    my car is overheating, i tnhk it might be the thermostat, so i got a new one but haven't put it in yet cause i dont know where or how it is put on. basically it was asking for more water in the coolant tankso i topped it off, and now, when i take off the cap, it pours the water out with a great amount of presureafter driving. the coolant tank is full, yet the car is overheating.

    i have a Jeep Cherokee that is making violent screeching noises and at times a grinding/gurgling noise. i don't know if is the thermostat but it's extremely loud. It smells like the overheating of coolant/antifreeze, but the car is not loosing noticeable amounts of liquid.

    my 2000 pontiac sunfire is overheating within five minutes after starting it,and i dont even have to drive it,it just over heats after sitting for just a few minutes,but it loses liquid big time as soon as i shut it off,and since this started today,my heater on my car is blowing cold air,instead of warm.

I had a 2000 Sunfire now these cars have alumnuim heads and cast iron blocks if the motor gets to hot than the head warps and if will constantly overheat and very quickly. It can be fixed and it will need a new head.

As far as the fan what you are looking for is a relay if i remember it is on behind the grill.

As far as the Jeep you probably blew the head gasket and the grinding is the piston on the block and the gurgling is the antifreeze. The oil and the antifreeze should be mixing.

You starting in the right spot but be careful you could end up in the same spot as explained earlier.

    Sorry as i read this it is not so detailed as far as parts so here it goes

    1: Head(junkyard or new, could be a throw up with a junk yard one) and gasket kit with all the torx specs or a new motor

    2. Maybe a new relay/ fuse

    3.You can do a partial rebuild(not recommend but works), full rebuild, junkyard motor, new motor

    4.You got the thermo stat replace it, then if it is still overheating look more towards 1
