Can my 2003 kia spectra run without thermostat


Clarify your question. If it is overheating with the new radiator, how badly?. bubbles in the overflow tank?
Jack up front and take cap off and burp radiator overnight.
One suspects air bubbles, or the wrong water thermostat not opening for whatever reason.ensure water thermostat has a hole drilled through it

If its the electronic 'fan' thermostat, you are addressing the symptom not the problem. If the car has 300kms/150K miles, could be a head gasket leak - exhaust to water. Check radiator fluid for traces of exhaust gas.

What make a car run hot


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If you are low on coolant fluid, it will cause it to overheat. Check your coolant fluid level. If your fans are not working or kicking on, it will cause overheating. If so, check the fuse for them. Check for leaking coolant on your lines. A bad radiator can cause overheating and a bad cap can cause overheating. Make sure the cap is snug. Make sure there are no leaks. Now, the most common issue would be a bad thermostat or a sticking thermostat. Next, I would say would be a bad water pump. Now, it could be the water pump valve or impeller, but that is not common. Also, a bad head gasket can cause overheating. Anyone of these can cause your issue. Check fluid first and fans. You may have a leak or a bad fuse. If the fans do not work, that is probably your problem. They should kick on when the car begins to heat up. If the fuse is good and they still don't work, it is either the wiring or the fan itself. I hope this helps you out. Take care. Rick

1991 Dodge Stealth overheating


if you think the fans are your problem,first thing is to check the system with a hand computer,with that you can activate the fans,or run test on each part of the system.
your fans will not come on until 212 degrees.so you need a thermometer to verify temp of engine water,next check the engine temp sensor,if it doesn't see that temp it won't tell the computer to turn the fans on.if you have checked the fuses with a test light,for the fans,and the fan relay.one fan is a manual override,it will come on as soon as you turn the A/C on,then they have low speed and high.

Car overheating


when the car is cold, fill the radiator, start the car. Leave it running with the radiator cap off until the thermostat opens. If it opens the fluid in the radiator will be circulated by the water pump and the electric fan will turn on and cool the radiator. If not, the engine will overheat because either the thermostat is not opening or if the fan doesn't come on, the fan sensor is probably at fault, or both. If there is a noise and fluid leak, the problem could be the water pump. If there is no fluid leak, the problem is likely the thermostat or the fan sensor.
