Does it have an oil cooler under the oil filter? (a lump perhaps half as high as the filter but a bit fatter with 2 rubber water pipes going to it) citroens are well known for these oil/water coolers leaking into the water.

I have a T reg Peugeot 106, the temperature light keeps coming on even thou I've topped the oil up. Any info plz


Topping up the oil has very little bearing on engines overheating.

You need to remove the radiator cap and top up the cooling system with anti-freeze and water mixed to specifications. Note that I mention RADIATOR CAP and not the expansion reservoir cap. Remove the radiator cap with the engine COLD. Once you have filled the radiator, you need to run the engine until it gets to full operating temperature. Some of the water will overflow out until the thermostat opens, then the water level will rise and fall. When it has settled, bubbles have stopped, turn the engine off, top up one last time. Replace the radiator cap and then top up the reservoir tank.

There are videos online, Google 'burping cooling system', and look at the images tab. Here you go.

87 porsche 924s. Cor overheating at idle. Coolant and oil look normal. No smoke. No heat coming out of vents. Replaced thermostat. Still overheats. Seems to have flow but not sure. It seems the heater core...


run the car with the radiator cap off or the expansion tank cap off, which is part of coolant system and is pressurized, not to be confused with an overflow bottle which is not pressurized, and the heater on high. drain some coolant to allow for expansion. look/listen for bubbles. air from the vents should get hot. give it about 20 minutes

Cooling fan will not come


Do you have a expansion bottle if so when running does water flow into. It usually a small pipe ontop are all pipes getting hot is there oily drops in expansion bottle or radiator? Is there creamy gunk in oil filler cap? Does interior heater get hot? Did you check fuse and also what was the reason for changing fan?

Radiator needs topping up


No radiator cap. It has a square box called coolant expansion tank. It will have a cap with an embossed symbol on top of it.It can be opened by unscrewing it. Some models may require that the cooling system be bled of air after refilling. Check your user manual.

take off your oil filler cap check for milky gunk. if ok . refill the expansion bottle to the correct level with 50/50 mix of anti freeze. but your heater on full. leave the cap off the now as you are bleeding the air out of both the radiator core and your heater core when you start to get hot water replace the cap.

How do you put radiator in 1999 hyandai accent


1) Drain radiator by removing cap, and bottom radiator drain bung or bottom hose.
2) Remove top hose.
3) Disconnect the radiator fan's wiring and any temperature sensor wiring if fitted.
4) Remove radiator retaining clasps
5) Disconnect radiator bottom hose.
6) If fitted with an auto box, then remove automatic gearbox oil pipes (Underside)(you might wat to clasp these so they don't leak oil everywhere)
7) Remove radiator expansion bottle feed pipe from top of radiator.
8) Ease out the radiator. If the radiator fan is getting stuck or caught up, then drop the radiator back down and remove the fan first after disconnecting from the radiator body.
9) With new and old radiator placed side by side on a soft surface, change across any components from the old radiator, which didn't come with the new one. These may or may not include such things as: cap, fan retaining screws or clips, bottom radiator seating rubbers, rubber fan shrouding, temperature sensor, top and bottom rubber hoses.
10) Rebuild by reversing the above instructions. Apply silicone pipe sealant to top and bottom hose locations. Make sure you clean and/or replace any heavily corroded metal pipes which connect to the radiator. (Now is also a good opportunity to replace the thermostat to be on the safe side)

11) Fill system with a fresh 50/50 water/antifreeze mix, flush out and refill expansion bottle. Just before you refill the system, turn the interior heater setting up to maximum heat, but do not start the vehicle.
12) Top radiator up to max. Gently massage the top radiator hose to help eliminate air from the system.
13) Once filled, start the car. Pay attention to the temperature. Keep topping up the radiator as bubbles come around the system and the coolant level drops. At the point no more bubbles appear, close off the radiator with the cap. Allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature. If the weather is cold you may want to hold the engine at around 2,500 revolutions to help build heat faster. Keep it running until the radiator fan kicks in, then let it idle for a couple of minutes.
14) Stop the engine and let it cool.
15) Once cool, open the radiator cap and top up again if level is low.

16) Road-test the vehicle. After returning check again for any leaks.


Running the car for the first few days after radiator replacement, check the radiator level and expansion bottle level every day for the first two or three days. This level may drop slightly as any trapped air pockets are pushed out while running. Also, it is possible that any small leaks may begin after adding fresh anti-freeze to the system. If you begin loosing fluid over these first few days, then re-inspect your work and run a cooling system pressure test.

Have 2000 year sedona 2.9 ,blowing water in expansion bottle all


That's what it sounds like, a blown head gasket. Every time the piston compresses it pushes the air fuel mixture into your cooling system through the broken head gasket. Try running the engine with the radiator cap off or lose and look and smell for gas in your radiator overflow tank. Good luck and hope this helps.

Water leak from top of expansion tank.2000 BMW 316i se


The water (coolant) in the expansion tank will rise and fall with the engine temperature. What the expansion tank does is collect and return coolant to and from the engine. When the engine warms up the coolant gets hot, builds up pressure and opens up the radiator cap. The coolant then goes into the expansion tank. Now when the engine cools down the pressure drops in the cooling system and the pressure drop (vacuum) pulls the coolant back into the engine via the radiator cap. The radiator cap allows the cooling system to build up pressure and by doing so increases the boiling point of the coolant, but when that pressure exceeds the caps rating the cap opens and the coolant goes to the expansion valve. The cap has another part to it that when the engine cools down and a partial vacuum is created in the cooling system a "valve" in the radiator cap opens and allows the coolant to be drawn back into the engine. I would look at your radiator cap to see if any gunk or build up is on it, and check the rubber gaskets for cracks. It's easiest just to replace the cap because they are inexpensive and easy to replace (2-10 dollars). The expansion tank should have two hoses on it. The one on the bottom comes from the radiator and the one on the top (possibly part of filler cap) runs down and is open to the ground. That way if it is overfilled or becomes overfilled it will slowly leak onto the ground. When and if you change your radiator cap, make sure the engine is cooled down, remove cap and start engine and turn heater to full blast, full heat. Leave the cap off and let it run until engine warmed up. This should burp out any air pockets that may have happened when coolant was changed. Also top off the coolant in the radiator while it is running. Hope this helps and good luck
