My engine overheat when A/C is running on a slow moving traffic or on parking.


I would check and see how much air is actually moving thru the radiator. The fan may not be running fast enough or you may have debris blocking the air flow. Also make sure the system is full of coolant and no air pockets.

Both fans not working causing the car to overheat


If you are moving down the road , car should not overheat. The fans only come on to provide air flow when not moving and engine hits a certain temp. If your vehicle overheats while driving , it could be a stuck thermostat or your radiator is pluged up. Water pump could be the issue too , but usually if they fail there would be a coolant leak clearly visible.

2004 jeep liberty not reading sensors


did you first check all fuses???? that be 1st !!!
dead cold engine, I OFF the rad cap, is the system full? of AF?
is the AF/ tested at 50% with the $2 tool? "prestone tool"
Does the AF coolant look like Mississippi mud?
AF= Antifreeze SOLUTION (coolant)

is this the 3.7L V6? , ????? that be first. what engine option. of 4.
even a 2.8L diesel.

no, the PCM is not the problem(CPU the brain) not at all.
unless the fans die... on 2.4L engine. got 2.4?
first tell us when it overheats. ?

parked. stopped only?
moving fast? ever? overheat.?
both ways?
Does the fan kick on , as the FSM tells you,.???

2 engines, have a viscous fan clutch others have electric fan
until you post engine. we can not help.

is the radiator fins clean? free of junk? front to rear.
if yes, it should not overheat moving fast.
if it only overheats parked, the fan is bad.
or clogged rad tubes... (easy test ask,with $15 pyro gun)

there is a start..

My car keeps over heating I have replaced the thermostat and radiator hoses what else could there be that keeps it over heating?


If it overheats on the freeway or constantly moving over 35 mph, it will more likley be the radiator blocked upped.

If it overheats only in slow moving traffic, it will likley be a thermo fan issue.

If it overheats all the time and is losing coolant it could be a blown head gasket.

Thermo valve broken, does this cause over heating?


if you mean "thermostat" valve .. then that can fail either open or closed . if it fails open then the engine will not reach normal operating temperatures .. if it fails closed then yes the engine will overheat .. another common failure is the radiator fan .. it only runs when the car is not moving .. as long as the car is moving then cooling air is available so the fan is not needed ... so if your car does not overheat when driven but overheats when stopped or idling then suspect the radiator fan or thermal switch (mounted on the radiator) .. that switch turns on the fan when the radiator gets so hot ... you can just listen for the fan when hot .. you should hear it .. .. if your car gets too hot while driving then suspect a bad thermostat or clogged radiator .. sometimes a bad water pump (broken implellers) will cause the trouble ..

2003 civic overheats at idle, ok when moving, fans are working


Sounds like the fins radiator is plugged with dirt and not enough air can flow thru it. Try blowing it out with compressed air

Will the fan clutch malfunctioning cause the car to act like the thermostat is not opening, we have already replaced the thermostat


Yes, if the fan clutch is bad, the car may overheat, especially when going uphill, check for a replacement or repair the esisting one filling it back with new silicona.

Car over heats


There is definately a problem with the wiring (i.e.electrical fault).

Let youe electrician run a wire to the fan separately to enable the fun run independently.

Good luck.
