2006 Ford Explorer overheat - 2006 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

You have no story or details here
Hopefully you stopped driving it,
within a few miles of it overheating.
I assume you do not have vehicle
repair experience since you ask?
Did you check for codes?
Did it go into head temp fail safe?
Has it lost coolant due to a leak?
Sort of new vehicle to have any problems

Testimonial: "stopped it as soon as overheat was detected. haven't been able to start it since it overheated. It cranks but slowly. pulled each plug individually and cranked the engine with no change. Don't know what head temp. fail safe is. There is no apparent leak except for steam from overheat. Has had radiator and thermostat replaced recently. Think maybe water pump failed. Can't figure what is causing the slow crank after the overheat."

Hi, dwings.
With your description, there are a few things that you can check.
First, check your antifreeze fluid to make sure that there is enough. Turn on your car and let it run for about 15 minutes, and then check the overflow tank. There should be coolant inside. If there's not, go ahead and add some.
Also, check to make sure that the fans behind the radiator are working.
Lastly, you may have to take your car in to your local (and trusted!) car shop, and have them check your water pump to make sure that it's still functional.
Try these steps. If any of these solve your problem, great! If not, please come back and let us know and I or another expert will think up a few more solutions for you.
Thanks for asking!

2006 Ford Explorer Overheats when AC is on. Goes back to normal temp when AC not on. Coolant was just about gone for some reason and had to add some but that did not fix the problem. Oil is clean too.


STOP USING IT NOW--- before you ruin the motor

Have a shop find out where the coolant went (common sense)

You didn't think adding coolant or water would be a permanent
fix surely, as no fluids are consumed or need to be topped
off.
