I have to agree with hotrodtod also to verify if it a/c clutch turn on the defroster and see if the scraping sound is still there also you can raise the hood and visible look and a/c compressor see if it is making racket if not look at your fan and see if it is turning or trying to turn but be careful fan can start turning at any time
let me know if it is not one of them i will help you all i can

2002 Buick Century continue to run hot although I have replaced the thermastat and the radiator and checked anifreeze levels - what's else could be wrong?

Turn your a/c on, both fans will start. The temperature switch is located on the intake behind the thermostat housing, but it isn't near as hard to replace.

2003 ford mustang, overheating, check engine light code of P1285 had checked and they said coolant fine...they want to put on a new thermostat and then said if that does not work maybe a new engine

This problem could be fixed by a new thermostat, however if this does not fix it then you may need a new head gasket or some deeper motor work ( which is why they want to do a new engine) most shops these days do not want to get onto motor work, the reason being is, it is expensive and timely, and often makes the shop "resposible" for every little problem that happens to the engine afterwards which isn't worth the trouble.

My honda civic 1999 sir overheats when I turn on the air con.

If your car is getting Overheat when you turn the air conditioner On, it means that you need to repair your compressor or it will need to be replaced.

It could also be that if your car has a 2nd or separate radiator fan that should come on when the car is either hot OR when the A/C is on - perhaps it is NOT coming on and thus your car overheats. If your car does have a 2nd fan, check to see if it is coming on when you turn on your air conditioner.

Also, I would check that your radiator fan is on (even if it has only one electric fan) when the car temperature is getting near the HOT zone. At some point, the fan should come on to help circulate the air through the radiator vents and help cool the coolant (water) in the radiator.

In short, make sure your fan(s) are working okay. If not, that could be causing your car to overheat too.

Tell us news (remember rated this).

Cooling system

You still have air trapped in your cooling system, turn the heat to full and remove the radiator cap with engine running, Make sure you remove the radiator cap before you start the engine, once the engine has reached it's operating temperature and there is heat coming from the vents. Top off radiator till full and place the radiator cap back on with engine still running only on the first click, make sure the coolant over flow tank is at proper level and go for a test drive with the heat still on hottest setting. (roll the windows down).
Ofter test drive 5 min to 10min, with engine still running close off the radiator cap to the second click. Tank note that the cap may be to hot so use a rag and caution not to burn your self.
This should get any air in the cooling system out, any air in the system may cause the system to burst since the air will try to escape any week spot. That's why we only close the radiator cap to the first click to prevent any additional pressure that can cause a leak from the hot air.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

Leaking anti freeze and metal scraping sound coming from front passenger side of car. just replaced radiator 4 months ago. no white smoke out of tailpipe

It sounds like you need a water pump. When the bushing in the water pump shaft wears out it makes a horrible grinding marbles together kind of sound and coolant leaks past the shaft seal.

I got a 99 sentra keeps over heating just recently changed thermosat and flushed raditor and i hear a whistling noise near firewall on the passanger side

there is probably air in the heater core,if you are fairly familiar with your car simply run the car 20 minutes with the radiator cap removed make sure to keep an eye on it a little spillage is normal do not remove the radiator cap when hot, turn the heat on high , be prepared to fill radiator with coolant as it will probably need some all if you are not familiar with your car have a certified tech perform this procedure for you

How do you change the thermostat & refill the coolant on a 2005 chevy silverado? 5.3 liter engine.

Locate the thermostat. The thermostat is in a metal housing at the end of the radiator hose where it connects to the engine.

Drain enough coolant to make the water level below the the thermostat level so that the coolant doesn't spill everywhere...

Remove the thermostat:
The housing is held down by two bolts.
Remove the bolts, remove the thermostat and scrape the gasket and sealant from the housing and the manifold.

When replacing, use Permatex #2 - non-hardening gasket sealant.

Replenish the radiator with 50/50 coolant/water mixture (re-use what you took out; don't pour down drain or on grass - kills vegetation).

Remove radiator cap and let engine warm up (look for leaks) to allow trapped air in the cooling system to escape.
Note: there may be some burping valves near the thermostat. If obvious, open them to allow air to escape.

Hope this helps!

My 1999 Saturn does the exact same thing

The radiator fan is not spinning. Car overheats when idling with no air flowing through the radiator fins.

When you are driving, there is enough air flowing through the radiator fins to keep the Saturn cool.

1. Check the radiator fan (cooling fan) fuse.
2. Check the radiator fan electrical connector. It may have vibrated loose.
3. *sigh* .. replace fan motor....

If you need instructions on how to replace fan motor , please comment.
Just don't let the fan scrape against the radiator when you are removing / rfeplacing the motor.

Hope this helps ... and it's just a fuse.
