radiator fan, head gasket,
Is your fan coming on?
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.
your thermostat is closed. needs to be replaced. inexpensive part but can save your engine from overheating.
Inoperative radiator fans, bad water pump, failed headgasket?
Low coolant? System air bound? Hoses collapsing under pressure? Water pump not circulating coolant?
Water pump defective.
The top radiator hose is above the thermostat. If the top radiator hose is hot, the thermostat is opening. The thermostat is not the problem. Perhaps the radiator is clogged up or the water pump is bad. Look elsewhere.
Ingeneral, the fan will run only if the temperature of the radiator is above the normal range. If the fan is running, then the radiator must be over temp unless the radiator fan thermostat or it's relay is defective. If the radiator truly is over temp then you have a larger over-heating problem You state the thermostat was replaced. if you replaced the fan thermostat then either the radiator really is over temp and it is doing what it should, or there is a problem with the thermostat-fan relay or switch. If you replaced the engine thermostat that controls the flow of coolent between the engine and the radiator, then that probably wasn't your problem and you should look elsewhere for an overheating cause. I would start by determining if the engine actually is overheating or not. If it is, I would look for coolent system problems like the engine thermostat (if you didn't replace it already), water pump, leaks, scale build up in the radiator, or blockages in the system. If the engine isn't overheating then I would consentrate on the fan, fan thermostat and relays.
== try changing the thermostat. Make sure system is not air bound Replace radiator cap Make sure hoses are not collapsing under pressure
I had replaced the water pump and radiator. This had continued to overheat but not as bad. After replacing the head gasket it was finally fixed. I was able to answer my own question only after replacement.
Why dose my 232i overheating
Could be a collapsed lower radiator hose, perhaps a bad thermostat.
Well ive had the same priblem. We have got new radiator and cap. Then replaced thermostat then water pump. No more problems.
1997 DODGE STRATUS HAS A BAD ENGINE BLOCK. 85 % OF THE 1995-1998 STRATUS' HAVE BAD ENGINES. AS A RESULT, THE OTHER PROBLEMS SURFACE.
possiable head gasket
brilliant, the thermostat is backwards
Have flushed complete cooling system replaced water pump radiator thermostat clutch fan added 2gal straight anti freeze then filled to capacity with water and truck is still over heating. What else could possibly be wrong
I have already replaced the radfiator,cap,thermostat and confirmed water pump works. cools fine w/o radiator cap ,pressure builds and temp. rises when cap in place.
After 10 years radiator may be plugged or restricted - try to flush or boil out May need replacement
my 1993 Toyota Camry radiator had a hole in it it was overheating. I replaced the radiator. The car is still overheating where is the thermostat located. First, drain your coolant from the radiator. Find your lower radiator hose and follow it to the metal housing. This is the thermostat housing. Remove the 2 nuts with a 10mm wrench. Remove the thermostat and replace with new one and new gasket. Re-install and re-fill your radiator with new coolant. Drive the car with heater running. Allow the engine to cool and top off the radiator. Add coolant to the reservoir to halfway between Full and Low.
If you do not have any external leaks, a head gasket is most likely.
can the gasket go bad behind the water pump houseing
If you replaced the head gaskets, thermostat, and the water pump and it is still overheating then I would ask about the fan. If it is not the fan, then I would say that you have at least one bad head, if not two. But that is just a guess. A mechanic will pressure test the system and will be able to tell you more. Is the radiator restricted?
