Question about 1999 Plymouth Breeze

1 Answer

Car overheats while coolant is full

Overheats while driving for just a few mins going down the road or sitting idle. No leaking while driving or sitting idle, and oil is fine (had changed twice no signs of any problems). It has been sitting for months now and I'm going to start trying to fix it. Going to start with the thermostat and see where that gets me. Any suggestions would be must appreciated!

    I would definitely start with the thermostat and let us know if that doesn't fix it.

Check to see if the electric radiator fan works, run the car and turn on the a/c on high to see if the radiator fan comes on. If it doesn't come on then check the fuses and relay to the fan and wire harness to the fan. Check the radiator it self, check the out side to make sure the heat exchange finns are not plugged up with winter mud and dirt, and the inside look clean and corroded or plugged with rust.
If that is ok then change the thermostat and the hose, a soft hose will collapse and restrict the flow of antifreeze. The last cause would be a bad water pump and not pushing the antifreeze as much as it should.
Good luck and hope this helps.

2001 olds silhouette engine overheats


Time for Intake Gaskets and possibly head gaskets, very common problem with these, the intake gaskets go bad and the coolant actually burns in the cylinder and of course the cylinder pumps air into the coolant system because of intake gaskets being bad. :-(

I may have added too much coolant. After adding it, I drove for about 15 minutes. A few hours later, the tempurature gauge light came on. I check the coolant level again and there was nothing in the...


No, you can't add too much coolant. Rather, it does not hurt anything if you do. Did you add it to the radiator, or to the overflow tank?

Let it cool, then remove the radiator cap, and if needed, add coolant to the radiator. Put the cap back on, and fill the overflow tank to the "full - cold" line. Start it and run it a few minutes and look for leaks. If you find no leaks, drive it for a day or two, then let it cool and check it again. If it is down a lot (without overheating), you have a leak somewhere. If you lose enough coolant, that will make it overheat. However, if it overheats, that can cause loss of coolant, when you stop the car, you will see steam and smell coolant, and often hear it boiling.

If it overheats again, make note of when it happens: driving on the highway, or stop-and-go around town. Overheating on the highway usually indicates a clogged radiator, while in-town overheating usually indicates a bad cooling fan (you don't need the fan above about 30 MPH). A bad fan is usually the fan relay, but it can be the fan thermostat (different from the engine thermostat), or a bad fan motor.

Overheats and stalls at lights


you should first FIX the leak. if not enough coolant, the sensor won't activate the radiator fan, thus overheating occurs.

On idle bmw 1997 318 overheats and blowers are cold.every was fine a week ago this car has only 47 000 miles and been serviced every year


well start by checking the coolant level it may be low,if it is then check for coolant leak, if coolant is full then bad news, ive done a few of these with overheating and no heat, they had bad head gaskets, if coolant is full have a block test done, this will confrim the gasket problem,also dont drive could cause converter and o2 sensor damage. good luck.
