I have a 2000 Chrysler LHS with the 3.5 engine. It began overheating and diagnostic code said it was the fan relay. Replaced, and continued to overheat. Water pump and radiator replaced less than 1 year...


Hello Lia, you did all the right things to fix it but there is some thing elise going on ,if your sure that ,thermostat is not in back wards and its not defective (they do get stuck )and fans are running on time the only thing left is the start of a head gasket ,eaven thoe coolant is clear and no coolant in oil, .did you purge all air out of motor, (no joke) you'll see 2 air purge valves on top of motor ,they look like brake bleeder valves,one on right side and one on left side traped air will cause over heating as well.
I really hope this helped you in some way .

Car is overheating when when driving for around 15 to 20 minutes. if car is thrown in neutral when driving the temperature drops immediately. thermostat has been replaced and system has been bled properly....


Is it overheating to the point of boiling over, or does the guage or light just come on? What i am suggesting is that maybe it's the heat sending unit, or temp. sensor that is faulty. If the thermostat is working, the water pump is working, the coolant isn't low, the fan cuts in and out, and the rad isn't plugged, i would almost say it has to be the sensor. Let me know.

Replaced waterpump, still overheating lights comes on


Check to see if there is water in the oil...If there is water in the oil then it could have a head gasket problem..Did you ever replace the thermostat? If it is stuck then it would also cause overheating...Excessive exhaust backpressure because of a clogged catalytic converter could also cause overheating..Also check belt tension and condition. A loose belt that slips may prevent the water pump from circulating coolant fast enough and/or the fan from turning fast for proper cooling...Another thing it could be is a faulty Water pump -- Any wobble in the pump shaft or seepage would call for replacement. In some instances, a pump can cause an engine to overheat if the impeller vanes are badly eroded due to corrosion or if the impeller has come loose from the shaft. The wrong pump may also cause an engine to overheat. Some engines with serpentine drive belts require a special water pump that turns in the opposite direction of those used on the same engine with ordinary V-belts... Also check the Fan -- With mechanical fans, most overheating problems are caused by a faulty fan clutch, though a missing fan shroud can reduce the fan's cooling effectiveness by as much as 50% (depending on the fan's distance from the radiator) which may be enough to cause the engine to overheat in hot weather or when working hard.

Overheating


Hi,
If the car is overheating it could be due to a thermostat which is stuck in the closed position, a failed water pump or just a slack belt driving it. I think there will be a "little" tube carrying coolant from the engine to the coolant expansion tank, and if you run the engine with the filler cap removed you should see water coming through that pipe IF the rump is running. A failed water pump will not necessarily leak, it just won't pump the water round the engine.

Always take care when dealing with a pressurised cooling system on an overheating engine - the water may well be above boiling point.

If you run the engine without coolant the cylinder head may well warp and repair bill will be huge.

Hope this helps you a bit. D

2000 sebring. Overheats with air conditioning on.


I just had my coolant flushed and my radiator cooling fan replaced. The car was slightly overheating and would "gargle" in the coolant bowl after I turned the engine off. It turned out to be the radiator was clogged up on one side.

I went full tilt and replaced the radiator, water pump, thermostat, radiator cap and timing belt. I have 85,000 miles on the car and it was about time to do these things anyway. It is running like a new car now.
