What causes neither radiator fan to turn on when the car is overheating in a 1997 Chevy Malibu?
check all the relay switches that's what was causing my problems
The most common cause of overheating is a thermostat stuck in the closed position. However, other causes are: faulty water pump, clogged radiator, clogged hose(s), coolant leak or a broken drive belt. I had a 1987 legend with around 160K that was overheating. Antifreeze would boil out of the overflow. I changed my radiator and it fixed the problem.
99 cavalier will not hold water replaced the heater core not the oil and not on the ground. What could be wrong?
There are several possible causes. 1. Check the fan. When the car is overheating, if the fan is spinning slow that means the clutch is defective. 2. When overheating, touch the upper and lower radiator hose. If upper is cool, replace the thermostat. 3. when overheating, upper hose is hot but lower isn't. That means the radiator is clogged. 4. upper and lower hose are both cool, water pump is defective.
Vehicle engine overheating can be caused by several factors: Loss of coolant stuck or damaged thermostat plugged radiator insufficient air across the fan (failed radiator fan or radiator plugged by debris) failed water pump failed head gasket cracked head improper ignition timing (although rare and seldom causes severe overheating) Unfortunately, an overheating engine isn't always caused by the same thing.
The hot warning light is coming on in your 1998 Monte Carlo then your car briefly stopped you suppose it is the engine overheating what do you do next to fix it before it destroys your engine?
Why is my 97' firebird trans am overheating and how can i determine the cause of the overheating i have smoke coming out the tailpipe and the hood?
The smoke may be because you are overheating the engine. There are several causes for this. Check your fluid level in your radiator. Make sure it is full. Check your thermostat. Change it if it is weak. Check your radiator cap. This needs to be the correct one for the engine. Check all moving parts for your water system. Like the water pump, hoses and fittings.
It is very common for the impeller of a VW to break apart. The result is engine overheating and no heat. Usually, the the radiator remains full unless severe overheating causes a boilover and consequent loss of coolant. Also expect that the engine becomes hot yet radiator and heater hoses remain cool. If this happens, replace the water pump. It is usually convenient to replace the timing belt at this time.
there can be several reasons, however it is usually due to overheating and/or sudden cooling --- such as overheating the engine and then pouring cold water into the radiator, etc. Occasionally, the engine manufacturer may have a flaw in the head casting or too thin metal, etc that will cause it to crack too.
Overheating can be due to several factors. You could have a bad water pump. Check for slight steaming from the water pump, sometimes unnoticable if it's just the seal. Also, it could be a bad thermostat, which if it stays stuck shut can cause overheating. Another factor that is not the radiator is the most costliest of the repairs. If the head gasket blows, what happens is that the car will continue to overheat even…
No, if a fuse were to overheat it would blow. A shorted circuit can cause a fuse to blow. Yes. If the fuse for the electric cooling fan should blow, then the fan will not turn on and remove heat from the radiator at low speeds. At higher speeds, there will be enough air movement to cool the radiator. Also if your experiencing problems with your car overheating you should look into other causes, such…
