SOURCE: engine overheating

The same thing happened with my 01 cavalier. My dad replaced the thermostat and it did the same thing. Then he discovered that there is something called a temperature control sensor that had to be replaced because when the thermostat froze open, it destroyed the sensor. It was a lot cheaper than any of the other parts and once it was replaced, it worked fine.

SOURCE: My 2002 Chevy Malibu is overheating. I found that

If your car is equipped with a 3.1 or a 3.4 litre V6 and you have preformed all of the above listed work then I would have to say its the intake manifold gaskets. They commonly blow on these motors. Just a design flaw, nothing but replacing them when they leak can fix this. Also run a coolant pressure test on the system to check for minor things like a leak that you cant see from visual inspection. Hope this helps.

1997 ford expedition overheating problem truck warms up fine heat works good then heat goes cold and temp gauge jumps from normal to overheating i have changed the thermostat twice water pump fan clutch...


This might sound like too simple a solution, but after owning 5 expeditions, I think I may have an idea.

It is possible that the cooling system is simply not full of fluid. If, when changing the thermostat twice and other service, the system was not sufficiently bled or burped, this can happen. What happens is that people do these repairs, and then fill the radiator, but fail to completely flush the cooling system. My son had the exact same problem on his Mazda 3 (Mazda was owned by Ford then), and flushing his cooling system solved his problem.

Think of it this way: If your heater works fine, then goes cold, that usually means the heater coils which the air blows over have no hot fluid in them. As for overheating, your thermostat opens when your engine reaches a certain temperature with the intent to exchange the too-hot fluid with water cooled by the radiator, but if there is only air, or insufficient fluid in the engine after the exchange, you will overheat.

Ask your mechanic to flush/burp the cooling system completely. I hope this works.

Causes overheating


If you have done all that, it leaves the water pump and the fan.....how long does it take for it to overheat? Does it overheat sitting at idle in the driveway?

Audi A6 2001 quattro 2.8 mysterious over heating


Yes, replace the thermostat. Then you need to 'burp the coolant system'. Your car has all the hallmarks of air in the system, especially a heater that is cold. This is because there is no water in the heater matrix. This is why it overheats. The system must be full and with no air to circulate correctly through the radiator.

Burping involves the following steps.

Remove the lid to the reservoir, remove the radiator cap, fill the radiator to the top, turn heating on full blast, start engine and get to operating temperature, keep topping up. Squeezing the radiator hoses helps. The level will rise and then drop when the thermostat opens. Top up when bubbles stop and the level becomes constant. Put radiator cap on, top up the reservoir and put the cap on that.

Overeheating 1997 mecury villager


Here is the generic method to purge air from the cooling system, this must be done anytime the system is drained.

o This is the generic method to purge air from the cooling system.
Use a floor jack and raise the front of the car as high as possible, then fill the coolant recovery tank full and run the engine until it reaches the high end of normal zone on gauge, do not overheat the engine, then shut the engine down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will self bleed the system of air and the coolant will be pulled from the recovery tank to fill the void, repeat as necessary, never let the recovery tank run dry or more air will be pulled into the system

1997 chrysler lhs...changed the thermostat and the water pump...still overheating...was told it has an air pocket...how do I fix this?


Run the car with the radiator cap loose, that will cause it to burp per say. After a day or two you can tighten the cap on the radiator back up.

1998 nissna maxima , with radiator replacement car continues to overheat, with low to no heat


First, make sure engine is warmed up, then feel the top of the radiator hose, is it hot ?, if not then you may have a bad thermostat, replace with a 195 dgree, or you could have a bad head gasket.
Let me know what you find.

Overheating in Diahatsu Charade 92. EFI 16 Valve.


Did you burp the coolant? If not, you have air bubbles in the system that are trapped behind the thermostat, keeping it from opening. Run the car at idle until it's 3/4 of the way to overheating, then shut it down and let it cool. Pop the radiator cap and the air bubbles will burp out. Check the level of coolant in the radiator and expansion tank, top off as needed, and repeat a couple times, and you should be good to go.
