Yes, start by checking or changing the thermostat. Also, did you check to make sure you are full of fluid/ water?

1994 toyota camry 2.2L, any idea why my car gets overheating!!! I changed the distributor and thermostat. I had to remove the thermostat again because it keeps getting overheating, now runs little longer...


additional to all that, you could have a leaky head gasket,cracked head or a plugged rad. do the fans come on when it starts to get hot (a little above half ) ??

OVERHEATING


Thermostat is probably bad.

Without knowing what year your car is, the thermostat could be here:

.To test the thermostat, put it in a pot of boiling water. If it clicks, it works. If not, then replace it.

Overheating


Possible sticking thermostat (probable) but you could have a fan thermostat going bad also if it has an electric fan, next time it starts over heating look under hood and see if the fan on the radiator is spinning, if not it or the thermostat for it could be bad

What make a car run hot


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If you are low on coolant fluid, it will cause it to overheat. Check your coolant fluid level. If your fans are not working or kicking on, it will cause overheating. If so, check the fuse for them. Check for leaking coolant on your lines. A bad radiator can cause overheating and a bad cap can cause overheating. Make sure the cap is snug. Make sure there are no leaks. Now, the most common issue would be a bad thermostat or a sticking thermostat. Next, I would say would be a bad water pump. Now, it could be the water pump valve or impeller, but that is not common. Also, a bad head gasket can cause overheating. Anyone of these can cause your issue. Check fluid first and fans. You may have a leak or a bad fuse. If the fans do not work, that is probably your problem. They should kick on when the car begins to heat up. If the fuse is good and they still don't work, it is either the wiring or the fan itself. I hope this helps you out. Take care. Rick

I have a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon that is overheating. How can I tell if I have a bad water pump or if it could be the thermostat. Does not appear to be a radiator leak or hose leak, but I am constantly...


If it's overheating it will lose antifreeze.I would change the thermostat first and see it it solves the overheating problem if not then worry about the water pump. Thermostats are only $7-10.

Overheating....changed waterpump/thermostat!


Take the overflow tube out of recovery tank and immerse in container of water. Run engine and watch for bubbles. (head gasket) Is your fan coming on? (fan or relay)

Overheating problem


I would go with slowcalafl. It is either air, or a cracked head bad head gasket. Remove the radiator cap when cool. Start up the car and watch for bubble emerging from the coolant. If it continues to bubble, you have a bad head or head gasket. If not, look for improper timing as another possibility.

It sounds like your thermostat has gone bad and sticking close, Replace the Thermostat and Antifreeze. When replacing the thermostat, buy a fail safe thermostat so you will not have a overheating problem when the thermostat fails. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

I have an overheating problem.what could be wrong


Overheating can be casued by a few things.

1)Thermostat
2)Water pump
3)Dirty coolant clogging the pump

A thermostat is the cheapest part to replace, a thermostat opens and closes allowing coolant into the motor as needed to keep it cool, if it gets stuck closed then it doesn't allow any coolant into the motor thus overheating.

A water pump is what pumps your coolant around the system, and if this goes no coolant moves thus overheating. Usually when these go bad they leak coolant and are also noisy when bad.

Lastly could be bad or dirty coolant, a coolant flush can take care of this.

If I were you I would start with the thermostat followed by the coolant flush, both of these can be done in your driveway.

Hope this helps
