SOURCE: Cooling fans will not kick in.

The fans won't kick on then you need to replace the coolant temp sensor this runs your fans.

Sometimes fords can be tricky. Try to be sure that all of the air is purged from the system. I usually do this with a manual release cap. run the engine then slowly release the pressure. then the system will stabilize. If that doesn't help then you may have something restricting flow inside the water jackets through the engine. some shops have those nifty little cameras that they can run through the system to look for potential problems. hope it works out for you. I know how how much of a pain some of these problems can be. Good luck.

Car was overheating replaced the thermostat now the heat isnt blowing hot and the car is over heating worse it's a mitsubishi galante


Could be that fan is not kicking on. check and make sure it is connected. could also be a vapor lock. some cars require bleeding water system and if so most bleeding screws are located around thermostat housing. Call local autozone and ask if your car requires bleeding water system....NOW the overheating could be from fan not kicking on and the best way to find out is to turn on defrost and if fan is working it will kick on automaticaly. If it does kick on then this shows that fan is working fine but this does not mean that fan is running properly.The fan is controlled by a heat sensor which kicks the fan on when motor reaches a curtain heat range. If this sensor is not working it will cause car to overheat.... Could be also that waterpump is bad.Not all waterpumps leak when they go bad.Sometimes the impeler on the waterpump which is what moves water through the system simply stops working and this would cuase it to overheat.......hope this info helps and good luck...Please rate my post and if you need more info fill free to contact me...Need to find where leak is coming from also for this is more than likely the problem........

97 Monte carlo is overheating.


If the thermostat is sticking closed you can maybe tap the housing with a hammer or other tool while it is running, it may cause it to open up and you will see the temp going down on the gauge. As I recall the thermostat is at the front, within easy reach, so you could go ahead and take the thermostat out, reassemble and see if you still have a problem. For testing it won't hurt anything to run without it, just make sure to replace it with a new one if it's bad. There's also your waterpump and possibly a fan clutch. If it has electric fan make sure they are coming on, if not maybe the fan itself or possibly relays can be bad. Please rate this. Thanks and good luck.

Overheating


Your overheating problems can have several possible causes.
1) Airlock in heating system - solution - bleed air from cooling system.
2) Radiator blocked - solution - drain and flush radiator
3) Failed waterpump - solution - fit new waterpump
4) Engine thermostat stuck in closed position - solution - fit new thermostat
5) Electric cooling fan (if fitted) failing to operate - solution - check fan, fan operating switch, all wiring and connectors
6) Not enough coolant in system - solution - check and top up to required level. Also check all hoses for sign of leakage.
7) Faulty temperature gauge giving incorrect reading.

Loosing water from my overflow bottle in my lantra 1995 - N reg and the car is overheating. Don't know where the leak is coming from - anyone any ideas?? Please


First, is the radiator fan coming on? If not, you will need to check fuse,sensor, relay and fan motor. Need to check thermostat for proper operation. If all is good, you will need to have radiator flush. Keep me informed and I can guide you so more.

there is a coolant cap on the overflow bottle check it for seal
i'd just replace it
also if you put the new thermostat in backward the overheating would be significant

Did you bleed the cooling system after refilling the radiator ? to bleed the system, fill the radiator with water and coolant. Run the engine until it is at a good temperature. Then turn off the engine and look for a bleeding screw at the oulet of the thermostat housing and turn it with a screwdriver counterclock wise. The trapped air will go out and coolant will start coming out. refill the radiator and repeat until only coolant comes out and no air.be careful not to burn yourself.
