When you fill the radiator does it accept coolant easily or do you need to pour it in little by little? If It dosent fill easily I'd suspect a partially plugged radiator. Also, make sure you have the belt routed correctly. It is possible to get drivebelt on in a way that turns the pump backwards (doubtful you did that though) When you refilled the system, you had the heater on high while the vehicle was running while filling?

    Omit the part I said about the radiator...I re-read and see it's new. Perhaps a better question is are the fans working properly?

  • Richard Scordino Jun 24, 2009

    You should have two fans...an electric fan mounted against the radiator and a mechanical one attached to the engine.

2002 chrysler 300m special overheating


Only thing I do not see in your list and the most overlooked is a new radiator cap. The radiator cap itself is extremely important to regulate the pressure in the system and just something as simple as this could be the problem. If this doesn't I would have to know more. Is the heat working? If not could indicate a clog in the heater core. When you stop does the coolant overflow into the overflow (common condition when the radiator cap) is bad. Since you have done everything it is my guess since you replaced the radiator you used the old cap.

CHECK ANTIFREEZE IN RADIATOR.IF LOW ADD COOLANT.CHECK FOR LEAKING RADIATOR HOSES AND WATER PUMP HOSE.ALSO CHECK RADIATOR FOR LEAKS.IF ALL GOOD NO RADIATOR LEAKS.REPLACE THERMOSTAT.IF STILL OVER HEATS AFTER REPLACING THERMOSTAT .CHECK COOLING FANS FOR OPERATION AND COOLANT SENSOR.ALSO CHECK TO MAKE SURE WATER PUMP WEEP HOLES IS NOT LEAKING.BECAUSE A BAD WATER PUMP CAUSES OVERHEATING ALSO.

The thermostat is behind the upper radiator hose...remove the upper radiator hose and loosen and then remove the two bolts on the outlet (where the upper radiator hose ends) The thermostat is inside that outlet...Another thing to check is 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.

2.3l ranger keeps overheating, been through two radiators already.


Hello Ranger Joe, eight months and two radiators is very uncommon. Question, Have you visually confirmed the leak in the radiators or is the leak near the hose connections? Replacing the radiator, cap, water pump, & the thermostat leaves only two others, the hoses and the engine block/heads. Far fitched will be something or somebody poking holes in the radiator.

If the thermostat doesnt open hoses can **** in on them selfs Watch hoses while at operating temperature and rev the vehicle while watching the radiator hoses,top and bottom,to see if they stay normal.The bottom hose usualy has a steel inner winding to stop water pump from sucking hose in but have seen these corrode and collapse.I think you should replace the thermostat first and check that the fans are cooling the radiator correctly.Also check the accuracy of the water sensor that sends the signal to your dash gauge to make sure its not a simple sensor fault.Generaly a water pump will not give problems until it starts to leak.Have you bled the water system as air locks can cause your problem as well.good luck

2000 Maxima Overheating - STILL


You can't determine if your pump is bad. You just have to take it out and look at it. Its internal insisde the timing cover right by the timing chain. Those pumps are pretty bulletproof, because they are internal, but you never know. I have replaced 1 so far in my 12+ years with Nissan and that was a 1998 Maxima qwith over 200 000 miles. Unless you have a coolant leak or somekind of funny noise coming from the timing chain area, you really can't tell, if the pump is bad. good luck.
