First off you need to have the coolant system vaccuumed down, anything after early 1990's you need to pull the air out of the coolant system, or you can cause an air lock in the system. also have the system flushed out to make sure there is no blockages in the system. make sure your cooling fans come on as well. once the system hits arround 180-220 deg. the cooling fans should come on, if not then you need to check the electrical side of the system

Follow the top radiator hose to where it connects to the engine. That is where the thermostat is.

The cooling system electric fans keep running for over 45 minutes. The engine temp gauge was in the normal range. There is no thermostat in the cooling system, the radiator was warm but not overheatin


there has to be thermostat sensor in the system. this is how the cooling fan is controlled.the water pump may be failing by not pumping enough coolant and causing the fan to run.longer that expected

Ive got a 323ci bmw on a 2000 plate with 23000 overheatin


repl temp sensor. run 12v to motor, does it run? could be resistors, they're hidden all over the car, thanks to the ******* engineers that put this piece of **** together. or the fan blades could be blocked.

radiator clogged, did someone put stop-leak in it? Remove thermostat drill two 3/16" holes in it 180degress apart, install 12 degree cooler thermostat.

check to see if fan clutch is working properly.

Overheatin. think it't thermastat but can't find it. deffinetly not an oil or engin problem. also no leaks or breaks of any sort.


it usually is the thermostat if there are no leaks, follow the upper coolant hose on the radiator to the engine block. The thermostat is on the end of the hose. unfasten the bolts and replace withthe new one. ad more coolant if necessary.

Overheatin gin my 2004 suzuki forenza change the therstat in it


Most likely cause of this is a clogged thermostat. Especiallly if you've ever used a sealer in the past, the thermostat clogs with age and a bad thermostat will tend to back up and fill your reservoir tank. Best of luck with this situation and I hope you've found this post a solution to your problem. All the best!

Overheating 94 cutlass supreme


after replacing the thermostat and when you refilled th radiator did you make sure you got all the air out of the cooling system? if so my guess would be you got a head gasket problem.In the long run take it to a shop ,have them check it out and giveyou a estimate.

Overheatin cady 1999


hello jaanutno, did you check to make certain the thermostat is operating? there may also be a weep hole on the water pump and you will see or feel some moisture there, you can remove the thermostat and boil it on the stove to see if it works once it reaches temp if it doesnt open you need a thermostat if it does work put the thermostat housing back together without the thermostst and start the vehicle to see if it will circulate one more thing to check is that the rad cap is proper for the radiator (how many psi) hope this gets you on the road good luck
