Sounds like the electric fan is not turning on check connections,fuse and relay.Also check for power at fan motor with Air Conditioner on be careful because turning the switch on to the A/C will make the fan come on,which is how you can test to see if fan works or not.

Well it can be several things start with the basics, check that your antifreeze is full along with your engine oil. Next check that your fan is turning on the radiator. And that there are no obstructions on the face of the radiator like paper or plastic or leaves anything that hinder the flow of air across the radiator. There are several other things that can cause this problem but start with the basics first. After that it might start to cost you money, if the thermostat is stuck closed that can cause you to over heat. If the car ever back fired on you and your timing is off that can cause you to overheat also. And lastly and I hope this isn't wrong but you will have to have a mechanic check it, a blown head gasket can also cause you to overheat and this is a very expensive repair.

I hope this helps you out.

2004 impala overheating. Changed thermostat already.

Anna, thermostats don't fail all that often. If you are overheating after a new one, the problem most likely resides inside the radiator. Radiators can get plugged with gunk over time if they are not flushed at least occasionally. Have you tried that yet?

Does the overheating happen while the car is moving or only when at idle for a period of time?

Is the coolant less than two years old? If it is more, I recommend replacing it after doing a cooling system flush.

If you still experience overheating after that, I recommend having a good radiator shop give it a look.

Good luck.

My 1994 Buick PA overheats and it seems that the anti-freeze in the reservoir tank never moves--it is still the same brand new fluid thats been in there for a year.

replace the hose and fill the radiator.
There is a bleeder screw where the hose connects to the engine.
there is probably a fluid loss somewhere causing the overheating.
check for wet spots near hoses and if they are really old replace them.
on the right side there are two heater hoses that can cause overheating by leaking. they can be metal and you have to pick them up to see if fluid got under them.
worst case would be a head gasket or damaged head.

My 2005 pontiac grand prix was overheating and was leaking water out of the jug so I put a thermastat in it . And it still was overheating so I flushed the radiator and it was still overheating,then I...

Most likely it is a combination problem involving the water pump. The temp sensor being slow to respond being the problem would be easily identified. If the vehicle is over heating when you are moving and 30 to 40 mph it is not a sensor or Fan. It could possibly still be the fan if the fan clutches are not working and allowing it to free spin as air moves faster through the Radiator but this is less likely than a bad water pump.

Its always overheating

Pressure stest the cooling system . The water pump is probably the source and if it is leaking it can't move the coolant around and you are overheating. Change the thermostat while doing this too.

Having the radiator rodded is a good move. Retest. If it has an electric radiator fan check temp sensors. If the fan has a clutch it may need to be replaced if its slipping with the engine hot. Check bellts. Its likely a fan air flow issue if the engine overheats when the care is not moving or is moving slowly. If the engine overheats only with AC on that narrows it down. Write back if that's the case. Lots of things can cause this. Antifreeze and a good radiator cap discourages boiling. Pressure in the radiator raises the boiling point but it can't build up pressure if the cap is bad. Antifreeze also raises the boiling point. If actual boiling happens in the engine then steam builds up in critical places and drives the collant out of the block making the engine even hotter than it already is. Replace the cap. Check the antifreeze.
