Overheating when I sit idle.


Over heating the engine is a serious concern. With the hood raised you should hear the motorized fan turn on just behind the radiator as the engine requires additional cooling.. If you look in from the rear of the radiator you should see the fan blades.

This electric powered motor operates on a thermostat and when the engine temperature rises this fan should come on. I'm assuming from your description that when driving and air is flowing through the radiator as the car travels the engine is nor overheating.

Check fan motor thermostat, check fan motor and check wiring.

Motor engine cooling fan only runs as engine temperature requires additional cooling.

What is difference between on an auto on thermostate


I'm not sure exactly how this applies specifically in a car, but on a home heating and cooling (air conditioning) thermostat, it is often associated with the fan or blower setting.

If for a system fan:

"Auto On" setting in a heating / cooling system would start the fan when the temperature climbed above or dropped below the setting you on the thermostat and start the heat or cooling source. Once the thermometer indicates the desired temperature had been reached, the heating / cooling source would be stopped and the fan would turn off.

"On" would run the fan all the time, regardless if the thermostat tired to start the heat or cooling source. This would result in constant circulation of the air in the space(s) and tend to keep warm or cool spots (rooms) from being created.

My kia blue a headgasket and head was cracket but i replased the head with a brand new head and head gasket put a new water pump on new radiator new heat guage censor new thermostat and still overheat


Are the cooling fans coming on ? What year an model Kia ? Most all newer vehicles have electric cooling fans turned on by the ECM / PCM -engine computer ! The ECT - engine coolant temperature sensor tells the computer how hot the engine is an when it reaches a certain temperature the engine computer supplies a ground to the cooling fan relay that turns on the cooling fans !

Over heating


Thermostats in cars are often neglected, if not totally forgotten, units. Yet they play an important role in the general performance of cars by restricting water flow until the engine has warmed-up. Thermostats are heat sensitive valves that open and close. On cars they prevent circulation of coolant to the radiator until the engine is warm enough. When the thermostat is closed water only flows through the water pump and water jacket to let the engine warm quickly. When the thermostat opens, water can then pass through the radiator for general cooling.
google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); Having a car that warms quickly is particularly useful in cold weather when you want to use your car heater as soon as possible. The thermostat is in a small housing positioned where the top radiator hose connects to the engine. The best time to check or change a thermostat is when you are servicing your radiator because you need to drain the cooling system
first. Hence, a thermostat change is a good time to flush and clean your cooling system, check all radiator hoses and the radiator pressure cap. Be sure you have the correct cap on your radiator and it is not rusted. Thermostats are small, inexpensive items. You can test them by heating in water and checking their operating temperature with a thermometer. However it really is quicker and ultimately more reliable to simply fit a new one,
1. thermostat common problems (replace every 50-60k miles)
2. thermostat switch sensor (which turn your cooling fan on and off)
3. check and see if the cooling fans is running when the engine get to its operation temperature. (fan motor can be fault)

Heat not working


Try locating the heater hoses. Start with the vehicle cool and turn it on and wait till the engine temperature reaches the correct temperature. This should send fluid through the heater hoses. Feel the heater hoses for a change in temperature. If there is no change in heat after a while the problem is in your thermostat. If one heater hose is hot while the other is not than the problem is in the heater block. If both hoses are heating up then the problem is probably in the climate control knobs or wiring that controls the blend doors or may even be the blend doors are broke and are not opening correctly to allow heat into the vents. This could also be a problem if the ac does not get cool either.

Can driving my buick without the thermostat hurt


Yes it can. The car will not get up to operating temperature as fast. It's never good to modify a car from its original factory specifications.

The heat works fine when the car is idleing/sitting still, but when I start drinving the air becomes & stays cool very quick. What is causing this & what can I do?


The thermostat is stuck open. The idea behind it is, the thermostat should stay closed until a certain temperature, keeping coolant in the engine where it can absorb heat, which is used to heat the climate air. If the thermostat sticks open, the coolant doesn't absorb much heat because it just flows right through and out of the engine. Sitting still, that's ok because the coolant stays at temperature. When driving, the slipstream air flows through the radiator and cools it way down, and there isn't enough heat left in the coolant to warm the climate air. You'll need to change the thermostat, refill the coolant, and burp the air out of the system, and you'll be good to go.

Soon as i turn on my heat my cooling fans come on first


It sounds like you do need a thermostat with your heat shut off and the gauge will raise a little then the car doesn't have that heat drawn from it indicating that you most likely do need a thermostat. As far as the fans coming on immediatly that could be a different problem it is most likely the coolant temperature sensor that tells the fan's when to come on. If this sensor says the coolant is hot the fans will come on immediatly. These are seperate problems as the coolant temperature sensor does not have anything to do with the cabin heating system. You should first check the level of your coolant is full, This could also cause your cabin heating system to perform poorly, and may have adverse effects to the engine cooling system. (fans)
