Good day. I drive a corsa sport 1.6 2004 model and im recently experiencing an overheating problem. I just replace the radiator. It overheat within 15 to 20min. What would be the problem?

So it overheated before you replaced the radiator and continues to overheat? Have you changed the thermostat and attempted to flush the cooling system?

Another item to check would be to make sure the electric cooling fan (assuming your Corsa uses one) is running as the temperature climbs. If your car uses a belt-driven fan, then the fan clutch may be bad or the blades of the fan may be damaged. This assumes no one has removed the fan shroud for some reason.

Golf mk5 1.9TDI Smokes, misfires and vibrates.... How di i fix it?

No one here can tell you all of the items that will be wrong with the flood damaged car and need replacing.

The car may also have had numerous engine and other problems before it was damaged with flood waters.

Never ever buy a flood damaged car and you now know why. Nor can you rely on others for advice on the extent of the water level in the car. They can tell you anything and probably will. If you did not see the car submerged you really have little idea how much water actually went through it.

Sorry to be blunt but you need to cut your losses and get rid of the car or you will find, as you have found so far, that it is a highly unreliable expensive money pit. Insurance companies don't repair cars like you purchased because the cost of repair would normally exceed the total insured value of the car in its undamaged running state. I don't know why you would think you would be getting value in buying a non running flood damaged 8 year old German vehicle .

Transmission not shifting

Izzie: According to "If you begin having trouble shifting or staying in gear, it is usually an indication that an electrical, internal or external transmission part is worn or damaged." "This is a relatively common problem, and it could be caused by any of a number of possibilities:

  • An internal transmission repair may be necessary if parts within the transmission are worn or damaged
  • External controls for the transmission may simply need adjustment
  • External controls may need replacement
  • Electrical components may need adjustment or replacement" the thing is, because they are complicated and controlled by a computer, you pretty much have to have a transmission person take a look at it.

My fathers HDJ101K VX limited land cruiser got flooded that it reached inside our seats. engine model is 1HD-FTE. so im asking for your help. What should we do first in car? It already has stains on it...

Water damage to a vehicle is much more than just appearances. Typically, if a car is flooded to the point that it gets inside the vehicle, it is considered a total loss. If in the US, his insurance may cover it under the Comprehensive policy.
The problems are two-fold:
1. You will never get the moisture out from under all the carpets and in the frame rails. It will rust much more quickly, because these places were not designed to be rust proof.
2. More importantly, there are so many electronics in a car, and they are hidden in all sorts of unexpected places. Body control modules that control the lights, engine control modules that control the engine, dash control modules that control the dash - the list is endless, and all are damaged by water.
The damage is not always immediately evident either. Like the interior parts not designed to be rust free, the internal electronics will also begin to rust or corrode, and what works today may not work tomorrow, or next week, or next month. Eventually, all flood damaged vehicles are besot with gremlins. Saltwater gremlins usually appear within weeks, freshwater gremlins within years.

Leaking water behind fan

The water pump is directly behind your fan clutch. Most probably, it's the pump. Shaft seal is already worn out (maybe because of damage bearing). You have to replace the whole assembly or replace the shaft, seal, and bearing. These items are within the repair kit that you can buy in parts store.

How to bypass immobilizer

the problem of immersion with a battery connected is that all electrical circuits are affected by electrolysis and power flows everywhere
items like the alternator , ECM , sensors, dash gauges and equipment will all be affected
Transmissions will have water in the oil and engines will have mud in the rings and bearings
to get it operational you will have to replace a number of faulty items and the end result may be extremely costly
Better to claim on insurance if you have it and take the car to the wreckers

1990 dodge b250 318 tbi... pulled codes from ecu... results= 12, 21, and 55. Fuel system is very rich causing flooding and stalling. I would appreciate any input you can provide. I also had a problem...

code 21 is for the oxygen sensor. This controls the mixture of the fuel going into the engine. the sensor may be bad or its connector may be dirty or faulty.

Check for proper engine ground and ground to chassis for dirty or loose connections.

Check these items if problem persists after O2 sensor repair.

If the car was recently flooded, there really isn't a whole lot of things that woudl cause it to stop moving. I would say to accept what your mechanic says and go ahead and change the computer.
