2. try to check your radiator it might be clogged. clean it
3. Check your thermostat it might not function properly. remove it if possible

My Kia Preggio Van, 2002 built, Diesel overheats. No leaks anywhere (made pressure tests). Radiator is new, water pump is new, thermostat works perfectly. Airbubbles continuously come out of the radiator....


A head gasket leak may be letting exhaust gasses get pushed into the coolant system. To check for that, have the test done for exhaust gas in the coolant. You may be able to rent the tester at a parts store, then you would just have to buy the special fluid. An easy test, simple to do. (Read the directions: I have never used one.) You just draw some coolant into the tester. The fluid will turn a certain color if hydrocarbons are present. Hydrocarbons in the coolant is exhaust gas, and pretty certain it is getting in through a head gasket leak. That might explain the overheating, too. A cylinder compression test might show that, too, as a cylinder (or two adjacent cylinders) with low compression.
I can't think of any way air could get into water down at the water pump. The lower radiator hose, the lower half of the radiator, and the water pump are completely submersed in coolant. Any air down there would immediately rise to the top and out the radiator or into the top of the engine water passages. No way for air to get trapped down there.
Good luck, post back with what you find out or determine to be the problem, it helps everyone.

Cracked block symptoms


crack block problem would cause engine overheating problems check radiator see if radiator has a leak could have rust in radiator.check for leaking hoses check water pump see if you wet signs where pump leaking at weep hole. if you suspect crack cylinder head.you need to do a cylinder leak detector test using air pressure looking for stream of bubbles in the radiator.

My kia sedona 2003 is overheating is it the water pump


Probably not the water pump. The most common cause is rusted out/leaking underbody heater rear heater lines. The steel portions of the lines rust and leak coolant. The low coolant level will cause the engine to overheat. If overheated repeatedly these engines will usually warp the cylinder heads. This will cause severe overheating and may damage the radiator and other components due to combustion gasses entering the cooling system. A cooling system pressure test should be done to check for external leaks, and a block test can be done to check for the presence of combustion gasses entering the cooling system.Make sure to check coolant level in the radiator when cold, NOT in the reservoir on the inner fender. This could also be caused by something as simple as a thermostat or radiator fans that aren't working.

2005 kia spectra overheating


There are lots of things that can cause enginr overheating. It could be anything from cooling system leaks to inoperative engine cooling fans, a clooged radiator, blown cylinder head gaskets, or a defective water pump. The problem needs to be properly diagnosed before anyone can help you with repair instructions.

Kia 2700 overheating


could be a number of things, 1. water pump not working 2. Thermostat stuck (replace if its boiled) 3. air lock in system. 4. Head gasket. 5. cracked head/block. I presume you have checked that you belt is not broken, are there any signs of leaking around the waterpump? if there are, change the pump, If the engine has overheated, change the thermostat. these are the most common things, other than these 2 it is going to take further examination for cylinder head problems or blocked water ways. Go for the thermostat first, its probably the cheapest part to replace, and see if that cures your problem.

Its keeps overheating i change radiator and head gasket and still overheating


Did you also replace your thermostat? If it's stuck closed, engine will overheat.
When you did the HG, did you have head checked for cracks or warpage? A cracked head will cause severe overheating.A warped head may or may not show signs of external coolant leakage. Either of these conditions can occur if overheating is severe enough.
Are your hoses in good shape? An old hose can collapse when it's hot, and restrict flow. Feel them (when cool) for any sign of sponginess.
New radiator cap? The cap provides a seal to pressurize the cooling system.
Finally, how about your water pump? Any sign at the weep-hole of leaking coolant? Your water pump inner seal is bad, remedy is a new water pump. Or maybe the pumps' fins have corroded and not pushing coolant sufficiently. If there is corrosion, get the whole system flushed and start anew.
Pull your spark plugs and look for any sign of coolant in the cylinders. I know it's a pain to keep going back and checking, but you gotta be thorough. Plugs may be blistered white from overheating, but if you get it fixed, they should be alright.
Now, finally, really: sometimes, Randy, just a small air pocket in coolant can cause overheating. So, make sure you bleed the system if it has a bleed screw, or fill, cap loose, run engine till t-stat opens, level in radiator drops, then re-fill, and add coolant to your overflow reservoir to around the full hot mark. Tighten cap, and you are done. Good luck.

Nissan 350z.2004.overheating problems./changed fan and radiator .still gets past midway at times... has 2 thermostats. tossed one out wherers the second one located??live in fla the hottest place


I am not aware that there are indeed two thermostats on the 350Z. I would be more suspicious of the water pump causing the overheating problem. Is the water pump leaking? Leaking is a sure sign that the water pump is defective, but I have seen water pumps that were not leaking, but were still faulty because they were partially clogged up. Anyway, hope this helps and best wishes.
