Question about 2000 Porsche Boxster

1 Answer

2000 Boxster overheating, blowing coolant out of coolant tank bleeder valve when overheating. This valve seems to stay in the raised position when engine warms up. Also after removing oil cap and covering oil filler hole with my hand I can feel a little pressure building up. No oil/coolant mixing anywhere that I can tell . 500 miles ago replaced belt, water pump and pulleys. Any Ideas ? Thanks Josh4ya

Whatever you do, do not drive. I got the same problem about 4 hours ago and tried to get home. Half way, no oil pressure, overheat, silly noise from the engine.
Take your Boxster to a shop with a truck, you'll save money.

Opened bleeder valve on charger 2.7. Only vapor comes out. Bad pump or thermostat?


Continue to add water until the vapor "lock" is purged of all air. All coolant bleeders are supposed to reside higher than the radiator/coolant filling area...the coolant should flow out of the bleeder valve before tightening the bleeder shut.

My car has heat but not very much and it doesn't blow it out of the vents very well what could be wrong with it?


It could be a few things.
First, check to see if your coolant resivoir has enough coolant.
Next, start car and allow to warm up if the temp does not get to around 190 then your thermostat is bad. If it does then proceed
You may have air trapped in your system and will have to bleed it out. Depending on make of car there are different methods.
Some have you loosen hose at firewall some ha e you raise coolant tank. And some have bleeder valves.

The other common issue is a clogged cabin filter. The owners manual will tell you location and how to change. They are usually on passenger side under dash. You could also have mice nesting in there and clogging the fan. If so u can remove the cover and vacuum it out.

1999 f-150 air blows stops blowing heat blows out cold then overheats


First The heading says 99 Taurus but the question says 99 f-150. Second, are you saying that the engine is overheating? The heater won't work if the level of coolant is low and that would explain overheating. The thermostat controls the temp of the heat, so if it is stuck closed then water can't circulate to the heater and the vehicle would overheat, but this is unlikely.

the other answers seem to concentrate on a non-working heater. Good luck with this problem.

Cooling system


Raise the car front end as high as possible with a floor jack, fill the coolant tank to the top, run the engine until it reaches just short of overheating, shut it down and run water over the radiator, this will burp the air out. Repeat as needed. Don't let the coolant recovery tank run dry during procedure.

Open the trunk of your car. On the passenger side along the firewall, you should see a plastic panel on the carpeted lining. This gives you access to your coolant reservoir tank

2001 porsche boxter engine running hot


My 2000 Boxster developed a pin hole leak in the coolant reserve tank in the rear trunk. The trunk floor is actually raised, which allowed the coolant to go unnoticed, since the carpet never got wet. I would pull back the carpet on the side and see if there is coolant in the trunk area. If so, the plastic reserve tank will run you about $300 for the part. It is a bit of a pain to replace, but something the average home mechanic can do. Only real hassle was the hose clamps in the engine bay were installed before the engine, hence the engine was in the way of the screw head.

2000 Lincoln Ls Heater blowing cool air


You also could have air in your coolant system. You can't just add coolant on these models after you drain the system or let it run low on coolant. The degas bottles on these models also have a flaw, where they crack along a seam. Sometimes coolant will leak, sometimes not, depending on how high the crack is on the bottle. But what it is guaranteed to do is allow air into your system, which can cause havoc with overheating (air surrounds the thermostat so it doesn't open) and keep coolant from flowing, particularly through the highest point in the system: the heater core. There is a heater core bleeder valve attached to a line near the top of the degas bottle (next to the expension line up top) with a plastic, flathead srewdriver face. Turn the heat on high and run the system at idle for 5 minutes. Then open the valve and keep it open until a steady stream of coolant comes out. (It's like bleeding your brakes.) That will clear any air from the system and at least give you peace of mind that this is not your problem. Then run the motor at 2000 rpms, with the heat still on high, for about 5 minutes or until hot air starts coming out. Release the bleeder valve again until a steady stream comes out. Then let the system cool and check your coolant level and fill as needed. I'd pull the degas bottle and inspect it...should have been a recall.

Coolant


Open the surge tank cap and pour the coolant in. At the top of the therm. housing, you'll see a bleeder valve. Start and run the car, make sure the surge tank is full, and crack the bleeder valve until you see a steady stream of coolant come out.
