Hyundai Tiburon Problems

I own a 03 Hyundai Tiburon that keeps over heating and has no warm air. When I popped the hood it had fluid blown all over the battery and the left side under the hood. I couldn't tell what it was that went out. I talked to a few friends that are mechanics and they told me to replace the thermostat since i had no warm air. So i replaced that and filled it with coolant and it drove fine for 2 days. When i was driving it today it over heated again and when I looked under the hood it had all the fluid all over the place again. My coolant reservoir is full but I have no coolant in my radiator. I'm thinking i have a hose blown out or my radiator took a sh*t on me. Any help would be much appreciated.

Have a flow test done on the radiator as it appears likely that you have blocked cores and the water is not circulating and cooling properly. It is even possible that the heater core in the cabin is also blocked Have a pressure test done on the coolant system to find the leaks.

SOURCE: temperature gauge indicates overheating, but engine not overheating, coolant being push into reservoir.

hi my name is brad i see you are haveing a problem and i think i might know the problem. if you have done all of that to your car and it still over heating you might have a blown head gasket one way to check is to pull your thermostat out and fill your coolant leaving the cap off then start you car let it rrun a few minutes and if you see bubbles the radiator its the head gasket even though you wont have coolant in your oil or out the tail pipe. if you check that and ther is no bubbles i have one other spot for you to check ( dont know if you have the 1.5 or 1.6 sohc ) but if you have the 1.6 sohc with the mpfi you should check on the throttle body at the idle air control valve(IAC) you will see two small line`s that have coolant some times on hondas with high millage the line will fill with crud and that can cause a problem.. if you have any other honda needs please let me know

SOURCE: heater does not blow hot air on full heat setting

the problem is caused by the motor that operates the air temp blend door motor in the heating ducts, it blends air between AC and heater core tro give desired outlet temp.

SOURCE: overheat 2001 hyundai tiburon

Only 2 parts remaining are the thermostat and waterpump. Always start with the thermostat when diagnosing an overheating problem. If the car is overheating constantly under all conditions and coolant is backing up into the reservoir, it's very likely to be the thermostat. If it only overheats at low speed or idling, it's more likely the waterpump.

03 Hyundai Tiburon keeps over heating and has no warm air.


the heater core could be stopped up not letting the liquid circulate or if there is a switch or a thermostat in heater hose it may be broke not letting the coolant flow .radiator cap bad .all these things can make the system lose a little coolant at a time until it is to low to cool then it will run hot & boil the rest out.check these things.i wish you luck all things can be a pain in the astric if you know what i mean
