Look for a loose belt, or a bad electric cooling fan or fan clutch. Open the radiator cap, if you see bubbles while its running then you may have a vacuum leak coming from the thermostat housing. Check the ignition timing, timing that is off would cause it to run hot and finally look at the catalytic converter because it may be plugged up and causing your car to run hot.

I have a 99 oldsmobile alero v6.... i changed the thermostat,water pump,water jug,head gaskets i have no cracked heads are leaks. why is my car still running hot???


If your radiator is of copper, the cooling fins could be deteriorated to a point that it falls apart just by touching them with your fingers. The back side may look OK but it deteriorates from the front by rain, wind and debris.

99 deville head gasket leak?


A head gasket leak is usually indicated (among other things) by continous overheating of the motor, and subsequent loss of coolant.
It can also be indicated by the presence of engine combustion gas bubbles in the coolant resevoir.
Ensure the coolant system has no external leaks, such as faulty hose/s, radiator etc.

Ensure motor tune or other motor mechanical condition is not the cause of overheating.
I assume the motor is actually running hot.

Check cooling fans are operating ok (as necessary when car warms up):- if not check
1) fuse,
2) relay operation,
3) heat sensor switch.

Check/replace the thermostat,
Check the coolant pressure cap is serviceable & of correct rating,
Ensure cooling system is correctly filled, bleed off any airlocks as necessary when re-filling,
Ensure radiator hose on suction side of waterpump is not collapsing at engine revs above idle (due softening),
If the motor has been severely overheated, the head gasket could be blown - look for combustion gas bubbles in the coolant resevoir.

OVER HEATS


Fill over flow bottle right to the top and run engine....watch for bubbles.
If you see bubbles you may have a bad head gasket or a possibly a cracked head.

This allows combustion gases into the cooling system and the system just can't dump that amount of added heat.

Why is my Durango running hot


Possible blown head gasket. Collapsed radiator hose. Bad water pump. Have a cooling system pressure test done. Possible transmission probem if automatic.

The cooling fans on my Grand Am GT1 do not go on causing the car to run hot.


You can start by checking the fuse for the cooling fans, the relay and the coolant sensor. If you turn on your AC, the fan should come on automatically. If the fan comes on when the AC is on, the problem isn't in the cooling fan. Then it may be the intake gasket or a head gasket problem. The red antifreeze used in these models tend to eat away the plastic intake gaskets.
