Engine overheating? Try this procedure:

  • The thermostat can be stuck close. If you feel the upper hose very hot and the lower hose cooler than normal, it may be a stuck thermostat.

  • Make sure the radiator and the overflow bottle are filled to the proper levels.

  • Bleed air from the coolant system:This is best done by running the engine with the radiator cap off until you see when the air bubbles stop coming up.

  • Check the radiator fans: The easiest way is to turn on the cars air conditioner and turn up the A/C fans. Both radiator fans should come on when the A/C starts

  • Make a pressure test by using a pressure testing tool (available at most auto parts stores). Use the pressure shown on your radiator cap. Most cars are 16 PSI or less, so don't exceed that pressure. Replace the radiator cap if it doesn't hold the pressure.

My 99 alero keeps overheating but the coolant is full, and when i shut it off it starts gurgling what is wrong


Is the thermostat opening at 195 degrees ? Does the radiator fan come on at 220 degrees ?
The gurgling noise is usually air or coolant moving around in the system. If the engine is very hot this noise can be normal.

I have a 99' Durango in which my serpentine belt


I would not drive the car at all, except to a shop to have the leak fixed, the car checked out good to see if the overheating is stopped, and if the fix also corrected the serpentine belt problem-sounds like a seized pulley and it may be the water pump pulley. Overheating is one of the major causes of early engine failure. Don't put it off, or you'll be overheating from a major repair bill!

My '99 Tiburon is overheating quite frequently. Coolant is full, but when idling it overheats 3 out of 5 times.. All answers are must appreciated, thanks.


try changing the fan sensor switch on the cylinder head ,also the thermostat ,but again without my head under the bonnet its difficult to diagnose as it coulod be the rad blocked ,quick measure is to turn heater on full on screen and this should cool the engine if its a blocked rad or a jammed thermostat .

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.

'99 Windstar. Overheated and threw belt off.


overheating can damaged cylinder head gasket resulting to low or no engine compression.coolant may enter inside the bore.check compression in all cylinders and traces of coolant on sparkplugs.compression of 100psi is still acceptable.
