There are a variety of other possible reasons your car is overheating, including:

Water pump
head gasket leak
fan not running (if electric)
fan not running at normal speed (if viscous coupled)
parking brake dragging
Engine tuned too lean

I would start at the radiator
patching closes of cores and if it is old then there will be more blocked cores
you should mention the make year and model and if you have electric fans or viscous fan hub in you question

01 town and country I changed the front heater core but no heat does that means I have to change the rear heater core too?Plus I had a leak on the radiator but I sealed it with epoxy and there no leak...


If the coolant level is right and the water pump is working, then you probably have an air pocket in the system. Pull a vacuum on the entire cooling system and then see how it works. The epoxy patch on your radiator won't last, so start saving for a new radiator now.

Over heating


Hi, My advice is take it to a radiator shop. Sounds like the thermostat needs to be replaced. Then the radiator needs a leek patched. Good luck.

The radiator in my 1998 Ford Expedition is leaking from the side. As soon as I put coolant in the over flow reserve it comes gushing out of the radiator. Can this be fixed?


Hi, the side of the radiator is plastic, if its leaking there its getting ready to leak other places to, you need to replace radiator. Patching the problem will only waste your time.

Engine over heats changed thermostat temperature sensor and it stills over heats


Try adding more coolant to your radiator. If this doesn't help, check under your car for leaks immediately after you pour the coolant. If it is leaking then you may need to patch the radiator, tighten the hoses, or get a new radiator. Hope this helps:)

The same thing here...


Check that the Radiator cap is good have it pressure tested check the hoses for blockage near the ends they will have the hose separate at the ends and can block water flow you can't see it without removing the hose, also have the radiator rodded out if there is any buildup of calcium inside the radiator it won't cool, it will start heating and continue heating up. And did you replace the fan clutch?
