REPLACED WATER BOTTLE & CAP. AFTER SHORT DRIVE WHEN ENGINE IS SWITCHED OF PRESSURE BUILDS UP & WATER PUSHES OUT THROUGH BREATHER ON WATER BOTTLE. WATER LEVEL DROPS BELOW MIN. WHAT CAN BE THE...


Hi,lets start at the begining,resons for this can be,firmastat not working properly,fan switch not working properly so fan dose not switch on,waterpump not working properly so not pumping water around properly,radiater got sludge in it so is not cooling properly,or headgasket broken,
first start engine and wait for car to start up then when the tempreture gage gose up to normal running temp lisson for the fan if it dosnt come on proberly temp-switch for the fan,if fan dose come on switch engine off and check that the hoses to the rad are bouth hot,if that is ok,wait for the car to cool down a bit so you can take off the exspantion tank-cap put a cloth or some thing over the cap as there is a lot of presure and hot water,so be carfull not to burn yourself,
when done start car and look to see if the water is moveing around freely if so then the pump must be ok swich engine off,last one take of the oil-filler-cap and look at the oil it should be brown in coulor,if its a musterd coulor then it means the head-gasket has gone,well although ive sied all this thay have a tool on the market wich the garage use to pump presure in the water system wich shows up eney leeks,if you are loseing water apart from the bubbling water that comes out of the exspantion tank that will show it up,I wish you the best and hope its one of the miner jobs.

2001 impala overheating replaced water pump ,thermostat,after driving 6 miles heater stops blowing warm air car overheats?


sounds like head gasket, shes putting pressure out into your rad, check your big hose when idling see if they swell up with pressure,another way to check is to leave rad cap loose.

Peugeot 306 1.4 overheating problem, heater not getting warm, engine is running ok, radiator not getting warm, water coming from overflow pipe on rad/expansion tank, all hoses connected to engine getting...


Hi its the head gasket, you cant see no water in the oil on these engines like you normally can on most oil caps, pull the dip stick out and look on the bottom any sign of yellow gundge will be the head gasket, sometimes it is only a very small amount.

These cars always have the same problem, if i was you I would do the head gasket and waterpump at the same time, water pumps are only about £20 and wont add much to the bill if doing them at the same time.

As there is no water coing out of the bleed niple then it must be air locked somewhere, problem is when they get like this the gasket will blow anyhow.

Hope this helps

I've intrepid car has overheating problem has thermostat, working water pump, and keeps overheating


Might be blown head gasket. Is there oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil? Either of these would tell you that.
Also the exhust can get into the coolant and make the coolant low all the time.
I had two Chrysler products that the exhaust forced coolant out and had a bad head gasket.

Coolant overheating


I'm not a peugeot guy butr the only item in the cooling system that would require a bearing or bushing is the pump...check shaft for side and end play. Only other possibility is that someone recently worked on it and accidentally caused a leak, or found one and used so much sealer that it plugged the radiator (some sealers have a fine powder that resembles what you described)
