Start with the basics such as verify correct coolant level and water pump operation. Check air flow across condenser and radiator. It is easy to fold-over the cooling fins with high pressure at car wash. Observe operation of fan to make sure viscous function properly spins fan blade at high temp. Also verify a good radiator cap. All the basics covered and no problem found you should then look into possibility of restricted radiator core, especially if temps are rising slowly, such as under load or long, hard pull up a hill. Will be more noticeable on hot days. Least likely from the description is thermostat, though don't forget it if necessary.

99 ford taurus starts up but doesnt drive more than 10 miles per hour and temperature starts to rise


maybe a coolant thermostat that is faulty, a collapsed or perished hose..

It could also indicate cylinder head gasket/cylinder head problems.

Ten miles is about the correct distance for a car engine to reach normal operating temperature. If your temperature gauge continues to rise beyond normal ..ie. overheating .. you risk causing a lot of damage to your engine.

If you're not sure what to do or look for - get somebody to check it out for you

Temp is staying at 210 and does rise while in use. we replaced thethermostat and radiator cover. any ideas. I just bought it used 2 weeks ago


The I6 engine needs to be at 210 degrees, no less than that. The Temperature guage is just a guess, hook up a scanner and look at live data if you have one. Did you replace the coolant temperature sensor also? In 04', it's right above the thermostat you replaced. If you don't have a scanner----If the guage just rises a 1/16" of an inch to an 1/8" past 210, I wouldn't worry about it with your new thermostat in place.

Temp guage Rises/almost oveheats when Heater is on. Temp Rises to almost H then drops fast to just above C and repeats but only while heater is on


The cooling system has an air pocket in it. The best solution is to have someone with a vacuum coolant system,and drain and replace the coolant. The only other way,is to jack up the front of the vehicle,and take off the radiator cap,and run it with the heater on full blast. Wait till the thermostat opens,(when coolant level drops)...then top it off while its still running.If you buy ,or have a friend who has a tool called an "Air Lift",..it will make this MUCH easier,and cleaner to fix.

Check for low coolant, you might also have a sticking thermostat. Alot of fords get air pockets, make sure if it needs coolant to let it run for about 10-15 min with the radiator cap off.

You may have an air pocket in your system which some times happens.  One way to get rid of it is to take the upper hose off on the engine side,  fill your system with water until it runs out from your engine block, replace the hose, start your car turn you heater on and set to hi keep the radiator cap loose until the temp start to rise then close tight.  Once the air pocket had been remover you can drain some of the water from the radiator using the lower drain plug and add antifreeze.

1992 accord running hot


Check the cooling fan switch and the temperature control switch, they should be turning your fan on when the engine temp begins to rise (as when u stop and gauge starts to climb).
