The problem you describe is an indication of a bad head gasket.

Take it to a shop and have them test for this.

Coolant boiling problem


There are a number of possibilities:
1. Not enough anti-freeze in the cooling system. Anti-freeze not only protects against freezing, but also boil-over.
2. Defective thermostat. If it is stuck closed or partially so, it can cause overheating.
3. Clogged radiator.
4. Defective water pump.
5. Blown head gasket.

How to keep your car below boiling poimt. ALL CARS!!!


most times in the heat your cars cooling system can over load, to stop overheating, always check your vehicles radiator water never the overflow resevoir.

always make sure your top radiator hose is hot, when running and your thermo fans come on automatically when on average heat temp. (half way).

make sure you cannot hear any noises ( clunking, grinding etc) from the waterpump, and always make sure you dont see water leaking from the vehicle ( except when air con is on).

if you do spring a leak always get it repaired ASAP as delay may further damge your cooling system, eg, head gasket and or head, effects may be warped, bent or cracked cylinder head.

always check your radiator and top up if needed at least ONCE A WEEK to avoid damage. and keep your overflow resevoir kept on the correct level.

cooling system failure can produce a big effect on your engines running capability and also your wallet!!!!!

keep your car cool in the heat!!

and also note, coolant or anti freeze does not keep your car cool, it is a corrosion inhibitor and only prevents corrosion and muck in and around your cooling system, your thermo fans keep your car cool!!!!

If the car overheats is it cause the alternater?


No. its either radiator , engine cooling fan, coolant leaks, thremostat, or worst headgasket. Acura are popular for radiator being broken at the seam of the radiator.So check for leaks, now if the cooling fan doesnt come on the yes it will overheat, so the operation has to be monitored a engine cannot go pass 215 F there it can be damage, now the thermostat need to open at a cerain degree . or it will cause overheating and not allow cool fluid to enter the engine area. and the radiator cap must be able to sustain a certain pressure in order to keep the car from overheat, water boils at 110 F so a radiator cap rated for your engine must be specification for every one pound of pressure it increase the boiling point 10 degrees. 210 is fuel control you should not exceed this temperature. radiator are popular for getting plugged internally.

Car overheated and antifreze was boiling and spewing over until engine cooled. 2004 jeep liberty 2wd. Thanks!


Need to know what caused the overheating, possible broken serpentine belt, thermostat, water pump, radiator, fan clutch, cooling fan motor. After motor has cooled down fill radiator with water till full, look make sure serpentine belt not broke, start engine run about 5 minutes, turn off, let sit 3 minutes, start engine look at temperture gauge is it over half way of gauge, Do you have a fan blade driven by water pump or electric fans?

Were are the sensors for the engine fans in a nissaan sentra gxe


One of the common things that gets missed at times is the radiator is down in cooling antifreeze. The car will act as normal during the warm up cycle and then the temperature guage will rise and then it will slowly come back down as the thermostat opens and/or the electric cooling fans come on. In actuality the engine is overheating, but it is not boiling over. The level of abtifreeze is at just the right level of lowness that you experience this phenomenon. After the engine cools off , (DO NOT REMOVE WHEN HOT - YOU CAN GET SCALDED WITH BOILING WATER/ANTIFREEZE)), remove the radiator cap and check the level within the radiator and also the antifreeze reservoir level. You can buy a 50-50 mix of antifreeze and water that is ready to put into the radiator. If the level in both the radiator and reservoir are correct, you may have a bad thermostat or some other problem.
