If you have a metal radiator take it out and have a radiator shop repair it. If it plastic/aluminum you might be able to have a radiator shop replace the tank or you will need a new radiator. NOTE!!! Epoxy will not work!!

I have a 89 pontiac firebird Trans Am "GTA" 5.7L tuned port injected. My engine gets hot somehow and my car has a quick start but lower power afterward. What could the problem be?


Fix the radiator cooling problems. You will damage the engine if you keep running the car in an overheated condition.

1. Replace the thermostat in the cooling system
2. Replace the water pump
3. Flush the cooling system thoroughly and re-fill with the correct coolant. Bleed any air out of the system otherwise you will have problems with air blockages and thus poor coolant flow.

You probably do not know how to do any of this so take it to a reputable workshop or cooling specialist to have it done.

Car loosing coolant no overheating


The only way to find this is to check for leaks.
Otherwise you have a cylinder head problem. Warm up the engine until the thermostat opens, Top up the radiator to the neck of the filler. Run the car and check for bubbles in the radiator. Give the top hose a few squeezes, to shift any bubbles from the system, first. If there are more bubbles you have a head problem.

1996 honda civic dx is overheating after long highway drives. Is leaking coolant from top hose as well. Hoping it is that easy of a fix. Thoughts? Thanks for help!


try making sure cooling fans are working by jumping them to the battery and see if they turn on. also could be the thermostat not opening and building up pressure.

Overheating Problem


There are a lot of places it could be leaking from,it could be a head gasget, freeze plug, intake gasget, ect. best thing to do is pressureise the cooling system and look for a leak, and watch the pressure guage on tester. Do you have the right radiator cap? or at least the right # cap. That is something thats over looked a lot, and they go bad too.

Overheating Thunderbird


The first thing to do is have is the radiator cap checked, if it's alright then check to see if the thermostat is opening. You will need to remove the thermostat housing to remove it. The temperature the thermostat is suppose to open at is stamp on it. Heat a pan of water a few degrees above what it is suppose to open at and put the thermostat in to see if it opens,
