Default A very bad experience cycles of OVERHEAT that makes me go mad of the mini truck.

Good day to all of you i just wanted to sum it up all here because of this. I just bought a suzuki mini truck preferably scrum, at first of try the truck seems fine and after i travel from a certain 12 kilometers and boom it overheated. The cause? rusty deposits inside the circulation of the water in the truck. Then, i tried to flush everyday and per day i go to that routine of traveling 12 kilometers and it overheat again, then now. I let my car go to a shop in Goodyear in our place, i tell them my problem that it overheat due to rusty deposits and i tell them to replace hoses and clean the system so that there will be no any rust. Then i told them that the system i will need is the original thing like when it reaches the desired temp the auxiliary fan will engage and when it cools down it will stop and if it rises again it engage again etc etc. An they told me yes it is till in the original system and they are trying to find the cause of overheating.

And after the day they finished replacing and cleaning they flush it with a chemical and after they called me. they will try to test drive it and i told them okay go just give me a feedback whether the temperature will rise to the top. and when they called me, they told me "Sir we just got overheated the auxiliary fan will run when the temperature desired is in place it just it could not handle the heat that it will on and of "di raw kaya ng system magpalamig kasi automatic off and on ang auxiliary fan" and all we can do is to shorten the wires so that the auxiliary fan would always spin so that we could go back to the shop. So lets try to let it shorten the way it is and we will try to test it again if ever it will occur again." and i just told them yes please do. And now when i read some of the previous post here, it is not good to let the auxiliary fan spin overtime due that it will choke or run in colder that it wont get the desired amount of heat. or to the main point of this the system is clean no rusty deposits just that my thermostat under my radiator not fully function in the exact temp? Comments is highly and it is appreciated. I just wanted to have a good and understandable feedback thanks.

This is a tough one to sort out given the language barrier / explanation here.

Bottom line (IF I understand the problem correctly) you should not have to by-pass the aux fan to made it run constantly. There are other issues causing the problem.

MY guess is that the radiator and / or the engine coolant passages are so clogged that the vehicle simply overheats.

I'd replace the thermostat (cheap and easy) and then the radiator, if the problem persists.

Also add the model, year and engine size to your posting.

Or does my sensor is not working right? Like when the gauge reaches on the middle temp the fan will engage and when it is colder it will stop right? Thats the way my system works. and im very psycho about it. When the mechanic test it why does it still overheated when the auxiliary fan turn on and when it shorten it doesn't have any problems at all? Sigh this truck.

The fan appears to be working (cycling) OK.

The mechanic is just masking the overheating issue by making it run constantly. That's not a "fix".

OK I see now that the radiator is new.

Then I'd focus on the thermostat OR the engine coolant passages being clogged.

Are you losing coolant? Any leaks? White smoke out of the exhaust (head gasket issue) maybe?

There are no any leaked coolant, by the way the head gasket is new also i just forgot to mention it here. Sir does the engine really needs to cool down? The japs designed that truck and i wanted to be the way it is but the overheating issue still comes up after the other.

Greetings! Did they rod the radiator inside?
Are you using coolant?
Where is the radiator located, at the front of the truck?
(some have relocated it under the seat)
