99 ford taurus starts up but doesnt drive more than 10 miles per hour and temperature starts to rise


maybe a coolant thermostat that is faulty, a collapsed or perished hose..

It could also indicate cylinder head gasket/cylinder head problems.

Ten miles is about the correct distance for a car engine to reach normal operating temperature. If your temperature gauge continues to rise beyond normal ..ie. overheating .. you risk causing a lot of damage to your engine.

If you're not sure what to do or look for - get somebody to check it out for you

1999 Ford Taurus keeps running hot


Does it get hot mainly when parked or stopped at a red light or does it get hot even when the car is in motion?If its only when your stopped,the cooling fans are probably not working due to a blown fuse,relay or bad fan motor.If the coolant inside the reservoir seems to boil once the engine gets hot,that can be caused by a defective radiator cap.A blown head gasket will also cause overheating.If you let the engine idle for a few minutes,shut it off,pull all of the spark plugs,see if any plug or two adjacent plugs are wet with coolant, that's a sign of a blown head gasket.If you constantly need to refill the radiator with coolant, that's another sign.

I'm running hot about a mile N half down the road how do I no if it's a blown head


A bad head/head gasket will make the radiator hoses extremely pressurized in a short time. If you are driving this distance with a cold engine and the hoses are pressurized, possible head gasket.

2001 subaru forester. overheat problems. changed head gaskets, water pump kit (comes with all pulleys and new belt.


make sure the pump it turning. Also be sure your thermostat is not isntalled upside down. That happens you know. Check the waterlevel on your car. be sure your fan is kicking on as the engine heats up. There should be a temp sensor to make it turn on. I think this model has a heaater bypass too to check on which runs the heater around the engine to let it heat up faster.. might check that too. I would check on the backward thermostat forst though.

Do you only drive it for short distances ( under 20 miles)?
Do you live in an area that gets cold temperatures?
Those two combined create a lot of condensation. It might be "normal" for this time of year with short drives.

My 2002 Pontiac Montana gets to hot in a short distance. I don't know what it is I have an idea it's either the thermostat or a blown head gasket not sure which one. So which one is it?


You would need to figure out if the thermostat is stuck closed, or not.
Most mechanics would either replace it or take it out and run the engine without it as a test. If the engine still overheats with the thermostat out, it could be a faulty water pump, restriction in the radiator, or other problems.
A blown head gasket should leak coolant out on the ground or into the engine.

Why is the coolant overflow leaking and car is not running hot?


It could come from a blown head gasket. It is pushing combustion gases into the radiator resulting in coolant being pushed out the recovery tank. Does the car get up to temperature a lot faster than it did before? Or run hot after only driving it a short distance? That is a sign of a blown head gasket. please rate my answer so I get points for it.

Overheating


OVERHEATING CAN BE CAUSE BY MANY THINGS LIKE FAULTY THERMOSTAT AND FAULTY RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP,TOO MUCH WATER IN COOLANT SYSTEM NEED 50 / 50 WATER AND ANTIFREEZE.LOOK FOR WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE LEAK, IF COOLANT LEAKING OUT WEEP HOLE WATER PUMP BAD NEED REPLACING.CHECK FOR LOW COOLANT LEVEL, YOUR RADIATOR OVERFLOW JUG SHOULD HAVE COOLANT AT THE FULL COLD MARK IF NOT KEEP ADDING COOLANT INTO COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG UNTIL COOLANT STOP DROPPING AND FULL COLD MARK, IF OVERFLOW COOLANT JUG WAS EMPTY RADIATOR IS LOW ON COOLANT.WHICH CAUSE AIR IN COOLANT SYSTEM KEEPING THE ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR FROM BEING SUBMERGE IN HOT COOLANT WHICH TURN ON THE COOLANT FANS.WHEN ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE GET CERTAIN SET TEMPERATURE LIKE 190 DEGREES THE PCM AND COOLANT SENSOR WILL TURN ON COOLANT FANS, IF VECHICLE OVERHEATING COOLANT FANS NOT WORKING EITHER YOU HAVE FAULTY ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR CHECK COOLANT FANS FUSE AND RELAYS. YOU CAN CODE SCAN CAR TO SEE IF YOU HAVE FAULTY PCM, FAULTY ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OR FAULTY COOLANT FAN RELAY.IF COOLANT FAN AND ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OKAY,YOU HAVE CORRECT COOLANT LEVEL IN COOLANT SYSTEM, THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP BEEN REPLACED, YOU COULD HAVE BLOWN HEAD GASKET CHECK ENGINE OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE HEAD GASKET BLOWED ALSO WHEN HEAD GASKET BLOWED YOU CAN DRIVE CAR SHORT DISTANCE START OVERHEATING AND YOU LOOSE ENGINE POWER SUSPECT BLOWED HEAD GASKET.

My 1991 honda accord fails to start after I have driven it a short distance and turn it off. I also is blowing white smoke out of the tail pipe


If it is a constant smoke and or alot, your head gasket is blown. stop driving it if you want to save this engine. also engines with really high miles don't like head jobs, remanned heads can blow out the rings on the pistons and that leads to an engine rebuild. If your car has really high miles , you would be better off replacing the engine

sounds like u have a leaking head gasket, the more power u apply the quicker it leaks as the pressure goes up in the combustion chamber, this puts combustion gases into the cooling system and makes the engine run hot, gas does not cool the engine..
