It could be the water pump, radiator, or cooling fan not working properly. If your heat is off it will not be the heater core.

Hello Justin.
If your thermostat has been replaced with the proper one your engine is heating up.
The problem then becomes twofold.
The amount of coolant/antifreeze flowing through the heater core or a problem with the airflow over the core inside the heater plenum assembly.
I would check for coolant flow through the core first.
If the heat feels like it is warmer coming out an outlet with the fan on a low setting rather than a high one your heater core isn't flowing enough.
To verify you can also check the two hoses that go through the firewall to your heater core once the vehicle has been warmed up, feel the temperature difference between the two. They should both be almost hot enough not to hang on to and close to equal temperature. A hand held temperature gun is really handy for doing this.
If one is hotter than the other your heater core has restricted flow and will need to be flushed or replaced.
Next is to check your temperature blend door operation.
Move the control to hot and cool and listen for the door to move and feel for the temperature to change, if it does at all. The fan on low setting is best to listen and feel temperature changes.
If you feel a temperature change or hear the door thump at each end of it's travel it is OK.
If you have more questions on this problem leave it in "add a comment" and I will return your question.

SOURCE: What could make my 03 civic ex overheat and cool

I have a 2003 Honda Civic EX as well (158k miles). At first it would overheat when idling, and then my heater started working sporadically. It would blow cold air when idling, then hot air when driving. It would also cause my car to overheat. I would turn the temp to cold and the car temp would reduce. My coolant level would also drop to next to nothing every few months, but I never saw any pooling, or leaking from the radiator. I changed the water pump, thermostat, all the belts since I was there anyway, the water sensor and the radiator cap. After all this it was asymptomatic for 4 days, then the problems persisted. I took it to the mechanic and it was diagnosed with a blown head gasket. The test for it is fairly simple and runs ~$45 (1/2hr labor charge). I would try that before changing out more parts when you don’t need to.

SOURCE: Ford Escape 2003. Engine suddenly overheat.

Engine over heating can be caused by a number of things. When you say the water pump and radiator appear to be ok I am also guessing that you checked the coolant level to make sure it is normal.

If the level is low then you obviously have a leak. Insufficient coolant circulating will not cool the motor properly because it won't be able to draw enough heat out. If the level is normal then you need to check the thermostat to make sure it is opening properly. To do this, run the motor to temperature and check the top and bottom hoses. They should both be hot and firrm once the thermostat opens meaning the circulation loop is operating properly. If the top is hot and firm and the bottom is cold/soft or collapsed then the thermostat isn't opening.

If the thermostat is operating properly then you ned to look for some other obstruction or cause for coolant loss. Check the head/intake gaskets, hose connections, hoses, over flow tank, radiator fins, radiator side tanks etc..

Good luck.

Need help with the cooling system


Check and see if your fans are kicking on. and if they are, are they staying on till the temperature of the engine drops. if the motors are worn they may not be spinning fast enough to dissipate the heat from the coolant. If they are not running check the fan relays located in the power distribution box in the engine compartment. If the relays are good you need to check the fan control temperature switch.

Audi A6 2001 quattro 2.8 mysterious over heating


Yes, replace the thermostat. Then you need to 'burp the coolant system'. Your car has all the hallmarks of air in the system, especially a heater that is cold. This is because there is no water in the heater matrix. This is why it overheats. The system must be full and with no air to circulate correctly through the radiator.

Burping involves the following steps.

Remove the lid to the reservoir, remove the radiator cap, fill the radiator to the top, turn heating on full blast, start engine and get to operating temperature, keep topping up. Squeezing the radiator hoses helps. The level will rise and then drop when the thermostat opens. Top up when bubbles stop and the level becomes constant. Put radiator cap on, top up the reservoir and put the cap on that.

Over heating 2001 Mercury Cougar 2.5 manual


is it losing water? if not is your fan kicking on? if losing water, place piece of cardboard under veh at night to help pinpoint where water is leaking. if not losing water and fan does'nt come on check fan relay. if loses water and don't see leak over night on cardboard, then water pump is leaking thru weep hole but only after heats up and pressure is on need to replace water pump.

FORD ESCAPE 2001 CONTINUES TO HEAT


Have you checked the thermo fans are cutting in and out. It may be the switch at the botom of the radiator or someone may have left the wire to the fan disconected probably when replaceing the radiator. or the A/C condensor might be blocked with grass stopping the air flow.

Car overheating fluids are full can't find fuse for fans fans aren't comin on till I turn on heT


Could be thermostat is not opining or water pump is failing. I would start by replacing thermostat if that doesn't help then Replace the heat sensor that tells u temp and when fans should kick on. If Ur still having problems I would replace the water pump. But I highly doubt that it's the water pump. It's either thermostat or sensor.

Changed expansion tank but light still on any ideas 03 ford escape low coolant level light on dash stays lightup


bad low coolant switch or still low on coolant.

Engine Cooling The cooling system components are the:
  • engine coolant temperature sensor (ECT sensor) (12A648)
  • radiator (8005)
  • degas bottle (8A080)
  • radiator draincock (8115)
  • water pump (8501)
  • water temperature indicator sender unit (10884)
  • water thermostat (8575)
  • dual speed fan motor assembly
The water pump circulates the coolant.
The water thermostat:
  • controls the engine coolant temperature.
  • allows quicker engine warm-up.
The degas bottle:
  • provides a location for fill.
  • contains coolant expansion and system pressurization.
  • provides air separation during operation.
  • replenishes the engine coolant to the system.
The fan motor (8C607):
  • operates only when the ignition switch is in the RUN position.
  • will not operate with the switch in the OFF position.
The engine coolant flows:
  • from the lower radiator hose (8286) to the water pump.
  • from the water pump to the engine block and the cylinder heads.
A closed water thermostat returns the engine coolant to the water pump; an open water thermostat allows the engine coolant to flow to the radiator.
Engine coolant provides freeze protection, boil protection, cooling efficiency and corrosion protection to the engine and cooling components. In order to obtain these protections, the engine coolant must be maintained at the correct concentration and fluid level in the degas bottle.
When adding engine coolant, use a 50/50 mixture of clean, drinkable water and engine coolant.
To maintain the integrity of the coolant and the cooling system:
