Overheating I think the thermostat is going out on my 2002 Hyundai Elantra GLS, it's overheating, and running the heater is the only thing that helps from running hot. IS the thermostat easily fixable for DIY?

Should just be the two bolts holding the metal cover on. Follow the top radiator hose if you aren't sure where it is.

Before you do this, make sure you check your coolant level to make sure it isn't just low.

Hope this helps.

My cooling fan will not turn off. 2001 Hyundai Elantra GLS 2.0 l engine


1. Check the scan data for engine temperature to see if it shows that the engine is running hot. The ECM will turn the A/C relay off if it thinks that the engine is overheating. Check engine coolant temp sensor

2. Test voltage at the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) pin 50 (Yellow) and pin 58 Yellow/Black. Both should have battery voltage when the system is turned on and the engine is running. If not, then the wiring needs to be checked.

3. If battery voltage is present on the two pins, then manually ground pin 68 (Orange) at the PCM and this should ground the A/C relay and the clutch should engage.

4. If it does, verify that the PCM powers and grounds and connections are good.

The cooling fans are not coming on and it is overheating...We switched the horn relay with the radiator fan relay and the horn still worked and it still overheated...so dont think its that...What about...


hi.
the sensor is usually located on the side of the radiator. it is usually a srew in unit with 2 wires coming from it. just remove the wires, unscrew the old one, and screw the new one in and reconnect the wires. if you are lucky, you should not loose more than a cup of coolant either.
hope this helps

Radiator leaking and overheated. We replaced the radiator thermostat but now the car will not turn over and start. We are thinking sensors need to be reset and head gasket needs to be replaced.

Engine overheat, A/C shut off, fan hot


Chances are that your engine is ok. Bad engine overheating can seize the engine. Less extensive overheating can crack the engine especially the cylinder head and lead to power loss or mixing of water and engine oil. If water is mixing with oil, the oil looks milky. If your car is not losing power and the oil looks normal then chances are that there was no damage to your engine.

Just make sure that whatever caused the overheating in the first place is sorted out - perhaps the radiator flushing resolved the cause of the overheating.

Overheating, don't know why


The most common problem with overheating is the thermostat. It becomes plugged and won't allow enough coolant to pass through the system. Another cause could be old coolant. Flushing the coolant periodically (when the coolant appears to have rust in it or has faded in color) is a good idea to keep the antifreeze/coolant up to peak levels. Bost are worth looking into but I'd be surprised (barring any leaks in the sytem) if the thermostat wasn't the culprit here. Best of luck.
