Hi,

you could probably get a used one at the junkyard for 1/2 of what you would pay for one new. call around. Dont put any type of sealant or jb weld it, it wont last. Maximas are extremely good cars and are basically a Z in disguise we had an 83 and it would whoop anything. find that guy and make him pay for it!


good luck

Do you put water are engine coolant in radiator


you can put water in the radiator and it will run fine however if your in an area that gets cold enough that requires anti-freeze use the correct water anti-freeze mixture so the coolant does not freeze and crack the engine block or heads.

2005 chevrolet z-71 Truck overheating changed water pump and thermostat


Check for any signs of water leaking to the ground and if you do locate a leak follow the path. There could be a leak from the drain plugs, water jacket freeze plugs, water pump seals, the coolent temp switch, damaged gaskets, or a small crack somewhere in the coolent system. Check all hoses to see if they leaking or loose at clamps and connections. And if you cannot find a leak anywhere. check the radiater core or header tank, if the leak is in the radiater you should remove and replace, or have professionally repaired. Still can't find any leak. Ckeck your oil for water or foam. And if you do see that it is here, it's most likely a head gasket leak.

When topping up my mini cooper do i put anti freeze in the radiator or just water and then top the expansion tank with anti freeze


Hi.

For a little top up simply use antifreeze.

If you need to do a coolant bleed and refill, then depends on the antifreeze you are using. Most products require filling the coolant tank with water and then topping up with 50% antifreeze. Use distilled water. Tap water is mineral and helps corrosion.

Regards.

HOW DFO YOU DRAIN THE RADIATOR OF 2002 3.4l MONTE


it should have a drain plug on the inner bottom that twist out. If not the bottom rad. hose will be fine to remove. I drain the water, and then run water through it with the hose still off. Replace the plug or hose and put in a cooling system cleaner (prestone) and fill with water. Start the car and let run for until it reaches a normal running temp, keep running for 5 min. urn engine off, let it cool and drain water. I then flush it again with water to remove any rust or gunk left in. I do this until I see good clear water running out. Reinstall your plug or hose and fill with (anti-freeze) be sure to get the right anti-freeze, some take a different color. If you use 50/50, it will take 3-4 to fill or 1 straight anti-freeze with mixture of water until full. Good luck

What does the coolent temprature sesor look like on my xreg golf


  • It has a black connector by the cylinder head. Follow the radiator hose.
  • Before doing anything make sure the engine temp is cold.
  • Release pressure from reservoir by cracking the cap open.
  • Jack the car up and place on stands. Place a wide catching device right under the lower radiator hose.
  • There would be a valve you can open and close to evacuate the coolant from the system for servicing.
  • Pull the horse shoe lock from the sensor and replace new o-ring together with the sensor.
  • Reverse procedure when you are putting it back together.
  • Only use 50/50 Filtered water and VW G12 anti-freeze

1996 sunfire heater problem


i had this same problem 3 weeks ago.... i know someone who works for GM and this is a common problem with these cars. under your glove compartment where yout passanger feet will stretch to there is a dash plate, when you remove that look for a plug sticking down with 4 or 5 wires in it. Unplug the connector and there are two 5.5 mm (I think) screws. Not positive on the size. The one towards the front of firewall is tough to get, but that is your blowermoter resister, replace that an you should be fine...1777bd0.gif

Water was used in coolent system with no anti freeze,


Is the water pump now leaking? There are other components that may have been damaged. The freeze out plugs in the engine block are designed to pop out if the coolant is not sufficient and freezes. This is to save the engine block from cracking, which may have happened. U need to get the car in a heated garage, fill system w/ water, check for leaks, and get the car running to again check for further leaks or problems. The radiator/heater core may also have been damaged. Only way to find out is to thaw it out and check it over carefully for leaks. Let me know how u make out.
