Question about Fiat X1/9

Open Question

HI My Fiat X1/9 is overheating and I removed the radiator plug to let the air out...I unscrewed to much and now the plug does not seam to be screwing???? It is a aluminium flange with brass tread at the end, it goes in the radiator on a matching aluminium hole. I cant see the tread and it does not thread. I took reall good care of doing it by hand to make sure I did not cross tread! Thanks Ron

I have a 1991 Yugo GV that I bought for the chassis, it is being converted to electric. I believe this motor and prehaps other items may fit the Fiat X1/9 also.

SOURCE: Overheating fiat seicento

I hope you have managed to solve the radiator problem by now. Seicento seem to suffer from water flow blockage in the heater blower area. I recommend you check the piper behind the carburator and make sure water is flowing. Normally when these pipes are blocked, water will flow back to the expansion tank and start leaking through its cap. You can also open the small screw on the small pipe coming out from the back panel behind the carburator and see whetehr water flows. Also, if the water is heard grumbling when engine is switched off, it is highly likely that the water is not flowing through the heater unit. Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Andrew

If the cooling system has no bleeder valves to vent air, you may have to temporarily loosen a heater hose to get all the air out of the system...Also check to see if there is water in the oil...If there is water in the oil then it could have a head gasket problem..Did you ever replace the thermostat? If it is stuck then it would also cause overheating...Excessive exhaust backpressure because of a clogged catalytic converter could also cause overheating..Also check belt tension and condition. A loose belt that slips may prevent the water pump from circulating coolant fast enough and/or the fan from turning fast for proper cooling...Another thing it could be is a faulty Water pump -- Any wobble in the pump shaft or seepage would call for replacement. In some instances, a pump can cause an engine to overheat if the impeller vanes are badly eroded due to corrosion or if the impeller has come loose from the shaft. The wrong pump may also cause an engine to overheat. Some engines with serpentine drive belts require a special water pump that turns in the opposite direction of those used on the same engine with ordinary V-belts... Also check the Fan -- With mechanical fans, most overheating problems are caused by a faulty fan clutch, though a missing fan shroud can reduce the fan's cooling effectiveness by as much as 50% (depending on the fan's distance from the radiator) which may be enough to cause the engine to overheat in hot weather or when working hard.

Engine overheating 1997 buick park avenue


Hi, heard this a few times. First make sure you fans are coming on if there electrical. If they are electrical, by turning on your air conditioner usually turns on your fans automatically. There is a sensor/coolant temp sensor that tells the fans when to turn on and off by sensing the temp of the water in your radiator. some are located on the radiator. Unplug the sensor and unscrew it. Put the new one in and tighten it down put the plug back on and if that was the problem you should be good to go. PS could also be right by the large hose at the top of your radiator where it goes into the motor. either way when you remove the sensor make sure the engine is cool and the anti freeze is going to leak out so move quick.

1990 Subaru Liberty Overheats


Hi,

I had the same problem with my 1993 Liberty LX. Remove the thermostat (located inside bottom radiator hose engine connection - take the connection off and thermostat is inside). Reassemble (minus thermostat), reconnect bottom hose. Slowly (very, very slowly) refill the radiator and remove the bleed plug ( located beside the top hose connection to the radiator - a black square plug with a phillips head cross in the middle). When the radiator is full and clear water (no air bubbles) is coming out of the bleed point, replace the bleed plug and then the radiator cap.

Run the engine for five minutes (approx) or until normal engine temperature is reached. Allow the engine to cool down and recheck the water level - fill if necessary ensuring that the bleed plug is open and clear water is coming out of that point. Replace Bleed plug and then radiator cap. Run engine for five minutes (approx) and then test dive. If the engine overheats keep filling the radiator until there are no air bubbles coming from out of the bleed point.

This fixed my overheating problem. Good luck and safe motoring.
