That takes a couple (2-3) hours.
But the question should be: Why does it overheat?
Possible, your cooling water is frozen, so it can not circulate.
However, try to warm up the cooling water, to get it liquid and add antifreeze. Without cooling and starting the motor you can destroy the motor in only a couple minutes. So it is important making sure the cooling circuit is working.

  1. Depends on if the motor seized after it over heated, in that case it will never start.
  2. If it still cranks and nothing internally came apart it should crank after it cools several hours.

2004 Suzuki Verona driver side window rolls down and motor continues to run until it gets hot and shuts down window will not roll back up only down

only a real person repairing the car can determine what is wrong.
Guessing will be expensive.
excess friction in the system (my guess you mean the electric motor in the window overheats, does it?) or just on hot days.?/?
the motor can have shorted, Armature windings (yes, bad motor)
and can overheat, and fail. the motor can fail 5 ways or more, no point
in posting them all, but one failures cause the motor to use too much current, so the technician measures this current and if high
makes sure the guides are not sticking, in the window frames.
you have 2 choices, guess, or test. there are many tests, get the shop manual and learn them or trust your ASE to find the problem.
sometimes a bad motor damages the switch, controls from excessive heat, these are what we call cascade failures.
replacing only the obvious bad switch invites a new switch with damage. All electrical is like this. find the primary failure first.
the correct the collatral damage last. (and tight frame first)

Engine overheats

Run volts from battery to fan motor....if it turns problem is either in the fan motor sensor/electrical connector(corroded, etc.) or if equipped with a fuse possible blown but doubtful.

You can not run any vehicle without a thermostat. Check to see if the coolant fan comes on?

1991 honda civic, overheats, changed therostat, stiil overheats....the fan doesnt go on? already checked fuses.they are ok, do u think its realy switch for fan or just a bad fan do i find...

You should be able to test the fan motor for continuity with an ohm meter! No meter available? You can use 2 jumper wires to test the motor for a test run[be careful]. Hook up the motor straight to the battery with the connection un-plugged!See if it will run!

What could make my 03 civic ex overheat and cool down then overheat again while losing heat inside??? Already replaced radiator, water pump, thermostat.... motor

your heater has apparently restricted the coolant flow....hopefully a good system back flushing will cure the problem....use a flush obtained from a parts house....I would buy the hose kit for flushing as well...good luck to you

Cooling system problem

well it might overheat because air got into system, replace the thermostant and then fill system, run van keepin an eye on the temp, it will start to run hot because coolant has not filled the motor just the radiator, when it starts running hot shut it down, wait 3 minutes and start, now this is done with cap off,after restart coolant should get sucked in get filling radiator as needed,may get messy but got to bleed cooling system. hope thius helps.

No heat or air

Check the blower motor speed control resistor pack is ok.
(The resistor pack is usually located in the blower fan ducting in the air flow).
Check condition of electrical connection terminals on the blower motor circuit - these terminals pass considerable current and over time may fatigue overheat and loosen.
Check operation/replace any blower motor control relay,
Check the blower motor will run if +12v directly applied to the blower motor.
Check operation of the blower motor speed control switch is ok.

1991 Ford Escort fan will not turn on and motor overheats.

some water from the tail pipe is normal but if the car is running bad then it is possible the head gasket is blown. on the escorts that i have owned i have found that the main relay is usually burned and needs to be replaced. it is possible that the fan is dragging and burning this relay up if this relay is good then you may be better off taking it to the electrical shop.
