How do I fix poor scouring action on Geberit 320 flush system

My new Geberit 320 flush system has a low water level. Water stays 1 to 1-1/4" below the bottom part of the bowl. It does not remove solid waste well above that, during flushing - poor scouring action. Embarrassing brush-cleaning has to be done by our guests a lot. Not good. I have adjusted the water level in the tank to max. (via the right tower in the tank) but am not sure if how to adjust the left tower so the fill level in the bowl is higher. I adjusted the left tower to both extremes and the water level is still 1" below the main bowl area. How can I get the water level to come up into the bowl about 3" higher, so waste is more likely to hit water like a normal toilet?

SOURCE: coolant level in 03 highlander seems low

The safest thing it to add more, you don't want to run it below the mark at all. this can cause damage in the intensive heat.

SOURCE: over heating

Would have to suggest water pump at this point if all else has failed.

SOURCE: proper method on coolant system flush

Best way is to buy a flush kit. It is an adaptor that you put in your heater hose and can hook up a garden hose to. You cut the hose and put this device permanently in the line. Remove the thermostat, don't put the new gasket in there yet just put the outlet pipe back on and bolt it down. Run the car when cold with your hose running for about 10 minutes with the radiator drain valve open on the bottom of your radiator and the cap loose, water should come out of the drain valve and the radiator cap. This will flush your engine adequately, why waste money on distilled water, save that for topping off your battery. Turn off your engine continue to allow water from your hose to flow as long as you are seeing any thing other than clear water flow until it flows clear. Turn off the hose, put the cap on the flush port you installed. the port stays under your hood and allows you to flush your engine as needed. Let the water drain through the drain valve. Put in a new thermostat, with a gasket this time. Refill with water and antifreeze as directed in your manual. You should be good to go.

SOURCE: 1999 Olds Aurora. Overheats after 10 min.

10 minuts really isnt enough time to even get up to operating tempature much less overheat. I would suspect from what you describe you may have a head gasket problem. compression from the cylinder will leak into the cooling system and push out the coolant. The fact that you have oil residue may confirm this. Does the temp guage read high when this happens or a warning light come on?... im suspecting probably not. There also could be an outside chance of a cracked head or block. most likely not but always an outside chance. Good Luck!!

SOURCE: The antifreeze level is too

Yes you can add water to the max line when the engine is hot or to the other line when it's cold. It's not unusual to loose coolant over time. You can usually find another brand that qualifies for the manufacturers brand. You can get an auto supply store to help select it. Some manufacturers don't recommend an antifreeze with silca as it can damage the water pump.

My car is running hot, and I dont know what to do.


{: ) You didn't mention the model of your vehicle. Anyway, we can try some cooling system basics.
You can begin checking with the things that keep the engine cool.
1. The coolant. Are you using plain H2O? Check the coolant level and also look for signs of coolant leaks.
2. The radiator. Check for obstructions at the radiator area like plastics and debris. Foreign materials could have accumulated on the radiator fins. Clean if necessary.
3. Cooling fans. Check for damages or cracks. Is it operating at expected speeds when it should be? For example, at 106deg it works on low speed, at 110deg it should spin high speed. If it stays on low speed all time or none at all, check the fan relays and fuses.
4. Water pump. Is it noisy? Have you checked the belt? It may be old and cracked, better replace it. If a thermostat is stuck, coolant won't circulate and engine will heat up fast to undesirable levels.

How about the other things that add more heat to the engine?
1. Engine pulleys getting stuck. A/C, water pump, steering pump, alternator, idler and tensioner pulleys.
2. A/C system high pressures on the condenser.
3. Oil level and pressure low
4. Poor engine emissions performance. Engine timing, tune-up, clogged exhaust pipes
5. Stuck brakes or bearings
6. High ambient temperatures
7. Poor wheel alignment, low tire pressures

I hope I didn't miss out on any other more important things to include. Wish you goodluck.

My car is overheating do i just add engine coolant and would that the job?


most likely and lets hope that's all it is, if your loosing a lot of fluid could be a leak, sometimes doesn't show til fluid warms up and the little leaky hole expands, checking levels wouldn't hurt and if your in nice weather conditions you can get home and around locally on just water but you will want to change it to antifreeze before the first cold snap of winter. Good rule of thumb is just go with straight antifreeze coolant so end of season comes and you don't forget that it's straight water by that time. watter freezes and ice is very unforgiving in tight spaces. good luck

Is there special directions to put coolant in?


