The coolant must operate under pressure to raise its boiling point (so it won't turn to steam.)

Replaced the temp sensor? "Burped" the system? Sure the thermostat is in the right way? You can even try running without the thermostat to see if that helps.

Hello,

when the car overheats, is there still water in the radiator?

If there is water in the radiator and the car overheats, then it means there might be some dirt or blockage in the radiator or condenser.

When the car is on the motion, air passes through the front and assists the fan to cool the engine. There are situation whereby air doesn't have free flow because of blockage in the radiator and condenser. Dust and debris can cause blockage. If this be the case, have your radiator washed thoroughly and cleaned.

If there is no water in the radiator when the car overheats, then there is a probably a leakage from the water pump. Or maybe your fan isn't blowing properly. The fan might be blowing weak air.

The above are what could cause your engine to over heat.

So start the check from the radiator. Poor water into the radiator, wait for some minutes, look under the car and observe if water is going to leak. If there is a leak, it might be from the water pump or a leaking hose.

If water from radiator has no leak, have your radiator washed and clean the condenser has they might block air that is suppose to cool the engine.

Also, make sure your fan is blowing properly or well enough to cool the engine.

Make sure you have the above checked thoroughly as they are the major causes of problems like this.

This overheating problem could lead to a burnt gasket and this can dry the engine oil which will eventually knock the engine. So have this problem fixed to prevent further damage that will cost you more money.

Lastly, remove the hose that connects the radiator to the engine, water from the engine will come out. Pour water into the radiator, the water will flow through the hose down to the ground. Do this severally. Now connect the hose back to the engine, pour water into the radiator. Start the engine, the water in the radiator will reduce, add more water till radiator is full.

In summary, the major cause of over heating problem is from the radiator, fan, water pump, blockage in the hose, and dirt in in/on the condenser. These are area you need to concentrate on.

I forgot to mention that the acceleration meter or engine meter on the dash board shouldn't be more the 5. It should be below 5. If it is above 5, it can cause overheating. I hope you understand what I mean.....

Regards.

With the vehicle cool, remove the radiator cap, and manually pump the lower radiator hose until all the air is out of the system. That is how you get the air out of the system. If it is still overheating from there then you should check the fan to make sure that it is working correctly.

Brake noise check led to > low oil > overheating


I do believe it is odd,that it does this right after the front brakes have been replaced,Make sure the calipers,are not holding the front wheels,so they do not move,if they are,then the vehicle will have a hard time moving,and put a strain on the engine,therefore causing the overheating.I do not think he did anything to it to cause the problem,the oil loss,could just be from oil burning,in a long period of time,of course the oil loss,can cause the engine to overheat too,along with other things.
