Thermostats go bad everyonce in a while. To check feel upper hose ( PROTECT HANDS AND FACE) see if water is flowing when car is hot, it not easily replace cheap thremostat, if water is flowing could be water pump. Leave this procedure to mechanically inclinded friends or shop.

Why do your car overheat when you cut the heat off?

There is something wrong with your radiator that it is not cooling your engine coolant. The heater has a little rad in it that sends heat to the cabin and thereby cooling the engine coolant also. If you stop the heat then your engine returns to overheating. Get this fixed or engine replacement will be in your future.

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 does my 1999 Oldsmobile Alero over heat?

As with any car, low coolant will cause this car to overheat. Common areas of coolant lose are the water pump or intake manifold gaskets. If the coolant is full, then another common problem is blown headgaskets- especially the rear head. A blown headgasket introduced compression into the cooling system causing air pocket / bubbles. This will cause an overheat.- TechJK -----------------------------------------------------------
