Question about Hyundai Trajet

Car does not over heat but uses up water

I have to put about 3/4 L water every time I fill up, depending if I am driving in town or open road. The heat gauge is always on a little below 1/2. Definitely is not leaking, I have checked and double checked.

SOURCE: check engine light blinks

My suggestion is to get the fault codes stored in the car's ecu read by a VW approved garage. That will tell them what "was" wrong. Once a fault has occurred the check engine light will probably stay on until the warning has been cancelled using VW software.
As for the grade of gas used in the car, the users manual will tell you that - it might also be written inside the filler cap.

I wouldn't recommend further use of "engine cleaner" - it might do more harm than good.

Go get the codes read and then you'll know for sure.

Hope this helps. D

SOURCE: Check engine light 05 taurus

From what I understand even a "qualified" Ford mechanic has problems locating this and if you look at a pre-2000 Haynes or Chilton manual it shows it being in a completely different location but to answer your question from what I understand (never changed one myself) it's on the passenger side, under the dash and should be by the radio. Should be held on by one or two screws. Also easy to get to if the radio is removed.

you would have a water pump problem at a guess, does the water come from under the front of the engine?if so that is what it will be

SOURCE: 92 Toyota Camry, antifreeze leaking no leak found

have you had the undercarriage inspected for white stains from coolant, rust stains if your system is corroded? How many miles? has the water pump ever been replaced, that would be my guess, water pumps leak while the eng is running and the hot engine evaporates the coolant, so in many cases none on the ground. Also have the system pressure tested by a shop and put on a rack to check for signs of leaking under the car.

make sure to check your coolant tank at every fill-up for a few fill-ups. This problem has a way of coming back if you don't top up your coolant at just the right times.

Water is great if it is all you have and in the middle of no where. You should always use coolant. depending on time of year a 50/50 mixture of antifreeze and coolant. If car steel over heating you could have a bad thermostat. P.S. never take radiator cap off of a hot engine.

Need more info then how much you spent . Is the motor a 4.6 L have you changed the water pump or radiator thermostat? Is the cooling fans kicking in? Do you have heat going in side of car from the heater core ? Is the motor full of water/antifreeze? ....I would start at the water pump by taking the belt off the pulley and spinning it by hand . If it spins freely with a little effort then is should be fine . If it makes noise or just spins freely then replace it . Take heater core hose off and spray water threw it and check to see if it is clogged...if take thermostat out try running water threw the heater core hoses and see if it will circulate out that way . If no glogs are present put hose back on heater core . Fill the motor threw thromstat housing till it is all the way full. Put thermostat back in and fill daditor and over flow tank . Ford 4.6/5.4L seemed to really have to build up pressure before the temp gauge starts working right and to get good flow threw them . So take it for a good drive where you can open it a few times and really let it warm it . Then when you pull in and shut it off you might hear gurggling from the dash that's air getting pushed out of the heater core . Check your fluid level for the next few days and make sure to keep it full till it stops going down . I have had to do this many times on the fords 4.6/5.4L and then every works but genraly these motors don't have over heating problems unless there is a glog , bad water pump, or simply giving a false reading due to air being trapped in the motor

Coolant on the spark plugs is a classic indication of a failed cylinder head gasket. No point in doing any further analysis 'till you get that squared away. When you replace the head gaskets, it's always advisable to have the heads checked for cracks and warpage.

First i will tell you ive tried it all from all manufactures, they left me samples and over 15 years never seen one that worked, heres the way to do this, first drain the cooling system, next remove the thermostant reinstall the housing without the stant so there are no leaks, next if to fill system with water add the sealer repair, top off system put cap on and let run for 1/2 hour with heat on low then drive car for 1/2 hour, always keep an eye on water level depending on how bad a leak, then shut car down . let cool. restart and drive to see if repaired then if repaired drain water out put thermostant back in and fill with 50/50 coolant and water. good luck hope this helps.

How often should the Brake discs be replaced

Only when the light comes on to let you know that the time for replacement is coming up.
Or when the brakes start to viberate and the pedal goes up and down slightly and the steering you can feel a wobble .
OR when you hear a bad grinding noise back or front.. other wise it depends on weather you drive in town work or open road long trips
Town about 100.000km
Open roads long trips 180,000km as it all depends on how often you use your brakes and how fast you drive to how hard you brake.

Put in new thermo and now the antifreeze keeps blowing out

You need to make sure you get any air pockets out of the engines coolant system before you drive anywhere. If you dont see the air bleeder try this. Fill the radiator and put the recovery bottle about half full. Put the cap on the radiator and let the car run for 5 minutes then turn it off and let it cool off. Carefully remove rad. cap and see if it needs more coolant.If it does not put cap back on and let it run for 10 minutes.Turn it off and let it cool then check it again.
Dont be in a hurry! To many people will drive with an air pocket and over heat the engine! Most of the newer cars do trap air if you let some of the coolant out.
Wear safety glasses when removeing radiator cap slowly,to be safe.
I hope this helps you.

Overheating problem

looks like you have done everything but the problem with your car is that the cylider head gasket has gone have a look at the dipstick or remove the oil filler cap if it looks like mayo then 100% head gasket has failed you said no water on the floor so it must have gone into engine only way this can happen is head gasket failing, if you have put lot of water in to the cooling system then your sump will be full of oil water mix.

let us know your findings so we can help you more if you need it

1995 Diamante overheats on hills.

The heating up as you build revs, to me, indicates a partially oped thermostat. If it hasn't been replaced, I would do so. It's inexpensive and easy enough to do. Make sure you get a gasket with it.
The rattling thing is another matter. Do you think it is the water pump that is rattling? Does it ever drip from under your engine all the time?
Just curious...
Hope this helps... Good luck!

Sounds like the radiator may need to be cleaned and bored. Under slow, in town driving conditions, the engine isn't working too hard. Long trips means the engine has to work a lot harder. If the cores in the radiator are plugged, the water can't get through to be cooled by the air.
