The viscous fan hub is a big problem related to overheating especially at lights or working slowly with high rpms
replace the thermostat as it is a requirement to stop overheating as well because with out it coolant passes to fast down the radiator cores and doesn't allow the heat to be transferred to the air
bubbling is boiling so check the temp gauge operation

I have a 2001 dakota that is overheating. put in new thermostat, didnt help. put in new water pump, still overheating. finally replaced the radiator. still is overheating. what else can I do to fix it


Sometimes when you open cooling system, air gets in, it can cause problems with temp gage.
How hot does it get in degrees F? Is the coolant boiling over? Are you losing coolant? Use a non-contact infra red temp gun to take engine temp, At least we will have a degrees F reading. Most temp gages say hi or lo, cold or hot. I don't know about yours?
Can you check for combustion gases in the coolant?

3l diesel . hilux .pressure in radiator


bleed any air out by loosening off the highest hose ( heater hose )
run with the heater open (on) to move any air out of the heater core
normally not problem with toyota but worth the check first

it could be a head gasket or cracked head
have a compression test done to determine the problem

Its throwing coolant from rad cap or expansion tank


Could be a resticted radiator, or a thermostat that is stuck closed. A BAD HEAD OR HEAD GASKET WILL NOT HOWEVER, ALWAYS MIX OIL AND COOLANT. The best thing to do is purchase a block tester. It's a cheap(around thirty dollars)way to rule out a breached head gasket. Most parts stores have these. Follow the enclosed directions. If you can rule these combustion breeches out, then replace the thermostat, and if that fails, my next guess would be a restricted radiator. I am assuming that your coolant fan is operating properly.

Why my car toyota hilux 2l is overheating


it could be the ff.
1. radiator is clogged
2. no coolant
3. cooling fan is not working fine
4. thermostat valve is stuck up
5. water pump is damaged
6. radiator cap is broken
7. coolant is leaking somewhere
8. the worst is broken cylinder head gasket but broken head gasket always leaves a trace like water is draining w/o a drip or oil is mixing up with your coolant inside reservoir. try eliminating the easy things before deciding to have the cylinder head removed.

Engine temp gage spikes to 260 degree when


are you sure the cooling fans are working?
Is the coolant temp gauge telling the truth?
have you lifted the hood and heard the coolant bubbling into the overflow?
Or heard the tinging sound of a red hot engine?
If he did a liquid test with the dye,and it changed colors it should have changed very fast,
Another thing to think about if he was to take the fan belt off,and pull the thermostat housing off,and removed the thermostat,Now pour coolant into the thermostat hole to almost the top,Now start the car and see which side the bubbles come from,left or right,that will be the gasket that is leaking not both.

Thermastat stuck and cooling fans do not come on


If your thermostat is stuck in the closed position , it will not let coolant circulate to the radiator and the engine will overheat quickly. Fans won't come on because the temp sensor for the fans is usualy in the radiator. If the thermostat dosn't send hot coolant to the radiator , the fans don't know they should be on.
Only solution is to replace the faulty thermostat. I recomend that you dont drive the car at all with the bad thermostat. major overheat could severly damage Heads , head gasket , engine.

Suburban 2001 temperature gage fluxuating from high to low


Is it just the gauge or is the engine coolant temperature varying? Does the heater seem to vary in temperature when it is on.
It could be a couple of different things.
One could be a malfunctioning temp sending unit, it has lost its calibration.
Two, your thermostat is cycling open and closed from a weak return spring, worn out.
Make sure coolant level is correct and the mixture is 50/50.
Let me know.
