Northstar engine over heating; replaced thermostat, flushed radiator, still overheats


have a compression test done to check head gasket and cracked head/s. Flushing a radiator is a waste of time as blocked cores will not clear so have a flow test done on the radiator to gauge the number of blocked cores. Check the fins condition on the cores . If you have a viscous fan hub on the fan then replace it ( indications are that it overheats at lights ,when going slow or high rpms going slow but cools down when moving at speed). Check timing and air/fuel ratio as lean fuel mixture will cause overheating Check that the bottom radiator hose is not collapsing under high rpm blocking off the water flow.

Is the temp gauge accurate.Is car overheating, maybe car is not running hot.Check engine temp with different source.Gauges can go bad over time.

Sounds to me like the impeller in the water pump is corroded bad enough that you now have no volume of water flow.If a pressure test on the cooling system shows no leaks and the rad fan does in fact run then this is the most likely solution,if the fan does not run you may need a temperature switch or a fan motor.

Running hotter than normal looks like it started leaking bad under motor now


There is well-established procedure for trouble shouting the over heating.
Does the car overheat in driving mode?
Yes.
Are you losing coolant?
No. Check water pump (including belt) and thermostat.
If yes make a radiator compression test. You might have a bad cylinder head gasket.
The car doesn’t overheat in driving mode, but overheat in idle.
Does the fan runs?
No.
Check the fan assembly for a bad motor, loose fan blades, or bad connector.
Check the codes for a bad temperature sensor.
Check cooling fan relay and fuse.
If this isn’t enough to solve problem, then send the car at dealer for a “check and advice”.

My 1995 Riviera is overheating and this has become a head scratcher (engine 3.8). Last year the radiator, water pump, belts and hoses were replaced. About a week ago it started to overheat. I replaced the...


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 97 Plymouth Neon 4 cyl SOHC. I recently bought it and it keeps overheating. I replaced the thermostat, temp coolant sensor, radiator cap, and flushed the radiator twice. I also took it to a shop...


CHECK WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE IF LEAKING. BECAUSE OF SHAFT BEARING FAILURE CAUSE CAR TO OVERHEAT. MAKE SURE COOLING FAN WORKING CHECK FUSE AND RELAY.SCAN CAR TO MAKE SURE THE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR WORKING.IT CONTROLS FAN OPERATION.BESURE YOU ARE USING CORRECT COOLANT MIXTURE.YOU NEED 50 % ANTIFREEZE AND 50 % WATER. TO RAISE BOILING POINT.TOO MUCH WATER IN COOLANT SYSTEM WILL CAUSE CAR TO OVERHEAT.

Overheating , heater not working


When the car is completely cool,check the electric fan(s) for smooth rotation.

Clean/check/change the thermo sensor,contact and wire.

===

Excavate air pocket in coolant system / check for head gasket leak

This test will kill two birds with one stone.

===

MAKE SURE THE COOLANT SYSTEM and ENGINE IS COLD!

RAN THIS TEST IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA ONLY!

You will spill some coolant during this air pocket purge test.......BE KIND TO THE ENVIRONMENT and ANIMAL please clean up after the test!

===

Put the front end on a pair of ramp or park your car on a VERY STEEP HILL (radiator facing top of the hill) .

Top of the coolant reserve tank

Let it ran for 10-15 minutes.

Monitor for air pockets escaping from coolant reserve tank.

Small amount of bubbles is OK at 1-5 minute mark

After the thermostat open up (after 195 F warm up) at
5-12 minute mark or after high idle you should see less bubbles.

If you do not see any in rush of bubbles then your thermostat may be partially stuck or rusted badly inside the thermostat hosing.

Give the thermostat host few gentle taps.

If you see larger bubbles surfacing after 15 minutes then should do a hydrocarbon (HC) dye test to test for potential head gasket leak.

Let engine cold down and top off coolant reserve tank.

Start monitor for coolant lost

===

A coolant flush is require every 2 years or 24,000 miles.

I recommend the thermostat that has a relief pop-let to reduce the change of burst radiator and coolant hoses.

Make sure you get a new thermostat gasket,black RTV and fresh coolant for the job.

The Fan doesn't work . Car overheated


Check the fuses, test the relay. If those are good, replace the fan. They go bad all the time. I've replaced many of them. Replace the t-stat and flush the coolant while you're at it, the car's ten years old.

It is not a bad sensor, if
1-Inside your OIL cap has some milky stuff as a result from water mixing with oil from overheat.
2- You are losing water.
If both are happening, you have a blown head gasket. Bad news
If non of these happens, your are good, just replace the thermostate. Good luck.
