06 M35 overheating

Postby zx2max » Mon Aug 12, 2019 6:36 pm

Hey my fellow M35 enthusiasts. This morning my car started overheating, CEL came on, and I immediately pulled over. I could see coolant leaking from the radiator so I got a tow home. It definitely needed to be replaced. So I did and it solved the leak but the car continued to overheat. So then I replaced the thermostat and still it overheats. I don't want to randomly replace stuff. Is it the coolant temp sensor now? I'm praying it's not the pump. What do i check next?

How sure are you that you do not have air in the system? Did you burp the system after replacing the radiator?

Once again, thank you Ilya for your help! I had not bled the system. Once I did that the temperature was back to where it belongs.
