You may have already checked this, but if not, I would recommend checking the reservoir for leaks when under pressure (while the vehicle is at normal operating temperature). To do this, let the engine reach normal operating temperature and with the hood open, idle the engine to about 2,500 RPM (which will increase pressure in the coolant system) if there is a leak, you should see it. If it is not a small leak somewhere, you may be looking at a more serious issue.
I hope that you have found this information to be useful, and if I can be of any further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using fixya!

SOURCE: Central locking problem:- doors locking

The central locking system is controlled by the ecu, simply a common fault, disconnect the passenger door terminal to the lock and see what happens if the other doors lock normally then this confirms that there could be a fault in the wiring loom or relay if the doors unlock after locking then its a ecu problem. See an auto electrician
Regarding the water consunption what colour is the oil hope its not cream, radiator cap may need replacing as it could be blowing the water out, if the reseviour bottle is always full then this confirms it..Hope this helps you out

SOURCE: overheating problem

looks like you have done everything but the problem with your car is that the cylider head gasket has gone have a look at the dipstick or remove the oil filler cap if it looks like mayo then 100% head gasket has failed you said no water on the floor so it must have gone into engine only way this can happen is head gasket failing, if you have put lot of water in to the cooling system then your sump will be full of oil water mix.

SOURCE: coolant leaking on a4 2002 1.8t

If the coolant is droping on top of the trans, then it is the coolant flange located at the back of the engine then it is the coolant flange,like the person above mentioned. I had happen to my A4. The part is like $20 i believe if you get it yourself, plus new coolant, VW kind. Get the flange and a new o-ring do not try to re-use. There is a DIY for it if you google it : http://www.audizine.com/forum/showthread.php?t=84054. I chose to take it to a shop it was 2-3 hours labor. Just make sure they know what they are doing. The spot is a pain in the ***, and if you have big hands don't even think about it. Well worth the pay to a shop!

How to know if thermsat need change on Honda accord v6


1. If your coolant temperature is high your engine will overheat and you may have a faulty thermostat . However overheating may also be caused by other issues such as a failed water pump, blockages in the cooling system, a compression leak into the cooling system and other issues.

2. When the engine is fully cold open the hood and locate the top radiator hose running between the top of the radiator and the engine. Start the car and then feel the top hose. It should stay cool for a short time while the coolant gets to operating temperature and then the thermostat will open. When it opens the hot coolant from the engine will flow through the top hose into the radiator and you should feel the hose warm up very fast. This is an indication that the thermostat is operating normally but it is still possible that it is stuck partly open (when it should be fully open) and is impeding the flow of hot coolant from the engine. In that event it would need to be changed.

If you start the engine and you almost immediately feel hot coolant running through the top radiator hose the thermostat may not be closing at all and may be stuck fully open or partly open. It would then need to be changed. If stuck fully open the engine will run too cold some of the time and inefficiently, especially if the outside air temperature is very cold. But if a thermo is stuck fully closed or partially closed this will cause the engine to overheat and engine damage will result.

To properly test a thermostat it really needs to be removed from the engine. Please read the section in the link on Thermostats.

OK this is not be a big problem. You have air in your coolant system. The temperature sensor is not immersed in coolant but is in an air pocket. When the engine is cool remove the coolant filler cap. Inside the car switch the heater controls to maximum. Switch the engine on. As the engine gets warmer squeeze the top rubber pipe between the engine and the radiator. Add more coolant to the filler cap to replace the air bubbles when they are expelled. When the engine is near operating temperature screw the coolant cap on tightly. Keep running the engine and keep squeezing the rubber pipes occasionally to help any air bubbles move. Make sure that the bottom rubber hose from the radiator back to the engine gets hot. Ensure that the fan for the radiator is running. Only when you are sure that no more air is in the system do you switch the car interior heater off. Check the coolant level when the engine has again cooled down and add more coolant if it looks low.

Dear,

your car has got the radiator jammed due to rusting or unwanted ingrediants,

You need to get the radiator and hose pipes flushed out with the cleaning agent for the problem to get solved.

Having trouble with my kia carnival over heating, now my heaters in car are no longer working, what could this mean?


my kia carnival 2002 keeps less heating when the car is in slow speed & when it is fast at 100 KM/H the RPM comes down, there is gear oil at Max & engine oil at max and water is getting low. with this i replaced thermostat, have had radiator pressure tested and was fine, radiator water is full but coolant box is getting empty whilst driving the distance of 100 kms. also when it begins to little overheat or just taking off the speed there is a loud ascending rattling noise which seems to come from the under right side of engine But when it catches the speed everything is smooth. & then you park for an hour the coolant tank is empty.or at low. please tell me what to do.

How to replace the water pump on 1993 oldsmoblie achieva.


2.4 enigine is the harder of the 3 enignes. it will need a timing chain to be removed and a coolant tube in the back of the engine to be removed. this job on the book calls for almost 7 hours.

if its 3.3 or 3100 its alot easier.

3100 is just 4 10mm pulley bolts and 5 or 6 small 8mm water pump bolts.

3.3 is alittle more work, but same concept as 3100 engine. more owkr only cause its in a tighter area.

good luck,
michael
