Seems like you might have a bad head gasket remove radiator cap and let it run. make sure the antifreeze is flowing if not it could be the water pump prop many car makers are using plastic props and they fail with time.also very possible that thermostat is bad was it overheating before it received a radiator ,cap and thermostat if so it is between head gasket.,and water pump but if you have no flow it is possible that the water pump prop is broken .there is head gasket test that can be done most shops have them and cost a little to do.to be sure.

Low coolant is the usual culprit, followed by a bad thermostat. When the car is cold take the radiator cap off and check the coolant level and add as needed, then make sure overflow tank is at the correct level. If the radiator is low but the overflow has fluid, replaced the radiator cap.

2002 chrysler 300m special overheating


Only thing I do not see in your list and the most overlooked is a new radiator cap. The radiator cap itself is extremely important to regulate the pressure in the system and just something as simple as this could be the problem. If this doesn't I would have to know more. Is the heat working? If not could indicate a clog in the heater core. When you stop does the coolant overflow into the overflow (common condition when the radiator cap) is bad. Since you have done everything it is my guess since you replaced the radiator you used the old cap.

Ive changed most componan to keep it from overheating still the same


Please list the components you have changed.
Check the following:
1) Radiator pressure cap.2) Cooling system for leaks.3) Make sure radiator fan cuts in when up to temperature.4) Make sure that no bubbles are pushed out of radiator with cap off and engine running. If this happens, then perform a pressure test. You likely have a failed head gasket.
5) Inspect inside of radiator for signs of corrosion. If heavy corrosion is present, then blockages within the radiator could have occurred.5) Check thermostat operation.6) Make sure that no modifications have blocked the radiator's air flow.7) Make sure that any under engine cowlings are still present. If these have been removed and not replaced, then airflow through the radiator can be affected on some models.

Car heats up very quickly no end in site


there are a number of things that can cause a car/truck/suv to overheat! #1. bad thermostat. #2. partially clogged radiator. #3. faulty radiator cap. #4. bad clutch on fan,or bad electric fan,or bad fan relay. #5. blown head gasket. These are the most common among all types of vehicles,I did notice you said "quickly" overheats. If the car is totally cold and overheats within 3-5 min of starting up, that is a pretty good tell-tell sign of a blown head gasket. if it takes a while longer to overheat,check the other items i listed.( always start with easyer and cheeper items first and work your way up from there) hope this helps ya out....yz-maniac.

Even after replacing the radiator, thermostat and


The problem with overheat is due to poor coolant circulating. The main culprit is the Radiator. When the radiator is clogging up, coolant can't be circulating. The stagnant coolant inside the engine water jacket keeps absorb heat from combustion chambers having no way to dissipate the heat then the engine is overheated. You can test the water pump by removing the thermostat, then hooking everything back. Open the radiator cap, then turn on the engine to see if water flowing down to several small tubes inside the radiator. If water can't go down fast enough to cause over flow at radiator opening then your 90 Legend Radiator already got clogged up. Replace with a new radiator, not even a rebuilt one. Good luck.
