SOURCE: Engine heating up

Is the radiator or overfill jug loosing water over time? Even a small amount under the minimum can cause quicker heatups. Also, start the car and check your hoses. I've seen hoses collapse and cause problems similar to that.

The ambient temperature could also be a factor. When you're cooling the water and trying to keep it below 212; a breeze of 40 degree air is a lot better for the cooling then 90 degree air.

One other thing as well. Being as it is an older car, you may want to try blowing our the radiator. Using an air compressor with an air nozzle. Just blow air through the back (in the engine compartment) through the radiator and out the front. This will clean out the radiator from bugs, dirt, and debris.

Try those ideas and see how it turns out.

SOURCE: overheated engine

Hi i would say have ago at rebuilding this yourself, Get a Haynes Manual for the car and that will tell you everything you need to know, The hardest part for you would be getting the timing correct and tightening the head bolts correctly (all in the manual tho) Look at it this way if it all goes wrong you wanted to get a second hand engine anyway, and you will learn alot in the process, Dont forget if you need any help along the way people are here to help, Good luck if you go for it, Steve

SOURCE: Engine Replacement

I think its much cheaper to overhaul the engine rather than replace it with anew one which is very expensive. The new engine may cost you around RM25K+ where is the cost of the overhaul might cost u around RM4K.Make sure the mechanic is professional enough to do the job.

SOURCE: stalling ,bucking... no lights come

have you tried the VCM (the computer) I have had 2 of these go bad already due to poor design. Water drips on to the unit and then corrodes after time (last one lasted only 2 1/2 years). Since this is the computer that runs the entire vehicle, you will notice many different symptoms.

hope this helps

Coil keeps burning up

I think you might need a coil that has a built-in resistor, the coil you have been using uses an external resistor. ask at the parts store for a resistance type coil. should be the fix 4 ya or it might be a wiring problem standard coil uses the full 12v and after it starts it cuts the voltage down in the run mode. usually done at the starter's solenoid, so if you changed the starter recently it could be wired wrong.
let me know what you find

Timing belt Broke are valves worped?

Hello momma_green: My name is Roger and I will help you. The 2005 Chevy Aveo 1.6 engine is a interference motor. That means if the timing belt breaks.The valves will be bent. I have one in my shop now that the belt broke on it. Bent all 16 valves and damaged all 4 pistons. This is not a forgiving motor. I wish I could tell you good news but I cant. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Serpentine belt broke and the v belt broke. i

How long did you keep driving the car after the belt broke? The engine is cooled by the water pump, the pump works only with the belt.If the cars engine was hot (normal at 212 degrees) and the belt broke that runs the water pump,and you kept driveing even a short distance you could have overheated the engine. If the knock is a deep solid sound the piston connecting rod bearings spun and the engine needs repaired or replaced.Its sad to say but an engine without a water pump is just like a person trying to live without a heart.If the heart stops the person stops.

Old Toyota Corolla heating problem and engining stuttering.

you really need to have your cylinder head opened and checked. Your mechanic is right. The cylinder head might have warped due to overheating or might have a hairline crack were water can seep through. You will be lucky if the head gasket is the only problem.
