    Have you tried draining the coolant and putting new coolant in? How hot does it get? What does the gauge say? How long did you run it after you noticed your problem of overheating?

Dodge durango 2004 hemi running hot

You need a radiator. The cores are plugged. Flushing will not help and if you flushed the cooling system when coolant was filthy and rusty everything is now in radiator cores.

2001 dodge 1500 ram truck - acts like it is over heating - BUT - the temp. gauge does not raise, there is no evidence of leaks under the truck, around the hoses or thermostate - the themostate opens like...

does your temperature indication needle start at cold and then rise to normal operating temp? What symptoms are displayed by the vehicle that give you the assumption to overheat? Even though your coolant is full and working properly, how old is the oil? Also check the quantity to make sure the engine is getting lubrication. If it is cold where you live, you may have to get a block heater so the vehicle doesn't dry start where the oil is like a gel, and doesn't adequately lube the engine on start up. If your oil and coolant capacities are correct, and you tested your thermostat by boiling it or however you did, the vehicle should be be fine.

Also consider your water pump and fan. If it is electric make sure it is operational when your vehicle is hot, if it is a clutch fan, make sure when the engine is off it doesn't spin easily. If you are getting ample heat from your vents inside, your water pump should be circulating water. Check these and if it still doesn't work get back to me via email.

2001 Hyundai Accent cranks, won't start

its the camshaft position sensor . Its located (atleast on my 1.6L) to the right of the front HOT plate the conection runs between the engine and the right side fan. easier to work on if you take off the air intake thats by the left front side of the battery. you will be working between the fan and the motor. only one bolt but is tricky so u need a 1/4 inch nuckle with a 1/4 extention. once located and you have the right tools it will only take 30 minutes to replace....dont forget to take off negative battery cable before you start.

Alot of systems dont have a battery listed for 2001 hyundai sonotas so they will give you what "fits". These can touch metal parts of the car and ground the battery to the car. It will act like alternator problem and eventually kill the alternator because its overworked. I had this problem. Walmart and Advance gave me wrong batteries. I didnt know until I took it to the dealer.
