It should be located on the block if you are looking for the sensor, follow large water lines from radiator and the sensor closest to water flow should be the one. Thermostat should be under bowl shaped adapter at the end of the upper hose at the opposite end of the radiator.

I replaced the temp coolant sensor thermostat and radiator and the tep still goes up to 212 to 225 is this normal


It depends on the ambient air temperature and whether or not the AC is being used. Once the thermostat opens the engine coolant temperature can run from 210-230 degrees.So your good.

Bad relay sensor in chev Montana van coolest system


If its ever been run without coolant or never had the coolant renewed then my guess is the rad is starting to block up. Its very difficult to effectively clean them, replacement is best. Run the engine until its warmed up, then switch off and feel the rad for even heat across the rad and gradually reduced heat top to bottom. If this doesn't give an answer you may need a good home mechanic / DIY to help you track it down. What ever you do don't run without a thermostat because the water will go around too fast to be cooled by the rad.

WHAT DOES A COOLANT SENSOR LIGHT COST?


98 olds?
a bad lamp is a dead lamp , not stuck on.
so your input is false.
no the lamp does nothing at all but REPORT over heated.
please say the exact name of lamp, on the cluster.
and ask why it is stuck on.
the operators guide, says what, get it serviced.
diy persons, know it either telling the truth or fibbing
we use a meter to check engine heat if it is ok the lamp fibbing
the lamp fibs when the overheat sensor is bad
or the wire to it falls off and hits the body metal.

Vauxhall astra drives for about 5miles then goes into limp mode,rev counter drops and radiator warning light appears along with the spanner in the engine warning. leave for an hour then it drives ok for...


Unless you want to risk very expensive engine damage for what is likely to be a relatively simple and cheap repair, then do not drive the car again until you have fixed the fault.

Likely causes are as follows:-

1. A failed temperature sender. You haven't stated the year, model and engine of your Astra, but on most model it's on the side of the radiator. An easy DIY job, but on some versions the sensor replacement means you must partially drain down the coolant. Total cost around £20 for the part and replacement coolant, around £80 if done professionally in London. Costs are lower away from the South East and major UK cities.

2. A failed water pump. If it's not circulating coolant then the engine overheats. If the pump needs replacing then get the timing belt replaced at the same time as it has to be removed anyway to do the job. One of those jobs where the parts bill is relatively low but the labour charges are fairly high: total cost typically around £300 in London.

3. Blocked coolant channels in the radiator/engine block. This is highly likely if you have just been using water as it causes corrosion. Proper coolant mix not only acts as an antifreeze, but prevents corrosion and enhances the ability of the coolant to carry away waste heat. Requires a drain down, back flush, and refill with the correct coolant mixture. Typical cost around £130 in London.

4. A failed engine cooling fan. Note that if the temperature sensor has failed and it can either send false overheat signals to the engine management system to cause your problem, or it can totally fail and cause genuine overheating by failing to activate the cooling fan. If the fan does not activate when the engine starts getting hot , and the sensor has been replaced, then the fan (or an electrical connection to it) has failed. An easy DIY job, can cost under £30 DIY if you buy a used fan from a breaker's yard, or around £150 if you use new parts and get the job done professionally.

Whatever you choose to do, overheating also commonly causes cylinder head gaskets to fail. Make sure that you get a repair garage to perform a coolant test before anything else. This will instantly determine whether the head gasket has failed. It's an expensive job and starts exactly as for a timing belt/water pump renewal, but then goes further in having the cylinder head removed and then it must be checked for crack/distortion which can add a fair bit or an enormous amount to the job, depending upon what's found and whether a replacement cylinder head is required or just refacing of the existing one. With head gasket replacement it's a false economy not to replace the timing belt and water pump at the same time.even if they seem fine. Getting the coolant test will help you decide whether repairs are worthwhile, as they can cost more than the car is worth.

