It is overheating because the fan is not working. The fan may have a Defective fan thermal relay, bad fan, blown fuse, or disconnected or loose wiring.
Low coolant, inoperative water pump, head gasket failure, inoperative radiator fan, etc.
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.
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!
it is possible your radiator is clogged
Low coolant, inoperative radiator fan, stuck thermostat, slipping belt, failed water pump, etc.
You have a blown head gasket.
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.
when the enjine was turnoff sometime and then open the radiator and fill it
A faulty head gasket can cause a coolant loss which will cause an overheat. Exhaust getting into the water jacket will cause it to overheat very quickly. 5 minutes, 10 miles. With it cold, take the radiator cap off and start the car. Water should shoot out the radiator a couple of feet high.
In order of probablility: low coolant level, faulty thermostat, plugged radiator, damaged water pump, collapsing radiator hose.
Low coolant Bad radiator cap Dirty or plugged radiator Thermostat cooling fan not working Water pump Collapsing hoses
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.
first , the thermostat could be stuck. try replacing it. if your radiator OS losing coolant, there may be a leak in the radiator causing it to overheat, or the water pump could be bad. thermostat is the likely cause if it is not losing water.
An inoperative radiator fan is likely.An inoperative radiator fan is likely.
When there is no water in the radiator, a car can overheat. Serious damage can occur like a blown head gasket an warping if one drives for a long time without placing water in the radiator.
Running it while leaking can cause it to overheat repeatedly, which can cause thermostat damage , along with other problems.
no water in radiator? when is it over heating and in what conditions
Circulating water will not be sufficient and the car will overheat.
Bad radiator, gaskets, water pump, thermostat
several things 1. no radiator coolant 2. thermostat is bad 3. needs new water pump 4. make sure engine/radiator fan is running
yes. but there are several other things that can cause it to overheat. not enough coolant, bad belt, radiator blocked, bad thermostat,bad water pump to name a few.
A lack of water in your cooling system will cause your 2002 Pontiac Sunfire to overheat. A malfunctioning thermostat can also cause it to overheat.
the engine will overheat!for a start ,and the dash water temperature light will come on!there will be steam coming from the radiator...
Low coolant? Thermostat not opening? Radiator plugged? Radiator air flow restricted? Hoses collapsing? System airbound? Water pump not working (defective impellor)? Bad radiator cap?
faulty water pump, electric fan, or a clogged radiator> With dodge motors it is usually a clogged radiator. Drain it
