Have the cooling system pressure tested to find the leak. Have a compression test done to check the head gasket and for cracks.. Have an accredited mechanic check the noise as there are plenty of places that produce a noise.

hi jasso, I would recommend checking the water pump if you see no flow in the radiator. Make sure when you fill up the cooling system, that you fill it cold, and that the vent screw in the radiator is loose. fill system until fluid comes out the vent screw. tighten the screw, start the car and have someone run at 1500rpm and check for flow.also, make sure that you have your temp setting full hot and blower on middle speed so that you don't trap air in the heater core.

this could also be head gasket related- have your radiator fluid tested for carbon deposits/ blow by from exhaust.

sounds like idler bearings but you have to release the tension to check,Also you can check the rest of the pulleys also at this time. I dont think you have to drop the engine.

yes you will have to remove the timing belt and crank pully. It is not as bad as it looks. You might as well, while you are in there, change the thermostat and new Timing belt and tensioner pully.
The trick I use, (and I have done hundreds of Timing belts) I use a good paint pen to mark the timing belt and gears. make sure to mark it so you know what marks are for what cam and crank. and which direction it goes. then on the new belt crefully transfer the marks. then it goes really smooth and there is no guessing hoping it is properly lined up on the factory marks. and you dont have to line every thing up before you take off the belt either. just mark it and remove it where the motor stopped..If you do it this way, you dont have to worry about trying to line up the cams and crank to there respective marks, just the ones you made, then there is no mistake.

Replaced thermostat water pump overheating seems to have no backflow thru top radaitor hose


The engine gets cool water from the lower hose. And dumps hot water back in the radiator thru the top hose.

The water won't come your the engine until the thermostat reaches the appropriate temp.

After the thermostat opens and the water level drops in the radiator you can fill the radiator.

If you replaced the timing belt and the car has been doing this, it is possible you are 1 tooth out with the timing belt.

How to blead clutch in 2004 holden clubsport


im assuming its a vy clubsport?
Make sure you remove all the old fluid from clutch resevior and clean it out properly.
You will need to raise the vehicle on a hoist or atleast 4 cat stands .
you will need 3 people in total to get the job done correctly.
fill the clutch resevior with new fluid.
get someone to stay under the car to open slave cylinder to release air.
someone to seat to drivers seat to pump clutch pedal.
and someone at resevior all the time to top up fluid.
when bleeding system just pump the pledal slowly when the person bleeding slave cylinder says hold.hold the pedal down with light pressure when the slave is open you will get air and then little fluid .
repeat process until just good flow of fluid comes out ,once this happens you should have a good pedal..
hope this helps you

Changed bad water pump and timing but car is still overheating causes


Overheating is not always caused by a bad water pump or bad engine firing timing.

The most common causes are:
  • faulty radiator cap: steam/water will be escaping from the caps when engine is hot or oveflow tank overflows or empty!
  • crack cylinder head gasket: check when engine is cold thru radiator cap hole for milky oil in water radiator or large bubbles in radiator water after starting engine. Also check if water steam comes out of exhaust.
  • cylinder head itself: same symtoms as for gasket above.
Hope it helps you find your problems.

Overheating


You have an air lock in the cooling system.
Do this: pull upper radiator hose off the radiator leaving it connected to the block, pour coolant into hose until filled ( you might have to do it to the radiator also). Once filled reconnected hose back to the radiator, then fill resevior to proper level. Start car turn heater on full. Let car run with cap off resevior until it starts pulling coolant in. Once warmed up shut car off let cool. Check fluid level again.

Overheating


Check the radiator and make sure that it is full of water. It can fool you sometimes after you made the repairs, and there could have been an air bubble in the system somewhere, and while you thought there was plenty of coolant, there may not have been.

Always keep the radiator cap off the radiator while filling after a repair like this until you know the stat has opened. You will know it has opened when the water level drops, or you feel warm water entering the radiator. Then replace the cap and fill the reservoir.

If you have gotten the stat hot, then I suggest replacing again as they usually fail closed, particularly when over heated.

If the belt is turning the water pump, then it doesn't need to be replaced.
