Engine Coolant Hot

My 2004 Avalanche says Engine Coolant Hot on the Dash, does not appear to be leaking coolant? How would the coolant be so hot, could it just be low?

Could also be the thermostat not letting the coolant circulate.

It could be low, it could be not circulating due to a faulty coolant pump, it could be a bad pressure cap, it could be a head gasket allowing coolant into the combustion or oil chambers, it could be a bad temperature sensor. If you have an analog gauge at the instrument cluster does it aso indicate hot/

Obviously it's temperature gauge light. Check for coolant level first. Then check for coolant leak. If coolant is leaking out of your car, the lower coolant levels in your engine will cause it to overheat. If you have your heater on and it starts blowing hot air instead of cool, your engine is low on coolant. This will cause to flash a warning light on your car's dashboard.

Heater blowing cold engine overheat


First, you need to check your engine coolant level. If the level is low, the first thing to quit working is the heater. And of course if the engine is low on coolant it will overheat.

If the coolant is low then you need to check for the source of the leak, like a bad water pump, leaking hose or clamp, thermostat gasket, or just about any other gasket that seal off the cooling system.

Don't operate the vihicle if it is low on coolant, this can cause hot-spots inside the engine and can cause damage. Top it off with coolant, start it up and check for leaks.

Let us know what you find so we can be of further assistance.

Hi my 2003 chevy avalanche low coolant light is coming on but coolant level is good ,and my water is boiling out of the coolant bottle ,


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

You may have a faulty radiator blower motor. If the blower blows weak it will surely be not enough to make the engine cooled down. One good reason the water boils on the bottle. Another issue can be a clogged radiator and a faulty water pump. These can make the engine hot too when faulty. Please give enough attention on the possible causes to prevent severe damage to the truck.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Temp gauge is in normal, 200 degree, range when starting. Within a few minutes of driving goes up to 250, right below orange line. No leaks found, coolant level appears fine. Any ideas?

The temp gauge is showing that our 2004 Avalanche is overheating and we have replaced the water pump, thermastat and coolant senor and it still shows to be overheating....what else is there to do?


Is the radiator clean and flowing coolant? Why was the water pump replaced? What was the condition of the old coolant? If the engine is HOT the air coming through the radiator should also be HOT, if its not, the radiator has blockage and will need to be removed and cleaned.

My 2004 chevy silverado is saying engine coolant hot? what does that mean and what should I do?


That means you need to check the coolant level NOW, and also check everything over for leaks (coolant went somewhere) Do not open your system if the engine is hot. Wait till it cools off!!!

2004 Chevy Impala no heat from defrost or heater


No heat is often a symptom of low coolant, usually followed by overheat. There are other controls that regulate heater, but right now, re-fill the cooling system with engine running and heater on high, then check for leaks (coolant you lost went somewhere...you need to determine where) Low coolant will damage your engine. Take care of that first, then if heater still does not work, then do diagnosis on that. (if you loose the engine heat won't matter, will it!)
