Question about Hyundai Motor 2002 Elantra

2002 Hyundai elantra overheating.

The engine overheated very quickly. I checked all the fluids and they were all good. The oil is not milky. The upper radiator hose is hot though while the other one is not at all. Otherwise, car runs perfectly.

    Went to replace the thermostat and hoses only to find the water outlet was busted. The only place to get another is from the dealer. Changed the hoses and thermostat too. Thanks for leading me in the right direction.

Sounds like the waters not flowing correctly could be thermostat or other blockage.Are radiator fans working when vehicle is at operating temperature?Generaly this is a thermostat fault or faulty temperature sensor.

Overheated now won t start


Do a compression test or cylinder leakage test to check if the head gasket is blown. Looks like it blew on the water side. Or it could be that it overheated so badly that it could have collapsed the rings.. But if its not turning over means water got into the cylinders and seized up the piston. Remove the plugs and have a looks with bore scope for water ingress

Where is termostat in hyundai elantra


It is not likely the thermostat, because the thermostat is showing that it is overheating,so it is working, you must have a coolant leak somewhere. You will have to find coolant leak. Car is overheating because it is low on coolant

Engine overheat, A/C shut off, fan hot


Chances are that your engine is ok. Bad engine overheating can seize the engine. Less extensive overheating can crack the engine especially the cylinder head and lead to power loss or mixing of water and engine oil. If water is mixing with oil, the oil looks milky. If your car is not losing power and the oil looks normal then chances are that there was no damage to your engine.

Just make sure that whatever caused the overheating in the first place is sorted out - perhaps the radiator flushing resolved the cause of the overheating.

Overheating, don't know why


The most common problem with overheating is the thermostat. It becomes plugged and won't allow enough coolant to pass through the system. Another cause could be old coolant. Flushing the coolant periodically (when the coolant appears to have rust in it or has faded in color) is a good idea to keep the antifreeze/coolant up to peak levels. Bost are worth looking into but I'd be surprised (barring any leaks in the sytem) if the thermostat wasn't the culprit here. Best of luck.

2003 hyundai elantra gt overheat


If the upper radiator hose is cool, but the engine is overheated than this could be a sign that the thermostat is stuck. By the way, the thermostat is at the end of the upper hose in the metal housing. There are two bolts holding it to the engine.
