MrUrenov: Hi there, my problem is on a 2002 civic ex overheated when I got to traffic
bumper to bumper after driving at freeway speed . Temperature went all the
way up, checked the coolant in reservoir was full but not hot, radiator was
low in coolant but I'm wondering why the coolant from reservoir didn't
transfer to the radiator
Declan Meaney: hi,I have an overheating problem, my car has had a new fan a new thermostat
no leaks externally and I am not losing any coolant, also my heaters are
blowing cold..... takes about half hr of the engine running from cold to
run up to the red.....
I am not driving it this happens just sitting on my drive...please
Jong Nicol: hello all, i'm having heater trouble about my Pontiac Montana. I tried to
drive this Montana van for about 30minutes up to an hour and even more just
to reach the normal operating temperature.. I observed the temperature
gauge it reached the normal operating temperature but STILL NO HOT AIR is
coming out both in front and rear vents (always cold air). The heater and
fan control knob is pointed to high already. No engine overheat
temperature, I checked the radiator fan it runs well when required. The
radiator coolant level is okay and the overflow tank as well. I already did
coolant bleeding or burping several times but still no hot air. Your help
or any suggestions is highly appreciated.
Frankie Soto: My problem is the following which is I have no leaks !, although i replaced
the radiator but every two days i'm adding coolant to the radiator and it's
just evaperating. I plan to change the hoses and also i noticed that the
presure gage is not installed. HELP !!!
Christopher Pausz: You explain these things very well. Thanks for the info
Paolo Panetta: very helpful information, thanks
Indo Lanka: My car overheated (running with a/c and lights on after driving about
100km's) and cut off the engine on the freeway. Now the engine light comes
on and cannot drive it for more than 10 min and heats up like a hell. Any
advice with out finding the codes or is there any way of finding trouble
codes manually on this vehicle. Searched everywhere could not find for this
soundspur: Thanks for video which helps. Trying to first time diagnose my overheating
99 Civic Can’t make a wrong diagnosis as were in mid-winter,& I’m not all
that capable. I have tools but no pressure testers etc Symptoms: No heating
inside car:.Radiator fan never kicks in. After topping right up, radiator
coolant leaks out for a minute or so then stops. From cold Temp gauge hits
the red in about 6 minutes. So I do short trips as I need to! H/Gasket
seems OK and no oil & water mixed. Gut feeling is it's the radiator and I
should change it! Or could something else -thermostat have triggered or
contributed? Can 1 problem trigger another?
Savannah Soto: hi i have a 2000 chevy impala my car would over heat after 8 or 10 mins of
driving it it would go all the way to the red part and start to shake and
make shaking noise..my steering wheel and dashboard area would shake and
than the car would start to go slow like 20 miles no matter how hard i
press the gas than the meter would go back up and the car would be fine
and drive normal speed and than go back down red and do the same thing
...... do you think u might know the problem??
YOURmainCHANNEL: Have a Integra blows hot air then goes cold/heater .. also hoes to over
heat by then goes back down. My upper hose is hot but lower hose
cold/radiator... 260k change thermostat and radiator plus coolant Neva
change the water pump car was used but iguess those symptoms of a bad water
blacktai28: I have a 1995 caddy sadan deVille telling me engine coolant hot idol engine
and it's constantly getting hot any tips on how to fix this Thanks
North Perth Mechanics: If symptoms occur, don't hesitate to go to your nearest car repair shop to
avoid accident. Thanks for the tips. Good job!
Shane Blandford-Scherr: My sister drives a 1985 Toyota tercel and the guage rises up to just unnder
the H on and off the red line, the single electric fan works and the
raddiator is full/doesn't leak it is the factory radiator and hoses though
not sure if that changes things have any idea what's wrong? Also I took out
the thermostat completely for a day then re installed it and so no
difference without it,
Chas onay: Hi! I warmed my car up for about 20 to 30 minutes on a Monday below 0
degree weather (Chicago). Soon after, the gauge on the dashboard starts to
rise near the H with cold air blowing out of the vents instead of heat. The
coolant in the reservoir is kind of slushy due to the freezing weather
still. Can this be a thermostat gone bad (thermostat stuck closed)? Mind
you, i just replaced a thermostat a month ago. I also blew a head gasket
afterwards and gotten all of that repaired two weeks ago. My second
question is was my mechanic suppose to change the thermostat as well after
installing a new head and head gaskets? Now Sunday before the overheating
occurred, my car was operating normally, a lot of heat blowing and the
gauge (car) is at the normal temperature. I can;t afford another head and
head gasket, so i did not move my car by any means. Please help me!!!!!!!!
