Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Greetings Norma, I need more information. 1. What work did you have done? 2. Is the temperature gauge in the red? 3. Any other lights on? 4. Has the radiator boiled over? 5. Do you hear the fan running? 6. Is the heater working ok? 7. When does it overheat? Running an overheated engine can result in MAJOR engine damage. Most overheated vehicles should be towed in for service! Amy Mattinat

Jamey Wozniak, Owner and CEO at Joe's Hitch, Trailer & Truck Accessories There are a few things this could be. Make sure you have the correct thermostat and have the cooling system pressure checked before spending more money.

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Norma, I would be interested to hear what was done so far for your over heating problem. The obvious things to check would be the thermostat, radiator, coolant and flushing the system completely. If you want to get back to us about what you had done, we could give you a better answer to your question.

Kim Walker, Marketing Director at Peak Automotive Not knowing what all has been done would be difficult to suggest anything else.  You mentioned you had "everything" done already - what exactly has been done already? There could be a variety of things causing the car to run hot. 

Patty Streeter,  at Take your vehicle to an ASE certified technician for further diagnosis. Driving an overheated vehicle can cause serious engine damage.
