They must of disconnected ur battery any time this is done it stalls. I know because mine eats alternators. After about ten alternators i found out online that u disconnect the negatyive wire then reconnect it turn on ac let idle for 20 mins yw ac running and it resets it. It does it every time u disconnect the battery. MitsubishI doesn't have a set way to reset it. But this does work

May simply be the throttle body adjustment. This is all dismantled to get to the head gasket.

SOURCE: 2004 Mitsubishi Outlander AWD, over heats when idle

Sounds like the electric fan is not coming on. Could be the switch screwed into the radiator, a malfunctioning fan relay, a blown fan fuse or the fan motor has gone bad.

Try replacing your cooling fans since both fans are probably not coming on at the time the a/c is on. If your car uses a single fan, then it must have a hi and lo speed so probably the low works but the high doesn't. If you can barely hear the fan spin then it is probably working in the low speed position and you should check that.

2007 Lincoln MKX Overheating Fans not coming on although jumped both fans directly to battery and they are good WHAT NEXT Please Help Frustrated and pissed Thanks DL

usually at idle they wont kick on until car reaches certain temp under stress. change thermostat since its fairly cheap and is a simple fix. number one cause of overheating. but number one effected is head gaskets and that will cost you.

Engine overheating

Overheating can be extremely bad for a car. Back in the days of carburetors, when engines were made of steel, overheating was much more common, and less damaging. But the modern engine has far less tolerance, with its aluminum blocks and, often, aluminum heads.

Many head gaskets have been blown out by overheat issues. Many heads have been cracked. These are not cheap repairs. Therefore, be vigilant and watch that heat gauge (thermometer). If your car starts to overheat, pull to the side of the road, and let it idle (do not give it a fast idle - that only worked in the days before electric fans) and, if that does not seem to be working, shut it off.

Bohdan Bodnar wrote: "The 2.2/2.5 liter cooling systems *MUST* be purged of air before operation; otherwise, coolant flow blockage will result (i.e., hot, possibly REALLY hot, engine). Partial purging will cause the engine to run hotter than normal; the temperature will gradually drop to normal as the system purges itself over several days/weeks."

My 2003 Ford focus blew a head gasket a while back. I got fixed that, changed out the water pump, thermostate, water resevoir, and a few hoses. It started to overheat again, but the thermostate wasn&#

If you got a blown head gasket, water is getting mixed with your oil, pretty much ruining it, and your oil's viscosity will be affected, causing oil pressure to drop and your light turns on.

How do you know your car is overheating if it's not showing in your gauge?

When replacing blown gaskets there are a few things that is best to do, like sandblasting the heads, clean, scrape block and use proper torque an sequence, only removing old gasket and placing new ones won't fix the issue, those gaskets go through extreme conditions, expansion, temp changes, etc, they need to be put mindfully. I mention this because it seems you changed a lot and ended up with the original issue...

If your gasket is blown you need to fix that asap, then identify where is your coolant leak/blockage that causes alleged overheating, doing a coolant flush might help. Good luck.
