Most likely a bad head gasket. Is the coolant coming out between the head and block?
Could possibly be a cracked block or head, but most likely the head gasket.
This is a fairly difficult/expensive repair, may not be worth it on a vehicle this old.

How do i fix an engine which is overheating?


there are only two causes of overheating - and that applies to all engines in existence...

1. insufficient lubrication
2. insufficient cooling

best proceed with cold engine, on level ground

re1. check lubricant level and flow, check lubricant condition for presence of foreign mater or liquid, best, change oil and oil filter.

re2. check coolant level, including overflow bottle, if insufficient - add coolant. check coolant condition and flow. do not close the cap, start the engine, check for presence of bubbles in the liquid while engine is running, if there are bubbles present - it can indicate blown headgasket, especially if distinct smell of fuel is present. switch off the engine and feel top and bottom of the radiator, it should be same temperature or very similar, if it is much colder on the bottom than on the top - there are two possibilities, thermostat is gone and need to be replaced or too much gunk in the radiator and need flushing.

hope this will help you - do not forget to vote...

2007 Chevy Uplander V6 loosing coolant when driving,more when it is really cold outside.


You need to have your cooling system pressure tested. This will let you examine the engine area without the hazards of the engine running. You may have head gasket issues. Depending on the area of the leak, your cylinder compression can actually pressurize the cooling system. When the cooling system pressure exceeds the rating of the cap, the cap seal opens and can blow coolant back into the overflow bottle where it eventually leaks while driving. Check to see if your overflow bottle is full.

Water reserve bottle is emptying and engine is getting how


flushing a radiator is a waste of time and money as blocked cores do not flush. Have a pressure test done on the coolant system and check for external leaks. have a compression test done to check for head gasket and cracked head. Have a flow test done on the radiator and if shows signs of blockage replace the radiator .. Always fill the radiator at the radiator cap and not the reserve bottle. The reserve bottle water will not go down until the engine coolant starts to cool so if it is going down when the engine is hot then you have a bad leak in the reservoir bottle.

My Volvo s60 2001 is running hot and leakin oil


Running hot can indicate a number of problems ranging from low coolant to a defective thermostat to a blown head gasket. A few quick things to look at would be coolant level (look in the overflow bottle or ensure the car has had ample time to cool off before removing any cooling system components, including the overflow or radiator cap). If the coolant level is normal, I would check the engine oil on the dipstick. If it appears milky or foamy, you have likely lost your head gasket. If both of those appear normal, let me know, and I will guide you further.

Volvo had a bad run of radiators from 1999-2001. I have had 4 different models in those years, and all the radiators failed in exactly the same manner and in the same spot. On the passenger side of the radiator, easily seen by looking from the engine to the front of the car, about 8 inches from the top of the radiator there was a split which leaked coolant, not much at first, but it got worse with driving until I couldn't keep coolant in it.

Volvo also has issues with oil leaks, particularly from the cooler attached to the oil pan on the back side of the motor, and from the crankcase ventilation system. I would need to know, specifically, where the oil is coming from, as that will indicate which system would need to be investigated further.

Heater won t heat up


With engine cool, fill bottle with antifreeze coolant. If radiator has a cap remove and fill also. If engine overheats, you will probably need a new thermostat.

Need to change coolant recovery tank can a anyone do it


Yes you can do it yourself

Degas Bottle Removal
  1. Drain radiator (8005) until engine coolant is out of degas bottle. Disconnect radiator overflow hose (8075) and engine coolant vent hose at degas bottle.
  1. Remove power steering oil reservoir retaining screws and position power steering oil reservoir (3A697) out of the way.
  1. Remove degas bottle return hose and clamp. Remove degas bottle retainers and remove degas bottle.
Installation
  1. Position degas bottle in vehicle and install retaining screw and nut. Tighten retaining bolt and nut to 9-12 Nm (80-106 lb-in).
  1. Connect degas bottle hose and clamp to degas bottle.
  1. Position power steering oil reservoir onto degas bottle and install retaining screws securely.
  1. Connect radiator overflow hose and engine coolant vent hose to degas bottle.
  1. Fill and bleed engine cooling system as described. Check for coolant leaks and proper engine coolant level after engine reaches normal operating temperature.

I have to add coolent every day, but i have no visable leak overflow bottle fills, but never empties


It appears that you have a minor leak at where a hose attaches to an engine or radiator pipe. When the engine is hot any leak will evaporate quickly and therefore not be seen. As the coolant heats up it will expand into the overflow tank but once the engine is stopped the extra heat build up will force the coolant out the leaking joint. As the engine cools, the leak prevents the coolant from being sucked back from the overflow tank.

The heater hoses and those pesky little bypass hoses in the cooling system tend to go hard and split if they are over 10 years old. Check all hoses and clamps for a good tight fit and replace any hoses that have gone hard or have become soft and stretched. Those spring type hose clamps tend to be less effective in clamping as the hoses age. Worm drive ones are the best to use.

If unsure take vehicle to a cooling system specialist and have them do a pressure test and more thorough diagnosis.

If problem persists, then it could indicate a problem with the head gasket (Usually caused by allowing engine to become excessively overheated when cooling system has run dry) allowing very hot high pressure combustion gases into the engine water jacket, which super heats the coolant in the engine block, which then boils off, and is released via the cap or any leaks. If the head gasket is really bad it will leak water into the cylinders and into the oil in the sump. This is indicated by an emulsion of water and oil mix on the dipstick. You will also see white smoke (water vapour) from the exhaust.

What are signs of of bad intake gauset on a 99 chevy blazer


depends on whether its leaking coolant or air, since both run through intake. if leaking coolant, you will see coolant leaking from either the front or rear of the intake itself. it can also leak into the engine, causing coolant to mix with the oil. if its leaking air, usually a small leak will present more when the engine is cold, with rough running or high idle. a large leak will run rough all the time, but should be able to hear air hissing if large enough. a vacuum leak from the intake will sometimes present as a check engine light, with codes p0171 and/or p0172, depending on whether the leak is on one side or both.
