Re: OVER HEATING AND NO WATER IN HOSES
Temp sender unit may be faulty! as this activates the fan!
Check thermostat & hoses & their clamps aswell! as you may have a leak somewhere.
check if oil is clean & not milky!
milkyness indicates head gasket leak or warped or cracked head!

usually overheating problem arises from radiator plz flush the radiator with the radiator cleaner available in the market with directons available. usually you shake the cleaner open the cap and pour the full content into the radiator and drive for few hours. leave it to cool and rince with fresh water a couple of times till the cleaner is totally removed. also wash with high pressure water the fins of the radiator as it gets choked from flies and insects. pour fresh coolant in the radiatorthe the other reason for this heating could be faulty thermostat located at the lower portion of radiator which restarts the when the engine hear exceed the prescribed temperature and it ***** dow automatically when cools. it goes on. WARNING:- RADIATOR FAN CAN START ANY TIME SO PLEASE KEEP YOUR HANDS AWAY FROM THEM AS THEY CAN SLICE YOUR FINGERS COMPLETELY. other problem you can view is when the engine is cool and the radiator is cool open the radiator cap and then run the engine to see if air bubbles are visible- coming inside the radiator. if that is the case then you have to go to the workshop and get the engine overhead gasket replaced. other problem could be traced like when you come home after a drive check all the wheels if any of them are heated up excessively they could heat like an electric iron so be careful if that is the case then get your brakes overhauled. ecsessive gas charged in car ac will also heat the car.
Suspect #1 - air in cooling system. These can require several bleeding attempts to get all the air out. If the overflow reservoir is old and cracked inside, it will keep getting air back into the system.
Suspect #2 - radiator plugged internally with mineral deposits from hard water or silicates from using the wrong coolant. Does the radiator feel hot all over when the car is hot?
Suspect #3 - radiator plugged externally with organic material or the hair from the long haired cat that sleeps in your garage. Put a light behind the radiator and see how well you can see through it from the front grill.
Suspect #4 - failed fan clutch and/or failed electric fan. Does the overheating happen on the highway, or only when stopped or moving slowly? Does the electric fan kick on whenever the air conditioning compressor kicks on? The most common failure point on the electric fan is the relay.
A defective new thermostat is possible but unlikely.
check your hoses see if when runnig they close up,if not loo for vents for letting are out of the system if ther is a air pocket inyour coolant system it willcause the engine to overheat make sure to run the heat when refilling coolant system. if this fails to solve your problem look for a gurgling sound coming from the rad or over flow tank look for this when engine is cold and runnig if you do hear this then you might have a blown head gasket.you can buy a blown headgasket detection kit from your local auto parts store if you do hear or see this symtom.
You obviously have a leak somewhere. Check the radiator hoses and heater lines for seepage. It is passable you may have a head gasket problem. If you pull the plugs and see one white or a lot lighter than the rest it could be water ingestion in that cylinder. But check all the hoses first.
many things could cause the overheating. broken water pump impeller, stuck thermostat, clogged radiator, inoperative cooling fan on the radiator.
i would first check to see if the cooling fan on the radiator is working. when it reaches operating temp (or surpasses it in your case), see if the fan attached to the radiator kicks on. if its not on, then either the fan has failed or the temp relay to kick on the fan has failed. also, make sure the connector is plugged in.
after its at operating temp, turn off the car and feel the radiator. if you feel cool spots, then it is clogged and needs replacing.
wile under the hood and car is off, feel the upper & lower radiator hoses. if one is hot and the other is cool, then either the water pump (actually the impeller on it) has failed and is not circulating coolant through the radiator. a common problem in this model.
but it could also be the thermostat. if failed, it would not allow coolant to flow & circulate.
hopefull one of the above items is the problem. good luck.