Allan A: awesome great help thanks
AMOS MOSES: QUESTION.....if i take off a radiator hose and then start the car (92

Shaundrika Shinn: Hello, I have a 2000 maxima the temp gauge was going up as if it was
overheating but no smoke at all. The thermostat and water pump was just

Norlistapes7: Hey Trust i got a question,my 2000 Chevy Impala overheats,i have had the
coolant switch,radiator and thermostat replaced and there are no air
bubbles running through the system and i've ruled out the head gasket as
there is no leak in the block the car runs better but the temp still climbs
when i'm idled and the low coolant sign comes on periodically what's wrong?
Oh, only one fan works on my duel system..
Danny S: I have a kia sedona 2004. Radiator hose blew out on a highway then it
overheated the engine. Engine doesn't start any more does it mean I have to
change the engine or is the a chance to save it nay be there is a part to
Vijay Chandrashekar: Wonderful guidance. thank you so much. appreciate it sir. i detected myself

you so much
enrique mora: my truck is over heating on freeway
TariQ Alaa: I have a 84' Mercedes 190E and i was just wondering at which temperature
should i start to worry about overheating? When the car is idled in traffic
it reaches up to 100C , Other than that its mostly at 80 or slightly below
or up. Should i be worried?
7SickoZ: Have a question if someone can help me with,
Is the Hose running from the engine to the collant reservior supposed to
have fluid in it when the car is off and engine is cold?
allsaw31: 06 Chevy equinox has an overheating problem. Mechanic replaced the radiator
but now says that car had a blown head gasket. Coolant/water still leaks
from the overflow hose and no heat in car.
DION BROWN: HELLO... have a question Monday my car was over heating put antifreeze in
it the antifreeze start to boil so I waited until the next day to drive my
car... drove it to the oil place to see why the antifreeze was boiling...
the man told me to get it flush but he didn't wanna do that cause he said
something about moist being in my oil so when he pop the hood something was
steaming and leaking the man said it had to be antifreeze took it to the
shop... the man said that it was my y pipe it had burst do to rust... Do
have to take the trans out to replace the pipe that was what I was...
doesn't sound right to me.... have Suzuki Forenza 04 and also my car was
blewing out white smoke from the tailpipe... he said its not a head gasket
could a y pipe cause a car to over heat and make the antifreeze boil
Marquise Callaway: I have a 99 Nissan Maxima, I really don't know much about cars but recently
my car has been overheating so I thought I just needed antifreeze but I
have to add antifreeze almost every week and it still over heats I think
there's a leak in the radiator I also found a hole in the radiator I have
now on the upper plastic that smoke comes out of which I think helps the
car overheat as well. Please help.
Murad Sen: Hi, I have a '02 Jetta. It started to overheat , it usually happens when i
am driving on freeway and it also happens after some time when i am driving
on regular road. The radiator hose gets hot so i think that it is not a
water pump problem but motor still feels cool when the gauge needle starts
to go over 190.Can be the head gasket ?
ferne wilkinson: I have a 2002 jeep cheeroke that overheated. And put antifreeze back into
it and still overheard and put antifreeze bfn into over flow jug what
should I do help pleasand there is no antifreeze in my oil and still
Brooke S.: Question:[04 Monte Carlo] I have replaced my thermostat (& the housing),
the intake gaskets, and bled the coolant system several times and my car is
still overheating and the heat is not working. Everytime it overheats the
antifreeze is full (no leak anywhere).. could it possibly be the water
Israel Perez: Question. My car gets to 3/4 hot ONLY when going uphill. I can push the
hard as hard as I want either on the freeway or the road. I don't get why
it would do that? The temp stays right below the middle mark. Also i don't
know if this is relevant, in cold mornings it has low idle. And when it hot
it goes away. 95 eclipse Gst . Thank you
phrozen17: First of all I think it's awesome that you actually respond to peoples
question on youtube. My cabin heat randomly turns off and immediately the
temp starts to skyrocket, often the heat will then randomly start again and
the temp will drop back to normal range. It once overheated into the red,
when I looked under the hood, all the rad fluid was in the overflow tank. I
took off the cap, it flowed back into the rad. I changed the rad cap,
wasn't that. Also the temp gauge is jumping around as it begins to overheat
and then returns to normal. Any ideas?
