Fill the water to the proper level with it cold. Start car and look inside overflow can. If as it warms up you see bubbles in the tank the chances are very good that you have a blown head gasket. Good luck and have a great day.

Let's take a look at some of the most common causes. This is the primary cause of engine overheating. Possible leak points include hoses, the radiator, water pump, thermostat housing, heater core, head gasket, freeze plugs, automatic transmission oil cooler, cylinder heads and block. Perform a pressure test to see if you have any leaks. This year had rust issues with the cooling system, was the TSB done?

Overheating light comes on. I pour more antifreeze in and its good for a while. 207 Cooper s. Thermostat housing has been replaced.

Thermostat housing was replaced but the actual thermostat was replaced also?
If it was replaced you might have issues with the water pump, the impellers of the water pump are made of plastic and some of them might be broken.
Also when the thermostat housing was replaced was all the air purged from the cooling circuit?
Air still trapped inside cooling system can create overheating issues.
Never go over 50/50 coolant mix, a higher concentration of coolant can impede a proper engine cooling.

1998 chrysler started overheating, then started making horrible grinding noise. Just bought this car a week ago. already replaced distributor cap, rotor cap and air filter b/c it was missing really bad. ...

Thanks for choosing FixYa Debra and welcome to FixYa. Chrysler is superior with electrical problems and failures. If it is still overheating, that may be the cause of the missing. Check the coolant level, hoses, and make sure coolant is in the radiator. The most common issue to overheating is a thermostat. This is after you have checked all the hoses and have checked for leaks. You could have internal engine damage from the overheating, such as a warped head or leaking head gasket. If it happened after the overheating, the overheating probably caused the problem. I believe the engine needs to be taken out and looked at. I know it is not what you want to hear, but it makes sense if the noise didn't start until the overheating. Now, it may also be an electrical issue cause Chrysler's are known for it. I would suggest testing the distributor wires/connections, look at the spark plug wires, anything to do with the ignition system.

Vehicle overheating after running a few mins. changed thermostat, helped a bit but gauge still going 3/4 way to hot? pics in manual not same as engine in vehicle, any ideas??

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. The thermostat is the most common issue with overheating. This is just a recap of other issues that can cause overheating. Be sure to check your coolant level and make sure you are not leaking coolant in the engine compartment. You may need to buy a new coolant cap. Make sure your fans are working properly. If they are not, check the fuse for the fans. Make sure your radiator is not leaking and working properly. Make sure there ae no damaged hoses or missing clamps. If all this checks out, it may be your water pump. If you have any questions, just let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a 1995 dodge neon and it is leaking coolant and the fans are also running intermittantly. would the leaking coolant cause the fan problem or would it be a thermostat issue or would the leak cause a...

there are two sensors on that cooling system, one for the gauge or light in the car the other to turn on the fans at operating tempature. to test for a thermostat issue, as the car comes up to temp check to see if the upper and lower radiaror hoses are the same temp, (laser thermoter recomended) i use my hands. if one is hot and one is cold than a thermostat is stuck closed. and yes a leak can cause a problem with both the temp sensor and the thermostat.

My 96 aurora keeps overheating and I already changed a leak I had in my heater hose. I believe the leak is coming from the left passenger side probably front or mid front.

It could be a faulty thermostate or a bad water pump. Water pump is on the passneger side where the fan belts are. Good luck
