Your thermostat is stuck. Replace it and you should be fine. If that does not work, then you may have a clogged radiator, and if that is the case then I would recommend that you run some Prestone radiator flush in it. Just follow the directions on the back of the bottle, and remember to use a 50/50 blend of antifreeze.

00' intrigue is over heating with ac on and parked. Any idieas why?


My only guess is either the temperature pressure switch is malfunctioning, or you have a leaking intake manifold. I would do a coolant pressure test on the radiator, put a/c on full blast while driving, or turn a/c completely off while driving. BUT, drive a good distance, when doing both. Release pressure before driving. As soon as you get back, do another immediate pressure test, then check your heater hoses under dash behind motor for leaks. This will put severe strain on the heating and cooling system as well as the a/c accumulator and condensor lines. Hope this helps

90 Cherokee inline 6 pushing fluid out of overflow bottle at cap no cracks and not overheating does it a couple of min. after you start driving


I think the seal under the cap is bad. Try replacing it with a new cap. Overtime these will not hold pressure, causing fluid to flow out. Sometimes it will run hot, other times it will be fine.

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero. For the second time in a year my car has been overheating. The first time the problem actually went away after a few days before I even had the pressure tested. This was...


First the reason the heater is not working is because there is air in the system and these engine are known to trap air.There is a bleeder at the top of thermostat housing to remove the air.Take the radiator cap off while the engine is off and cold and add coolant/water mixture till fluid streams from bleeder screw(will need to be removed) then tighten screw and install radiator cap.Let it idle and see if it over heats and pay attention to the cooling fan operation and heater operation.If it does not overheat after 20 minutes the take it for a drive and see if it overheats.I fit does not overheat idling but does overheat driving you have a bad radiator.Dexcool is great for pugging radiators and heater cores.It is possible to flush the radiators and fix sometimes but new ones are not that expensive.I would probaly replace.If it overheats idling and fans are working suspect a bad thermostat.Good Luck!

1994 Jeep Cherokee is bogging down and getting hot!


ok if the timing chain was bad it would not run. bogging down is from increased resistance from something. since you have overheating i would guess the water pump broke when you heard the sound. ther is a belt around it and that would cause this. since it idles fine i would wait till it is cold and open the radiator then run the engine and see if you see water moving in the radiator. if nothing after 10 min then i would suspect the water pump. watch that you don't overheat the engine doing this. that would cause other problems that could be more expensive to fix good luck

Thermostate ranges from overheating to just fine while driving.


is the fan working? if the fan isnt working it will overheat when idling, as it wont be sucking cold air through the radiator. a quick way to diagnose that your cooling system is fine is when stuck in traffic, turn your heaters onto hot, if the engine temp gauge shows that the engine is cooling down, the cooling system will be fine 9/10 times.

hope this helps.

Car wont start


when you press the brake pedal the brake master cylinder vacuum booster takes vacuum away from the engine and that slows the idle speed just enough to trigger the low pressure oil light. Pull the oil pressure sending unit out and hook up an oil pressure test gage, if the pressure is above 15 PSI hot engine idle in drive replace the oil pressure sending unit.
