Question about 1992 Mazda 929

1 Answer

Lots of water

Ok i have a 92 with the 3.0 high miles... coolant bottle stays full all the time doesnt drain anything... when i put water in through the radiator after running it for 10 to 15 minutes in drive i leak a bunch of just water from somewhere in the back of the motor.. iv mirrored it but ant find it.... also my heat doesnt work worth a damn... eventually the car heats up and i just shut it down... when i say it leaks water i mean probably a gallon or so but its not hot to the touch when its running down... any suggestions on what to look for or do i need to take the intake off and get a better look...

Temporaraly bypass the heater core to see if you need to replace it all you need to do is disconnect the hoses to the firewall remove one of the hoses from the engine put the end of the remaining hose on the engine fill with coolant to see if it was your heatercore if not it may be a soft plug it would most likely be located behind the head. good luck

My milage doesnt seem to be accurate it runs high it should have been 20 some miles and it was 77 on my 92 honda accord


sounds like you need a full tune up and throttle body ,or carb. cleaned , could lust have a lot of miles on the internal engine parts, if thats the case, you need a new engine.

Yes it is normal just no hot air


1. When setting the temperature to MAX, blower level to FULL and outside air Vent CLOSED, no hot air comes out after 2-5 minutes?
If YES, when did you last flushed your radiator and is it full?
2. if more than 5 years ago, flush radiator system, instructions are usually in Owners manual. Use a bottle of Radiator cleaner, run egine hot for about 10-15 minutes, carefully open petcock in bottom of radiator to flush out radiator, WARNING, careful as flushed coolant would be boiling hot. As sson petcock is open and water start to flow out, carefully open radiator cap to enhance flushing flow. Use garden hose to fill radiator while flushing until water coming out from petcock is cold and clear.
Once clear, start engine, turn heter full and blower full blast and keep hose in radiator flowing full, leave petcock open until clear water flows out again. Once clear waters comes out, turn off engine,turn off garden hose and let water drain empty radiator. Once it stops flowing out, close petcock snug and put radiator cap on, pull off radiator coolant catch bottle, clean bottle for any debris and dirt. Drain any water, leave bottle empty and put it back onto its place.
3. Fill radiator with 1 gallon (4L) of concentrated coolant, top up radiator until full, fill catch bottle with concentrated coolant, start engine and keep it overflowing until no bubbles comes out and the radiator is fully hot. Once it is flowing good, close and connect everything. Drive with it and keep catch bottle filled as necessarry.
Good luck. Give as vote and good comment if this advise solve youor problem. Thank you.

My low coolant light keeps coming, i replace the Thermostat on yesterday but got in car this morning and light came right back on put water in and drove to work when i got to work cut car off look under...


Low coolant doesnt have anything to do with the thermostat. If the coolant bottle was over filled, it will push out, it needs some air space. only fill it to the full line. If the low coolant light is on, but its not really low, the sensor may be bad. Be sure to use the correct coolant DEXCOOL.

I put too much coolant into my 2001 BMW 330i and need help!!!


Look on the upper hose. There should be a plastic srew and you should have a srew right next to the cap. I had these on my 2000 528i. Hopefully you did not blow up the coolant bottle which is usually the weakest link on these. Blow into the the radiator thru the radiator cap to see if it holds pressure..

If it doesnt then you will need to replace something first. If everything looks ok open the screws, the lowest one first then the upper one. That is if you have 2.

Then you may need to run the engine up to temp then shut the car off and let it cool off. Each time open the bottle and check the level. You may need to do this a couple times or more.

First coulple times you drive the car have some coolant with you in case it starts to overheat. Keep an eye on the temp. Especially in the first several miles.

Heater issues


right beside the degas bottle top thare is a black hose sticking out that has a screw in plug in it that can be removed with a straight screw driver. remove this plug and start vehicle and let it run with heat wide open and on high till a STEADY stream of coolant is presant then replace plug - dont over tighten. this bleeds the heater core.

It is possible that you may have an air lock in the system. You need to drain the rad and remove the upper most heater hose from the heater core and raise the hose up high . Fill the rad until coolant comes out of the heater core pipe. Carefully reattach the heater hose. Fill the rad slowly allowing trapped air to escape.This may take a while. Once the rad is full put a catch basin on the floor under the rad filler neck.Start the car and let it run to operating temperature.Allow the expanding coolant fall into the basin.Once you see circulation in the rad you can slowly top the rad off.once you do this replace the rad cap and fill the reservoir bottle 3/4 ways to the top. Shut the car off and let it cool off filling the bottle as necessary.Hopefully this will cure your problem. Good luck :-)

john, I wouldn't use a 50/50 aintifreeze mix, I would put atleast one full gallon(regular full size bottle) of regular antifreeze in your car and add the rest water until it is full under operating temp. then take it to a local shop and ask them to test the antifreeze freeze level, it should be ok . that is what I run here in Texas and have run the same in colder climates as Indiana and michigan. I say this because if you drained the block out, and add a 50/50 mix and then add water to it, you will dilute the solution even more so and it will NOT be ok when winter comes, it will freeze in your engine block and might crack the block.
