If the electric cooling fan(s) are not coming on that may be the problem.

What does it mean when the left side of your radiator was smoking and it damaged the radiator cap when you took it off there was a lot of coolant in the radiator?

Your water pump might be broken or your thermostat might need to be replaced. You obviously don't have a leak so somehow the fluid isn't moving through the engine. If the thermostat is broken it will not let fluid into the engine and then the engine will overheat and the radiator will release smoke.


What would cause a 1996 BMW 320i convertible to overheat on a short journey and all the water bubble and steam?

my guess is the thermostat if you just replaced the thermostat then it might be an air pocket in the cooling system solved by taking the cap off the overflow tank squeezing the radiator hose going to the thermostat housing until the water pressure opens the hose in your hand this forces your thermostat open. if you decide to replace the thermostat yourself do the same as above to make sure all air is out of your cooling system.

Why does a ford temp overheat when you first start it?

Most of the time it is because the thermostat has gone bad and is not opening at the proper temperature. Cure: replace thermostat. If the thermostat has been replaced, flush the radiator. Buildup of residue in the bottom of the radiato0r will cause overheating, but it is maintained over heating, not temporary.

Low of coolant, defective water pump, clogged radiator interior or exterior, cooling fans not working, thermostat installed up side down, or you may have bought a bad, new, thermostat. It happens. Also running 100% water will cause it to overheat. Run a 50/50 mix.

Does that mean that you replaced the thermostat AND the sensor? If not, you really need to replace the thermostat.

Don't let it overheat or you might be buying a new engine.

Where is the Thermostat located on a 1994 Saturn sc?

The lower radiator hose goes from the bottom of the radiator to the engine block. On the engine side there will be a neck that comes off the block and the radiator hose is attached too it. Inside that neck is the thermostat and it can be replaced as a whole unit (the housing neck) or just the thermostat can be removed and replaced.
