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.

2004 Kia low heat at idle hiway speeds ok


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

Heating system sometime works and sometime does not work.


will try to help. sounds like a low coolant problem,remove radiator cap w/engine running,being very careful,contents under pressure! suggest you start it after it;s cooled down, then proceed with radiator cap removal. you can visually check the coolant level in the radiator this way.as the engine warms, the coolant should start to flow around inside so you can see it moving. top the radiator off with proper coolant,anti-freeze,green.turn your heat on high while waiting on engine to reach it's operating temperature.top or fill coolant level to the top of radiator, replace the cap and check for proper coolant level on tha plastic jug, to the side of radiator,if low fill to warm level, you should be able to see proper coolant level on the side of the plastic jug.if this does'nt repair your problem you may have a bad thermostat in the engine.if you need instructions on thermostat replacement, please post you question for instructions, with engine size, year and make and model of your car and we'll be happy to help!!thank you for choosing fixya.com and we look forward to assisting you in the future.!!

Ive changed out my water pump as well as my fan clutch and thermostat in hopes of solving the issue I am having with my truck over heating. I get NO heat at all coming through and if my car is warm, as...


You need to make sure there is no air trapped in the system. I assume you flushed the radiator when you changed the thermostat. I also assume you installed fresh coolant mixed 50/50 antifreeze and distilled water. I also assume you installed the thermostat correctly with the spring facing the engine. Look on the upper part of the cooling system and the engine for bleeder valves (If Equipped). Now remove the radiator cap from a cold engine and make sure the radiator is totally full. Set the heater temperature control to HOT. Start the engine and look for escaping air bubbles from the radiator. Keep the coolant level full at all times. It will take awhile for the thermostat to fully open so be patient. Once you see no more escaping air bubbles install the cap. Wait about 2 minutes with the engine running and use the bleeder valves to remove any more trapped air from the system. Post back if this did not help.
