One possible answer is if the radiator cap is bad. Now you have to remember that there are two seals on every rad cap. The outer one, for sealing the cap to the radiator (or pressurised overflow), and a second seal on the pressure relief valve. If either of those seals is bad, hot coolant will be able to undetectably escape the system, thus causing no signs of a leak, yet lowering the coolant level in time. Try replacing the radiator cap.
Normal causes are low coolant and an inoperative radiator fan.Normal causes are low coolant and an inoperative radiator fan.
Defective radiator caps or tubes
Check to coolant level in the coolant recovery tank and radiator when engine is cold
Possible trany cooler leak
Lack of coolant, lack of coolant flow, air in cooling system, lack of airflow over radiator,........
Broken or split hose Radiator leak heater core leak
I had this problem ....Head Gasket or radiator cap
Lack of coolant, faulty thermostat, radiator fan not working...
Could be, Restricted air flow through outside of radiator, Restricted coolant flow through inside of radiator, Faulty fan clutch, Missing or broken radiator fan shroud, Faulty thermostat, Low on coolant,
The radiator cap could be the cause of coolant reservoir overflow or backup. Have the cap checked to see if it is bad.
It could be a number of things, a clogged radiator,bad thermostat,low coolant, hoses leaking coolant, radiator fan not working,or a leaking head gasket. Hope this helps you.
coolant draining back into resivoir or possible air pocket
Bad Head gasket? Low coolant? Clogged radiator? Bad thermostat? System airbound? Defective radiator cap? Collapsing radiator hoses? Cooling fan not working? Water pump not circulating coolant?
radiator coolant switch, pcm coolant switch, relay , pcm , related circuitry or fuse.
Common causes include low coolant, inoperative radiator fan, radiator restriction.
Low coolant, plugged radiator, inoperative radiator fan, failed water pump, head gasket, thermostat.
The most common causes would be low coolant and inoperable radiator fan.
Overheating due to low coolant, inoperative fan, restricted radiator, etc.Overheating due to low coolant, inoperative fan, restricted radiator, etc.
It Could Be a Bad Gasket that causes water to mix with coolant more than likely you will see white dough like substance in radiator.
Low coolant, failed radiator fan, plugged radiator, failed water pump, head/head gasket.
Check the cooling system, and I mean everything. Thermostat, temperature sesnor(s), radiator clogs, radiator cap, badly damaged water pump, belts, you could simply need to add more antifreeze. If it isn't your coolant system, then it's your driving habbits or driving conditions, in which case you may want to slow down, get a car that can handle harsh driving, or upgrade your radiator. Also check that your electric fan is coming on.
Possible causes for overheating include failed serpentine belt, failed water pump, internal or external coolant leak, restriction in the radiator, or inoperative radiator fan.
There are many possible causes of overheating. They include low coolant, inoperative radiator fan, failed water pump, missing belts, restricted radiator, failed head gasket.
engines create friction and that makes your coolant hot , the thermostat controlls the coolant temp , in the 195 deg, range . that is why its hot .
