My Audi a4 TDI 02 is overheating I open the water bottle and the water shoot back up from the radiator back into the water bottle


If it did it when you first started the car(cold) , Head gasket is bad. Otherwise , shooting out would normal if the car was hot. If it overheats at idle, look to the thermostat. If it only overheats when driving, look to the water pump.

I have a 96 grand marquis and when I first start the vehicle up and drive the car it has a slight downshifting problem from 2nd to 1st. The problem will stop after a few minutes and shift fine after that...


The transmission fluid/filter is probably dirty and clogged...you can try adding a bottle of Luca Oil Transmission stabilizer fluid...add all of the bottle...you do not need to drain fluid to do this...about $12. a bottle...this is much less costly than paying to have the fluid and filter changed...$99.95 and up...:( The overheating can be something small like a worn out radiator cap, or stuck thermostat...you did not mention that it loses water, or that you have added any. The cap can be tested for free at your local parts store. Hope this helps.

Vw golf losing coolant through the overflow (expantion tank) when cooling down. thermestat changed. not overheating even at high speed. no water in the oil or oil in the water. the oil is normal colour ....


If there is definately no air in the system and everything is working properly have you changed the pressure cap on the expansion bottle? Very unusual but if everything else is ok then it might be worth a shot. Caps have a pressure release mechanism biult into them.

How do adjust my timing on a vauxall astra 2001 1700 tdi the cambelt was changed about 2 years ago and its been a little slow and getting worse and iv got oil in my water tank


The problem may be that the belt is off one tooth. This will cause it to be sluggish. On the oil issue, are you having to add oil or are you just seeing it in the expansion bottle? If so it may just be degraded coolant. Old coolant when it starts to break down causes a build up of tan and or dark brown goo in the bottle. If thats it then have cooling system flushed and bottle cleaned out.

Overheating


replace the cap with the pressure rating recommended by the dealer it is probably over pressurizing the coolant system

Overheating


I think you need to do a cheap and extremely accurate test.Its called a tk head test and it determines wether you have head or head gasket problem.If you could eliminate that part as being the cause then that really only leaves a couple of things left to check.A blocked radiator or an air lock.Maybe a faulty radiator/expansion tank cap not able to maintain correct pressure
