Runs hot

Try the cheapest, and most overlooked first, the radiator cap, theey do wear our where they wil not hold the proper pressure.
If after installing a new cap it still overheats, have the vacuum checked, a low steady reading would indicate a leaking intake manifold, another possible cause of overheating as the vehicle is running too lean.
Another, but not likely item to check is the temperature sending unit, it just might be giving the wrong reading.

My 3.7 liter 6 V Jeep Liberty (2003) runs hot very quickly. If I speed it cools down but if I am idle or in slow traffic it overheats! The radiator and hoses seem to be fine. There are no apparent leaks...

Chek in this order:

1- The water level in the auxiliary deposit.
2- the ventilator, some one have in the center a viscosity licuit that become hard when the temperature increase, if not, the air flow slowly and the water increase the temperature.
3- the valve, this is locate in the return tube from the radiator to the motor, this one regulate the pass of water to maintain the temperature stable.

I hope this help you.

Car engine is over heating

You didn't include enough info to really help but most times overheating is caused by low coolant level from an external leak, a failed or failing thermostat, a bad radiator fan (electric or clutch type) or fan relay, coolant sensor etc. Any obstruction to air flow through the radiator or internal obstruction can also cause an overheat. Last but not least, either too much water or coolant can lower the boiling point. Make sure you have a 50/50 mix and a good pressure cap of the correct pound rating. (I think yours is rated at 16-19psi)
If you see white smoke from the tailpipe even after warm up, you may have a blown head gasket. In that case you'd need to take care of that but should also find the initial cause (any of the above).
When doing any testing be very careful...opening a system even when not in overheat can cause hot antifreeze to come out quickly and with force. (can make for very bad burns)
If you narrow down the problem a bit and need more specific info, just ask.

It overheats after 20 or 30 miles of driving. Is this a head gasket issue or radiator system leak ?

if it was a head gasket it would overheat long before 20-30 miles if there is no sign of water leaking from hoses etc when the car has warmed up it is most probably the radiator or possibly the water pump or thermostat has called it a day

When driving my 1997 Dodge Avenger its fine until I come to a stop alot water leaks from engine its not from the radiator or the water pump

Is it coming from the over flow tank? is it over heating? what side of engine is it leaking from?front /back/ center/ is it running down engine / check hoses./if it isn't radiator or water pump/you are getting it narrowed down./ feel free to ask again if you need any further assistance. Thank you.for using Fixya.

Water reserve problem

There are few reasons why the 'flow' between reservoir and engine doesn't operate properly. However, in relation to that if you hear a noise coming from the front of the engine I would suspect first the water pump. Have the pump check as soon as possible to avoid engine overheat and severe further potential damages to the engine if my diagnostic is right. In all the cases, if the engine overheats (check your temperature gauge or warning light) stop the engine right away and let it cool down before to continue your road. If by coincidence or bad timing it's really alternator that makes noises it's that the bearings are bad then the alternator has to be replaced.
Hope it will help

What would cause my 2002 zx2 to overheat ?

Faulty thermostat, failed water pump, inoperable radiator fan, low coolant due to leak, faulty radiator cap, leaking head gasket, low oil, major exhaust leak near front, exhaust blockage, or incorrect ignition timing. If there is crust around radiator cap, cap is leaking. How long does it take to overheat? If it runs smoothly when cool, and all fluids are at correct levels, you can rule our head gasket, radiator cap, and ignition timing. If it overheats very quickly and fluids are correct, it is probably thermostat or water pump. If it seems to do better at higher speeds, it is probably radiator fan. You can check this by allowing vehicle to run in Park with hood open. Monitor engine temp on dash. When it is at or slightly above normal running temp, radiator fan should come on. Also note exhaust sound. If it seems loud and overheats gradually, you may have a leak before the converter. If the exhaust sounds quiet, but exhaust manifold is getting extremely hot (may glow red), there is probably a blockage. There will also be OK starting and idle but poor acceleration if exhaust is partly blocked.

Dodge Neon 1998 DOHC Overheats when off the accelerator

It sounds like your coolant level may be too low. When you drive up hill the coolant will tend to flow into your engine block and help to cool it down. When you drive down hill the coolant will tend to flow out of the engine block and into the radiator. This may allow the engine block to overheat. I recommend checking your coolant level. If you need to add coolant use a 50/50 mixture of water and antifreeze. If your coolant level is low you may have a leak. Look for the leak while the engine is hot.

I'd also check to make sure your electric cooling fan is working. Let the engine warm up with the car idling in park. Watch to see if the fan ever turns on. If the fan doesn't turn on the problem could be caused by the fan itself, a fan relay, or a temperature sensor.
