SOUND LIKE BAD THERMOSTAT REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP..BUT YOU NEED TO MIX 50/50 MIXTURE OF ANTIFREEZE AND WATER IN THE COOLING SYSTEM TO RAISE BOILING TO KEEP CAR FROM OVERHEATING.

99 VW not starting


You need to check the engine all over when the engine over heats it very hard on it and could melt wiring and plastic parts after you check that look at the relays if the fan is out one of the relays may be out and you would need to replace it

1991 ford capri softtop overheating, thermostat found fully open when removed after 3km run temp 120 on gauge. no miss during run no water in oil but appear to have a blockage could this be the pump at...


Most likely is a clogged radiator. Next would be the pump fins rusting off, not allowing pumping. Both reasons would be because antifreeze was not run in the engine over the years, and rust could clog the radiator, and water would rust off the pump fins...I'm still betting on the radiator though...good luck...Chris

Need to put engine coolant in a 1999 Chrysler 300m. The reservoir says it takes a special kind of coolant. What kind? Can I use Prestone 50/50


whar steps do I take after draing the coolant from the radiator. I have a 1999 chysler 300m. Should the engine be running while replacing the coolant. This car does not have a radiator cap to remove. Do I just add the coolant in the resivor while the engine is running?

I have a 1999 ford courier 4x4 turbo diesel which has been overheating, should there be compression in the radiator?


No compression gasses or pressure from the engine running should be present in the radiator. . Remove rad. cap and start the engine, if it burps out coolant right away, this is a good indication of a blown head gasket or a cracked head.

1999 VW Bug Service engine Light


When you say water light comes on, do you mean coolant level, or coolant temp or ? Check coolant level and top off if needed. Bring the Beetle to a parts store, most offer free check of check eng. light. They will plug a hand held scan tool into the cars diagnostic port (usually located under the dash) and 'read' stored engine codes in the cars computer. They can tell you what the codes mean, and suggest what to do. If you have further questions, post them here along with the code numbers.
