Maybe the sensor that turns on the fans might of gone bad . . and turning on the ac when engine is gettin hot is not going to help instead turn on the heater to reduce the heat , also overheating causes hoses and gaskets to get soft and get destroyed

Car overheats when using ac.


You can try several things. The radiator fan is controlled by a thermal switch and in some cases the A/C maximum air setting. Do you know if the fan is turning on? Some have 2 speeds. The thermostat is a low cost guess.

The engine idle can be affected by overheating. Also turn off the A/C and see if that makes a difference in idle or overheating.

My 1997 Dodge Intrepid overheats. I've replaced the thermostat, and it continues to overheat. I noticed adjacent to one of the radiator hoses, a ribbed hose that is split. Could this cause the car to...


Now that you've eliminated the thermostat, it could be a number of other things. Don't drive the car too far until you've fixed the overheating problem - overheating can destroy an engine.

That split ribbed hose you see is plastic wire loom - it carries and protects electrical wires, and is not the cause of overheating.

1. Low coolant level
2. Radiator hose split/cracked, causing low coolant level.
3. Head Gasket - leaking, causing low coolant level
4. Thermostat - stuck closed (you eliminated this possibility)
5. Radiator cap - worn/damaged
6. Radiator fins - obstructed by debris/cardboard
7. Water Pump belt - missing/broken
8. Heater Core - leaking, causing low coolant level
9. Intake Manifold Gasket - leaking, worn, damaged
10. Radiator Fan Relay - faulty
11. Radiator Fan Blade - broken, missing
12. Radiator Fan Sensor/Switch - faulty
13. Water Pump - leaking, causing low coolant level
14. Radiator Fan Motor - faulty

My primary suspects would be Rad Fan Relay (#10), and
Rad Fan Switch (#12).

2002 monte carlo overheating


Better make sure the fan works. There is a switch on the radiator that turns the fan on when it gets to a certain temperature. It could be the fan or the switch. Your thermostat is not your cap, it's in a different location. (Usually at the engine end of the upper radiator hose) Get the leak check! A good garage can pressure test the system to see what leaks you might have.

I replaced my a/c belt on my 1999 intrepid and afterwards trying out the a/c function. I noticed that the fan blades aren't turning. Nothing electronic was touched and all fuses are good. Do you think...


Assuming that you are speaking of the radiator fans, they don't normally come on until the engine warms up. If the car was not overheating before the A/C belt belt was replaced, then the fans were working. Start the engine and feel the radiator where the upper engine radiator hose fits. When the thermostat opens, the radiator will suddenly get hot. The fans should come on shortly after that. Check the temperature sensor near where the upper hose comes off of the engine--there should be a wire attached to it. Does the temp gauge move normally?

Overheating- smaller fan is fried would this cause it to overheat


Is it an hour idling? If you are overheating going down the road, this is either a thermostat, or a plugged radiator. The fan will contribute to overheating sitting still.

2000 sebring. Overheats with air conditioning on.


I just had my coolant flushed and my radiator cooling fan replaced. The car was slightly overheating and would "gargle" in the coolant bowl after I turned the engine off. It turned out to be the radiator was clogged up on one side.

I went full tilt and replaced the radiator, water pump, thermostat, radiator cap and timing belt. I have 85,000 miles on the car and it was about time to do these things anyway. It is running like a new car now.
