Do the cooling fans turn on. If not, you need to start there. If they work you may have a plugged radiator (will require replacement)

Check the radiator pressure cap and switch on the heater as your car idles to allow coolant circulation then fill the pipes if they have bubbles if not then U need to check the cooling fan is coming in if not disconnect the harness connected that is on the thermoswitch if the fan runs on high then your problem is on the thermoswitch.If the fan doesn't turn check the fan relay or fuses

SOURCE: 1999 volvo s70 overheating

Well My car I changed the head, and the head gasket. The gauge says the engine is overheating, but it is not true, the coolant is perfectly normal and no hose is inflating or whatsoever but the fan is always running.. You can blow your head or head gasket because the sensor is faulty ???!!!! Please I need an answer because I'm using my car for a couple of days even if it says its overheating ( It is not really overheating there probably is a faulty sensor.. ) but i'll stop using it if you can blow you head gasket because of a faulty sensor... !!!

SOURCE: air lock in coolant system

I think I would try getting the radiator flushed and cleaned. Check for blockage. Also you can change your thermostat. Last but not least check the expansion tank cap and make sure it is okay. If everything is okay the cold air could be because of a clog radiator core. Sometimes there could be a partial head gasket breech causing the presure to back up. Do a compression check for each cylinder.

Make sure you have gotten all the air out of the system by running the car with the cap off for a bit.. also make sure the radiator overflow if at proper level.. next look at your radiator and see if it is plugged up with trash bugs what ever this will slow your cooling big time.. also look between your radiator and your air condition condensor and make sure its clean also there can be trash in there causing it to heat .. also check belts make sure they are tight.. really sounds like you started with air in system and system might be air locked needing to run a bit with cap off when cool. dont take cap off when hot ... make sure over flow is full also... thanks and holler if you need more.

Sounds like there is still air pockets in the coolant system, let idle to full temp with the cap off and the car on an upword angle to alow air to move then while engine running and coolant if needed to hot mark on the coolant tank.

99 mercury cougar v6 2.5L, temp gauge is reading hot after thermostat change why? is it a air bubble or is it a bad temp. sending unit? any other ideas? please help


May be a defective thermostat or place in the wrong direction. If it's properly installed, might want to check the fan operation which may be producing the overheating.
If fan is good, one way to remove air in the coolant system is to run vehicle while all heaters on. take extra coolant and stop along the way to top off if needed. While driving, keep listening for the fan to begin running when vehicle reaches high temperatures.
If you continue to experience overheating, may want to take to a local known repair shop for further troubleshooting.

1998 Chevy Lumina 3.1 overheating - top radiator hose collapses on throttle, then opens up when you let off.


With the engine cold remove the radiator cap. Start the engine. Watch the coolant. If you see bubbles constantly perkulating out of the coolant than you most likely have a head gasket that has failed. If you don't see a constant perkulation of air bubbles it probably wouldn't hurt to replace the upper hose and see if the problem is resolved.

I paid for a radiator, water pump, thermostat, and heater core to be put on my 2001 aurora and the engine is still bubbling I got an engine block test done and it was okay. Three Mechanics have tryed to...


does your cooling system hold pressure when it is hot? Is there the chance that either your surge tank or radiator cap is defective? It has to hold pressure when hot to function properly, and without a thermostat you will have issues with the car operating in open loop, causing damage to the engine and catalytic converter, not to mention possibly not getting heat in cold weather. You are aware that these engines (called 'shortstars') have issues with head gaskets-was it recently overheated. and is that why all this work was done? I have a 2001 Aurora with a 4.0, you have to watch the coolant level like a hawk on these engines (and on the 3.5, a sawed-off 4.0, I have one of them too, a 2000 Intrigue). If you are getting air pumped into the surge tank, you have a head gasket issue, or a cracked/warped head)-check your fluid level when the engine is cold, like after it sat overnight-fill it SLIGHTLY above the full cold mark, and start it, let it run with the coolant cap off until it gets to normal operation temp (half way up)-you may have a hard time getting it hot enough though, without the thermostat. Once at full operating temp. make certain the level is again SLIGHTLY above the full mark on the surge tank. If you are getting bubbles at this point, your block is not the issue, but the all too common head gasket(s) are-good luck, and if you get new head gaskets done, make certain you are using new bolts for the heads.

My 1998 Intrique is heating up what is he first thing that I should check?


the first thing to replace would be the thermostat and use a good quality 195 degree temp. has the coolant been changed in the last 5 years? GM vehicles from 1996 to present use Dexcool coolant. it should be flushed out and changed every 5 years even though it is an extended life coolant. it is possible the radiator is getting plugged up and that will cause overheating.
have the radiator flushed out when you change the thermostat and use a 50/50 mix of dexcool and water

Car is overheating changed thermostat didn't help


Without more information, it is possible you have a air bubble in the coolant or a blown head gasket. Check the exhaust for smells of coolant (sweet) and the oil for signs of coolant as well, it will look like a milkshake. If you notice an excessive amount of visible bubbles in the overflow tank then more than likely you have a head gasket problem and the cooling system is being pressurized from the leak. To bleed the coolant system, remove the radiator cap and start the car and you should observe small bubbles rising to the top, again if there is an excessive amount then you have a head gasket problem.
