I had the same overheating problem in my jeep ! My problem was finaly found out to be the clutch in my fan its a different kind of clutch system it work as this. When your jeep gets warmer the tighter your fan clutch gets .While cool your fan moves slowly. now to test your clutch just warm up your jeep and rev it up a bit if your fan dose not pick up speed then it is sliping.What will come out of this is that you fan will the seez and run full all the time. if you jeep dose not overheat wile moving then it is not your thermo stat period.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Appreciate the direct "Ask me".

To your overheating concern, a few ides you could consider/explore:

  • radiator fan/fan motor. Some models uses a silica oil clutch while others require that the A/C or heater be turned on otherwise the radiator fan will not engage;
  • clogged radiator;
  • too little antifreeze, too much water in the coolant mix;
  • too soft radiator hoses;
  • the thermostat was installed in reverse or out of position.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Pls be informed that due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful would be detrimental to my status. Should this solution not address your concern, it would be appreciated if you could just not rate it at all. Cheers.

After replacing the thermostat, you must bleed the air from the cooling system.

To bleed air from the 2.2L and 2.5L engines, remove the plug or sensor on the top of the thermostat housing. Fill the radiator with coolant until the coolant comes out the hole. Since the plug is made out of steel and the thermostat housing is aluminum, it is a good idea to apply an anti-seizing compound or Teflon® tape on the plug threads prior to installation. Install the plug and continue to fill the radiator. This will vent all trapped air from the engine.

Any trapped air in the heating system will have to be displaced by coolant. Once the cooling system is filled, with the radiator cap off, turn of the heater at it's highest setting. Start the engine and allow it to reach operating temp. You should see a drop in the coolant level as the air in the heating system is displaced by coolant. Add coolant to the proper level and replace the radiator cap.

Keep a close eye on the coolant level for at least the next couple of weeks. The cooling system is a "closed" system. Any significant decrease in coolant level indicates a problem.

If you have any questions, let me know.

Please take the time to rate this solution.

Drive safe and be warm.

sounds like you have a blown head gasket.
be sure engine is cold, open water tank be sure it is full than start car with tank open see if you see bubbles in the tank. If so possible head gasket blown.

Have you shop perform a "leakdown test." You probably have a bad head gasket )or a leak in the gasket).

Hello I have a 1989 chevy c1500 truck and when I turn the engine light does not but when heated turns on and you change the alternator and air pump and thought you might be the thermostat that all you have...


I"m not sure what the problem is, this sounds like the engine light is coming on because its overheating and you replaced the airpump and alternator and now you thinks it is the thermostat. if this is correct then yes replace the thermostat and also check the fan clutch, when engine is hot the fan should not spin freely. and last are you sure the engine light is on due to it overheating, if it is due to overheating then check fan clutch and replace the thermostant

What causes my 2004 chevy trailblazer to overheat? I got the radiator replaced, due to a crack across the top from overheating?..I got the water pump and thermostat replaced too..Also the motor stalls


Well kinda sounds like it has overheated quite a few times, so unfortuanetly it's heads are probably warped and head gskts are blown causing compression from cylinders to enter cooling system which causes high pressure in cooling system which in turn blows coolant out and end result...your enj. probably needs replacing ! Sorry for the Bad news

I just reapir the overheating problem on my 2001 chevy silverado 5.3 2wd. I am still overheating...it is full of coolant...reservour is still at the fill line with GM dexcool coolant. The problem to begin...


If it overheated i would replace the thermostant and gasket, also make sure its full of coolant, after replacing the thermostat you may have air in system so let it run until stat opens it may boil over a little until stat opens then it will **** coolant into block when that happens fill with coolant, you will need to let it idle for a while before new stat opens, hope this helps, good luck, i think the stat went bad the first time it overheated.

89 chevy silverado overheating


The oil pump will not cause it to overheat. If all you have replaced was done correctly I would suspect a head gasket failure.
