SOURCE: car runs hot

CHECK YOUR RELAY IN YOUR FUSE BOX UNDER THE HOOD ON THE DRIVERS SIDE INNER FENDER. THE A/C AND THE HEATER RELAY ARE SAME. CHECK AND SEE IF THE A/C REALY WORKS BY TURNING ON YOUR A/C SWITCH. THE ELECTRIC FAN SHOULD START RIGHT AWAY. OTHERWISE YOU HAVE TO WAIT TILL THE ENGINE ACHEIVES OPERATING TEMP TO KICK THE FAN ON. IF ONE DON'T WORK AND OTHER OTHER DOES... SWITCH THE RELAY AND SEE IF IT WORKS. BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT. $9.00 FOR A NEW RELAY AT CHECKER AUTO PARTS.

SOURCE: My car keeps running hot.

if you think it may be the cooling fans. then check the fan relay and fuse in fuse box. if they are ok! then run a wire from positive on battery to positive on fan connection, run another wire from neagative on battery to other connection on fan. if the fans are good,they will turn on. have a good day !! also be sure coolant is at proper level.

Changed a radiator today, drained system. Hot water will not heat now. Heating and radiators are working ok


Helen, if it is the radiator in your car that was changed, you may have air in the cooling system that needs bled out. May also be a failing water pump, thermostat,etc.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

2000 Gallant. Installed new radiator, thermostat, and water pump. Why does temp gauge read hot when it's not?


Disconnect the temperature sending unit wire connector for the gague ( not the one for the computer ) with the key on. The temp hand should stay on cold mark. Next, ground the wire and the temp hand should go to full hot indicating the gague and wiring to it are ok. If ok suspect a faulty temp sending sensor if the cooling system is full and properly bled

2000 chevy corvette changed water pump and therm bubbling through rad cap


there should be no air in the cooling system and the system can be bled by using a pressurising equipment . Ensure that the thermostat is placed in the motor the right way with the body facing the hot water (head or block). Air defeats the purpose of having a pressurised cap and system.

I have a 91 Nissan pickup d21 2.4 liter engine 2 wheel drive I have replace water pump thermostat radiator radiator hoses have bled the lines and it still runs hot water boiling in overflow.while truck is...


If you have a viscous fan hub then have it replaced as it is not moving the air through the radiator. Check how you placed the thermostat in the system as the bulb bit faces into the head or block so that it can sense the rising water temperature and open as required.. With not water moving through the hose I suspect that may be your problem

Overheating problems for 1987 chevy K5 Blazer


Is it possible the replacement engine has a water pump that turns the opposite direction from the original ?
The thermostat has to be open to allow flow thru the radiator, have you tried running without a thermostat to check flow ?

2003 Beetle turbo keeps running hot. Water pump, Thermostat, Sensor, and radiator have all been replaced.


I am going to ask what may seem to be a silly question. Does the guage go right up to the hot mark?
If so has the vehicle been checked to see if the engine is actually running hot or the if the gauge is just broken?
Does this car have the correct radiator cap fitted? If it has a radiator cap, it needs the correct one with the correct pressure release.
Another question, If it is a sealed unit, no radiator cap. Has the mechanic bled to system according to correct procedure?
If you haven't bled it correctly it will overheat, as you will have air pockets that will impede the flow of coolant around the engine.

Has anyone checked the head gasket?

Have changed the water pump, thermostat, radiator, radiator cap, all hoses. 2001 chevy venture, still running hot? How long does it take to bleed the cooling system?


If the system fills via an expansion tank, I would recommend removing the top hose from the radiator and filling the system by pouring the coolant in through the hose until it begins to flow out of the upper radiator port. Reconnect the hose and then fill the expansion tank. That should take care of it.

2005 kia spectra over heating


Did you install a new thermostat and make sure to bleed all the air out of the system when you replaced the radiator? If you didn't, or installed a Stant thermostat, replace it with a FACTORY OEM thermostat. Make sure the cooling system is bled by opening your radiator cap (WHILE THE CAR IS OFF AND COLD), starting the car and running the heater. Add coolant to the radiator as the engine heats up, until is at normal operating temperature AND starts spitting coolant back out.

Hope this helps,
matt
