Default Re: overheating

have you considered the cooling fan? it's been highly documented for this problem. and, if the system is not completely burped so that air is out, it will overheat as well.

Could of damaged the engine.
You don't poor antifreeze or water in an overheated vehicle.

Are you running the heater when you drive??
I run my defroster at all times..

Default Re: overheating

Lots of reasons why a car overheats. We have no idea how the car was maintained. Was the correct cooling fluid used, if not it could have an adverse affect on the fluid that was already in the system. If you don't have the Turbo, you have two speeds on your radiator fan and like soyomb just said, one speed could have burnt out. Very common problem. Is there any leak at all where your loosing/dripping antifreeze on the ground. Any loss of fluid would cause air to get into the system which would cause the overheating, or are you loosing fluid and not seeing anything on the ground. That could be a sign of internal (head gasket) problems.

Welcome to the forum.

How is it overheating?

By that I mean is it overheating anytime or only when the car is sitting or stuck in traffic?

The cooling fan is known to fail a lot. So that may be the problem.
