Will not have a thermastat make suv overheat its 2001 ford escape

Leaving the thermostat out will not make the engine run hot.
Some possible causes are low coolant, faulty water pump, or leaking head gasket.

Car overheated Iin November of 2010. Turned it off, cooled it down, added coolant - no further problems. Today, May of 2011, red warning light came on 10 minutes into drive. 50's outside temp. ...

Sounds like a bad water pump or radiator. Make sure the radiator fins arent clogged or inside of radiator, water pump not circulating the coolant properly will also cause overheating, old coolant will not properly dissipate heat efficiently and may need flushed. Also make sure the coolant has a 50% mix of water as the water does most of the cooling not the antifreeze. Hope this gives you some good places to start.

Low coolant light stays on. Changed sensor. Still comes on. Tech says oil leaking into coolant contaminating sensor. Says this is a common problem with this car. Is this a head gasket problem, and will...

I had a similar problem. Replaced head gasket, but low coolant light stayed on. My problem was air in the system. A flush and fill kit may work, however, I had a local shop do a "flush and fill" and the problem remained. What I did... With vehicle running, and radiator cap off, bring engine to operating temperature. Increase rpms slightly above idle until coolant can be seen moving in radiator (thermostat open). Add small amounts of coolant, keeping the radiator level just below overflow hole in cap area. In my case, after about 15 minutes at slightly above idle rpms, a large pocket of air escaped. I topped off radiator, installed cap, and let engine cool. Problem has not returned in last six months. *Note coolant is VERY HOT, and if rpms fluctuate, coolant will expel quickly from radiator. Also, when the air pocket escaped, coolant also sprays out. Use caution to avoid being burned.

Can i still drive my 06 chevy impala with a warning light of engine hot a/c off?

It's not a good idea to drive a car that is overheating. Permanent engine damage can occur. You need to find out what is causing the overheating problem. First, check the coolant level. Do this with a cold engine to avoid burns when you remove the radiator cap. If the fluid level is low, replenish with a 50/50 mixture of anitfreeze and water. Be sure to use an antifreeze that is compatible with aluminum. With the radiator full, run the engine until the top radiator hose is warm to the touch. Carefully remove the radiator cap and observe the coolant for several minutes to determine if it is flowing through the engine. If the coolant does not seem to be flowing, then you need to replace the thermostat. If you replace the thermostat, it would be a good time to flush the cooling system with a good commercial product such as Prestone Super Flush. Follow the directions closely. Refill the cooling system with the correct antifreeze. Avoid Dexcool antifreeze. It has too many problems associated with it. If the warning light is still on, you may need to use a scanner to clear it. Drive the car normally and watch for any signs of overheating. Keep a close eye on the coolant level. If it was low earlier, that could mean you have a leak. Let me know the outcome.

Stop Safely Now warning, engine shuts down

Man i have this problem too! Your engines overheating. It says, High Motor Temperature too right? Its fucked up how it just stops no matter where you are. Hectic Downtown, Highways, Middle of Access roads. Just to name a few of my experiences this past week. I hate Ford for that.

You should check your coolant if you haven't had it changed. Check if the fans are running. Do you have a leak? Check the two coolant resevoirs under the hood on the bottom left. The front one is for the engine and radiator cooling, the back resevoir is for the Motor Electronics cooling. If there's fluid in there, try changin it with new coolant, 50/50 mix for both resevoirs. Don't use any Life extending additives. Make sure the fluid you get is **** yellow not orange. Once you've had that changed, and it still does it, could be a stuck thermostat.

Haven't fixed mine yet. Good luck with yours!

Have 2002 Ford Escape, Where's the Radiator Cap??

This is where you fluid goes. If I were you, I would stay away from those sealants. But yes you can put the sealant in the reserve, but it;s best if you drain half the water out, pour in coolant and then re-fill. This gives it a better chance to flow throughout the system. Sometimes these sealants can cause more harm than good in the long run.

BELOW list is compiled from our staff with a more likely cause of overheating.

Radiator cap failure. Must be able to handle 15 psi tested.
Antifreeze failure. Has the coolant been tested or changed in the last few years?
Does the cooling fan
Clogged radiator.
failure. Thermostat's do fail, you you have any memory of changing it?
Head gasket. This problum you would tend to never be able to get the air out of the radiator, lots of small bubbles. if this is your problem seek provisional help this problem only get worse not better.

Hope these tips guide you to the solution to your problem

Overheating on ford bantam

there are three probable causes that may result to overheating one inadequate circulation of coolant within the cooling system. The radiator is clogged with dirt some stems are closed.try to flush the radiator using rad flushing fluid. Second improper bleeding of trap air within the cooling system. Third the water pump blades are worn out inadequate circulation of coolant.

Coolant light comes on for about 1 minute on 2003 Ford Escape. Do I need to add coolant or flush?

This usually means add coolant.
With the engine cold, take the radiator cap off. Its probably low on coolant,fill it up and put the cap back on.Also check the overflow reservoir and if needed fill it to the cold line. You probably have a coolant leak that needs to be fixed.

Overheating again

The heater stopped working because there was no coolant in it. Your real question is where is the water going.

Have the cooling system pressure tested to be sure you have no leaks. You said you had the radiator flushed, I suspect some of the tubes are blocked, it should be dissassembled and rodded then cooked out. Not just flushed. You problem is in traffic, low speed. The car starts to over heat, it blows the water out of the overflow, the level is down, the heater stops working, then you are out of water in the engine and overheating.

BTW ground the wire that goes to the warning light sensor and be sure it lights the warning light. If htis is the case the sensor is bad. I assume when you turn the key on but before starting the light does work then, correct? That means the bulb is ok, that does not check the sensor.

Good Luck!
