    doesn't overheat when idling or driving around town. times that it has was when driving 70 down the interstate after a little while. also it makes a loud roar that is worse when cold or when it overheats

The aurora's are self bleeding check the small hose going the top of your coolant bottle and see if you have coolant flow. If you do not there is a blockage there. You can try to use compressed air to clear this work well for me. You should see air bubbling in bottle when clear. When clear fill start engine bring temp up so stat open then fill as needed then put cap on let idle for a few minutes then let cool. Check coolant level after an hour add if needed

Feel of the top hose, if it's soft when the car is running and at operating temperature then it's probably air in the system, not allowing the pump to pick up the antifreeze. To get the air out let the car cool completely (like overnight) then fill the reservoir, leave the cap off and run the car until it comes up to normal operating temp. (watch to see you keep enough antifreeze so the tank doesn't go empty.
My 97 Aurora did the same thing and this fixed it.

I have a 1988 chevy s10 4 cylinder. Its over heating off and on for the last week or 2. I just replaced the thermostat and flushed my radiator but its still overheating


Drive the vehicle until operating temp. Turn vehicle off and CAREFULLY put hand between engine and radiator. If you feel any cool spots on your hand on the radiator side, you have blockage and are only using a fraction of the radiator to cool with. This is most likely the issue. But here is a list of what I would do first. Drain fluid. Remove thermostat. Install thermostat housing without thermostat. Run a flush through engine following instructions for deep cleaning. Drain . remove hoses. Run water through block. Make sure water can pass through. Replace thermostat. Run hose through radiator. Replace all hoses fill it back up and check again. Also replace hoses if they are old or weak. If the problem occurs going up hills but seems OK on flat ground I would blame the radiator.

1997 cutless supreme keeps overheating, I've changed waterpump,thermostat,changed sensor and flushed out the radiator,I'm asking who knows


I've had same problem before. Replace the radiator cap. That's all it took. IF still overheats/looses coolant, go to a higher pressure cap. Original isn't strong enough to hold the pressure.

Replaced radiator and tstat still over heating, water pump a little over a month old


my used 4 cyl jeep radiator would only drain 1/2 of the fluid. jumped up and down on bumper and this dislodged the sludge in radiator and/or engine. flushed twice, then now notice low temp reading on gauge (out of specs) due to a low temp thermostat that someone installed due to previous over heating (sludge). Replace with factor spec thermostat and everything is fine.

2002 Honda Civic...The car is overheating randomly. Replaced the thermostat,and fan relays. Car runs fine and then randomly overheats with gauge going way up and then sometimes coming down.Overheating and...


RADIATOR COOLING FAN NOT RUNNING COULD BE BAD ENGINE.COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR IS FAULTY IF COOLING FAN IS NOT TURNING ON AT SET TEMPERATURE OF 196 TO 203 DEGRESS.CHECK SEE COOLING FAN RUNNING WHEN ENGINE RUNNING HOT.IF YES FLUSH RADIATOR , FLUSH ENGINE BLOCK, HEATER CORE,REPLACE RADIATOR CAP.MAKE SURE YOU HAVE 50/50 ANTIFREEZE AND WATER IN THE COOLANT SYSTEM.CHECK WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE IF LEAKING REPLACE WATER PUMP. IF COOLANT FAN DONT TURN ON 196 TO 203 DEGREES, YOU HAVE FAULTY COOLING FAN,SHORT IN FAN WIRING OR ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR FAULTY.IGNITION TIMING WILL CAUSE ENGINE TO OVER HEAT.

I have an 1997 chevy camro rs w a 134000 miles that is overheating the engine an water pump has been replaced an i stil cant find what is causing it to overheat


It could be the thermostat not opening and closing as it should. Or it could be a bad overflow/radiator cap. If the cap starts to go bad, it won't hold pressure and this will cause overheating. Good Luck. There are other major issues possible, but hopefully it's not. Start the engine cold and as the engine warms you should feel the thermostat open and water flowing as you hold the radiator hose, just be careful around moving fans.

My 1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass is overheating.. I have replaced the water pump, Thermostat, and had the coolant flushed.. still overheating... What could it be?


Have you had the radiator cap pressure checked? Small part...big function...Are you sure the thermostat is in the open position when installed? Hope this helps.

Flush radiator cause wasnt getting any heat put antifreeze still not getting any heat is ther any way to get air out of the system


park up hill on jack stands & leave radiator cap loose to burp air out. Go through cool to warm cycle where thermostat opens (upper hose will be hot).

Or, go to shop with evac/fill equipment & let them do flush & fill ($80).
