SOURCE: car runs hot

CHECK YOUR RELAY IN YOUR FUSE BOX UNDER THE HOOD ON THE DRIVERS SIDE INNER FENDER. THE A/C AND THE HEATER RELAY ARE SAME. CHECK AND SEE IF THE A/C REALY WORKS BY TURNING ON YOUR A/C SWITCH. THE ELECTRIC FAN SHOULD START RIGHT AWAY. OTHERWISE YOU HAVE TO WAIT TILL THE ENGINE ACHEIVES OPERATING TEMP TO KICK THE FAN ON. IF ONE DON'T WORK AND OTHER OTHER DOES... SWITCH THE RELAY AND SEE IF IT WORKS. BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT. $9.00 FOR A NEW RELAY AT CHECKER AUTO PARTS.

SOURCE: 2000 Sunfire coolant problem. Engine overheating,

ok, its time for a radiator flush. there is major sludge in the internals of this radiator. Make sure the thermostat is in the correct position as well. I've seen many cars come into my shop with the thermostat inserted backwards.

OK you have done the engine side of things. If you have an electric radiator cooling fan make sure it comes on when radiator is hot, if not the fan motor is caned or the thermostat switch is faulty. Sometimes the fan motor is supplied by a fused/relayed circuit in which case these items will also need to be checked. Check that not only does the top hose from the engine to radiator get hot but that the bottom one does too. If not this would indicate a blockage perhaps in the radiator core due to sludge. If full of sludge give both ends a flush out with a high pressure hose. Like wise do the same with the bottom hose back to the pump. If the water is circulating and the radiator fan is working then the normal cooling system is working as it should. f the engine is running hot one last thing is to find the EGR valve and check that it is opening as it should. If not the combustion temperatures go very high. One indicator of a hot engine is blue/glazed spark plugs so take one out and check it for signs of hot running. If hot then look to clean the EGR valve and associated exhaust gas feeder pipe with frayed cable, cloth and and carb cleaner spray.

SOURCE: 1996 dodge ram. Vehicle runs hot. I have replaced

Hello there"
sounds like you have done a lot with this there is a few things that you can do to ensue every thing is running right.
first if you can get a handheld thermal gun and check the temperature at the temp sensor on the radiator or block then see what it reads compared to the guage to ensure the guage is correct.
next check the temperature at both the top and the bottom of the radiatoer if there is a big difference in temps the radiator is partially blocked a radiator will increase 30 to 100 degrees if the radiator is 20 percent blocked.. also check to ensure that the radiator hoses are not collapsing.
Now ensure that you are not gettin air in the system by way of the water pump gasket or by loose hoses ok?
and finaly check to ensure that the heater core is not leaking and drawing air into the system or is clogged this will make a vehical give the overheating symptom also ok?
Let me know how this is going
Best regards mikle

I just replaced the starter on my daughters 1996 Honda Accord it started overheating and shutting off she put antifreeze in the radiator but it continued to smoke and shut off again now it won't s


If the smoke is white ,it's water (head or gasket)
Timing belt will shut it off completely.
Can't see any way the starter could have anything to do with it.
However if it has a head gasket problem,hydrostatic lock can
make a good starter look bad(,water will not compress like air)
so if there is water in a cylinder the engine won't turn over.
If a head gasket is bad there will be white smoke out the
tailpipe and bubbles coming out of the radiator (cap off while
cold)

My 1996 chevy suburban wont start


If you plugged the original leak (which sounds like the head gasket) and then the radiator was leaking, and you are having water coming out of the exhaust, then you need to replace the head gaskets. It sounds like you had a blown head gasket from the start. Here's what to do.

1. Replace the head gaskets (will need intake manifold gasket as it need to come off for this procedure).

2. Replace thermostat, radiator cap (if radiator is still good)

3. Replace water pump; the water pump may have stopped working (mechanical), which in turn caused the pressure to build an blow the head gasket (the cause of the pump would be a bad thermostat. If the truck was overheating, then the thermostat was bad to begin with, then the pump, then the head gasket, so then the only place left for the water to go is out the exhaust.

Here is a list of replacements:

^ water pump
^ thermostat
^ head gaskets
^ valve cover gaskets
^ radiator cap (if radiator is good)
^ radiator : if leak from cap caused any damage to radiator (should still be good)

**Also check the radiator hoses to ensure they do not have any "bubbles". Hot water over time (with anti-freeze) erodes the inside of the hoses, and begins to "dig" holes and grooves in the hose, which evetually cause leaks. Consider replacing these as well for safe measure.

Please, let me know if you need further assistance.

Where could my 94 honda be leaking water at other than radiator.


Heater hose, lower or upper radiator hose, head gasket,heater core,thermostat housing gasket,engine block,cylinder head (Internally),
water pump.These are few key areas. A coolant pressure test will rule out many of these areas.

WHERE DO I PUT THE TRANSMISSION OIL INTO ON THE ACCORD 1996adn what grad of oil please for the engine.what is it when yo get light brown oilly substance in the water container at the side of the rad.


put honda brand transmission fluid in the transmission fluid dipstick hole, if this is a 4cylinder, use 2.5 quarts to fill, if 6, use 3 quarts. if you are getting brown oilly substance in the radiator fluid reservoir, this usually means you have a blown head gasket, are you having overheating problems. try draining and filling your radiator with new fluid.

Coolant leak throuhg engine head?


The diagnosis is correct, either the head gasket is blown or the head is cracked or both, but in any case the head will have to be planed/machined to insure it is flat, otherwise the new head gasket will leak.
