Hi, Ashley_hame and the usual suspects are:
1. Low coolant level.
2. Restricted radiator air flow.
3. Faulty thermostat.
4. Coolant pump or fans inoperative.
5. Vent hose crimped.
6. Air in the coolant and needs bleeding.
7. Engine idling too long or bike moving too slow.
8. Coolant too old needs to be replaced.
9. Faulty temperature sensor, wiring or connector.
10. Radiator veins clogged or corroded needs repair
11. Ignition timing retarded.

2002 Lincoln Continental - overheats


have a compression test done to check for head gaskets/cracks. check thermostat fitted correctly. If there is a viscous fan hub then replace it. if the bottom hose stays cool that indicates a blockage and that if the radiator is off the shelf new points to a thermostat fitted the wrong way . over haeting at lights goin slow or working at high rpms while loaded points to the fan hub. If electric fans then it points to the fact that they are not coming on. check ignition timing as a spark after TDC will cause overheating.. If at speed it over heats then check over drive operation as over reving the engine will also over heat the engine.

No fan when ac kicks on Ihave a eb15b funace with a coleman ac


The heat will normally use a low speed on the fan, & the AC along with the fan switch on the thermostat will use the high speed. The thermostat turns that high speed on when there is a call for cooling & is the same switch if you were to manually turn the fan from auto to on. Try turning the fan on @ the thermostat. If it works, then replace your thermostat. If it doesn't, it could be a bad fan speed, a bad fan relay on a control board or external relay, or a loose or broken green thermostat wire.

Bryant programmable thermostat doesnt keep the temp have to put it on fan instead of auto


My guess is that you have gas heat. If this is the case, sounds to me like your main control board or depending on age of furnace, fan controller is not working. With gas furnaces, it utilizes 2 fan speeds. High for cooling, & Low for heating. Your thermostat only controls the High speed - switches when you turn your fan on & when there is a call for cooling. The only other thing I can think of is it is possible that the Low speed windings on the blower motor are open causing it to not turn on. Most motors have 3 to 4 speeds & only 2 are used. Switch the heat motor wires in the furnace (on the control board) with one that is on a spare terminal.

I have replaced my 92 toyota pickup with new thermostat, heads, water pump,and radiator and it is still getting hot


When they come into my shop like this I check several things.First I check with a temperature gun whether it is actually getting hot( a gauge fault)Maybe your local garage may have one and check for you.If it is heating, as it approaches the fan cut in speed I check for operation of the fan.Electric fans usually can be tested by removing plug near thermostat housing or grounding this plug.it should turn on.If you have a viscous fan type(it is bolted to the front of the water pump and free wheels).This should begin to spin faster as the heats causes the viscous to bind.On this type you should feel the heat getting pulled off the radiator and fanning back past the engine and underneath the vehicle.Also ensure if there is a shroud that encompasses the fan and the radiator.Without this on, certain models can not draw heat off the radiator effectively.
Note also if you have air conditionally this should either turn on the electric fan also or switch on an auxillary fan located either beside it or behind the grille.
The fourth item checked is the lower radiator hose.Ensure as holding the revs at cruise speed that it doesnt flatten closed.This can be caused by going soft,or a restriction in the cooling system circuit,but you have indicated that the radiator has been replaced(I am assuming it is a new one)
Hope this helps or get back with your findings and we will work further on it.

Audi 80, 1992, fan not coming on.


Have you tried a fan relay?
I'm thinking there is a coolant sensor AND a fan sensor on that model.

Goodman Air Handler motor will not turn off.


Look at your Thermostat wiring.
If there is a green wire going to the "G" terminal, disconnect it.

If it stops running, you have a bad T-stat.

If it keeps running, you either have a stuck fan relay or a low voltage control wiring malfunction.
Those are usually related to one of the safety switches having problems.

If green is not going to G, let me know, and we will determine which one is indeed the fan wire and go from there.

Remember, when you rate the solution, it closes further dialog, so only rate when you are satisfied with the discusion.

Thanks for visiting FIXYA!

1998 jaguar xj8 overheating.


The early XJ8s were designed to operate as you describe, only kicking the fans in with the AC which is fine when the cars warming up (in fact it helps the car warm up faster & use less fuel), however, Jaguar realised in some climates this was causing overheating, later ones (99my on) operate constantly with the ignition on at slow speed & speed up if it detects it needs to.

This is a complex 2 relay system with alot of wiring that goes into the ECU & cant easily be retrofitted to your one.

I`d advise you to take the car to a good auto electrician & ask him to fit a manual switch on the dash with a relay to the fans so you can turn it on manually when its warmed up (if he can fit a slow speed relay with a resistor as well as a full power one, all the better, as you dont want to over cool either).

I`d also advise you to get the thermostat changed every year & the water pump to be upgraded to the current spec one, as these are both known issues that occur & also cause overheating.

Best of luck!
