Is the car actually overheating? Are you adding coolant often or occasionally? Check your thermostat to see if it's working properly. If it's stuck closed, that's about how long it would take start to overheat. To check, remove thermostat, boil water in an old pot, drop thermostat in, it should open. If it doesn't, replace it.

When driving i have rising water temperature


The coolant temperature should rise until the gauge indicated roughly half. if it continues to go until it reaches the red "H" shut the vehicle off and wait for the car to cool off. The most likely cause of this is the thermostat. It is a $4-$10 part and usually is easy to change. Thanks for asking!

My au Falcon teperature light comes on about a minute after the engine is started, the temperature gauge shows low temperature, the radiator is not boiling, I have taken the temperature sender unit out of...


The low water level sensor is in the overflow bottle, not the overtemp sensor.

The overtemp sensor will be on the motor somewhere.

To check you have the right sensor- short the sensor to ground and observe the overtemp light operation.

You likely have a faulty over temperature switch sensor.

As a safety measure, fit a new thermostat and senser. Then top up with antifreeze and water pertaining to where you are.

Has it overheated lately?
My wife overheated our Galant and it just stopped working, it cranks but that's it.
I pulled the sparkplugs and found them wrapped in a gewey jelly like substance. Like an oil/antifreeze combo.
I am going to replace the entire motor for $1000 as taking it to the mechanics to theorize and practice may cost more.