YOURmainCHANNEL: Thanx alot for your reply sir... I hope is not the water pump got a $550
quote without them even looking at it & if its just air bubble? Stopping
the flow then it should be a easy fix correct?.. and by the way I haved
topped the radiator and had to refill the reservoir since it kept going
emty/weird... Hope there's no leak around the pump causing it...that's my
thoughs... Never had to experience this its new to me..
shelsi morse: Hi I have '99 ford Taurus and am wondering why my engine is knocking and
coolant is leaking
Neal Stevens: HI, about 2 months ago my temp gauge would read that my car was overheating
and I had to replace the coolant temperature sensor. This fixed my problem
but today my car overheated and I had to add coolant. After I added the
coolant it didnt leak out but was bubbling in the reservoir. Any insight
what could be causing this? I haven't tried to drive it after this happened
but I'm sure there is something that needs to be fixed and wondering where
to look. Thanks in advance!
Amouzou Smith: Hi my car is overheating I added a cooling but it can't stayed for 5 minute
and I don't see any cooling on the ground, what is that problem thank you
fash9120: where do you get a cooling system pressure test?
TrustMyMechanic.com: More than welcome. If you think you have a coolant leak then you need a
Cooling System Pressure Tester. A compression tester is used on the engine
to determine if there is internal wear/damage.
westin1985: These new cars have electric fans. Are those fans able to pull enough air
across the radiator to easily cool the vehicle at idle and slow speeds in
hot weather. I get they use electric fans to make the car more fuel
efficient. Don't they allow the car to easily overheat. The fan in your
truck pulls a lot more air than those electrics fans do and should easily
cool the engine.
Paul O'Neal: A bunch of the fins on the radiator are bent. I just noticed it overheating
yesterday when I took it to a city with lots of traffic lights. The fans
are operating fine. I just replaced the thermostat and it did nothing. I
will be replacing the radiator in a few days.
TrustMyMechanic.com: You want to get a cooling system PRESSURE Test to help locate a leak, if
you have one. A compression test will help you determine if there is
internal wear inside the cylinders, which I dont think is your issue. You
should be able to get an aftermarket radiator for about $150-200 or you
might see if you have a radiator shop in your area that can "boil out"
yours, sometimes its better to get a new one than try and mess with your
old one though.
TrustMyMechanic.com: As long as there are NO coolant leaks and you are not constantly adding
coolant to the system I would lean toward a problem with the radiator...a
restriction at the bottom that can not be flushed out. When its running
hot, feel the upper and lower radiator hoses, they should be pretty close
to same temp. If not, there is air in the system that needs to be bled out,
there is a leak and not enough coolant, or a restriction is happening. Does
that help? Probably not an issue with the fan clutch.
TrustMyMechanic.com: I would first start with cleaning the throttle body, I have a video showing
you how to do that in my youtube channel (sorry I can't put a URL in the
comment here) try that first and see what happens.
TrustMyMechanic.com: Those vehicle are notorious for small headgasket seeps, but if the engine
is not overheating and you are not having to continually add coolant I
would not worry to much about it. I do have a really good headgasket sealer
additive I show in my youtube channel....."best headgaket sealer" you might
want to try it and see if it helps.
Omar Chisolm: did u bleed the cooing system? anytime u open the cooing system u allow air
inside which can cause overheating, and lack of heat in the winter.
westin1985: What is the maximum air temperature a typical vehicle can endure with out
overheating with the AC and blower running? Do they put out these
statistics/information on cars?
