I would have the cooling system pressure tested, this takes a special tool and if there is a leak external to the engine it will show up on the test.

I had a bottom radiator hose blow off my 05 equinox and I flushed the block then the heater core a d changed the thermostat put all new coolant in and still keeps overheating


What about the radiator? Water pump? Can you check for coolant flow? There could be air in the cooling system? Do you trust your temp gage? Are there overheating issues besides the temp gage showing hot, like coolant overflowing, under the hood, somewhere?

Suzuki solio Sterring not smoot and motor is hot


I suspect the belt is lose. Its probably not turning water pump or the power steering pump. You car has an electric cooling fan, but it still won't cool if the pump isn't circulating the water through the radiator. Should be easy to tell. Just look under the hood with the engine running and have someone turn the wheel. You should be able to see, hear and or smell if the belt is slipping

Temp. light comes on when driving, seems to go off when I turn off the air conditioning


There are two possible sources for this; the auxiliary fan is not turning on with the AC and/or the compressor load on the belt (if shared with the water pump) is causing it to slip causing the water pump to lose revs. and water flow.
Have someone turn on the AC while you watch under the hood. You should hear a 'click' as the AC compressor clutch engages and the extra fan should turn on.

My car is overheating when in traffic and losing coolant. The water is going into the driver side floorboard. It is the coolant water, you can smell it. The heater core has been by-passed to see if that...


Check all hoses and also see if your water pump is leaking.
There has to be something that is leaking possibly in the area of your floor boards. I suspect a hose that has a pin hole in it and only leaks under pressure.

2003 impala temp. gage goes high & low and no heat comes out of heater. it continues to cycle like this as I drive. When temp. gage goes up the heater quites.


Have u checked the coolant level? this type of problem useualy indicates the coolant is low, if it is low you need to have the engine cooling system tested for a leak, the coolant goes out somewhere.

VIbration in AC/HEATER fan


I've had mice in my Nissan PU and actually caught one in a trap set on the floorboard; so I know they can get inside. They also knocked some of the fiberglass insulation into the blower motor so it vibrated as it was no longer balanced. You could have a dead one in your blower. Mine was easily accessible from under the passenger side under the dash. Three screws and the motor dropped so I could clean out the fiberglass.
