I'm not a mechanic but, I had to replace my radiator to fix the overheating problem on my 1994. That was the last thing I replaced after replacing the water pump, thermostat, and replaced my fan with a clutch fan. have not had anymore problems with it overheating once the radiator was replaced. Flush the coolant first then replace the radiator. Hope this helps.
Is your fan coming on?
Blown head gastet, radiator leaking, thermostat needs to be replaced Blown head gastet, radiator leaking, thermostat needs to be replaced
IF IT WAS NOT OVERHEATING BEFORE THE HOSE WAS REPLACED -- MORE THAN LIKELY YOU HAVE AIR POCKETS TRAPPED IN YOUR COOLING SYSTEM
Inoperative radiator fans, bad water pump, failed headgasket?
Water pump defective.
your thermostat is closed. needs to be replaced. inexpensive part but can save your engine from overheating.
If you have replaced the water pump then flush the radiator with CLR also check to see if the fan is working properly.
Reasons your 1999 Honda Accord is overheating can include a leak in the water hose, a blown head gasket, or the radiator cap needs to be replaced.
I had replaced the water pump and radiator. This had continued to overheat but not as bad. After replacing the head gasket it was finally fixed. I was able to answer my own question only after replacement.
my niece's was overheating I replaced the radiator cap and it hasn't happened since FYI
radiator fan, head gasket,
possiable head gasket
can the gasket go bad behind the water pump houseing
After 10 years radiator may be plugged or restricted - try to flush or boil out May need replacement
Could be a collapsed lower radiator hose, perhaps a bad thermostat.
Well ive had the same priblem. We have got new radiator and cap. Then replaced thermostat then water pump. No more problems.
The most common cause of overheating is a thermostat stuck in the closed position. Other causes of overheating could be a clogged radiator, faulty water pump, a faulty radiator fan relay, a faulty radiator fan motor, no coolant or low coolant level.
replace ur radiator
Replace the Thermostat, and bleed all air from the cooling system.
the radiator was replaced and the fluids are still evaporating or leaking out somehow. what other options could be wrong with the car overheating?
Ingeneral, the fan will run only if the temperature of the radiator is above the normal range. If the fan is running, then the radiator must be over temp unless the radiator fan thermostat or it's relay is defective. If the radiator truly is over temp then you have a larger over-heating problem You state the thermostat was replaced. if you replaced the fan thermostat then either the radiator really is over temp and it is doing what it should, or there is a problem with the thermostat-fan relay or switch. If you replaced the engine thermostat that controls the flow of coolent between the engine and the radiator, then that probably wasn't your problem and you should look elsewhere for an overheating cause. I would start by determining if the engine actually is overheating or not. If it is, I would look for coolent system problems like the engine thermostat (if you didn't replace it already), water pump, leaks, scale build up in the radiator, or blockages in the system. If the engine isn't overheating then I would consentrate on the fan, fan thermostat and relays.
Low coolant level? System airbound? Cooling fan not working? Radiator plugged or restricted? Water pump not circulating coolant? Defective radiator cap?
A bad radiator cap needs to be replaced as soon as possible. Fluid can leak out causing the car to overheat. Constant overheating can lead to expensive repairs. The average radiator cap costs less than $10.00, so it's worth the investment.
Why dose my 232i overheating
