Did you put a new cap on the radiator? Small as it seems, if it does not provide an adequate seal on the radiator, than the system does not get pressurized, thus keeping the boiling point around 212 deg. your engine gets way hotter than than normally. When sealed right, the pressurized system raises the boiling point to close to 300. thats how is works. If thats not it,(assuming it is the last thing replaced) than you might have either a cracked head/ head gasket/ valve guides, cooling ports, basic large dollar items. Lets hope for your sake the problem is still in the cooling system, before you look at the motor. If you take out the sparkplugs, you'll be able to tell real quick, rusty, burnt whitish-orange looking condition. Good luck

SOURCE: 2000 Sunfire coolant problem. Engine overheating,

ok, its time for a radiator flush. there is major sludge in the internals of this radiator. Make sure the thermostat is in the correct position as well. I've seen many cars come into my shop with the thermostat inserted backwards.

SOURCE: 1990 honda accord temp gauge above hot limit.

Hi there,

Firstly - DO NOT run engine, when guage reads hot, as this will cause costly damage to head gasket & alloy engine head.

The fact that guage takes 1min to read HOT, would confirm the guage IS working properly.

So, other components which are likely to cause hot readings (in this order) are:

- lack of coolant (or leakage somewhere): is there sufficient green coolant at the correct level? Top up mixture to correct level. Repair any leaks.

- collapsed radiator hose: when engine is cold, start engine, then quickly watch both upper & lower radiator hoses to see if either begins to flex inwards (collapse). Replace if either hose is collapsed.

- bad/incorrect thermostat rating : when replacing thermostats, you must ensure it is of the SAME temp rating (they all differ).

- Incorrect Temp sensor rating: the ratings of this sensor must be within manufacturer's spec's.

- bad waterpump: the engine relies on the waterpump to distribute the coolant throughout the entire system. If waterpump is faulty, coolant will not flow quick enough, causing overheating.

If you still believe all of the above components are OK, then have your cooling system "pressure tested". This test should be done, before looking further at other electrical components.

Cheers,

SOURCE: Peugeot 206 temperature gauge not working?

it could be a couple of things, first, check the wires to the temprature sender unit make sure they have not broke, as it was sudden this may be it, also it could be the sender unit it self as a freind of mine had with her car i changed that and the one for the radiator switch, but most of the time it will be something to do with the sender unit on the engine...hope this helps

Peugeot 206 temp gauge issue


Make sure the coolant level is correct. If it is, could be a bad water pump or a clogged radiator. Check the radiator to see if it looks like the inside has a lot of scale and deposits. Remove some coolant if necessary. If the radiator looks relatively clean , could be a bad pump.

Peugeot 406 coolant temp warning light


1. Check the coolant level if you have not already.

2. The most likely cause is a stuck thermostat so that when the engine is getting up to operating temp the thermostat is not opening at all - or enough - for the coolant to flow freely between the radiator and the engine to cool the heated fluid. If you check the radiator after driving and find it is cold it is a sure sign that the heated coolant that is circulating through the engine at operating temp and higher is not getting to the radiator. The first thing I would do is to change the thermostat and re-check. At the same time completely flush the coolant and replace it with new fluid of the correct spec.

The radiator fans are not going to operate when the fluid in the radiator is cold because the hot fluid cannot flow through from the engine. The fans have a temperature sensor switch.

3. If that does not solve the problem I would suspect the water pump has corroded and needs to be replaced. However from the symptoms you have described I believe a new thermo will fix the problem.

4. Don't drive the car when it is overheating. This is a certain way to blow the head gasket and potentially crack or warp the cylinder head. (In a worst case you can crack the engine block.) It will be nice and expensive to repair if you blow a head gasket or damage the cylinder head.

fans came late on those car,like 212 and second fan comes on at 224,you reprogram it to come a lot sooner,,other thing is there might be gunk inside the block,and coolant has hard time to pass through,and staying longer than enough in block temp goes high,even tough the radiator is doing it's job,it is just coming out block lot hotter than it suppose to be,and gauge read the block not the radiator

I have a Peugeot 206 1400cc and I seem to have a problem with the cooling fan. As the car moves cooling fan comes on and temperature gauge goes to red and the stop sign appears. Then slowly the gauge goes...


firstly you need to check the coolant level and make sure there are no air bubbles in the cooling circuit
secondly the thermostat could be damaged and stays in the closed position
thirdly the cooling radiator could be clogged and it must be flushed or replaced
you have to take into accont that it could be a faulty message sent by faulty temperature sensor or bad connector of the senser
so you need to open the hood and decide, is the engine very hot or is it normal but still the fan is on
