If you take off the Thermostat to drive for a few days.
1- Situation is improving then the problem is at a bad thermostate. Just replace itr with a new one.
2- Situation is not improving then:
a- Problem is with water pump, if you don't feel the water flowing throgh the upper hose.
b- Problem is with the Radiator . It gets clogged up, even the water pump is working but cooling is not circulating so overheat comes on.
Good luck.

Radiator fans not coming on. replaced thermostat and cooling sensor


Hi Bill, is the engine actually getting hot enough for the fans to come on? if the engine does have overheating problem (but you say the temp gauge reads normal) then i would check the operation of the engine temp switch, there are two, one for the gauge and one for the fans.

I have a 96 Buick skylark.its overheating and I just replaced the thermostat and hose that runs from the radiator to the engine. But its still over heating.what can it be?


Bad water pump, blown head gasket, Clogged radiator, inside and out. If you constantly add coolant, head gasket. If not look to the radiator and pump.

Engine Overheating and fluctuating temp gauge??!!!


Sounds like you have a leaking engine head gasket.

Equniox have changed thermosate and coolant sensor and no leak still running hot


There are several things that can cause an engine to overheat. This is why the problem should be DIAGNOSED before spending a bunch of money replacing parts. You can go broke replacing parts and never fix the vehicle.

First, is your radiator cooling fan working? If not, then you must diagnose the cooling fan and cooling fan circuits to find out why.

Did you replace the coolant sensor for the computer or the one for the gauge? (Yes, there are two engine coolant temperature sensors) This brings us to the next question:

Are you sure the engine is actually overheating or is it possible that the gauge could be "lying" to you?
The actual engine temperature should be taken with an infrared thermometer to see if it agrees with the gauge.

When you changed the thermostat and the temp sensor, did you bleed the cooling system properly? There may be air trapped in the engine.

Has the engine been checked for a possible blown head gasket? If it has overheated at all, it is highly likely that you may have a warped cylinder head and/or a blown head gasket.

Is the water pump circulating the engine coolant like it is supposed to? You could have a damaged water pump impeller or a clogged radiator keeping the coolant from circulating properly.

I have a 2001 intredpid 3.2 that is overheating. The passenger side cooling fan will not cut on. I just changed the fan motor yesterday and I still haven't seen the fan cut on. Since I changed the...


First off, there is a number of reason why u are hearing bubbling noises but first lets address your Fan. I take it that u have a 2 fan setup, when you say " The passenger side cooling fan will not cut in". This fan is associated with the AC, and only comes on when the AC runs. Helps with better air flow thru the condenser which is in front of the rad. Does the AC work?

OK, now for the bubbling noise. First off the noise indicates to me that maybe you still have problems with over heating. Does the fan on the drivers side come on? Where is the Temp gauge at when it does come on? You might have air in the system, which canbe bleed thru a bleeder screw on top of the motor. I found the best way to do this is have the frt of the car elevated abit with the car off when filling the coolant reservoir. Other things associated with over heating, thermostat not opening, or stuck open. Head gasket, possibly exhaust is getting into cooling system, building up pressure which vents when you shut engine off. Hench the sound. Water pump possibly leaking.

Temp gauge goes way up to the danger zone, but not quite overheating, if I don't have the A/C on. Checked coolant level, it is fine. When driving it rises, when idling in goes to normal.


Possible wiring from sensor ( need to verify it is overheating, with Thermal Gun or probe) if it is overheating, check Fan operation and possible radiator restriction ?

What cause engine overheating


Several problems can cause it. A thermostat that is stuck closed (will not allow coolant to circulate- remove and place in a pan of boiling water, it should open rather quickly). Engine cooling fan(s) not operating as temp rises (when temp gauge goes up past normal range, check to see if fan is running. If not, it could be a switch that controls the fan operation, or less possible, a bad fan motor). A radiator plugged up with rust and sediment won't allow proper circulation of coolant, resulting in overheating. If coolant has not been changed in a long time, or appears rusty, flush the system thoroughly. You may need to have the radiator professionally flushed if it's plugged up bad. Good luck!

Coolant light on


You say it's overheating, more info needed such as:
Is the engine temp gauge showing that it's overheating?
Is it actually 'boiling over' and losing coolant?
If it's running hot, but not losing coolant, check to see it the cooling fan is operating when the engine temp rises. You may have a bad cooling fan switch that is not signaling the fan to go on to lower the engine temp.
It could be a stuck (closed) thermostat that is preventing proper circulation of coolant after the car reaches operating temp.

Overheating


Your overheating problems can have several possible causes.
1) Airlock in heating system - solution - bleed air from cooling system.
2) Radiator blocked - solution - drain and flush radiator
3) Failed waterpump - solution - fit new waterpump
4) Engine thermostat stuck in closed position - solution - fit new thermostat
5) Electric cooling fan (if fitted) failing to operate - solution - check fan, fan operating switch, all wiring and connectors
6) Not enough coolant in system - solution - check and top up to required level. Also check all hoses for sign of leakage.
7) Faulty temperature gauge giving incorrect reading.
