SOURCE: car runs hot

CHECK YOUR RELAY IN YOUR FUSE BOX UNDER THE HOOD ON THE DRIVERS SIDE INNER FENDER. THE A/C AND THE HEATER RELAY ARE SAME. CHECK AND SEE IF THE A/C REALY WORKS BY TURNING ON YOUR A/C SWITCH. THE ELECTRIC FAN SHOULD START RIGHT AWAY. OTHERWISE YOU HAVE TO WAIT TILL THE ENGINE ACHEIVES OPERATING TEMP TO KICK THE FAN ON. IF ONE DON'T WORK AND OTHER OTHER DOES... SWITCH THE RELAY AND SEE IF IT WORKS. BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT. $9.00 FOR A NEW RELAY AT CHECKER AUTO PARTS.

SOURCE: The top radiator hose blew apart. after replacing and filling radiator back up engine runs ruff and guage is hot. radiator water is cold. What is wrong?

First place I'd look is at the thermostat. However, if the hose did not rupture in a normal manner and blew apart, I'd also suspect that you may have a blown head gasket. In that case, compression is entering the cooling system which is not designed to handle such high pressures, therefore causing the hose to explode). This will also result in rough running you observed.

SOURCE: 1997 cadillac eldorado running hot

Make sure you put in the correct temp thermostat. GM usually has 2. A low temp and a high temp. Most shops will give ya the high temp just because thats usually what the book calls for. you might want to try a low temp. Also, sometimes, when a car runs hot and everything has been repaired....well, almost everything......it might be the head gaskets. And those my friend are no easy task. But..somewhere to start. have your cooling system pressure tested. Only way to really know for sure. Oh..also make sure your fan is working!!!! You might have a faulty fan switch.

SOURCE: My 1997 Chevy Lumina Runs Hot, replaced thermostat

like snownbird33 said, first you need to make sure the cooling system is burped. if all the air is'nt removed it will run hot.second make sure your cooling fans are operating, they useually want come on until it reaches around 227 degrees,or the a/c is turned on.third make sure the water pump is'nt leaking if it's a 3.1 liter or 3100 (same engine ) they are bad about the water pump leaking or the blades on the pump are corroded off or propellas are slipping on the shaft.

The radiator cap isn't getting hot and needs water to replaced frequently


radiator hose may be closing together after running for a while causing water to overflow to tank and ground

Car is running hot after thermostat replacement; also recently replaced radiator


If the car is still running hot after replacing the thermostat, then there are a few issues that you need to check. Is all the air bled out of the cooling system? Do you have a leak somewhere? Is the top hose and bottom hose both getting hot? Is the temp sensor working correctly (meaning the sensor says that your car is in the red, but really your car is not overheating at all). Is the cooling fan turning on? It has to be one of those that is causing the issue with the car overheating. Most of the time, its due to not bleeding the air out of the system, or the water pump not functioning correctly.

Top radiator hose is HOT, radiator is steaming


have u replaced the radiator and hoses? Thermostat could also be stuck open. Water pump could also be your issue. with motor cool and of remove radiator cap(cap may be bad as well) top-off fluid and start car check for fluid flow with flashlight. Water pumps typically leak from what is called a weep hole when the shaft seal fails. Yours will be located under the timing cover (drivers side) running of the timing belt.
Hit me up after u have check on these.

What could it be


Hi, I think you have an airlock in the pump,You need to drain the water totaly when stone cold.Drain radiator and disconect hoses from waterpump and top hose from themostat. Reconect pump hose and add water slowly into radiator through top hose untill rad is full then squeeze bottom hose vigourously,You ll feel the water tension in the hose, Connect all hoses and top up water level. This must be done cold as hot and cold water will cause an airlock. Hope this helps you out.All the best.Phil
