SOURCE: Temperature running hot pulled thermostat still

Have you checked to see if your fans are coming on? have you checked for any hose leaks? what about the cap? (sometimes the cap looses the pressure that it is suppose to have) is the passenger floor board getting wet? (heater core leak). Have you flused the system?

Overheating coolant boiling out into reserve tank


you have a blown head gasket.. doesn't have to have coolant in the oil for a blown head gasket... if hoses are rock hard when running then you have exhaust leaking into the coolant via a blown head gasket...

What is causing my car to run hot with a smell? its 199


The smell is most likely the anti-freeze you smell. You may need a new overflow cap, which over time will not hold pressure like it should and can cause you engine to run hot and lose coolant. It could be the water pump leaking, a hose leaking. Can you see where you may be losing coolant at? How often does it run hot? Do you have to re-fill after it runs hot. If you not having to add coolant, then your thermostat may be bad or the water pump. But losing coolant could be the overflow cap or a hose, and let's not forget the radiator could have a small hole or split somewhere. It's a matter of finding out where or what are it is leaking in.

Found a little coolant on dip stick car not


Head gasket is usually the number ONE culprit. Hard to say without doing a diagnostic. Are you sure it is coolant and NOT condensation? Is it there when you check the oil HOT and COLD? How much coolant are you losing?

The heater is not blowing hot air and its running hot


If the coolant level is low, this is exactly what will happen. Not enough coolant to circulate through the heater core, and the engine will run hot, and when it loses enough coolant, will overheat. Hope it's that simple. Let me know, if that's not it I'll help further.
