My 2004 kia rio its overheting just when i stop


Check that the fan is starting and working OK. When you drive the air hitting the front of the radiator may compensate a malfunctioning fan. When you stop without the fan working the radiator gets hotter and your dash tells you that there is overheating.

If the fan is working replace the thermostat that may be starting the fan too late. Also check fan fuse and relay.

Do not drive the car in this conditions. Overheating can easily cause damage to the head gasket. An head gasket problem will require a more expensive repair.

My 2008 Acadia is overheating. About 6 months ago it overheated but cooling levels were fine. Nothing was repaired and everything started working as expected. Yesterday, it started overheating again. ...

it sounds as though your acadia may not actually be overheating, it sounds more like the tempeture sensor is bad, if its "froze" at a certain reading this could fool your computer, you should be able to replace this part for around 20 or 30 dollars. hope this helps

I have a 1999 pontiac gt and its overheting but only the tempature guage goes all the way up what could it be?

You need to make sure you have coolant in it Jimmy. Make sure your fans are kicking on. If they are not, check the fuse. Make sure the radiator is working and check for leaking coolant. If all these check out, the most common problem would be the thermostat. It may also be your water pump. With the guage going up, you could have a bad coolant temperature sensor.

Heater core

Has the car overheted ? If so did you install the thermostat ? Check the coolant level. Low coolant level causes the car heater to not work. Also always bleed the cooling system everytime you add coolant when doing work on a car's engine. They have a bleeding screw near the thermostat housing or on the housing itself. After getting the engine to operating temperature, turn that little screw counter clockwise. This will release the pressure in the cooling system. Keep it open until only coolant comes out. If you cannot find a bleeding screw, do not open the radiator cap. But slowly turn the cap until you hear the coolant start flowing into the coolant reservoir .
