It sounds more like a timing problem, if it only does it above a certain velocity. get your cars timing checked

The thermostat problem caused overheat, because overheat your head gasket maybe broke up and leak,
1. check the tail pipe see if there is steam blow out.
2. check the oil cap,see if there is steam white bubbles

If you got, that probably your gasket broken.

3. put a piece of cardboard in the front of the engine, open the radiator cap. fillup water.

4.start the engine and let's run at least 30 minutes, see whether it overheat or not.

5. check the radiator water, see if it is circling. if it is not circling, probably the water pump doesn't work.

6. you will find out whether leak or not.

The cheapest way to stop engine gasket leaking, if it is not too big, go to parts store get a bottle of good stop leak and try it. sometimes you can stop the leak area. good luck. Frank

SOURCE: 2.3l ranger keeps overheating, been through two radiators already.

Hello Ranger Joe, eight months and two radiators is very uncommon. Question, Have you visually confirmed the leak in the radiators or is the leak near the hose connections? Replacing the radiator, cap, water pump, & the thermostat leaves only two others, the hoses and the engine block/heads. Far fitched will be something or somebody poking holes in the radiator.

There seems to be an air pocket or no antifreeze in engine block. Try this method disconnect upper radiator hose and pour water directly into hose down into engine block until it full. when its filled reconnect hose and fill up radiator. as the vehicle warms up open bleeder valve on the thermostat housing and release air from system. open slowly and BE VERY CAREFUL WATER WILL BE HOT, bleed until you get a steady stream opening and cosing valve. However if all of this don't work. You may have a bad pump. Good Luck

My toyota townace regurgitates the coolant when I turn it off


It is possible that there is an air lock in the cooling system and this is allowing the coolant to hit the hot cylinder walls when the engine is switched off which immediately boils off. It is possible that there is a head gasket problem coming on as well so have a compression test done to check for gasket/ cracked head faults.

92' camry v6 started overheating ,noticed moister and drips from tail pipe. Blown head gasket or ? Also doesent appear to circulate in radiator untill I remove thermostat.Was going to R&R waterpum


A failed thermostat stuck closed will cause overheating. Test that item by boiling it. Nearly all car thermostats will have opened fully at 100 deg C. There may also be a number stamped on it to indicate its opening temp. You can keep track with a kitchen thermometer with a range above boiling.

A blown head gasket will often cause very quick overheating, and you may also see white bubbles like dry ice in the radiator neck. There is a simple test for combustion gases in the coolant, which any competent mech can do for you. The kit can also be bought from Autozone etc.

It is possible that the water pump has corroded away internally and is not circulating water, but if the car has always had antifreeze added, that should not happen. My Camry V6 water pump was still good after 220000 km. If you do get in there, replace the timing belt while you are at it.

A faulty temp sender in the block may also cause overheating, but only because it does not start the radiator fans when it should. You would notice if they were not running when the engine got really hot.

Tailpipe drips don't tell you much, as there is always moisture in the exhaust gas.

My 1998 chevy s10 has a New water pump.new raideator and new thermastat.why is it still running hot?


check for flow, if there is a blockage in the cooling system like heater core, hose collapsed can cause overheating. you have done the usual things for an overheat condition. you might want to have the head gasket/s checked by getting a test done to check for CO in the coolant. it may be a head gasket that needs replacing.

I have a 92 accord LX. I have replaced the Radiator and the hoses, thermostat and fan switch. Car is still reading hot in a matter of 5 to 10 mins of running. Fluids are topped off. I am not sure why it is...


If you have no air in the system, cooling fans & water pump are working properly, and you didn't install the thermostat backwards, you could have a head gasket problem. Also, make sure the gauge is reading correctly, and the engine is actually hot & the gauge is not giving you a false reading.
If you installed the thermostat upside down, it will not open to allow coolant to circulate. This 5-10 minute time frame you give points to a water pump or thermostat.
I hope this helps.

Car keeps overheating. we got new radiator cap from the dealer, still too hot. Then we changed water pump and flushed system, still too hot. Then we called cadillac and spoke with service who told us it...


i have seen several cases where headgasket leak could not be found by compression test check for engine heating up rather quick as 600 degree gas is entering cooing system also die is sold that can be added to cooling system that changes color if mixed with combustion (keep in mind dealers are chomping at the bit to get a couple thousand dollar headgasket job) one other test is a cooling system tester put on the radiator crank the engine if gauge rises with rotation of engine suspect head gasket if not change radiator

Overheating all the time


First, anytime a thermostat is overheated, it's ruined.

Second, if this car has electric fans, are they running when they are supposed to? If not, replace the fan control module, and/or test/replace the fan motors.

When the radiator was replaced, were you certain to purge the radiator and engine of all air before replacing the radiator cap? When you refill an emptied system, you always start the engine and watch the fill level in the radiator, refilling as necessary until you know the thermostat has opened. You need to have the heatrer controls set to full hot as well. Once the radiator is filled, put the cap in place, and fill the reservoir to the level indicated for a hot engine.

Finally, check to make sure the lower radiator hose is not collapsing while driving. While this is difficult to check (because your going down the road), just replace it when you replace the thermostat.

All of this assumes you do not have a cracked head or blown head gasket.

My 99 f150 will read that its hot while idling for a long period but the vehicle performs fine. i just let it run for a few hours and i dont know when it started to read hot but now my check engine light...


You should have the check engine light read, go to autozone and they will stick a reader on it and tell you what codes you have in the computer to cause the check engine light to be on. If your engine is overheating, you run the risk of blowing a headgasket on this engine, because it is an aluminum head. Do you hear a boiling sound while the engine is hot? If so it is overheating, and you need to find out why. Hope this helps, let me know
