That sounds like the engine thermostat is stuck closed.

My 99 grand am is overheating. I changed the thermostat and it still over heats. what else can cause it to overheat?


How hot does it get in degrees F? Does the radiator fan work? Some fans won't turn on till about 220 degrees F.
Could have blockage in radiator or engine block? Check the water pump. Your serpentine belt ok? Could be gasket issues? Any coolant in the oil or oil in the coolant. Check your coolant temp sensor. Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction. Are you losing coolant?

Overheating! The van has new radiator, fluid, cap, heavy duty water pump, tsat, fan clutch. BTW the heads were redone not to long ago.


Did you change the thermostat? If not opening properly or far enough, that could be the cause of your overheating.

Use heater full blast with windows open to add additional cooling till you locate the source of the problem.

2002 Chrysler Concorde 2.7 L overheating, changed, thermostat, water pump, air intake gasket and still overheating


When you changed these components and refilled the cooling system, did you purge the air out of the top of the system by opening the bleeder valve. These engines have coolant in areas higher up in the engine where air can be trapped during refill. Air trapped in the system will cause overheating issues. Otherwise, the only thing you haven't mentioned in the system is the radiator and fan assemblies. They could be suspect, as could a possible blown head gasket.

I have a 1994 ford Taurus that has new plugs new thermastat new water pump new coil wires but car is still overheating


does putting heater on hot prduce hot air.on full with fan on does it reduce temo?is ur radiator fan coming on? hard to give one answer.as dont know if its overheating in traffic or on the move?there could be air stuck in pipes slowing water flow.or a pipe/radiator blockage so coolant doesnt get to flow around engine so it gets hot.u could check radiator by touching see if hot or cold where pipes enter(prob switch off engine first) try bleeding system squeesing pipes to push air out

Radiator overheating


If the overheating is only occasional, it sounds like the radiator still has some blockage that moves around and plugs up again. Try flushing it backwards again. If it continues, consider a new radiator. A radiator is cheaper than head gasket work, which may happen if it keeps overheating.

Replaced thermastat but still overheating


OK, you have addressed the first possibility. There are a few more, each progressively more expensive to fix. First, are the radiator electric cooling fans operating? If you find the vehicle runs ok on the highway, but overheats around town in stop-and-go traffic, it could be that the fans are not running. Quick check for the fans - with the ignition on (the engine doesn't need to be running), move the cooling control to the A/C position. If the fans come on, they are good, but you could still have a fan-related cooling problem. If the fans don't work, you have a problem. If the fans worked, the car runs fine at highway speed but not in town, then suspect the coolant sensor that engages the fans. If the fans work and the car overheats in all conditions, then a system blockage is possible. Blockages occur usually one of two ways: Radiator rust/corrosion, and collapsed radiator hoses. Radiator corrosion will require radiator replacement; if it is blocked badly enough to overheat, flushing it is a waste of effort, and could cause more problems with all the **** you circulate into the engine. If the system is low on water (air in system) it can rise to the top radiator hose and cause it to collapse partially or fully, restricting flow. Some engines have water jackets that extend higher than the radiator cap, so they can trap air. These cars have bleeder ports at these locations to remove to trapped air. Check to see if that is the problem.

I3My high roof minibus of the 2002 just developed overheating now I have no clue the cause I need help. This is very reliable bus which just arrived from a very long distance two days ago


see the radiator fan does it work when the engine is hot
there are two things
if the fan is not working check it by attaching it direct current from the battery
if it works late see the thermostat
check the radiator for any blockage

Car began overheating, so we added antifreeze and water. Then the next day, it all leaked out. Upper hoses appear to be ok. Are there lower hoses?


It should have a lower hose also. Or you could check around the water pump, they have a weep hole on it and they usually leak if the pump is bad.
