    this is michigan man,

    I disassembled the expedietion today and the problem I was having the coolant running out it was the intake gaskets and the answer to rosapasc123's problem the coolant seeping into the car if it is on the passanger side up near the top of the carpet and the floor is wet you need a heater core make sure if you do this job that all safety is done first to make sure your air bags does not go off I would recommend getting a "Haynes" repair manual before you start

check the coolant level at the top tank radiator cap
check for an air lock in the cooling system

Why is my radiator fan staying on constantly until i turn off the car.


Hi Sian, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair in St Charles Mo

I look forward to helping you.

Sian, your engine is overheating and this is a crucial issue. This problem can damage you engine do not let it run very long until you find out the problem. First: VERY IMPORTANT for your safety, wait until the engine cools completely at least an hour, then take off the radiator cap, if you only have a recovery bottle make sure there is coolant in the radiator or recovery bottle. If there's no coolant top off the coolant and see if it overheats again. If it is full of coolant you can try changing the thermostat and see if that stops the overheating. To answer your question the fan is running all the time because of the overheating issue, its trying to cool down the engine. Hopefully it has not overheated enough to warp the heads or damage the engine. Let me know what you find and for further help click here: Auto Repair

Car won't start


old post , no year car, 1989 to 2002
there are 3 engines, 2 up to 1998. all made by toyota
overheating is it,
forget all else. FIND reason for overheating, coolant lost top list.
if loosing coolant that is #1 above all else. find cause.
but
overheating KILLS all ENgines. if not cured fast.
warps heads
is it pinging? that too kills engines.
your engine should never overheat unless it has cooling problems or.

unless the head is warped now, it will overheat, due to coolant loss
is it loosing coolant every hour or day?
CRANKING ALL ENGINES THAT DONT START DRAINS ALL BATTERIES, IT'S NOT a SYMPTOM IT'S NORMAL FOR NOSTARTS. (starter sucks 100 amps from battery every try)


id do a compression test first.
look for coolant in these spots
1: pavement below car.
2: passenger foot wells. (heat core leaks)
3: low radiator at neck cold show no coolant seen there.
4: in the a/t transmission, turns AFT to chocolate milk.
5: water in the engine oil pan, and or the reverse.
oil in the radiator, or side tank.
do all you can to not overheat any engine, and keep the repair bill like 1/3 or less. of BOOM

Bleeding cooling system


sounds like air in system ...
Leave the radiator cap off, turn the engine on and let it run until the radiator "burps": You will see the coolant level drop and may see or hear a large air bubble come to the top as the system burps.
Keep an eye on the temperature gauge throughout this process

  • Refill the radiator to the top and coolant reservoir as needed. Put the radiator cap back on. Note that if the engine runs hot after this procedure there may have been another pocket of air that "burped." Let the engine cool down and then add more coolant to both the radiator and the coolant reservoir.

    Cooling system


    Raise the car front end as high as possible with a floor jack, fill the coolant tank to the top, run the engine until it reaches just short of overheating, shut it down and run water over the radiator, this will burp the air out. Repeat as needed. Don't let the coolant recovery tank run dry during procedure.

    I let my car heat up to get frost of window for about fifteen minutes. When I went out the frost was still on window and no heat coming from dash and car was overheating. I shut it off, let it cool down...


    Start with engine cool, remove rad cap, start engine and turn heater on. Top up rad level and Let engine run until it get's up to normal operating temperature with cap off and add coolant as you see it go down. Watch in rad for coolant to start moving quicker, once gauge gets close to normal temperature, indicating that thermostat has opened. Wait until you see that 2 or 3 times, then top up and install rad cap. Top up coolant return bottle to proper level . You'll want to keep a close eye on coolant return bottle level for next little while. If coolant got that low in the first place, you have a leak somewhere that will have to be found.

    My check engine light is on. Advance Auto Parts says it is the PO 325 Knock Sensor Malfunction Bnk 1 or Single Sensor. My Subaru is a 1996 Impreza. I also have a fast blinking left turn signal that...


    1. Knock sensor. Check all the wiring connections on the engine heads. Your sensor probably is failed (but see Overheating #3 below) .
    2. fast blinking left turn signal. The front bulb has failed, so replace it.
    3. oil temperature light. This may be an indirect result of #1, as the engine is not running properly and this can cause overheating (but see Overheating #3 below)
    Other causes of overheating ...
    1. low oil level
    2. low coolant level. If you are losing coolant, the cause has to be located. The correct fill method is to top up the radiator, then repeatedly squeeze the top rad hose, to "burp" all the air out of the cooling system. You will hear the coolant squishing in the top of the engine. Keep burping until the coolant squishing noise stops.
    3. head gasket(s) may be failing, a not uncommon problem for your engine model. Check for oil in the coolant.

    Overheating but reading normal on gauge . bubbling in overflow bottle .


    Some bubbling may be normal. If it is overheating there may be air in the system and the hot coolant is not reaching the sensor, if this is the case you should bleed air from the system.

    Coolant: Service and Repair
    ENGINE COOLANT REPLACEMENT
    1. Remove the radiator cap, the radiator drain plug and the rear heater unit drain plug (if equipped).
    2. Drain the coolant into a container.
    3. Flush the cooling system with water until all traces of color are gone.
    4. Let the system drain completely.
    5. Tighten the radiator drain plug and the rear heater unit drain plug (if equipped).
    Caution:
    ^ The engine has aluminum parts that can be damaged by alcohol or methanol antifreeze. Do not use alcohol or methanol in the cooling system.
    Use only ethylene-glycol-based coolant.
    ^ Use only soft (demineralized) water in the coolant mixture. Water that contains minerals will cut down on the coolant's effectiveness.
    ^ Engine coolant will damage paint. If engine coolant does get on a painted surface, rinse it off quickly.
    6. Refer to the following chart and select proper mixture of the water and coolant.
    Antifreeze solution mixture percentage
    7. Pour the coolant into the reservoir up to the FULL mark.
    8. Tighten the radiator cap.
    Caution: e If the coolant temperature becomes too high, stop the engine to prevent it from overheating.
    9. Start the engine and let it idle until the cooling fan operates.
    10. After engine warms up, perform the following steps.
    1. Run the engine at 4,000 rpm for 1 minute.
    2. Run the engine at idle for 1 minute.
    3. Repeat steps (1) and (2) several times.
    4. Turn on the main and rear heaters and verify that heat is coming from heater vents.
    11. Stop the engine and wait until it is cool.
    12. Inspect the coolant level. If it is low, repeat Steps 7-12.
    13. Verify there is no coolant leakage.
