First, need to check the cars thermostat, it may be that you need to change this to a lesser high side temp.instead of a 185* go with a 165* or similar one, secondly make sure the system is circulating properly and all cooling parts, (fans, belts, shrouds etc ) are working good.I am assuming that these speeds are highway numbers close to or near normal.. 100km/hr is 60mph so 110km/hr is around 65mph so at hiway speeds the system should be ok..unless theres a bad gasket somewhere, usually a head gasket because thats where the engine pressure is the easy test is to take your radiator overflow hose lose at the reservoir and dunk the end in a cup of water with the engine running, look for consistent air bubbles in the water this translates to engine pressure entering the cooling area and forcing the coolant out, thus reducing the capability of the system to cool properly..thus it calls for an upper engine gasket replacement, and this is time takes me a couple of days to do.good luck

SOURCE: When I drive my Mazda

Does your Mazda have a standard trans (clutch), or automatic.
If it's automatic, the tranny might be slipping, and if it's a standard shift the clutch may be slipping. Does the actual driving speed (not engine rpm's) seem to stay the same when this happens? If you are still traveling at the same speed even though the engine speeds up, it's your tranny or clutch. I don't think the timing belt and tensioner have anything to do with this. countrycurt0

SOURCE: Would like to talk with a car repair guru, not a computer guru

i think you have a combonation of problems here. most of it lead to needing a tune up .
just to get an understanding what is going on in your engine . i would bet to say that your enagine light is on . and probily an engine misfire code.
when the engine misfires somtimes it wil activate your knock sensor and ****** the timing thus raising your engine temp. if you havent flushed your coolant system yet you should. new plugs and wires and clean your throttle body.
good luck

SOURCE: 1992 325is BMW radiator/overheating problem

if it is just a hose or tube that is easy to change, do it yourself to save you from spending a lot of money on install. you can pick the part up from auto zone, pepboys, napa etc.... if it looks to hard for you to do yourself, get the haynes manual for that year car, they sell that in those to, they have step by step instructions on how to repalce almost everything on the car, and where the locations are of other things that may need replacing also... that should help you out a lot... if you have any problem repost or email me and i will help you out... take care..

SOURCE: 2002 dodge 1500 Changed radiator, thermostat, and hoses. No heat

Why was radiator replaced?Did it have heat before ? If it was plugged, the heater core may also be plugged. Try flushing it with a water hose in both directions. I dont know why the botton radiator hose would be cold, the radiator should be a uniform temp and the air coming through the radiator should be HOT, when the engine is at operating temp. What condition was the old coolant? if it was rusty, the water pump may have lower flow than normal.

Hello Joe,
If the engine has over heated it may have blown the head gasket, you say the engine noise changed and you have power loss, get a mechanic to check it and try not to drive it

Having trouble with my kia carnival over heating, now my heaters in car are no longer working, what could this mean?

my kia carnival 2002 keeps less heating when the car is in slow speed & when it is fast at 100 KM/H the RPM comes down, there is gear oil at Max & engine oil at max and water is getting low. with this i replaced thermostat, have had radiator pressure tested and was fine, radiator water is full but coolant box is getting empty whilst driving the distance of 100 kms. also when it begins to little overheat or just taking off the speed there is a loud ascending rattling noise which seems to come from the under right side of engine But when it catches the speed everything is smooth. & then you park for an hour the coolant tank is empty.or at low. please tell me what to do.
