    no i replaced the upper and lower radiator hoses, thermostat, water pump, and the little radiator hoses by the thermostat. My fan shuts off while purging my radiator. water boils over before fan turns on and when fan turns on it shuts off suddenly and water boils over.

SOURCE: 1989 mazda rx7 turbo over heating

if our engine run at 82 celcius there no reason its start boiling when you turn it off its normal for temp to raise when you turn off the engine but to start boilling thats mean our temp is higher then 84 degre check our gauge manuelly check the temp with a thermometer directly in the radiator and compare with the gauge that mean the faster you go colder its get so the radiator does its job but what weird it goes up at lower speed so not enought air goes trough the radiator are you missing a front spoiller that redirect the air to the radiator if you raise the boots you gonna have to raise the cooling capaciter of the car check it out let me no. . pierre

hi jasso, I would recommend checking the water pump if you see no flow in the radiator. Make sure when you fill up the cooling system, that you fill it cold, and that the vent screw in the radiator is loose. fill system until fluid comes out the vent screw. tighten the screw, start the car and have someone run at 1500rpm and check for flow.also, make sure that you have your temp setting full hot and blower on middle speed so that you don't trap air in the heater core.

Change the radiator cap, it may be the wrong pressure rating which will cause the coolant to boil at a much lower temperature than designed.

SOURCE: Over heating. Radiator = 1 yr old. Head rebuilt

Try replacing the thermostat first. If it's new with the head job then try removing it altogether and see if that helps. New ones can go bad. Make sure it is installed with the coil down in the engine.
Is there any chance that silicone or form-a-gasket was used in the rebuild especially around a water jacket? Silicone can break off after the part is tightened and could be plugging a water passage.
When you redid the head was there a choice of more than one head gasket and did you compare the new with the old to be sure it was an exact duplicate? I would be extremely suspicious of either the wro ng head gasket or it being up side down.Either of these could block water passages and create your problem. Hope this helps.

I HAVE A 1992 HONDA ACCORD, THE WATER IN MY CAR IS BOILING, AND IT IS CAUSING MY CAR TO SMOKE. JUST REPLACED THE HOSES ON MY CAR 2 WEEKS AGO


The water is boiling because your car is overheating. Does your tempature gauge read hot or warm? Make sure your coolant level is full. If it is and your vehicle still overheats check to make sure your cooling fan is coming on (fan by radiator) you can do this by just letting your car run and waiting to hear it come on. It should come on before your tempature gauge reads hot. DO NOT let your car run until the temp gauge reads hot. These cars have aluminum cylinder heads and can warp causing serious problems. The cooling fan should come on for a few minutes then shut off and continue to do this. If it stays on, first make sure your A/C is switched off, second if it does not turn off and your temp continues to rise then you have other problems. You may have a bad thermostat, sticking closed. The water pump could be bad or a blocked radiator. If your coolant level is good, your fans are coming on like they should then you might try have your coolant system flushed. Those are some things you can try that are simple and not expensive. If they don't work then you'll have to start looking at other items in the coolant system. Hope that helps, gl.

My cooling fans and blower have stopped working on '89 Ford probe turbo; all fuses are Ok.


Do you have the twin cooling fan set up?one is for the engine and the other is for the AC.these can be replace through the aftermarket parts stores. The blower for the heat/ac can be replaced. You can also test these units if your unplug them from the harness,and use jumper wires to supply power and ground.

1989 mazda rx7 turbo over heating


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A couple of ideas you may want to explore:
  • the engine overheating after a shutdown could perhaps be addressed by installing a time delay off on the relay of the radiator fan. The idea is after absence of Ignition B+12 (engine off), the fan/relay should still be energized for a number of minutes so as to cool the radiator;
  • idling the engine for about 5 minutes before shutdown is a good practice. this enable the engine to cool slowly rather than an abrupt change in temperature of the external but the inside is still rather hot;
  • the opening of the thermostat is triggered by the temperature of the water above it not below (where the spring is);
  • in my country, where it is relatively always hot, some mechs remove the thermostat (of course not applicable in cold climates);
  • a more helpful idea would be the installation of an electric water pump in lieu of the mechanical one. There are several after market models. Pls try here, here or here for a start;
  • it is also possible to wire the electric water pump to still run for a minute or more similar to the proposed time delay for the radiator fan above.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
