Question about Hyundai Tucson

1 Answer

Our Hyundai Terracan has been overheating when we tow our caravan. Doesn't boil. We don't lose water. Needle just about reached the red. Stopped and lifted the bonnet and the left hand (looking from the front) radiator fan was not working. Prior to this we had the van serviced at two Hyundai dealers and they said everything was ok with system. Of course, they didn't check it when towing the van! Could it be an electrical fault? The needle does drop back to normal after a few minutes as if the fan has cut in later than it should.

Are you towing in overdrive or drive ?. in overdrive hydralic pressure to low for transmission causing strain on transmission which in turn more strain on engine can cause overheating

HYUNDAI TERRACAN LOSING POWER... Hi, I have a 2002 Hyundai terracan that has been losing power. along the highway and straight roads it was fine but on an incline it loses power and now has a job to do...


run the fault codes for an exact diagnosis but from your description of the problem I would be looking at a failing cat converter as it may be blocking up the exhaust system

Overheating coolant boiling out into reserve tank


you have a blown head gasket.. doesn't have to have coolant in the oil for a blown head gasket... if hoses are rock hard when running then you have exhaust leaking into the coolant via a blown head gasket...

Temperature needle stays on the hot , have changed temperature sensor but it still stays on the hot and the engine is not overheating or leaking anything..what is making it stay on the hot


replace the thermostat,, and make sure that the fan engages , just because the fluids don't boil over doesn't mean the temp isn't to high, if your saying that the temp gauge is stuck on the hot setting, and doesn't move even when the car is cold,, thats a different problem,, if thats the case whats the make , model , and year

My 2006 L200 only overheats when I tow my caravan I dont overload it and I dont exeed 60 when I drive around town or on any other journeys it does not overheat and it is not losing water


you are in fact overloading your L200 by towing a caravan,the weight your towing is about 1.5-2 tons which is more than a 1ton truck should be hauling.the extra weight causes the motor to work harder thus run hotter and is why it doesn`t overheat when not towing it.the only common denomenator is you towing the van.thus the van is too heavy for your vehicle to tow without any problem.
