My bakkie is overheating and losing water. Took it in for a service today. Mechanic claims they can't find water leak. What else could it be?


one item often overlooked in an overheating case is the radiator cap. it won't hold enough pressure to allow proper circulation of the coolant. it is the cheapest part of the cooling system. replace it and then look to the fans or fan clutch and the carpet area in the passenger footwell for leaking coolant in the floorboard from the heater core. test the cooling system with a pressure tester. is there trash or bugs blocking the fins of the radiator?? Is the coolant level proper and the right ratio 50/50 mix

The coolant has to flow thru the radiator to cool the engine. So you could have a faulty water pump where the impeller is not pushing enough liquid thru the radiator.
Or there may be a restriction of air flow thru the radiator.
Or there could be a problem with the exhaust system or something that is causing the engine to produce more heat than normal.

2008 corsa utility overheating & water is boiling & pushing out through the water bottle


I see two possible causes.
1) Something is blocking air from cooling the radiator. Is there any debris like leaves blocking the radiator?
2) Something is preventing coolant from flowing through the engine. Could be a water pump failure.
Make sure your engine old level is within proper range.

Its keeps overheating i change radiator and head gasket and still overheating


Did you also replace your thermostat? If it's stuck closed, engine will overheat.
When you did the HG, did you have head checked for cracks or warpage? A cracked head will cause severe overheating.A warped head may or may not show signs of external coolant leakage. Either of these conditions can occur if overheating is severe enough.
Are your hoses in good shape? An old hose can collapse when it's hot, and restrict flow. Feel them (when cool) for any sign of sponginess.
New radiator cap? The cap provides a seal to pressurize the cooling system.
Finally, how about your water pump? Any sign at the weep-hole of leaking coolant? Your water pump inner seal is bad, remedy is a new water pump. Or maybe the pumps' fins have corroded and not pushing coolant sufficiently. If there is corrosion, get the whole system flushed and start anew.
Pull your spark plugs and look for any sign of coolant in the cylinders. I know it's a pain to keep going back and checking, but you gotta be thorough. Plugs may be blistered white from overheating, but if you get it fixed, they should be alright.
Now, finally, really: sometimes, Randy, just a small air pocket in coolant can cause overheating. So, make sure you bleed the system if it has a bleed screw, or fill, cap loose, run engine till t-stat opens, level in radiator drops, then re-fill, and add coolant to your overflow reservoir to around the full hot mark. Tighten cap, and you are done. Good luck.

Pushing anti-freeze out the resevoir. Changed water pump, thermostat. Temp. gauge does not indicate overheating. Fans seem to be working OK.


Try replacing the radiator cap. A weak cap will allow coolant to leave the radiator and go thru the overflow tube to the reservoir.

Engine overheating-----1994 Olds Cutlass Supreme 3.4 liter v/6


There seems to be an air pocket or no antifreeze in engine block. Try this method disconnect upper radiator hose and pour water directly into hose down into engine block until it full. when its filled reconnect hose and fill up radiator. as the vehicle warms up open bleeder valve on the thermostat housing and release air from system. open slowly and BE VERY CAREFUL WATER WILL BE HOT, bleed until you get a steady stream opening and cosing valve. However if all of this don't work. You may have a bad pump. Good Luck
