Maybe the water pump is not pumping, allowing the coolant to get hot because its not circulating to cool itself down, via the radiator. The steam could be coming from the overflow on the drivers side by the headlight. When everything else works, the culprit could be the need for a new water pump.

Typically when there is steam coming from the hood there is a pin hole in the radiator or hose. Most of the time when I see this problem there was a small chip in the radiator from a stone. It would allow steam to push out of the radiator but it was small enough to not allow any fluid to drip out. Hope this helps!

First of all those gauges on the dash are not accurate at all. You need a good temperature gauge to see what it is. You may be able to read the temp with a good obd scanner plugged in. From what you are talking about, if the temperature does come out to be an issue, you need to see if the impellor on the water pump is bad or loose or the hoses are collapsing.

2002 mercury sable overheating


Generally speaking, you can run the engine with or without the heater connected and it should make no difference in cooling the engine.
I wonder if the engine is actually running above 220 degrees.
Do you know where the steam or smoke is coming from ?
It could be a leak rather than actual overheating.

Radiator fans don't keeping running to keep the temp constant of the coolant


the fan only runs when the coolant temp reaches 225-230 degrees F, the temp will not remain constant, it will climb towards hot and then the fan will engage and bring it down, this is normal operation

Electric cooling fan


check wiring to fan for 12 volts. check wiring and see if there is a relay that can be replaced or tested. If the relay is good, and wiring has 12 volts, then either the temp sensor or fan motor brushes are shot.

Radiator fan on my 1994 toyota camry


there are actually 3 temp sensors. 1 is on the top of the engine that goes to temp gauge in dash has 1 wire. next to it is a 3 wire sensor for engine control and choke. on the bottom of the radiator next to the hose is a 2 wire sensor. loosen all 3 but leave connected. get engine hot past halfway point on dash gauge. with ac off disconnect 1 sensor at time. start with 2 wire under radiator. it takes the most abuse. fan will come on when you disconnect broken sensor. 2sensor must agree for fan to stay on till engine cools when turned off. note this is solution i used after verifying fuses, fuseable links and relays worked.WOO HOO! make sure you check both the fuse box under hood and fuse boxleft side of steering wheel my ECU fuse was inside my bros was outside.ECU B on my car goes to nothing and is under hood. Had it confused with ECU on wiring diagram.DOH!

Mitsi lancer 92 guage halfway is this normal


On my Mits half way on the temp gauge is perfect. Only goes higher if overheating.

You may want to check your thermostat for sticking. After warm up use a rag and grasp the upper radiator hose. You should feel the coolant moving through. If not replace thermostat.
