Car running hot - Cars & Trucks

Answers :

Check your water. if it is winter and you running your heat, then it could be your heater core. a sure sign is a wet passenger floorboard.

also check your radiator hoses. both should be hot. if one is not hot, then you have no coolant flow.

check your oil. milky, dirty white oil is a sign of a blown head/headgasket. water mixes with oil and it makes a distinct color.

if all that checks out, then check your fans. FOR ELECTRIC FANS ONLY: let the car warm up, start getting to a normal temperature (may have to drive it), and then stop and pop the hood. if you do not see a fan moving, then you have a bad relay (common) or a bad fan motor (not so common).

FOR CLUTCH FANS: there is no real way to test them. if all the steps before have turned out to be ok and normal, then you need your clutch on your fan replaced. most of them are on bigger v8s and RWD cars.
