Where do you live and what is the outside temperature when the "overheating" occurs?
What is your engine's temperature reading when the car "overheats?" (Note- I had a 20+ mile drive today and it was running an even 203 degrees. I hit some traffic and it got up to 216. At idle it will start to run hot... somewhere up to around 220. If you are moving at a modest speed, you should see temps in the low 200s).
Does the overheating occur in city or stop and go traffic?
Does your car have the stock thermostat?
Did you recently replace the coolant? If so, you may have a bubble in the system.
The car still all original, 30,00 miles . I bought it 3 month ago from Texas and shipped it overseas. The outside temperature was in the 60's. It was running normal. Now the outside temperature is in 90's, I started having the overheat temperature. Should I chandler the thermostat to a lower temperature or need to replace the radiator to a bigger one ! I am really confused. I don't know where to start.
Instead of starting to modify the car you need to find the actual problem. It should run fine in 90 degree temperatures as designed. First and cheapest attempt at fixing would be to change out the thermostat. If the car is a 2010 it is time to change the antifreeze anyway.
Take the thermostat out and put it in water on the stove. Verify it opens at about 205 degrees F.
I changed my spark plugs. Now if i hit the gas my check engine light comes on. The code is P0441. I know the code is EVAC. I changed the canister purge solenoid. I clear the check engine and it stays off until I hit the gas again
Hey all, so my wife’s 2010 Challenger R/T (5.7L) has had this freakin annoying coolant leak that I cannot find. I’ve changed all both main hoses, the radiator and the water pump. I have a new coolant reservoir waiting on the sidelines.
she did hit a concrete base for a light pole a few years...
I have a 2014 Challenger SXT plus and last night the Vehicle security alarm went off when I tried to open the door (keyless entry did not work so had to open the door using key) and to stop it I inserted the keyfob (push start did not work) to start the engine and now the keyfob is stuck and...
I have been having this pop or tick sound coming from the rear of the driveline...Its a 15' SXT+, 8 speed auto, and the noise developed after a couple of years and around 40K.
The sound occurs at lower speeds during the following:
* accelerating forward OR in reverse from stop or...
