Re: 93 lebaron overheats slowly
Sounds like it could be your radiator could be slightly plugged or rear dirty on the outside causing very little airflow over a period this will cause an overheat .do this car have an electric radiator fan ? and when motor os hot or even over heating the electric fan motor should be spinning until cooler if no repair that. are you loosing coolant ? after a long hot drive put your hand on the front side of the rad with the motor off and feel the center of the rad then put your hand on the corners see if there is a differance if there is the rad is plugged try to flush it or replace rad and thermostat ok

If your car is able to go 25-30 miles before overheating,I have seen where a loose bolt or tensioner could cause you to go a while before overheat.The oil pump works but if the belt is loose,it cannot keep up with the required flow and slowly overheats.If this is not your problem,let me know and I will figure something else out.Good luck!

Drain and flush the cooling system...more than once if needed. Replace the thermostat with a 180 degree...the OE stat. is 200 degree. Clean the outside of the radiator and a/c condensor, make sure there is no debris in the cooling fins and they flow air freely. Fill system with 50/50 mixture. If it still attempts to overheat...check your cat convertor, it's clogged and creating too much back-pressure Hope this helps...
i have a 2000 olds intrigue thats been overheating alot lately the other day my drain plug for my radiator came on the way to work so i lost all my antifreeze on the way, i got to work and wound getting another plug to replace...the one that came out...topped off antifreeze...anyhow i go home and car overheats on the way home...i took it to a radiator shop today and they checked for, leaks, checked the water pump, pressure tested it...and they told me that the only thing they found was a airlock, but however the guy did recommend taking it to a mech and having it checked for a blown headgasket, so i go home today and i noticed my temp gauge going up and down on the way home it would get hot then cool down then get hot again...the car did eventually start to overheated so i pulled over and let the car cool down...i know this is getting frustrating, so do you have any recommendations or solutions as to whats cause the car to overheat.
I had a similar problem with 2003 nissan sentra, no heat , and car would stall on road on and off. Became a problem more frequently stalling. Took to nissan and they said it was head gasket. Fixed it and never had problem again. But i had it fixed at a local dealership since nissan was charging 1000.00 compared to 550.00. I replaced water pump and thermostat first b4 this and no cigar.
