I would have it towed or repaired where its at. If its overheating you do not want to drive it. If it was hot enough to make it shake and choke out then your most likely facing some internal damage caused by overheating. cylinder heads can warp or crack, pistons can crack or worse, the block can crack.

Overheating when I sit idle.


Over heating the engine is a serious concern. With the hood raised you should hear the motorized fan turn on just behind the radiator as the engine requires additional cooling.. If you look in from the rear of the radiator you should see the fan blades.

This electric powered motor operates on a thermostat and when the engine temperature rises this fan should come on. I'm assuming from your description that when driving and air is flowing through the radiator as the car travels the engine is nor overheating.

Check fan motor thermostat, check fan motor and check wiring.

Motor engine cooling fan only runs as engine temperature requires additional cooling.

Over heating


usually overheating problem arises from radiator plz flush the radiator with the radiator cleaner available in the market with directons available. usually you shake the cleaner open the cap and pour the full content into the radiator and drive for few hours. leave it to cool and rince with fresh water a couple of times till the cleaner is totally removed.
also wash with high pressure water the fins of the radiator as it gets choked from flies and insects.
pour fresh coolant in the radiatorthe
the other reason for this heating could be faulty thermostat located at the lower portion of radiator which restarts the when the engine hear exceed the prescribed temperature and it ***** dow automatically when cools. it goes on.
WARNING:- RADIATOR FAN CAN START ANY TIME SO PLEASE KEEP YOUR HANDS AWAY FROM THEM AS THEY CAN SLICE YOUR FINGERS COMPLETELY.
other problem you can view is when the engine is cool and the radiator is cool open the radiator cap and then run the engine to see if air bubbles are visible- coming inside the radiator. if that is the case then you have to go to the workshop and get the engine overhead gasket replaced.
other problem could be traced like when you come home after a drive check all the wheels if any of them are heated up excessively they could heat like an electric iron so be careful if that is the case then get your brakes overhauled.
ecsessive gas charged in car ac will also heat the car.

Car very hard to start in morning and when do finaly get it started revs right up and shakes bad till it warms up then revs just shake up and down 1996 323f 1.5


If the engine has a carb, I would say that the choke is stuck open. Check and use some penetrating oil to free the choke butterfly valves. Spray on the shaft and move the valves till they operate freely. If it is an automatic choke see that it opens and closes as the engine heats and cools.

1999 Olds Alero 4 cyl running hotter than normal. One mechanic says it's Heat sensor that opens and closes. The other mechanic who ran car says it was thermostat that turns on dual fans. Ok well one was...


REPLACE THERMOSTAT.ITS STICKING CLOSE TO KEEP COOLANT FROM CIRCULATING THROUGH ENGINE AND RADIATOR. THE FANS SHOULD COME ON WHEN VECHICLE SETTING AT A LONG IDLE.THE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR GET TO CERTAIN TEMPERATURE WHICH WILL COMPLETE CIRCUIT PCM SEND POWER TO COOLANT SENSOR THEN TO COOLANT FANS RELAYS AND FANS.IF VECHICLE OVER HEATING WHILE MOVING THERMOSTAT FAULTY.IF YOU TURN AC AND COOLANT FANS DONT RUN CHECK COOLANT FANS FUSE AND RELAY.IF COOLING FANS DONT TURN ON WITH AIR CONDITIONER ON EITHER COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR FAULTY OR PCM FAULTY.IF ALL LOOKS GOOD.IF ENGINE OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE.YOU HAVE BLOWN HEAD GASKET.

After the vehicle is running for an hour, the vehicle get hot and shut itself off.. After it cool down, it start up. We were told it might be in the steering column.


have you replaced yor thermostat? have you checked your radiator cooling fans to see if they are coming on while your car is heating up? when your temp. guage is halfway up your fan should come on. you can check fuses and relays in fuse box[black box under hood drivers side] check those to see if fuses are blown or if fan relays are coming on[ticking while engine heating up]radiator could need flushing out also, just narrow your search some by elimination. if you open radiator cap before you start engine,then start motor, let it warm up.look for circulation,,flow of fluid,bubbling, then thats a sign it's circulating,thermostat is good. no flow means that thermostat not opening,thats bad thermostat.replace the thermostat.if not that are fans coming on? when engine at mid range on temp. guage does fan come on? if not check fuses @ fan relay. if fan comes on ,it's good.check water pump pulley for wobbly pulley while motor not running, shake pulley back @ forth for play. any play in pulley means bad water pump. are the belts on? i went through everything i would look for myself. hope this finds your problem!!!!

Overheating 2003 dodge durango. What could be the problem??


When engine running, ensure no engine combustion gas bubbles in coolant resevoir (if so, the head gasket is blown).

Check cooling fans are operating ok (when required when car warms up), if not check
1) fuse,
2) relay operation,
3) heat sensor switch.

Replace thermostat.
When re-filling cooling system, bleed off any airlock as necessary.

Check for collapsing (soft) coolant hose on suction side of waterpump when engine revs above idle.

Overheating


Could be head,or head gasket blown.But change the thermostat and check to see if the cooling fan comes on after it warms up.Be sure not to have ac on.Watch the temp.be sure the fan starts and runs good,and then it goes off by itself.If the fan does not come on,then check for a blown cooling fan fuse,or a bad cooling fan relay.Be sure the cooling system is full,and has no air in the cooling system.Coolant sensor could be bad also(this is what tells the ecm to turn on the relay that controls the fan.When the radiator is full,and the engine is cool,or cold,start the engine with the radiator cap off,and look to see if coolant gushes out of the radiator while the car runs.If ti does,head,or head gasket is blown.
