My 1997 camry overheated. We flushed the radiator, but noticed cracks in the reservoir. Will this be causing the issue, and will repair / repalcement stop the overheating?


The overflow tank won't cause it to overheat. If you have added radiator stop leak just replace the radiator is stopped up.

Water reserve bottle is emptying and engine is getting how


flushing a radiator is a waste of time and money as blocked cores do not flush. Have a pressure test done on the coolant system and check for external leaks. have a compression test done to check for head gasket and cracked head. Have a flow test done on the radiator and if shows signs of blockage replace the radiator .. Always fill the radiator at the radiator cap and not the reserve bottle. The reserve bottle water will not go down until the engine coolant starts to cool so if it is going down when the engine is hot then you have a bad leak in the reservoir bottle.

Car keeps overheating


Assuming the engine is ok, no leaking head gasket or exhaust problem, you need to know if the radiator fan comes on when the engine reaches 225 degrees. It should also come on when you turn the ac on if the ac works.
Its also possible you have air in the cooling system.

2002 Honda Civic is overheating. Anti-freeze goes in to the overflow tank but doesn't return into the radiator. The tank keeps filling up until it overflows. Already changed the thermostat, radiator cap,...


if its an overheating problem the cooling fans may not be coming on.this needs to be checked.it could also be a bad temperature sensor for the computer and its getting the wrong temp reading,thus not turning on the fans.there is also a cooling fan relay(not a problem that happens often).one other thing the impellers on the water pump may be worn out or not turning with the pump shaft.

My 1996 toyota avalon is overheating. There are no leaks, thermostat is new, radiator is new and has been flushed, changed the fan relay. Don't know why its overheating.


Is the fan coming on? If not, possible lower radiator fan switch/sensor? No leaks... So overflow tanks level stays stable? How do you know it is overheating? Elevated temp guage? Engine smells overheated? Both? We need more info.

Why is my buick century coolant light always on


You may want to check your manual. There is usually a light to tell you the coolant level in your reserve or overflow tank is low, and there is another light to tell you the system is overheating due to not enough coolant in the entire system. Nonetheless if either light remains on and you have refilled the overflow/reserve tank it is time to look for a leak. Leaks can be at hoses, in gaskets, and other locations. A puddle on the floor where the car is usually parked can help you locate a cracked hose or loose clamp, an antifreeze smell in your exhaust can help you locate a much worse problem.Often you may detect an antifreeze smell only after the car is warmed up which can be a leak which is running onto an exhaust pipe.

Car is overheating--thermostat has been changed--radiator does not leak but it has had barrs stop leak put in--car does not seem to be getting coolant from the resevoir


Barr's Leak can be used to seal leaks, but if they put too much it can make a car overheat, unfortunately for you.

Try to flush out the system and replace any subsequent leaky parts to properly repair the cooling system and engine.

Hopefully, you don't have a blown head gasket, as this is a very expensive repair.

Good luck to you.

Hi, I recently bought a 1999 Audi A6 2.8 Quattro. I think there is a problem with the cooling system. The Water light came on two days ago and I filled it with water. This morning the light came back on...


It may Have just needed More Water than What you put into it and Took it from the Overflow Tank. This is Very Common. Refill the Overflow Tank and Check the Coolant Level again to make sure that it is Full. If you still see no Leaks, It should be Just Fine. Please Rate my Solution, I need all the Help that I can Get! Thanks!

Heat


You should be more specific.
First the two are not associated. The a/c is run with a belt driven compressor. The heat uses the coolant and the heat from your engine. Check your coolant level in your radiator and overflow tank, top off if need. Look for obvious leaks, make sure your t-stat is opening, maybe replace it. You could have problems with your radiator, the list goes on. Are you overheating? Do you have a temp gauge?
I cant help any more than that from where I'm sitting.
