Yes, have a machanic check out your fan switch and see if this is the issue... if not... installing a new/bigger radiator and air intake will help keep the motor cool. If this is mostly happening after driving short distances, try sitting in your car with the motor running for about 5 minutes after you park. This should let the motor cool down properly and cool your troubles as well :)

Cooling fan/ Radiator indicator


I would recommend first to check the coolant level. If the coolant level is too low it can cause the fan to run if it detects too low of a coolant level. Also, the low warning can be a result of a low level. Make sure to check the level with the engine cold, and not running.

I have a 1992 Toyota Camry. New radiator, but it overheated one day and I was told that I had "cracked my heads". I stopped driving it for a few days and one day drove it around for about five...


more likely to be a thermostat/fan temp sensor or fan problem.(dont you just love armchair mechanics,any decent tech would start with the cheapest/obvious solution and work up).

Hello Sir, I have replaced the radiator, radiator heat sensor, radiator cap, and all hoses. There are no leaks coming from the engine. I have also replaced the anti-freeze with BMW manufactured...


After the car is cool and has been sitting for a while, remove the radiator cap, have someone start the car, the coolant in the radiator should drop a little, and there should be movement, if there is no movement, let the car run for a while, with some systems it won't cycle enough to notice until the engine warms up. If there is still no movement, you likely have a bad water pump and/or thermostat.
Another method as a "just to be sure", drain the coolant overflow tank, and fill it with clean distilled water. Drive the car for a few days (carefully not to overheat it obviously, if the engine is getting too hot to drive normally don't do this test). If after a few days of driving the fluid in the overflow tank is still clear (water), then there is no circulation in the system.
It's usually best to start by replacing the thermostat, and then re-check. If that doesn't fix the problem it is most likely a water pump, or in very rare cases a plugged radiator or coolant passage.

Overheating problem. I have had my t-stat, belts, hoses, water pump, radiator shroud, fan shroud, fan pulley, fan bearing, and fan clutch replanced on my 97 BMW 528I. My car is fine for a while then it...


hi
has it been bled correctly since all that work? Sounds like an air lock. Raise the front of the car as high as possible and chock rear wheels. Open bonnet, take off header tank cap and start the car. This helps any trapped air get to surface easier. No harm in also squeezing the hoses for a bit.

Replace the thermostat and if that doesn't fix it, replace the radiator.
