Car engine heats up

Hi could you please help, car engine is heating up very fast. It is a Fiat Uno 1100 1997 model. When I remove the radiator cap it looks as if there is either mud or rust water in there. could the person before us have put in the wrong water or is it the termostat. Could I still selvage the radiator. Also oil is leaking from the distributor. I am no mechanic but could I replace the O-ring myself or is it very tricky.

First you need to get the radiator cleaned up and then fill it up with a good quality coolant and not water and for oil leakge you need to get in touch with a mechanic so that he can replace the oil seals, i also have the same problem with the oil leak and i changed the oil seals and its working fine since then.

1) Coolant tank may show full but radiator is low in coolant...Cold engine...remove cap...inspect coolant level in radiator...fill if necessary,,,
2) If #1 is OK, the coolant system has an air blockage...With cold engine remove cap...Start engine...Heat control on high... when thermostat opens coolant AND air will escape from radiator...there will be coolant loss...Wait until all air escapes then carefully replace cap...When engine cools remove cap and top off coolant if required.....saailer

Put new radiator in car, have no heat and car runs hot,still over heatin but fluid level up also battery died to what can I do to solve this headache please help

Common headache ,refill reserve tank and leave cap off ,then restart vehicle with the heat on high and wait until fans come on. You probably just have air in the system which isn't allowing thermostat to open up. Once fans come on you should see coolant level lower and just add additional antifreeze then close cap it shouldn't over heat anymore

Fiat uno 1.7 diesel overheating

under no circumstances should you do away with the thermostat as it controls the flow of water through the radiator to allow correct transfer heat to air transfer.. Best you check other possible causes like blocked radiator cores and fins ===cooling fans not working==. Have a compression test done on the engine to check for head gasket and cracked head. you say that the temp is 32-34 c which is not excessive as where I live the ambient temp reaches 38-40c on a regular basis and diesels handle that easily. Make sure that the radiator is completely full and the cap is in good condition and a good ethylene glycol anti boil will help as well. Leave the cooling system piping alone as it is designed to work ok

Audi A6 2001 quattro 2.8 mysterious over heating

Yes, replace the thermostat. Then you need to 'burp the coolant system'. Your car has all the hallmarks of air in the system, especially a heater that is cold. This is because there is no water in the heater matrix. This is why it overheats. The system must be full and with no air to circulate correctly through the radiator.

Burping involves the following steps.

Remove the lid to the reservoir, remove the radiator cap, fill the radiator to the top, turn heating on full blast, start engine and get to operating temperature, keep topping up. Squeezing the radiator hoses helps. The level will rise and then drop when the thermostat opens. Top up when bubbles stop and the level becomes constant. Put radiator cap on, top up the reservoir and put the cap on that.
