Maybe the head is warped and you need to have it machined.

    Sorry I thought that you were saying that your new head gasket had failed. Yes I agree with your thoughts

  • terry stevens Apr 28, 2015

    I would get a can of radiator flush and follow directions on can, and then reverse flush the radiator. Good Luck.

    oh, yesterday I solved the problem. I changed the radiator cap but nothing so I.v just found out that there was a small leak at the hose which goes to heating core :) now it's working just fine!

02 626 mazda overheat issue


if this is fitted with a viscous fan hub and not electric fans then replace the hub. do the normal compression test and coolant pressure test to check cooling system and head gaskets.

Cooling system pressurizing very badly with my 1997 mazda mx6 1997 with v6 motor,was hoping to print off an engine repair manual ?


Can't help with the manual but it sounds like the head gasket has gone and the pressure is coming from the combustion chamber into the cooling system. unless you have all the right tools and quite a bit of mechanical knowledge this repair would be impossible for most people. Alex.

My 2000 mazda mpv is blowing air into the coolant tank at high revs. removed the thermostat and radiator was cleaned but there is no change


If your getting air into your cooling system, the the most likely cause is a blown head gasket.

98 cherokee had gunky cooling system, got it flushed and temp gauge was reading low afterwards. diagnostic computer said the cooling system circuit had high input so i replaced one of the temp sensors. now...


STOP DRIVING.

Go to a shop and ask for a cooling system pressure test.

After they pump up the coolant system,they will point out is there any INTERNAL or EXTERNAL leak(s).


Internal leak is the first sign of blowing head gasket. (NOT GOOD)

External leak can just a small hose.


Start monitor cooling loss.

Start monitor the oil level

Change the thermostat and gasket.

The temp sensor is cheap. Change it at the same time.

Use 60/40 coolant mix is you has high odometer reading like 160,000+ miles


DO NOT ALLOW the coolant and oil cross mix.

As soon as it mix,you are ready for a majot head gasket repair.


Good luck.

1997 Mazda dies when warm - runs smooth when cool


possibly a bad module------cracked---or???? In any case you may get expansion as engine compartment warms up----module shuts you down. Sometimes really hard to diagnose and just putting in a new module is "spendy"----especially if it turns out not to solve the problem!

Oil getting into radiator/cooling system


the only way for engine oil to get into the cooling system at such a high degree is if you have a cracked block. even a blown head gasket doesn't allow that much oil into the coolant system. if the block was cracked it would be the water jackets around the cylinder walls. even a cracked head would not allow for this to occure. now if you don't have engine oil in the coolant but transmission oil instead via the trans oil cooler this would mean that the radiator has a crack in the tanks along the side where the coils of the oil cooler runs through it,(this only applys to vehicles that have an integral trans oil cooler). another thing that could occure is that the heads are cracked and the coolant is mixing with the oil in the upper oil galleys in the heads and then getting pumped through the intake into the bypass. if this were to occure your vehicle probably would not start at all and even if it did I seriously doubt it would stay running. You stated that you just had the head gasket replaced. well if the heads them selves were warped or the block deck was warped and they were not planed then a new headgasket would not solve the problem to begin with. My suggestion is to take it back to the shop you had do it and have them do it again because i believe someone screwed up because you did not have this problem before so the mechanic did not do something right.

Mazda bongo 2.5 turbo diesel 1996. over heating


no im a mechanic it sounds like that you have an air lock in the cooling system .i am familiar with ford freda and bongo and the design where the engine is is a bit far from the radiator ,so the problem with air locks magnifies.really the solution is just drain the water and refill it slowly while you are pressing and releasing,just repeat the action on the top radiator hose to get rid of any air trapping within the system,it's as simple as that really.you want it to have just water and no air as this will cause a blockage.
