Did you replace the thermostat, and check the water pump? Does the cooling fan operate as it should? A plugged catalytic converter can cause overheating. If above items check out OK you need to check for leaking head gasket.

check carefully for thin cracks on the radiator tanks(side plastic covers on radiator)you probably have to remove the radiator to get a better look. Also replace theradiator hoses if their old. If the leak continues then it's most likely your heatercore.

Your truck is overheating because it needs a new radiator. I had the same problem, after I installed the new radiator and flushed out my remaining cooling system I never had a overheating problem since.

If the electric fans do not turn on by the radiator ...if the thermostat is stuck closed...low coolant level...bad head gasket...clogged radiator...clogged exhaust pipe or catalitic converter..... All can cause overheating.

sounds like you have a cracked head or cracked block.however, i would check to make sure it is not transmission oil and thereby ruling out a radiator problem

Yes! Also a good flush will improve its performance. And may stop the overheating.

well, check your oil, engine coolant, and your radiator.

There are many reasons why a Jeep Wrangler is overheating. A leak in the radiator system will cause overheating. Too much pressure in the engine can cause overheating. A bad water pump or thermostat could cause overheating. The transmission can also cause overheating if it is leaking.

I'm not a mechanic but, I had to replace my radiator to fix the overheating problem on my 1994. That was the last thing I replaced after replacing the water pump, thermostat, and replaced my fan with a clutch fan. have not had anymore problems with it overheating once the radiator was replaced. Flush the coolant first then replace the radiator. Hope this helps.

If your truck is overheating!!! Then check the upper radiator and lower radiator hose's , if the lower is cooler the the upper the either the thermostat is not opening or the radiator is clogged

A 1991 Honda Accord could be overheating if the radiator has a leak. There could also be a problem with the head gasket.
