2002 Hyundai Elantra - My car overheated over the weekend and is not holding water or antifreeze.


It is highly possible the radiator has developed a leak in the upper and/or solder joints of the radiator. If it got hot enough it could melt the brazing and/or solder joints. You probably will not be able to see this with just your eyes but it would show up when pressure is built up inside the radiator when driving. Any competent auto shop can run a radiator pressure test to find the problem. Hope this helps.

Ok, g35 coupe 06,52k miles Had over heating problem in april 2010,replaced thermostat, all's well. Now Jan 2011 overheating again, noticed upper & lower radiator hoses collapse, changed thermostat...


Heres a couple of things you can check. Start your car and remove the radiator cap,(before it gets hot mind you) when it reaches norm operating temp, look inside radiator to see if water is circulating. If its not moving, its a bad water pump. Also, youre hoses should never collapse, if they collapse when they get hot maybe you need new hoses? Finally, if those dont work, flush out your radiator. Open the bottom cockpit and use a garden hose and let it flush out the system while the car is running, about 10 mins should do the trick. If the radiator looks clean inside then it doesnt need flushed.

I have infiniti g35,2003 model but it have overheat problem what can i do?


-Make sure your thermostat is working properly, if not, replace it.
-Make sure your water pump is working properly, if not, replace it.
-Make sure you have enough coolant and that it is a good ratio of coolant to water mixture I use 50/50 mix of coolant and water.
-Check to see if your head is cracked or has a leak in the gaskets.
-Check your tail pipe to see if coolant is coming out of the back which will indicate a leak.
-Check the upper and lower radiator hoses for cracks and wear and tear and leaks.
-Replace your radiator cap

These are possibly problems and or solutions, but will better help you understand your overheating problem

Heating problem


If you changed the thermostat yourself and have noted that the lower radiator hose is cooler than the upper radiator hose, you may have installed the thermostat incorrectly or have purchased a faulty thermostat. A lower radiator hose that does not get hot (or as hot as the upper radiator hose) is a direct indication of a faulty thermostat. Please vote for this solution if you found this to be helpful. Thanks,

Car overheating


First, plastic tube may be the overflow vent from the coolant bottle.Check to see where the attached end goes. You are going to have to check engine for coolant leaks (carefully refill system without spilling anything, then look for dripping anywhere. Look for leaks from all hoses, fittings radiator, water pump etc) After checking for leaks, start it up and check again (watch where you put your hands though) While running, check that the fan comes on when the vehicle reaches operating temp.(no fan, check fan motor, sensor & relay) Turn the heat on (does it have heat?) Check temp of lower hose and upper hose. If overheat happens, is lower hose still cold? (likely bad thermostat). If you found a leak, replace whatever is leaking...best insurance is to change thermostat after any overheat. Last, is there any white smoke from tailpipe, does engine run rough? If so, could be a failed head gasket or crack in cylinder head. (at this point last thing to worry about unless there is excessive smoke or rough run or oil in radiator or coolant in oil).
