Why does the engine overheat?

AnswerBecause the engine cooling fan does not work properly or does not work at all.There are many reasons which may cause Engine overheat. the above is also one of them.Loss of coolantloss of coolant because coolant leaks from anywhere on the cooling system.Loss of coolant because radiator cap is broken and will cause overheat.Loss of coolant because radiator cap pressure is less than the required.Loss of coolant because compression leak in to the cooling system.Radiator internally blocked. (Heat exchanger blocked, if equipped)Radiator externally blocked. (Air flow blocked)Engine Overloaded (engine can be overloaded because of loss of power due to malfunction of some parts, in this case there must have other symptoms).Thermostat does not direct water circulation to the Heat Exchanger.Engine mechanical condition is not good (Power balance)Engine ignition timing is retarded.After a repair Engine started to overheat.(AC or Radiator fan is rotating wrong direction, polarity changed)

Why is my car overheating but the radiator stays cool?

Either the radiator is blocked, or the thermostat is stuck closed, or the water pump has failed.or it just needs water.

Low coolant, stuck thermostat, blocked hoses.

What would cause a Vauxhall Frontera to over heat?

Overeheating is usually caused by a bad thermostat, blocked radiator or leaking headgasket.

You changed the thermostat in your car and temp was ok for a few hours and started to go high again?

Assuming fluid is not lost, and thermostat is not sticking, and water pump is working, and radiator not blocked, must be electric fan not cutting in. I think its switched on by a sensor on the block. Check cut in of electric fan. IF thats working, must be blocked or ineffective radiator.

If a 1998 Mazda 626 will start and run for a little while but then overheat and die and you have changed the cooling fan and the transmission has been checked what else can it be?

It could be any number of things, but I'd check for bad fan relay or fuse, sticking thermostat, blocked radiator or blown head gasket.

How do you know of your radiator is blocked?

Checking your radiator always

Why would a Chevy silverado 2500 HD 4 wheel drive overheat while pulling a trailer up a hill you have replaced the thermostat and had the cooling system flushed?

Fan clutch faulty. Fan shroud missing or broken. Radiator air flow may be blocked from outside with debris (leaves and stuff).

What is wrong with a 95 Cavalier Dec that runs hot but will cool down if you put the heater to hot?

Have you checked the thermostat... Sound like a blocked radiator .................PS

Your 1993 Pontiac sunbird with a 2L 4 has been overheating you fixed all the leaks and replaced the radiator fan motorbut the fan still doesnt come on Im guessing this is most likely the radiato?

If you have any questions, pull both radiator hoses and run water into one end. If you can get water to flow as fast as the hose can send it, you probably don't have a blocked heater. Also check the thermostat. A stuck thermostat can cause an engine to overheat. An easy check on a thermostat is to drop it in a pan of water then bring the pan to boiling. The thermostat should open a little before the pan starts to boil

MY Honda civic 1993 DX sometimes heats up when im driving and its hot outside then the engine light well come on is that normal?

No, it is not. It indicates that there is something wrong with the engine's cooling system. A car, even one as old as a 1993 model, should not overheat even in very hot weather. You should check that there is enough coolant in the system, and that the radiator cap is holding pressure properly. Replacing the radiator cap is a good first step, and should be relatively inexpensive ($10 at an auto parts store). You may also need to get a garage to check the thermostat and the radiator, to make sure that the thermostat is working and the radiator is not blocked.

What can cause over heating?

Thermostat, blocked radiator, leaking hoses, rusted impellers on the water pump and the worst possibility, a leaking head gasket/cracked head.

What make your car run hot?

All sorts of thing can.. Low oil, low coolant, blocked radiator, stuck thermostat, running too lean on fuel... If it just suddenly started to do it and the levels are ok then check the thermostat.

How do you fix blocked radiator?

No water goes through radiator hose is this water pump failure?

Or, if everything else is operating properly, it could be the thermostat or a blocked radiator, but I'd focus on the thermostat first. Be certain that the engine is at normal operating temperature when looking to see if coolant is circulating. A properly operating thermostat will prevent the circulation of coolant while engine temperatures are below operating temperature.
