Check to see if coolant is actually moving through your engine. If it is not it is most likely your thermostat or the water pump.

Peurgot 206LX--1.4 petrol. X REG...31.10.2000 .engine overheating? Worse when standing ( coolant Ok )


Some things to check - make sure that the radiator fan is coming on at the right temperature. It might not be turning on at all due to a blown fuse or a bad fan relay. Also, when the engine is up to temperature make sure the thermostat is opening up properly and be sure the radiator itself is not clogged. When the engine begins to overheat, turn the heater on (full heat, highest blower speed) and see if you get hot air and the engine temp begins to come down. This will tell you of the coolant is circulating properly.

My 2001 ford focus is overheating it doesnt seem to be losing water and if i turn the heater on the temperature goes back down


you might want to see if the cooling fan is working at the radiator.if its not then the fan motor may be no good.by putting the blower motor on you are giving the system air flow to pull heat out of the cooling system by it blowing air over the heater core.you can remove the plug on the fan motor and connect jumper wires directly from power and ground to the connectors on the fan motor,if the fan doesn`t work then the cooling fan motor will have to be replaced.you also could have a thermostat that is not opening all the way causing a rise in engine temperature.

Drive for about 15 mins and car get to a warm temp and then suddenly turns off with no hesitation missing or warning then will not start again for 30 mins when it has cooled down, temp doesnt get hot.


To start with check the coolant level in radiator...Your vehicle is equipped with a head temp sensor that is designed to shut motor down before it reaches temp. that will result in engine damage..If level is ok then i would look at the water pump at being your next culprit.In either case i would definetly check your temp. sending unit to make sure its operational due to the fact you state that vehicle doesnt get hot...Another thing you can check is to make sure that your cooling fan turns when car gets hot...If fan doesnt come (after you have made sure coolant temp sensor is operational) check fan relay located in power distribution box in engine compartment...

Car overheats. didn'T THINK FAN WAS WORKING BUT WHEN YOU TURN ON THE AIR CONDITIONING THE FAN WORKS.


You will need to see if the fan operates when overheating, there are diffrent sensors for the cooling and ac cooling, the good thing is that the fan works, this would tell me it may be a bad coolant temp sensor or thermostat, you will need to let it run and as the gauge passes the middle point feel to see if both upper and lower rad hoses are hot, if only one is hot then you may have a bad thermostat, is they are both hot and fan doesnt turn on and car overheats then you should replace the coolant temp sensor, stat with these tests and see the result, hope this helps.

Would the heater control valve malfunctioning make the engine overheat blowing hot air out the heater one moment,then not blowing the hot air, temp gage spikes 225 plus. The motor takes awhile to heat up...


Heater control valve malfunction will not cause engine to overheat unless coolant is leaking externally...Overheating going down the road can be the result of a few different things...Partly clogged radiator...Insufficient air flow due to possible fan problem...External coolant leak...Make sure fans are operting properly and have cooling system pressure tested for leaks...Gaining and losing heat on the inside of the vehicle usually means system is low on coolant but you must find out where coolant is going

Make sure the cooling fans are working when the engine reaches above normal temp,if they are not ,turn the ac on,and see if the cooling fans come on,if so,replace the coolant temp sensor,if it has a clutch fan,then replace it,for it is not staying engaged ,and is not turning fast enough to cool the radiator.

Car overheating,thermosat was repaced 2 weeks ago


Make sure the cooling fans are coming on.And most important bleed the air out of the cooling system.When it is cooling correctly,the cooling fans will come on,and then they will go off,when the engine has cooled down.

Radiator fan running continuously


There are 2 fans on this car - one which is mechanically driven by a belt and will draw more or less air depending on engine temp (viscous coupling), and one that is electrically driven and will turn on or off generally only when the A/C is turned on or off. However, the engine ECM has the ability to override this normal operation when something abnormal is happening - in this case the ECM thinks the engine is overheating. If the coolant temp sensor tells the ECM that the engine is too hot and the A/C is on, the ECM will turn the A/C compressor off, but leave the fan going in an effort to keep the engine cool and not overloaded. If the A/C is off, the ECM will just turn on the fan. The fan will stay on (and the A/C inopperatve) until the engine has returned to an acceptable temperature. Of course, if that were the only problem, the air coming out of the heater should be stinking hot - provided there is enough coolant to actually get to the heater. I'd be checking your cooling system very closely - both the level, and whether or not it is holding pressure. Check also for any external blockage of the radiator. If it has been overheating like this for a while, I would recommend changing the thermostat (temp regulator) after any other repairs are made. Suzuki thermostats generally fail OPEN and then your engine would run cool. If all the above is wrong, then you have have an electrical problem which will probably require an auto electrician.

Temp gauge often reads too hot, engine normal.


It sounds like your cooling fans are not comming on by themselves, but when you turn on the ac it forces them to turn on. Make sure relay is good, then replace coolant temp sensor, this may have failed no telling pcm to turn on cooling fans. Thanks

2002 kia sportage temp gauge runs hot while driving


Cheak to see that the coolant fan is operating with the A/C turned on. The fan has to work to help the engine stay cool and help the A/C. When you apply heat on the control it acts to reduce the coolant temp. You will have to get the coolant fan operation checked. This can be :fan motor, fan relay, temp sensor and computer. Good luck
