Fiat Car Overheating


I am an owner of 1999 Fiat having done 95K KM. Of late it is overheating after I travel about 15 KM with A.C on the temperature gauge rises to slighlty above half. After offing the engine I found that the coolent in the overflow tank starts to boil and starts to overflow from the cap. I had got the fan relays checked. Both Fans high speed & low speed are working fine. Now I end up filling half litre of coolent every week. . Pls help me on this.

1- Open the oil cap, if you see the milky stuff inside the cap then the engine is having a head gasket problem since water is mixing with the oil thru head gasket. You need this fixed ASAP.
2- If there is no milky stuff, you are still lucky.
3- Now you need to check if you have a thermostate or/ and radiator clogged up problem.
4- Take off the thermostate.
5- Reconnect the upper hose.
6- Run the engine
7 Squeeze the upper hose to feel water flowing inside.
8- If there is water flowing, the problem with the thermostate. Put in the new therostate. It will solve your problem.
9- If there is no feeling of water flowing then you have a problem with the water pump or the radiator clogged up.
10- To check if the water pump is working or not. Wait for the engine cool down.
11- Disconnect the upper hose from the radiator.
12- Turn on the engine and continue feeding water thru the radiator cap.
13- If water was pumped out at constant flow, your water pump is good. Change the radiator since it gets clogged up. This is your problem.
14- If water is not pumped out, the problem is the water pump. Change the water pump since this is the culprit.
Since the troubleshooting is involved intensive labor, most shops are just replacing part at your customer expense by replacing one after another. To be ahead of them, you troubleshoot the problem then tell them to change the correct part. Good luck .

Ok, Take the overflow hose out of the overflow tank and opput the end in a glass or jar of water. Start the motor and watch gfor bubbles coming out of the hose in the water.. Little tiny smokey white bubbles mean you have a combustion leak into your cooling system. Possible head gasket seapage.good luck

My car has a knocking noise when my car gets warm and looses power whlie driving.Does not have noise at start up only when I drive about 15 km the sound comes.


You say when it "warms up". The symptoms you are stating sound suspiciously like a serious overheating issue. The engine will clack loudly and lose most of its power when the engine becomes extremely overheated.

I probably can't help you, but "module" is a very generic term and there are a lot of parts that are modules. Could you better describe the part? If you replaced it 3 times, can you give the name and maybe even part number?

Thermostats will stick sometimes. Most are made to open at certain temperatures. In some cases brand new thermostats fail. Try replacing it its pretty cheap probably no more the 10-15 dollars for the part it self its an easy fix also.

Why is my 1999 mitsubishi galant V4 overheating??


Both white smoke coming from the tailpipe and the engine temperature overheating are signs the cylinder head gasket is blown. You should have a block test performed to verify.

the temperature sensor has nothing to do with the overheat unless this car has electric engine cooling fans, does it, don't know AMC cars much, I worked in an AMC dealer in the late 70's and early 80's but we olny sold maybe 5 of this model and never worked on one, sorry.

Bubbling during idling or low speed


you mean 70-80 kph? because in mph that is very fast! check your thermostat, and if its not a problem with the thermostat sticking , it may be a problem with your water pump
