You will need to replace the fan clutch, a faulty fan clutch would cause your Oldsmobile 88 to overheat when you come to a stop. Another thing to replace is your thermostat. Thermostats can stick shut or open, get lazy, or fail to open at the correct temperature.

My Kia Spectra Wont start after over heating


are the timing marks al in alignment if you changed the belt..also some systems require to be reset on the computer if the codes are still present.. take the negative cable off completely with the key in the run position.. then shut the key off and reconnect the negative..turn the key to run for a few seconds to allow all the factory presets to align.. then retry to start..

have you try changing thermostat that causes it to overheat sometimes if you have a leaky hose get it changed i have a 96 corsica i had the same problem fixed hose changed thermostat still was overheating took to a radiator shop they tested it it ended up being that get it tested first if they tell you it is the radiator they are probably gonna charge you A LOT take your time and doit your self if you think you cant do it then once you know is that look around to see who charges you less.

1996 Acura 3.2TL Overheating Problem...


From your description of symtoms it sounds like you have a bad water pump. If the coolant is not circulating properly you will have a heating problem. Sometimes even a new thermostat can stick and cause the engine to overheat. I have seen them fail in as little as a week after they were installed.

Radiator cap allows overheated fluid to backpressure reservoir


Sounds like a sticking thermostat (temp up/down).
In an emergency, you can remove it, but replace it soon.

I otherwise suspect the radiator fan, but it shouldn't overheat if you are on a highway going faster than 50mph (enough air blows through the engine compartment).

Everything else you describe does not indicate any other solution.

I suppose it could be the radiator fan RELAY SWITCH or loose wire to it.

Hope this helps....

Hi.
I would begin to suspect that the water pump is not working properly. Is the bottom radiator hose hot too, and do you have the type of expansion tank which allows you to see the water going round?

Of course, if coolant is being pushed out of the system that would point to a blown head gasket but you haven't mentioned that, so I would suspect the water pump or the belt that drives it. Do you get a squeaking noise when you start from cold?

Overheating


1. start the engine and leave the radiator cap open.
2. put a cardboard cover or a rug in the front of you radiator.
3. let it runs 20 minutes or more, see if it is overheated and see the water or coolant in the radiator circulated or not. If not, as soon as you have already changed water pump. thermostate and check the hoses, no leak, I think your radiator was blocked.


Did you put stop leak before?
