Question about 2004 Kia Sedona

1 Answer

OVerheating and dumping antifreeze

I have a similar problem. Was stuck in stop and go traffic for over 6 hours. Next day AC didn't work well and temp gauge went to hot. Had to drive home with heater on.

I figure it's the thermostat. Fuel gauge didn't move though.

Sounds like you have a fan issue if it over heated while you had ac on and was stopped it would not cool the engine or the condensor try turning the vehicle on turn the ac on with hood open spray the condensor with water hose it is in the very front of the car see if ac starts blowing colder most people overlook the basics.

96 Saturn wagon. temp light flashing. not overheating and just replaced water pump. any thoughts?


If the water pump was replaced, was the thermostat changed as well? If so, it could be that the system is 'settling in' and just needs to be topped off with antifreeze for the next few days. Sometimes when it's put under pressure to fill, it doesn't fill ALL the way and requires a little manual topping off.

Dodge spirit troubleshooting


If it overheats while driving more than 25 miles an hour, the thermostat is bad. If it overheats while stuck in traffic only, either the fan motor or the temperature sensor/switch that controls the fan to operate is bad. This temperature sensor/switch is installed on the radiator. It screws into a threaded hole.

Overheating gage when stop & go -2004 chevy tahoe


natural for engine temp to rise in Traffic - Until Themostat opens ) cooling fan sensor kicks on fan . But Antifreeze is not just a Cold weather item . Coolant is Absolutely Necessary for Hot Days . You must be full to recovery bottle setting of cold when checked prior to start up . Coolant for your make / model is Reddish - Pink colour and should have a reading of -25 thats negative 25 degrees the Lower the Better even - 50 .. Why ?? - 50 is 50 %% antifreeze / Coolant Concentrate MIX Gives Hot weather cooling Ability or very cold weather starting / winter HEAT .

Possible Water Pump Issue


The coolant system is pretty straight forward. Start with the least expensive and work your way up. Overheating is normally caused by 1. stuck or non functioning thermostat
2. leaking hose or hoses
3. marginal or non functioning water pump
4. clogged or bad radiator.

Not Overheating, Smells like really hot antifreeze after I drive, a/c ok heater heats but when stopped air gets cold...stummped..thermostat?, Leak?


check your hoses and make sure its not getting low because when it gets low the hoses can get hot enough to expand and spit out antifreeze without overheating

My 1991 wrangler started overheating - i had the AC on and was stuck in traffic turned the heater on (ac off) and the temp returned to normal - where should i start?


You might check the fan,if it has a thermostatic clutch on it.
It should spin up with the same speed as the engine.And free wheel when the engine is first started. If it looks lazy,and just barely turning, in the heat of being stoped in traffic it may be whats causing the overheating.
