Hi! If the motor gets hot when at stop then its a possible auxillary fan failure or the fan motor is weak. You will need to replace the fan for better air flow. You can find the freon valve underneath the hood left side near the condenser. Theres a blue cap that secures the valve and needs to be unscrewed to gain access to the freon valve. Hope this helps and have a good one!

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.

Last night my car started to die on me when i got off the freeway. It just shut off. Then when i would come to stop lights it would shut off again. So my oil light came on and when i put the oil in there...

Dont know about the prices but the diagnosis sounds correct. Driving a vehicle without oil for even 1 mile will destroy the crankshaft bearings. If you drive it so far that it starts to overheat you've probably totalled the pistons and liners as well with a warped head thrown in for good measure. You can bin that engine and get a replacement motor (which will probably be quickest and cheapest if you buy used), or do a total rebuild. Shop around and ask friends for recommendations as to reputable mechanics. Perhaps someone on Fixya may be able to recommend. Which area are you in?

My car keeps overheating..I changed the thermostat but the gauge is still all the way to hot..could it be the water pump?

Probly not. Unless the pump is run by it's own belt which broke. Usually , a pump is good till it starts leaking all over the place.
Please explain overheating problem more. Is it while you are driving , or when you are stoped in trafic. Does it heat up and overheat very quickly after you start the car. Is it really overheating , or is your guage just showing overheat.

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.

Hi,i have a 2004 hyundai accent.i noticed recently that when i drive on the free way with overdrive off, the car starts to get seems normal and i cant seem to have clue why this would happen.all...

When overdrive is off, your engine works harder to keep up the freeway speed. It could spin an extra 800 to 1200 rpm just to stay at the same speed as when od is on. This generates alot of heat. If you have one of the smaller engines it may just be your engine is working that hard. Or it may be you thermostat is goin out. When a thermostat goes bad it starts to open and close less when it gets hot, until it stops opening at all. This is when an engine overheats. If yours is starting to go, you may only notice it when od is off, and you are going down the freeway, because your engine is working so much harder at that time, than any other time you are driving it.

My car is a 2002 Pontiac Grand am and started to over heat every time i drive it what could it be i replaced the thermostat still over heats can any one help?

if it overheats at freeway speed, its a dirty radiator(flushing it usually don't help but you can try) If it overheats it traffic, then it is the automatic radiator fan(usually driven by electric motor). On some ocation an overheating is caused by retarded timing, but very unlikely on your vehicle since it is computerized.
