If the coolant level is low, the temp sensor may not know the engine is hot enough to need the fans on.
And if the belt gets coolant on it, it could slip causing the charge light to come on. Or the water pump may be locking up.

Please ensure you call an expert bcos you need to change the cylinder gaskets and you should let them have a look at your radiator for leakages.

SOURCE: a/c stopped working,the clutch still engages, fan blows warm, found no fluid leaks

the air blend door inside the heating / cooling unit that sits under the dash is probably not moving. there is an electric motor and control unit that moves the air blend door (assuming you have the electric dial or push button digital controls. some of these vehicles have a valve that shuts off the antifreeze from cycling through the heater and if it remains open then you would get "not hot" but just warm air.

My car's fanbelt broken on high speed and I saw the temperature raised so I stopped immediately before it could overheat but then I saw the water leak out.After replacing the fanbelt I put Water in again...


Hi,
You did well by shutting down quickly.
Why did the water come out when you stopped after the fan belt broke???
Residual engine heat. The engine has fiery explosions going on in the cylinders. Very hot.
Antifreeze flowing through the water jackets of the engine carry this heat away. Fan belt breaks, water pump stops pumping this very hot coolant away, engine temp goes up.
Thus the coolant temp rises enough to boil and push the coolant past the pressurized radiator cap out the overflow onto the ground.
I would recommend a fifty fifty blend of antifreeze and water for coolant. It just cools better.
Not seeing any leaks is very good. Smart thinking on your part saved you money.

I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cheokee and it is overheating when I idol and when I idol the heater is not blowing cold air. It will blow warm air while I am driving down the road. What do you think could be...


Check the cooling fan motor and of course the fluid level. If the temp is changing thru the heater it could just be low on coolant , leaking from ? Two wheel drive have an elecrtic cooling fan only, make sure its spinning up when temp is 3/4. If not its probably the fan motor. Can be checked with a test light .

Mazda323f 1990.heater working bad,and to feet blouing cold air.how to fix.


The heater core can be stopped up or thier might not be enought coolant in the system as it has to be full for the heater to heat. The engine also has to warm up so if the therromstate were opening too much and the engine does'nt warm up the water will be too cold and the heat won't work. Remove the heater hoses at the motor conections and blow them though If they are Ok they'll blow though real easy. The cars cooling system does'nt blow very hard and is stopped up real easy. Blowing though with a garden hose reconnect and refill with antifreeze and your good to go. If it does'nt have enough antifrezze it could be frozen and the ice won't cicculate. If this has happened you may need to put the car in a garage to warm it up drain the light antifreeze coolant and put in good coolant withthe right amount of antifreeze.

I have a 2004 mazda rx8 and I noticed that sometimes when I turn it off I still hear the engine fan running. after 10-15 mins it turns off. is this normal


Check your Antifreeze Level. Is it low? If it is add antifreeze and then check for a leak. Look closely around the radiator. My RX8 was doing the same thing and the leak was at the radiator.

biggest problem with the hondas is they have a bad cooling system, they tend to corrode the fins of the water pump due to the reaction between the full alloy block and the coolant. you should start there then the fan switch and radiator and thermostat.

Engine will not start after engine over heated 1998 626 mazda 2.5


CHECK ALL OF THE HOSES, LOOK FOR ANY LEAKS OF ANTIFREEZE,CHECK THERMASAT SOMETIMES THEY CAN GET STUCK AND WON'T OPEN SO IT CLOSES UP AND DOESN'T ALLOW ANTIFREEZE TO PASS THREW THE MOTOR AND DOESN'T REACH THE TEMPERTATURE REQUIRED,TRY FLUSHING THE RADIATOR,IF NOT CHECK OUT YOUR WATERPUMP MAYBE ITS NOT WORKING,TRY GETTING FIX SOON IF IT OVERHEATS TO MUCH IT CAN BLOW YOUR HEADGASKET

will pepper swtop a radiator leak
Improvement done by sickofjunk
There are radiator sealants available at many auto parts stores. I personally have never been able to get them to work though another good way to seal a leak if it is on the aluminum part of the radiator is to soder it with silver soder. And no i don't think pepper will stop a radiator leak.
