I have change the sensor and gauge and still my car temp. gauge moves to the hot zone right away. what elese can it be. I even check the relay is good.


Try disconnecting the sensor. then turn on the ignition switch and see what the guage dose. If it still goes to the top, chances are there is a short in the wiring. If it does nothing, chances are you have a defective sensor.

Top half or Radiator is hot while the bottom half remains cold . Is this normal


This can be due to one of a few different things...First of all, water flows from the engine to the bottom of the radiator, using the water pump and gravity, and the water returns from the radiator back into the engine on the top side.

Thermostat isn't opening...this causes the water / antifreeze to remain in the engine, and not flow through to the radiator. If the water / antifreeze gets hot enough, it should activate the thermostat and water should flow into the radiator through the bottom radiator hose.

The bottom radiator hose is either worn out (there is a spring inside the length of the bottom hose. it is there to keep the hose from collapsing under the suction pressure during normal use) If the hose feels spongy, soft, or shows signs of cracking, replace it.

The radiator may be clogged, preventing the water from flowing freely through all of the 'fins' in the grill section of the radiator. Hot water usually isn't just in the top section during a clogged radiator situation...

I had a 2003 buick hyderf rent it keep getting hot chang thevwater pump theomasant still hot what next?


Radiator is stopped up and/or it has dirt & debris preventing air flow through the outside wire venting.

Leave radiator cap off, Start the engine, let it heat up and watch to see if the water is flowing past where the cap fits. If water level drops-add water. If water does not flow/move then the radiator is stopped up. Take the radiator to radiator shop and have a professional flush.

If you have good water movement & it gets hot then the air flow through the outside venting is restricted. You may be able to use your garden water hose with high pressure jet stream & spray all the venting areas that may be clogged with dirt, bugs& debris. In any case DO NOT KEEP THE AUTO RUNNING WHILE DOING THIS.

Another problem may be that one of you hoses could be collapsing and the water will not flow. I advise changing all of your hoses based on the age of your vehicle . End of msg.

Yes it is normal just no hot air


1. When setting the temperature to MAX, blower level to FULL and outside air Vent CLOSED, no hot air comes out after 2-5 minutes?
If YES, when did you last flushed your radiator and is it full?
2. if more than 5 years ago, flush radiator system, instructions are usually in Owners manual. Use a bottle of Radiator cleaner, run egine hot for about 10-15 minutes, carefully open petcock in bottom of radiator to flush out radiator, WARNING, careful as flushed coolant would be boiling hot. As sson petcock is open and water start to flow out, carefully open radiator cap to enhance flushing flow. Use garden hose to fill radiator while flushing until water coming out from petcock is cold and clear.
Once clear, start engine, turn heter full and blower full blast and keep hose in radiator flowing full, leave petcock open until clear water flows out again. Once clear waters comes out, turn off engine,turn off garden hose and let water drain empty radiator. Once it stops flowing out, close petcock snug and put radiator cap on, pull off radiator coolant catch bottle, clean bottle for any debris and dirt. Drain any water, leave bottle empty and put it back onto its place.
3. Fill radiator with 1 gallon (4L) of concentrated coolant, top up radiator until full, fill catch bottle with concentrated coolant, start engine and keep it overflowing until no bubbles comes out and the radiator is fully hot. Once it is flowing good, close and connect everything. Drive with it and keep catch bottle filled as necessarry.
Good luck. Give as vote and good comment if this advise solve youor problem. Thank you.

I have a toyota with a 3L engien. when i drive up to 90km/h the temperature goes fine but when i push more ex: up to 120km/h he start geting hot and if i ve been drivi´ng for 40 min the water pipes...


You have a bad Radiator. It is clogged and needs to be flushed and cleaned. At normal driving speeds it is flowing just enough water to keep the car cool, but under heavy demand, like driving fast, the flow rate is inadequate to keep the temp down.

Juguar over heats water hose are soft and the resavior spills out the over-flow check engine light comes on


if your hoses are soft your problem may be that the bottom radiator hose is flattening when the engine is at normal running temp. & not letting enough water through,to check this get the engine up to normal running temp. & watch the bottom hose while you rev the engine to see if it flattens....hope this helps.....cheers

This car runs hot when idleing but is fine at highway speeds. I just replaced the water pump and had the radiator rodded out. the electric fan is running fine and moving air well.


The thermostat might be stuck open. If it is then water running into the radiator is not spending enough time there to cool off before flowing back to the engine block. At speed the increased airflow is having a greater cooling effect while blowing through the radiator fins. With the car totally cool, open the radiator cap and then start the car. Watch the water flow in the radiator. If it is flowing straight through right from the start, you'll know it is the thermostat. It should sit in the radiator until the engine reaches opening temperature and then the flow begins. As soon as the cool water from the radiator reaches the thermostat, it closes and the flow stops. So constant flow equals bad thermostat, flow then stop then flow equals working properly.

1995 jeep lalredo 4x4 keeps geting hot


The problem with these jeeps is that the older they get the more clogged the radiator geats.
The radiator in the Cherokees are only a single row of tubes.
You can try to flush out the radiator, but replacing it with a heavy duty type is probably a better option.
Your car is not getting enough flow to cool down the engine.
Also you want to check that the electric fan is coming on. There is a coolant sensor in the radiator.
