Is the water pump working and circulating the antifreeze. if it is working, I would flush out the system and replace the thermostat before refilling system. you can buy radiator flush at any auto parts store. you can back flush system through radiator. just follow directions on back of flush bottle. have a good one!!

My engine temperature fluctuates from normal to overtemp. I fitted a new thermostat and it ran perfectly initially then stareted fluctuating again sfter about 10 kms. What is wrong?


I agree that it is probably due to a bad headgasket. Combustion gases leaking into the water jackets of the engine cause overheating. The easiest thing to do is top up antifreeze and have the rad cap off, bubbles should eventually stop coming out if it is only air stuck in the system. If it continues..... you have a bad headgasket. At times the air bubble coming out of the rad/reservoir will even smell of exhaust fumes. Good luck!

2004 honda civic...smell antifreeze ...cooling fans will not turn on


the main problem would be your radiator fans don't turn on. This would cause pressure to build in your radiator causing coolant to flow over into the coolant reservoir. sometimes you might see coolant on the floor your temp gauge should also read much higher than normal. you can connect your fans directly to your battery and drive the vehicle and see if problem still exists. if not then thermo switch etc would need to be checked.

have the alternator checked for out put. have a pressure test done on the cooling system to check for leaks The fluctuating temp gauge may be the boiling water gushing past the sender bulb .

The radiator was emptied out and i want to add antifreeze and water? there are 2 areas that say antifreeze goes here?


  • One is the radiator and the other is an overflow tank. Sometimes anti freeze will back pressure a bit and need somewhere to go and other times the antifreeze gets low in the radiator. That is the purpose of the radiator.
  • Put the antifreeze in the radiator fist and then add to the reservoir. Pay attention to the cold/hot level fill on the overfill tank.
  • You need to find out where all that antifreeze went to if the radiator was empth. Pull the dipstick and look for a chocolate milk look on the oil. This would be a head gasket or a cracked head.
  • Otherwise keep an eye out for a leak and repair it soon.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

No heat slight smell of antifreeze temp gauge stays out of red but fluctuates


in the case of no heat and slight smell of antifreeze i would back flush the heater core and also check the carpet around the heater vents under the dash if the heater core is leaking the carpet may be wet. find the 2 hoses going to the firewall if you start the motor and let it warm up with the heater on 1 should be hot and one should be cold disconnect them and use a garden hose to flush water in the hose thats cold.

if you smell anti freeze you have a leak. an overheating condition is caused by a bad thermostat, a bad water pump, clogged coolant system or air trapped in the line. have the coolant system pressure checked to locate the leak. it is probably very small that's boiling away before you have a chance to see it. and this is why the system appears full.
