Overheating wont start

could be one of many things , i'd start with getting the OBD codes read and then work out why its overheating , is the water pump working ,if the top rad hose gets hot and the bottom rad hose is a lot cooler then there's more than a good chance the water pump isn't working , do you have to keep topping up the coolant ?keep me posted if you wish

My displays a transmission over temp, wont start

you over heated it.
my guess is the tranny TCM found the overheat before
you saw the dash gauge go overheated?
or about 1/2 the time the engine block runs dry of coolant
and the gauge dies. (it cant read AIR)
and then the tranny sensor never lies. it can read hot no matter what.
which engine options
DEAD COLD engine
is the RAD (cap off) full to the top with AF?
AF= anitfreeze.
is it. and is it at 50% mix? ratio? $2 Prestone tool finds this cheap.

I've intrepid car has overheating problem has thermostat, working water pump, and keeps overheating

Might be blown head gasket. Is there oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil? Either of these would tell you that.
Also the exhust can get into the coolant and make the coolant low all the time.
I had two Chrysler products that the exhaust forced coolant out and had a bad head gasket.

My car was overheating so i took off the thermostat and replace a hose that was leaking but now car hasn't overheat yet b water comes out through reservoir tank what could be the problem now?

the water is getting to hot even though its not overheating because you need a thermostat to trap the water in the radiator to give the water a chance to cool down then the thermostat opens and the cold wanter enters the motor and the hot water in the motoer enters the rad. to cool down. with no thermostat, this doesnt happen it just circulates and warm up to the temp it warms up to and is at the same temp in motor and rad then to hot will come out the overflow, as a resualt, you will wind up losing antifreeze then wont have enough antifreeze in your engine then will damage your engine.Put a thermostat in and a water pump. fix it right or you will damage your car.

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive

Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.

Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Flush good.

Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.

Stop leak can plug everything.

Also.......not likely causing over heating....but your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.

2002 chrysler 3.5 overheating - new rad, water

It can a the first stage of blowing head gasket.

Fill your coolant tank to the full mark when it's COLD.

Start the car, and pay close attention to the tail pipe for a small puff of white smoke.

After 15 minutes,If you do see any vapor then take the car for a 8 minutes drive.

Park the car and listen for bubbling sound from the coolant tank,

If you see bubbles coming up then you will need a head gasket change real soon.
