Good day. I drive a corsa sport 1.6 2004 model and im recently experiencing an overheating problem. I just replace the radiator. It overheat within 15 to 20min. What would be the problem?


So it overheated before you replaced the radiator and continues to overheat? Have you changed the thermostat and attempted to flush the cooling system?

Another item to check would be to make sure the electric cooling fan (assuming your Corsa uses one) is running as the temperature climbs. If your car uses a belt-driven fan, then the fan clutch may be bad or the blades of the fan may be damaged. This assumes no one has removed the fan shroud for some reason.

My 1989 acura overheated and now go thru alot of oil


There's not much you can do short of fixing the engine.
When it overheated, the metal in the cylinders may have warped, and the head gasket may have started leaking.
The oil is being burned thru the cylinders and out the tail pipe.

1989 Oldsmobile Regency 88 - stalls and sputters


Hi All your love, Lucky boy, The vehicle is fairly old and I suspect it has a points and condenser ignition system. Renew the points and replace the condenser. Set the gap to .45 mm and then set up the firing position by loosening the distributor locking base and setting it at 6 degrees before top dead center. I think it is not a fuel problem but instead, ignition timing. Regards John

I bought a 1991 Dodge Spirit for my 16 year old to drive. It overheated the other day after driving on the freeway. I don't think the cooling fan is coming on. Any suggestions?


Possible dead cooling fan? All the fluids topped up? Might be the thermostat is dead/seal is broken. My best bet is the thermostat.

My 2004 Honda Civic just overheated. What could it


it looks like that you cooling fan is not working, check the fan when temperature is up if its not working than check the fuse for the cooling fan, if its ok than check the current at the fan end if you fund the current the fan is faulty replace the cooling fan.

1989 Ford Festiva, keeps stalling as driving.


I had the exact same problem. The cooling fan was failing to come on and thus overheating the engine. Check the cooling fan, cooling fan thermoswitch, and cooling fan relay ( behind drivers headlight ). If you pull the connector off of the thermoswitch the fan will come on whenever the car is in "run"
