1993 grand am changed thermostat radiator cap water pump and flushed it fan seems to work but still gets overheats why?
Well, what you've already done should take care of most of the problems I can think of, but you could have a clogged hose somewhere, or you could be low on antifreeze. Also, if you have a damaged or aftermarket front grill, you may not be getting enough airflow, even with the fans. Also, something else you could check is your temperature sensor. It's possible that the sensor is bad, and is giving the computer false values, making you think the engine is overheating when it really isn't. That's really all I can think of, unless you live in the desert or something. You might just have to bight the bullet and have a mechanic look at it. I'm sure you're frustrated, so good luck. Also check the water pump a water pump not circulating will cause the car to build up heat and over heat. Check to see if the radiator is cold if it is and you have no heat that could very well be it. If those are the case and the coolant reservoir is hot that is a water pump. Also if you can squeeze the top hose and hear or see the coolant is filling up in the collant tank cause of that you know you don't have a clooged radiator normally. A water pump doesn't just have to leak to be bad. Also double check your tail pipe for buring of antifreeze smell it and check your oil level to make sure its not mixing.
2004 Monte Carlo overheats radiator replaced cooling sensor replaced cooling system flushed fans replaced thermostat replaced any suggestions on fixing problem?
Changed thermostat flushed radiator new water pump still getting hot and leaking radaitor is not getting hot could it still be thermostat?
Your 2000 wrangler sport is running hot and have already flushed system replaced the radiator thermostat changed the oil and the air filter and my oil pressure gauge is going all the way to 80.?
97 Dodge Intrepid 3.5 overheating -changed therm and water pump -flushed radiator and heater core - would temp sending unit be bad-fans work - want to check everything before jumping into head gasket?
If a Ford Tempo GL 2.3 continually almost overheats but there appears to be no antifreeze leak what is wrong?
I would do a complete coolant replacement and have the system flushed. Also replace the thermostat, and radiator cap, which may very well be your problem. If you are loosing coolant and there is no apparent leak, then you may have a blown head gasket. This can do serious damage to the engine. Have this looked into ASAP.
Ive replaced the thermostat water pump and flushed the radiator on my 96 Chevy lumina and now it jumps from 125 to 260 while im driving It also overheats while im driving.?
1997 Monte Carlo overheats heat cuts on and off tryed replacing thermostat radiator cap flushed radiator thermo stuck shut so block not flushed still not working?
The coolant system is made up of many parts, I'll list the important ones first: 1) Thermostat 2) Water Pump 3) Radiator and Cap(s) 4) Hoses/Coolant Lines 5) Ports within the engine block for coolant flow T-Stats, purchased from local auto shops, and sometimes even dealers, are not necessarily good right out of the box. In other words, in my experience, only 3 out of 5 T-Stats are NOT defective. My first guess, try another…
Why does your 2001 Ford Taurus heater not get very warm after i totally flushed and filled the radiator and changed the thermostat?
1996 Ford Taurus overheating slightly water pump changed last year radiator flushed less than 6 months ago water fine no leaks. could it be the thermostat?
What would cause a 2000 Ford Focus ZTS to overheat despite having the water pump and thermostat replaced Not leaking antifreeze overheats regardless of AC being on or off Fans are working?
What makes a temp gauge bounce back and forth but doesnt overheat on a 1999 s10 changed temp sensor thermostat radiator cap and clutch on fan and flushed and changed coolant?
Make sure you have the correct thermostat in there, if it is set too high you will get that bouncing. The thermostat is set to open at a certain temperature and allow the coolant to exchange with what is in the radiator. Under normal conditions you will notice a rise and fall of the temp gage as the coolant reaches max temp then lowers after the exchange. An overly sensitive sensor or an aftermarket gage…
I have a 97' camaro RS it has been overheating flushed it changed the thermostat then changed the water pump. it will not blow hot air. and still overheats could someone help please?
Your 1998 seems to run hotter in the winter now than in the summer just past--is that a computer control issue or do you have a problem that will show up later?
Engine temperature is controlled by the thermostat. An engine can often run hotter if the thermostat has started to fail or if the radiator is partially blocked. The computer is not involved in temperature control. Have the rad and cooling system flushed and change the thermostat at the same time. Have the heater core pressure tested and flushed out.
92 grand am new thermostat new water pump new radiator cap flushed fan works still overheats any suggestions?
front of the radiator can plug up with debris, bugs, cotton from driving. take off the radiator upper retention plate, and look in between the radiator and the AC condenser. Blow out with pressurized air. Other than that, you could have an air bubble in the cooling system. Check all your fluids -- make sure oil pump is working check electric fan if equipped.
