LeakCheck where the coolant lines go to the throttle body you may have a leak that only presents itself under pressure, as long as the coolant isn't being burnt in combustion in which case you may have a head gasket issue.

93 ED Falcon temp gauge goes up and down worse when cold seems to come down quicker when you gun the engine is the head gasket on the way out as advised or just a stuffed thermostat?

Your head gasket could be on the way out if there is oil in the coolant or it is consuming coolant. Replace the thermostat before you start suspecting the head gasket.

1990 Chevy corsica low coolant lite on coolant is full car not overheating an there is not a sensor in the coolant resovoir what should you do thanx?

There is a sensor, shaped like a smooth plastic finger that pokes up from below along the engine side of the resevoir. You should see a little "bumped out" place there. Don't replace it. It doesn't touch the coolant. It relies on a magnet on a float just on the other side of the plastic inside the resevoir. When the coolant is full and hot, try banging on the resevoir. Don't break it! It seems that whatever float system they are using sticks, regularly. Jake McCahn

Check the water pump

Why coolant leaks when engine is off but heat wont work when engine running?

The heat is not working because you are very low on coolant, probably because of the leak. Seems to me that it should leak worse when it is running, so I am going to assume you are talking about the coolant overflowing the reservoir, in which case goes back to you being low on coolant and the engine boiling the coolant.

Overheating problem with your 91 skylark 2.5l you have replaced the t-stat and flushed the coolant system that worked for about 6 months and it seems to come and go now does anyone have any idea how?

Water pump with a broken impeller blade. Possibly defective fan relay, fan motor, or fan clutch, depending on what it uses.

Why is my 1992 Toyota paseo overheating?

Cooling fans not coming on, thermostat stuck shut, low coolant, bad/plugged rad, water pump impeller not spinning, broken belt to water pump are places to start --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have replaced 5 thermostat's in my car in 3 years. I don't understand why it goes through them so fast but that always seems to be my problem.

It is not really stationary, it just appears to be. It is the star that appears to have least movement in the night sky. Stars that are near to it also don't seem to move much, just appearing to go around it. The further a star is from it, the more it seems to move.

What is wrong when low coolant light is on and the car seems to be overheating but the coolant tank is full on a my 1995 Pontiac grand am se Ijust replaced the radiator a week ago waterpunp a month?

maybe the thermostat You might have air stuck in the system causing the rad fluid to not flow properly, remove one of the heater core hoses from the heater core once the engine has gotten hot. The pressure will help help flush it. Put it back on and check the overflow tank after you start the engine again..

I just replace the water pump on a 1992 Jeep Cherokee Laredo but it still seems to over heat and coolant still blowing out everywhere how do i trouble shout this issue?

A thermostat stuck in the closed position is very common in overheating problems. Simple to check: Remove the radiator cap and start the engine. Look through he filler neck to see if you see the coolant circulate when the engine reaches normal operating temperature. If you don't see water circulate, more than likely the thermostat is stuck.

What is every possible cause of your 92 Camaro RS 305 TBI overheating?

I had this problem with mine. I had to hook the cooling fan up to a toggle switch, the previous owner didn't know what he was doing and messed up the wiring to the fan when he was working on it. I tapped into my radio hot wire and ran a toggle and live lead to the fan. Other reasons could be bad thermostat (doesn't open), coolant sensor not kicking in the fan, might even be bad coolant. I found my overheating problem, and this should ice the cake for overheating issues on this particular Camaro. If you have a good fan, coolant temp sensor, intake and head gaskets, coolant, hoses, no leaks and consistent fluent level, good heat, and everything seems absolutely fine, you might have a problem with the physical guage itself. When I replaced my dash light, i played with my temp guage needle while I had everything apart, and indeed I found a "rough" spot in the needle. What I did was pull the needle to its 'outmost' position where i felt "smoother" operation, and put it all back together. Since then, my car hasn't overheated at all (it never was overheating to begin with!) If your Camaro is overheating, I suggest getting a computer hooked up to your vehicle's computer and make sure your vehicle's computer says it's overheating. When I did that, I noticed my guage was off anywhere from 30-50 degrees. it never went over 200 degrees, yet the guage would say 250 sometimes. Luckily, playing with my temp guage needle fixed my issue, but I did fix a few leaks and put a much needed intake gasket on first. Watch out for the Orange antifreeze... it eats the gaskets away!!!

How can you see where the coolant leak is coming from It seems to me that its coming from between transmission and motor?

It is possible for coolant to leak out between the motor and transmission, if a freeze plug has been leaking. I had this problem on an old International Travelall I had. The motor will need to be pulled.
