Check to make sure your thermostat works right by monitoring the warming up of your engine. With a completely cold engine, start and run the engine for a few minutes, then put your hand on the top radiator hose to monitor if and when it gets warm as the thermostat opens more and more and note the gauge reading( if it works) the top radiator hose should be unbearably hot within 5-8 minutes. If the therm. opens right it should close right aswell, staying open a little while eventhough the radiator may have cooled may be what you are experiencing causing the rapid cooling and is nothing to worry about. The Hose should not get warm very soon after starting the engine. Regarding you gauge, lets take one step at a time, verify proper op. or the therm.

SOURCE: overheating after 45min-1 hour of driving

HI RickyGorbett! The first place that I would look is the Fan. Check the Fan Clutch and make sure that it is Engaging. Replace that Thermostat, You could actually have a Clogged Radiator, If you think it might be you will need to Remove the Radiator and take it to a Radiator Shop and Have it Rodded and Dipped. Let me know what you find out! Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help that I can get! Thanks!

SOURCE: Toyota Carina loss of power

lets start with the heating up problem!
replacing the thermostat and relay has nothing to do with it. common causes of heating up are improper valve setting timing, mismatch air-fuel ratio, worn-out piston rings, poor oil flow, poor radiator coolant flow.
i suppose you have changed your car motor oil. recheck if its on the right amount.


loss of power:
Common Causes
loose piston rings (causing insufficient compression: indications fog like smoke), air-fuel ratio incorrect, blockage in air intake.

check also for air on the fuel hoses if you experience often jurking problems regularly clean fuel strainers or filters.

The original oil used is 5W-30. I would use fully synthetic for maximum protection.
Yes the engine should reach just above normal before the fans switch on.

At what temperature should the radiator fan come on for a 2004 dodge stratus?


You may or may not have a problem with the fan. It should come on around 220 degrees or when the ac is running.
The temp on the gauge and the temp the computer sees can be 10 or 15 degrees different either way.

fans came late on those car,like 212 and second fan comes on at 224,you reprogram it to come a lot sooner,,other thing is there might be gunk inside the block,and coolant has hard time to pass through,and staying longer than enough in block temp goes high,even tough the radiator is doing it's job,it is just coming out block lot hotter than it suppose to be,and gauge read the block not the radiator

You should make sure there is no air in the cooling system-from a cold start, let it idle until the radiator fan kicks on with the surge tank cap off-make sure the tank is fully up to level at this point, that should eliminate air in the system as a cause. If you do not have a scanner that gives live readings, get one so you can monitor the engine temp-a factory gauge is not overly accurate. Your temp when warmed up, air off should go to about 212-215 and the radiator fan should then kick on-temp should drop to about 200 and the fan should shut off-this is normal.

Hi,
A/C increases Engine Temp in two ways.
1, extra 2-6hp load on engine.
2, hot condenser in front of radiator heating air going through cooling system.

A small difference in engine temp can be expected, but if the car is running hot get it sorted out.

Radiator fan won't kick in


On my slightly older Saab the radiator fan is electric and only is engaged when the temperature meter reaches 3/4 to the top.

When the car is in motion it will not spin since the air flowing through the radiator from the speed is sufficient to maintain normal engine temp. Only when the car is still it for a few minutes it may start to spin especially during summer, it will sometimes continue to spin even after the engine is turned off. This is normal behavior for this car.

To conclude, if your engine temp only goes up to half the gauge there would be no need for the fan to start spinning. If it doesn't engage during the conditions I described above there would be a problem that needs to be fixed.

How do you know if your engine is overheating? the coolant says 210 degrees wut do i do


When your engine is operating normally, the temp on the gauge should be between 190 and 225. The thermostat is set to open at 190 and this controls minimum engine temp. If you sit in traffic the temp will climb to 225 and then the cooling fan will begin to operate to make sure that you don't overheat.You know that water boils at 212 but you have to add 10 degrees for every pound of pressure the rad cap is set to. Also your coolant has antifreeze in it which raises the boiling point even more. A normal overheat condition of your engine would be 300 or more. Does this help?

The car is overheating water is backing into the overflow and bubbling this is a 2001 volkswagen Beetle 2.0


several possable problems, with car cooled down,start engine and turn on a/c, this should make your cooling fan come on, if it doesn't problem is in that circuit or fan itself. if the cooling fan comes on, watch temp gauge when it reaches half way up gauge carefully go touch upper and lower hoses,both should be warm. if one is still cool that is a flow problem and could be the thermostat or a failing water pump.

2000 Elantra Overheating


First when vehicle is cold like in the morning check and make sure that the vehicle has enough coolant/ antifreeze in radiator and reservoir. If coolant is need use a 50/50 mixture of water and antifreeze. You will need some time to do this let car run at idle until the temp guage is in the middle NOT+ normal operating temperature. At this point if the thermostat should be in the open position. Let vehicle run and check to make sure that radiator fan comes on. This should come on when guage is about midway/half way. If temperature rises above half going to h/hot and fan doesn't come on, you either have a BAD FAN BAD FAN SWITCH BAD FAN RELAY OR BLOWN FAN SWITCH FUSE. You will need to check all of the following I will help if its needed. If fan comes on and doesn't go off and vehicle continues to get hot even with fan running. Feel radiator hoses and see if the lower radiator hose is cool/cold. If it is you have thermostat that stuck closed. Replace thermostat and fix problem. If all the above is good and vehicle continues to over heat. THE BAD NEW IS THAT YOU MAY HAVE A BLOWN HEAD GASKET /CRACKED HEAD /BROKEN WATER JACKET. Basically you will need a HEAD JOB at least a head gasket. ONe tell tail sign of this is oil looking like milkshake/chocolate milk-a creamish while residue in oil or antifreeze. Contact if you need hel0p. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA
