What would cause the hydraulic cooling fans fluid to leak out when i drive the car and my car overheats and how can i fix it with hardly any money to my name?

the problem is most probably a failed oil cooler in the radiator tank
this allows oil into the cooling system that causes the engine to over heat
you can buy quality radiator/ block cleaner and flush the system yourself but the fix is to replace the radiator tank with the oil cooler inside
blocking off the lines will only cause transmission over heating
the only cheap option is a good radiator from a wreckers as replacing the tank can be almost as expensive as a new radiator
ring around and get prices that are close to what you can afford and make a decision from there

No heat in 2003 buick lesabre but engine overheating

The first thing you need to do is check the cooling system coolant level. If it is low or empty, there is not sufficient coolant to cool the engine or to transfer through the heater core to supply the cabin with heat. Fill it up and check for leaks. Once leaks have been repaired, change the thermostat, engine oil and oil filter. If it is full, you may need to change the coolant due to its age, as well as the thermostat, engine oil and oil filter. The reason for the oil change is due to the thermal breakdown of the oil in overheating conditions. Also inspect the water pump to ensure it is being driven by the belt. You may also have air in the cooling system that is causing all your problems. Generally only happens when the cooling system is improperly filled. Make sure you add the correct mixture of coolant and water. Incorrect ratios will cause you similar problems.Coolant protects the cooling system and the water dissipates the heat.

Oil is mixing in water container causing car to over heat.What could be wrong?

The oil cooler is located under the intake manifold. The cooler has probably opened up and allowing the higher pressure oil into the cooling system. After replacing the oil cooler you should flush the cooling system.

Can being low on oil cause over heating

oil has three functions

1.) lubrication
2.) cooling
3.) keep engine clean

so yes... low or dirty oil will cause the engine to run hotter than normal, but I have never seen it actually cause overheating

Engine rapidly overheats,coolantvery near boils

Most likely the thermostat. The heater bypasses the thermostat. If the thermostat is blocked the only cooling is via the heater matrix. To check start the engine with the heater off and put your hand on the thermostat housing when the thermostat opens you should feel the housing get hot. If it doesn't the thermostat is faulty.

Why is my cars still over heating when i have put anitfrezze in it

the problem when a car over heat is that it can be the cooling system . the anti frezze can do to make an engine stop over heating .But if still continue ,then you have to check or concentrate on the thermostat and the cooling system of your car . then the oils every 6 months you have to change engine oil it can be the other cause of engine over heat.

1997 audi A4 heater blowing cold air

You probably have a leak in your oil cooler. This is causing the oil to bleed into your cooling system causing the "thick brown liquid". This in turn will also cause your engine to over-heat since the cooling system is contaminated.

Overheating and change engine oil ... oil was changed one week ?

it seems like the radiator of your car needs attention. check for coolant level in it, when its cold. if les add some coolant and then see if the problem persists.
--than there are chances of chocking in the coolant pipes, may be they not reached to engine..  
--Check the chock,, that it is not turned on. 
--May be sum loosing nut in engine.

Heat gage says cold

My guess is that the engine was having an overheating problem and one way to deal with that is to remove the thermostat to gain some extra cooling.  The over heating could be caused by a clogged radiator or leaking head gasket which can allow exhaust to enter the cooling system and cause it to bubble and overflow.  Also, oil can get into the coolant.

Solution: get a compression test on all the cylinders.  Expect to need a head gasket replacement.

Engine is over heating and blowing air into coolant resivor and boiling coolant

The blowing of air into the coolant resevour is caused by a leaking head gasket. What's happening is the cylinder is blowing air into the cooling system causing this to happen.
