Engine Running Hot But No Overheating by autoremedy365: 6:52pm On Aug 09, 2022
Engine running hot but no overheating is quite challenging; If your car is running hot but not actually overheating, it’s time to check the cooling system. There are several things that could be causing this problem. The thermostat and radiator cap can both fail, which will cause your car to run hot but not overheat. Flushing out the cooling system and cleaning the radiator fins are also good ideas when troubleshooting a vehicle’s heat gauge readings.

If your engine is running hot but not overheating, there are several things you can check before taking it to the mechanic. The good news is that most times this kind of problem can be easily fixed and your car will be back up and running in no time.

Engine malfunction light is on.

The engine malfunction light is on. The first thing you should do is check the engine light to see what the problem is. If it’s showing a coolant or oil level issue (or any other issue), then address that first. You can usually reset the light by turning off your car and restarting it, but if it continues to come on, your car may need further evaluation by a professional mechanic.

If you’ve ruled out everything else and are still seeing excessive overheating, then there’s an underlying problem that needs more attention from a professional mechanic—but don’t feel bad! It takes experience and knowledge of automotive systems to determine what those problems might be and where they are located within your vehicle’s engine compartment

Bad thermostat

A thermostat is a valve that opens and closes to regulate the flow of coolant. If your engine is running hot but not overheating, it’s possible that your thermostat is stuck open. This means that there’s no restriction on the flow of coolant through your radiator, which results in the engine running warm or hot but not overheating.

To replace a thermostat, remove it from its housing (usually located in the engine block), then install its replacement.

I agree 100% with this post. I once had that problem with my car. The hot engine was so bad that the engine was grinding teeth but it was not overheating! Mechanics did all manner of things until an electrician checked and said the fan was not cooling the radiator properly. We now had connect the fan directly and lo and behold the problem was solved permanently. For the past 3yrs now i have not done any major work on the engine except servicing!
