If your car ran hot, you may need to check the radiator for a leak. You always need to add antifreeze/coolant when you add water to your car. Check you owner's manual for the type they suggest and the proper mix of water to antifreeze/coolant. I had to get a head on my motor shaved when my car ran hot and later I had to get the hoses replaced. My radiator cap died following my replacing the radiator as it was plastic and when the car overheated it damaged the cap. How long was the car running hot? You don't want to be a penny wize or a pound foolish when it comes to engine overheating problems. You can repair on the cheap now and pay a lot more in the long run. Also, in the future when your car runs hot, you can turn on the heater --yes even when it is hot outside--I recommend opening up the windows. The heater fan will help to dissipate the heat from the car engine. It does work. I hope these help. Also go to a reputable repair shop. It could be your thermostat they can have check valves which get messed up but you need to check to see if it is your radiator or if there is a leak there or in a hose.

1998 mazda millenia will not crank


If the engine overheated and now won't crank, you may have locked it up. If you can't turn the alternator or the crankshaft with a wrench, the engine may be trash.
One of the cylinders could also be full of coolant from a blown head gasket.

Replaced radiator on 2001 mazda millenia. now i see the water in the over flow tank is oily and brown in color.


mcdevito75 here, Sounds like you need the cooling system flushed at a radiator shop, the new radiator insatlled is bringing all the dirt from the engine to the recovery container, the brown your seeing is a bit of rust. Have the cooling system flushed at a radiator shop.

Engine bubbling after cars running


Is the temperature hot? Usually it means your overheating. Check coolant level. If it is good then get the thermostat and cooling fan checked.
