Question about 2003 Hyundai Tiburon

1 Answer

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

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.

    This and the Elantras are known to have their upper radiator tanks crack run hot. If the Thermostat is good, and installed correctly (there IS a proper way) and the fans are working correctly, I would look for a cracked upper tank. Usually they crack on the side facing the core support. With the car cooled down, radiator cap off, fill the system up and start the car. It should warm up, fans kick on. When the fans kick on BOTH hoses should be warm/hot to the touch. You should also see fluid movement in the radiator.

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

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.

Hyundai Tiburon Problems

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.

Could like a bad throwout bearing but would most likely pop out of gear. It sounds like the plastic cup that mounts right under your shifter is likely broken.
