2006 Buick overheating. The thermostat is new. Is their a coolant temperature sensor on the 2006 North star engine?

Have you checked to see if the fans are working ? One way to check is by turning your A/C with vehicle running. The fans should run even if the car temperature is cold.
If fan does not work, may want to begin diagnosis on electrical wiring and power supply to fan relay, temperature sensor and fans.

2004 ford thunderbird< radiator fan keep running

Hi Kevin. Since your fan run even when the engine is cold,my advise is to go direct to the temperature sensor,which actually is the main culprit for causing the confusion to the ECU. Since the temperature sensor does not work correct,the message send to the ECU is wrong - like is sending that the engine is hot - the ECU order the fan to start. Also there is another possibility for the fan relay to remain stuck and leave the fan to work constantly.

Good Luck.

Cooling fan relay

If the fan runs all the time, even when the engine is first started up and cold, then you probably have a bad temperature sensor switch. When that sensor fails, it keeps the fan on all the time so the car will never overheat...Chris

How can i turn on the fans for the raidiator for a 1990 lexus ls 400?

Well I would first ask why you would want them on. The computer grounds the fan relay when the fans are needed.
They don't run until the ac is on or the engine reaches 220 degrees.
Sometimes smoke in the radiator is a sign of a leaking head gasket.

Should there be o-rings on my ****** coolant lines going to the radiator on a 1997 grand prix gt 3.8l? I replaced raidiator and now the top line leaks?

I think there are o rings. Did you get the lines tight enough?
I had to really tighten mine on my Buick LeSabre 3.8.

Runs fine when cold, not when warm though

The next time it won't start check the fuel pressure you should have 48-55 psi with key on and engine off.
