Question about Cars & Trucks
Pretty much it, except for the radiator fans and a good radiator cap that maintains a low pressure (about 13-15psi) in the coolant system. Any possibility you could have air trapped in the engine water passages?
I would recommend a compression test of the cylinders to check the head gasket. Or you could rent the little tester that checks for exhaust gases in the coolant.

I currently am having the same issue. I have traced the issue back to the fans. The fans would not kick on so i let it run to almost overheating temperature, and checked the fans.... nothing was working. I slammed the hood to test a wild hair idea that one of the wires or the fans wasnt getting power. When i slammed the hood, The fans kicked on and the temp. dropped. So now its on to wire chasing.

my husband did everything that everyone else did that had this overheating problem. It was so weird that my engine cooled at a light and heated up going down the road. I have a north star 4.6 engine and this is natorious for happening. my check engine light also came on and so I had a diagnostics done which told me my #1 injector wasn't firing , car ran like **** as well. After putting in a new water pump and plugs,ect. and realized injector was good a friend told him we could have a blown head gasket. So just to see if this was the problem I went to buy a bottle of glassbeads and the auto parts guy told us to purchase a bottle of BARS STOP LEAK BLOCK SEALER NOT RADIATOR BUT BLOCK SEALER $31.99 . He followed the directions and we waited 24 hrs. before driving it. What ever the problem was has stopped my car runs like brand new and I am loving it again. no over heating no injector problem, runs great.......I hope this helps. I know its probly a temperary fix but its a fix and now we know what the problem was. SASSY

the coolant temp sensor is located on the right side of the cyl head its small under by the upper rad hose 13mm socket removes it after u take the small connector of,make sure the car is cold coolant will come out when u remove it,,,,check the connector too for corrosion,by only saturn sensor the cheap autozone and aftermarket ones dont read right and give you the same problem as the old bad one
