Question about 1987 Peugeot Liberte

1 Answer

Engine overheats my engine keeps overheating, i top up with water and release the breather to make sure no air is trapped, but the water disappears after a few short journeys. however on long trips if i keep at the speed limit or lower it seems to be fine. if i'm stuck in traffic that can cause problems too. where i put the oil in seems to be clean of that whiteish gunk and no oil seems to be in the radiator either.

I had a similar problem on a car a few months ago and this sounds like a faulty thermostat , you can remove or replace it and see how that goes

also check that the small return hose to the expansion tank is not blocked

My chevy Venture van still overheating after radiator replaced, temp gauge replaced and fans fixed. WHY?


You may have air trapped in the cooling system. This will cause overheating. When you fill the system, there is a small brass air purge valve above the coolant pump and another on the thermostat housing. These need to be loosened and trapped air released when filling the cooling system.

1990 BMW 525i 2.5L engine overheats after rplaceing water pump, stermostat,fan clucth,radiator


There's trapped air in the cooling system.
  • You need to remove the bleeder screw on top of the radiator when adding water to the expansion tank.
  • With the engine running, pour water into the expansion tank till you see air go out through the bleeder screw's hole.
  • Just keep adding water until no more air bubbles come out then just put the screw back in place.
  • Then fill the expansion tank to it's normal level/line.

I have a 1999 oldsmobile that keeps overheating i had the radiator the thermostat the water pump and top hose replaced not used but brand new a broken head gasket has been ruled out i need help asap


Check hand brake is fully released. Why head gasket had been ruled out ? Run engine till warm, carefully open rad cap, let engine idle, look for BUBBLES IN COOLANT. IF YOU SEE ANY NO MATTER HOW SMALL, CHANGE HEAD GASKET.

Engine overheating i have replaced the radiator has plenty of water


replace thermostat.then bleed coolant system, this is how you do it.fill the cooling coolant system with 50 / 50 dexcool and water to raise boiling point,straight water will evaporate boil away cause engine to overheat catch fire thats why you need 50 / 50 mixture antifreeze and water.to bleed coolant system first fill coolant system until coolant stay at the full cold mark on the the coolant overflow jug,then you start engine allow it to idle,place the heater and ac control in any ac setting except max and the temperature control to the highest setting,run engine until lower hose to water pump is hot. with the engine hot run the engine speed up to 3000 rpm and allow it return to idle, repeat this 5 times. slowly open the bleed valve on the thermostat housing or look for bleed valve at the water pump heater hose.open bleed valve for 15 seconds to expel any trapped air.then top off the coolant as necessary,and when top radiator hose hot thermostat open up.keep adding cooling to overflow until coolant level stop at full cold mark dont over fill coolant.if engine seem like overheating while looking at cooling gauge turn off engine wait a while until cool off add more coolant until coolant level stay stable and dont drop any.when open radiator overflow cap use large rag over the radiator cap to keep from getting scald open radiator cap a little at a time but dont open radiator cap until engine cool down first.replace the radiator overflow cap, thermostat,and engine coolant temperature sensor and check the cooling fans fuses and relays see what happens.

Overheating in Diahatsu Charade 92. EFI 16 Valve.


Did you burp the coolant? If not, you have air bubbles in the system that are trapped behind the thermostat, keeping it from opening. Run the car at idle until it's 3/4 of the way to overheating, then shut it down and let it cool. Pop the radiator cap and the air bubbles will burp out. Check the level of coolant in the radiator and expansion tank, top off as needed, and repeat a couple times, and you should be good to go.

2000 Olds intrigue overheating


i have a 2000 olds intrigue thats been overheating alot lately the other day my drain plug for my radiator came on the way to work so i lost all my antifreeze on the way, i got to work and wound getting another plug to replace...the one that came out...topped off antifreeze...anyhow i go home and car overheats on the way home...i took it to a radiator shop today and they checked for, leaks, checked the water pump, pressure tested it...and they told me that the only thing they found was a airlock, but however the guy did recommend taking it to a mech and having it checked for a blown headgasket, so i go home today and i noticed my temp gauge going up and down on the way home it would get hot then cool down then get hot again...the car did eventually start to overheated so i pulled over and let the car cool down...i know this is getting frustrating, so do you have any recommendations or solutions as to whats cause the car to overheat.

Rough idle,overheats .


It could be a bad thermo stat, I just got a 96 camaro and have yet to do too much with it but my prior car a 87 honda had all sorts of overheating issues. It would have a loping and rough idle and overheat a quick fix was a pressure release bolt on the top of the thermostat. I would let it idle and while idling i would loosen the bolt on the thermostat and water would start shooting upward. Basically air was in the system and theis would allow the air mixed in to be released. I would keep a hose/antifreeze handy to top off the radiator as necessary. Im not sure if the camaros have the same thing on them but you may try that out if they do! Good luck!

2004 dodge ram is over heating, the thermostat and fan clutch have been replaced.Doesn't(over heat) in cool weather,but will in mod. weather if driven over 70mph or hilly terrain due or increase of rpm,and...


Water pumps can stall out, but do you have air trapped in system.
Had you recently had the system "open" to replace hose, thermostat, temp sensor. Some Ford and GM have a bleeder screw on a high point in cooling system to bleed out trapped air.

Check your trans fluid color. Since the trans cooler is built into radiator (automatics)

IF the engine is overheating the trans CAN overheat
IF the trans is overheating the engine CAN overheat

They share the same cooling source and trans fluid gets hotter than oil, but yet it has a wimpy cooler built into radiator. Maybe add trans oil cooler to system.

Also outside temp affects the cool down rate of the radiator, ie...hot air trying to cool down hot radiator/engine is less effecting than cool air cooling hot radiator/engine

1995 dodge intrepid overheating problem


I have had trhis problem for months. Replaced everything and just found out it was air in the system. I purchased a tool take sucks all the fluids out of the cooling system into a bucket along with any air. Once the all the air is sucked out you reverse the the flow and it sucks the coolent back into the reserve and it works great after that. Has not over heated for weeks.
