Defective thermostat, and if you put straight water in it will will evaporate faster than normal coolant. I would get a new thermostat, get a coolant flush and put the correct type of coolant in your car. I believe it is the orange kind for aluminum engines.

I have a 97 Plymouth Neon 4 cyl SOHC. I recently bought it and it keeps overheating. I replaced the thermostat, temp coolant sensor, radiator cap, and flushed the radiator twice. I also took it to a shop...


CHECK WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE IF LEAKING. BECAUSE OF SHAFT BEARING FAILURE CAUSE CAR TO OVERHEAT. MAKE SURE COOLING FAN WORKING CHECK FUSE AND RELAY.SCAN CAR TO MAKE SURE THE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR WORKING.IT CONTROLS FAN OPERATION.BESURE YOU ARE USING CORRECT COOLANT MIXTURE.YOU NEED 50 % ANTIFREEZE AND 50 % WATER. TO RAISE BOILING POINT.TOO MUCH WATER IN COOLANT SYSTEM WILL CAUSE CAR TO OVERHEAT.

Only 2 parts remaining are the thermostat and waterpump. Always start with the thermostat when diagnosing an overheating problem. If the car is overheating constantly under all conditions and coolant is backing up into the reservoir, it's very likely to be the thermostat. If it only overheats at low speed or idling, it's more likely the waterpump.

My 1994 Acura Legend is still overheating.


Well if it were blowing antifreeze out into the jug you probably had a cracked head. When you pull the cap off does any water try to come out when you start it now? Yes it could still be a thermostat causing problems now but he probably should have changed it when he was changing the water pump. Did he replace either one of the heads or just a head gasket?

No heat


check for air bubbles in the system also check the pressure cap and have it tested also squeeze the upper radiator hose together and if it doesn't open up in your hand right away the water pump could be weak work on getting the air bubbles out first before going to the water pump
