I have a 2000 Bmw 323 I that is having a overheating problem what would be the cause of the overheating problem a thermastat a water pump or a radiator flush


Could be any or all three or a bad cooling fan. I'd start by replacing the thermostat since they are dirt cheap. After replacing the thermostat warm the vehicle up and feel the upper radiator hose if its hot the rhe thermostat opened and the water pump is circulating coolant next check the radiator it should be hot near the upper radiator hose and significantly cooler near the lower with an even heat distribution if any parts of the radiator dont get warm/hot then you radiator is plugged. Also you need to check the operation of the cooling fan with the engine warm turn on your ac that should immediately turn the electric fan on

Radiator fans not working car is running hot.


Turn vehicle off. Allow to cool. Raise hood.
Try to see if the fans spin freely by hand. If not, replace. If they do spin, proceed to next step.
Next step-
Check coolant level, add if needed. Remember-radiator must be cool before opening cap. Make sure radiator cap is secure and tight if coolant was added.
Start vehicle. Observe coolant gauge as vehicle warms. Fans should come on when temp gauge reads halfway between c and h.
If fans do not come on see if they come on when you turn on ac or heat. If doing this makes them come on, suspect faulty cooling fan sensor switch. If they don't come on replace cooling fan sensor switch and fan relay.

I have a 99 alero 3.4 changed the heads and it is still over heating I don't know what else to do if you have any ideal plz let me know


You need to check your entire cooling system, radiator, hoses, water pump, everyting, make sure notthing is leaking. Check your oil to make sure it's not milky, if it is, you've got a bad head gasket.

Over heating


If this vehicle has the original or old(defective) thermostat, this can cause overheating if its stuck closed(defective). The engine cooling fan has a clutch, If defective the fan will just spin, not fast enough to cool the engine and cause overheating. The radiator is clogged, can cause overheating. A simple check for the radiator is when vehicle has been running awhile, engine is hot, shut the vehicle off and open the hood and carefully reach your hand down between engine fan and radiator and quickly palm the radiator at the top, middle, and bottom and if the warm temp by feel is about the same, most likely the radiator is not the problem. Good luck, best regards.

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.

Radiator fan runs after car is turned off. Only occurs when A/C is run for more than 10-15 min. Shuts off after a few minutes, but is concerning.


That is nothing to worry about the fan remains running after the vehicle shuts off in order for the engine to cool down. Once the motor cools down sensors trigger the fan to shut it off.

92 honda accord - radiator fan not working


Hi,


There should be 2 fans on this vehicle. the small one is the Condenser fan, the larger one is the Radiator fan. (in case you need to replace one)

When the vehicle is warmed up fully, both fans should come on at the same time. If not most likely is simply the fan motor that has gone open.(very common to happen) To test, start the vehicle and warm up when the other cooling fan comes on then check the power at the connector with a test light. (should be a 2 wire plug leading to the center part of the motor. Check the harness side not the fan motor side part of the connector for power. Check both wires at once) You may need help with this part.

If it has power, you need a motor. If not there's something else that's the problem. Thats get's more complicated. Check the relay by swapping the two cooling fan relays and retest to see if the problem moves to the other fan verifying a failed relay. If that doesn't solve the situation, you have a electrical fault in the vehicle.

Good luck and I hope this helped.
