Engine could be seized...:( sorry...or a hose could have blown (radiator) and hurt or disconnected a main electrical line ...check fuses battery and cables..there is a bulkhead power junction on firewall high rt. side(passenger) immediately next to engine..battery located under back seat passenger side...first thing though..make sure you can turn the motor over by hand (breaker bar on nut at crank pulley) to determine if it is not siezed...good luck

Overheated and now it wont start


overhet then smoke as I'm sure you know is not good. then shut off and will not start, sounds like a blown head gasket, this would allow coolant to escape to the point of overheating, and the smoking as well, coolant in the cylinders via a blown gasket would prevent starting. DW Mylin

2005 vw beetle overheating


My car overheated and began steaming so I pulled over.
The water was gone in a matter of seconds and I had refilled it the day before and so on. The blue ticking overheating sound starts on every time
The fan wont turn on and it was jump started in order to get it home quick.
The Ac wont turn on either that was the first problem that happened , the compressor is good because it was removed and manually checked

The transmission had been kind of like jumping on me for a while but I got used to it.

So far what has been replaced has been:
Fan Module Control
Air Condition pressure switch
Cooling fan control
thermal switch

Have a 2008 Land Rover LR2. The temp gauge shoots irratically high and the overheat light comes on. And then it will go back to normal temp after I turn the heat all the way up. While this should help...

1997 cherokee sport will not start after overheating


If a car dies from overheating its not good. Quick check; pull the oil stick and see if the oil seems milky. Mess with it enough it will start. More than likely it has a blowed head gasket. You will see water out the exhaust while running. Good luck

Thermostate ranges from overheating to just fine while driving.


is the fan working? if the fan isnt working it will overheat when idling, as it wont be sucking cold air through the radiator. a quick way to diagnose that your cooling system is fine is when stuck in traffic, turn your heaters onto hot, if the engine temp gauge shows that the engine is cooling down, the cooling system will be fine 9/10 times.

hope this helps.

Espace overheating


Hi,
Since you said runs hot too quickly, I suspect the thermostat is the culprit. It's inexpensive and easy enough to replace. Overheating is terrible for an engine.
I hope this helps... Good luck!
