Overheating! The van has new radiator, fluid, cap, heavy duty water pump, tsat, fan clutch. BTW the heads were redone not to long ago.


Did you change the thermostat? If not opening properly or far enough, that could be the cause of your overheating.

Use heater full blast with windows open to add additional cooling till you locate the source of the problem.

It appears that you have a viscous fan hub driving the fan or should I say failing to drive the fan. The fix is to replace it . If you have electric fans then there is a problem in the temp sensor system and the fans are not cutting in on temperature The problem you state is indicated by the fact that when driving there is sufficient air through the radiator to remove the heat from the radiator ..but when driving slow there is no air flow because the fan is not drawing air through the radiator and the temperature climbs until over heat is reached . Typical indicators of fan speed problem is overheating at stop sign/lights, slow heavy traffic driving, slow up hill driving, and rapid cool down as road speed is increased , the faster the speed the cooler the motor

Possible leaking head gasket, this will cause bubbles. Have pressure check done.

Temperature goes high without overheating


I am immediately inclined to think that the thermostat you currently have installed is the wrong one for your van. If it isn't overheating, then the thermo is opening at a hotter level than normal. Either that, or the thermo you have is opening late. If you want an easy test to see if this is the issue, remove the hose that goes to the thermostat, remove the thermostat, put the hose back, fill up whatever water came out and drive it around for awhile and see if it made a difference. If it now seems to open cooler, then the thermo needs to be replaced. If that doesn't work and it still seems the same, I would check the water pump or the belt that goes to it to make sure they are working correctly

It is possible that the pump failed because of an overheating problem. Make sure the fans run by turning on the air conditioning. They should operate as soon as it is turned on. Bad fans are a common problem. The pump should not have been leaking after replacement though. Make sure you have no leaks first and foremost. Then make sure the fans work. There is also a fan control module located in the area under the battery, but it is difficult to properly diagnose. If the fans do not turn on with the a/c, you can jump the wires at the thermo switch. One should be power, and when you jump to one wire they should go to low speed, the other high.
If you like you can ask more questions directly, I was a VW master tech from 2000 to 2008.

2003 ce lancer car keeps overheating... thermo fan isnt working... coolant is going but no leak.. checked fuses all seem fine.. not sure what to do next


It should be either the thermostat or the water pump.The water pump will sometimes allow you to go about 25-30 miles before it overheats.The thermostat would likely be the cause if once the temperature guage starts going up,it kind of just keeps going and overheats.You need to avoid driving and overheating as much as possible due to very bad engine damage.Hopefully you have a second car.You can call a couple shops,they normally will give you a free opinion,just describe it with as much information as you can to get an accurate one.Also you can get free estimates unless you plan to self-repair.Good luck!
