Hi Pete

This sounds like the problem could become very serious and engine damage may eventually occur . I am not a mechanic but had similar problems with my Fiat Uno a few days ago (eventually the head gasket blew) and the same scenario with the Nissan Sentra. First check the following: Does the temperature rise more than the normal mark under normal operating conditions? Is the radiator cap in order? When checking the oil dipstick is there any signs of water and oil mixing together? Lastly is there excessive steam coming from the exhaust system? If so, you could be looking at a failed head gasket. Hopefully this is not the case and there is only an airlock in the cooling system thus being solved by checking and fulling and topping up the radiator itself (if possible) with a mixture of water & antifreese whilst the vehicle is idling - and not like i did on the Sentra - by constantly filling up the coolant reservoir and the water "blows" past the cap ......hope this helps.

Good luck.

How do I fix a car that only blows cold air


I doubt it's a heater core.
first look in the radiator and make sure your coolant is full.
not just in the overflow bottle. a bad radiator cap may not allow coolant to refill the radiator . so the radiator can be low and you still have a full overflow bottle

so refill everything and drive it a few miles and see if your heat comes back.

03 beetle 2.0L.new waterpump and thermostat hardly any heat.return line going to bottle has no cooland comming out.the steel fiting on the side of the head seems blocked..is there a check valve in it


Turn on the heat in the car to full heat an full fan. Remove radiator cap start car and continue to fill overflow bottle/tank until heater starts to blow warm that's when the thermostat begins to open. Keep an eye on matter level -make sure it's full. Replace cap a wait 6/7minutes open cap slowly and with rag and gloves it will be hot. Slowly -continue to add more water. Until full. Replace cap. Shut off motor and wait until it cools about 45 minutes. Remove cap again and add water as needed. Then run
Motor making sure it is full. One more thing most important anytime filling radiator always turn heat on first. If not you will ruin your radiator as they don't swell open they swell closed as to not let water move thru it's internal passages.

My Chana Star bakkie 1.3 blows water out expansion bottle and then starts to get hot after about 25 km


Sounds like a cracked head or bad head gasket. Have it checked by a mechanic.

My 2000 Jeep G Cherokee, 4.0L, 2wd ran hot during the drive home...it clattered a little but did not shut off...after getting it home I discovered that the coolant bottle cap had been blown off and there...


The water will keep blowing out this it common on this motor the cylinders compression pushes air into water jacket forcing it back out most likely it is gasket or warped head but there is a reason for this weather it water pump thermostat or cracked radiator

My car not start and when I open my redietor, watter pop out each time I start, is it normal?


when u take the cap off the radiator u will always loose water becareful not to do that when the car is hot u will burn ur self badly . check ur battery it might be dead if u charged the battery and when u go to start it it does not make any noise when u go to start it then its ur starter which needs to be change and they are not cheap but not to expensive shop around for that. the radiator has nothing to do with ur car not starting how ever much water comes out add that same amount back in the same hole it came out. do this with the cap off and the car running pure water in the hole and when the water keeps spilling out that means its full but give it a sec to go down the pipe then cap it qucik make sure its on tight. when u pure water in it if u lost a lot of coolent go to a auto store and buy a 50/50 antifreeze bottle 50% water and 50% antifreeze then u will have no need to had water by a hose or a bottle of water.

Yes it is normal just no hot air


1. When setting the temperature to MAX, blower level to FULL and outside air Vent CLOSED, no hot air comes out after 2-5 minutes?
If YES, when did you last flushed your radiator and is it full?
2. if more than 5 years ago, flush radiator system, instructions are usually in Owners manual. Use a bottle of Radiator cleaner, run egine hot for about 10-15 minutes, carefully open petcock in bottom of radiator to flush out radiator, WARNING, careful as flushed coolant would be boiling hot. As sson petcock is open and water start to flow out, carefully open radiator cap to enhance flushing flow. Use garden hose to fill radiator while flushing until water coming out from petcock is cold and clear.
Once clear, start engine, turn heter full and blower full blast and keep hose in radiator flowing full, leave petcock open until clear water flows out again. Once clear waters comes out, turn off engine,turn off garden hose and let water drain empty radiator. Once it stops flowing out, close petcock snug and put radiator cap on, pull off radiator coolant catch bottle, clean bottle for any debris and dirt. Drain any water, leave bottle empty and put it back onto its place.
3. Fill radiator with 1 gallon (4L) of concentrated coolant, top up radiator until full, fill catch bottle with concentrated coolant, start engine and keep it overflowing until no bubbles comes out and the radiator is fully hot. Once it is flowing good, close and connect everything. Drive with it and keep catch bottle filled as necessarry.
Good luck. Give as vote and good comment if this advise solve youor problem. Thank you.

Water comes out of the over flow bottle(i checked the cap)


make sure you dont over fill the radiator bottle past max, something else to try is run the system with out the cap on for a few minutes at idle to expel any air pockets in your cooling system.

My Smart car is using a lot for water. Refill at least once a day. Don't see any water leaks. Overheat in slow moving traffic.


OK , even though it is hard to know without physically checking the car , but my guess is that possibly you have air in the radiator as first option. So what you need to do is open the temp gauge sensor (located in the back , top of the engine) and please make sure to open the lock and not to lose it as you will need it to tighten the sensor in its place. Open the water bottle and pour water in it and let the water come out from the back (the sensor) , you will see air bubbles coming out with the water , but keep on pouring water till you see no bubbles what so ever. put sensor back in its place while water bottle is full and while water is still coming out from the back to make sure that no air escapes inside with the water.You might need another person to help you pouring water while you are in the back. Start the car and let it warm up and let it run till it gets to 100 temp and watch how fast it comes back to 80 for couple of times , and while car running check the water bottle cap if its loosing any water. Let me know if you need more help Good luck

How to replace thermostat on


Do this when cool. Take radiator cap off, start the engine, turn on heat (not defrost) and now top up coolant to about an inch or 2 from top of radiator, as level drops down, and let vehicle run until the radiator fan comes on, then off, about 3 times, and add coolant as needed while it's running. After that, put radiator cap back on tight & make sure return bottle is filled to proper level. Now try that & see how heat is, temperature gauge etc, and keep an eye on return bottle level for a while. Let me know how it is.
