Water only will not work as the coolant temperature goes above the boiling point, you need a misture of half and half water and antifreeze and a good rad cap

SUBARU OUTBACK LEGACY estate car 2003 OVER HEATING TO THE POINT USES UP ALL THE WATER IN THE RADIATOR AFTER PROBABLY 20 MILES ?


putting water in a radiator will not work... water boils away quickly. You need to put antifreeze in it instead. If you are not sure how to do this ask a trusted friend or reliable mechanic

Car is overheating while idling.


Your radiator fan is probably failed. Pop open hood, watch temp rise, once past "normal " level teh fan should turn on. If not, you need to trouble shoot the rad fan. There should be heavy duty fuses and relays under the hood in an electrical distribution box. You should consult the owners manual or chart on the box lid. Of course the fan maybe bad itself. You can also try - turn on the AC, this will activate the 2nd (booster) fan, and should help prevent serious overheating but wont fix the underlying problem.
Good luck

Daughters 1999 turbo bettle started overheating today. Red light appeared on dash. water gushed out when resivor cap removed. engine [while running] would not take new water, water kept gushing back. then...


SOUND LIKE BAD THERMOSTAT REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP..BUT YOU NEED TO MIX 50/50 MIXTURE OF ANTIFREEZE AND WATER IN THE COOLING SYSTEM TO RAISE BOILING TO KEEP CAR FROM OVERHEATING.

MY CAR IS OVERHEATING. HOW CAN I KNOW IF IT HAS AIR LOCK IN THE COOLING SYSTEM AND HOW CAN I FIX IT???? THANKS


Be sure to turn heater on full during filling. You can tell about air by pressure testing the system.

Also, you must that the correct type and volume of antifreeze or unit will not cool properly.

What. exactly do you mean by overheating? Boiling water out? Fans on too much...?

My 2002 mondeo ghia is overheating and the fan is not kicking in, aso have to fill water bottle at least twice a day


Have your belt(s) checked for tightness, have your water pump checked, replace the thermostat and ALWAYS keep enough antifreeze in the system to protect it to 20° below zero. It is also anti-boil.

Car is still overheating after new thermostat, new housing.....


bleed air out cooling system. put half antifreeze and half water .if you got too much water .it willl cause engine to over heat. antifreeze raise boiling point .220 degrees it wont boil away . water will evaporate 212 degrees.it will boil away .causing low coolant problems and over heating.

Overheating


Having the radiator rodded is a good move. Retest. If it has an electric radiator fan check temp sensors. If the fan has a clutch it may need to be replaced if its slipping with the engine hot. Check bellts. Its likely a fan air flow issue if the engine overheats when the care is not moving or is moving slowly. If the engine overheats only with AC on that narrows it down. Write back if that's the case. Lots of things can cause this. Antifreeze and a good radiator cap discourages boiling. Pressure in the radiator raises the boiling point but it can't build up pressure if the cap is bad. Antifreeze also raises the boiling point. If actual boiling happens in the engine then steam builds up in critical places and drives the collant out of the block making the engine even hotter than it already is. Replace the cap. Check the antifreeze.

Were are the sensors for the engine fans in a nissaan sentra gxe


One of the common things that gets missed at times is the radiator is down in cooling antifreeze. The car will act as normal during the warm up cycle and then the temperature guage will rise and then it will slowly come back down as the thermostat opens and/or the electric cooling fans come on. In actuality the engine is overheating, but it is not boiling over. The level of abtifreeze is at just the right level of lowness that you experience this phenomenon. After the engine cools off , (DO NOT REMOVE WHEN HOT - YOU CAN GET SCALDED WITH BOILING WATER/ANTIFREEZE)), remove the radiator cap and check the level within the radiator and also the antifreeze reservoir level. You can buy a 50-50 mix of antifreeze and water that is ready to put into the radiator. If the level in both the radiator and reservoir are correct, you may have a bad thermostat or some other problem.
