I'm having a problem with my Actros mercedes truck V8 cylinder is overheating when you drive long distance what are the main courses


The thermostat may be stuck closed (should overheat in 10-15 minutes, maybe less if you are driving in hills or with heavy load).

Otherwise, your fan many not be working. The fan should definitely start before it overheats and it should be running when it is in an overheat condition. Fan is on the back side of radiator.

I have a 1995 esi eagle talon it overheats am guessing cause I see a water leak coming from the bottom of the car but the funny thing is the engine coolant warning light don't come on when it...


water pump failed, and probably the bulb has gone on the dash or the sensor in the water system, it would probably be the the water pump bearing, so the pump would need to be replaced. depending on the engine fitted it will also need the timing kit replaced the kit would have a pump as well. overheating is the air in the system, it will damage the other parts like the thermostat. crake the head it could do more as well so replace the pump etc.

Coolant flued is full but after engine got hot, it overheat.


the thermostat may be bad or the extreme is you have a head gasket issue. Any mechanic should be able to diagnose this in about 15 minutes.
If you know how to replace the thermostat I would do this first since its only a 10 or so dollar part.

you have a 1.8 liter turbo engine correct? it is the water pump that is driven by the timing belt. 100% positive this is correct i have replaced countless water pumps for this reason. the reason it overheats while driving is becuase the splines on the water pumps plastic impeller are gone and it is just freewheeling on the pump shaft. at idle the pump spins slow enough to get the impeller to turn. very very very very common. replace water pump timing belt and tensioner.
