Sounds like a faulty coolant temperature sensor, which also signals fan when to come on to cool engine. If it's a 3.0L it should be in behind distributor area. 3.3L ,3.8L it should be near housing where upper rad hose attaches.

My car is overheating a lot and i dont know why???


do you have a temp gauge or light? make sure the radiator is full, if you have a gauge start the engine and let it idle for about 15 to 30 minutes and see how far the gauge will go up but if it almost reach the dangerous zone turn the AC on and see will the gauge move back down to normal zone if the gauge do move down that mean the cooling fan is working with the AC on but if the gauge do not go down with the AC on that mean the cooling fan is not working you can check the cooling fan by connecting the red wire to the + post on the battry and the black wire to - post on battry and if the fan work it is good then check the cooling fan relay and wiring.

COOLONG FANS NOT TURNING ON? CAR OVERHEATING......


Some vehicle's cooling radiator fan does not turn on untill needed. If your Temperature Gauge is working as far as you know, Try running your car for over 10 miles; the fan should start working. If not, check your fuses. You can also try to directly connect the radiator colling fan motor to the battery and see if the fan works. If not, the fan motor may not be working.

First make sure it is really hot by sprinkling some small amount of water on the block- If it sizzles-your gauges are not lying.

Next, are the fan/fans running? That will be either the radiator temp sensor, low coolant,bad fan or bad fan wiring. First- direct wire the fans to the battery. If their good, connect the wires at the sensor together (you may have to turn on the ig). If they don't run the fan, see if the hot lead to the rad sensor really is hot. See if the ground wire from the fans is good. Follow back any faults to the main fuse block and beyond.

Next would be the thermostat. Is the place top hose is connected to. Put thermostat in some hot water and watch it open. Next in the freezer and watch it close.

Check your oil for water/coolant in quantities undesirable. If there is water in there, you have some bigger problems.

Last- though maybe should be first- is there a cat spread eagle cross your radiator - or a piece of plastic sack or something. Are the AC fins clean can you take a garden hose a spray water thru thu whole mess, what about the inside of the radiator" ? Any pensoil white scum or growth?

That will give you some direction. Hope it's one of the cheap problems

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. The most common issue would be a sticking thermostat or a bad one. You could also have a bad head gasket, valve, or impeller. You have already changed everything else.

Engine overheats.


The fan only really needs to be on when your idleing. That is what draws air through the vanes on the radiator. 120 degrees is not overheating. Given your using your cars gauge to get that reading. Check your temp sensor and there should be a fan relay and or a fan control moudule for your radiator fan. It tells when to cut the fan on and off. If you want there is an after market fan control at local auto parts you can install to control the fan.
