Check the fan clutch and see if its engaging ! Start the motor and let run a few minutes and turn vehicle off while observing the fan blades if it free wheels when the motor is turned off then its bad ! Also take the radiator cap off with it cold and full of fluid and start the car - does coolant imediately shoot out if so the head gaskets are blown !

2000 FORD EXPEDITION OVERHEATING....changed thermostat,radiator cap, confirmed fan clutch is working, no radiator leak noted, changing coolant temperature sensor as a type...water pump not leaking or...

yes. the impellor on these engines have a tendency to come off the water pump.First you can see if the pump is working by removing a heater hose then have someone to start the engine. if the water sprays a good, solid stream out then the water pump is good. if the water just barely comes out or not at all then the pump is weak or "bad".

My 2004 sentra is overheating the thermostat has been replaced the spark plugs have been replaced and i have flushed the radiator with no avail. my water pump is not leaking and seems to be running fine....

You need to check the fan on the radiator. Also check the nozzles for the input and output from the radiator. If the nozzle at the radiator inlet is not hot, then the problem is in the cooling system. If the nozzle from the radiator is hot, then the problem is in the radiator. Be careful not to burn yourself.

We just replaced the radiator and the thermastat but the needle still goes to hot

replace the temperature sending unit. Its right there by the thermostat. You can get this at any auto parts store. just need an open end wrench to change it. they do go bad(found out the hard way several years back). I hope this helps you

Thats my guess, one hose leak, two head gasket, three, crack in head somewhere. Of course make sure the thermastat is working. If it is seized thats a problem to. If you get the head off make sure it is resurfaced before you install the head gasket. Good luck

Check or replace the tps, but first, maybe give the radiator a flush and check fluid level

My Jeep overheats while sitting idle. When I drive, the gauge goes down quickly. I have had thermostat and fan changed. I have also had the radiator flushed. What can it be?

we have a 2003 and it did the very same thing . Its called cooling fan relay it costs about 60.00 and is located behind the headlight assembly . not very hard to fix if you know anything about cars .
