Car is overheating even though the fan is connected directly.

can you turn the fan easily when the engine is off ?
if the answer is yes, you have a viscous fan hub ( fan clutch) and it is in need of replacing
the fan will spin but has no direct drive to pull the air through the radiator
if the fan is bolted directly to the water pump shaft hub, the I suggest that you start with a compression test, then a coolant system pressure test , followed by a radiator flow test to check for blocked cores

My 2004 model ford bantam always getting hot when am driving would u answer me any one now this please ?

Many possibilities, first check water/coolant level, check for leaks after running engine for about 10 mins, or sitting overnight, then check radiator air flow is not restricted, and fins are in reasonable order, check fan, make sure it cuts in before engine gets to hot, check if there is water in the oil (looks creamy) or oil in the water, if so you need a head gasket and/or a new head. flush engine block with high pressure water in reverse flow direction, then check thermostat, use thermometer, put in a pot of water temp, is stamped on body of thermostat, if not, bring to boil, should open well before boiling point, replace if needed, check water pump fins are not worn away. get specialist to use lazer temp gauge.

Hope this helps.

1991 ford capri softtop overheating, thermostat found fully open when removed after 3km run temp 120 on gauge. no miss during run no water in oil but appear to have a blockage could this be the pump at...

Most likely is a clogged radiator. Next would be the pump fins rusting off, not allowing pumping. Both reasons would be because antifreeze was not run in the engine over the years, and rust could clog the radiator, and water would rust off the pump fins...I'm still betting on the radiator though...good luck...Chris

My 98 chevy malibu is running a little hot. the heads are not cracked.changed the anti freeze.change the thermostate. what could be the problem

If your engine is running fine with no miss in it possibilities could be radiator fan or water pump if the radiator fan is working fine it could be the water pump. I have seen a water pump after removing it where the fins on the pump were completely worn out causing the overheating.Let me know how this turns out for you thanks.

The fan on our 2005 Dodge pickup is wobbling and of course making noise. How difficult to replace maybe water pump or bearings. How do I know if it is water pump?

I'm assuming your radiator fan is bolted directly to the water pump. Grab one of the fins and rock it back and forth. If you see the water pump pulley move at all, that is your problem. You're going to need a fan clutch wrench set to remove the fan (or some people use an impact chisel to break it free, but I don't recommend that). Then it's just a few bolts, make sure to scrape all the old gasket clean before installing the new water pump.

Replaced leaking water pump now engine keeps overheating unless i put in blank thermostat in 1998 subaru forester 2.5 twin cam. bleed air from system- water pump turns counter clockwise but fins in pump...

yes that is your problem. the water pump is made to turn clockwise. when the engine runs it turns clockwise right! if it turns counter clock wise it will not circulate coolant and it will over heat. the only thing I can say is the drive belt may be on wrong causing it to run backwards.

May want to by higher rated T stat. Depending on region of the country you can get up to a 210 F t stat.

Did the problem start after a drain of the cooling system? Could be air in the heater core.