This list is not exhaustive, but all of the work is within the scope of a competent home mechanic (though if the cylinder head needs attention that part must be sent to an engineering shop).

My 99 alero v6 is over heating not leaking ight mite be hoses or thermostat . or head gasket but when it overb heats the smoke comes from the top of the engine


REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.IF CAR OVER HEATING WHILE IN MOTION.MORE LIKELY ITS THE THERMOSTAT,LOW COOLANT IN RADIATOR OR COOLANT SYSTEM,BAD WATER PUMP,WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE IS LEAKING, WATER PUMP NEEDS REPLACING.CHECK ENGINE OIL,IF OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE YOU HAVE LEAKING HEAD GASKET.IF CAR IN PARK AND OVER HEATS WHILE IN A LONG TRAFFIC LINE OR.BANK DRIVE THROUGH COOLANT FAN NOT TURNING ON, BECAUSE THE ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR FAULTY.CODE SCAN CAR FOR FAULTY COOLANT FAN RELAY OR FAULTY PCM. CHECK COOLANT FAN FUSE, AND HOT WIRE THE COOLANT FAN TO MAKE SURE ITS WORKING.IF COOLANT FAN DONT WORK WHEN HOT WIRED. COOLANT FAN NEEDS REPLACING. REPLACE BOTH RADIATOR HOSES, REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.BUY NEW COOLANT ADD 50/50 WATER AND COOLANT.IF ENGINE OIL HAS ANTIFREEZE IN IT.REPLACE ENGINE OIL AND OIL FILTER TO KEEP FROM LOCKING UP THE ENGINE.GET CAR FIX.DONT KEEP DRIVING IF IT KEEP OVER HEATING,ENGINE DAMAGE WILL OCCUR.I HOPE INFORMATION I GAVE YOU WILL FIX PROBLEM.PROBLEM COULD BE LEAKING RADIATOR HOSES BUT CHANGE THERMOSTAT THATS FIRST THING I WOULD CHANGE BECAUSE IF IT CLOSED, ENGINE WILL OVER HEAT AND CRACK CYLINDER HEAD OR CRACK PISTON, COOLANT NEED TO CIRCULATE THROUGH THE ENGINE TO TAKE AWAY THE HEAT FROM ENGINE.

My 2006 Grand Prix has been over heating for several months now. We've replaced the Thermostat, the Water Pump, and drained/flushed the coolant. We've noticed that the coolant fans are not coming on at...


It should be on the front of the engine screwed into the intake near the exhaust crossover. Look down under the thermostat. It has a metalic paper heat shield around it.

My '94 Honda Accord is overheating. The thermostat and sensor have been replaced, radiator is okay, fans are both working, so what might the problem be?


if your sure there is no air pocket hiding in the coolant system,pull the thermostat back out so the coolant doesn't have to reach 195 degrees before letting the coolant flow thru engine,and see if it still over heats,it might be an air pocket or head gasket,doing this will tell you exactly.

94 cutlass supreme is overheating,all fluids are fine. I did have someone tell me i need 3 motor mounts replaced. could this be an issue of the car overheating?


Over heating can be caused by a faulty thermostat and or weak water pump and dirty radiator and old antifreeze or the radiator fan now working when at idle but should not over heat when driving. Service the cooling system if it has never been serviced before. Replace the thermostat, buy some radiator flush to clean out the radiator and heater core. Just follow the instruction and replace the antifreeze and make sure it's a 50/50 mix water/antifreeze. If you not sure how to mix it 50/50 you can buy them 50/50 premixed. Water boils at 100'C so you need antifreeze mixed with it but antifreeze does not have the same heat transfer as water so you cannot run 100% antifreeze cause it does not transfer heat fast enough and you over heat. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, Be glad to help, once you service the cooling system and your still over heating, then we look at the water pump.

Coolant doesn't heat up!


the temp sensor just tells you the temp of the coolant and it controlls the coolant fan to turn on and off at a certain temperature........have you check for coolant leeaks???
