What to do when 2006 Chrysler Pacifica engine temp warning light comes on?


Do not continue to operate. Operating an overheated engine will cause the engine to fail.

After the engine has cooled,
Confirm that the engine has coolant.
Confirm that the reservoir is full to the mark
Start engine and confirm as engine gets warm cooling fan at radiator turns on

Confirm that the rubber engine belt is working
Put in car heater to full hot and blower on.
Confirm heat is hot from car heater.
If heater is not hot possible water pump failure or air in coolant system keeping the coolant from circulating.
Allow to cool completely.
Remove cap start engine and observe coolant flowing at or near cap. Observe bubbling or exhaust gases coming from radiator

Check for water in oil by pulling dip stick
  • White smoke from the exhaust pipe
  • Overheating engine
  • Bubbles in the radiator or coolant overflow tank
  • White milky oil
  • Significant loss of coolant with no visible leaks
If milky likely a blown head gasket

Hope this helps?

My chevy Venture van still overheating after radiator replaced, temp gauge replaced and fans fixed. WHY?


You may have air trapped in the cooling system. This will cause overheating. When you fill the system, there is a small brass air purge valve above the coolant pump and another on the thermostat housing. These need to be loosened and trapped air released when filling the cooling system.

My 1997 camry overheated. We flushed the radiator, but noticed cracks in the reservoir. Will this be causing the issue, and will repair / repalcement stop the overheating?


The overflow tank won't cause it to overheat. If you have added radiator stop leak just replace the radiator is stopped up.

Overheating can be caused by blown head gasket ,coolant leak from pipes, radiator, water pump faulty or lack of water
the boom you have a blown engine requiring a stripdown and quote for rebuild may be cheaper to fit a reconditioned motor

Why is my car overheating?


Hello,

when the car overheats, is there still water in the radiator?

If there is water in the radiator and the car overheats, then it means there might be some dirt or blockage in the radiator or condenser.

When the car is on the motion, air passes through the front and assists the fan to cool the engine. There are situation whereby air doesn't have free flow because of blockage in the radiator and condenser. Dust and debris can cause blockage. If this be the case, have your radiator washed thoroughly and cleaned.

If there is no water in the radiator when the car overheats, then there is a probably a leakage from the water pump. Or maybe your fan isn't blowing properly. The fan might be blowing weak air.

The above are what could cause your engine to over heat.

So start the check from the radiator. Poor water into the radiator, wait for some minutes, look under the car and observe if water is going to leak. If there is a leak, it might be from the water pump or a leaking hose.

If water from radiator has no leak, have your radiator washed and clean the condenser has they might block air that is suppose to cool the engine.

Also, make sure your fan is blowing properly or well enough to cool the engine.

Make sure you have the above checked thoroughly as they are the major causes of problems like this.

This overheating problem could lead to a burnt gasket and this can dry the engine oil which will eventually knock the engine. So have this problem fixed to prevent further damage that will cost you more money.

Lastly, remove the hose that connects the radiator to the engine, water from the engine will come out. Pour water into the radiator, the water will flow through the hose down to the ground. Do this severally. Now connect the hose back to the engine, pour water into the radiator. Start the engine, the water in the radiator will reduce, add more water till radiator is full.

In summary, the major cause of over heating problem is from the radiator, fan, water pump, blockage in the hose, and dirt in in/on the condenser. These are area you need to concentrate on.

I forgot to mention that the acceleration meter or engine meter on the dash board shouldn't be more the 5. It should be below 5. If it is above 5, it can cause overheating. I hope you understand what I mean.....

Regards.

2000 chevy malibu keeps overheating. wont hold coolant. coolant boils out through overflow. and heater has stopped working


hi this could be caused by a couple of things, thermostat not opening is one of the main one, fan heater switch on the radiator is another, and obviously water leak is another, the first one thermostat, can replaced relatively cheaply, for a few bucks, you could do it yourself if you have the correct tools, to find out if it is thermostat, fill water first, run motor till it starts to get hot, feel the hoses on either side of the radiator ( top and bottom hoses be careful not to burn yourself in the process) if one is very hot, and the other is warm to cold, that will be the thermostat, second, the radiator fan switch, fill water, run motor, watch temp Gage, if by the time it has reached over half way on the temp Gage and the rad fan has still not cut in then this is normally a sign the switch on the radiator is u/s and needs replacing ( check fuse for fan to and relay this will also stop fan from working ) also to check for leaks, fill water, ( try not to spill any ) then if available a large cloth or sheet under car, run engine ( making sure first the other items have been checked ) and just observe for dripping water hope this helps

I have to give it gas to turn over and when I come to stops it heats up, I just changed the water pump,thermostat,and had raidiator cleaned and cap changed


two problems are unrelated. the overheating can be caused by a lack of electric radiator fan operation. the morining problem can be caused by a dirty throttle body
check them both out and let me know
