Do i need head gasket


there are about 8 tests to prove this. and lots of signs.
1: fails compression test.
2: water in engine oil.
3: carbon and oil floating top of RAD filler hole. cap off dead cold
4: constant need for adding AF.
5: steam out tail pipe end, hot engine, fully hot.
6:rad leak down tester fails.
7:the rad blue green tester fails. proves exhaust gasses in RAD.
8: air (seemingly) blasting in to side expansion tank, (combustion gasses actual)
9: engine over heat. and pings. and loss of power.

ill stop here, there are more.

Why is the coolant overflowing when the temp guage gets half way?


well the tank must never be full, when engine is cold
was it? (read operators guide to see methods)
water expands hot, and the tank captures this expansion
that is normal.
what does "until its all gone", mean, what is IT?
there are lots of tests.
the first one, is,
IS the engine overheating,?
try a new rad cap, they are dirt cheap.
and, is the oil or carbon in the RAD neck, cap off , cold engine>?
is there water in the engine oil, milky dip stick end?
same with A/T trans? milk, or pink/red ATF.
is there steam going out the tip of the exhaust pipe on a fully hot engine>? yes/no?
is air and water exploding in to the side expansion tank.?

cold engine
remove rad cap'
fill rad with 50% AF.
new cap back on.
put 50% AF 1/2 way up in to expansion tank(its marked clearly)
start engine , does it overflow now>?

How can i ell if my water pump is failing


over heating has many causes.
what are the signs, just the gauge going high. ?
steam shooting out rad cap. (is the cap even good>?)
side recovery tank, blasting? with hot water and steam.
oil in the RAD neck , (cold engine) RAD=Radiator assembly.
antifreeze "AF" in the engine oil>? (dip stick looks like milkchocolate?
leaks to the ground, from what?? (find it)
does the RAD fan come on , overheated, It must. does it?
is the RAD core clean? outside, ? not packed with bugs and leaves.
the #1 failure part is the thermostat. put in a new one. and cap.
they are cheap . and easy to change out both cap and STAT.
are you running 50% AF? , using the Prestone $2 tool for the test?
AF raises the boiling point of water, to 260?F
the cap holding pressure and the AF both raise it that high.
if car does not over heat, moviing, only, nows that time to say so..
get in car, cold , drive did it overheat with no stop signals?
(moving gives free air flow to the RAD, proving it works)
Use the radiator leak down tool. to see of loop is beached.
Use the Exhaust gas detector tool at RAD cap to see if the head gasket is blown.

how do you know the pump is. bad.
1: it leaks
2: the impeller is dust.
3:ITS pulley wobbles like mad.

my answer, the pump is after all other test pass.
including a RAD core, thermogram
i can check each rad tube 1 by 1, in fact i threat my RAD
as 10 or more tiny radiators (it is)
see 50 mile test here, RAD cores
They get 34f degree tube drops.. each tube must drop or its clogged.
all for a $15 tool and no burned fingers.
measure each tube about 2inch from top of tank and bottom
and both tanks. (this test is very revealing)

How to i add coolant to a 1998 buick century


Open radiator cap and slowly put coolant in top(with car off and cold), fill till the fluid comes to top and let set for a minuite and continue to to fill till full, then start car with cap off and run till guage comes up half way and then guage will come down quarter way and have hot air running on high and feel the temp of air till its hot and then check level in radiator , then put cap back on and fill the resivore to the line it shows.if it was real low then you have a leak somewhere or internal leaks , whitch needs further diagnosis.

1998 Isuzu rodeo running hot. filled radiator & reservoir with water & coolant. There is a oily substance dripping from small hose at the bottom of radiator, dont see any water leaking. Just had...


Replace small hose and clamp, that hose come's from your transmission, goes through another tank in the radiator, to keep the transmission fluid cool, hope this was very helpful.

My car was overheating so i took off the thermostat and replace a hose that was leaking but now car hasn't overheat yet b water comes out through reservoir tank what could be the problem now?


the water is getting to hot even though its not overheating because you need a thermostat to trap the water in the radiator to give the water a chance to cool down then the thermostat opens and the cold wanter enters the motor and the hot water in the motoer enters the rad. to cool down. with no thermostat, this doesnt happen it just circulates and warm up to the temp it warms up to and is at the same temp in motor and rad then to hot will come out the overflow, as a resualt, you will wind up losing antifreeze then wont have enough antifreeze in your engine then will damage your engine.Put a thermostat in and a water pump. fix it right or you will damage your car.

Heater problems


Did you bleed the air oout of the cooling system - Their is a bleeding next to the therostat housing.


1 - When the vehicle is cold remove the rad(tank) cap and top up the level if needed

2 - start the vehicle with the rad cap off and leave the car run until you can see that the therostat has openned(look in tank/rad) to see fuild flow then open the bleeder slowly to let any air out of the cooling system. Once you have coolant flowing out of the bleeder close the bleeder and install the rad/tank cap.

NOTE - Be careful with the engine running and hot Coolant.

You make need to bleeding system 2-3 time to get all the all out. Once all the air is out of the system you problem should be solved. If air returns to the coolant system have the system checked for possible head gasket leaking air into the coolant system
