It should be either the thermostat or the water pump.The water pump will sometimes allow you to go about 25-30 miles before it overheats.The thermostat would likely be the cause if once the temperature guage starts going up,it kind of just keeps going and overheats.You need to avoid driving and overheating as much as possible due to very bad engine damage.Hopefully you have a second car.You can call a couple shops,they normally will give you a free opinion,just describe it with as much information as you can to get an accurate one.Also you can get free estimates unless you plan to self-repair.Good luck!

My 98 deville had a cracked radiator. replaced it. all was fine till a couple weeks ago when it overheated due to coolant leak from purge tank. replaced it. no more leaks but still ran up to 140 w/ air on...


First, you must have a properly installed thermostat that is working correctly. Second, Northstar engines are notorious for air in the cooling system after draining and refilling - keep checking the purge tank level after overheating and after the cooling system cools down. Third, make sure your cooling fans are working correctly (relay, fuse, temperature sensor) - check to make sure both are running when it overheats. If all the above is correct, the problem will probably be blockage in the system (try a flush) or your water pump itself is failing.

REPLACE THE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.IF COOLANT LOW, ADD MORE COOLANT THROUGH COOLANT OVERFLOW UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL IN THE COOLANT OVERFLOW STAY AT FULL COLD MARK.REASON POUR COOLANT THROUGH COOLANT OVERFLOW MOST GM CARS DONT HAVE RADIATOR CAP.WHEN YOU GET COOLANT LEVEL OKAY, CRANK CAR LET IT IDLE UNTIL ENGINE GET HOT BUILD UP PRESSURE THEN TURN OFF CAR.CHECK FOR COOLANTS LEAKS AT THE RADIATOR HOSES,CHECK FOR LEAKS AT THE RADIATOR, CHECK FOR LEAKS AT WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE IF YOU SEE COOLANT LEAKING FROM WEEP HOLE REPLACE WATER PUMP. IF CAR OVERHEATING WHILE IDLING YOUR COOLING FANS NOT WORKING CHECK COOLING FANS FUSE AND RELAYS.IF FUSE AND RELAYS OKAY THE ENGINECOOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR BAD.

1998 dodge caravan overheated, ac blowing warm and van seem to run sluggish


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. First, check your a/c fuses and your radiator fan fuses. Check your coolant level and make sure it is correct. Make sure you have no leaks and all hoses are good. Make sure coolant is in the radiator. Make sure your coolant cap fits good. Start the engine and watch it to see if you notice any leaks. If this all checks out, keep reading. The thermostat is the most common issue to cause overheating. It may be sticking or it may be bad. The water pump would be second. It could be the valve or impeller also. A bad coolant cap or bad head gasket can also cause overheating. You may even have a faulty coolant sensor. Dodge and Chrysler are prone to electrical problems, especially 96-98 vehicles. If it is overheating, it can cause the vehicle to act sluggish. I would say the overheating is the reason. You need to find the correct part that is bad and it should solve all your problems. As for the A/C, you could have a bad compressor. You may need to add freon. Check your fuses first though. Make sure the fans are kicking on also. If you have any questions, just let me know. I am here to help you.

Car keeps overheating don't seem to know whats the problem, changed the radiator (plastic head) & i'm still having problems. Can it be my thermo sensor??


Start by replacing the thermostat with one that has the same temperature range. If it continues to overheat have the cooling system flushed and the coolant replaced especially if the coolant is a dark or rusty color.

the cooling fan sensor could have went bad and that could be why the fan isnt turning on, if the fan isnt coming on that is definitly the issue of overheating that you will need to address. The fan has a sensor which tells it at a set degree when to turn on anothe possibility is the fan motor itself has went bad. Hope this helps.

Engine is overheating. The cooling fan isnt running. I checked the fuses and relay, All is ok. Is there and where is the cooling fan thermo switch located? Thanks Ken


there is "coolant temperature sensor" its located on the drivers side of the engine on the back towards the firewall. Have you checked your cooling fans? I have replaced a lot of these for the electric motors going bad. Good luck hope this helps.

if you are sure all of the above is correctly installed then the only othet thing i can think of if it isnt loosing coolant is either the guage or the sender unit is faulty,
if its not loosing coolant and the radiator isnt filled with muck then it really cant be anything else.
one other thing might sound silly but check that the thermo fan if its got one is coming on or if there is a plastic bag or something blocking the radiator
