If the head gasket is starting to go, the the water gets vapourized inside the engine. The water level will go down, sometimes you get white smoke from the exhaust, the car consumes more fuel and has less compression and performances.

If you are lucky, and you check the water you can drive a car with bad head gasket for many miles, before it blows completely and leave you on the middle of a motorway.

If the head gasket is starting to go better to fix it or to replace the car.

The part costs only thirty pounds or so here in UK, but the job is expensive, as you need to take apart the head.
Here in UK you dont pay less than four hundreds pounds, probably a bit more, depending on the garage.

We've have the same problem with ours. We found the fuel canister needed replaces. It's mounted near the back bumper with straps. The part cost us about 125 bucks and was pretty easy to replace. The trick is to get the bolts out without snapping them.

If you have added a leveling kit you need to buy 2" longer shocks. The short beds have this problem with the leveling kits. Mine did the same thing twice and then I removed the leveling kit and it has been perfect ever since.

Where is the thermostat located in the suzuki swift 2008 engine?


OLD post , over one year old.
NO ENGINE STATED.
No country stated.

(are the rad fans, all on full, when overheating?)
they must or it will overheat.
this is first. not thermostat and only takes looking,
most easy answer of all, (no engine stated)
"the thermostat is the hose that gets hot first."

2008 swift, no country stated, no engine.
swift or swift+?
here is the list in 08
1.2 L I4 (petrol)
1.3 L M13A I4 (petrol)
1.5 L M15A I4 (petrol)
1.6 L M16A I4 (petrol)
1.3 L I4 (diesel)


look below and see that just the word "swift"
means ZERO. (in the world wide web)
see M13a stat.

which engine?
gen 3 swift had these engines.
1.2 L I4 (petrol)
1.3 L I4 (petrol)
1.5 L I4 (petrol)
1.6 L I4 (petrol)
1.3 L I4 (diesel)
so which one? never work on any car engine, until you know what's there. if I open my hood and look up, there is a sticker there states ENGINE in this car, but that is USA< other countries, have stickers on fire wall or ?
if in USA the VIN has the engine code, but you never stated country.
suz has like 55 engines. but above is for swift.

Was driving my 1999 chevy venture this morning after 12 miles had no heat & temp gauge pegged in the red. then went down & came right back up. Stopped & turned it off for 20 minutes or so. ...


You are describing a slow coolant leak and the resultant no heat and blockoverheating symptoms. The no heat is because there is insufficient coolant to cycle through the heater core, and the chuggin you describe is the engine indicating serious overheating.
With engine cold, you must add water--not anti-freeze--to the radiator itself, until it reaches the top of the radiator, then start the engine. If you do not have a radiator cap in addition to the overflow bottle (some vehicles don't), you must still add water to the radiator, even if you have to bypass the overflow bottle hose to do it. Add water until no more will go into the radiator. Start engine, let idle until operating temperature is reached. Thermostat should open and a good bit of the water will "sink" into the depth of the radiator. If you have no radiator cap, observe the temperature guage. When it reaches normal operating temp, when the thermostat opens, the temp will drop briefly at first, and you will notice warm air from the heater/defroster.
Once engine is warm and known to be full of water, seal radiator cap and/or system, and let idle for 30 minutes. Use this time to locate the "mystery leak." They can be very hard to find, and some won't leak until after the engine is turned off. During this idle period, observe the vehicle exhaust from the tailpipe as well as looking for actual water leaks: sometimes a bad head gasket can be diagnosed this way; if the exhaust is white and thick like steam, and smells like anit-freeze, you have a more serious problem. It is possible that after the repeated overheating cycles you have endured you may now have both a "mystery leak" and a blown head gasket.
Once leak is located, your next step is to let engine cool completely, drain the water, fix the leak, and then and only then add new antifreeze of the proper rating and ratio recommended by Chevy for your vehicle.
Anytime you drain a cooling system and refill it, it is necessary to check the overflow bottle at least 3 times in the first week after repair to ensure that you have the proper coolant level, and have not either missed another leak or not correctly repaired one. You MUST check it before you drive the vehicle the second time after the first repair attempt because it is normal to need to add more coolant than you added initially after the repair because of air trapped in the cooling system that will only be expelled after the first start/stop heating cycle. If after 1 week of daily normal driving you have only added a little more coolant once, and there are no more problems, you can be very comfortable that you have fixed your car.

2005 sentra 1.8 no heat... checked level.. changed termostat.. blew outlines.. took lines off heater core blew thru them nothing came out but water we used. control on dash from defroster to blowing on...


Hi, the likely problem is a bubble forming in the system, possibly due to a head gasket failure.

Try stopping on a steep incline--does the heater stay warm? If yes, what you have is an air bubble that hangs at the heater hose until pressure from the water pump blows thru it as the engine speeds up. Park on an incline, open the radiator cap, run the engine until the thermostat is open, turn the heater on, crack open any/all bleed ports to release any trapped air, and fill the radiator to the neck. Wait until the level stops dropping and make sure bubbles don't continue to come up. If they do, you may have a blown head gasket that will keep forming these bubbles until you change the gasket.

I have a 2004 Kia Sedona I have replaced the theromostat the fans are comeing on but still overheats I havent had any problems untill yesterday


After replaceing the thermostat,dont fill the radiator or top it off, untill the engine warms up and the thermostate opens, so the system will circulate.From the top, through the radiator, and into the waterpump inlet. And back to the heads, and the intake, cooling and purgining out all the air,or there will be an air pocket. And the motor will over heat,from lack of or the proper amount of coolant, and not enough circulation,for cooling.

My son's car overheated. Went to get some anti


The overheating is caused by the sludge. It is very easy to correct this problem. Remove the radiator cap and open the drain valve at the bottom of radiator. If possible, remove the reservoir and flush out with water. Make sure to get all sludge out of reservoir, then reinstall. Once the radiator stops draining, insert water hose (without nozzle) and turn water on. Keep the drain valve open. Run water through radiator until it runs clear. Once it runs clear, start the engine and let it run while keeping the water running through radiator. Allow engine to run until the thermostat opens up. Continue running water through radiator with engine running until the water from drain runs clear. Once you have done that, turn off the engine. Close the drain valve and refill radiator with proper mixture of coolant and water. Once radiator is filled, start engine and let circulate through engine. Coolant level will drop as the coolant starts circulating. Shut off engine and top off radiator. Fill the reservoir with the required amount of coolant. Testing the coolant at least once a year will help prevent this from happening again. Coolant should be replace a minimum of five years, less if coolant bottle specifies.

How do you flush out the radiator?


You merely start the engine: loosen the radiator drain-valve, radiator-cap, and refill radiator with water as the engine runs(don't allow the engine run to without water in it). Repeat this for as long as thirty minutes or so until only fresh water comes out the drain-hole. Finally, refill radiator with new anti-freeze. You are done! (or buy a radiator-flush from autoparts store and follow direction written on it). (antifreeze are toxic to our environment)

Old Toyota Corolla heating problem and engining stuttering.


you really need to have your cylinder head opened and checked. Your mechanic is right. The cylinder head might have warped due to overheating or might have a hairline crack were water can seep through. You will be lucky if the head gasket is the only problem.