Welcome to FIxYa.com



How to Fill Coolant

If the coolant system has been flushed, first add 100 percent ethylene glycol in

the amount listed for the appropriate engine application. Then slowly add clean

water to the system until the level of the coolant mixture has reached the base-of

the radiator neck. Wait for two minutes and recheck the level of the coolant

mixture. add clean water if necessary to restore the coolant mixture level to the

base of the radiator neck

When refilling the engine cooling system, add three engine coolant supplement

sealant pellets, GM RN 3634621 or equivalent, and GM approved new Ethylene

Glycol Coolant DEX-COOL GM RN 9985809.

If the cooling system is being refilled ONLY (no flush), a 50 percent ethylene

glycol and 50 percent clean water mixture should be used to fill the system. Fill

the system until the level of the 50150 mixture has reached the base of the radiator

neck. Wait two minutes and recheck the level of the coolant mixture. add a 50/50

ethylene glycol water mixture as necessary to restore the coolant mixture level to

the base of the radiator neck.

Install the radiator cap making certain the arrows line up with the overflow tube.

Close all air bleeds. DO NOT over torque the air bleed valve. The air bleed valve is

made out of brass.

Fill the coolant reservoir with a 50 percent ethylene glycol and a 50 percent clean

water coolant mixture. The proper amount of this mixture to be installed into the

coolant reservoir is listed below:

Add 0.65 liters (0.68 quarts) of a 5010 mixture of ethylene glycol and clean water

to the coolant recovery reservoir.

CAUTION: The low coolant indicator lamp may come on after this procedure. After

operating the vehicle so that the engine heats up and cools down three times. if at

any time the "TEMP' warning indicator comes on. Immediate action is required.

Air bleed vent is at the thermostat house

Why does my 2004 avalanche not heat up when i am


Check the coolant level. in the winter time It will not over heat very easily but vapor locks can occur and low coolant level will do what your describing ...When you drive the water pump is spinning faster causing coolant to intermittently flow through the heater core so it gets warm then cold at an idle.. also a thermostat that is stuck open will also cause this its also in the cooling system, if the cooling system is full I would replace the thermostat..good luck hope this helps

Heater blows hot air when driving but blows cold air when idiling


A low coolant level will do this as well as a thermostat being stuck in the open position cure is to replace the thermostat another cause is low coolant flow through the heater core and could be partially plugged flushing the heater core will fix this condition hope this helps

My 97 sunfire is over heating. What is the problem?


Firstly ensure the coolant level is not low. If it is, top it up with the correct spec coolant.
I assume the coolant level is not low so the problem could be :

1. Faulty thermostat
2. Intermittent blockage in the cooling system which is retarding the coolant flow
3. Faulty water pump.
4. Any combination of the above.

Action.
1. Don't drive the vehicle in this condition - except to get it to the nearest repair shop. Running in this condition may cause expensive engine damage - such as a cracked head - from overheating which could cost more to repair than the car is worth.

2. (a) Have the entire cooling system flushed thoroughly. At the same time replace the thermostat with the correct new factory item.

(b)Whilst this is being done have the water pump removed and inspected. It may also be on it's last legs and require replacement. If it needs replacing you have no choice but to do this work as your engine is history if running on a worn out or corroded water pump which is not circulating the coolant as it should. If you have no record of the water pump being replaced in the past 5 years this should not be overlooked in a car of this age.

If you cannot do this work yourself then entrust it to a quality automotive repair shop.

Ensure the correct coolant is used in the cooling system when re-filling (refer manufacturer spec) and ensure the system is bled of all air. If it is not bled of air after re-filling you will end up with poor coolant flow, hot spots and potential engine damage.

Low Coolant Light


Why is it low? Leaking? The dumbest thing they sell is a 50/50 mix of antifreeze. You are getting 50% water and 50% coolant. Just buy a 100% antifreeze jug add it first and top it off with water. If the water is not low you may hve a bad coolant level sensor. It snaps into the radiator tank and is easy to replace when cold.

Water cooling system problem...


It's possible that the thermostat is defective.
Also check that the overflow hose and resivour are not cracked.
Check the engine oil, if it looks foamy then you may have a cracked head.
