Two liquids regulate temperature i the car - oil and coolant. you need to check both, as you did not bother to think and provide us with manufacturer,model, fuel type and year, only general info can be provided.

oil - check level and change/top up as required, if change required - change oil filter as well while you are at it. change for type of oil required for your vehicle, oil and filters should be changed every 5000km (3500miles) to 10000km (7000miles), this depend on the condition, driving and age of the engine.

coolant - check level, top up f required.

if oil level is correct, and no loss in coolant either, you need to check coolant flow, start investigation if pump belt is not too lose and tension it if required, cannot do that if pump is driven directly from the shaft. check for thermostat problem and change if required, lastly - check radiator flow and reverse flush if required.

if you are flushing radiator - best is to flush block and heating system as well at same time, drain liquid and re-fill with new coolant.

hope this will help you at least a bit - do not forget to vote... :-)

2001 Mazda MPV overheats. radiator hose doesnt feel pressurised ie very soft to squeeze. when i put coolant in after 5 mins of driving is backflows out of the reservoir and causes heavy smoking from t


sounds like the radiator is blocked either coolant flow or ext air flow through the matrix the thermostat can get ruined when the system overheats so allways change the stat after a overheat problem GET THE RAD CHECKED FIRST if ok check the coolant pump

How many kilogram of oil engineneeds a Nissan murano 2004?


In the United States we don't use Kilograms as a measure of oil we use Quarts. Your country uses Litres wherever you are! THe MUrano uses 5 quarts of oil...you convert it to litres and you get .95 litres = one quart. Just use 5 quarts and all will be OK.

Replacing the thermostat should solve your problem. If they fail they can cause it to overheat. Driving without the thermostat is doable as a temp fix but should not be done for a long period of time.

Have bmw 320i 2001 only 55570 miles. even driving after 10 miles engine get hot. no problems with driving , no warning light but it stays hot even after2 hours. please need advice. car was checked


This bmw is overheating , even after 2hrs, the engine will still be hot after it verheats. the basic thing to do first is to allow the engine to cool down 5-6 hours or even overnight.then check to see if the cooling system is full of coolant. this problem may be caused if lets say the coolant level is low, this can happen if theres a leak in the system. if low fill system and then have it checked for leaks.another problem if the system is not low then you may have a bad thermostat, a bad thermostat will not allow the coolant to flow inturn making engine overheat, the the last common problem could be a bad fan, start in the order i listed as far as the thermostat watch the gauge and feel the lower hose, if the gauge goes to hot and the lowe hose is luke warm or cold and the top radiator hose is hot then the thermostat is bad. the last test is for the fan, if the top hose and the lower hoses are hot and the car is starting to overheat then it may be the fan, see if the fan is spinning, this car may have an electric fan or belt driven fan, if its electric then see if its running, if the fan is not running then testing need to be done to see why, the fuse and the relay will need to be tested and then the fan itself. if the fan is belt driven then you will see if the belt is on the fan pulley and then check the fan clutch, the way the fan clutch works is the fan will run at a slowwer speed than the engine and then when the heat from the radiator gets hot and blows on the front of the clutch this causes the fan clutch to lock up and makes the fan spin faster. check to see if this is happening but if this were to be the problem or if the fan was aproblem the car would not overheat as you are driving rather it would overheat at a stop or in slow traffic because the air flow from the driving would act like a fan as the air flows through the radiator from driving this would cool the engine if it was the fan, but if the car overheats even while moving then it would not be a fan problem but rather the thermostat or low coolant. there is another problem but i would start with these. hope this is helpful.

Overheats ive tried the obvious solutions and it still overheats any suggestions


note if it overheats on the freeway or in city driving. If it overheats soon after you leave the house then in has to be the thermostat. If it overheats at city driving where there are lots of stop and go driving or while you are parked with the motor running, then check the radiator fan function properly. If it takes a while to overheat and tend to do it when driving on the freeway, it is a clogged/dirty radiator. If it looses coolant due to a leak, then it will also overheat. The least likely cause which don't even pertain to newer car is a retarted timing. A retarted timing causes a car to loose noticable loose of power accompanied by overheating. A retartded timing is usually common in older car where timing is adjustable by turning the distributor. Your car is exempt from this.
