i have replace the thermostat, checked the fans,filled with water and it is still overheating. Very often, the waterpump leaks and stops working only years after it was last replaced. Coolant is probably not flowing from the engine to the radiator to be cooled.

You replaced the thermostat in your 2001 Chevy venture but the van is still overheating the top radiator hose is hard and hot to the touch like the thermostat is not opening up please advise?

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.

2003 Durango overheating water pump thermostat and fan clutch replaced still overheating any ideas?

alot of times you can get an air pocket behind your thermostat there is a little trick to make sure this doesn't happen take a 1/8 drill bitt and drill a hole it the flat surface of the thermostat about center from the edge and the edge of plunger on thermostat and this will allow any air from behind it to excape and will not cause any probs with thermostat. good luck hope this takes care of prob......

Your 1999 Buick century keeps overheating you bought this car from an auction They said it needed head gaskets because of the overheating So you did that Then you changed the thermostat water pump and?

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?

Did you check the thermostat to make sure it is working? If it is and you have enough coolant, you might want to check for head gasket issue. You can rent a tester at Autozone. HTH
