Without svt about half hour
find out the hourly rate at your garage
Most cases they will add about .1 or .2 to what the book call for
so at a labor rate of 60/hour about 30-40 bucks

I v checked the cooling system, no leaks, new water pump, water pipes solid, changed cyl. head gasket, new radiator cap, checked water level, oil level, fan working, water circulating.


no car make or model mentioned so getting an answer is hit and miss
however what you describe indicates a fan drive problem so if it is electric fan cooled-- check the fans for full blade speed ( weak motor operation) or if viscous fan hub ( fan clutch) replace the viscous hub
it is all about moving air through the radiator when the vehicle speed is slow and the engine rpms are high
if the fan is not doing the job of pulling air through the radiator , the car will overheat
at highway speeds the ram action of the air flow virtually makes a fan useless as there is more than enough air passing through the radiator to cool the water
Im guessing here but I suspect that you have a viscous fan hub

My 2004 3400 closed system ,runs hot in town unless heater is on. driving up a mountain pass it gets very hot.on a flat highway runs normal. new t state,resivior cap, both fans work no leaks or smell


Radiator fan motor or radiator fan thermostat defective/

Also there is a relay that operates the fan motor

In town not enough air passing through radiator allowing it to over temp.. With heater fan running acts like cooling fan keeping engine cool

Highway driving ample air passing through radiator without fan.

Hill climbing requires cooling fan/

Hope this helps?

Lincoln 2002 ls overheating


the fan will turn on when the engine temp reaches a set temperature and will only turn off when the engine drops below a certain temp and on the highway running hard it may stay on longer

Replaced thermastat but still overheating


OK, you have addressed the first possibility. There are a few more, each progressively more expensive to fix. First, are the radiator electric cooling fans operating? If you find the vehicle runs ok on the highway, but overheats around town in stop-and-go traffic, it could be that the fans are not running. Quick check for the fans - with the ignition on (the engine doesn't need to be running), move the cooling control to the A/C position. If the fans come on, they are good, but you could still have a fan-related cooling problem. If the fans don't work, you have a problem. If the fans worked, the car runs fine at highway speed but not in town, then suspect the coolant sensor that engages the fans. If the fans work and the car overheats in all conditions, then a system blockage is possible. Blockages occur usually one of two ways: Radiator rust/corrosion, and collapsed radiator hoses. Radiator corrosion will require radiator replacement; if it is blocked badly enough to overheat, flushing it is a waste of effort, and could cause more problems with all the **** you circulate into the engine. If the system is low on water (air in system) it can rise to the top radiator hose and cause it to collapse partially or fully, restricting flow. Some engines have water jackets that extend higher than the radiator cap, so they can trap air. These cars have bleeder ports at these locations to remove to trapped air. Check to see if that is the problem.

Have the FAN CLUTCH checked. they are a common failure. Get a AC DELCO or the part from the dealer. Why was the radiator replaced? Heater work OK? A/C works OK?

2004 Jaguar XJ8 with 60,000 miles. A/C was working intermittently, so took to dealer to fix. They found a "leaky" o-ring, replaced it, and recharged the system. No other problems found. Problem still...


sounds like you have a blockage in the system the fans come in to cool the condensor, have you had the system flushed and the receiver/drier replaced? or there maybe moisture in the system which will create ice in the system and cause a restriction or the ext. temp sensor is faulty

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.7 is overheating. Mainly at stand still and slow traffic. Once it hits High it pushes back down to normal level within one or two minutes and repeats. coolant levels are good...


sounds like you have a partially obstructed radiator (either bugs or other debris packed into the ac condenser, leaves between the condenser and radiator or an internal blockage inside the radiator core.) if it is not external it can possibly be cleared by flushing, though most flushes available today are fairly weak and tend to go around obstructions instead of going through them. if flushing does not help, replace the radiator.

Radiator does not requires a frequent replacement untill  the radiator get damage or choke-up if you having water circulation problem or radiator heating problem then see for radiator cleanup or flusing , the radiator or the car can get heat up even if the electriacal problem happen like radiator fan motor issue, the thermostat issue, temperature issue, fan relay issue. much more thing comes to consideration so for trouble free issue & a hazard free driving do make sure that you visit your nearest authorised service centre or service station untill then see you sir... have happing motoring & drive safely...!

High mileage 1996 Ford Explorer v8 overheats at 75-80 mph


if your mechanic seen no leaks from hoses or thermostat housing its sounds that either your fan clutch or your thermostat is bad. if its heats will driving streets and not highway its your fan clutch and needs to be replaced. if it overheats in streets and highway its your thermostat and needs to be replaced,you will need a thermostat and gasket with some silicone. Drain, follow the radiator hose to the housing and take 3 bolt off, clean housing well,CAREFULLY install the t-stat exactly the way is was taken out (pic), gasket,sillicone, bolt. ecc3d0c.jpg   its an easy job. Good luck!

My car is falling apart


Overheating in traffic and then running fine on the highway is a reasonable sign that the radiator fan is not working, it gets hot in traffic and the fan doesn't come on, then on the highway the forced air through the front grille will be sufficient to cool the radiator down.
The fan not running can be one of four things.
1. the fan it self dead.
2. The radiator thermal switch.
3. The relay for the radiator thermal switch.
4. The fuse blown.
The fact that it stalled when it was getting hot could be one of a number of things including the gasoline evaporating simply because it was getting hot.
The fact that you cannot start the car up now leads me to suggest you have an electrical problem that is common to both situations.
If I had to hazzard a guess I would suggest that whatever is stopping the radiator fan running has probably just knocked out your fuel pump.
You need some specialist diagnosis on this car, time to call the garage I am affraid.
