This is caused because you have a bad heater core. The heater core is used to heat the car during winter.In order to fix this issue you will need to have the heater core replaced. I can tell you this is not a fun or simple job and is generally better left to the pros. However, if you purchase a Chilton's or Mitchell manual you can do this yourself, but prepare for hours of tight, cramped work. If you are in a hot climate and do not need the heater you can simply bypass it.

My chevy Venture van still overheating after radiator replaced, temp gauge replaced and fans fixed. WHY?


You may have air trapped in the cooling system. This will cause overheating. When you fill the system, there is a small brass air purge valve above the coolant pump and another on the thermostat housing. These need to be loosened and trapped air released when filling the cooling system.

My 2001 chevy venture minivan overheats unless I turn on the air conditioner on high.i make sure the coolant is filled up to the line.i also made sure the radiater fan is working to properly cool off the...


I owned the same year and loved the van, but mine also began to do the same thing. My problem was the Head gasket. It had a small leak which caused the motor to over heat. A shop can put it under a pressure test to see if it has a leak. My leak allowed the coolant to seep where it didn't belong causing it to burn off. You might also check the water pump. If it's going out it won't always leak first. An faulty thermostat will also cause it to over heat. Good luck!

1999 dodge interpid 3.2 it is overheating


Do a pressure test on the cooling system.

My suspicion at this point is that you have a blown head gasket or cracked cylinder wall.

Engine overheating i have replaced the radiator has plenty of water


replace thermostat.then bleed coolant system, this is how you do it.fill the cooling coolant system with 50 / 50 dexcool and water to raise boiling point,straight water will evaporate boil away cause engine to overheat catch fire thats why you need 50 / 50 mixture antifreeze and water.to bleed coolant system first fill coolant system until coolant stay at the full cold mark on the the coolant overflow jug,then you start engine allow it to idle,place the heater and ac control in any ac setting except max and the temperature control to the highest setting,run engine until lower hose to water pump is hot. with the engine hot run the engine speed up to 3000 rpm and allow it return to idle, repeat this 5 times. slowly open the bleed valve on the thermostat housing or look for bleed valve at the water pump heater hose.open bleed valve for 15 seconds to expel any trapped air.then top off the coolant as necessary,and when top radiator hose hot thermostat open up.keep adding cooling to overflow until coolant level stop at full cold mark dont over fill coolant.if engine seem like overheating while looking at cooling gauge turn off engine wait a while until cool off add more coolant until coolant level stay stable and dont drop any.when open radiator overflow cap use large rag over the radiator cap to keep from getting scald open radiator cap a little at a time but dont open radiator cap until engine cool down first.replace the radiator overflow cap, thermostat,and engine coolant temperature sensor and check the cooling fans fuses and relays see what happens.

1996 cadillac deville overheat..radiator?


Check for coolant flow at the Purge line,this is a common problem on the Northstar.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.
