Check the condition of the seals in the radiator cap, the coupling hose to the overflow tank, and the tank itself for any cracks. Make sure that water isn't ending up in your oil supply. You might have head gasket problems that allow combustion gases into the cooling system forcing out water and causing overheating. A well-equipped shop will have a test for that problem and can advise on repairs. Good luck!

No es necesario , solo toma cuidado si ves que el tanke de agua esta bajando de nivel cada 2 semanas es por que SI tienes una fuga, pero si no tienes ninguna perdida no es necesario poner agua cada dos semanas lo normal es revisar cada 3 meces o cada ves que veas que tu termostato en el tablero te idique q el ahuto esta mas caliente de lo normal

Temperature rise

Because the heater is getting cold, that indicates low coolant. It leaked out and the leak needs fixing, but as soon as the engine cools off, refill the coolant and keep it full. Never add coolant to a hot engine without the engine running. Your electric fan might not be working. The fan moved air through the radiator and air circulated the same way when the car is moving. Check that.

If you can see your water pump, feel around the neck of it for moisture. Any moisture there means the pump leaks and needs replacing. Some cars have the water pump behind the cam belt. You can't get to it without a lot of hard work- get that done by a qualified mechanic if you can't find your leak elsewhere, such as a leaking hose or bad radiator cap.

If your electric fan doesn't work, that might be the whole problem. Usually the fan relay fails before the actual fan. Replacing the relay will solve the problem if that's it. Good luck. China OBD2 car diagnostic tools wholesale on CareUCar

I've changed the head gasket (top overhaul),the thermostat,the radiator cap and serviced the radiator where the water is flushed out and replaced and checked for no leaks but still my trooper over

You have a water leak from the sound of it or water is draining from over heating. Things to check for, leaks at the hose connections, leaks at heater connections on engine, leaks at water pump and any leaks at head gasket. Assuming there are no leaks check or replace or adjust your water pump belt. Take the thermostat out and run the engine without out it. If the problem is solved replace the thermostat recommended for you car. You can also have it checked as well.

Ford Fiesta Zetec engine, year 2000. overheats after getting up to temperature, stays on normal for 1-2 kilometers, then gauge shoots over to the red. I stop, can hear water bubbling, wait till it cools...

1. Check the radiator cap.
2. Check the reserve tank, whether water level is maintained or getting filled. If it's getting filled, there should be a leak in the radiator or gasket

Are you just refilling the coolant resevoir, or also adding antifreeze/water mix to the radiator itself?
When the engine is cool, remove the radiator cap and add antifreeze/water mix until the radiator is full. Leave the radiator cap off and leave the hood up and start the engine and let it idle. As the engine warms up the thermostat should open up around 180 degrees and allow the water to circulate in the radiator. If you see no movement of the water and the heat continues to rise to an unsafe temperature, your thermostat is stuck and needs replacement

Temperature gauge does not go up but car is overheating

The engine block is probably so low on water that the water doesn't get to the temperature probe. The only thing that is effecting the termperature sensor is the air inside the block. You need to refill the system with water. A car cooling system is constantly heating and cooling. Your radiator cap has a pressure release valve. The valve can get weak and let water out the overflow when it's not suppose to and can be part of the problem As the engine warms the coolant expands and the excess goes into the makeup tank. As the engine cools it sucks it from the makeup tank back into the engine. This is all done through the hose near the radiator cap. The amount of coolant you've lost could be caused by a leak in the system or in the water pump. When the engine is cold you should remove the radiator cap and refill the system with water. Also fill the makeup tank to the maximum level indicator. After you have filled the system then start the car and watch the guage and see if you're overheating. You may have to replace the thermostat which controls the coolant temperature. If you still get no temperature or if the coolant level wasn't low then you may have to change the temperature sensor.

Over heating of engine

ok if you have to keep refilling the radiator you may hav a leak check under your car for any coolant on the driveway in the morning, also when you turn on the a/c it draws power from the engine, so what im thinking is that gradually over the day you are leaking coolant once you turn the aircon on its making the engine work harder with less cooling causing it to overheat this is all assuming you are leaking coolant
