Sounds like the thermostat is stuck closed preventing the coolant from circulating. it needs to be replaced.

Optra is leaking fluid from somewhere and is overheating, how can it be fixed


Have you checked all the hoses? Next time it heats up, open the hood, or look underneath and see where its coming from!

Suburban overheats while driving but cools while stopped. Heat works very good


the flushing of the radiator did nothing as it only cleans out the already open cores but the blocked cores are still blocked. Fit a new radiator and possibly the bottom radiator hose as it may be sucking in as well restricting the flow of coolant from a partially blocked radiator cores.

Keeps overheating. brand new thermostat, it has coolant. drives fine for bout 7 mins then starts to overheat.


This could be that your water pump is going bad because this pump lets new colder radiator fluids to circulate through the engine block to help it to not overheat. Another thing is your engine light come on when this happens? If your engine light came on that you should take this car right away to Advance Auto Parts store to check the OBD II codes. You also have to check to make sure that your radiator has fluid from the start so you know if there is any leaks.

Car is overheating, thermostat was changed and the radiator was flushed, car does not overheat while idoling, but when you start driving it overheats


It sounds like water pump may be your problem. It circulates a 50/50 mixture of glycol (or some form of) and water through the engine block and cylinder head and back through the radiator. In the radiator the mixture is cooled when air passes over the fins of the radiator. This is accomplished by driving or a mechanical/electrical fan when stationary. The water pump also circulates the mixture through the heater core giving the car heat. If the water pump is not circulating the water back to the radiator to cool, it will overheat. More heat is caused by the engine when driving (much less heat when idling), hence the overheating while driving.
I hope this helps and good luck!
