Be sure not to drive the car if it is overheating because overheating can warp the cylinder head and/or engine block causing costly damage. After repairing the hose, when you refilled the cooling system, if all air was not purged from the cooling passageways, that trapped air can cause both overheating and lack of cabin heat. Trapped air can actually block normal coolant circulation. Once you are certain all trapped air is gone, if the engine still overheats, the most common causes of overheating include low coolant level, a faulty thermostat, a plugged radiator, a faulty radiator pressure cap, collapsed hoses, non functioning cooling fans, and a faulty water pump or drive belt. Certain engine faults, such as a leaking head gasket or poor engine running condition can also cause overheating.
