Are your cooling fans coming on? if you turn your a/c on does the cooling fan come on? when you ake the radiator cap off do you see the fluid circulating? if not,, replace the thermostat. make sure!!! the fans are turning!!! are you leaking fluid? if you look at radiator with the cap off and you see the fluid running fromside to side it;s crculating so the water pump is working,, if not,, then check for wobbly pulley at water pump where the belt is,, if the pulley wobbles,, the water pumps bad. if not wobble,, try replacing thermostat. hope this helps!

Check coolant reservoir level, check cooling fan if working, check if no leaks on the water pump...If engine newly installed, chances are drive belts are not installed properly.

My 2007 Suzuki forename with 56,000ml. Ac running hot and engine running hot. What to do?


forename?
07 forenza (seems all posts are for this 1 suzuki)
a problematic car for sure....?
in what country, car has 6 engines, but 1 in USA>
so cant help you lacking where you are, (name a country,not your IPaddress)
we have the 2.0L engine, in USA< this is a USA forum so......??

ok the computers in your car are way smarter than say 1988 Samurai.
the PCM that runs the engine, for SURE cuts AC to keep engine from self destructing!! AC can do that,,,,,,
want a cracked or warped engine head ?
no.
the PCM cuts the a/c, and if engine is overloaded. or overheated
so forget the A/C
fix engine overheating (primary issues)
and guess wha?t , that gets worse, so delaying the fix
a $5 part compounds to $3000 new engine.
why not just get car fixed.???
"we cant teach you 50 years of engine problems in 5min time."
best post ever that.. here.

1: fuses good? check them it means.
2: water leaks?
3: levels wrong? (in actual rad, cold tested)
4: fan belts loose?
5: bad thermostat
6: bad water pump, impeller rusted to zip, do to abuse.
7: over heats parked only or moving fast or only up hills,? key facts if only parked the fan is dead.
8; lots more, but i end here

Why does 2000 s40 volvo turbo runs hot and the fan stays on after shut off


fans are designed to run on after you shut engine down as engine temperature rise after switching off . running hot could be caused by the top hose having gone soft when you rev the engine the water pump sucks the hose flat stopping the coolant flow or the radiator is blocked and need flushing out

Does the fuel filter get hot while running


It's just gas passing through it. Only thing would make it hot is if it was near a hot exhaust, or a hot engine if located in the engine compartment.

My 2002 a-6 3.0 suddenly started running rough-engine light is on and blinks at 45mph. runs doggedly


Check oil and coolant levels (at the radiator cap) first. Run fault codes to find which sensor triggered the engine light . The light is to tell you that the engine is in danger of failure so do not dismiss the light as not important.. Hot smells mean that the engine is very hot and you may not have any coolant in the system to activate the temp light or gauge.

Engine hot, oil dip stick too hot to touch gages all fine no problems with it just got raditor flushed thought that was the problem


Your dipstick is supposed to be hot. The oil runs over the hot mechanisms and back into the pan and cooler oil cycles through again. The warmer your engine the better it will run. ( don't want it to overheat though) my car runs about halfway between the middle and three fourths mark on the thermostat. And it runs great. Hope this helps!:)

Mustang ran hot now starts but engine sounds rough, still running hot


this could be a number of problems , firstly with engine running remove radiator cap see if large bubbles of air appear, blown head gasket. second depending how long engine is running before temp rises to overheating, thermostat. third, O2 sensor could be damaged this will cause rough running and slight increase in engine temp.(unlikely if idles well) fourthly damaged valves (inlet/exhaust)

Car won't run when hot


It could be neither, If your engine is getting too hot, it can be in the cooling system, like the water pump, radiator, belt and the like, or engine timing may be off, and so forth. You even may have low coolant or a head gasket problem or cracked head, depending on the diagnostics. Just changing the spark plugs by themselves will not make the engine run hot, and while you can have ign module, etc failure when the engine is at normal operating temperatures, they by themselves should not make the engine run hot. Hope this helps you, Rick

does it run hot while driving or in traffic?
if running hot at idle could be water pump not circulating enough try revving engine some and see if temp comes down. also check your fan clutch.
if running hot going down road probably radiator
