2002 dodge caravan sport overheated. It has a new radiator and hoses; we changed the thermostat and replaced the relay and pigtail for the cooling fans after it overheated but we still have the overheating...

Double check the thermostat and make sure the water pump is doing its job. To check the thermostat, simply take it out and reassemble the housing with out the unit. Run the engine and hopefully it will get warm to hot. If not check the pump.

Temperature gauge not working

If you know that the radiator is full of coolant, and the temp gauge is not accurate, the sending unit for the gauge may be faulty.

I have a 2001 Toyota Camry that is overheating. I can smell burnt antifreeze. The radiator is full of antifreeze, but the reserve tank drains quickly. It appears there is no circulation. There is a small...

The overheating could be a stuck thermostat, or a failed water pump among other things. If you are loosing coolant faster than the leak on the hose, you may be burning it out the exhaust pipe. Which would point to engine problems.
If the temp gauge is not showing the engine is hot, and the fan is not coming on, what you are smelling may only be the drip blowing onto the exhaust pipe. The engine may not be running hot.
A mechanic would use an infered thermometer or a scanner to "read" the engine temp to verify it is overheating.
There is a chance the system is not actually full and has air pockets in it which would need to be bled out.

After motor has cooled down fill radiator with water till full, look make sure serpentine belt not broke, start engine run about 5 minutes, turn off, let sit 3 minutes, start engine look at temperture gauge is it over half way of gauge, Do you have a fan blade driven by water pump or electric fans?

The temp gauge is showing that our 2004 Avalanche is overheating and we have replaced the water pump, thermastat and coolant senor and it still shows to be overheating....what else is there to do?

Is the radiator clean and flowing coolant? Why was the water pump replaced? What was the condition of the old coolant? If the engine is HOT the air coming through the radiator should also be HOT, if its not, the radiator has blockage and will need to be removed and cleaned.

Possible overheating, 2004 pontiac montana

Its definitly a bad reading, you would know if your vehicle is overheating, you can usually smell it right away.I would say its your temperature gauge sending unit is defective, check the wires to see if they are well connected or broken. ask a backyard mechanic for assistance.

Dash Temp Gauge reading extremely hot

You need to pressure test the cooling system. If it holds pressure, I would look at replacing the water temp. sensor. If it doesn't hold pressure, you have a coolant leak going on. If you don't see it dripping on the ground or inside the car, I would be suspecting head gasket problem.
