Make sure you have coolent in the radiator. the engine shouldn't go above 115 degrees Celcius, or you risk warps and cracks.

1997 Chevy Lumina 3.1 engine. The cooling fans aren't coming on tell the car heats up to over 250 degrees.


Did you check for applicable trouble codes? Anything? Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free.
Check the coolant temp sensor, if you haven't already? Some makes and models if you turn on the ac, the fan/s will run. If you unplug the coolant temp sensor, the fan may run.
I might want to use non--contact infrared temp gun just to double-check temp gage.
Have you ever checked thermostat or coolant flow through the radiator. I understand it only heats at idle.

01 yamaha r1 overheating at idle on hot day, but fans are working?


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Low coolant level.
2. Restricted radiator air flow.
3. Faulty thermostat.
4. Coolant pump or fans inoperative.
5. Vent hose crimped.
6. Air in the coolant and needs bleeding.
7. Engine idling too long or bike moving too slow.

Why won't the fan start on a 2000 Vulcan 800


Sit at a traffic light till the temp reaches about 220, it should start about then. My fan has come on 3 times in 8 years.

I was sitting in traffic today and my coolant temp light came on I looked down the fan wasnt running it was on for a couple min till traffic picked up again didnt come back on so when i got home i grounded...


The most common fan problem Honda has with over heating is with the two wire fan switch on the radiator not working correctly. I think you have nailed it.

What is the normal engine temperature of the 929 when hot


My bike runs exactly 100 degrees more than outside temp, when running, in city traffic it heats up fast. The temp will go over 210, the fans kick on at about 211. They have only come on 3 times in 10 years. So, I would assume your bike is close to the same. 900 water cooled.

Temp gauge goes up when aircon is on while in heavy traffic.


Check coolant sensors and make sure you actually have coolant in the radiator and not water. Check to make sure your coolant themostate is operation proberly. Make sure the coolant fan is operating properly, if not replace the radiator coolant fan. Although it may be working it may be dragging and comeing on late or quiting early.

2000 Chevy Silverado normal operating temp is 210 , recently temp rises to 250. Its been this way for a few days, common operating temp is around 240-250 now, but does not overheat. Coolant levels are...


250 TOO HOT FOR ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION. SOUND LIKE COOLING FAN CLUTCH BAD ITS FREEWHEELING NOT LOCKING UP TO DIRECT DRIVE TOO COOL ENGINE OFF BECAUSE THE FAN CLUTCH THERMOSTAT NOT WORKING THE HOT SILICONE OIL CAUSE IT TO EXPAND TO PUT RESISTANCE ON CLUTCH TO PUT DRAG ON FAN CLUTCH CAUSING IT TO LOCK IN GIVE IT DIRECT DRIVE.I WOULD STILL REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP IF TEMPERATURE STILL 250 DEGREES YOUR RADIATOR AND COOLANT SYSTEM NEED FLUSHING.
