Is water suppose to be coming out of spout on radiator....I put water where coolant goes n it just shoots out?? And car overheats


car over heating because thermostat faulty its stuck closed not opening allowing coolant flow from engine to radiator.hot climate need 50/50 antifreeze and water.straight water will boil away at 212 degrees. engine can get hot as 225 degrees you need add coolant to raise engine coolant boiling point temperature.

My 1990 BMW 525i is over heating


Try replacing the thermostat. It is supposed to open when the water temp reaches a certain point usually around 180 degrees. It might be stuck in the closed position.

My 99 Audi A4 resevoir is bubbling, had the water pump and timing replaced a month ago anything????


1. Possible air lock in the cooling system, does the internal fan blow hot air? You can blead the system through small bleeding points on the water hoses.

2. Head gasket gone, do the water pipes to the rad expand under pressure?

3. Faulty thermostat. Thermostat controls the amount of water directed to the rad.

4. Not enough anti freeze.

5. Rad cooling fan not starting when supposed to causing overheating. Does the tempture gauge in the dash read normal.
Let me know how it goes.

My 2000 dodge caravan is overheating and my overflow tank is literally overflowing. I have no leaks in radiator or hoses. Could it be my waterpump or thermostat or just a clogged hose.


Yes, it could be a few issues, I always believe to go the cheapest route first, so you are not just replacing parts to be replacing, Based on your description, Normally it would not be overflowing if your pump is not working, It could be a clogged hose, you would have to flush system to see if that was the case, but based on my feeling, i believe it is a stuck thermostat, If your tank is overflowing, it would have to be a main hose block, but i don't believe that is the case, i would have thermostat replaced, to confirm that, for a around 50 bucks (if you stay away from dealer) you can have the radiator flushed, which is a good idea anyway, then you will know for sure it is the thermostat, and they can put that in after they flush it, or you can put thermostat in, pick there brain, when they flush it, and they can point where it is, it is just a couple of bolts to take off, clean gasket area, replace with new gasket, after of course taking old thermostat out and replacing with new one.

I hope this helps you, (again, i think it is thermostat that is stuck) thanks Mike from fixya

Over boiling problem while temperature guage remains normal.


Replace the thermostat. The Thermostat is not functioning correctly. It is closed = not allowing the radiator fluid to flow when the engine is cold. When the Thermostat reaches a certain temperature, it is suppose to open = allowing the radiator fluid to flow.
Your Thermostat is not opening, causing the engine fluid to reach boiling point. When this happens, the sheer pressure will 'blow' boiling radiator fluid out the radiator cap. The Radiator Cap is designed to do this if operating properly.
Change that Thermostat and the over boiling should disappear. And yes it is something you can do yourself without much problem.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
Please include your engine size on any additional information or questions..Thanks,

2004 GMC Envoy check engine light remains illuminated. Diagnostics revealed codes: P1133 and P0128. P1133 points to a heated oxygen sensor and P0128 indicates a possible defective thermostat. The O2 sensor...


Leave 02 sensor alone ,it is doing it's job . It is heated up because of lean fuel mixture due to incorrect engine temp.,replace thermostat before looking further.
