ok, its time for a radiator flush. there is major sludge in the internals of this radiator. Make sure the thermostat is in the correct position as well. I've seen many cars come into my shop with the thermostat inserted backwards.

you could have a bad hose, check the upper and lower hoses and hake sure they are not caving in on themselves. sounds like it could either be that or you might have something cloging the hoses. run the engine with the hood open so you have the pressure build up, and look at both raditior hoses. see if they are bulging out as pressuer gets built, or if they cave in .

SOURCE: mazda bongo 2.5 turbo diesel 1996. over heating

no im a mechanic it sounds like that you have an air lock in the cooling system .i am familiar with ford freda and bongo and the design where the engine is is a bit far from the radiator ,so the problem with air locks magnifies.really the solution is just drain the water and refill it slowly while you are pressing and releasing,just repeat the action on the top radiator hose to get rid of any air trapping within the system,it's as simple as that really.you want it to have just water and no air as this will cause a blockage.

SOURCE: overheating on ford bantam

there are three probable causes that may result to overheating one inadequate circulation of coolant within the cooling system. The radiator is clogged with dirt some stems are closed.try to flush the radiator using rad flushing fluid. Second improper bleeding of trap air within the cooling system. Third the water pump blades are worn out inadequate circulation of coolant.

Mazda V6 gas engine no radiator and coolant leaks but keeps on losing its contents causing overheating


Replace the radiator cap with the proper temp range.Check the rubber gasket on the cap used now.If the cap is not high enough pressurewise,temperature will force the coolant out.Rigger sayreplace the radiator cap with the proper pressure cap for that engine/body design combination.

What are the indications that a Mazda R2 Diesel Cylinder Head Assembly sold by a Surplus Company has no cracked or overheated.


Cylinder head cracks are rarely visible, can usually only be found with testing equipment found in machine shops. If the head comes with at least a minimal warranty, you can have the head tested as soon as you recieve it for your own peace of mind. Head testing is generallly cheaper than having to replace the head later.

Hope this helps!

My mazda tribute is overheating alot


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

There are few things that can cause the vehicle to heat. Please check the following to resolve the issue:

- A faulty water pump can cause the car to overheat. If the water pump is faulty the coolant will not circulate properly on the engine which can result to overheating. You will need to have it replaced if that's the case.

- A worn out or damaged radiator hose. Just a small hole on the hose can cause the vehicle to overheat so have it replaced.

- A weak radiator blower motor. If the blower motor is weak it tends not to cool down the engine so have the blower motor replaced.

These are the few things that can cause the car to overheat so please have the following be checked.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I have a mazda bongo brawny 1996 it overheats on longer journeys,the water pump is fine and the thermostat has been removed, radiator flow is fine , no sign of water in oil,


You can not leave the thermostat out. It can in some cars run cold or others the antifreeze will become heat saturated. Both are real bad. Replace the thermostat. You need to check Everything, one by one. The radiator (for clogs), hoses (for damage, pinched), Defective clutch on fan, and water-pump (its new but is the belt slipping), If everything checks out then you may have a clog inside the engine or heads, itself.

Mitsubishi L200 overheating


i have an l200 animal, i started getting the same symptoms, bubbling noises, over heating, water being discharged into the header tank, i had a good look around the engine,there was no oil in the water or water in the oil ( signs of head gasket failure) when the radiator cap was off and i revved hard nothing happened, no dip in water levels and no splashing out. i took the water pump off and the impellor had sheered off the shaft. fitted a new pump and its been fine, maybe all these cracked cylinder heads and warped heads are to do with the engine being run with the fault not being cured.
