Low in anti freeze, water pump, or the thermostat stuck. I would start by changing the thermostat, (assuming you have already checked the water/anit freeze), and go from there.

Does the engine light come on if the car is overheating?


Hi Jonna.
not sure if this will help you out,but its what i have found on the internet.

Your car's "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light can flash on for more than 1,400 different reasons, and in the coming months, we're going to share with you what some of those reasons are. The light is part of your vehicle's on-board diagnostics (OBD) system and can indicate anything from a quick fix like a loose gas cap to a major repair like a catalytic converter.
Trouble code: P0217 Engine Over Temperature
If this code is discovered, it means the engine coolant temperature is excessively high under normal engine speed. The engine coolant is overheating if it's around 240 to 250 degrees. This is a critical light! It means your engine is beginning to overheat.
In addition to the check engine light, you might also see some other type of warning on the dashboard, such as a red temperature gauge or maybe the words "engine hot."
The warning lights should come on before any damage to your engine occurs, but you need to shut the engine off as soon as possible.

Connie, Were the radiator,water pump and thermostat replaced to try and fix the over heat issue or as maintenance.

2009 honda fit fuse diagram


all that is normal but the overheated ,did it?
there are 6 signs of overheated. ask. at least.
modern cars the EFI systems. try to prevent damage by drivers
that ignore overheating,
my chev PU, cuts injectors 1 by one till the goofy driver, parks car.

please say , what happens next. wont start?
btw 2,
my guess, is your engine stalled, ? and you then didnt notice
hard steering and 3td time applied brakes are harder?
and that RPM hit zero, and engine went silent? (my wild guesses)

yes> that the dash does show the test lamp mode
to understand that, get in car, turn key to Igntion on, no start
see all those lamps glowing, it is a self test.
the glove box oper. guide explains that on how to start the engine page.
the CEL comes on , on all stalled engines. this only means.
the PCM has power, (elect) and thinks, its kinda ok. selfttest ok.
brakes and charge glows, for same reason,.selftest , RTM.

if the CEL comes on , driving, and the overheated happens
if you do a OBD2 scan tool scan, it shows overheated.
if fact obd2 scans will show the actual engine temperature.
200f normal 250+ overheated.
if all this is hard, , find any ASE mechanic.
and btw, do not run an overheated engine or the $5 bad hose becomes a new engine time.

WHEN CAR STARTING OVERHEATING MAKE SURE COOLANT LEVEL DIDNT GET TOO LOW. IF NOT I WOULD REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP IF OVERHEATING WHILE SITTING IDLING COOLING FAN NOT COMING ON.CHECK COOLING FAN FUSE AND RELAY IF ALL IS GOOD.CHECK COOLING BY HOTWIRING IT.IF RUNS YOU HAVE A BAD COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OR FAULT IN WIRE CIRCUIT.IF FAN DONT RUN WHEN HOTWIRED REPLACE FAN MOTOR.IF CAR STILL KEEP OVERHEATING CHECK ENGINE OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK BLOWN HEAD GASKET.IF OIL LOOKS OKAY YOU NEED RADIATOR AND ENGINE FLUSHED OUT.

1999 nissan altima, overheated and no leaks after fluid replinished, but car will start and then shut off after a few minutes.


check to see if your engine oil and antifreeze are mixing.if overheated you burned ur head gasket car will not turn on because it loosing engine compression. to check this you need to do compression test..ur engine will seize if you keep starting it.and letting it keep shutting off.keep damage to a minimum internally

Temp guage goes up and check engine light comes on


If engine is overheating then check coolant level and thermostat first, then water pump. If engine is not overheating then check coolant temp sender for gauge.

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.

Engine overheating audi 4.2 a8 1999


I would have the cooling fan checked, and have the thermostat changed. An overheated thermostat (overheating caused by something else) will cause problems in the future.
