SOURCE: Coolant filling up overflow bottle

You may need to ask AAA to put a radiator pressure tester on the resevoir bottle and pump it up to operating pressure(Pressure cap rating) and see if it over pressurises while it is running at operating temp,rev engine up and down and watch what the testers pressure readings do,it should move up and down in sync with the water pump.If the pressure keeps building i would have to believe that combustion chamber gases are over pressurising your cooling system.Also test the pressure cap is functioning within factory specs.

SOURCE: 2.3l ranger keeps overheating, been through two radiators already.

Hello Ranger Joe, eight months and two radiators is very uncommon. Question, Have you visually confirmed the leak in the radiators or is the leak near the hose connections? Replacing the radiator, cap, water pump, & the thermostat leaves only two others, the hoses and the engine block/heads. Far fitched will be something or somebody poking holes in the radiator.

SOURCE: 2007 Kia Spectra has coolant loss. Pressure test

in this case i would suspect the water pump,it would not really show up in a pressure test ,put a paper liner under the car at night and see if any water shows up on it in the morning,if it is ok, then the water could be lnternal ie the engine is taking the water,but 2007 engine should not have this problem unless it has a very high milage.one more [simple] answer is the coolant leaking from a simple loose conaction and drying up before you see it ,but water leaves a trace so have a good look about the engine for that water mark,please rate this answer.adrian,,,,,,,,,,,

SOURCE: Keep adding water/coolant. Replaced radiator,

Do you know how the head gasket was tested? I prefer the combustion leak detector.This is placed over the fill reservoir and connected to a vacuum source.The cylinder is then filled with a chemical that changes from blue to yellow when combustion gases hit it Additionally a very good way to check for a coolant leak is a UV light.Antifreeze is very flourecent with one of these.

SOURCE: My Granddaughter has a 2003 Honda Civic which has

Hi, its not good news im afraid by you describing that with the coolant cap off and revving the car causes the pressure to build up and push the water back out it sounds to me like the head gasket is on its way out, what you need to do is take it to a garage and dont have a compression test done you need to have a gasses test done, you can buy these yourself if you want to and what it does is this.

its a plastic tube with blue liquid inside it then you take the coolant cap off and place this in its place you then run the engine and rev it up then you squeeze the rubber at the end of the tube and it then sucks the air out of the coolant and through this liquid then if it detects gasses from the engine in the coolant then this turns the liquid green and this is then telling you that the head gasket needs changing.

please dont let it keep over heating as this will cause the cylinder head to warp and you would then need to get it skimmed to make sure its not warped, get the gasses test done as a compression test dont give you a true reading as the engine is not running when they do a compression test.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

I have a Suzuki Every 1999 made, F6A engine. When it runs the radiator fan works normally but suddenly the temperature increases and it starts boiling. When fan connects to continuously, works fine.


welcome to USA forum we dont have this car here, no books
so can wax smart , like we can on USA cars.
so I say generically
can be.
ECT bad.
ECT lies, due to water pocket below, ECT, means low coolant level inside engine, not side water bottle but in engine and RAD.
check compression, yes.

Overheating and losing coolant fluid


In my parts book it calls for a 16lb cap.
You may have damaged the head gasket before the radiator was replaced. Once an engine overheats, the gasket can be stretched and the head warped. The engine could be burning the coolant.

Suzuki F6a engine backfiring and wont start


Most of the time an engine that backfires is out of time. I would
check this first, as this is the problem 95% of the time. It could
also be bad fuel, a bad catalytic converter (rare) A bad coil or igniton module will definatly cause it. A fuel injector that is spraying excessive
fuel out will cause an engine to backfire. Burned or leaking
valves will cause it (rare).

Engine Diagrams


Hello. Here a non-photo diagram. Hope this helps!!!

The thermostat is located on the side of the water pump, the water pump is located just above the a/c compressor, the thermostat is fed coolant from the radiators lower radiator hose.
Thermostat :
1. drain coolant and tighten drain plug ( easier method : remove radiator cap, get big drain pan, place drain pan under lower radiator hose to radiator connection, remove clamp, slowly remove hose, allow coolant to drain into pan, now is a good time to remove radiator hose and clamp from thermostat housing )
2. remove thermostat cover / cap ( easiest to get at this when front of car is supported by jack stands and right hand side lower cover is removed ).
3. thermostat cap is held on by 3 bolts / remove thermostat.

You will notice that the thermostat's air bleed hole is pointing up and lines up with notch in water pump housing,,

ATTENTION :failure to install new thermostat in the correct location will cause engine to overheat.

1. install new thermostat to water pump, make sure air bleed hole lines up with notch, install and tighten bolts, install a new lower radiator hose, fill cooling system.

thermostat # 17670-77E00
lower radiator hose #17854-65G20
hose clamp #09401-36403
upper radiator hose # 17852-65G20

My car's over heating and losing water. 2004 Suzuki Verona. Is this the thermostat?


Yes, it could be the thermostat, but overheating may also be caused by many other things. Ensure engine tune or other mechanical disfunction is not contributing to the overheat problem.
Replace the thermostat, but if overheating persists I suggest you carry out the following checks:-
1) Check coolant system is not leaking fluid due cracked/perished hose or hose fitting, leaking water pump etc,
2) Check engine cooling fan/s are operating as required when engine temp rises above cut-in threshold - check fan control relay is ok,
3) Check for collapsing radiator hose on suction side of water-pump when motor revs raised above idle.
4) Check coolant reservoir pressure cap is serviceable,
5) Check coolant system is properly filled - carry out any bleed off procedure specified to clear any air locks- (ensure heater core coolant flow is turned on).
6) Check condition of radiator core:-
i) for blockage of air flow to (bugs/grass etc),
ii) for core internal blockage to coolant flow,
