The most likely problem is your themostat is stuck in the closed position, not allowing the radiator to do it's job of cooling you engine. Also, check to make sure your radiator fan turns on once your car is warmed up, if it's not on that also will cause your car to overheat.The worst possible problem could be a blown head gasket, in which case you have to take the car to a shop. Now, for the AC issue, you car is designed to turn off the AC system when it detects that the engine is overheating, this is to help prevent engine damage. Once you have the overheating problem solved your AC will work fine.

Mini Cooper temperature gauge goes to red zone when idle


check coolant level could be too low allowing air in the cooling system causing air pocket in engine around the engine coolant sensor.coolant sensor needs to be in hot coolant so it will cause the cooling fan to come on at a set temperature.make sure coolant correct level and the coolant level in the cooling overflow jug should be at full cold mark.the cooling overflow jug should never be empty,if you see empty cooling overflow jug air got in the cooling system so make sure when engine cold every time raise hood make sure cooling overflow jug coolant level at full cold mark.if jug stay empty you have cooling leak.so replace radiator cap,if coolant level all good,i would replace the engine coolant temperature and thermostat.when your car come to a long stop or driving along long line of slow moving traffic the engine coolant blower motor should running if not have vechicle code scan for faulty coolant fan motor control module.or ecm problems.

the ac pressure depends on the gas in use

overheating at slow speeds indicate an inefficient coolant fan and the high ac pressures indicate that the condenser fan also is not operational
if it has a viscous fan hub , replace the fan hub
if it has electric fans check / the fans, fan relay , fuses , coolant temp sensor

How do i put water in my radiator?


you need to replace thermostat and radiator cap.look under hood around engine compartment.look for a radiator cap near radiator,add 50/50 antifreeze and water to coolant system to bring up boiling point.pure water will cause engine run hotter because water evaporate away,remove radiator pour coolant in the radiator until coolant stop dropping in the radiator now some vechicle pour coolant in the coolant overflow jug,pour coolant until coolant level stop dropping and the coolant level stay at cold full mark.start engie let idle few minutes, watch coolant level in radiator if coolant start dropping add more coolant, when coolant level stop dropping put radiator cap back on let engine idle until both top radaitor hose and bottom coolant hose get warm turn off engine wait until it get cool then take a large rag slightly open radiator just a litle at a time to keep from getting scaled.once radiator remove add more coolant if low,put radiator cap back on start the engine let it idle watch the temp gauge if temperature gauge going hot zone stop engine wait until cool then add more coolant,keep doing this until engine stop overheating going into hot zone and coolant level stop dropping,make the coolant overflow jug coolant level stay at full cold mark, dont let jug run empty if so air will get in the coolant system causing engine to overheat.

My car is getting hot in idle, what is wrong?


Check first your coolant level. Start engine and turn on ac open hood see if cooling fans are running, if fans are running and coolant level is ok temperature should stay normal. If temperature rises squeeze coolant hose, it should be firm like you could feel pressure on the hose a sign that the water pump is good. Thermostat opens only when coolant reach normal operating temperature.

Changed thermostat,relay,tophose everything,radiator switch,.still the engine gets heated if we run the car above 50km/hr speed.It is normal when we drive inside 50km/hr.Radiator fan also not rotating.wht...


Sounds like your fan belt is glazed or loose. At higher speeds the belt slips over waterpump and doesn't drive pump fast enough to circulate coolant. That would be first thing I would check...
Other possibilities: waterpump, blocked heater core, fan clutch.

I own a 1999 Ford Expediton and the heat nor ac is working, plus all the coolant is running out of vehicle, there is a hole in the steel hose coming from the coolant system up front, and also top where it...


this steel hose is a coolant line for the rear heat so it will be under pressure, the fix you do has to withstand this pressure so i would have it fixed properly and replace the line. Is this why heat doesnt work as the coolant leaks out?

2004 WRANGLER OVER HEATING, CHANGED RADIATOR, T-STAT, FLUID IS NOT CIRCULATING THROUGHOUT ENGINE


hi, if you have changed the above and you know they are working then did you do the following.

when you filled the coolant back up did you undo any bleed screws in the top hoses running around the top of the engine( if you have got none then its a self bleed system) you then need to undo these all the way if you have them, then just trickle the coolant in to prevent build up of air lock as this will cause over heating.

then when you have reached the coolant level you need to put the bleed screws back if you have them if not dont worry its self bleed system, once the level is reached you need to start the engine and leave the coolant filler cap off then wait until the temp is up to normal running temp then refit the coolant cap.

if after doing the above check you have got heat inside the jeep turn the heater on to full heat and turn it on if it comes out hot then this indicates the coolant is pumping around the engine properly, if its cold then you have some problems.

if its cold then this could point towards faulty thermostat, faulty water pump or worse case blown head gasket, if you have heat and it still over heats then you need to check if the rad fan is coming on when it gets hot if its electronic, miss this if its running all the time.

if its still over heating and the fan is working as it should be then you can only have 2 problems left, the first would be the water pump but if you have heat in the jeep from the heater then this points towards the pump working, so all thats left is the head gasket this could have failed and is a big cause of over heating problems.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Bad resistor on A/C condensator.

After removing glove box, you will see door on a black box that secured by 2 screws (top and bottom) After opening that door it will come out with resistor that looks like a card. Replace it, and it should fix it.

2001 pontiac montana heater is now blowing cold


You need to check coolant level in rad, when cooled down, and top up your return bottle to marked level.
Start by having coolant (antifreeze) ready, remove your rad cap, and top up the rad level, then start the vehicle, and turn on your heater (not defrost) . Let it run with cap off for a while, and keep an eye on level of the rad & top up as necessary, but leave an inch or so from top.Let it run & observe your guage while doing so, and when gauge gets to normal operating temperature, your rad fan should come on, run for a while then shut off for a while, then back on again after little while, and off again. Let it do this about 3 times, top off the rad as described above, put cap back on tight, and top up your coolant return bottle to mark on side. If your rad fan doesn't come on around normal operating temperature, and gauge heads too much towards hot reading, shut vehicle off, that's an indication that your rad fan fuse has blown, or relay, or fan itself is defective. If all works well & you now have heat, great, but keep an eye on your coolant return bottle level for next while to see if it keeps going down, and add as needed if it is. If the level in bottle continues to go down, you've got a leak in the system somewhere & need to address it a.s.a. p. to hopefully avoid bigger problems, but we'll get to that only if we need to. Do what's up above and let us know the results.
