We recently had this problem with our dodge durango 1999. The water pump went bad. We had it replaced and we have had no problems other than the windows wont roll up or down and the air wont blow out of the vents just the defrost area.

If it is the original rad in the truck, I would try getting it flushed. Over time rads will accumulate gunk inside and start to plug up. Get them to "reverse flush" it when they do it. This does a better job because you are cleaning against the normal flow and more of the gunk will be flushed out. It shouldn't cost much more than $100, only takes about 1/2 hour and some new antifreeze. The thermostat has to come out but you have a new one so they should only need a new gasket. Hope this helps.

Could be water pump. If the impeller on the shaft has spun on the shaft then it wont pump water. Have you tried flushing the system?

Did you check the water pump? If the impeller is broken it will not circulate any coolant.

Suzuki swift 2005 1,3 petrol overheated .coolant fluid was boiling but didn't seem to leak .started the car again drove a couple of miles and the same again.


check to see if the cooling fans at the rad are working. if so then change the thermostat and refill the system. if not then have the head gasket checked for cracking. make sure the coolant is circulating if its not it could be a plugged cooling system or even a water pump impeller problem.

Pt cruiser 2008 overheat i change the raditor and the fans , thermostat and still overheat lot of money and still


Has the system been flushed? Correct temperature thermostat installed? Are you getting flow through the radiator? Rad cap sealing properly and is it the correct one? Are the fans actually coming on? Is the temp sensor working properly? Rad properly filled or still have air trapped inside? Water level correct? Water pump working or seized, leaking?

2003 Toyota Hiace 5L Diesel overheat problems resolution


cause of engine overheating is either the rad fan not working well or luck of circulation of coolant through the engine, if rad fan is working well then might be your radiator {rusty,dirt or clog rad core or leak} make sure your rad cap and all hose and clamp is in good condition as well not preventing any air getting in the system or escaping coolant check also or replace the thermostat might be defective

2005 Jeep Liberty 3.7L overheating


it's overheating, for sure,
is coolant levels dropping? cold checked at rad cap?
"pulled over and found a hose to cool the radiator and hose near the thermostat,"
i can not understand this statement"above"
if it overheat only parked, check fan for full ops.
if overheats moving too, wont stay cool moving fast
then:
bad rad cap
bad thermostat , they have 7 year life says STANT. (and why)
belts slipping (to water pump)
rad cores blocked (IR thermo gun it) ask
water pump impellers rust 1/2 gone?

all this assumes no coolant loss, if you have loss, tell where.,
where it leans
ground
passengers toes (foot well)
engine oil pan? milky oil
if A/T TRANS, check it for milky too.

My '99 Tiburon is overheating quite frequently. Coolant is full, but when idling it overheats 3 out of 5 times.. All answers are must appreciated, thanks.


try changing the fan sensor switch on the cylinder head ,also the thermostat ,but again without my head under the bonnet its difficult to diagnose as it coulod be the rad blocked ,quick measure is to turn heater on full on screen and this should cool the engine if its a blocked rad or a jammed thermostat .

Runs hot when rad cap is tight


with the cap off when you start the car does the water shoot out? if so the head gasket is blown and when the cap is tight the water is pressurized by the leaking head gasket and will cause to overheat from pressure blowing all the water out of the overflow. or the head gasket leak is boiling the water in the head and causing the water to overheat.
this is my guess or you have a coolant leak somewhere over the exhaust and it isnt making it to the ground from evaporation.
check for swollen hoses. if you have swollen hoses ill bet they are covered in oil this will break down the rubber and weaken the hoses keep all oil leaks from getting on your hoses at all times as this will destroy them.if you need to replace the cap then the pressure release in the cap is worn out or stuck and the pressure isn't reaching the over flow. replace cap and see if problem is resolved.overheating isn't usually caused by a cap.
but cars differ in design and the thermostat may need the pressure to release properly.
if that doesnt work try replacing the thermostat it is responsible for releasing hot water from the engine to the radiator to be cooled by the fan then close off so the water can cool in the radiator. if this cycle doesnt work properly then the thremostat is usually the culprit.
replace as nessesary.
good luck

Replaced T-stat, engine overheats and no heat


just squeeze the upper rad hose and the heater hoses a few times to work out the air.... not sure how this could be a blown head gasket. what colour is your exhaust smoke ?
