check for low coolant level make sure coolant system been bleed from air.make radiator full coolant and coolant reservoir on the full cold mark.if all is good the cooling fan relay could be bad or the engine coolant temperature sensor could be faulty.

It hit the temperature rises to over half


How far over half? The idea that 220 is overheating is wrong. But I don't think your gauge shows numbers if I recall.
Check your engine driven cooling fan. Look at the fan clutch front and back. Is it moist and dirty? Oil from the inside may have leaked out. With the engine off of course, spin the fan by hand. Does it spin real freely and continue for a second or two or more after you let go. The clutch may be bad. What can happen then is the motor will spin faster than the fan and at time the fan will barely move and that would not draw air through the radiator cooling fins.
Also make sure the radiator and condensor are free from debris (leaves, dirt, birds, cats, etc.)

Over heating


If this vehicle has the original or old(defective) thermostat, this can cause overheating if its stuck closed(defective). The engine cooling fan has a clutch, If defective the fan will just spin, not fast enough to cool the engine and cause overheating. The radiator is clogged, can cause overheating. A simple check for the radiator is when vehicle has been running awhile, engine is hot, shut the vehicle off and open the hood and carefully reach your hand down between engine fan and radiator and quickly palm the radiator at the top, middle, and bottom and if the warm temp by feel is about the same, most likely the radiator is not the problem. Good luck, best regards.

I have a c200 1996 classic, auto. The front radiator's fan (NOT THE DOUBLE ac FANS) is not spinning fast enough to cool the engine. what is causing the weakness of the radiator's fan spin? I appriciate....


The front fan is a slow spinning ac fan, the rear rad fans are for cooling and also ac at times, if the car is overheating then you may need to check the coolant fan sensor,or the thermostant,

I'm having a cooling system problem I clean out the front of the radiator replaced the termosat and coolant. Also bleed the system an she's still overheating


it could be several things. check your clutch fan and make sure it spins freely, also check water pump by checking coolant movement. the other thing that can cause overheating is a bad head gasket.

I just changed my radiator,thermostate.But it is still overheating.I don't see any smokes,but the gauge for the temperature above normal.What should I do?


The radiator fan may not be blowing.
Idle car with parking brake engaged.
Turn OFF Air Conditioner
Pop open hood and look at the radiator fan.
It is not spinning.
Turn ON Air Conditioner and look at fan.
The fan MUST be spinning.

Replace the "Radiator fan" relay switch.
Check primary fuses and replace as needed.

Suspect hydraulic driven main cooling fan not


the fan speed could be one problem...the other problem could be wth the radiatr cores being blocked..check whether the heat on your radiator is even front top to bottom and on all sides...if it is not, clean the radiator and check for the problem

Overheating


Hi,

Most normal causes for overheating would be:
  • clogged radiator,
  • insufficient coolant level (radiator and reservoir);
  • too soft radiator hoses;
  • defective/leaky water pump (impeller);
  • water pump belt/tensioner;
  • thermostat (mechanical);
  • thermal switch;
  • radiator fan, fan clutch;
  • fan relay;
  • fan fuse.
In some instances, the fan only works in conjunction with the A/C and/or heater and therefore would only work if either of those two are enabled.

Should your particular vehicle be using a radiator fan with clutch, that could also cause the fan blades not to spin even if the fan motor is turning.

Pls check the above mentioned components.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
