Check the coolant level.
Check that the cooling fan goes on when hot.
Check that the thermostat is opening.

These are a few things to check.

What are causes for overheating?


If the smoke is white you probably have a hole in a hose for the coolant system. But to answer your question you could have a thermostat stuck, fan belt broke or slipping, hole in a radiator hose, or a heater hose with a hole in it allowing the coolant to spray on the hot engine causing it to smoke and if bad enough causing the engine to shut down.

The engine works but the car overheats and smoke comes out. The fans are also not working.


The fans not working is probably why it overheated. If it got too hot, it could have done major damage. Do you see white smoke from your tailpipe?

Temp dial reads hot but is not overheating


The temp sensor, is a thermistor resistor supplying restricted voltage to the gauge depending on the heat of the engine, if it has gone faulty (close circuit) the gauge will read hot all the time. You need to find the sensor, generally near the top of the engine, thermostat area and unplug it, the gauge will then not read. Replace the sensor. (WHEN THE ENGINE IS COLD)

2002 dodge caravan sport overheated. It has a new radiator and hoses; we changed the thermostat and replaced the relay and pigtail for the cooling fans after it overheated but we still have the overheating...


Double check the thermostat and make sure the water pump is doing its job. To check the thermostat, simply take it out and reassemble the housing with out the unit. Run the engine and hopefully it will get warm to hot. If not check the pump.

Overheating,smoking and dying.now it ont start at


What is overheating ? Engine or tranny? You said you put tranny fluid in, but not in the engine right? Engine sounds like it is toast. Is there any abnormal look to the engine oil on the dipstick? Are you losing coolant?
If you add coolant with engine NOT hot, and watch the radiator fill spout with engine started and warming up, do you see water gurgling?
Do a compression test.

Mazda mx5 smoking problem


Please provide more details for analysis like:
- what is the mileage on your car?
- is it smoking continously or only intermittently? How much smoke is it?
- what colour is the smoke? bluish or sooty?
- does it smoke when engine is cold or hot?
- is your car losing power?
- is your car consuming motor oil and at what rate?
- has the engine ever been overheated?
- is there an engine MIL ( malfunction indicator light ) code flashing on your dash? If it has, then you need to get the workshop to run a scan of the engine's computer to find out what the possible faults are.
- by the way, is your mx-5 fitted with a rotary engine or the common 4-stroke piston engine?

1997 montero sport 3000 24valve v6


The most likely senario is that the water pump went bad which caused the overheating in the first place. Then after the engine shut down, the water pump seized up. When the engine was restarted, the timing belt started to smoke because the water pump, which runs off the timing belt, was not turning. Since the engine overheated to the point of shutting down, blown head gaskets are a possibility. Put a new timing belt and water pump on it and start it up. If it runs OK, you're good to go.
