water pump might have broken.

i have this problem now, the radiator is full of antifreeze, but since water pump is not circling it around, the engine keeps overheating.

dont wait till your engine stucks, fix the problem as soon, as possible.

its cheaper than buying a new engine/car.

good luck!

Yes, a restricted or leaking radiator can cause the engine to overheat.

The spring on the bottom of a radiator cap will cause it to fail. If the spring does not work properly it can lead to pressure escaping from the radiator which can overheat the vehicle.

Bad thermostat, cap and radiator is a common cause.

Yes because it can overheat the curtains

Yes, if it is not holding pressure or is allowing a coolant leak.

A bad water pump or thermostat can cause an engine to overheat. A plugged (clogged) radiator or heater core may also cause an engine to overheat.

The radiator cooling fan is most likely not working.

Trouble code P0420 means:Catalyst system efficiency below threshold

It could be the radiator is clogged. The thermostat could be bad (prevents the coolant from circulating from radiator to engine block)

It will almost certainly cause your car to overheat, which can lead to costly damage if it cracks a head gasket! Put some water in your radiator!

Low coolant, stuck thermostat, failed waterpump, plugged radiator, inoperative radiator fans, etc.

Your car will leak anti-freeze/coolant. If you run out of fluid in your radiator then your car will overheat in a short period and cause much more damage. Fix your radiator!

Probably any normal thing like not enough Radiator Fluid or something is wrong with your radiator or a head gasket leak could cause the radiator fluid loss. Does this Help?

Lack of coolant in the radiator. Fan not working. Not enough oil.

The Mercury Villager and Nissan Quest are basically the same vehicle. The radiator is cooled by an electric fan and thermostat. If either of these are malfuntioning, that could be the cause. Otherwise, all of the normal things such as low coolant, bad water pump, clogged radiator, bad radiator hoses, bad thermostat,and incorrect timing could all cause the engine to overheat.

it is possible for heat from combustion to cause an engine to overheat quickly depending on where the gasket is blown, but i would look for a lack of coolant circulation first. if your coolant is not getting out of the motor and into the radiator it will overheat very quickly.

The most likely cause is an inoperative radiator fan.

No it is not. It could be a problem with the radiator, a radiator hose or a water pump. In any situation, it could cause the motor to overheat and damage it severely.

Having a leak in a radiator hose will have no effect on the engine running or not. However, in time the hose leak will cause the level of the coolant in the radiator to drop below a critical level and the engine will overheat.

A Nissan Frontier may be overheating because the radiator is cracked. A thermostat failure can also cause it to overheat.

have you flushed your radiator or changed the thermostat it could be stuck

low coolant ,froze thermostat ,leaks in hoses ,radiator

Yes---after air goes thru condensor,it is warmer than if ac is off. Clean the radiator
