You need to find a garage that has a coolant gas tester. this measures presence of combustion gases which have bled into the cooling system, meaning a bad gasket or crack. when the combustion bleeds into the cooling system, it creates pressure which blows the coolant out the overflow.

after you look in that area, check for sweet smell, green or orange tinged white smoke at the exhaust could tell you that the coolant is going into the combustion chamber. when it leaks one way, it often leaks the other way as well when the piston is on the intake stroke.

My 2004 Impala keeps overheating. it says coolent temp hot. i dont smell anything thing nor do i see any type of smoke or steam. i had thermastat replace and ignition wire replace but no luck. the car...


There are other things to be checked, such as the radiator fan and the water pump. You would need to find out if the fan is coming on at 220 degrees and if the pump is pulling coolant thru the radiator.

what about these possibles
faulty coolant temp sender
head gasket failed
clogged radiator
cooling fans not spinning fast enough
or not coming on soon enough

Thermastat location and replacement


It could be located near the water jacket at the intake manifold or possibly close to the water pump. Also it may be a separate housing where the return hose from the radiator meets the engine block.

I have a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT that keeps Overheating. I've changed the Water pump, Radiator, Rehotwired the fans to alway come on right when I start the car and only go off when I kill it. It


With a over heating problem the first place you always check is the thermastat.Thermastats ALWAYS go.
In fact every two years I change the thermastat wether or not it needs it just to be safe than sorry,I live in a snow belt and nothing worst than having no heat in the winter.
Something else you might keep in mind, over heating can do allot of damage most people don't consider, the transmission lines are connected to the radiator which cool the transmission

2002 Hyundai Elantra - My car overheated over the weekend and is not holding water or antifreeze.


It is highly possible the radiator has developed a leak in the upper and/or solder joints of the radiator. If it got hot enough it could melt the brazing and/or solder joints. You probably will not be able to see this with just your eyes but it would show up when pressure is built up inside the radiator when driving. Any competent auto shop can run a radiator pressure test to find the problem. Hope this helps.
