You have a leaking heater core. You must remove the dash to replace it.Not a job for the unskilled home mechanic in most cases.

SOURCE: Fluctuating Temp gauge - '96 Ford Explorer 4.0

Have the system pressure checked. This is simple and quick. Puts the system under pressure and helps to locate leaks. Check cap too. System needs to maintain pressure.

Some engines have a "Bleed" valve in the head so you can force the air out of the system as you fill it with coolant. May want to chekc to see if yours has one.

\Fluxing gage indicates coolant sometime there and sometimes not. Low level. Sound says the same thing.

Good Luck

SOURCE: 2001 suzuki swift - thermostat replace?

Suzuki thermostats, more often than not, tend to fail OPEN when they have been overheated - which is a good thing! If they failed shut, you would really cook the motor. Change the thermostat. Also, find the cause of the initial lack of coolant.

Water leaking onto passenger side floorboard,soaking the carpet


Your heater core has developed a leak - the wetness on the passenger side carpet is engine coolant
from a heater core leak, or a leak in one of the two hoses connected to the back of the heater core.
Your strategy: disassemble dash down to heater core, determine whether you'll need a new heater
core or new hose (or new hose clamp), then replace the offending part.

There is an oil seal on the gearbox/transaxle input shaft. If this has failed it will leak oil on to the clutch.It might be able to be replaced by just removing the gearbox again to access the seal. Most likely though is, the gearbox will need to be opened up to replace it.

The heater does not work. The fan works fine but no heat is coming through. Does anyone have a diagram of where the on/off valves in the heater hoses is located?


I think you will find there are no valves, and the heater core is simply corroded up so much on the inside that no heat transfer is occurring.

You can try looking around for a new heater core, one from the Chevrolet model will also fit. Installation can be a bear. Or you can try the much cheaper and easier method of disconnecting both heater core hoses and blasting water from a garden hose through it, one way, then the other and see if that knocks anything loose. Gave me another winter of some heat on a Vitara.

Coolant leak in VW Golf mark 5 1.9 TDi auto DSG


There is, however, an air outlet into the driver's foot area. If the heater core is leaking, the air coming through the heater core will carry the droplets into the entire air ducting system. The driver's foot area may be the closest outlet. If it smells like coolant, you need to replace the heater core regardless of where in the cabin the coolant is coming out.

I HAVE A SLIGHT PURRING SOUND FROM THE ENGINE... WHEN I PUT THE CLUTCH IN IT STOPS... ALSO WHEN IM IN 1ST, 2ND AND 3RD GEAR WHEN IM ACCELERATING THERE ISNT A GOOD SOUND FROM IT!! BUT ITS FINE IN 4TH AND...


This would be most likely the first noise of a wearing input shaft bearing. It will only get louder, and eventual failure of the bearing will probably mean catastrophic gearbox failure. It stops when you put your foot on the clutch because the gearbox stops spinning then, and it is quiet in 4th and 5th because there is no side loading (as there is in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd) on the failing bearing. It wouldn't matter what sort of car it was, the gearbox should be overhauled as soon as possible.

2000 Suzuki Swift Clutch Question


A clutch cable doesn't take much to install. Who told you $600.00?? You don't have to take the trans. loose to do this. All you do is unhook the cable from pedal and unhook if from the trans. This job should only take you an hour if you've never done it before. How long has the clutch been in your car?
