Pull your radiator cap off after it cools down and then start it up and watch the flow in the radiator. If you see vapors coming out, cover the opening and see if its building pressure? If it is doing this you might have a blown head gasket which passes the heat directly. Are you loosing coolant level?

You may have a blown head gasket but first check the air flow between the radiator and the A/C condenser , just this past week I had a 91 camero come in, after a head gasket job. Customers said it's still the same and Fire stone can't find the problem one quick look told me no air was being pulled through the radiator and after removal of the top radiator plate reveals a plastic shopping bag holding back the air. Car now runs fine.

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.

SOURCE: RADIATOR FAN

If you've got the hydraulic fan, check to see that the solenoid at the power steering pump is plugged in. My 1993 3.0 had this happpen, and that's what was wrong. You have to pull the front passenger side wheel off to access the pump. Just stick your hand up in there and feel around. You'll find it. One way to check is to let the car idle and turn the a/c on full blast. You should hear the fan start to roar after a few seconds. If it doesn't, then check the solenoid wire. Worked for me!

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.

Check to see if you have flow through the entire radiator.If part of the radiator core is cool to the touch when the engine is at operating temp, this indicates restricted radiator flow. If the entire radiator core is not allowing water to flow through, cooling will not be at all efficient. Also a good idea would be to purchase a block tester. available at napa and other reputable parts houses for around thirty dollars. You remove a small amount of coolant, and put the tool in the radiator, or pressure tank opening. If there are any combustable gasses present, i'e' exhaust, this would indicate a head gasket breech, (or maybe worse) and would indicate that it's time to stop looking for a simple problems, and get proffessional help. Good luck to you!

My 2006 scion xb keeps heating up already change the radiator,water pump, thermostat, fans and temp.sensor but just keeps heating up already took it to 5 different mechanics just cant find the problem


How are you determining that it's over heating ? Temp. Gauge ? Do the cooling fans turn on ? 5 different mechanics ? Did any of them hook up a scan tool , to see what the coolant temp is . Use a inferred temp tool to see what it shows for temp.

How is the interior heat? Is it normal or are you only getting about 1/4 of what it used to be like when it was newer? Are you running a summer thermostat or a winter thermostate? The thermostat may be defective and not closing all the way and needs to be replaced or the Coolant Temperature Sensor may be Defective and needs to be replaced. I love these cars. Good Luck and have a good XMASS.

My temperature gage is going over in the red and my heat is not


Check the sensor which controls the cooling fans that cools the radiator it prevents the engine from over heating and allows the temp gauge to stay at normal range.recently had problems with my 2003 impala overheating it was the sensor had the thermostat replace as well.

Coolent light and check engine light


Your thermostat will not affect the heat in your car. This is controlled by the heater core which is pulled from coolant from the engine where the coolant will be the hottest. Your thermostat opens and allows the coolant from the engine to circulate into the radiator and the coolant from the radiator flow into the engine. A thermostat is cheap and easy to replace. The sensor should be a fairly inexpensive and easy replacement as well. I would change out the sensor first because bad thermostat would create an overheating problem.
