I've had the same problem, twice!

The solution is 2 fold:
1. Replace the filler cap on the overflow bottle, the genuine RR part works best;
2. Replace the 'O' Rings on the heater matrix under the dash. This last is quite a fiddly job, go to www.rangerovers.net for full details on how to do it. If you take the vehicle to a RR dealer they want to charge huge amounts of money because they replace the entire heater box not just the 'O' rings.

Good luck

My 1999 Chevy Malibu runs hot? It started when it overheated. We changed the thermostat, then water pump, then temp sensor gauge and the temp gauge goes high but only when the heater stops blowing hot...


Air pockets will make the guage do that, and also cause your heat to come and go. Also, a poor radiator, as in rotting, or plugged up, will cause high temperature issues.

Check your cooling fans and cooling system. Drain and flush your system if you have not done so lately. Make sure your radiator is clean.

Even though my truck is not overheating, the temperature gauge will shoot up to hot and the oil light will come on. After a few minutes, the truck will not let me accelerate anymore. If I shut the truck off, it will reset the oil light and the temp gauge and run fine for a while. But eventually, it will do the same thing again. Is it a sensor or computer problem

Chevy Venture Overheating


Almost sounds like the same symptons as my van. Turns out the guage was not the problem. The van was in fact running hot because the electric radiator fans were not kicking in when the engine was hot. I replaced the relay switches for the fans. There are two of these in the fuse panel under the hood. There has been no problem with overheating since
