No experience with this car... But check the radiator for leaks, make sure it is not low. If possible check if the ecu is throwing codes.

SOURCE: My 97 Chevy Camaro, Is overheating, The Thermostat

I hate to be the one to tell you but water (coolant) is in your engine oil. The more you run your engine the more you will hurt the engine. Stop running the engine. You have eather a blown head gasket or a cracked head or both. Your engine is full of scum and must be rebuilt or replaced. All of the scum (oil and water mixed) will never come out. It washes the lube off of all you engine parts and clogs up small oiling holes.

SOURCE: Overheated, changed water pump and thermostat. Overheated again within a week.

it you are not adding antifreese. you could have a clog radiater, or maybe need timing adjustment. but if the radiater is clog . you need to flush the collant sistem.

Nissan Tiida overheated & the engine block is allumminium. What needs to be done?

check to make sure there's no antifreeze in your oil and then I would restarted I would remove I believe the thermostat tatted up and run it without the thermostat in it adds more coolant to it so is not going to overheat again but most likely is probably because of the.themostat.

How do i tell if my water pump is bad on 2001 dodge intrepid 2.7 ?

what is worries me is the fact that your oil level is over full. This is a sign that you are getting fluid into the oil system that you did not add, coupled with the fact that your car is overheating leads me to believe you might have a head gasket issue.

Chevy lumina overheat

engines overheat with no thermostats. Very simply put the water circulation is too fast for the heat to transfer to the air. Water pumps fail from bad bearings and pump seal but for no other reason. So back to basics Refit with a new thermostat put in properly. Have a flow test done on the radiator for blocked cores. have a coolant system pressure test done for leaks and cap failure.. have a compression test done to check for head gasket or cracks.. Check for correct ignition timing and air/ fuel ratio mixture. Run fault codes . when refilling with coolant ensure that all air locks are removed

Start up and start to overheating

Check your antifreeze level and your thermostat. Low antifreeze will cause overheating, sticky thermostat will also cause overheating.
Check your water pump. The internal pump fans may have come off

Vehicle overheating quickly. changed thermostat it ran fine for about 2 weeks, now it is overheating quickly again. no leaks are coming from water pump. Do not see any water leaking anywhere, but when it...

Hi, check you have heat coming out the heater in the car put it on hottest setting and see what happens if it comes out cold then the chances are the head gasket has gone and is pushing gasses into the coolant system causing an air lock and then over heating.

check the oil for signs of a white substance look on the oil level stick and also inside the oil filler cap if their is any signs of milky substance then this is proof head gasket has gone.

let me know what you find out ok

I've intrepid car has overheating problem has thermostat, working water pump, and keeps overheating

Might be blown head gasket. Is there oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil? Either of these would tell you that.
Also the exhust can get into the coolant and make the coolant low all the time.
I had two Chrysler products that the exhaust forced coolant out and had a bad head gasket.
