You may have a head gasket problem, anytime coolant comes out of the cap, theres too much pressure in the cooling system. you dont say how long it takes to do that, but a head gasket would do it right away. 1 minute or so. if the truck is hot, make sure the air going through the radiator is HOT.

Have a 2003 Mercury grand marquis is overheating only while driving when trying to shift into overdrive at 45mi/hr then loses power changed water pump belt tensioner what am I missing


Did you change the thermostat, if it is shut or closed the water will not circulate through the engine and cause a over heating problem. To see if the antifreeze is circulating through the engine, start the car and gently remove the radiator cap taking care not to have hot antifreeze burn you, then look and see if the antifreeze is moving through the radiator if it is the thermostat is not stuck shut. and you may have a different problem. Hope this helps.

Running hot


You could be low on antifreeze, bad water pump, bad thermostat or a collapsed hose. Assuming you do have plenty of antifreeze and hoses are in good shape, do you have good heat inside the car? When car is still warming up open the radiator cap and visually see if antifreeze is circulating. If it's not you can remove the thermostat and then check if you have circulation. If yes then replace the thermostat, if no then replace water pump. That's how I troubleshoot old school cooling systems.

My heater blows cold air when car is stopped. i have installed a new water pump and the radiator is full of water.


you still have air trapped in the cooling system. Get front of car as high up as you can on a hill. Cold engine - loosen radiator cap, fill with 50/50 antifreeze mix. Start engine and run until upper radiator hose is hot (thermostat open). Engine should burp air and maybe spill some coolant, that's ok. Once burped, tighten cap, shut off engine and let it cool down while keeping the reservoir full. It will **** coolant out of reservoir as it cools. Keep it full.

If still cold air, take to a shop that has evac/fill equipment; they will **** air out and repalce with coolant. About $80.

Why does my cadillac 1998 deville keep overheating?


Overheating can be numerous things: Fans not working, water pump, thermostat, overflow cap, and the list keeps going. When the engine is running and heats ups, feel the heat of the top hose, if the hose isn't hot, the thermostat is most likely stuck open and needs replaced. If it is hot we know you have circulation. The cap on the expansion tank may be defective, if it can't hold the pressure of the water, it will release at the overflow cap if the cap is bad. Also check the coolant level.

Radiator fluid spewed everywhere.


a stuck closed thermostat may have caused the engine to super heat on shut down, the radiator fluid came from the surge tank as it boiled over..

When I excelerate or stop for a long period of time my car starts over heating, what do you think the problem is?


It could be a faulty: 1-Radiator fan, Check the fuse. 2-Bad Thermostat, Change the Thermostat 3-Weak Water pump, Change the Water Pump.
Easiest thing to do is see if the fuse to the Electric radiator fan is bad. If it's good, then start up the car and see if it goes on when the temperature starts to get hot. I think the fan activates around 190". If the fan does not turn on, check for lose wires and bad grounds to the electric motor. Take caution, fan may activate without warning.
If the electric fan works good, then change the Thermostat. It may have failed and stuck in the shut position. After changing the Thermostat and problem still there, good chances are that it's the Water pump that may be faulty.
Before you go all though that trouble, check the Antifreeze level, make sure you have lots in there and just don't look at the radiator antifreeze reservoir. Look in the filler cap and the radiator cap. The plastic can become stained making it look like it is full but it's really empty.
Good luck and hope this help. Oh don't buy any radiator flush, it may clean up any dirt that my be plugging up any holes in the system, you do have a 6 year old car.

Monte carlo 01 runs hot, says low coolant but its full


Thermostat is probably stuck closed... Run the car with the cap of the bottle or radiator and see if it starts to circulate when it gets hot... Be careful though because it can over heat and have no coolant flowing.. And also watch for spewing fluid if it get hot at the place you took the cap off.... The low coolant could also mean the radiator is not full but the bottle is... Check for a restriction from the bottle to the radiator.. If you see a sensor on the bottle it could be bad... But That won't cause it to over heat. It'll just say low coolant because the switch is stuck.
Also does the fan come on while it's getting hot?
If not that could be the reason for the overheating.. And the coolant level sensor could be bad telling you it's low
Cap off look for circulation of antifreeze.
At the same time before it over heats make sure fan is coming on. No fan on? Fan fuse or relay could be bad... Also maybe a wire.
No circulation? Thermostate stuck or restriction in coolant hose...Line... Radiator..... And worse case scenario the water pump might be bad.
The low level I wouldn't worry about. Find out why it's over heating first.
