you have to change your Heater Core. Your Antifreeze moves in a circular motion from Radiator to Thermostat through engine to your heater core back to your radiator. If there is no circulation, your engine is going to overheat. I had the same problem with my Pontiac Grand Prix.

hi jasso, I would recommend checking the water pump if you see no flow in the radiator. Make sure when you fill up the cooling system, that you fill it cold, and that the vent screw in the radiator is loose. fill system until fluid comes out the vent screw. tighten the screw, start the car and have someone run at 1500rpm and check for flow.also, make sure that you have your temp setting full hot and blower on middle speed so that you don't trap air in the heater core.

SOURCE: Kia Sedona overheating. New radiator/compressor. Now what??

To start with you have to do this:
With the engine cold, start the car and say after 30 to 40 secs. open the radiator cap.
Carefully and slowly, cause if the problem is either in the cylinder block or cylinder head this shows immediately as water would be compressed in the radiator ( even though the motor is still cold ).
If nothing happens and you would not notice any bubbles in the radiator, then we have to talk again.

SOURCE: 1990 4.2 Jeep Wrangler that is overheating

Still sounds like a bad or from scrapyard? If you can't add coolant faster than a really slow dribble that's a big clue.
You can run the engine with the heater on high and the engine should not air-lock. I'd also remove the thermostat just to make sure it is not defective. Run the engine without it and see if it still overheats. Last, it is possible that your head gasket has failed, and engine compression is causing the overheat. I tend to think not only because the hose stays soft.
While it's running, also make sure that the lower hose is not "sucking in" if it is, replace it. On 4.0 engines you can also get the serpentine belt on wrong and it will drive the pump backwards. if you replaced the belt check that too.

at the bottom of the radator at one of the corners useally the left side there is what is called a petcock, turn that counter clock wise and the radator will start to drain, open the radator cap and it will go alot faster.

Probably the fuse of the thermostat or the thermostat is dead, so the fan doesn't cool the water in the radiator

maybe you have a blown head gasket your leaking head gasket when ur car is cold open your radiator cap see if the coolant in it try to tap up coolant until the neck of your radiator then start your engine and observe the radiator neck if the collant puks it out if your coolant is pukking out meaning you have a leak or blown head gasket and thats the cuz of your overheating

There are many possibilities for car overheating.

Faulty thermostat clogged radiator/plugged radiator, radiator hose worn out. Coolant running low. Low coolant pressure. Faulty temperate sensor.

92 nissan 300zx air bubbles in radiator

Bad news is the air bubbles are actually exhaust gases entering your coolant, you have a blown head gasket, and or bad head, which is also the overheating concern.

Just replaced my water pump but my car is overheating. could the water pump be defective?

I would say that is possible, but unlikely, if you just put on new one, this could be most likely your thermostat is stuck or just plain bad. If it is over heating instantly, and your sure your water pump is operating correctly, then it could be the thermostat.

I recently had my thermostst replaced on my 2000 silhouette and the next day it ran hot. the garage that replaced the thermostat then told me i have a blown head gasket. is that true

could be, but you can verify. First make sure there is no air bubble in your cooling system. Recommend you park on an incline, remove the radiator cap, start the car and let it warm up until there is flow in the radiator. Fill the radiator and keep it full while the engine continues to run. Look for any bleed ports the system may have either in the hoses or at the attach point housings. Crack any bleeders open to allow any air out. Top off the radiator all the way to the neck and make sure there are no bubbles coming up. Bubbles coming out the radiator are an indication of a blown head gasket. If no bubbles, close the cap. Check to see if the car is still overheating. When overheating is due to a blown headgasket, the bubbles are usually easy to see. Please let me know if you have any questions and thanks for using FixYa.

Overheating in Diahatsu Charade 92. EFI 16 Valve.

Did you burp the coolant? If not, you have air bubbles in the system that are trapped behind the thermostat, keeping it from opening. Run the car at idle until it's 3/4 of the way to overheating, then shut it down and let it cool. Pop the radiator cap and the air bubbles will burp out. Check the level of coolant in the radiator and expansion tank, top off as needed, and repeat a couple times, and you should be good to go.

Overheating problem

I would go with slowcalafl. It is either air, or a cracked head bad head gasket. Remove the radiator cap when cool. Start up the car and watch for bubble emerging from the coolant. If it continues to bubble, you have a bad head or head gasket. If not, look for improper timing as another possibility.
