SOURCE: 1995 dodge intrepid overheating problem

I have had trhis problem for months. Replaced everything and just found out it was air in the system. I purchased a tool take sucks all the fluids out of the cooling system into a bucket along with any air. Once the all the air is sucked out you reverse the the flow and it sucks the coolent back into the reserve and it works great after that. Has not over heated for weeks.

I had the same overheating problem in my jeep ! My problem was finaly found out to be the clutch in my fan its a different kind of clutch system it work as this. When your jeep gets warmer the tighter your fan clutch gets .While cool your fan moves slowly. now to test your clutch just warm up your jeep and rev it up a bit if your fan dose not pick up speed then it is sliping.What will come out of this is that you fan will the seez and run full all the time. if you jeep dose not overheat wile moving then it is not your thermo stat period.

SOURCE: saturn L200 keeps overheating , I have replace

Either the coolant is escaping, or not circulating. If there is coolant in a puddle under where the car is usually parked, then I would look above that point, track the leak back to its origin and fix the leak. If the exhaust smells of coolant, then you need a real shop repair for a gasket or worse.
If the coolant is not circulating then I would check for a bad water pump or a blocked radiator. Lots of the L Saturns had leaking heater cores, a slippery wet passenger floor and stink was the indicator.

SOURCE: 1998 aurora overheating

I had the same problem and tried several things that didn't help. A friend introduced me to a Northstar mech. that explained the real problem. Internal engine relief was faling which created overheating between cylinder sleeves and engine block creating blow back pressure in cooling system. There is a fix for this. The mechanic helped me with the problem and car is running once more... Anyone thinking they have a head gasket, intake gasket, or thermostate problem should look at this fix.

I have a Ford Taurus SES 2001. When the engine cools down I get two small patches of coolant that drip off of the front (water pump end of the engine) corners of the engine block. I have had the head...


Hello, You do have a water temperature sensor and radiator hose on top of the engine. There is a simple tool for testing the cooling system. A radiator pressure testing pump can pressurize the cooling system and even check the cap.

Some of the autoparts stores like Autozone, Advance, and Oreillys have tool loaner programs for a refundable deposit. This tool is similar to a bicycle pump with fittings for the radiator cap opening. You just pump up the system to the pressure stated on the cap.

The test can be run on a cold or warm engine. I hope my solution will let you find your leak.

Car is overheating and i replaced the intake manifold gaskets


Did you replace the thermostat? Take off the radiator cap and see if this helps. Sometimes the caps also go bad. Warm up the engine after you make sure there is plenty of coolant in the radiator. Look into the radiator and make sure the water in circulating when it is running. If it is not, it could be you water pump, or thermostat is stuck and not opening. Be careful not to burn yourself and do not let the motor get to hot.

2.3l ranger keeps overheating, been through two radiators already.


Hello Ranger Joe, eight months and two radiators is very uncommon. Question, Have you visually confirmed the leak in the radiators or is the leak near the hose connections? Replacing the radiator, cap, water pump, & the thermostat leaves only two others, the hoses and the engine block/heads. Far fitched will be something or somebody poking holes in the radiator.
