One of two things. if it is not leaking either it is the heater core or the thermostat. if it is the thermostat you will most likely have no hot air when you turn on the heat. if it is the heater core you MAY smell antifreeze inside your car when you have the heat on.

My 1996 Cadillac fleetwood had a leacing radiator so I changed it and now it won't stop overheating any tips

Make sure that the thermostat is working properly. It is a good idea to change the thermostat when you change a radiator. How long does it take to overheat? You can leave the radiator cap off, start the car and wait for it to heat up and see if the fluid is pushed into the radiator. If not and the car overheats then you know that the thermostat is bad.

Car overheating

Two things to check:

1. Make sure you do not have an air bubble in your cooling system. Easiest way is to park facing uphill and let the car cool off. Remove the radiator cap, start the car and let run until the thermostat opens. If there are air bubbles in the cooling system the should be forced out. Top off fluid.
2. Are you sure that the cooling fan is running? When the car is getting hot, open the hood and make sure the radiator fan is actually turning.

Overheating and losing coolant fluid

In my parts book it calls for a 16lb cap.
You may have damaged the head gasket before the radiator was replaced. Once an engine overheats, the gasket can be stretched and the head warped. The engine could be burning the coolant.

If the car overheats is it cause the alternater?

No. its either radiator , engine cooling fan, coolant leaks, thremostat, or worst headgasket. Acura are popular for radiator being broken at the seam of the radiator.So check for leaks, now if the cooling fan doesnt come on the yes it will overheat, so the operation has to be monitored a engine cannot go pass 215 F there it can be damage, now the thermostat need to open at a cerain degree . or it will cause overheating and not allow cool fluid to enter the engine area. and the radiator cap must be able to sustain a certain pressure in order to keep the car from overheat, water boils at 110 F so a radiator cap rated for your engine must be specification for every one pound of pressure it increase the boiling point 10 degrees. 210 is fuel control you should not exceed this temperature. radiator are popular for getting plugged internally.

1996 Acura 3.2TL Overheating Problem...

From your description of symtoms it sounds like you have a bad water pump. If the coolant is not circulating properly you will have a heating problem. Sometimes even a new thermostat can stick and cause the engine to overheat. I have seen them fail in as little as a week after they were installed.

Dodge 318 overheating.

HI. It could possibly be the the thermostat is stuck shut. If thats the case when the vehicle warms up it will probably overheat all the time. The best way to tell is buy a new one and change it. They are usualy around $10.00 at any autoparts store. If you change it and it still overheats, it could be the waterpump.

Car overheating

when the car is cold, fill the radiator, start the car. Leave it running with the radiator cap off until the thermostat opens. If it opens the fluid in the radiator will be circulated by the water pump and the electric fan will turn on and cool the radiator. If not, the engine will overheat because either the thermostat is not opening or if the fan doesn't come on, the fan sensor is probably at fault, or both. If there is a noise and fluid leak, the problem could be the water pump. If there is no fluid leak, the problem is likely the thermostat or the fan sensor.
