SOURCE: 96 suzuki vitara - radiator empties but no visible leak

Check the passanger side floor board for moisture this could indicate a bad heater core. Then I would check the engine oil and make sure its not milky looking (head gasket). make sure when you fill it let it run with the cap open with you looking into the cap to be sure is circulating and not vapor locked (air pocket)
hope this helps

I dont think you have an head gasket problem.Check that your therostat is working.Try running the engine without it.Or replace it.I would like to now a little moore about this problem,You dont give enough detail on it.

SOURCE: my 1986 suzuki samurai over heats...i have done

did you have the exhaust system checked? if the cat converter is stopped up it cause a car to overheat also rodding out a radiator doesn't solve the problem. you may have to replace the radiator. hope this helps.

SOURCE: the water boils over and the car overheats within

Look at the coolant and the oil. If either one has the other mixed into it, it is probably the head gasket. If not, it mat still be the head gasket but try this first: Check the car visually for any cooling system leaks. Make sure that the overflow tank tube is not obstructed and the tank itself is not cracked or leaking and the that the cap is in good shape. With the radiator cap off, start the car and let it run, top off the radiator with coolant as necessary. Grab the upper radiator hose every minute or so while monitoring the cars temp. gauge also. The hose should warm up slowly if the thermostat is working and eventually become solid to the touch from pressure. Once it opens, bring up the rpm of the engine(1500 to 1800 rpm) while you top off the cooling system, install the rad. cap THEN let the idle drop down. Feel the upper hose for air bubbles. If they are present, shut the car off, let cool and repeat the process. You may have air bubbles in the system, test and/or replace the radiator cap before you test the system. I hope that works for you.

Hi i have a 93 vitara with water getting into the engine


The coolant getting into the oil? Maybe a head gasket. If a head gasket is done it would be a good idea to have the head checked out for cracks and surface

Suzuki GV burns oil


valve seals will not cause this kind of oil consumption, a scocred cylinder wall or broken piston ring will, not sure on the head gasket, does it have a combustion gases present in the radiator surge tank or bubbles while running? if not the head gasket is probaly ok.
