    It could be a cause BUT if you remove the radiator cap with the engine running and you see bubbles in the water then most likely you have aleaky head gasket.

2002 Chrysler Concorde 2.7 L overheating, changed, thermostat, water pump, air intake gasket and still overheating


When you changed these components and refilled the cooling system, did you purge the air out of the top of the system by opening the bleeder valve. These engines have coolant in areas higher up in the engine where air can be trapped during refill. Air trapped in the system will cause overheating issues. Otherwise, the only thing you haven't mentioned in the system is the radiator and fan assemblies. They could be suspect, as could a possible blown head gasket.

Engine stalls


The probable reason for engine stalling can be overheating.
The engine can be overheated due to many reasons and their remedies are listed below:
1. Insufficient coolant and water in radiator - Refill the coolant and water in reservoir
2. Radiator fan not working as needed - Loose connections, faulty fan
3. Damaged hoses and pipes - Replace hoses and pipes
4. Clogged pipes - Clean them

My '99 kia sephia overheated, shut off, now wont start


You refilled the water so where did the water you lost go? I suspect it is in the engine combustion chamber. You need to see if you have a blown head gasket and to see why it overheated before trying to start it. Remove all spark plugs and turn if over. If coolant blows out of the cylinders you have a blown head gasket.

My car is overheating. I just replaced thermostat and recently replaced the water pump. I checked for water leaking but dont see any. What could it possibly be


If the thermostat and pump have been replaced, it's most likely the radiator. They corrode after time. Try flushing the antifreeze (not just draining and refilling it, but flush the system with clear water.) Most auto stores, Walmart, etc. carry the flush kit for very little $$. Once it's flushed, refill the system with the correct ratio of antifreeze.

If the problem persists, then it's most likely gunk in the radiator. Auto shops can boil them clean.

Short of all of the above, overheating can also be caused by a cracked cylinder head. If it overheated too bad at any point, it can crack the head and will continue to overheat regularly. Check for antifreeze in the oil. If there "is" antifreeze or water in the oil, the head is most likely shot (and yes, it will still run that way).

Water leaking coolant and overheating


you might need to get a new cap, or you probably have a bad coolant/water ratio. i would recommend getting a coolant system flush
