If you already put in a new thermostat, then the radiator must be clogged up internally and needs replaced. Maybe the new thermostat is defective.

'97 Pontiac Sunfire, 2.2L, se (Base model, no power options.), 5 spd manual, coupe, 185,000kms on it. Car heats up to three quarters on gauge during idle, sometimes 9/10ths (sitting in traffic, etc.)...


make sure the fan works first ,, jumper 12 volts to it, and see if it even runs,, if it does,, check the fan relay ,, which should be in the under hood fuse/relay box,, you need that fan working to keep the temp down. , once thats taken care of, flush the system using a radiator flush additive,, ( save yourself some money and do this with just water, No need to waste antifreeze) once thats done, fill it again with a 50'/50 mix,, remember,, antifreeze breaks down just like the oil in your motor does, and needs changing one in a while . if you don't know for sure that the thermostat was changed, change it,, for less than 15 bucks its worth it,, instead of a new motor .

2001 lincoln town car overheated badly. parts have been replaced. Engine light is on and it loses power.


What you need is a real mechanic to first figure out what is actually wrong with it, then replace that part. Just randomly replacing parts and hoping for the best makes no sense and can be very expensive. If it overheated badly you could have also suffered irreparable harm to the motor.

Many issues can cause overheating, your description does not provide any info which could even point someone in the right direction to consider what could be wrong with the car.

Replaced water pump, coolant pipe, and thermostat, car still running hot


Did you change the head gaskets, they may be bad or you may have a cracked head. Heater core may be plugged up. May have to take it and have it flushed out.

2000 3.8 Impala keeps overheating even after changing thermostat. Did not overheat after short trips, after changing it, but started back after driving over 20 miles. Temp gauge goes to red and coolant...


Sounds like there could be an air pocket in your cooling system. If the job was done by a mechanic take it back. If a "friend" helped you, tell him to rebleed the system. Also seems like your water pump might be bad. If it was overheating before changing the thermostat and is still doing the problem only worse then I would assume the pump needs to be changed. If the pump is bad, there is no doubt that air is in the system still and causing the overheating to occur even faster.

CHANGED tHERMOSTAT AND NOW VEHICLE DOES NOT START


Changing a thermostat should not cause any issues with starting. Check the engine compartment thoroughly as you may have inadvertently loosened or disconnected part of the ignition system while working under the hood to get to thermostat.
