Hi! The problem will surely be on the water pump. If the water pump is faulty the coolant doesn't circulate very well on the engine's cooling system. Please have the water pump replaced before the engine gets damaged due to overheat. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

I have a 1999 chry town and country van. Replaced radiator fan, thermostat and fan relay fuse and continues to get hot at times. What could be the problem?


IF your sitting in stop and go traffic with the AC on it will over heat and if the water Pump is weak or about to go out it will overheat. Try having the system power flushed and see if that helps and make sure you are using a 50/50 mix of Antifreeze instead of straight water in the radiator. Also try replacing the radiator cap a weak spring in the cap will allow the water into the overflow bottle too soon causing over flow.

Engine running hot


CHECK ENGINE COOLANT LEVEL.IF OKAY.CHECK BOTH RADIATOR HOSES BOTH SHOULD BE HOT. IF THERMOSTAT TOP HOSE NOT HOT YOU HAVE A FAULTY THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP IF RADIATOR HOSES HOT AND THERMOSTAT OKAY.IF ENGINE OVERHEATING WHILE CAR SITTING IN A LONG TRAFFIC LINE COOLANT FANS NOT RUNNING.THE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR IS BAD OR YOU HAVE FAULTY FUSE OR RELAY.THE FAN MOTOR DEFECTIVE, WIRES AT MOTOR HAS A SHORT OR PCM FAILURE DEAD DRIVE CIRCUIT TO FAN.

Why my 1999 oldsmobile alero runnig hot after I've gotten it fix


there may be air trapped in the coolant system. the fans may not be connected since you had the radiator replaced. bring it back to the mechanic who did the work and tell him your not satisfied.he should be responsible for the discrepany.

My 03 G35 is overheating and no heat in the cabin


Hello,
The thermostat was a good choice however you should go to a service station and get a complete cooling system flush.
your heater core and or radiator could be clogged.

I have replaced the thermostat and clutch fan on 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 (6-speed). running around town and sitting in traffic w/ air on it does not get hot, guage at "half mast". Running 75mph in 6th gear on...


Did You Replace the (FAN CLUTCH) or just the FAN ? Sounds Like FAN CLUTCH Problem, os long as Coolant Level is FULL , There ALSO May be An OBSTRUCTION in RADIATOR , Check in Front of Radiator for Debris and CLEAR ANY that May be There.

1999 BMW 323 radiator light came on


Have you had your radiator flushed lately. It might need to be flushed out or add coolant. The other thing might be that the thermostat needs to be sticking and needs to be replaced.........Thank You for using Fixya.com.....: )

OVERHEATS IF SITTING STAYS OK COOL IF MOVING OVER 40 NO HEATER FA


you can check if the water pump is working by feeling the top rad hose , if it is hot it should circulate into the rad and the rad should be hot at the top and cool at the bottom if the pump is faulty there will be no circulation of hot coolant into the rad. I suspect your head gasket might be blown if you are getting pressure built up in the rad. in that case you will need a new gasket and have your head skimmed
