SOURCE: 1998 cavalier heats up when idleing. Fan comes on but still heats

Hello senior, whenever the coolant system is opened up there's a possibility you could get air in your system, only way to get it out is by using the bleeder valve, check the coolant temperature sensor it may not be working properly, it tell's the cooling fan when to kick on and off, the condition of the drive belt is also another factor, along with the tensioner and tensioner pulley. it sounds like a problem with the water pump, the cooling fan, or air in your cooling system, to get a good inspection of the water pump fin's you have to remove it.

SOURCE: the crown victoria keeps running hot and need to

Before you get into this involved job I have a few suggestions. First is the pump leaking causing the system to lose coolant. Grab the fan and try to move it from side to side to see if there is play. Next when was the last time the thermostat was changed out. The thermostat can be stuck in a way as to restrict water flow. Another cause of over heating is a clogged radiator. Older cars can have a slug build up in the radiator core causing a significant cooling lose.
Water pumps on a Crown Vic is located on the front of the engine behind the fan. You should really get a service manual as there are a lot of steps in this job that must be done correctly to avoid future problems.
You start by draining the entire cooling system by opening up the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator. This antifreeze must be disposed of properly by taking it to a repair shop for pick up. Next remove the fan guard followed by disconnecting all the belts. Some people remove the radiator to gain working room. before removing the radiator disconnect the lower hose and the upper hose to the engine. The transmission oil cooling lines are next. Now remove all the bolts holding the radiator in place. As you can see this is not a job for a novas. If you are not mechanically inclined this could be a nightmare of a job.

Ihave a 99 vw passat 1.8 ,replaced head timing belt,gear,and cover,new water pump,thermostat,and overheats very quickly.it has 2 fans,1 electric the other is driven by beltsand is with fan clutch,clut


First, Ronald is an IDIOT! DO NOT power wash the engine EVER! If the engine is really hot and you spray ice cold water on it can crack the head instantly! Also, everyone knows' water and electricity don't mix! the ignition control module is $300. A little water on that and its gone!
If your car is overheating, you may need a water pump! The one you got, may have been bad! The rule is, as soon as a car overheats, the thermostat MUST be changed! A simple test would be to remove the thermostat and close it back up! A few dollars for the gasket is all you will spend! Try and run the car without it and see if it still gets hot! If it still gets hot, check the water in the radiator or resivor to see if the water is also hot. If its hot then the water pump is working and you need to check the fans! You can run a power wire to the fan to make sure they are working. There are relays for those also! If they are not turning on, that is most likely your problem! I rebuild VW's for a living!

1989 GMC running hot have replaced radiator, thermostat,water pump,Temp sensor, intake taken off ports cleaned out. No air pockets, what am I missing


I had a 1987 oldmobile that had that problem. It turned out that the fan clutch thermostat had gone bad and would not engage when the engine heated up. The fan clutch was part of the fan. I replaced it and solved the problem.

2002 JEEP LIBERTY LIMITED RUNS HOT. CHANGED THEMOSTAT, RADIATOR FLUSHED STILL RUNS HOT. CHANGED WATER PUMP, OLD ONE WASN'T BAD. WHAT NEXT?


If your fan is not fixed mount but free spinning, the clutch on the mounting center of the fan is slipping too much, in other words there is not enough fan rotation at higher RPM,s

Ive got a 323ci bmw on a 2000 plate with 23000 overheatin


repl temp sensor. run 12v to motor, does it run? could be resistors, they're hidden all over the car, thanks to the ******* engineers that put this piece of **** together. or the fan blades could be blocked.

radiator clogged, did someone put stop-leak in it? Remove thermostat drill two 3/16" holes in it 180degress apart, install 12 degree cooler thermostat.

check to see if fan clutch is working properly.
