I would suggest trying the thermostat. Feel the upper and lower radiator hoses and see if one of them feels cooler than the other. If so then try replacing the thermostat.

1997 cutless supreme keeps overheating, I've changed waterpump,thermostat,changed sensor and flushed out the radiator,I'm asking who knows


I've had same problem before. Replace the radiator cap. That's all it took. IF still overheats/looses coolant, go to a higher pressure cap. Original isn't strong enough to hold the pressure.

Overheating


if it cools down at idle this suggests the cooling fan is working...check temperature of upper and lower radiator hoses if one is hot while the other is cold suspect thermostat...if they are equal...remove radiator cap while engine is COLD and start vehicle check to see if as the car warms up the coolant in the radiator is swirling or circulating...if not suspect waterpump

Did they replace the thermostat? If so check to make sure that nothing is plugging the radiator or heater core?

When your daughter rear ended the other car, she could have caused one hose somewhere to get a kink in it. Please follow especially the pipes underneath to check for a kink. It may be a very small hose but it can cause this problem. It did it to my 1990 VW Golf GTI.

It could also be that there was a metal pipe that bent also and water is not circulating properly.

My 1996 ford thunderbird is overheating and when it does so , it leaks water and anitfreeze from under the car and from top


It could be a number of problems. If coolant is not leaking from the radiator or bad hose the water pump is the most likely culprit. There is a weephole that the water can leak out of and the only way to repair it is to replace the water pump. Good luck

1997 jag xk8 overheated, replaced thermastat and Waterpump still overheating?


Last year my car suddenly overheated while idling to the point the coolant tank exploded. I took it to a foreign car repair shop where they replaced the coolant tank and put in another thermostat. It didn't make it home before it overheated again. I took it to the Jag dealership where they felt that my hoses had expanded to much during the overheat so they replaced all of my hoses to a tune of $1000. Three months later it overheated again. I took it to another foreign car repair shop where they discovered the real culprit. An impeller had broken off of my waterpump, I had a blockage in my radiator, and I had a short in one of the coolant fans that made it only work part of the time. So about $2400 later my car has been coolant issue free for about 2 years now. Good luck and I hope this helps.

the conclusive evidence for fan clutch is this:
if the engine temperature begins to drop while the car is moving, you've got a bad fan clutch. Is the radiator clogged with deposits?
