Have your thermostat checked or remove it yourself car can run without it if it improves replace it with a new one these do sometimes get stuck ,if you do replace it always add antifreez to your water this also helps to keep your water and water jackets clean.

have the water pump checked out, i had a van that did the same thing and founf i had a bad water pump it fixed the problem.also check the blower motor to make sure its working right by tapping on it while you have the car running. the car will survive dont worry its going to be one of those two things im pretty sure.

First when vehicle is cold like in the morning check and make sure that the vehicle has enough coolant/ antifreeze in radiator and reservoir. If coolant is need use a 50/50 mixture of water and antifreeze. You will need some time to do this let car run at idle until the temp guage is in the middle NOT+ normal operating temperature. At this point if the thermostat should be in the open position. Let vehicle run and check to make sure that radiator fan comes on. This should come on when guage is about midway/half way. If temperature rises above half going to h/hot and fan doesn't come on, you either have a BAD FAN BAD FAN SWITCH BAD FAN RELAY OR BLOWN FAN SWITCH FUSE. You will need to check all of the following I will help if its needed. If fan comes on and doesn't go off and vehicle continues to get hot even with fan running. Feel radiator hoses and see if the lower radiator hose is cool/cold. If it is you have thermostat that stuck closed. Replace thermostat and fix problem. If all the above is good and vehicle continues to over heat. THE BAD NEW IS THAT YOU MAY HAVE A BLOWN HEAD GASKET /CRACKED HEAD /BROKEN WATER JACKET. Basically you will need a HEAD JOB at least a head gasket. ONe tell tail sign of this is oil looking like milkshake/chocolate milk-a creamish while residue in oil or antifreeze. Contact if you need hel0p. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Sounds like you have an air pocket in the cooling system. Take the radiator cap off the radiator(not when engine is hot) and then start the car. As air moves through the lines you will see the antifreeze level go down. Let it run and pour coolant into the radiator until it stays full. then put on the radiator cap and fill the overflow tank to the right level and I hope that fixes your problem.

Sounds like you have a faulty head gasket or maybe a cracked head.This can cause overheating and the check engine light to come on.The code for the o2 sensor is probably caused by coolant getting into the exhaust system and coating the sensor.The coolant fan may work but it cannot remove enough heat from the rad to make the engine cool off.Try some engine coolant stop leak to see if it will help.This maybe only a temperary fix.Let me know if you need more.MOE
