Why still over heating, replaced all last year, water pump, stat, flushed rad

Possible causes....Poor internal circulation or heat exchange due to blockage or corrosion/scale.
Likely causes.... Electric rad fan (if so equipped) failing to turn on, or broken fan belt (if so equipped), or broken, damaged or missing fan blades, or blockage of air into radiator (lots of bug guts, plastic, paper, debris in general), or damage to radiator itself. (cooling fins are mostly bent over restricting air flow or circulation, scale build up inside of the radiator...not always "flushable" preventing good heat exchange.
One or some of these maybe causing your grief. Good Luck.

08 equinox low heat

Low or poor heat usually means your thermostat is stuck open. To check with a cold engine, remove the rad cap and start the engine look inside there should be no water flow, if its flowing the stat is open.

My 2005 equinox runs at a high temperature in idle and the heater doesn't work properly.

could be because the water doesnt seem to be circulating .... remove the pump next and check the impellar ,,,, after that if its ok i would flush out both heater rad and engine rad to clear any blockages

Over heated now wont start. also wire was melted to coil replaced them

Over heating is a sign of poor coolant circulation (1) cooling fan on rad not engaging, (2) coolant bad, (3) water pump is on its way out, (4) not enough coolant

We have replaced the transmission, bypassed the heater but the aztec is still over heating and running into the over flow what else could we check

i assume by transmission you mean thermostat.the other things that can cause over heating is the cooling fan for the rad may not be working(you don`t say),the coolant flow through the rad may be poor,the water pump impeller may be worn to the point that it can`t circulate coolant properly or you have a head gasket problem which you can get a block test done on the car to eliminate it.

Changed thermostat and added coolant but 1997

could be waterpump?
i was going to say rad fan,but if so heater would be hot.
lack of coolant will make heater core to blow cold,if engine heats up with full coolant,usually means poor or no circulation.
water pump?
run engine with full coolant,at operating temp.with rad cap off and look in rad cap hole and see if there is movement of water inside rad.
[rad fan will not come on if water is not circulating through rad water pump?]

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive

Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.

Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Flush good.

Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.

Stop leak can plug everything.

Also.......not likely causing over heating....but your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.

Poor circulation

Maybe the thermostat is in the wrong way around, The top is the arched part where you see the spring
