    Check the fan clutch-Especially if the overheat condition occurs mostly at idle or with AC on.

SOURCE: 1988 suzuki samurai radiator water comes out overflow after driving 45 minutes

hi have a look at water in the radiator when the engines running see if you can see bubbles constant ly i think you will find there is this is because the headgaskets gone and the gases are escaping from the engine into your radiator pushing your water out there is a cheap fix for this they now do a soultion that you pour into the radiator and it chemically combines when it finds the problem due to the excess heat created it is a perminant fix and a lot cheaper than headgasket sets head machined etc yates210456

Look at the timing belt and make sure it is on and tight. Then maybe pull the distributor and make sure it isn't bad

SOURCE: Oil Leaking

Check the metal vent tube on the fuel pump. When the diaphram goes out, oil will leak from the vent tube. If that is the problem, get it fixed pronto. Not always but there are some times when fuel gets mixed into the oil when the pump is going out and that thins the oil out. Keep on driving with this problem and you can kiss your engine good bye.

When/if you change the fuel pump out, make sure not to lose the push rod that is behind it. It goes between the camshaft and fuel pump.

SOURCE: vitara overheat

When driving down highway only, it overheats? When running steady, I take it you mean, sitting idling? If it's only overheating at highway speeds, and all else has been checked out & is o.k., I'd take a close look at rad hoses for soft spots (easy to squeeze) that may be causing hoses to collapse at highway speeds & restricting flow of cooling system. Another thing to try is, turn your heater on high fan & high temperature when it starts to heat up & see if temperature gauge goes down (cooler) at all. If it does, then rad not doing it's job properly.

Why my kia sorento always overheat

There are many factors. Most reasons are bad water pump or blockage in radiator or the thermostat is stuck closed. Recommended to install new pump and thermostat and flush radiator.

Causes overheating

no year? who hot, does hot mean only the gauge when high?
engine overheats or passengers.?? LOL'
overheats parked, ???? or moving fast or BOTH?
where are you that needs A/C , Key West>? im clueless.
it was 72 hear yesterday, no A/C needed.??
so how warm was it? out side?
Any engine with a weak cooling system will in fact overheat
if the A/C is used, because of the heat the A/C dumps in front
of the engine cooling radiator. (a silly design but practical)
think of the straw that finally broke the camels back.
its perfect.
top reasons, lots:
coolant low? look in the RAD neck, dead cold, is the RAD FULL??
for now ignore side tank, levels, assume its not working at all , use RAD actual levels.

1: belts slipping, on water pump pulley
2: debris, in the 2 cores up front, in the front nose of car.
3: radiator tubes clogged, making RAD , weak.
4: not running 50% antifreeze, with boilover protection.
mine boils 265" (i just changed mine yesterday)
5: water pump bad, blades inside rusted thru, (bad service)
6: serious engine problems causing cooling system failure.
a: blown head gasket, forcing exhause gases to the water jackets.
B: same with cracked head, or block. (freeze protection ignored)
7: Engine RAD fan dead. (will cause parked , overheating for SURE)
8: a bad thermostat. they dont last forever. 5 years?
I have a video that shows what fails in a thermostat. very revealing.
did i cover it?

I have 2000 olds intrigue 3.5l. Jump on gas the other day temp gauge shot upand overheating light came on. I changed thermostat car still overheats. Not blowing white smoke like head gasket is blown....

Mine did that last summer and is now fixed. When was the last time you flushed the cooling system? If you use DexCool it turns into large clumpy pieces that can't go through the radiator. If you flush it and put in new coolant (not DexCool this time) and it's still hot, you'll need a new radiator instead of a radiator flush probably, as there will probably be DexCool "clumps" in the radiator that won't let your coolant go through it to cool your engine. Best wishes - and get someone good to do it, it's a lot cheaper than replacing the engine!

I have changed the termostat, water pump and radiator but 93 Eldorado still overheats after a few moments of running. Help!

Not sure what the problem is but when I had this problem it was due to an air bubble in the cooling system. When car is cool, remove radiator cap, make sure coolant is full, try squeezing the big hose on top of radiator and get the bubbles out. Mine was so bad I had to drain my coolant and refill it. I used one of those kits you buy at the auto stores with the quick connects and that worked perfect. Make sure when flushing system vehicle is running and the heat is on. Keep flushing until all green or rusty water turns clear. Make sure system is full topping it off as needed. Good luck.

Car overheats and AC stops blowing cold, then temp guage eventually goes back down and AC starts blowing cold, after a while overheats again and AC stops blowing cold again. problem just started after a...

Your AC system is supposed to shut down if the engine is hot, as a safety device-make sure when the ac is running , the radiator fan is blowing-it may not be, caused by either a bad relay, blown fuse or a bad fan motor. Make sure your antifreeze is fully up to level, and if you haven't done it in the past 2 or 3 years, get the cooling system serviced with a new thermostat-cheap insurance, you do NOT want to overheat that aluminum engine, because if you do, it will be toast.

My 1995 Riviera is overheating and this has become a head scratcher (engine 3.8). Last year the radiator, water pump, belts and hoses were replaced. About a week ago it started to overheat. I replaced the...

Drain and flush the cooling system...more than once if needed.
Replace the thermostat with a 180 degree...the OE stat. is 200 degree.
Clean the outside of the radiator and a/c condensor, make sure there is no debris in the cooling fins and they flow air freely.
Fill system with 50/50 mixture.
If it still attempts to overheat...check your cat convertor, it's clogged and creating too much back-pressure
Hope this helps...

My 1986 samurai keeps over heating...I've changed the thermostate, had the radiator roded out,changed the water pump,new head gasket please help

ok make sure your radiator fan sucks the air and pull the engine this is very important. If the fan is electric checks goes to work automatically and if not activated thermal switch may have a problem. Thanks

Temperature gauge problem on a 1987 Samurai

If you disconnect the guage sending unit what happens? Are you sure that there is only one sending unit, many Japanese cars use 2, one for normal zone and one for overheat, the last makes the guage quickly go to hot to alert the driver of a problem before the engine is ruined, let me know what you find.
