Why is my coolant brown


The brown is rust. They did a poor job of flushing. It needs to be flushed with a good acid cleaner. If there are no leaks and it is cooling ok, it will not hurt to run with the brown anti-freeze.

Over heating 1997 Kia Sportage


Does the radiator fan operate properly? The radiator fluid level (checked when the engine is cold) must be 'at the cap' with the reserve tank about half-full. Blow out the radiator core with compressed air (from the engine side) to clean it of bugs and other debris. Does the anti-freeze look green or rust brown? If rust colored, the entire cooling system needs to be drained, cleaned with system cleaner, and refilled again with a 50/50 fresh mixture of anti-freeze and water. If combustion gases are leaking into the cooling system through a bad gasket or warped cylinder head, that will cause overheating. Check the radiator cap for condition of it's seal. Occasionally, the water pump impeller will begin slipping on it's drive shaft causing limited water flow through the system. That is checked by reducing the level of fluid in the radiator to just above the core and temporarily removing the thermostat. You will observe water moving rapidly if the pump is working.

Overheating,reserve coolant tank boiling I have a 2000 Ford Taurus with the similar problem. I had my water pump replaced then this started.


Ford 2000 Taurus

To solve the problem you have the things to do in this order;

) When the engine is cold top off the radiator with fluid. (When the pump was replaced the fluid should have been also)
) Make sure the radiator fluid has anti-freeze in it. This is also anti boil also !
) Add fluid to the overflow reservoir.
) Make sure the drive belt was replaced on the water pump.
) With the engine running, you can add fluid to the radiator for the first minute or so. You want to get air pockets out.
) Replace radiator cap.
) Let car warm up. When it's hot you should get the radiator fan coming on.
) When it get hotter the air-conditioning fan may come on.
) If the fan does not come on, the heat sensor is probably bad.
) If all fans come on, and it overheats, you may have a bad thermostat. Trace the upper radiator hose to where it connects to the engine. That's where it located.

Do not operate the engine when it overheats, You will damage the head gaskets and cause radiator fluid to leak into the cylinders.
If you smell radiator fluid in the exhaust fumes, it may already be leaking.

Dodge 99' Stratus Over Heating


Overheating going down the road is usually caused by a faulty/clogged radiator. There isn't enough flow/cooling effect. Check for debris in the fins, or replace the radiator.
