Bad airflow thru the radiator could be something blocking the front of the condenser, or a faulty radiator fan motor.

My 2008 Chevy equinox keeps overheating even after I changed the thermostat.. What else could be causing this problem.. It runs fine when not idling


Have you confirmed that the radiator fan is working properly. A bad radiator fan would cause this type of problem, as when driving air is being pushed across the radiator and likely enough to keep the vehicle cool, however when you stop and idle that airflow is gone and the radiator will heat up very quickly.

After a long trip when engine gets hot, it wont start until it cools off


make sure you have 50/50 coolant and water.i would replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.replace air filter make sure engine getting fresh air.check radiator cores and front grille from debris blocking off airflow through grille to radiator.if problem continue flush out coolant system radiator engine block and heater core.water going bad cause over heat problems also.

The antifreeze from the radiator is going to the deposit box and the radiator stays empty this happens after use.


Physically look in the radiator under the cap when cool, for coolant level, and check the valve in the cap for sticking. If air is present in the radiator it can't get out, and more coolant can't get in,(from the overflow). Either clean the cap or replace it and check that it is the CORRECT cap. Check for obvious leaks.
Radiator fins dirty, clean with a strong stream of water, not high pressure water.
Radiator clogged, try backflushing it, or replace.
Thermostat stuck open or shut, replace it.
Water pump worn out, can no longer move enough coolant, replace it.
Fan shroud broken or missing....
Electric Fan(s) not working, Check the fan, relay, fuse and engine temperature sensor's.
Belt driven fan, belt slipping, fan clutch is bad, fan blades have flattened out.

Air dam under front bumper is gone, loose, or broken. It actually has a purpose other than scraping on the driveway or curbs. It forces air up into and thru the condenser and radiator. If it's loose, airflow can actually push it out of place making it useless or blocking the airflow. Along with that, there may also be a plastic piece attached to the bottom of, and wraps up behind the bumper. If it's loose, airflow can actually push it out of place blocking the airflow. Simply reattach it with 4 or 5 screws.

Also, if the vehicle has A/C and electric fans, one fan is dedicated to the A/C and should come on almost the instant the A/C is turned on. The engine fan will run even with the key off, that is normal. The system is trying to cool itself. Hope this helps.

How can I trouble shoot my temperture gauge on my 98 pontiac sunfire, it works at random


IT COULD BE A BAD TEMP SENSOR ON THE ENGINE BLOCK,REPLACE IT AND IF THAT DOESNT WORK ,IT COULD BE A BAD INSTRUMENT CLUSTER,GM HAD LOTS OF PROBLEMS WITH THE GAUGES GOING BAD.IF THAT IS THE CASE THEN THE CLUSTER WILL HAVE TO BE SENT OUT FOR REPAIR.

My radicator fan is not working causing my temp gague to move alittle to the red. Is this the fuse? I added anti freeze and it still moves to the red. Thanks

FUNCTION OF A RADIATOR FAN


Hi,
When you are running your engine the coolant is circulated around the engine by a water pump.
When the temperature rises to a pre set figure (ie 80 degrees C) the thermostat in the system will open thereby directing the water through the radiator.
The coolant gets a good deal of 'cooling' in the radiator purely by the airflow caused by the car's forward motion.
However when stuck in trafic, crawling along or in hot weather etc etc this flow is not enough and a temperature switch in the radiator (usualy) 'makes' and allows the electric fan to start thereby providing more airflow through the radiator and thus cooling the 'coolant'.
Hope this helps.

Overheating prob in chevy camaro z28 97


Check for obstruction in front of radiator/condenser that would cause loss of airflow through the core.Sometimes these cores get clogged with bugs or debris and airflow is deminished. The reason for overheat with A/C on is that the condenser adds to the heat in front of the radiator and if there is not enough airflow then the engine also runs hot because radiator can not be cooled sufficiently.
hope this helps
