    check between the a/c condenser and the radiator. many times leaves and stuff will get stuck between them.. You won't notice in winter but as it gets warmer out you loose extra cooling from low ambient air temp.

The water pump isn't pumping enough water once it gets moving. I'd say it's time to replace it.

99 mercury cougar v6 2.5L, temp gauge is reading hot after thermostat change why? is it a air bubble or is it a bad temp. sending unit? any other ideas? please help


May be a defective thermostat or place in the wrong direction. If it's properly installed, might want to check the fan operation which may be producing the overheating.
If fan is good, one way to remove air in the coolant system is to run vehicle while all heaters on. take extra coolant and stop along the way to top off if needed. While driving, keep listening for the fan to begin running when vehicle reaches high temperatures.
If you continue to experience overheating, may want to take to a local known repair shop for further troubleshooting.

What is the cause of the engine running hot? I have replaced everything including the radiator. The only thing I have not replaced is the coolant reservoir


If everything including the water pump and thermostat has been replaced, you are looking at something other than the cooling system.
Has it been running hot since the engine was rebuilt ? Is the exhaust in good condition ?
How long can you drive it before it overheats, and does the gauge show it hot, and does it boil over ?

Car runs hot. Its 2005 grand prix


Start by flushing your coolant system, then refill with a quality coolant.
Run up to temperature and check again for level (when cool again)

Check that the radiator is getting really hot quite suddenly when running from cold, as this is the best way of checking thermostat operation.
When over a set temperature (check your manual) the fan should come on.
If it never does - troubleshoot the fan (temperature switch or sensor first, then fan on direct feed to see if it powers up ok)

My 2001 Lincoln LS keeps overheating


No your right change the thermostat and antifreeze and that should fix the problem about $30.00 do not drive till you do the work or you will damage the engine. also make sure the cooling fan is turning when it gets hot but only for a few seconds.

'98 Buick Park Avenue running hot


replace the thermostat just to be safe. not to do so is what i call to gag on a nat and swallow a hog. then pressure check the cooling system to make sure it is not making pressure above what is on the radiator cap. if it is you may have a blown head gasket. make sure yer not gettin antifreeze in the oil.

Very hot car.


I'd test the fan by connecting it directly to the battery to verity it is functioning. If it is, check the relays that control the fans they should be located in the fuse box in the engine bay. If the relays are ok the only other thing that could be causing the problem is the temp sensor on the radiator.
