You may have a bad oil temp sender causing a false reading on the gauge

Car overheating


You may have a blown engine head gasket. Check your oil to see if it is milky because water is getting into the oil, and check the water to see if oil is getting into the coolant.
If you have either of these, you may need to have a new head gasket for the engine, and hopefully you do not have a cracked engine head.
This will require a fair bit of work to fix correctly. Your local garage or mechanic may be your next call.
There are some products you can use in the coolant for either of these, but it is only a temporary fix.

I have a 1991 Mercedes 300e. I have replaced the thermostat and the radiator but it is still overheating. Want do I look at next


what motor do you have how many miles? is there oil in the coolant? coolant in the oil? oil on the ground? what is your idea of overheating on the gauge? 80-103 C is normal...

at any rate, check the water pump. with the engine off, pull on the pump pulley. if it moves or wiggles, replace it. check the temp sensors on top of the head. inspect them for broken wires, corroded connections, etc.

did you properly bleed your cooling system? trapped air can cause overheating.

also if your fan clutch is bad, it will overheat. along with improperly function aux fans and their sensors/switches/relays.

to check fan clutch take some cardboard and carefully touch the fan with it while the engine is running. if it stops, replace the clutch.

after it all, if your engine has overheated, youve probably warped your head and are leaking oil. if thats the case im sure you know the drill. machine shop, blah blah blah

Sounds like your cooling system has an air pocket in it, and is not completely full. Try this. When the engine is cold. Open up the cap and fill it as high as it will go. Then start engine, Check level again and top off again with the heater on full heat put cap back on. Watch your temp gage. When temp get to around 215-220 the fan should tart up. Have someone keep idle slightly elevated at fast idle. Your temp should syart to lower. As soon as fan shuts off, and still hold a fast idle slowly open up the cap again, and top off the system again. This should have the system completely full, and prged of air. The make sire your reserve tank is at the proper level. See if this takes care of your problem. Your heater is the highest thing in your cooling system. If there is air in there, you will not get any heat. That would explain why you only get heat while driving..

Did you check the fan for normal operation? Does the fan come on if you turn the AC on(Should turn on regardless of engine temp with AC on, otherwise it will turn on and off as needed). Did you check if the radiator was still full any tyme between the previous repair and the overheat? Water pumps on older chrysler and mits products do occaisionally lose impellers.

White coloured engine oil, overheating


White oil means water or coolant is leaking in via Head Gasket Failure or a crack in the head. Along with repair - be sure to have each cylinder compression tested to see if there is a crack that has developed.

Overheating engine: termo guage at the middle during idle


The Temp gauge should read in the middle of the gauge at operating temperature. This is normal. The radiator fan should come on after idling (not driving) for 20 minutes. The fan should also come on when you turn on the AC. Are you experiencing overheat problems?
Please reply if you have overheating issues.

Water pumps can stall out, but do you have air trapped in system.
Had you recently had the system "open" to replace hose, thermostat, temp sensor. Some Ford and GM have a bleeder screw on a high point in cooling system to bleed out trapped air.

Check your trans fluid color. Since the trans cooler is built into radiator (automatics)

IF the engine is overheating the trans CAN overheat
IF the trans is overheating the engine CAN overheat

They share the same cooling source and trans fluid gets hotter than oil, but yet it has a wimpy cooler built into radiator. Maybe add trans oil cooler to system.

Also outside temp affects the cool down rate of the radiator, ie...hot air trying to cool down hot radiator/engine is less effecting than cool air cooling hot radiator/engine
