My hunch would be Bad thermostat stuck in closed position
Is load greater than spec?
Does it emit blue smoke = oil burner, needs overhaul
Does oil pump work to full capacity? (is there a pressure gauge?) Does it use a lot of oil?

2000 caravan 3.3 blows cold up front.Seems warmer through back vents. Just bought. Was low on antifreeze, overflow pretty much dry. Also front fan only works part time.


If your fluid level is low this can happen. What concerns me is why is fluid level low. When your engine is cold fill your radiator and reservoir. See what happens.. You may start to get heat. Check your antifreeze everyday when cold to see if level is going down. If so you may need to replace the head gasket. Did you buy from dealer or private. If dealer they may repair, if private it's now your problem. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

How to solve overheating?


If this is a water cooled bike, it seems to be that your thermostat isn't working properly, or your fluid level is low. Check the antifreeze if low fill to proper level, if ok then replace thermostat. If this is an air cooled bike then you need to check the motor oil. I would recommend changing it and replacing it with the proper weight and capacity if it isn't low/empty. Hope this helps

Engine overheating and leaking antifreeze


Physically look in the radiator under the cap(if one exsist's) when cool, for coolant level, and check the valve in the cap for sticking. If air is present in the radiator it can't get out, and more coolant can't get in,(from the overflow). Either clean the cap or replace it and check that it is the CORRECT cap.

If radiator is low on coolant fill it to overflowing, replace cap, and check that coolant overflow is filled to the COLD line or mark. The overflow is normally where you would add coolant. (never overfill the overflow)After refilling as outlined above, check the level every morning for 2 or 3 days until coolant level stops dropping below the cold mark and add coolant to the overflow ONLY. Do not open the radiator cap. Also, if you have even a tiny coolant leak anywhere in the system, air will get drawn in, instead of coolant from the overflow.

For more OVERHEATING PROBLEMS try these...
Radiator fins dirty, clean with a strong stream of water, not high pressure water.
Radiator clogged, try backflushing it, or replace.
Thermostat stuck open or shut, replace it. Or installed BACKWARDS.
Water pump worn out, can no longer move enough coolant, replace it.
Fan shroud broken or missing....
Electric Fan(s) not working, Check the fan, relay, fuse and engine temperature sensor's.
Belt driven fan, belt slipping, fan clutch is bad, fan blades have flattened out.

Air dam under front bumper is gone, loose, or broken. It actually has a purpose other than scraping on the driveway or curbs. It forces air up into and thru the condenser and radiator. If it's loose, airflow can actually push it out of place making it useless or blocking the airflow. Along with that, there may also be a plastic piece attached to the bottom of, and wraps up behind the bumper. If it's loose, airflow can actually push it out of place blocking the airflow. Simply reattach it with 4 or 5 screws.

Also, if the vehicle has A/C and electric fans, one fan is dedicated to the A/C and should come on almost the instant the A/C is turned on. The engine fan will run even with the key off, that is normal. The system is trying to cool itself. Hope this helps.

My 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette keeps overheating. We replaced the thermostat and flushed the system by adding new antifreeze. The air blows cold from the heater when the car starts to overheat. Once


there can be air pocket somewhere you need to bleed system properly. rais the front let is idle bleed it thru bleeding screw. be sure that bubbles are over.

air pockets prevent coolant travel inside system. so it may not reach to radiator, or cabin heater or both.

Ok, so the temperature guage fluctuates between halfway up the guage and 3/4 of the way up the guage. It overheated once and there is no antifreeze in the oil and the fluid level is not going down, yet I...


Sounds like there is air trapped in the system. On a COLD engine, remove the radiator cap, and check the level. If it's low, slowly add coolant until the rad is filled right to the top, then cap it. Top up coolant overflow bottle if required. Start the engine. As the engine reaches operating temperature, the coolant level in the overflow bottle should rise. If it doesn't, it means that all the air is not yet 'burped' out of the system. Provided that the radiator cap is good, and that the coolant level is maintained at the proper level, the system should eventually expel all the air. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Hi duane i drained old antifreeze and add new one eng ran 10 min and high temp check eng came on guage is on H what do i do?


Let it cool down and check fluid level. fill leave cap off and start the engine as level lowers fill until starts to overflow and replace cap. Warning lights could be from an "air bubble" causing a sensor to see low fluid level.

Radiator tank filling procedure


take off the radiator cap and fill the rad with antifreeze. start the montor and keep watching the level of the antifreeze and keep adding as necessary. when the termostat opens you sould shee a sudden drop in level.... keep adding antifreeze. squeezing the upper rad hose will help remove air bubbles. BE EXTREMELY CARE OF THE FAN AND OTHER MOVING PARTS TO PREVENT INJURY. after you are satisfied that you have added enough fluid put the rad cap back on. fill the overflow tank to the leven it indicates.... take it for a drive and let it cool down. open the rad cap and top of the fluid if necessay.

Bleeding Air from Cooling System


With the system cold, fill the radiator with a 50/50 antifreeze and water mixture - fill it all the way to the top, then put the cap back on. Now, fill the plastic overflow bottle about 1/2 way with your antifreeze solution.
Ride the bike until normal operating temperature is achieved (or longer, if you like). Now park it and let it cool down again. Then, check the coolant level in the overflow bottle and add more antifreeze, if needed.
When you operated the engine until normal operating temperature was achieved, all air trapped in the cooling system gets pushed out by the expanding coolant (out through the overflow bottle and into the atmosphere). Then, during the subsequent cool-down period, only liquid is drawn back into the radiator from the overflow bottle as the engine coolant cools and contracts, not air. From this point, as long as the radiator cap is not removed - and the overflow bottle is maintained at the 'full' level, no air will enter the system.
