It is probably the temp sensor switch, usually located near radiator

Several possibilities, including blockage in coolant tubes of radiator, damaged or slipping impeller on water pump, blockage of air flow through radiator, inoperative radiator fan(s), damaged head or head gasket...

Does the radiator fan come on? If not, problem could be bad temp sensor or fan motor or wiring.

Have a 96 Buick Park Ave. In Aug I changed the thermostat because the temp gauge showed the motor was running cold. nothing changed. In Sept I had the water pump replaced because it started leaking. M


Is your 3800 producing normal heat? If so, the temp sensor is probably bad...If not, try replacing the radiator cap...if your system has air trapped inside, it usually runs hot, not cold...the heat is the key to functioning properly for you...Your radiator is a 4 stage huge system that normally cools very well...if you have heat, I still think your temp sensor is bad...ask to see one at your parts store, will help you to locate it. Hope this helps.

Heater fan runs with ignition switch off where is fan relay located


I think the fault is with the radiator temp censer , it acts as a on off switch, located on the radiator tank.

If you have a viscous fan hub then have it replaced as it is not drawing air through the radiator at idle or slow speed (crawling traffic). Check that are no air locks in the system as they will cause heating problems.

2000 Nissan Maxima Overheating


Hi. Your radiator fan motor may be seized. Should ingage between 95-100 degrees when you parked on idle after achieving full working temp. If it doesn't, check fuse first and than relay responsible for cooling fan( you can find cavity in your owner manual. Let me know. The reason you car is ok while driving is the air going thru your radiator. When you stoped or parked for longer time with no speed there is nothing to cool your radiator. Fix it asap or eventually will cause engine over hit and seize.

Car temp went up air condination blew hot while stuck in traffic but once traffic moved everything was fine again


Your electric fan for the radiator is not working. When sitting in traffic you will need the fan for air flow which cools the radiator and air conditioning condensor. When driving fan is not needed do to air flow from driving.
