start by cheking your hoses,specially the bottom hose. feel it for any unusual bulges or if it feels funny replace it. if the hoses are ok make sure that the thermostat is not malfuntioning, and that is the same rating as your vehicle requires. finally have your system flushed.

No thermostat, no coolant, no waterpump. Basically you have no coolant circulating.

Yes it can. A faulty thermostat can cause overheating which will cause coolant to be pushed out of the system.

Low coolant, bad coolant tank cap, stuck thermostat, or clogged coolant line.

Low coolant? Thermostat not opening? Water pump not circulating coolant?

If it's overheating, it cold be thermostat, radiator or possibly other problems. If it's not overheating it could be the coolant level sensor.

2 things I can think of which need to be checked: your coolant and your thermostat.

User Avatar

Could be from a variety of things. Commonly overheating occurs when the car is low on coolant, broke thermostat or the radiator needs repairs.

Thermostat, water pump, radiator cap, headgasket, low coolant.

A thermostat that is stuck in the closed position is a very common cause of overheating. A new thermostat should be installed every time the coolant is changed.

If the temp gauge reads normal and the engine is not overheating, the thermostat is doing its job. The thermostat maintains the coolant temp by opening and closing allowing the coolant to flow or not to flow. When it is closed the coolant doesn't circulate.

If the engine is overheating, the thermostat is stuck closed. If the heater is not putting out enough hot air the thermostat is stuck open. Change the thermostat as a normal part of maintenance when changing coolant.

your thermostat is closed. needs to be replaced. inexpensive part but can save your engine from overheating.

No coolant Thermostat not opening Defective temperature sensor

could be your thermostat or you have no antifreeze coolant or your water pump is going bad

Most common cause for overheating is low coolant, check and make sure your coolant is full when engine is cold. If coolant is full, the thermostat may be bad. Most thermostats open between 180 and 210 degrees if it gets higher than that and coolant is full I would replace the thermostat because it's a cheap repair, usually under $10 for the part. The thermostat is located in the housing of the engine where the upper radiator hose goes in. If overheating continues, you may have a bad water pump or plugged radiator.

Either the thermostat is stuck shut of the water pump is bad. Make sure that the coolant is full as well, then check the thermostat and pump to see why the coolant isn't flowing.
