When i drive my van for about 10 minutes the temperature gauge float s over toward the overheating area more.Whjat could cause that?


Could be many things to cause that kind of issue, but here are some tips of what to look for

Check you coolant level
Check to see if your belt is on the engine
with engine runnng and hands clear, at idle, allow van to warm up, when guage hits normal before it start to climb out of normal, listen for the fan to come on, if you can't tell another way to tell is put a towel on the out side of grill, if it holds up to grill, fan is pulling air, if not fan clutch made need to be replaced
If all above is good, chances are with no leaks and fan working, you will need to replace the thermostat and gasket

Good luck

My 2000 Saturn SL2 is overheating. At first it would overheat when sitting idle and then once speed reached 35+mph it would cool off, but now it gets hot and stays. What is causing this?


Well, the overheating at an idle would normally be caused by your cooling fan not engaging. I would first check to see if you fan is working by turning on your a/c (this will override the fan sensor and turn it on before it gets above operating temperature). If it doesn't come on you should check your AUX. Fan Relay. If thats ok, you probably need a new fan motor but first replace your coolant temp. sensor as this is an inexpensive parts and may save you quite a bit of money (also your vehicle may be running at the normal temperature but your temp sensor may be sending a signal telling you it's hot). This will explain why it was overheating at an idle. As far as it overheating while driving, you should first check to see if your water pump is leaking and make sure your belt is intact. If the water pump pulley is not spinning your belt will be glossy from excessive heat from friction. If your water pump is good and you can spin the pulley by hand, you should then consider when the last time you replaced the thermostat as it may be stuck closed. also your radiator may have some blockages in it so I would replace the thermostat, drain the coolant by removing the lower hose and spray a hose into the radiator until the water comes out looking pretty clear. I hope this helps you figure this out.

Every time it rains the fan belt comes off-why?


I had the same problem with my 97 t&c. The fix was to repair the drain hose coming from the air inlet grill just below the windshield. the drain is directly above the belt and allows water to spill on the belt if the hose has rotted away. Hope this helps... tuvixx@juno.com

My car is overheating and i need to know how to put in the water pump?


Is the water pump leaking coolant? If not, then why do you think it's bad?

If the engine is overheating, there are several other things to look at before you consider the replacing the water pump.

Are the fans electric motor driven, or fan belt driven? If fan belt driven, replace the fan clutch. If electric motor driven, check the fan control module and/or fan motors to make sure all is good there. Fan control module tend to fail in weird ways, so if nothing is wrong with the motors, replace the module.

Always, always, replace a thermostat that has overheated. Once overheated, they consistently fail. Make sure you properly refill the radiator with coolant after the stat is changed.

Check that the bottom radiator hose does not collapse.

Check the radiator for corrosion. Boil the radiator out, or have it done, or replace the radiator.

Overheating


The thermostat is behind the upper radiator hose...remove the upper radiator hose and loosen and then remove the two bolts on the outlet (where the upper radiator hose ends) The thermostat is inside that outlet...Another thing to check is if there is water in the oil...If there is water in the oil then it could have a head gasket problem..Did you ever replace the thermostat? If it is stuck then it would also cause overheating...Excessive exhaust backpressure because of a clogged catalytic converter could also cause overheating..Also check belt tension and condition. A loose belt that slips may prevent the water pump from circulating coolant fast enough and/or the fan from turning fast for proper cooling...Another thing it could be is a faulty Water pump -- Any wobble in the pump shaft or seepage would call for replacement. In some instances, a pump can cause an engine to overheat if the impeller vanes are badly eroded due to corrosion or if the impeller has come loose from the shaft. The wrong pump may also cause an engine to overheat. Some engines with serpentine drive belts require a special water pump that turns in the opposite direction of those used on the same engine with ordinary V-belts... Also check the Fan -- With mechanical fans, most overheating problems are caused by a faulty fan clutch, though a missing fan shroud can reduce the fan's cooling effectiveness by as much as 50% (depending on the fan's distance from the radiator) which may be enough to cause the engine to overheat in hot weather or when working hard.

Overheating 2005 Equinox, after belt replacement.


This could be Caused by a Faulty Tensioner not keeping the Belt Tight enough or even the Thermostat. Check the Belt and see how tight it is First.
