Check the electric radiator cooling fan. Let the engine run until it's warmed up fully. The fan should turn on when the temperature gets high enough. If it doesn't, see if it's getting voltage to the plug. If it is, then replace the relay. If not, replace the fan motor.

Thermostat is the wrong temperature range for the vehicle or it is installed backwards. It is opening too soon and not allowing the vehicle engine to come up to operating temperature soon enough. Have system checked, replace thermostat with correct temperature for vehicle

There may be an issue with your oil pressure sensor.
You also probably have a faulty water pump that is functioning under revs but not at idle, what happens if you rev it mildly at idle

We put a new radiator & thermostat in about a week ago & are still losing water & overheating. Big leak inside front drivers side tire. Is this where the water pump is?


check the color of the oil. if it is white or yellowish you have water in oil which usually indicates a a blown head gasket
check color of radiater coolant for same.if white or creamy/oily you have oil in coolant which usually indicates cracked engine block

Hi, check you have heat coming out the heater in the car put it on hottest setting and see what happens if it comes out cold then the chances are the head gasket has gone and is pushing gasses into the coolant system causing an air lock and then over heating.

check the oil for signs of a white substance look on the oil level stick and also inside the oil filler cap if their is any signs of milky substance then this is proof head gasket has gone.

let me know what you find out ok

Random Overheating Problem on Peugeot 206


It sounds like your thermostat has gone bad and sticking close, Replace the Thermostat and Antifreeze. When replacing the thermostat, buy a fail safe thermostat so you will not have a overheating problem when the thermostat fails. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

Overheating & won't start. Oil & coolant OK.


Sounds like your thermostat is stuck in the closed position. I'd replace the thermostat and flush & refill the coolant.
