If there are no leaks noted, I would be thinking that you should have the radiator and t-stat replaced as well as a cooling system flush

Overheating problems


First, you should have replaced the thermostat when the first signs of cooling problems..(the over flow reservoir is just that)..Its time to replace the thermostat, the hoses, and have the radiator flushed and the engine block reverse flushed..Check for coolant in your oil.. if there IS coolant in your oil..(light colored chocolate milky).. its time for a qualified professional... Good luck...

Heater problems 2009 dodge nitro v6.


Possible, with rad cap off, let vehicle idle until coolant fan comes on then shut vehicle off for 30 minute cool down. Top up rad, install cap and drive and recheck heater operation and any overheating.

I have 2000 olds intrigue 3.5l. Jump on gas the other day temp gauge shot upand overheating light came on. I changed thermostat car still overheats. Not blowing white smoke like head gasket is blown....


Mine did that last summer and is now fixed. When was the last time you flushed the cooling system? If you use DexCool it turns into large clumpy pieces that can't go through the radiator. If you flush it and put in new coolant (not DexCool this time) and it's still hot, you'll need a new radiator instead of a radiator flush probably, as there will probably be DexCool "clumps" in the radiator that won't let your coolant go through it to cool your engine. Best wishes - and get someone good to do it, it's a lot cheaper than replacing the engine!

Overheating with normal temp on gauge


The heater core would not cause you needing a quart or two of coolant to fill it up. And the water pump would not affect this either.
Something is blocking the system, it could be something in the radiator or something in one of the hoses.
You might try taking the top hose off and filling the engine with the radiator blocked off. Or fill the radiator with the engine blocked.

2003 Denali overheating too easily when idling in traffic. A/c on at time. Message center also indicating coolant over temp.


well i deal with this problem every day it seems that your coolant might be bad and needs to be flushed out or you have a bad thermostat and the coolant is getting clogged up not being able to flow thru that try flushing radiator and then if nothing thermostat

Heater not blowing hot but engine not overheating


The coolant thermostat needs replaced or you need a coolant flush. Heater cores (in the dashboard) often clog and stop warm coolant from circulating into the heater. A coolant flush would cure this. Flushes usually run from 70 to 90 dollars to have done at a service shop.

I have an overheating problem.what could be wrong


Overheating can be casued by a few things.

1)Thermostat
2)Water pump
3)Dirty coolant clogging the pump

A thermostat is the cheapest part to replace, a thermostat opens and closes allowing coolant into the motor as needed to keep it cool, if it gets stuck closed then it doesn't allow any coolant into the motor thus overheating.

A water pump is what pumps your coolant around the system, and if this goes no coolant moves thus overheating. Usually when these go bad they leak coolant and are also noisy when bad.

Lastly could be bad or dirty coolant, a coolant flush can take care of this.

If I were you I would start with the thermostat followed by the coolant flush, both of these can be done in your driveway.

Hope this helps
