Could be the fan(make sure it's working)If not it could be the tempature sensor,bad fan motor,or fuse.

Or worst case a blown head gasket,cracked head or block
(but I would check for Fan issues first).

It sounds like you have changed everthing already. It could be an airpocket in the cooling system.

    if you're getting heat while driving, and then it goes cold while sitting. i feel like its an air pocket.You might have a bleeder screw on the thermostat housing, but if not try this. with the car cold remove the upper radiator hose, and tie it up with a string about 4" above the motor and start the car, allow it to idle and warm up. while its idling add coolant until you get some out the upper radiator hose. you should have heat while idling.

2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo overheating. replaced fan relay and thermostat, and its still overheating

suggest that you rent a pressure tester from auto zone or advance auto and preform a pressure test on your cooling system. follow the instructions on the test of pressure to your cooling system,also check for coolant leaks onto the ground from radiator area. may be bad water pump,broken hose,heater hose,upper radiator,lower radiator,or a bad radiator itself. a simple pressure tester will reveal the coolant leak. but make sure to follow the instructions with the pressure tester,as you can damage your coolant system otherwise. thank you for choosing

1994 v6 Firebird I have overheating issues recently, replaced hoses, cooling fan and radiator. It seems to be circulating from water pump. I do not know which way to turn now, no leaks that I see only when...

Water pump might not be flowing fast enough. Be sure fans actually turn on instead of just sitting there. Change oil. You could have something in the motor causing excessive heat. Piston friction or cam problems ect. Try a synthetic oil.

I have an 1997 isuzu trooper that is overheating, have had water pump, thermostat, radiator cap, allmost everything to do with the water system replaced, except the radiator...there is no water leaks that...

Radiator can't handle the load.. Just make sure the fans are pulling air... One way to see if the radiator is at fault is to try turning the heater on high... If the temps stay cooler the radiator has had it. Turning the heater on in emergency is good to know so I hope this helps.

Wish the best with the chemo... will be praying for her.

Nissan Sentra 2001 - Overheating but no hot air

It could be just air in the system, or it could be the heater matrix just by your feet, fitted central dash, check to see if the two water pipes that go into the car from the engine compartment are hot if there is only one that is then thats your problem, but if they are both cold the problem is more to do with where the water is coming from, please let me know how you get on
