Sounds like you have a air bubble in the cooling system. Go buy a funnel that you can screw onto the radiator, you should be able to buy it at an auto part store. Then jack the front end of your car up to the point where the funnel is the highest point in the cooling system. Fill the funnel with anitfreeze. Start your car and let it idle awhile. After your car reaches operating temperature, start revving up your car to try and get the air bubble out. A good way to tell that the air bubble is gone is to turn your heat on the hottest setting and use a thermometer to measure the temp of the air. Normal temp that comes from the vent should be around 140 -150 F at idle.

SOURCE: Car continues to run hot

Sounds like you have a defective water thermostat as long as nothing is seen physically leaking when it is warming up in the first 2-5 minutes.

If you are a do it yourselfer, carefully remove the thermostat without damaging the gasket.

Replace it as preventative maintenance if it has not been replaced from 50-95k miles. It can be lower but that is a good range when you replace one.

Don't try to start the car anymore!  You have blown your head gasket.  Take the car to a mechanic and have them check the engine out to make sure you haven't done any further damage to the piston.  If not, have them replace the head gasket and you should be good.  Hopefully it's just the head gasket and you don't need to rebuild the motor.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

make sure thermostat is in the right direction. put a new gasket. try a cleaner and fill radiator or have it rodded out along with maybe your heater core. drain and refill. put fresh oil in it now.

Coolant leak into Timing chain area on my 2002 Grand Vitara V6 engine.


vehicles that have aluminium housings are subject to corrosion making holes and allowing the coolant to escape in your case into the oil. I would be looking for corrosion holes behind the water pump impellor as the turbulance in this area helps the corrosion . You will have to replace the front housing if it is . It is most important to ensure that the coolant is at the correct concentration to prevent this

I have a 93 grand am. It overheated I changed the stat,there are no leaks,no antifreeze in the oil or coming out the exhaust,I hooked the fan up so it runs all the time,yet it still runs hot. any ideas.


It has a blown head gasket between cylinder and water jacket and the lack of water/antifreeze in the oil or coming out the exhaust is not away to test it. You will need to do a compression test on each cylinder. But even if water is not getting into the cylinder doesn't mean it's not going where it's not suppose to be.

What to do with my 2003 Grand Vitara submerged in flood waters


Let the system dry for quite a few days before trying to start, otherwise the computer could get ruined. Most water damages the coil packs and crank shaft position sensor. Hopefully water did not go inside your intake manifold and engine. It may not start. The best thing to do is let it thouroughly dry. Have a diagnostic test done to see if any sensors or circuits got ruined.

Grand vitara radiator over heating


I have had brand new Thermostats that are bad. The way to check a thermostat is to boil it in water and see when it opens. You may need to have your radiator cleaned or roded out. You can also remove your thermostat and see what happens then I would start by flushing the system and see what you get.

Engine oil mixed in coolant


this would more than likely be cause by a bad cylinder head gasket. I would bet 89% this is your problem.
