalls at lights


you should first FIX the leak. if not enough coolant, the sensor won't activate the radiator fan, thus overheating occurs.

Overheating


If the water pump is bad it will be leaking antifreeze and you will see it dripping/running on the ground. Also, when water pumps go bad they will often...but not always...make a noise...sometimes a screeching sound. You did not mention it or that the water pump is leaking so I doubt if it is the problem. The thermostat can easily be the problem and if so is a very low cost item to replace...maybe less than ten bucks including the new gasket. Your boyfriend can install a new one easily. If that does not fix the problem of overheating then there can be many other ways the engine can be overheating. Look for a leak in the radiator. You did not mention it either so maybe that is not it.
Be sure to check all the other engine fluids...low oil...if none showing on the dipstick...can cause the engine to overheat. If you have not changed the oil and filter for the engine since forever then it is possible..but not probable...that sludge has accumulated to the point in the engine that it is overheating and even possibly causing the oil pump in the oil pan area to stop pumping oil as well as it should...but I actually doubt any of these. You could also have low transmission fluid that causes it to overheat and almost being ready to lock up causing the engine to work harder and overheating. There are many many possibilities...but the thermostat is the first thing I would do to fix it and then if it still is a problem start to look at the other areas.
