Tranny fluid low this could cause the over heat
flushing the rad doesnt always clear the clog sometimes it can make things worst
water pump not flowing properly too much calcium build up inside
if a/c compressor connected the bearings could be seizing slowly maken a drag on the engine to overheat
these are somethings i can think of off the top of my head at this time i hope this helped

2001 impala overheating replaced water pump ,thermostat,after driving 6 miles heater stops blowing warm air car overheats?


sounds like head gasket, shes putting pressure out into your rad, check your big hose when idling see if they swell up with pressure,another way to check is to leave rad cap loose.

Hi i own a 1998 dodge grand caravan and the problem i have is that i fill the rad up and all the water comes out of the over flow draining the rad. can you please help me? thanks wendy


not good wendy, most likely cause is a blown cylinder head gasket, but have someone check to make sure the thermostat is opening( if you let the engine idle for around 10min the top radiator hose will get hot when the thermostat opens if the engine overheats before the top hose gets hot then replace the thermostat) if the thermostat is poening then supect the head gasket.

Where does water come out,if at all?It probably is a water pump since you already changed thermostat.Probably takes 15-20 minutes of good running speed to overheat?Greg

What is the possible response to a 1991 Toyota Corolla that has the tendency to overheat. Gaskets are new and it just had repair work done within the last two days. Sensor has been changed. Timing has been...


You either need a new thermostat or the water pump impeller is worn out,this is if the rad fan is working,if the rad fan is not working then you likely need a coolant sensor or a rad fan relay.the water pump impeller is not a serviceable part ,so of it is worn you will need to replace the pump.

Radiator whines and overheats when not moving


Have someone flush cooling system & check condition of rad for debris in front of rad & blow or spray it out as necessary. Next time it runs hot, turn your heater temperature up high, blower fan on high, and see if gauge starts to come back down a little. If it does, my guess is your rad needs replacing, or at least consider trying a good reverse flushing of the system first, then rad.
