Change the radiator cap as it may not be holding the pressure it was designed for.

I have a 1998 oldsmobile aurora that is overheating. no leaks, runs fine then temp goes up and coolant boils up to the resevoir cap and comes out around the cap. replaced thermostat. fan comes on


Try changing radiator cap if there is no water in the oil it is not a head gasket could be system just needs a flush. It could also be the water pump is not pumping well try the cap first.

Air is getting in the system. See if you can find out where the seam is coming from. Replace whichever parts need to be replaced.

My s 430 has smoke coming from under hood after driving but not all the time temp gauage reads normal. I had oil and trans leaks sealed but it is still happening, what else could it be? Thanks


SMOKE UNDER HOOD COULD BE COOLANT LEAK FROM RADIATOR ITSELF OR CHECK FOR LEAKING TOP RADIATOR HOSE AND CHECK FOR LEAKING BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSE.LOOK UNDER THE HOOD IF COOLANT BOILING OUT COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG ENGINE OVERHEATING FROM BAD THERMOSTAT OR BAD WATER PUMP.CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAK AT WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE.IF SO WATER PUMP NEED REPLACING.ADD MORE COOLANT UNTIL LEVEL CORRECT.TRY LOCATE LEAK. IF CAR OVERHEATED AND BOILED IT OUT. SMOKE UNDER THE HOOD CAN ALSO BE CAUSED BY LEAKING VALVE COVERS WHICH CAN BE FIRE HAZARD IF OIL LEAKS ON HOT EXHAUST MANIFOLD.

Car overheated. Still runs


did it steam from under the hood or was water running from it when you cut it off? If water ran from it when you cut it off in the middle like the front that is your water pump. if steam was coming from the hood you could have a busted hose. if radiator is boiling hot could be your thermostat. if water is not holding in your radiator then you may have a busted radiator or blown a gasket. if your motor is still good do not drive if it runs hot you can blow a head gasket or the motor and to get it fixed a lot more money and you don't want that. as you put water in your vehicle make sure it is running while you are doing this. hope this helps

Steam came in from vents and high pitch whistle


start the enginemake sure the radiator is full with the cap oon tightly and open the hood and let the car idle in the driveway untl it starts to team, this way you can locate where the steam is actually coming from.
when it is overheating is there white smoke coming out of the tail pipe?
if there is this is a good sign thatyou have a blown ead gasket.
the other thing that couldbe causing this over heating is a plugged catalytic converte.
to rule out whether it is the themostat sticking or not. remove the thermostat from the car put it in a pot of boiling water on the kitchen stove and see if it opens or not. the boiling water will make the thermostat open if it is working properley. Be sure to pay attention as to which way the thermostat is pointing when you remove it so when you put it or a new one back in that it is facing the correct direction. if it is not facing the rite direction it will not open and cause the car to over heat.
