Well, that makes no sense about the compression. Check for a disconnected sensor. Usually when something like this happens either a sensor that was disconnected from the harness was forgotten on re-assembly or it was accidentally disconnected by an elbow when the hose was being changed. If the radiator hose was the only thing serviced and nothing was wrong before the service I would bet that something got disconnected. Look all around for a loose or disconnected electrical connector.

Good day, i bought a 2005 Volvo s60 2.0t, with a cracked radiator, after replacing the radiator the car still won't start, it has no compression, what can i do? please help


if it has no compression it can be head gasket , cracked head or the rings are soft and not sealing
which ever , the seller knew of the problem of overheated /cooked motor
at worst you are up for a replacement motor

Have 1999 Montero 4M4T 2800 in Costa Rica. How many rows are required in radiator? 3 new head gaskets, re-built motor TWICE, new hose BEHIND motor or radiator, new cap, NOW mechanic says he WON'T put in...


have cooling system pressure tested for external and internal-combustion gas leak that is interfering with the normal engine water circulation. You may have a warped cylinder head. remove and replace thermostat only when it is defective but replace with a new one.

Radiator fluid leaking down back of engine. Car started smelling real bad, then minutes later began to overheat. Immediately pulled over and shut car off. The only visible signs of anything wrong is r


There are welsh plugs in the block and head/s at the rear of the motor. They are prone to rusting out . I would say that there was a leak and the coolant under pressure started squirting out causing the overheat. Boiling water escaped under the cap or the hose or tank split . Unfortunately to replace the welsh plugs the motor has to come out as there is no room to work in. So while the motor is out replace all of them as they will all be rusty on the inside. At this point and from your description of immediately shutting down I would not expect and problems with the engine but to be on the safe side it would not hurt to have a compression test done to check head gasket and for cracks.

Radiator replacement now car wont start


wont crank fast
or cranks ok but wont start.
you must have knocked something loose. a wire or connector.
check carefully.
unless the reason for new parts, was overheating. DID IT?
if yes, compression test is next.
the 3 majors: are
  1. compression over 150psi.
  2. spark on all cylinders
  3. and fueling correct.
1,2,3, on all gas engines. in that order too.
going backwards while fun? is fail.

I have a 1992 Lexus ES300 that wont start. I think the heads are blown. Can I just replace the heads or do I need a whole new motor? It overheated and the radiator hose busted and it hasnt started since....


Yes, you could replace just the heads, bu i don't think they are the problem - it's much more likely that the head gaskets have failed , they are the ones that you should replace first.

Car overheated and lost all power. how do I get it to start?


ENGINE NOT GOING TO START IF GET TOO HOT FIRST THING I WOULD REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP THEN ADD COOLANT UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL CORRECT THATS WHEN THERMOSTAT OPEN UP AND TOP HOSE HOT.CHECK FOR LEAKING RADIATOR HOSES CHECK TOP RADIATOR HOSE CHECK BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSE.CHECK FOR LEAKS AROUND THE RADIATOR LOOK DOWN BELOW COOLANTS FANS CHECK FOR LEAKS AT RADIATOR CORES OR LEAKS AT THE RADIATOR PLASTIC SIDE CONTAINERS. CHECK FOR LEAKS AT WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE AND CHECK FOR LEAKS AT THE HEATER HOSES AROUND ENGINE BLOCK TO THE HEATER CORE HOSES. THERE IS A REASON CAR OVERHEAT.IF CAR OVERHEAT WHILE DRIVING YOU HAVE FAULTY THERMOSTAT OR LEAKING OUT COOLANT OR BLOWN HEAD GASKET.IF ENGINE OVER HEAT WHILE SITTING DURING A LONG IDLING PERIOD.YOU COULD HAVE FAULTY COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OR FAULTY COOLING FAN FUSE OR RELAY.HOT WIRE COOLANT TO SEE IF IT RUNS IF NO REPLACE FAN MOTOR. IF YES FAN MOTOR COULD HAVE FAULTY WIRE OR PCM FAILURE. CHECK ENGINE CRANKCASE IF OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE ENGINE HEAD GASKET LEAKING.

Rdiator hosee came detatched from bottom...replaced it and car wont start timing is not broken..was told engine is getting no compression


Timing may have jumped teeth, belt may be intact, but not aligned correctly. This will give you bad compression readings. That or you have fried the engine.

Motor wont run just just turns over. wont start replaced timeing chain and it backfires through the bottom radiator hose...


backfireing in the coolant system is a sign your head gasket is blown or cracked block or head. Do a compression test ot confirm the integrity of the engine
