If it gets hot at high speed such as freeway driving, but seem okay at street driving, It is the radiator. If it gets hot really quick at any driving condition, it could be the thermostat. Since there is no leak, the last possiblity, and also least likely is an extremely retarded timing. Lastly any kind of leak will cause an overheating problem, but from your info, it don't have a leak.

How far can i drive when my 2001 alero is overheates


The more you drive it during the overheating the more damage you will do to the car. Running out of gas wil not cause overheating. Wrong type of antifreeze/coolant will not cause it to overheat either. Wrong coolant/antifreeze may cause corrosion over time to some engines. When you notice it getting hot, stop as soon as you can safely. You may have a problem with the thermostat, coolant leak, bad head gasket, bad water pump, bad fan or fan relay or fan thermal switch, clogged radiator, leaky radiator. I would have to know more about the syptoms to give more insight.

Why my 1993 acura legend blow's cold air but not hot air,the AC works fine.The cooland level is good too.What can ido to fix this? too cold to drive the car like this,please help...


It sounds as though your heater core is stopped up, have someone intelligent to drain your radiator and catch the antifreeze because of animals drinking it, it will kill the animal, then flush the radiator & heater core with a flush designed to cleanse the system, follow directions from flush manufacturer, then put the correct amount of antifreeze in your radiator. Wal-Mart or any parts place will have this in different brands. This may help, it did on my 1998 mercury Mystique.i hope this helps you
P.s. Just follow directions on the flush container & this can be done by the do-it yourselfer
Make sure you allow the engine to cool before pouring the new antifreeze into the radiator, could burst your engine block.

2002 Oldsmobile Aurora- DIC warning: "Engine Hot...A/C OFF". What's wrong?


The ecm is turning off your A/C because the engine is overheating. Is the engine hot? Have you checked the antifreeze level?

Antifreeze light says system is low and car runs hot but antifreeze level is where it should be


Sounds like it could be a thermostat not opening. If the thermostat doesn't open then it will get hot because its not allowing the cooled antifreeze from the radiator into the engine. Your car has two circulations with the antifreeze. While your car is running it is heating up the antifreeze in the engine and when it reaches a certain temperature the thermostat opens and takes the hot antifreeze from the engine and puts it into the radiator to be cooled. At the same time the cool antifreeze from the radiator is placed into the engine to keep it cool. If your thermostat doesn't open your engine will get hot and overheat.

When the engine is cold,and the radiator is full,starting the engine,does it blow out the radiator?If it does,then a head,or head gasket is blown.If not,bleed the system of air.The engine cooling system might have air that needs to be purged out.

Water from radiator is boiling over to antifreeze


when does it do this? If it does it right after you shut it off, then its supposed to do that, as your engine will actually get hotter, before it cools down.

Dodge stratus R/T 2002 antifreeze problem(antifreeze coming out the cap)


First the "service engine soon" light is a manufacturer installed reminder for you to get an oil change or other pre-determined maintenance service done. It is different than the "check engine" light which indicates a sensor malfunction. Secondly, when the engine is cold the thermostat is closed and the antifreeze or coolant is not circulating. The cooling system is a closed system and the tank that the cap is on is not an overflow tank but rather an expansion tank. This tank allows for the expanding coolant that is now hot to leave the engine coolant jackets, that won't expand, into a tank that can expand slightly. When your engine got to normal operating temp., aka.. hot, the thermostat opened allowing coolant to circulate and fill the expansion tank probably over flowing with the cap off. This is a normal operation for your car.
