Check the fan clutch. If its not pulling much air when hot or spins freely when you shut off the engine you need a new one.

Sounds like a gasket issue. Most likely the head gasket.

I have 1999 nissan sentra andit has been overheating. I replaced the thermostat and water pump and it is still overheating. What could it be?


You may want to check and see if the ECT (Engine Coolant Sensor) is faulty. It should drive the temperature gauge and if it's bad, it could be telling you that the engine is overheating when it is actually running at normal temprature.

MY 1997 GRAND CHEROKEE RAN HOT AND SHUT DOWN TURNS OVER FINE BUT HAS NO COMPRESSION WAS RUNNING FINE CHECKED OIL NO WATER IN OIL.SOMEONE SAID IT COULD BE A PLASTIC TIMEING GEAR.IT WATILL THIS HAPPENDS...


If your Jeep ran hot enough to shut itself down then you likely have at least a blown head gasket for starters. The casue of the overheating also needs to be addressed. Timing gears won't make an engine overheat nor will they cause an engine to lose compression.

If there is not enough compression to let it start, then you need to take it to a shop and have it checked out but you are probably looking at a head gasket and probably a warped or cracked head. Hope this helps.

First check your coolant level.

Next make sure your fan is operating properly.

Lastly, if all of those criteria have been met check your water pump, it may need replaced.

Hope this helps.

One thing you could do is start the car with the hood up watch the temp gauge and when it starts getting hot watch to see if the fan comes on if not it could be the fan motor or a fan switch . Hope this helps

350 in a 86 k-5 blazer runnin hot very hot 5 miles it is boiling


You can tell if your water pump is running backwards by the way the radiator fan is running. If the ran is pulling air from the radiator then the water pump is running the right way, if it's pushing air toward the radiator then your water pump is running the wrong way too. There should be a sticker on the fan shroud or on the hood to the direction the serpentine belt should run. IF the water pump is running the right direction, then it needs to be replaced. Good luck and hope this helps.
