If it's overheating in a matter of minutes from cold, it is probably not the fan or fan switches. If the gauge goes up that fast, it is often because of air in the system. When hot air hits a water sensor, the gauge will skyrocket. make sure the radiator is full and open any bleeders in the cooling system (if it has any) to purge all of the air out. Also, try turning on the air conditioner -- that should start the cooling fan -- to see if that makes a difference. One more thing: just because a part is new, don't assume it's good. I once saw a car overheating with no heat and a full radiator (classic water pump) with a new water pump on it. We took it off and realized the impellor (blades) was loose on the shaft! Good luck.

Did you change the thermostat?
And you may have a plugged up radiator.
The fan sensor should be by the thermostat--I an=m guessing at that.
But you need to check the therostat for sure.

Overheating after being driven for 45 minutes


Year make and model helps. Codes also. Some trucks have a fan on the water pump, some don't. If yours does have a fan on the pump, it is most likely a clutch fan. This can be bad also. A blown head gasket usually puts out white smoke from the exhaust. And will have a misfire.

Make sure your radiator fan is working or cutting on.It could be a faulty fan relay or fuse and it could also be a faulty coolant temperature sensor.

I have 95 Chevy Lumina. March 2010 I had water pump, head gaskets, intake gaskets, thermostat replaced. Unfortunately I am having same problems as I did before all these parts were replaced. How can this...


Was the car over heating before the water pump and head gaskets were replaced? Putting in a new Radiator will make it run even colder.and take even way longer than the one hour it is already taking to warm up.The computer in the car commands the engine cooling fan On/Of at a predetermined temperature.It receives this data from monitoring engine sensors such as the engine coolant temperature sensor.So if it is defective and the computer is not recognising the defect it thinks that the engine is running hot when it is realy running cold and will command that the cooling fan be on.Resulting in the fan running in 24-7 as you put it. If you want the engine to warm up faster and the cooling fan to operate normaly then I would replace the engine coolant temperature sensor and the relay for the fan circuit as well. If you need to talk to me further about this you can use the reply box below. Please let me know how this goes for you and I hope this is usefull for you. Good Luck and have a good XMASS.

I put on a new clutch fan and do not know how to reset it to the thermos stat


Clutch fans don`t need to set, they just screw onto the water pump, the heat from water pump travels into it to turn it on.

The main reason for the over heating of the audi tt is to do with the water pump. The propeller within the first type of water pumps is made of plastic. This was to prevent corrosion, however was never designed to last longer than 5 years. What you need to do is purchase the new style water pump. These new style water pumps have been designed with a metallic propellor which should resolve the overheating. Let us know how you get on.

1998 cavalier heats up when idleing. Fan comes on but still heats


Hello senior, whenever the coolant system is opened up there's a possibility you could get air in your system, only way to get it out is by using the bleeder valve, check the coolant temperature sensor it may not be working properly, it tell's the cooling fan when to kick on and off, the condition of the drive belt is also another factor, along with the tensioner and tensioner pulley. it sounds like a problem with the water pump, the cooling fan, or air in your cooling system, to get a good inspection of the water pump fin's you have to remove it.
