Water pump with a broken impeller blade. Possibly defective fan relay, fan motor, or fan clutch, depending on what it uses.

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 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.

Check your coolant levels and make sure it is up to level and decent looking...Coolant (in this case) should be a nice Lime green. Engine Thermostat is probably the most likely cause of overheating...It should be replaced if you haven't already.

AnswerThis is a symptom of an overheating engine. See "Related Questions" below for an excellent trouble-shooting guide to overheating problem.

It is possible that the coolant mixture is not correct- that can make a car run hot. It is possible for the water pump to go out. Also it is possible to be having a problem with the radiator fan.

change your oil asap. and check your coolant level, you may need to have your radiator flushed and filled, but just having an oil change could take care of your problem. hope this helped : )

If your radiator isnt leaking and car is having a over heating problem and coolant spewing out. Chances are your thermostat needs replaced. possible the radiator needs to be flushed. But more likley its thermostat

First off, check your engine coolant tank. If it's low, then that's the problem. Put more coolant in. If it's at the correct level, then look to see if there's gunk buildup. Second, is your engine overheating? If the engine is not overheating, and there is gunk buildup in the coolant tank, then you may just need to clean the sensor. If there is no gunk in your tank, your coolant level is fine, and your engine is not overheating, then it may be a bad sensor, and you need to replace it.

I hope you replaced the coolant with a 50/50 mix of coolant and water. Pure coolant will overheat and freeze quicker than a mix. You should have replaced the thermostat, and checked the water pump, and fans for proper operation. Also after draining and refill the cooling system, it must be bled properly, which I suspect is your problem. Trapped air in the system will cause the engine to overheat.Answeri had this problem you've got to wait for the water to circulate. just open the cap and pour more water in (i put 2L of water in)

You are OVERHEATING. You most likely have an intake or Head gasket problem.

Thermostat possibly installed upside down. Also a possible clogged radiator. we have had the same problems. replaced water pump thermo 3 times flushed sys twice repaired radiator,replaced hoses even left thermo out and still overheating help me too PLEASE!!!!! If you replaced the head gasket, it may not be installed in properly. I.E. coolant passages blocked by gasket. Could be air locked. I had this problem with a 1995 Grand Am. Get yourself a repair manual and follow the entire procedure to bleed all air in the cooling system. Some vehicles have a bleeder valve between the water pump and thermostat housing.

likely possibilities are the following. Low or bad coolant , water pump, thermostat needs changing, clogged radiator or lines, coolant temperature sensor or radiator fans not coming on, head gasket Also check the radiator caps on the hose and the overflow container. That was my problem. One or both may have to be replaced.

i would have replaced water pump long before replacing radiator. also check engine oil to see if it has engine coolant mixed in.if it has then the problem is more likely to be a bad head gasket

The question is why do you think it should? Is there an overheating problem with your Outback?

i had the same problem in my 96 grand-am i actually replaced the radiator, coolant overflow tank, and thermostat before it stopped. Check your coolant overflow tank and check for cracks and whatknot. If nothing else check the fan and make sure all belts are in proper motion and stuff. hope i was some help

The Engine Coolant Temperature in the Engine is higher than it should be. Check your radiator coolant level - also your radiator may be clogged or thermostat may be stuck.

If you see smoke coming from under the hood of your vehicle this indicates a serious problem. Your car is overheating, this could be because of low coolant in the radiator or another problem with the radiator.

A tune up usually solves the problem. We've had the same problems with a Chevy Suburban and a Ford Taurus. The spark plugs were replaced, some stock parts in the Ford were also replaced, but ultimately certain parts in the engine needed to be flushed and cleaned. Also, the vehicle may be overheating. Check the radiator / Cooling system is working properly.

Overheating is always caused by a problem with the cooling system. you may have a leak, or a clog, or air trapped in the system. check there is no oil in the coolant, and the coolant level is sufficient. if there is oil (it will look creamy rather than translucent) or the level is low, bring it to a garage for inspection and repair.
