There could be several problems with it overheating. 1. Low coolant level. Top off with recommended coolant. 2. Have the radiator cap pressure tested. A cap that cannot hold proper pressure can allow fluid to leak. 3. Spent coolant. When coolant breaks down, it cannot keep the engine cool properly. A coolant flush would be recommended. 4. A stuck thermostat. A stuck thermostat can impede the flow of coolant through the system. 5. Coolant leaks. It could be the radiator, water pump, thermostat housing, hoses, or freeze plugs. Have a pressure check done on the system. 6. Blown head gasket. When a vehicle overheats, it puts a strain on the engine and gaskets. Have a compression check done on each cylinder. These are some steps to take toward getting this issue resolved. Good luck.

I have a 2002 Nissan Maxima, and the blower motor will only work on high. I have replaced the switch(resistor), and the motor. When you turn the blower motor switch on, the lights lite up, but motor will...

you replaced the switch or the resistor. They are two different parts. The resistor should be located near the blower motor. Since high speed bypasses the resistor I would say the resistor is the problem.

Also you didn't mention if you had auto heat, auto heat with navigation, or manual heat. It can make a difference in how to approach your problem. The info I provided above would be for manual heat since it is more common.

For more info on blower motor diagnoses you can click here. Your would be a ground side controlled system since the switch supplies the path to ground.

under the passenger side of the dash right above the passengers feet. With the key on and the blower set to high tap the end of the blower motor with a screwdriver. If it starts to work replace it.

Over heating , no water in oil , no oil in water

fan clutch could be bad if it doesnt have electric fans. thermostat could be stuck shut. water pump may be bad s the impeller inside can come loose from the shaft the belt drives. dont drive until fixed as any new motor noise is sign of potential internal motor damage and may lead to engine failure.

Heating problem in a 1999 ford windstar

This noise is the blend door electric stepper motor, this motor controls the door inside the heating ducts that diverts air across the heater core to heat the van, either the bleen door is warped from heat and stuck, or the blend door motor is defective, in order to fix this the dash assembly must be pulled to gain access to the motor and the door.

No heat

    Pul the glove box down ( release the tabs that prevent it from opening all the way). On top of the heater case you will see a drive motor. Use a screwdriver to pry the motor up to remove. Take a mirror and look at the shaft that the motor attaches to. It most likely is broken . I have seen some where a small hole was drilled through the shaft of the motor and a small finish nail was inserted( must fit snug) and cut off to protrude about 1/8 inch on each side. Reinstall the motor and retest. If it dont work the door needs replacement.
