I think the answer could lie in something which you have not already mentioned. the sender unit usually located on the radiator itself is prone to going and should be replaced when replacing anyt major parts of the rad. if the temperature is still very high even when it should be running cool then yu should maybe look for head gasket leaks which may not be apparent from the outside but an average mechanic should be able to cehck this with a small device. and this should be very cheap unless its gone and then i woulddebate the cost of the car to the cost of maintaining the engine.

Overheating problem


i had something similar once, it ended up being the intake radiator hose, it has a metal coil inside, mine was broken and when you revved the motor it would **** the hose shut and overheat, but under 2000 rpm it was fine .

The heat dont work


SOUNDS LIKE YOU MAY HAVE AIR BLOCK, OR BLOCKED HEATER MATRIX, CHECK FIRST CHECK THE HEIGHT OF THE HEATER MATRIX IN THE CAB , IF ITS HIGHER THAN THE FILLER/EXPANSION TANK. THEN COULD BE AN AIR LOCK, LOOK FOR THE HIGHEST PIPE AND SEE IF THERE IS A BLEED VALVE, IF NOT TAKE BOTH PIPES OFF THE MATRIX FEEDS (TWO PIPES GOING FROM ENGINE BAY TO INSIDE OF CAR, AND FLUSH OUT WITH HOSE TO SEE IF IT IS BLOCKED, AND RECONNECT LOWEST PIPE FIRST AND FILL SYSTYM TILL WATER APPEAR FROM TOP AND RECONNECT RUN MOTOR, AND KEEP TOPIN UP, YOU CAN BY A COOLENT FLUSH SOLUTION TO CLEAN THE SYSTYM OUT

There is a leaking coolant hose, or a perforation of the Heater Matrix.Often a temporary quick fix is to shut off the incoming Hot Coolant and crimp the return to engine hose with a Long Nose snap lock.

Overheating again


The heater stopped working because there was no coolant in it. Your real question is where is the water going.

Have the cooling system pressure tested to be sure you have no leaks. You said you had the radiator flushed, I suspect some of the tubes are blocked, it should be dissassembled and rodded then cooked out. Not just flushed. You problem is in traffic, low speed. The car starts to over heat, it blows the water out of the overflow, the level is down, the heater stops working, then you are out of water in the engine and overheating.


BTW ground the wire that goes to the warning light sensor and be sure it lights the warning light. If htis is the case the sensor is bad. I assume when you turn the key on but before starting the light does work then, correct? That means the bulb is ok, that does not check the sensor.

Good Luck!

Heating problem


Could be a few things. First of all check the coolant level ( when the engine is cold ) If this is OK it's possible that the heater matrix is partially blocked & is only transferring the heat when there is a high flow of coolant or the plastic impeller on the inside of the water pump is loose and isn't circulating the coolant around the engine properly. Hope this helps & good luck !

check and see if you get water/coolant circulates when you have the cap off (only check from cold start) the original water pump came with a plastic impeller and tends to strip on the shaft also check your thermostat before replacing water pump.
