Check cooling fan operation and get a radiator flush. You might have a blocked radiator. You really need to fix this problem before you undo all the work you've just done.

We recently redone my ford bantam engine but keep on over heating

have a compression test done to check for head gasket. Head bolts bottoming out and not tightening the head down. Check if the thermostat is in the correct way and it has to be in the system. IF diesel check the pump timing as too far advanced will overheat the engine.. If it took some time to do and the radiator was left to dry out check for flow rate through the cores as the mud in the cores drys out and blocks the cores

I replace a radiator in a 1987 bmw 325 and it overheat when i drive slow

Did you replace the thermostat too? The thermostat is notoriously bad on the 80s 3 series. Also, be absolutely sure you added enough coolant. You need to fill the radiator, then wait until the thermostat opens, and add more. If didn't do this, wait until the engine is completely cool before adding the second batch. If you add coolant while the engine is overheated (or completely warmed up) you could crack the block when the cold coolant hits the over heated engine).

Overheat after waterpump replacement

Did you change the thermostat? If not it may be the cause. You can check the thermostat by removing it and immersing it in hot water. If it is working it will open. The thermostat is usually located under the upper radiator hose.

What is the cause of the engine running hot? I have replaced everything including the radiator. The only thing I have not replaced is the coolant reservoir

If everything including the water pump and thermostat has been replaced, you are looking at something other than the cooling system.
Has it been running hot since the engine was rebuilt ? Is the exhaust in good condition ?
How long can you drive it before it overheats, and does the gauge show it hot, and does it boil over ?

Check the new thermostat by putting it in a pan of water and bringing it to a low boil. See that it opens. It is possible to get bad parts off the shelf.

You can get a replacement seat from a wrecking yard and would guess you would pay around $75.00 to $100.00 for the seat or you could go to a reupholster and have it redone like new for somewhere around $150 to $200.

1982 Landcruiser, overheating

I would suggest to check to make sure the fan is not on backwards. I dont know if its possible to even put it on backwards. just check to make sure that the fan is pulling air thru the grill instead of blowing out the grill. Also look into the radiator and see if you can see any lime or sediment in the radiator tubes. It will be white in color.A small amount of scale on the inside of the tubes act as insulation, and keeps the coolant from contacting the tubes and transfering the heat to the tubes so the air passing across the radiator can carry it away. Just flushing the radiator wont remove the lime scale, the radiator would need to be remove and dissassembled and rodded out. I dont think you have a blown head gasket yeti,if it not blowing water out when its cold and you dont have any performance problems, runs fine, just overheats. You might try turning on the heater when it starts to overheat and turn the heater fan on high as it acts as a radiator and see if it cools down indicating the cooling capacity of the radiator is diminished

Car overheating

Most cars have a thermostat on the return to the engine block. It is designed to open and close at a certain temperature range. This is what helps to regulate the water temperature circulating through your engine. These thermostat valves get old, corrosion can build on them, or the coil that's responsible for opening it at the designed temperature quits opening all the way or all together.

Things to check for in your particular vehicle type:

1) Coolant Temperature Sensor
2) Radiator (Make sure have the right mixture of water to coolant ratio)
3) Engine fan (cools water in the radiator)
4) Thermostat (opens and closes allowing water to circulate through engine)
5) Of course, the water pump which you said tested fine.

I can be of more assistance if necessary.

2004 Jeep wrangler 4.0 - 6cyl overheating

I had the same overheating problem in my jeep ! My problem was finaly found out to be the clutch in my fan its a different kind of clutch system it work as this. When your jeep gets warmer the tighter your fan clutch gets .While cool your fan moves slowly. now to test your clutch just warm up your jeep and rev it up a bit if your fan dose not pick up speed then it is sliping.What will come out of this is that you fan will the seez and run full all the time. if you jeep dose not overheat wile moving then it is not your thermo stat period.

u says that u didn't replace the thermostat yet
Your thermostat is sticking. DO NOT DRIVE if the car overheats, you can do some serious engine damage, if you haven't done so already. Get the thermostat changed out immediately.

What happened is your thermostat is sticking. It was stuck and you saw it overheat (and should have stopped immediately). The added pressure from having a stuck thermostat pushes the fluild into the overflow.

The temperature may have gone back to normal if the thermostat "finally" opened. However, since the thermostat is sticking, it is unreliable and I would get it replaced.

Driving when the engine overheats can easily cause gaskets, such as the head gasket to fail and heads to warp. If this has occurred, you're looking at a new engine.
