Can a faulty BMW 2001 325ci Thermostat cause coolant leak?
A faulty thermostat in a 2001 BMW 325CI can cause a coolant leak. The coolant may be leaking out a crack in the thermostat or through a warped edge. In some cases the problem may be just a bad gasket and not actually a problem with the thermostat at all.
99 cavalier will not hold water replaced the heater core not the oil and not on the ground. What could be wrong?
to add to this, a big YES,on the radiator cap .the radiator cap needs to be specific pressure rating. radiator caps do wear out. also the cheapest fix to start It is doubtful a radiator cap would cause a car to overheat. Common overheating causes are insufficient coolant, leaking coolant (into or out of your engine), faulty thermostat, blown cooling fan fuse, faulty fan temperature switch ( sender ), faulty fan, or a faulty fan…
Can a faulty thermostat on a 97 eclipse cause the car to run poorly after heating up spit and sputter?
Several possibilities - from easiest to most expensive: Faulty or inoperable radiator cooling fan - causing overheating. Faulty thermostat - causing overheating. Water pump failure - causing overheating. Blown head gasket - allowing exhaust gasses to escape into the cooling system and expelling the coolant.
Just replaced your radiator now temperature gage goes up to three quarters or higher then comes back down to mid range what could cause this?
What is the cause of Top hosepipe hot bottom hosepipe cold cooling fan still working is it the thermostat or head casket?
It is either low on coolant or the cooling fans aren't operating properly. Also the cause could be the thermostat not opening and closing when its surpost to... if your car has one of those guages for temp such as mine then it might be a faulty guage, temp sensor or the sensor that opperates the fan... if the fan is kicking on and off like it should then theres nothing wrong with that, it…
An engine can overheat from several reasons. A faulty thermostat is the most common cause, provided that there is nothing else wrong. A plugged radiator or a faulty water pump can also cause the problem. Once an engine has overheated the head will often warp causing the coolant to "blow out" of the cooling system and making it impossible to keep running without overheating. Damaged hoses or other leaks can cause overheating as well.
What would cause the temp gauge on a 2000 Nissan Altima to raise to hot and car is not overheating gauge just moves up and down and the fan comes on?
Certainly. If the engine coolant is flowing freely into the radiator, it will remain quite cool and the coolant that circulates into the heater core will never warm up. The thermostat blocks the coolant from entering into the radiator if the temperature is below the set level on the thermostat. Usually 185, or 195 degrees F. Engines don't run as efficiently at the lower temperature either, so if the thermostat isn't working right, replace it.
this is normal for this engine, in fact anything short will trip a check engine light. the cause will be a low coolant condition, a thermostat stuck in the open position or a bad coolant sensor. this is normal for this engine, in fact anything short will trip a check engine light. the cause will be a low coolant condition, a thermostat stuck in the open position or a bad coolant sensor.
