Question about Hyundai Motor 1997 Tiburon
My location is Doha Qatar, I just acquire my 2nd hand 2.0 hyundai coupe 97 and i'm having problem on engine temperature, it goes above the normal temp. almost on the 3/4 of the temp guage, which I don't experience in the previous days that im using it.I'm using it for almost 2.5 weeks now and I'm only driving for about 30km in a day, I have notice the following.
1. When AC is on temp goes up specially in the afternoon. but its ok if AC is off (as of now)
2. Water from the reserve tank is not circulating, no indication that the coolant from radiator goes to the reserve thank.
3. 3rd time today I check the radiator every morning, and I have to refill it with water for almost 500ml.
4. I have to go back en fort to my house from my work for 4 times in a day. I observe that every afternoon going back to work that is the time that my engine temp goes above the normal, same situation in the night when going back home.
I too think you might have a leak from a hose , but check the oil on the dipstick if its whitish or has a lot of bubbles on the stick then you might have a warped head [that could be where the water is going ] i hope its not the head because they can be expensive to fix .

Ok if you have to keep refilling the radiator you may hav a leak check under your car for any coolant on the driveway in the morning, also when you turn on the a/c it draws power from the engine, so what im thinking is that gradually over the day you are leaking coolant once you turn the aircon on its making the engine work harder with less cooling causing it to overheat this is all assuming you are leaking coolant
