Check electric ccoling fan for proper operation per your owners manual. It sound like the cooling fan(s) not working.

Any coolant leak can cause an overheat.Any coolant leak can cause an overheat.

There could be many reasons. Not enough coolant or bad flow, faulty thermostat, low oil. If the coolant freezes then it will overheat. If your car continues to overheat then you should have the coolant flushed and thermostat replaced.

There many other reasons for a vehicle to overheat besides thermostat and radiator cap. one example is retarded ignition timing.

Babies can overheat quickly in this weather. If you overheat the oil, it will burn. Be sure that there's enough coolant in the radiator so that it doesn't overheat.

drive it without coolant

Yes you can. A cracked block does not necessarily mean the car will overheat. If a block is cracked at a coolant jacket then coolant will leak out and the car will overheat if the leak is bad enough. If the leak is not very major or if the crack is at a point that does not have a coolant jacket then it will not overheat. A cracked block could leak oil, compressed air/fuel, coolant, or nothing at all and still be cracked. -R. Mesyef

Yes, low coolant will cause it to overheat without the AC; that is not the only reason that will cause overheating however.

You will see coolant pouring from it and your car will overheat

Yes! if you have a cracked head chances are your oil and coolant are mixing together and coolant and or oil is leaking out causing the vehicle to overheat... if you have a cracked head fix it! do not drive the vehicle

A leaking heater core will cause the engine to overheat because the coolant is leaking out.

Where is it? Coolant is under 17-21 pounds of pressure be more specific

Your engine is too hot.

Could be a plugged or restricted radiator Low coolant? Water pump not circulating coolant?

yes, especially if the leak is causing coolant to leak, you can run out of coolant. then overheat.

you need to add coolant to the coolant resevoir. coolant is antifreeze. if you dont have enough in your car you can overheat and damage your engine.

It is not boiling away. I may be going into your oil or on the ground, but boiling away is not an option.

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.

Its prob the radiator fan. Or you are out of coolant.

Yes, it controls the coolant flow around the engine block, without coolant the engine would overheat.

If coolant is up to proper level and cooling fans are working - should not overheat
