Hello, I would check the radiator for scaling. It sounds like you have some stopped up coils which will allow water to flow good enough while on the expressway but not in town. You could take it to one of the oil change places and they can flush the radiator at a reasonable price and tell you how bad the scaling is. If its too bad you might need to get some stronger flush from the parts store and do it a few times to get it all out. I hope my answer helps and good luck.

You may need to check on the radiator fan if it is blowing properly. try to disconnect the thermostat at bottom radiator hose and you should feel the fan blow at its strongest.

While driving my f150, cools just fine after 20 miles it starts to overheat at lights


Could be a fan clutch, sticking thermostat, or restriction in the cooling system including air in the system.

Jeep overheats quickly at city driving , not at highway. and quickly cools down? had thermostat replaced. what could it be


city driving does not force air through the radiator like highway driving does. if it has overheated, suspect a blown head gasket caused by expansion of the head when warm rubbing against the gasket and tearing it. could be the water pump, pull a heater hose and start engine. if coolant blasts out, pump is working. caution!! coolant may be hot!!! if it trickles, you have a restriction or a bad pump. stupid question, you have coolant in the radiator, right?

Should you drive in overdrive all the time or just out on the highway


Hi. if your driving time consist of many hours in the city, it will not be required for you to use OD. You can use the regular D in the city, or around town. Using the regular D in town will decrease the unnecessary down shifting that will occur in OD if you are driving in town. The OD function is best used on the Highway, during long periods of travel.

It is also best to use the regular D when pulling up hill, or off road travel, as well.

What is the proper way of using overdrive,how and when you have to use it?


If you are not climbing steep hills or towing, leave it on all the time. Turn it off for low speed/high strain driving like towing, climbing and off-roading.

i hope this helps

Same problem in my 2001 lincoln ls.


youre using more power during highway drives, therefore more vaccum. check your vaccum lines for leaks which may cause the vent door to close/or open which may be causing your problem. if your temp gauge shows the needle in the center of the gauge while driving on highway, your thermostat is fine. check vaccum.

Overheats when idoling, but not while moving


possibilities include: fan clutch, water pump going out, missing fan shroud or baffles in front end, clogged radiator fins or a/c condensor may need cleaned. Possibly stuck thermostat, low coolant level , and this can be caused by faulty radiator cap. Hope this helps!
