Car overheating


Check for coolant in your oil, you can do this by pulling the dip stick and looking for specs of coolant on the stick, and smelling it. Coolant has a sweet smell. The other thing you want to check is the oil level. If your oil level is higher than full you probably have a blown gasket.

My 92 Honda Accord keeps overheating, losing fluid but I cannot find a leak. Any suggestions?


check the oil and see if it looks like a mocha, creamy looking... Is the vehicle smoking? Is the radiator hoses holding way to much pressure? Try to fill the radiator with water and leave the cap off..... look for bubbles, if it warms up and bubbles are present or smoking when hot with radiator cap on and hot or creamy oil..... Head gasket....

We put a new radiator & thermostat in about a week ago & are still losing water & overheating. Big leak inside front drivers side tire. Is this where the water pump is?


check the color of the oil. if it is white or yellowish you have water in oil which usually indicates a a blown head gasket
check color of radiater coolant for same.if white or creamy/oily you have oil in coolant which usually indicates cracked engine block

White smoke from motor


Checking oil when it's HOT with mask the coolant oil mix formation.
Check the oil when the engine is COLD. If it has creamy/milkshake like oil in the engine crack case then it's a real bad sign.
Check the oil cap when it's COLD. Like for the creamy/milkshake non-oil like cream.
Are you loosing coolant?
Keep a log book on the coolant lost.
Does it over heat or does it the engine ran hotter compare to few months ago?

To pin point a blowing headgasket you will need
1)coolant system compression tester
or
2)chemical reaction test for combustion test gas
If it's the org. engine from 1986,with over 86,000 then blown headgasket is a good possiblity.
Tow it to the shop and let the pro to do the coolant pressure test and combustion gas test.
A full head gasket job with head re-surface (if it can be re-use) is worth it.
Shop around on well estiblished independent shops.
Fix the blown head gasket at the first stage of failure can safe you thousand on a head replacement.

Car needs water re-filled everyday and in the oil it has a creamy colour substance which i have now noticed in where the oil dipstick is too


You need to change your water-pump before it gets your engine damaged. this is only a sign that the water-pump is bad wherein water misses with the oil.

Treat this fast.

rate this too.
