SOURCE: 2004 Jeep wrangler 4.0 - 6cyl overheating

I had the same overheating problem in my jeep ! My problem was finaly found out to be the clutch in my fan its a different kind of clutch system it work as this. When your jeep gets warmer the tighter your fan clutch gets .While cool your fan moves slowly. now to test your clutch just warm up your jeep and rev it up a bit if your fan dose not pick up speed then it is sliping.What will come out of this is that you fan will the seez and run full all the time. if you jeep dose not overheat wile moving then it is not your thermo stat period.

the thermostat can be easily changed from up top, the T-stat is located at the engine end of the upper radiator hose under the flange the hose connects to. Make sure u follow manufacturer's cooling system bleeding procedures when you refill after the T-stat is changed out.

I am not aware that there are indeed two thermostats on the 350Z. I would be more suspicious of the water pump causing the overheating problem. Is the water pump leaking? Leaking is a sure sign that the water pump is defective, but I have seen water pumps that were not leaking, but were still faulty because they were partially clogged up. Anyway, hope this helps and best wishes.

SOURCE: Toyota avensis engine management light on car runs

you have an emmisions control part issue. It will need to have the computer scanned to determine the problem. Most emmision related parts will not effect how the car runs but wiil affect fuel mpg.

Sounds like a leaking head gasket. The head gasket can allow coolant to leak into the cylinders, and compression to leak into the cooling system.

I have a 2004 Toyota Sienna with a problem in the engine cooling system. I have had the radiator and thermostat replaced and it still overheats. It does not run out of coolant. Most of the time it will...

the problem might be the thermostat is stuck in the open position, not closed, this keeps the water circulating and its never in the radiator long enough to be cooled, which would explain the bubbling in the over flow tank, flush the system and add new coolant, replace the thermostat ,

1998 toyota rav 4 that keeps overheating. I just replaced the thermostat

Thermostat may be installed upside down...this can cause overheat.
To test your engine...if you don't think thermostat is faulty, remove the thermostat.
This is sometimes called "running cold"...and it should not overheat. If it does, you have bigger problem than thermostat.
You can test thermostat too by placing it in hot water thats not quite boiling and see if its opening properly.

Hope this helps...

We put antifreeze on it, and it went right out. I put more and I drove it home. driving slowly, it started to make noise in the front, and eventually stop. is this a symptom of a blown gasket?

This car is hard to blow a head gasket but sounds like you overheated it too the point the motor stopped running, you will need to find out first what the leak was and repair it and also replace the thermostat due to overheating it, then fill with coolant and run the motor, if you have an overheating problem then have a block test done to see if the gasket let go.i ve worked on many that were overheated and they were ok, they just needed a thermostat and a waterpump that leaked or the impeller was rotted away, hope this helps.
