1. OPEN THE BONET
2. OPEN THE RADIATOR CAP
3. CHECK THE FLUID INSIDE WHICH SHOULD BE UP TO THE NECK. IF NOT FILL IT WITH COOLANT .
4. START THE ENGINE AND IDLE (WARNING:- KEEP YOUR HANDS AND FINGERS AWAY FROM THE RADIATOR FAN SINCE IT START AUTOMATICALLY WHEN HEATED AND STOPS WHEN COOLS. ITS ALL AUTOMATIC)
5. SEE IF THE FLUID INSIDE THE RADIATOR IS GASSING OR EMITTING AIR BUBBLES. IF IT IS THEN YOU SHALL HAVE TO GET THE HEAD GASKET REPLACED WHICH HAS PROBABLY DAMAGED DUE TO HEATING. CHECK IF THERE IS ANY LEAKAGE AND THE RADIATOR HOSES ARE NOT LEAKY.
6. IF ALL THE ABOVE ARE OK THEN SHUT DOWN ENGINE CLOSE THE RADIATOR CAP CAREFULLY AND RESTART THE ENGINE CHECK RADIATOR FAN SHOULD START WHEN THE TEMPERATURE NEEDLE REACHES AT QUARTER OR MORE BUT NOT ABOVE THE HALF LEVEL. MONITER IT CLOSELY AND SHUT DOWN BEFORE THE TEMPERATURE GAUGE REACHES CLOSES TO RED.IF HOSE IS DAMAGED THEN GET A NEW ONE AND REPLACE WHEN THE ENGINE TI FULLY COOL DO NOT TRY WITH WARM ENGINE AS IT COULD BURN YOU.
TO REMOVE THE RADIATOR HOSE LOOSEN THE WIRE CLIP WITH THE HELP OF SCREW DRIVED AND PULL OFF THE DEFECTIVE HOSE FROM BOTH END IF YOU HAVE PROBLEM TRY WITH THE HELP OF A SMALL SCREW DRIVER NOT TO APPLY FORCE WHICH MAY DAMAGE THE NIZZLE.FOR LOWER SIDE HOSE YOU SHALL HAVE TO GO UNDERNEATH THE CAR AS THE RADIATOR LOWER HOSE IS NOT EASY TO REACH.

I HAVE A AUDI A6 2.8 PETROL MANUAL. I RECENTLY RAN OUT OF PETROL AND NOW EVEN AFTER PUTTING 15 LITRES IN THE TANK IT STILL WONT START


try quick start to get it started. Alot of times when you run out of fuel the pump looses its prime. If you cant get it started you may of overheated the fuel pump by allowing it to run dry. Try smacking the gas tank hard a few times, this sometimes frees up the pump if its stuck.

2001 chevy monte carlo is overheating when driving


Hi;
If your engine cools down when moving fast, you either have a problem with your water pump or your electric fans that cool off your radiator and a/c condenser. This is controlled by a temperature switch, but these fans should kick on instantly when A/C is selected.

Head lights turn off and come back on on their own!!!!!


There is a short in the power wire to the headlights from the headlight switch. The internal circuit breaker in the headlight switch is overheating and shutting them down, until it cools off.
