Overheating problem with your 91 skylark 2.5l you have replaced the t-stat and flushed the coolant system that worked for about 6 months and it seems to come and go now does anyone have any idea how?
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.
Whats the problem with a 1998 olds intrigue having replaced everything except the radiator in the cooling system and flushed the system but the car stills overheats what is the problem?
Why would a Peugeot 106 continue to overheat but faster after the radiator was drained flushed and refilled with coolant?
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. Answer i had this problem…
Why would the coolant not circlulate even after you have replaced the water pump and the thermostat twice bled the system and checked for blockage?
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…
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…
96 grand am se 3.1 and it keeps overheating when idle or driving slow but it stays cool when im in constant motion or in winter got to keep heat on during summer .i changed thermostat and flushed rad.?
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
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.
You'v replaced your thermostat and radiator on your 1983 cutlass and its still overheating what is causing it to still overheat could it be the water pump?
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.
A water pump is a mechanical device; it will always work as long as the belt is on it. When a water pump is bad on a car it will always have either a bearing ( noise) problem or seal ( leakage) problem. If your water pump does not have these problems then it is OK. If you have overheating problems, change your engine thermostat first and try that.Also it may need new coolant or…
Had problem of coolant leak not visable on my 1999 Pontiac Grand AM SE. Turned out that IT WAS the intake manifold gasket that was defective and the cause was the DEX-COOL (orange coolant) that was causing the problem. It chemically was attacking the material that was in the gasket causing it to breakdown prematurely. There is a class action law suit going on now against GM for this very reason. I had the…
Why After getting no heat or engine not warming up you replaced the thermostat flushed rad etc twice with the same result Overheating what else could it be on an 87 suburban Chevy 350?
If I understand this right, there were 2 original problems. 1-no heat, 2- engine not warming up. Now the new problem is overheating, correct? Overheating is usually a function of poor circulation or poor heat transfer, assuming the coolant level is at proper point. 1) Sticking thermostat - if open, no heat and poor engine warmup. if closed, no flow and overheating. 2) Radiator fins degrading and beginning to rust/corrode or come apart. This will…
Why does a 1999 venture temp gauge heat up and show low coolant when you turn on the heater - have replaced thermostat - coolant sensor - flushed air out of system and pressure checked it OK.?
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.
Ive replaced the thermostat water pump and flushed the radiator on my 96 Chevy lumina and now it jumps from 125 to 260 while im driving It also overheats while im driving.?
If there's no leak, an overheat is caused by a problem with coolant level, coolant circulation, or heat transfer. Fill the coolant level. If the problem recurs within a month, it was something other than low level. Circulation problems are caused by clogged radiators, bad water pumps, non-functioning thermostats.
Your 1997 Honda passport is overheating How do you diagnose what the problem is to make the proper repairs?
Overheating is due to, well, the coolant in the cooling system getting too hot. In a normally operating engine, this should never be a problem. First, check that the coolant level is correct. If it is correct, I would suspect a problem with the thermostat. When the engine is cold, the thermostat closes off coolant flow through the engine until the coolant reaches a pre-determined temperature. When that temperature is reached, the thermostat opens to…
Why does my 2001 cavalier temperature gauge max out high and then go all the way back down to c when I stop at a light The low coolant light comes on but doesn't stay on and there is no heat?
it is normal, when the coolant is hot and pressure built, the pressure cap allows the coolant to drain to reservoir to reduce pressure in the cooling system But, if it continually does this whereby the reservoir overflows and the vehicle overheats due to a lack of coolant actually in the radiator when cool, there may be an overheating problem or blown head gasket on the engine.
You say it's not the radiator, but when coolant in radiators is not flushed out at service intervals, corrosion can occur inside the radiator, diminishing coolant flow. This would present as overheating, especially in the summer months. Radiator flush/cleaing services are sold at Jiffy-Lube, etc, but you can get the same chemical packets at Pep Boys, NAPA, etc. Good Luck Also: check to see if you have water coming in your passenger side. Check the…
What causes the coolant temperature gauge to be in the red zone and the check engine light is not on?
2004 Monte Carlo overheats radiator replaced cooling sensor replaced cooling system flushed fans replaced thermostat replaced any suggestions on fixing problem?
How can you tell if the head gasket is blown on a 1998 Saturn and is there a chance the head gasket is blown if it keeps overheating but otherwise runs perfectly?
The easiest way to see if a head gasket is blown is to check the oil, if it is light brown and milky looking then the head gasket is blown. My 1998 Saturn would always overheat. I had replaced the radiator twice and all of the hoses but it continued to happen. The people at Saturn did not know the problem. I brought it to a raditor place and the replaced the gauge that reads…
What would cause your 1994 camaro to over heat for a little while then run good until you shut it off and start it back up?
Radiator coolant pouring out from behind radiator more on passenger side car overheating what can cause this on a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee?
Engine Coolant is probably coming out of a small hole on the bottom of your water pump. This usually means your seals are gone in the pump and that the pump should be replaced. This happened to my '93 Jeep Grand Cherokee on I-40 near Knoxville about 3 years ago. NEW ADDITION: I am having the same problem with my 94 grand Cherokee today, we replaced the water pump and the problem still persists, there…
