Car overheats when using ac.


You can try several things. The radiator fan is controlled by a thermal switch and in some cases the A/C maximum air setting. Do you know if the fan is turning on? Some have 2 speeds. The thermostat is a low cost guess.

The engine idle can be affected by overheating. Also turn off the A/C and see if that makes a difference in idle or overheating.

Car overheat when first run turn car off and back on and car run cool


You might need to replace fan assembly and/or thermostat. Mine was overheating only when stopped at traffic lights. Only one fan was working and would cause the car to overheat. Working great after fan swap.

Temp gauge goes way up to the danger zone, but not quite overheating, if I don't have the A/C on. Checked coolant level, it is fine. When driving it rises, when idling in goes to normal.


Possible wiring from sensor ( need to verify it is overheating, with Thermal Gun or probe) if it is overheating, check Fan operation and possible radiator restriction ?

What will cost your car to overheat


overheating can be caused by several things:
1. thermostat stuck closed.
2. low coolant level
3. leaking coolant
4. fan that does not turn on to cool radiator
5. FAN DOES NOT TURN ON WHEN A/C IS TURNED ON.

Overheats, and wont switch gears at times.


Well overheating and not starting are possibly 2 different issues. Oil is not the cause of overheating. Thermostat, water pump, electric fans and viscous fan are causes for overheating plus the sensors that control the fans. Not starting could be caused by the overheating but most likely its a fuel or ignition issue.

Overheating


Check to see if there is water in the oil...If there is water in the oil then it could have a head gasket problem..Did you ever replace the thermostat? If it is stuck then it would also cause overheating...Excessive exhaust backpressure because of a clogged catalytic converter could also cause overheating..Also check belt tension and condition. A loose belt that slips may prevent the water pump from circulating coolant fast enough and/or the fan from turning fast for proper cooling...Another thing it could be is a faulty water pump -- Any wobble in the pump shaft or seepage would call for replacement. In some instances, a pump can cause an engine to overheat if the impeller vanes are badly eroded due to corrosion or if the impeller has come loose from the shaft. The wrong pump may also cause an engine to overheat. Some engines with serpentine drive belts require a special water pump that turns in the opposite direction of those used on the same engine with ordinary V-belts... Also check the Fan -- With mechanical fans, most overheating problems are caused by a faulty fan clutch, though a missing fan shroud can reduce the fan's cooling effectiveness by as much as 50% (depending on the fan's distance from the radiator) which may be enough to cause the engine to overheat in hot weather or when working hard.
