How do you know the water pump works?
Is the radiator clean outside and inside?
Remove the hoses and flush it out.
Is the thermostat in upside down?
Have you pressure tested for a bad head gasket? Leave the rad cap off and look for bubbles.

is there an air bleed on top of the thermostat housing? If not, when it's cool, remove the radiator cap and start engine.
Let it run until water rises up to top edge of radiator cap lip.
A little air in the cooling system can cause this problem.

once the water rises to the top, put the cap on and shut engine off.

If you see a bleed screw on top of the waterneck/thermostat housing, just loosen it a little at a time while the engine is running and warm.

If you see air bubbles, let it keep going until its a smooth flow of water.

DO NOT REMOVE ALL THE WAY.

this is all assuming that your fan and water pump are working fine.

Keep spilled coolant away from pets. poison.

In the past month my 1999 Jeep GC v8 4.7L has experienced slightly higher than normal engine temps. I thought it might be due to the fact that i was using it to tow for the 1st time. However today i drove...


Physically look in the radiator under the cap for coolant level, and check the valve in the cap for sticking. If air is present in the radiator it can't get out, and more coolant can't get in,(from the overflow). Either clean the cap or replace it and check that it is the CORRECT cap.
Radiator fins dirty, clean with a strong stream of water, not high pressure water.
Radiator clogged, have it boiled out, or replace.
Thermostat stuck open or shut, replace it.
Water pump worn out, can no longer move enough coolant, replace it.
Fan shroud broken or missing....
Electric Fan(s) not working, Check the fan, relay, fuse and engine temperature sensor's.
Belt driven fan, belt slipping, fan clutch is bad, fan blades have flattened out.

Air dam under front bumper is gone, loose, or broken. It actually has a purpose other than scraping on the driveway or curbs. It forces air up into and thru the condenser and radiator. If it

Tempature is getting hot replaced thermestat


air pockets possibly or your fan is not kicking on. look for a bleeder valve for the coolant and bleed the system when its running, or leave the radiator cap off and let it run for a while then top off system.

Are you sure that the spring side of the thermostat is toured the engine/ look for a bleeder near the top highest spot in a line or hose that may be able to release the air it may even be near the water pump side.on some water pumps for the ford's the pumps will bolt on and look almost the same but the fins on the impeller are the opposite.clock wise instead of counter clock wise or vice vars. you my wont to check with your parts supply store to see if that is possible.hope this helps give you some ideas.feel free to ask again if you would like any further assistance.thank you for asking fixya .

What can make my 2002 toyota tamoca over heat


One of the most common reasons for a vehicle overheating is a stuck thermostat. It can stick or freeze in the closed position blocking the flow of coolant to your engine. The easiest way to check if your thermostat is not open is to feel the upper radiator hose. Once the engine warms up it should become warm. If it does not get hot the thermostat is probably not opening.

A second common cause of overheating is a leak in your vehicle's cooling system. If your vehicle is loosing coolant there will not be enough left in the vehicle to keep it cool. This is easy to diagnose as the radiator will be low on fluid and there will probably be a pool of coolant on the floor of your garage. Look for leaks in the most common places like around hoses and around the welds of your radiator. If you can not find the leak you might need to take it to a shop to have the cooling system pressure tested.

The third cause is a faulty water pump. The water pump is a vital part of your cooling system since it is responsible for circulating coolant through your engine. With a faulty water pump your vehicle will not run for more than a few minutes without overheating.

The fourth cause of overheating is a bad cooling fan. There are two types of fans, electric and mechanical. The electric fan should come on automatically once the vehicle reaches operating temperature or when the A/C is turned on. If it doesn't you should have it replaced. The mechanical fan will run all of the time but has a clutch which makes it turn faster when the engine heats up. With the car turned off the fan should not turn too easily especially when the vehicle is warm. You can also check for signs of leakage from the fan clutch. If you see any problems have it replaced.

The fifth cause of overheating I will talk about is a clogged radiator. Over time the radiator can accumulate deposits of rust and debris. This is especially true if radiator fluid has not been flushed on a regular basis. If you suspect a clogged radiator you should take it to a shop to have it professionally cleaned.

Those are some of the most common cause for vehicle overheating. Vehicle overheating can cause a great deal of damage to your vehicle. If you are experiencing trouble be sure to fix your vehicle or take it to a quality mechanic as soon as possible.

Truck overheats at high speeds water pump does not leak i replaced every possible part there is


have you tried checking the fan clutch. make sure that it is locking up when warm. when engine is warm, turn off engine and watch the fan. it should stop immediately. if it keeps spinning, fan cluth is bad. also feel inside of radiator all around for hot and warm to cool spots. radiator may need rod out...good luck
