2003 hyundai elentra overheating and already did alot of standard procedures to fix the problem and still overheats. Car vurrently has 64k on it. Here is the history. Last year it overheated and changed...


The only other thing I can think of is maybe you put in the wrong kind of coolant? Not every type of coolant works in every car. Other than that, try head gasket sealer because if your head gasket is leaking, it can't be a big leak, otherwise you'd have problems right away.

Engine Overheating


It is one of he things you mentioned.
LEAK: Check the water pump itself. The seal might be gone.
CIRCULATION: Check water pump and thermostat.

Coolant not getting to the radiator & top hose has a leak so taped it up but now blows out of the coolant tap sparaying and steaming and coolant level dropping under half


Thanks but coolant/radiator fans are not coming on at all wonder if this is why coolant sensor letting out all the coolant & water when the enginee gets pressurised. Not sure why they are not coming on and also not when the car came back from a 3 hour trip last night. We changed the water aux pump which seemed to help a bit but water still ls leaking but not as badlyy

Upper radiator hose keeps leaking coolant, replaced the cuff ring but still seems to leak after a few days from the cuffed end of the hose. Does it need a new hose?


if it is leaking where it connects to the radiator it might be the radiator itself. take it to a shop and they can pressure test. some shops won't even charge for test.

I have to keep putting water in my car


IF the leak solution was for the radiator then you may have holes in locations you are nit aware of or it may not be enough and you may need to have the radiator replaced. You may want toc heck the radiator cap if it still seals properly as steam may escape from it where it should be recycled back to the cooling system. Check the clamps of the hose and if there are water leaks from the engine which may indicate bad water pump. If you have white smoke coming out of the exhaust you may also have to have the head gasket checked out as you may be burning coolant.

Low coolant temp light


STOP DRIVING!!!!.... if you have no coolant in the system you can ruin your engine.... if there is coolant inside the cabin then it is your heater core that is leaking.... it is difficult ot change on some vehicles becuase it is in the dash but still possible for the backyard mechanic.... you should be able to find one for about $100 but there is alot of labour involved...

2.3l ranger keeps overheating, been through two radiators already.


Hello Ranger Joe, eight months and two radiators is very uncommon. Question, Have you visually confirmed the leak in the radiators or is the leak near the hose connections? Replacing the radiator, cap, water pump, & the thermostat leaves only two others, the hoses and the engine block/heads. Far fitched will be something or somebody poking holes in the radiator.

Coolant warning lights keeps coming on


Hello what i would do replace the fluid level run your car with the heater on hood up watch under your car for any fluid leaking if so try to determin about where it is coming from one of the hoses could have a small hole or a clamps not tight enough the right way is with a pressure checker but this is the best way for non proffesional rule out all hoses clamps and over flow bottle leaks before you start replacing parts goodluck please rate thanks
