Did you check/replace the thermostat? Another possible cause may be hair line cracks in the head(s).

This sounds like the timing belt is shot. Remove the distributor cap, have your helper crank the engine. Is the rotor turning?? If not, then it is the timing belt. Some engines are rather forgiving when the belt breaks, some will get bent valves. Frankster016

Was the thermostat put in backwards? I know this is a silly question, but I've seen it happen. The water pump will fight it if it is. Another thing are the coolant passages, are they flushed out? Also, if that fan clutch is the original one, I would go ahead and replace that as insurance against the water pump breaking.

SOURCE: Cooling Fan not coming on 2002 Mitsubishi Galant

Check the fan itself for free turning--if it grinds or is hard to turn, replace the fan motor. The engine heat sensor reports temperature to the computer which turns on the relay and it turns on the fan motor. If you have A/C, turn it on--that should force the fan on all the time the car is running. If that works, then replace the sensor. If you don't have A/C, take a chance on the sensor--it's not too expensive. Wrap the threads with several turns of teflon tape when installing and don't over-tighten.

SOURCE: 2000 montero sports Stall while driving,

Just check your air flow meter connections do a "wiggle" test on it (Means move the wires to it while its running) put a bit of revs on while you do it or you will not notice the differance when you find the unrelyable connection! you see the more air rushes through the air meter the more fuel it tells the ECU to supply to the engine! so every it comes out off circit the ECU thinks the engine is idleingso it just supplys that amout of fuel thats why it dies under load!

an injection system will idle with the air meter disconnected..it just wont rev up because the ECU is unaware to supply more fuel understand?
Good Man Good Luck, HOPE THAT HELPS YOU!

I have removed the thermostart of my grand cherokee jeep 1996,i still experience temperature rising while i am in hold up or traffic but reduces as soon as i accelerate.


the thermostat was not the problem but the viscous fan hub ( fan clutch) is
while it is spinning , there is no drive action when idling ( as at lights , slow traffic , hills in low gear etc) and so it is not pulling air through the radiator when needed
your statement that the temp reduces as soon as you start moving means that with forward movement the air is flowing through the radiator and cooling the coolant

Engine is too hot which is burning oil and road dirt off the engine. Sounds like a bad thermostat or a water pump problem. The radiator may be partially blocked too.

My engine overheat when A/C is running on a slow moving traffic or on parking.


I would check and see how much air is actually moving thru the radiator. The fan may not be running fast enough or you may have debris blocking the air flow. Also make sure the system is full of coolant and no air pockets.

Radiator always overheat?


have a compression test done to determine if head gasket or cracks
next have a coolant pressure test done to check for leaks
have a flow test done on the radiator to check for blocked cores
check and bleed any air from the cooling system
if the over heating occurs at lights or in slow traffic check that the fans are coming on
If you have a viscous fan hub (Vehicle not specified ) then the lights and low speeds in traffic the over heating will be the viscous hub.
if it occurs at speed ,check that over drive is engaging
run the fault codes to check that the engine is in tune and no sensors are faulty.

It really does overheat a lot when in traffic.


You need to check youe water pump, thermostat and your radiator cap and if all of that is good it sounds like a blown headgasket.

All you have is one or two fans? Have you checked or replaced the thermostat? The thermostat opens when the engine gets to operating temp, and allows the water in the radiator to flow through engine and the water pump pumps the water out of the engine back through the radiator to cool before it goes back through again. I check the lower radiator hose to see if it get hot like the top hose or you could take the lower hose of the pump to see if it is pumping. I would start with a radiator flush and do this a couple times, prestone makes a flush and Im sure someone else does. do that then change your thermostat, make sure when you put the new one in it goes in spring side down..

You have a bad radiator fan. Check to see that your fan comes on when temp goes past half way, about 3/4.

The cooling fans will not come on until 225 degrees. Normal temp is around 199-215. Sitting still in traffic most will inch up around 220 or so. When you turn ac on it turns the fans on and may cool down engine, Check fan operation.

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.
