How do I fix a heating engine problem?

I have a Camaro.


Answer by  Mary63 (21)

I would first check the thermostat, be sure it's not sticking. If the thermostat is not sticking, make sure the fan behind the radiator is coming on appropriately. My husband has had to fix these before with a toggle switch in which you actually can manually turn the fan on to cool off the engine.

The most common problem in engine overheating is the failure of the thermostat. Follow the rubber hose from the top of the radiator to the engine and ensuring the engine is cool, remove the metal fitting from the engine. You will find the thermostat underneath.

Well if the engine overheats then you need to fix a problem in your cooling system. Flush the radiator and replace your thermostat.

A good place to start would be to check all of your hoses and hose clamps. You should also make sure that there are no leaks in your radiator. Another place to look would be your cars thermostat.

You will want to try replacing the thermostat. To find the thermostat follow the top rubber hose to the engine/ There you will find a metal fitting, remove it. Go to part store and get new one, place where old one was, replace metal fitting and fill with water.

Replace your thermostat. Flush your cooling system and replace your coolant. Also Check your water pump for leaks and unusual noise, Inspect your fan belt.

For a better cooling of the engine you need to have a clean radiator and bigger fan.The liquid that is used needs to bee good quality and the thermostat need to work perfect

Engine heating problems usually come from an overworked carburetor, and that's the first place you should look. If you unhook the carburetor and examine the underside, the plating can be stripped, which adds at least 30% heat to your engine. If that's not the issue, look at the manual water cooling and see if the tubes are connected properly.

Check whether radiator fan is running on 12 volts. Have a cylinder leak-down test for blow gasket or head crack. On checking and fixing these two steps will solve heating.
