My 1996 Suzuki Swift Cino is overheating. Replaced waterpump 3 months ago. Stopped overheating until 1 week ago. Replaced the thermostat yesterday and still overheating. Loosing all coolant, but no visible leaks. Not blowing white smoke, oil doesnt appear watery and water doesnt appear oily?
Hello, if you are losing coolant as you say than the most probable place is through your head and into your exhaust system, it is highly likely you have a cracked head or a major head gasket leak. The only other place it can go is if you have a auto ... 1996 Suzuki Swift

Check tempature switch for the cooling fans or maybe a bad fan relay check all cooling fan.First the radiator, unless it has been replaced with an aftermarket "all\015\012metal" radiator, is going to be aluminum with plastic tanks. ... 2001 Acura 3.2TL
Toyota Emina 1995 2.2 TD. On long journies with fuller loads, the temp guage goes in the red after an hours drive. We pull over or nurse car into services (putting fan on full blast to cool engine) . When we check , there is water in the system, no hose or radiator leaks and gasket I am told is OK. Car seems to loose a bit of water and needs topping up, but then drives OK at moderate speeds.

I have a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon that is overheating. How can I tell if I have a bad water pump or if it could be the thermostat. Does not appear to be a radiator leak or hose leak, but I am constantly loosing antifreeze.
If it's overheating it will lose antifreeze.I would change the thermostat first and see it it solves the overheating problem if not then worry about the water pump. Thermostats are only $7-10. ... 2003 Hyundai Tiburon
I have a 2003 dodge stratus SE, the other day it started overheating. I replaced the thermostat and it was fine for a day, then it started overheating again. I saw that my coolant was completely empty and notice it was leaking so i thought it was the water pump but when i filled it up with water to take me down the street it started overheating but all the water was still there and smoking, my radiator isnt leaking and i dont hear my timing belt squealing. Could it still be my water pump or some

Guage indictes overheating condition but never steams or boils over. both fans and thermostat working properly. no visual leaks and seems to not loose fluid. External ir temp gauge show top hose area of radiator running about 180 and the lower hose are reads about 110, indicating to me flow and cooling. i drained oil but not exactly sure how to tell if there is water mixed in from possible head gasket issue. the oil seemed a little off color being browner that is was burnt black. is there an eas

I have a 1999 acura cl. There is oil in the radiator and coolant overflow. It is not overheating and loosing very little oil. The hose are now getting soft and gummy. There isn't any water or coolant in the oil as of yet. About 6 months ago I notice the car was running very rough and found that there was almost no oil in it... Not sure if the last oil change was done properly. It has never leaked oil onto the ground and still isnt. It has 185K miles on it and has been service to the hilt
It seems there could be a blown head, if there is oil in the radiator. If the car ran out of oil and it was still being driven, then that could have overheated the engine and maybe warpped the a piston. Sometimes when the oil is changed at some shops ... 1999 Acura CL

You have a leak somewhere. My test would be to attatch the pressure tester and run the engine around 2500 RPMs. If it is spraying the liner under the bonnet, it is either the water pump or a pin hole leak in the radiator spraying into the fan. Let me ... 1995 Toyota Pickup
I have a 2001 Alero 3.4L V6; I have replaced the intake gasket the engine itself and countless other repairs but recently the car has been leaking coolant and it has also been overheating. I just replaced the water pump after a mechanic told me there was a leak coming from the back of the water pump. Upon replacing the water pump the car was still overheating. We then bled the car through the upper valve and it seemed like antifreeze was getting to the engine block. Well now it is overheating ag

Vehicle overheating quickly. changed thermostat it ran fine for about 2 weeks, now it is overheating quickly again. no leaks are coming from water pump. Do not see any water leaking anywhere, but when it over heats the radiator will not have much water left in it.
Hi, check you have heat coming out the heater in the car put it on hottest setting and see what happens if it comes out cold then the chances are the head gasket has gone and is pushing gasses into the coolant system causing an air lock and then over ... 2001 Pontiac Montana
1999 saturn sl1 wagon has overheating problem. Had a leak in the reservoir so I replaced that. During that time had added stop leak several times. Reservoir is now new, but still losing water at speeds over 60. Radiator seems fine, hoses are ok, heater core not leaking, water pump is ok. How do I find out where water is leaking to?
If you cant see any water coming out anywhere then the only choice is a blown head gasket. \015\012\015\012The reason the resorvior had a leak was the pressure from the engine got into the coolant and blew up the reservior bottle. This i ... 1999 Saturn SL

94 Subaru lagacy 2.2L. The radiator is using water, but I don't see where it is going. I filled the overflow full, run the engine at fast idle for 15 min. Then check the overflow and its almost empty. No excess water coming out of exhaust(except for usual exhaust smoke), no leaks in hoses, no leaks in radiator. Took it for a short drive, when I returned, I checked fluid level, had to put almost 1/2 gallon of water in. The heater core isn't leaking either. To loose that much water, you woul

2003 Jeep Liberty 4WD 6-cyl, 65000 miles. Last year, my car overheated. Front driver side, orange-red coolant was leaking. Granted, I never had it flushed. After the car cooled, I filled with water, and was able to drive home. Next day, I had the coolant flushed, and everything was fine, until it overheated a month later. Turns out it was slowly leaking. I had it topped off, and was able to get home. The water pump blew out, and the car started spewing coolant. Brought it in, a

I just got the water pump and timing belt replaced on a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe v6 because antifreeze was leaking from that area and the SUV was overheating- i didnt let it get too high and it was leaking long before the engine was getting hot. The mechanic took it for a test drive to make sure it wasnt overheating and it wasnt. I picked it up and drove it around doing errands and then noticed it was leaking in the same place as before, but the engine was not overheating what so ever. Could thi
Could be intake gasket, head gasket or leaking bolt that didn't get sealed. You can use sealer but sometimes it does more damage then good. I don't use it on any vehicles that come in because of sometimes plugging more then it should, like the radiat ... Hyundai Santa Fe
Radiator Flush I have drained the radiator and need to know what do from here. Do I leave the valve open while the engine is running and keep water from the hose introducing fluid into the cooling system? Or should I be going about this differently? Ultimately, I have a small leak in my head gasket and will be adding Bar's Leaks to fill the viod. The jeep has never overheated and loses water. I have to add water about every 4 days. I have checked the coolant system for leaks and found none. No w

Hi I have a Pajero that is loosing water. The water pump is leaking and there are bubbles in the radiator. The bubbles could be a head gasket problem but could it just be a badly leaking water pimp problem? Could a water pump take in air? I picked Lancer in the Chose a Model because there is no Pajero listed.
Yes a Water Pump that is leaking can take in Air. You will need to get the Water Pump replaced. The same thing happened on my Neon. Get the Water Pump replaced and your problems should go away. ... Mitsubishi Lancer

My 1994 Tracer is overheating, I have changed the thermostate. The radiator had a couple leaks so I plugged them and now there are no leaks. I think the water pump is still pumping and I get an check engine light now. Could it be a bad water temp sending unit or just that the water pump has eroded down far enough that its not pumping water. Car has 219000 miles on it.
You may have to flush your system out. just take and loosen the nut on the bottom of the radiator. get all of the radiator fluid into a container. then connect a water hose to the top of the radiator. with the drain plug still out, turn the hose o ... 1994 Mercury Tracer
