I think it's a pricey solution to the main problem which is that the maker cheeped out on a too small radiator in the first place. They all do it, some more than others though...

A lesser priced solution is to put on a FlexFan which moves much more air at idle and seems to really make a difference. About $50 instead of the pricey new radiator but what else can you do?

I am not a fan of the thermostatic fan clutch gizmo, in theory it works fine, in the real world - I've never seen one get the job done. Not like the FlexFan, they always seem to solve the problem - google it, there is only one.

If you changed the fan clutch, thermostat, water pump and radiator. the problem is either you have a small leak in the radiator and yes a bigger radiator would solve the problem.

Sounds like a blown head gasket. Try running it with the cap off,while COLD & see if coolant starts pumping all over the place. Do not do this while hot!!! Serious injury will occur. The other way is if you have access to an emission tester you can stick the sniffer just above the coolant in the radiator & if you get a co reading,you got a bad head gasket. Lastly, check the oil dipstick & filler cap for white goo,dead give away for a head gasket.

1990 BMW 525i 2.5L engine overheats after rplaceing water pump, stermostat,fan clucth,radiator


There's trapped air in the cooling system.
  • You need to remove the bleeder screw on top of the radiator when adding water to the expansion tank.
  • With the engine running, pour water into the expansion tank till you see air go out through the bleeder screw's hole.
  • Just keep adding water until no more air bubbles come out then just put the screw back in place.
  • Then fill the expansion tank to it's normal level/line.

Hi, personally I would lean toward air in the coolant system, closed systems are bad for that. Also the temp sensor, fan switch, wiring between fan switch and fan......etc. I found a page with people discussing solutions they found to similar problems;

If the car is overheating and no A/C cold air output. Im sure the radiator fan is faulty. very common problem for overheating condition. If the car is over heating and the radiator fan is not on replace the radiator fan high and low speed it will fix your A/C problemn too. Hope this helps please rate if it does.

Truck over heats instantly


Chances are, and I know this sounds kind of stupid, that the thermostat was installed backwards. I had the same problem once, after replacing the entire cooling system it still overheated and that is what the issue was. I would definitely check that. I hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me.

Mini Cooper convertible is overheating, fan contiues after stop


I had the same problem two weeks ago. I have a 2006 Mini Cooper. Brought it into the shop. They changed out the themostat (under warranty). The service advisor said that the 2005 and 2006 Mini's had a problem with the themostat's.

Good luck.

Overheating


I think you need to do a cheap and extremely accurate test.Its called a tk head test and it determines wether you have head or head gasket problem.If you could eliminate that part as being the cause then that really only leaves a couple of things left to check.A blocked radiator or an air lock.Maybe a faulty radiator/expansion tank cap not able to maintain correct pressure
