Hello chris_rus968: My name is Roger and I Will help you. The problem could be any of the above plus others. Start by filling the coolant system while the engine is cold. DO NOT DO THIS ON A HOT ENGINE. After the radiator is full leave the cap off and Start the engine. Does the coolant blow out of the radiator? By this it will be the instant the engine starts. If it does you have a serous internal problem. If it does not blow out the coolant put the cap on.Check for any coolant leak you might see.If the coolant was rusty colored I would suspect a damaged water pump.Let the engine warm up if you see no leaks. Observe the coolant fan they should come on around 112 degree FF .If not the problem could be the fan or the temperature switch. As you can see there are a lot of things that can cause a problem. Try some or all of these. Should you need further help please just ask. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

My Toyota Camry over heats it's not the radiator 2004 6c

Sounds like the cylinder head gasket is away. Did you run without any water in the radiator or did engine overheat prior to the problem?

Can my 1999 Cadillac Seville concourse overheat by mixing too much water with antifreeze??

Theoretically yes. Antifreeze has a higher heat capacity than water. Basically, a liter of antifreeze can hold more heat than a liter of water. I dont think it would be enough to cause an overheat though

Is water suppose to be coming out of spout on radiator....I put water where coolant goes n it just shoots out?? And car overheats

car over heating because thermostat faulty its stuck closed not opening allowing coolant flow from engine to climate need 50/50 antifreeze and water.straight water will boil away at 212 degrees. engine can get hot as 225 degrees you need add coolant to raise engine coolant boiling point temperature.

Overheating and no heat

With what you describe sounds like the hot water is just heating up but not circulating and cooling correctly. Possible causes, airlock, faulty water pump, check fan belt tension, not broken etc, blockage in engine water way or collapsed hose. Are you losing water at all? Head gasket?

Got a 2001 bmw 316 e46 just put a new expanshon tank on an coolant and its over heating the fan doesn't come on and it boils the coolant and steam comes from under bonnet ?? Any idea where to start (

If your losing coolant water pump may be leaking, not enough coolant will make it overheat. If not that, thermostat may be bad stuck open or shut. Hope this helps

Overheated while driving. heater started blowing cold air shortly later. Got it to work and engine very hot. ticking from the radiator. Reservoir of coolant "boiling over." Can I get it to...

I had a 96 Pontiac Grand Am and it had a similar problem, my water pipe disconnected, and that caused my engine to overheat, but since it wasn't sucking heat out of the engine like it was supposed to the "heat" was cold. It shouldn't be a bad fix. but the engine is going to overheat and that's going to kill your head gaskets. fix it before your head gaskets blow, mine was going to cost 2500 dollars for the new head gaskets, eff that, new car. So hurry before it happens to you.

hope it helps.

Over heating with water in it

if its just water it will always overheat, the system runs over the boiling point of water, you need a misture of anti freeze and water to raise the boiling point, then do a pressure test to test the integrity of the system
