Thermostats are to be installed one way only, so the heat of the engine opens the thermostat. They can be installed backwards, and cause overheating. The thermostat may be stamped to tell you which side faces the engine or Radiator.

The radiator cap can cause this...be sure your fluid is cold full...also try burping the upper radiator hose to release air in system...hope this helps.

How do you know it's overheating , You going by the dash temp. gauge ? They go bad too ! Go to harbor freight an buy a inferred heat gun an see what the temperature is at the upper radiator hose at the engine ! Have you have it checked at a repair shop or dealer ! How about the temperature sensor , you replace it ? Is the check engine light on ?

Silly question: do you have enough liquid in the system?

    Yes

  • Vladimir Frolov Mar 30, 2015

    if you changed/checked everything (what about pump itself?) then the only one thing comes to my mind: if you have ever used muddy water instead of coolant or used rad liquid sealant to fix small cracks/leakages then radiator itself can be clogged.

  • keith smith Apr 02, 2015

    I brought a new pump & had it put in problem

  • keith smith Apr 02, 2015

Observe the car's engine as it runs for 10 minutes to ensure that the electric fan for the radiator is coming on, if not either the fan relay, fan's coolant temp. sensor, or the fan itself is bad, try the relay first it is the least expensive, if this is the type of vehicle that has no electric fan replace the clutch fan.

SOURCE: no heat 2006 pontiac torrent awd

your air damper or diverter may not be working.this is basically a mechanism that opens a flap by your heater core to control the amount of hot air that comes out.There is a rod that this flapper pivots on and if this rod is broken or the motor that operates it is not working you will either have heat all the time or no heat at all depending on which position it broke at.I know because my torrent has the same problem.To fix my problem they have to remove the dashboard to access the heater core which amounts to major $$$. I hope your problem is an easier fix. good luck

2006 dodge magnum keeps ova heating, I done change pump, radiator, thermostat, coolent system & temp Sensor still have over heating problem, I got to cut the car off & it wnt start back up till cooled


Check the pressure cap and change the coolant if over two years old. While the cap is off see if there any bubbles or oil traces in the coolant, if so you have major engine problems, possibly a bad head gasket.

It takes a good 20 to 30 minutes of driving to reach normal operating temperature. The thermostat was changed but no change in the time to heat up


First, turn on the heater full blast and confirm that the heat temp takes that long.... I am suspecting that your temp sensor is bad and giving you a false reading.....

My2006 magnum keeps over heating


The thermostat could be causing this problem. Once they age they have a tendency to "stick". It's not an expensive fix. Give that a shot first. If after it is replaced it continues to overheat, start considering the radiator or the fan that cools the radiator the problem. Hope this helps, good luck!
