It is cause of the radiator jam, just clean it with a water spray, it will clear your problem.

Replaced thermostat and new coolant on 2004 suzuki forenza due to overheating problems doing driving on freeway or street as soon as i leave home. Problem stop one day then the next day i had some rough...


there are only 2 ways to overheat,
and vast causes !
1: engine making too much heat.
a: eg. cam/spark timiing way off. eg retarded timing does that.
2: Cooling system failure.

just 2. finding out which one takes tests.
I do my engine checks first.
A; compression. ok
b; timing right.
C: egr closing,
d: cat not melted closed down (huge backpressure, "guaged"

then when happy my engines happy,
I then attack the cooling system.
Thermostat new, and not put in wrong,
wax side to input side,RTM, bleed hole high (jiggle pin,etc)
I use an IR pyro gun $15 to check ALL rad tubes top and bottom
so see if one or more is clogged,, this is easy, ask.

does it over heat parked at a read light
does it never fail moving fast.
these are the top clues.
only fails A/C on?
fans all work, some have 3 on A/C cars up front.

the question is, , is the stalling caused by overheating or is only a victim. only you know that, as you are driving.
if you see bad running before the oveheat, then its just that.
is the car pinging?
engines that ping overheat and blow pistons.
engines that overheat can ping.
but in the latter, it overheats FIRST.
see?

My hynday elentra 1999 overheats when the car is not in motion


Yes. There is a low speed fan and a high speed fan. Obviously, the slow speed fan usually only works in cool conditions but as the ambient or fluid temperature rises, the high speed fan is engaged. It's sounds as though you have a malfunction fan.

Sounds like you could be low on coolant, even more so because the air starts to cool down, check coolant level with engine cold, never open a radiator when hot.

Overheats ive tried the obvious solutions and it still overheats any suggestions


note if it overheats on the freeway or in city driving. If it overheats soon after you leave the house then in has to be the thermostat. If it overheats at city driving where there are lots of stop and go driving or while you are parked with the motor running, then check the radiator fan function properly. If it takes a while to overheat and tend to do it when driving on the freeway, it is a clogged/dirty radiator. If it looses coolant due to a leak, then it will also overheat. The least likely cause which don't even pertain to newer car is a retarted timing. A retarted timing causes a car to loose noticable loose of power accompanied by overheating. A retartded timing is usually common in older car where timing is adjustable by turning the distributor. Your car is exempt from this.

Classic signs of a bad water pump. When on the freeway, the circulation of coolant through the system is increased due to the speed but once you slow down, it will tend to overheat. Please post back with any other questions or just to rate the solution. Thanks very much!

2001 Saturn SC1 Overheats when AC is turned on


Hello donezero,

Thank you for choosing fixya.com.

Try replacing the thermostat first. I see you mentioned that it overheats with the A/C on, while in neiborhood streets (or lower speeds). Also, with the vehicle parked, and the car running, raise the hood, and watch to see if the fans are coming on. If not, check the fuses in the fuse box. You may have a blown fuse. Examine both top and bottom radiator hoses to make sure there are no cracks, holes, or bubbles. If they look like they need replaced, replace them. Also, check the fuse and any relays that may be associated to the A/C pump - there should be one of each. By changing the thermostat, you eliminating it right away for being the reason of overheating. After diong all this, and the car still overheats under these circumstances, replace the temperature sensor, which is located on the intake manifol (usually close by the thermostat ) driver side of engine, toward front or center. (may be on passenger side, depending on engine). If this does not take care of the problem, consider a certified mechanic for further assistance.

I sincerely hope this information is helpful in getting your car (A/C) running properly. Let me know if I can be of further assistance in this matter. Thank you again for choosing fixya.com.
