Never put straight water in this will crack your heads. You should be putting the required antifreeze in you can buy the 50/50 mixed antifreeze for your car but find out if you take the old green or the new orange antifreeze. Also if your car is over heating then it might need a new thermostat or you have a leak in a hose that has rotted or your radiator is plugged up which it shouldn't if your car, has been cared for. The thermostat is around $10 at any auto parts store you can have them help you find the right one. And the thermostat is located in the main radiator hose that connects to the throttle body.

If i just put water and no coolant could this make my car over heat


No your car will not overheat, but it is advisable to my 50% coolant on the water to prevent deposits of rust and other debris that may affect the effectiveness of the cooling system.

1991,mazda famila. Overheats time to time. People keep sayin it the head gasket, but u can use it around town its sweet once its out on the open road it overheat. Today did bout 100km, algud, then it...


My best recommendation would be to check the TIMING
and the air/fuel ratio at HIGH RPMs...

An overly lean fuel and/or poor timing ADVANCE
will EACH cause your engine to run poorly,
over-heat and lose power.

Before yielding to "HEAD GASKET" guesses...
I would suggest you check the engine COMPRESSION
and check the spark plugs for EVEN color of the burn...

If all these things look good... your engine might be
WORTH the heavy cost of a rebuild...

BUT
Doing a head GASKET without knowing
ALL THESE THINGS
is just throwing away good
money on a WHIM.

Ok i start my bmw 1992 325i take bleeder screw out top water up to top air comes out then stops but if leave like that it starts over flowing out of plastic tank then heats up bubbling and where the little...


Just did my 95 525i. Most importantly, make sure all of the air is out, then tighten the bleeder. Let it run. If the reservoir is over flowing than it's over full. Keep an eye on the temp. gauge for bout 15 min. If it goes over normal operating temp. you still have air in the radiator and need too bleed more.

If air conditioner system not working cause 1999 Mazda 626 2.0L to overheat


No this wont cause an overheat problem. Check the coolant level , check to see if the fans come on after it heats up. when the car is warming up you can check the thermostat, by touching the top radiator hose, after a few minutes the hose should get hot, this indicates that the thermostat opened up and is working. If it doesn't replace the thermostat. If it doesn't over heat until you start driving , then suspect the water pump. The impellers can slip on the shaft and not have enough flow to keep it cool.

The checj engine light on my 99 pontiac sunfire came on last week and stayed on when i drove only a few short distances. it sat for 4 days and was on again when i drove under 8 miles then finally turned...


first of all, was the water on the passenger side from the air conditioner or a leak (what color was the fluid?)-the cap has to be tight, otherwise it will not hold pressure, so that has to be checked before you set off again-push down as you turn the cap clockwise, and it will not hurt to have water in the system (it actually transfers heat better than antifreeze) but it has a much lower boiling point, so the cap has to be tight. Pay attention to the temperature gauge and do NOT overheat it-it is an aluminum engine and they do not tolerate excessive heat. Take your time, no AC (although the AC being on can keep a good cooling system more stable since the radiator fan is forced on when the AC is running, so you can, within reason, experiment)-no matter what, just don't let it run hot-not worth it.

if you drive directly with a cold engine onto a highway speed road it isnormal for the temp to go high then low its because the thermistat isnt fast enough to keep up with the heat produced. ive noticed all of my cars did this when i lived right on a highway.if it is ok the rest of the time i wouldnt worry about it unless actually overheats

Change the radiator cap, it may be the wrong pressure rating which will cause the coolant to boil at a much lower temperature than designed.
