Flush and clean the heater core. Also check your rad cap and maybe change the thermostat

Three are other factors. One situation I've come across over the years is the elctric fan that cools the radiator starts to wear which in turn causes it to stick. This fan due to it's location takes a real beating. Splashing, dust, bugs, and everything else. With a duel fan system, it can be one or both. Start your car let it warm up and observe the fan/s operation. If not this I would look into the relay, which is the second leading cause of overheating in my experiences.

Your water pump may be failing. If it fails (pump bearings, clogs, etc)your thermostast temp goes up because coolant in the water jackets of the engine are being heated to boiling, but not being pumped through the rad to cool. Also check the tightness of your belts, if they are loose, your water pump may not work well. Have you added water without adding coolant? Try a hydrometer and check the strength of your rad fluid.

Possible that head gasket could be bad. If you've done other things and still overheating. If your engine has got very hot in the past this could be your problem.With a aluminum head and cast iorn block these head gaskets can be blown very eaisly. If you run with this condition very long head damage will eventually occur.

Why a cavalier overheat?

A car can overheat for several reasons. You may need to replace your water pump. You may have a leak in the radiator itself. You may need to add more 50/50 mix of radiator fluid and water to your car. You could also have leaks or holes in the radiator hoses. You may also need a new cooling fan for the radiator.

Why is my 1993 Toyota tercel leaking green coolant?

most of the time this is because your radiator has sprung a leak. it can also be because your coolant hoses are corroded and need replacing. check all of the coolant lines coming from the radiator and that they are in good condition and properly attached to there flanges. then check the radiator for any visible signs of corrosion or holes. sometimes your water pump can experience wear and eventualy begin leaking through a small hole under it. Most of the time after running the engine you can take a flashlight and go under the car and see where the coolant is leaking from. follow any drips or liquid trails. if its a hose, simply replace it. if its your water pump, you can replace it or have it replaced. if its coming from a break in your radiator it is best to replace it. using chemicals to stop radiator leaks is a bad idea. auto parts stores will recommend it for quick fixes but do not use these chemicals. they plug up the holes for a temporary fix but also add debris to your coolant wich can build up in un wanted areas imagine if you started bleeding and you injected a clotting agent into your blood to stop it. you would most likely die. The best fix for this is to install a new radiator all together. they are in-expensive if you order them online.

How do you change coolant in a 1998 Concorde?

there is a drain cock located on the radiator, it is on the bottom passenger side facing inside the engine bay. looking under the car below the radiator you will see holes on each side of the car (where the radiator sits) that is where the coolant will come out (pass. side) after draining you will need to get the air out of the system. on the top of the motor directly behind the water pump housing there is a spout with a 10 mm nut, loosen this and fill coolant in reservoir until water comes out of the spout. close spout and fill to line in reservoir. do this with the vehicle off so the water pump isn't on and the car doesn't overheat. good luck..

Will covering an alternator with aluminum foil cause any damage to the alternator?

Yes it could, a alternator has air passages in its case to allow for cooling. If those holes are blocked the alt. could overheat and fail.

Is comfort ironing water demineralized and suitable for car coolant mixing?

The reason you buy water for you iron, is that you do not want calcium and iron inside your iron, as these deposits will plug the holes in the iron. Similarly calcium and iron inside your radiator wil cause the holes to plug up and stop the flow inside your radiator. You can buy demineralized water or use the old way of clean rain water.

What might be wrong with a 1993 Jeep Cherokee Sport if when it starts to overheat coolant pours from the water pump and the plastic reservoir never gets low?

sounds like the water pump is bad. there are 2 holes on the water pump. top and bottom. when it goes bad water leaks out of either hole, usally the bottom hole. since it leaks, the radiator cant hold pressure and it over heats. the resivor is where the coolent would go if the coolent over heated and when the coolent cooled it would get sucked back out in to the radiator again. the radiator has to build up pressure to open the spring in the cap to cause that coolent to release. since there is no pressure the resivor will always stay the same.

1995 dodge Dakota trasmision lines leak after replacing radiator how do you stop this are the o rings in end bad?

I take it hat the lines are leaking at the radiator. Check the flares on the inside of the flare nut. Use tread sealer on the treads. Look for any cracks or pin holes in the lines. Worse thing you may of cross threaded when installing the lines to radiator.

Why is your 1990 Honda Civic hatchback overheating?

My 1990 Honda Civic Hatchback had a similar problem where it overheated on a seemingly random basis. I first replaced the thermostat, but that did not fix the problem. Then I replaced the water pump, again with no positive result. Finally, I replaced the radiator, which fixed the problem. As it turned out, the radiator had pinhole leaks that caused the problem. Also, when it comes to a leaking radiator, I do not suggest the 'quick fix' of additives to the radiator water that plug holes and stop leaks. These additives can cause more problems than they resolve. The best solution is to replace the radiator.

How do you replace the radiator on a 1998 Malibu?

on the bottom of the radiator there is a plastic mount with two bolts on each side, removing them can be difficult if they are at all corroded. try not to break them when removing them, otherwise you will have to re-drill the holes and replace them with some bolts and nuts which is very time consuming. other than that just remove all hoses and transmission lines attached to the radiator and it should come right out.
