What kind of vehicle? May have blown headgasket (from too hot) or got water in the ignition system which is killing the spark.

Ran hot and died while adding water to rad now wont start


Blown headgasket is most likely. Possibly cracked head/block (water may be in the oil) If you are lucky, the spark plug wires are just wet and killing spark. Hard to tell with no vehicle information.

91 chevy lumina 3.1 starts but when reaches operating temp dies


check your cooling system,the thermostat,water level,test for cooling fan sensors and fan operation,clogged radiator test for 30-50 degrees difference from the top to the bottom of the rad,it could be clogged.Less than 30 degrees it's good.
Check for water in the oil or white/brown foam on the dip stick that would be a blown head gasket,causing you engine to over heat and cut off.

99 couger 2.5L 6 Cyl-temp gauge maxing out, overheating


I will normally remove rad cap when cool. Start engine, set heater in car to heat & turn on blower, if you use defrost setting, the rad fan &/or AC fan will come on, and you don't want that. Then while running with cap off, make sure coolant in rad is an inch or 2 from top of rad, and let it run. When engine gets to normal operating temperature on the gauge, you'll start to see more flow in radiator, and rad fan should come on shortly after, to cool the incoming hot liquid in the rad, that tells you the thermostat opened as it should, and the process starts again, engine coolant gets to temp, thermostat opens, hot goes to top of rad for cooling, and cooler liquid goes out the bottom to engine, etc etc. If your heater is not on while doing this, the coolant doesn't get to heater core in most cases, thus creates an airlock, or will cause level in rad to go down when it is turned on, and thus reduces amount of coolant in rad, plus airlocks in the entire system. So, let it run to the point that the rad fan comes on & off on it's own, about 3 times, while you watch the gauge, to make sure it doesn't overheat, if it does, shut it off and let it cool down & try again. if all appears good, top rad up if needed to an inch or so from top, put your cap on properly, add coolant to proper level in return bottle & try it and see what happens. Remember though, I am assuming thermostat was put in correctly, rad in good shape, fan is working properly as well as water pump doing it's job. If this method doesn't work, get back to me with results.

My 94 honda accord ran hot and now wont start


Sorry. Could also be a cracked head or block. Take the spark plugs out and see if they are wet.  Charge battery and turn engine over with the coil grounded and the sparkplugs out. If water flyes out of any cylinder,you may have to disassemble the engine.

hi my name is paul
these days most cars have a expansion tank under the bonnet or hood
this is were you fill it up with water it looks like a plastic bowl with a screw lid
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES UNDO CAP WHEN ENGINE IS RUNNING OR IS STILL HOT *** DANGER OF SCALDING DO NOT OVERFILL CHECK OUT MAX LEVEL
car manufacturers use expansion tanks because as the water in your engine warms up it expands under high pressure and fills up the expansion tank with excess water when the engine cools down the water cools and it shrinks and goes back into the cooling system hope this information has been usefull
regard paul
