Yes, a restricted or leaking radiator can cause the engine to overheat.
maybe your radiator is broken and you need to get a new one or just get a reparation if the radiator starts leaking when is in use it may be leaking because of the pressure of the water.
A leaking radiator hose would NOT cause this to happen, you have 2 problems with this vehicle.
if your vehicle has computers, this can cause check engine light to come on,as a coolant leak ends up sending trouble message to computer
A leaking head gasket could cause this.
If it is leaking trans fluid into the coolant it can cause overheating.
Running it while leaking can cause it to overheat repeatedly, which can cause thermostat damage , along with other problems.
A bad or incorrect radiator cap.
no the red clay like stuff is transmission fluid in your radiator probably leaking from your transcooler
You have no wheels. - Geoff
Thermostat, blocked radiator, leaking hoses, rusted impellers on the water pump and the worst possibility, a leaking head gasket/cracked head.
Having a leak in a radiator hose will have no effect on the engine running or not. However, in time the hose leak will cause the level of the coolant in the radiator to drop below a critical level and the engine will overheat.
No it is not. It could be a problem with the radiator, a radiator hose or a water pump. In any situation, it could cause the motor to overheat and damage it severely.
Where is it leaking from? Could leak from the radiator, hoses, or water pump.
Your water pump is bad
Overeheating is usually caused by a bad thermostat, blocked radiator or leaking headgasket.
sounds like water pump.check radiator hoses as well
Only if the coolant is leaking from the heater core, but you will see this.
intake gasket, leaking radiator and radiator cap, leaking heater core,, air in the sytem that needs to be bleed by the bleed screws,,,but most of all on all these cars with the 3.8 or 3.4 are bad about intake gaskets,,hope this helps
Have it checked for codes. The code should give an indication to the cause.
A leaking heater core will cause the engine to overheat because the coolant is leaking out.
Cracked head or leaking gasket. The suction is created on the downward stroke of piston during intake stroke.
possibly you have a leaking cooling line from your trans cooler or radiator
Because there are lines running from the radiator to the tranny, this lets the fluid flow through and be cooled so that it does not over heat in the tranny and cause damage to your bands inside your tranny.
Sounds like your water level is running low. Check the level in the radiator reservoir You may also have a leak.
