Engine overheats with the coolant recovery tank completely full (leaking out overflow) & heater doesn't work to remove heat from coolant.


My first guess would be air in the cooling system. For some reason liquid coolant is not flowing thru the engine.
As the engine warms up, the heater hoses should get hot and then the radiator hoses. If you take the thermostat out, you should be able to run the engine and see coolant flowing in the radiator, depending on the make and model.

2002 ford windstar sel overheating


first check coolant level in radiator coolant level sound low.if coolant overflow jug empty.coolant sysyem low, when add coolant to coolant overflow jug coolant level should stay at full cold mark.if coolant level okay,engine overheat while sitting or moving in slow traffic either coolant fan relay or fuse could be bad.or engine coolant temperature sensor could be bad. coolant sensor turn on cooling fan at certain temperature.hot wire check to make sure cooling fan motor not bad or short in wires.if all is good have pcm check it controls fan relay to through the coolant temperature sensor signal when coolant get hot.

Engine overheating i have replaced the radiator has plenty of water


replace thermostat.then bleed coolant system, this is how you do it.fill the cooling coolant system with 50 / 50 dexcool and water to raise boiling point,straight water will evaporate boil away cause engine to overheat catch fire thats why you need 50 / 50 mixture antifreeze and water.to bleed coolant system first fill coolant system until coolant stay at the full cold mark on the the coolant overflow jug,then you start engine allow it to idle,place the heater and ac control in any ac setting except max and the temperature control to the highest setting,run engine until lower hose to water pump is hot. with the engine hot run the engine speed up to 3000 rpm and allow it return to idle, repeat this 5 times. slowly open the bleed valve on the thermostat housing or look for bleed valve at the water pump heater hose.open bleed valve for 15 seconds to expel any trapped air.then top off the coolant as necessary,and when top radiator hose hot thermostat open up.keep adding cooling to overflow until coolant level stop at full cold mark dont over fill coolant.if engine seem like overheating while looking at cooling gauge turn off engine wait a while until cool off add more coolant until coolant level stay stable and dont drop any.when open radiator overflow cap use large rag over the radiator cap to keep from getting scald open radiator cap a little at a time but dont open radiator cap until engine cool down first.replace the radiator overflow cap, thermostat,and engine coolant temperature sensor and check the cooling fans fuses and relays see what happens.

Over heating on my dodge intrepid 1997 after short time of driving


CHECK ENGINE COOLANT LEVEL.MAKE SURE COOLANT OVER FLOW JUG HAS COOLANT IN FULL COLD MARK.IF COOLANT OVER FLOW JUG IS EMPTY RADIATOR GOT TO BE LOW ON COOLANT POUR COOLANT IN THE OVER FLOW UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL STAY AT THE COLD FULL MARK.SEE IF RADIATOR DONT HAVE A RADIATOR CAP YOU HAVE TO POUR COOLANT IN THE OVER FLOW JUG COOLANT WILL FLOW DOWN IN RADIATOR UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL STOP AT FULL COLD MARK.IF COOLANT LEVEL OKAY.YOUR THERMOSTAT NEED CHANGING ALSO RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.HAVE RADIATOR FLUSHED OUT.HAVE ENGINE BLOCK FLUSHED OUT.CHECK ENGINE OIL IF OIL LOOK LIKE MILK SHAKE ON OIL DIP STICK YOU HAVE LEAKING HEAD GASKET THAT WILL CAUSE ENGINE OVER HEAT WHILE CAR IN MOTION.CHECK WATER PUMP MAKE SURE ITS WEEP HOLE NOT LEAKING ANTIFREEZE IF SO WATER PUMP NEED REPLACING.

Where is the thermostat on a 96 audi a6


The thermostat on most internal combustion engines controls the flow of coolant to the radiator and this is fed into the top tank of the radiator.

The bottom hose is normally at the inlet to the coolant pump.


Vehicles with AC will have two radiators, and even some, a third for transmission or oil cooling but the largest of them will be the one handling engine cooling.


Locate the topmost hose of the radiator and simply follow it back toward the engine and it is normally connected to a dome-like fitting, under which you will find the thermostat.


If you are experiencing overheating though, it may not be a failed thermostat; this can be caused by a radiator blocked with debris, an internally collapsed hose and worst case, a failing head-gasket. The latter can fail in several places and overheating is often caused by the failure of it between coolant channels and one or more of the cylinders. This allows passage of hot combustion gases directly into the coolant flow.


Check the following: the overflow bottle for traces of oil contamination and possible odor of exhaust fumes, the oil dipstick for a milky deposit and when the engine is running, the overflow bottle for bubbles.

Where is the thermostat on a 2001 ford taurus sel located


The thermostat is located under a housing bolted to the engine. To locate the housing, follow the large hose coming out of the top of the radiator to the engine.

Changed radiator hoses and cap. changed coolant. still not getting flow with overflow into bottle. Thinking it may be bad thermostat. had coolant come out under cap. checked bottle and cap and no leak...


I had a leak on my top on hose on my jeep it was such a small hole I couldnt even recognize it. Almost mistaked it for the metal pipe corroding through. Now anytime your messing with the hoses it is best to just change the thermostat. They are cheap and easy. I would try that and go from there. Also how hot is it getting? 220 degrees is normal for jeeps. Should go a little past the middle line. Then the fans kick in and bring it back down. Also squeeze the hoses once it gets all the way hot and see that they have full pressure in them.
Thanks,
Lee

1998 Buick Skylark is over heating


You need to check the radiator cap for air leaks and also try having the radiator Flushed as you could have plugged fins inside the radiator, causing the radiator not to cool the antifreeze.

Start with engine cool. Remove rad cap, top up coolant, start engine, & turn on heater (not defrost). let it run until up to normal operating temperature & radiator fan comes on, then shuts off. Let it do this about 3 times before you put rad cap back on & top up return bottle to proper level. Every once in a while, rev engine slightly for a few seconds while your doing it, to speed up bleed by increasing flow. Keep an eye on temperature gauge for too hot, and fan not coming on, if so, shut it off.
