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!

SOURCE: car runs hot

CHECK YOUR RELAY IN YOUR FUSE BOX UNDER THE HOOD ON THE DRIVERS SIDE INNER FENDER. THE A/C AND THE HEATER RELAY ARE SAME. CHECK AND SEE IF THE A/C REALY WORKS BY TURNING ON YOUR A/C SWITCH. THE ELECTRIC FAN SHOULD START RIGHT AWAY. OTHERWISE YOU HAVE TO WAIT TILL THE ENGINE ACHEIVES OPERATING TEMP TO KICK THE FAN ON. IF ONE DON'T WORK AND OTHER OTHER DOES... SWITCH THE RELAY AND SEE IF IT WORKS. BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT. $9.00 FOR A NEW RELAY AT CHECKER AUTO PARTS.

SOURCE: Nissan Sentra 2001 - Overheating but no hot air

It could be just air in the system, or it could be the heater matrix just by your feet, fitted central dash, check to see if the two water pipes that go into the car from the engine compartment are hot if there is only one that is then thats your problem, but if they are both cold the problem is more to do with where the water is coming from, please let me know how you get on

Car overheating


Two things to check:

1. Make sure you do not have an air bubble in your cooling system. Easiest way is to park facing uphill and let the car cool off. Remove the radiator cap, start the car and let run until the thermostat opens. If there are air bubbles in the cooling system the should be forced out. Top off fluid.
2. Are you sure that the cooling fan is running? When the car is getting hot, open the hood and make sure the radiator fan is actually turning.

My 2002 ford escape is overheating though we've changed the cracked head


Check your thermostat, could be locked/closed and won't let water circulate through the engine block. Also make sure your radiator fan is working, after you start you car and the engine reaches the proper temp, your radiator fan should kick in to cool the engine.

Changed the water pump and now it over heats


Many people overlook the cooling system pressure cap cheap to replace but often overlooked , the radiator may also be internally restricted. Rad shop would be able to confirm if this is the case. rad cleanout and engine block flush may help. Hopefully this is useful to you.

Heating after pump installed


Change the thermostat if you did not change it already. When the engine gets hot it usually ruins the thermostat. Check the fan and make sure it is turning this is also controlled by a thermostatic sensor that can also go bad when the engine gets hot. Try pressure washing the radiator through the grill and from inside the engine compartment. It may be plugged with bugs. The electric fan is controlled by a temp sensor for startup and shut off. You could have a gasket leak into the combustion chamber without getting coolant in the oil, or oil in the coolant. Remove the radiator cap and look for bubbles coming from the bottom of the radiator when engine is running. When you put coolant in listen to how it sounds. It should gurgle when filling. This is the trapped air escaping from the engine and bottom of radiator. Much like an upside down soda bottle when pouring a drink. Good luck get back to me if you still have problems. And let me know if this solves it..

FORD ESCAPE 2001 CONTINUES TO HEAT


Have you checked the thermo fans are cutting in and out. It may be the switch at the botom of the radiator or someone may have left the wire to the fan disconected probably when replaceing the radiator. or the A/C condensor might be blocked with grass stopping the air flow.

Overheating. Cools when stopped, runs hot when driving. Already replaced the radiator, water pump, thermostat, reservoir, heater core. The fans kick on like they should. My next guess is the catalytic...


It can be a clogged converter. It can also be a blown head gasket if you are experiencing any of these symptoms. White smoke from the exhaust, overfull oil level, a white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap, loss of coolant with no apparent leak, or air bubbles escaping from the radiator with the cap off engine running.

Changed expansion tank but light still on any ideas 03 ford escape low coolant level light on dash stays lightup


bad low coolant switch or still low on coolant.

Engine Cooling The cooling system components are the:
  • engine coolant temperature sensor (ECT sensor) (12A648)
  • radiator (8005)
  • degas bottle (8A080)
  • radiator draincock (8115)
  • water pump (8501)
  • water temperature indicator sender unit (10884)
  • water thermostat (8575)
  • dual speed fan motor assembly
The water pump circulates the coolant.
The water thermostat:
  • controls the engine coolant temperature.
  • allows quicker engine warm-up.
The degas bottle:
  • provides a location for fill.
  • contains coolant expansion and system pressurization.
  • provides air separation during operation.
  • replenishes the engine coolant to the system.
The fan motor (8C607):
  • operates only when the ignition switch is in the RUN position.
  • will not operate with the switch in the OFF position.
The engine coolant flows:
  • from the lower radiator hose (8286) to the water pump.
  • from the water pump to the engine block and the cylinder heads.
A closed water thermostat returns the engine coolant to the water pump; an open water thermostat allows the engine coolant to flow to the radiator.
Engine coolant provides freeze protection, boil protection, cooling efficiency and corrosion protection to the engine and cooling components. In order to obtain these protections, the engine coolant must be maintained at the correct concentration and fluid level in the degas bottle.
When adding engine coolant, use a 50/50 mixture of clean, drinkable water and engine coolant.
To maintain the integrity of the coolant and the cooling system:

Same Problem:Runs hot comes out over flow no leaks


If the anti-freeze is coming out of the overflow you probably have serious problems. One it could be a blown head gasket or blown intake manifold gasket. I not sure what your abilities are as far as mechanical but there is a lot you have to do and have the tools to do it with. That would explain why you are running hot if you had either of these two problems.
