Over heating is serious and needs a factory trained technician to research the problem. A FIRE could break out and injur you and your passengers.

SOURCE: Have 2001 chrysler concorde thats overheating. How

Hello Jim.
The thermostat is located at the inlet hose from the radiator on the front of the engine.
Here is a diagram of the housing.

There are two fuses for the cooling fan and two relays as the fans run on two different speeds.
These fuses are in the under hood power distribution box.
Fuse "E" and fuse "B" and the fuse for the relays is fuse# 21.

There you are as asked.
If you need more assistance, please ask me here in a comment.
Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: IT is overheating.I have already

you probably have either the 3.2 or the 3.5 v-6. as 15 years as a chrysler tech, i would say you need a minimum of head gaskets replaced. compression is very low. but remember this, the heads have to be checked for flatness, and if they are warped over 6 thousandths they will have to be replaced.

My Chrysler Concorde 2000 3.2? Overheated and melted a hole in the water resivour tank,so we replaced that, it still got hot fast, so we replaced thermostat, then it started making a loud noise it sounds...

The whistling noise is steam. The problem is you never attacked the source of the problem. What you need to do now is drain your radiator completely at opening T-spicket at the bottom of the radiator. While you drain with engine off, run your water hose on top, to flush out the radiator. Then run to the Auto store and buy "radiator flush" -- follow directions. After flushing out the radiator flush, close the T-spicket, and fill with NEW anti-freeze. By enough to fill to the very top. Mix the anti-freeze with water per instructions to your environmental weather.
Buy a new radiator cap which could have caused the problem in the first place by not allowing the correct pressure to blow off. Being a 2000 car is a little early for radiator problems, but an incorrect anti-freeze solution causes radiators to fail prematurely.. Better to have more than less because anti-freeze keeps the radiator from corroding.
Your radiator never cooled the water sufficiently, and boiled much of the water out, hence it got so hot that it would melt the water tank. The Thermostat could well have been the cause because it got corroded from the inept ant-freeze mixture. Did you find rust on the Thermostat ? If so it was the case. If not the radiator has lost cooling either by low water or the cores have become plugged up, in that case you will need a new radiator. See if the flush loosens the rust within the cores before buying an expensive radiator. Check the water hoses if leaking cooling. Run the car allow the engine to become hot before accepting that your water hoses are fine. Because heat expand everything, and may not leak until after the expansion.

Concorde overheating

Hi Cheryl, I'm glad to help. This is a hard one to answer because I'm not there to here the noise are see what your engine is doing. My best guess is you may have gotten it hot enough to blow your head gasket. Hopefull you did not get it hot enough that you also cristalized the rings which is bad and hopefully the knocking noise is only because it's misfiring and not a rod knock. You need to have these things checked out. Sorry, for the bad news! Hope this helps and have an awesome day Cheryl.

I keep melting fuses for my blower in my heater?

You have a serious electrical fault in your blower/heater. The fuse is protecting your wiring and prevents overheating/burnout.
Do not install a higher rating fuse as you can cause a fire.
You need to get an auto electrican to fix the short/fault.

Problem with this is that it could be a number of things, have ur water pump checked, open the radiator and see if there is water running through it, a bad or plugged thermostat, in this case it does sound like a blown head gasket. id suggest flushing the radiator with some cleaner that u can buy at the store and check n see if ur thermostat is stuck, hope for the best and expect the worst

What can cause overheating in a 2000 pontiac sunfire

Replace the thermostat. It will be fine after that. I know thats what everyone says anytime there is an overheating problem but in this case with the way the system works and it has been working fine up to this point, it's gonna be the thermostat.

It's going to run hot, especially in hot weather but one big thing is what kind of coolant you are using. If it's dex-cool ( chevy and gm brand ) get it out of there and put some pre-mixed good coolant / water mix and it will help a whole lot. Just had the same problem with my 02' blazer. If the water pump and thermostat have been changed you should not be having a problem.
