If by water you mean engine coolant, yes. Loss of coolant, antifreeze, is a major cause of overheating.

Does the engine cooling fan come on at 230 degrees and turn off at 190 degrees? You could have a bad cooling fan, relay or sensor problem. If all of these check out you need to check for leaks and repair them. Also a stuck thermostat can be the bad apple.

First check the truck for coolant leaks, make sure the coolant level is o.k. If it is there could be a blockage in the radiator or hoses if you have no idea what you are doing take it to an automotive repair facility an overheat could cause severe engine damage

No, it will not cause oil leaks.

the first thing i would look at is the thermostat if its not opening and closing at the right time this will cause your enginr to overheat.

Oil/antifreeze mix is usually caused by head gasket leaks or valve cover gasket leaks.

If the intake manifold gasket has failed then it can cause many issues. Air leaks, known as vacuum leaks, will cause an erratic idle, stalling, and fuel problems.

Hose going from engine to heater core may have burst. Check all your coolant hoses for leaks.

User Avatar

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

There are a few reasons why a 1992 Jeep Wrangler 2.4 liter would overheat. Some of the reasons are low antifreeze levels, radiator leaks, or fan malfunction.

There are several things that can cause your 1992 Mitsubishi Eclipse to overheat. A malfunctioning water pump or a blown head gasket should be the next things that are checked.

There wont be any leaks, the car wont overheat and it will stay in the normal operating temperatures.

check radiator for small leaks or cooling lines which would most definitely cause it 2 steam when running after awhile

If you live in the RV full-time, then a comprehensive policy with full water damage coverage should be considered. In fact, it's a great idea. If the RV is only used now and then, you may not need water damage coverage outside your regular policy. Older RVs often need more water damage coverage due to wear and tear. Most RV coverage will not cover maintenance related leaks therefore use RV Roof Magic and be hassle free.

Exhaust leaks close to the engine.

Oil leaks will not cause an engine to heat or to seize. A lack of oil will cause it to get hot and seize which is caused by not checking the oil level and adding as necessary to keep it full. As long as the engine has the proper amount of oil it will run just fine. The leaks may cause a mess, waste of oil and money, but they will cause no damage to the engine.

If it has an electric fan, it could be malfunctioning.Or it could be the thermostat.lastly ,it could be a leaky or blown headgasket.

User Avatar

Vacuum leaks will cause that. Check the PCV valve and all hose coming from it. They are known for cracking. Also check the one behind the intake. Hope this helps.

It means you should check the level of brake fluid, and /or leaks in the system.
