SOURCE: 97 chrysler lhs overheats

Head gaskets don't cause overheating Usually they are a result of overheating. If the headgasket is bad one wil get leaking into the cylinders of coolant,which wil show up as milky oil.Like some one else stated ; have the radiator rodded out,(cleaned and fluashed).

When the car is running does the top of the radiator get hot? if so your thermostat is opening as it should. if the radiator remains stubbornly cool then your diagnosis of a bad thermostat is probably right. Have you tried running the car from cold with the coolant cap off. If the water is agitated it could be that you have a blown head gasket and that hot engine gases are heating the coolant.
As to where you thermostat is: follow the hose from the top of the radiator back to the engine block. The thermostat is housed (recessed) in the engine block itself at the base of the angled pipe to which the radiator hose is attached. You will need to drain the coolant and remove the fasteners retaining this pipe to the engine to gain access to the thermostat. Take care not to damage the gasket as you may have to reuse it. Check you old thermostat by putting it into a pan of boiling water. If it opens wide and then closes again when cold it is OK.

When i start my kia with out the radiator cap is ok..but when i put the cap on it overheats

can you see a constant supply of bubbles coming out of the coolant when you have the cap off? If so than you probably have a bad head gasket. This would allow exhaust gas to enter the coolant which builds up enough to cause an air pocket which will stop the flow of coolant.

I changed the radiator in my 2005 kia amanti an filled with fluid an it's still running hot.

Could be bad thermostat, bad hose collapsing, bad fan or shroud, leaking head gasket, timing too advanced, bad waterpump, electric fan thermostat switch, dirty cooling system, others.

Kia 2700 overheating

could be a number of things, 1. water pump not working 2. Thermostat stuck (replace if its boiled) 3. air lock in system. 4. Head gasket. 5. cracked head/block. I presume you have checked that you belt is not broken, are there any signs of leaking around the waterpump? if there are, change the pump, If the engine has overheated, change the thermostat. these are the most common things, other than these 2 it is going to take further examination for cylinder head problems or blocked water ways. Go for the thermostat first, its probably the cheapest part to replace, and see if that cures your problem.

Overheating changed thermostat done bleeding new coolant new hoses still overheats waterpump is good no blockage

if you've flushed the system, and made all those changes, ( be sure the thermostat is placed spring towards the motor) you may have a head gasket or warped head issue

Kia spectra 2000, what causes over heating?

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Few things why the car overheats, here are the following:

- Weak radiator blower motor
- Clogged radiator
- Cracked head or head gasket
- Faulty water pump (coolant will not circulate if it's faulty)
- Worn out radiator hoses
- Coolant reservoir overfill (coolant overflows)

You will need to have them replaced to resolve the problem. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I have a 2004 Kia Sedona I have replaced the theromostat the fans are comeing on but still overheats I havent had any problems untill yesterday

After replaceing the thermostat,dont fill the radiator or top it off, untill the engine warms up and the thermostate opens, so the system will circulate.From the top, through the radiator, and into the waterpump inlet. And back to the heads, and the intake, cooling and purgining out all the air,or there will be an air pocket. And the motor will over heat,from lack of or the proper amount of coolant, and not enough circulation,for cooling.
