Tengo un problema con mi malibu al alcanzar la temperatura de 100 grados el anticongelante se tira por el deposito


here, ill google translate this for you.
Question about 1998 Chevrolet Malibu Open Question I have a problem? with my Malibu to reach the temperature of 100 degrees antifreeze is pulled from the warehouse Whether you change temperature , radiator and tank sensor and nothing.


100C? is boiling temperature of pure water,sea level.
Normal temp is 87C. with anitfreeze the coolant boils at
132C. (under 12psi cap pressure)

over heating has many causes.
coolant not tool low? levels? inside RAD actual, dead cold.
got leaks?
try a new cap and new thermostat first , they are cheap.

I have a hino 1995 ff2h h07c-turbo experiencing overheating problem. When I'm driving suburban street below 65kms the engine temperature is moderate. However once I drive on motorway exceeding 70kms...


You say its overheating but not loosing coolant, is it truly overheating or is the gauge telling fibs. You seem to have done all the right things but if it retains its coolant I don't see a reason other than the gauge. When you next run it and it shows overheat on the gauge, get a rag and very gently crack the rad cap. If hot water comes out but no steam then it may not be too hot. If after a few minutes you are able to safely remove the cap see what the gauge says with the key on but not running. If the gauge says its still high then the gauge is faulty because its obviously not boiling the coolant.
Lastly, have the rad cap checked or replaced because the cap is crucial to the boiling point of the coolant. Make sure the cap pressure setting is right for your vehicle, too low and it will boil easier.

I'll try to be brief. 2 months ago heard boiling


That car is over heating! Things to check #1Fan does it run #2thermostat change it #3 water pump pull the top rad hose to see if the pump is pushing water #4 last but worst flush the rad check to see that ther is good flow through it may be nessasary to change it. I'm sure one of these will sove your problem.

Cooling system overheating


Hi! Theres a coolant reservoit that connects thru the radiator. The coolant level should not be full, it must be just on the HI / MAX indicator. You fill it too much it will spill and leave you with no coolant to circulate. That may be the cause of overheating. HOpe this helps and have a good one!

How do i add coolent to the Rad, when there is no rad cap.


if the rad has no cap then there should be an external expansion tank, with a small water pipe running to the rad, this circulates the water, make sure you dont get confused with the windsheild washer tank, may sound silly but has been done lots of time!

I have had car put under pressure to check for


You could just be burning it up. Do you have accesive white smoky exhaust?
Have you filled radiator completely. Fill completely once while vehicle is running, burp upper radiator hose while adding. Then wait 10 minutes and the coolant level should drop in radiator as it will flow into engine block. This is where you want to fill the system again, and put the cap on.

Boiling over


your radiator should've been changed it could be clogged and fluid can't get by. is the rad cap plastic? If so it might not be holding any pressure becuase it has over heated a couple at least and ruined the seal. hope i helped, have a nice day.

First check for the rad fan working. It could be the Fan relay, bad ground connection or coolant temp sensor (commands the fan relay). If not, check for little tiny bubbles in the coolant. Do this by running the vehicle with the rad cap off. Make sure there is no pressure in the cooling system first or you will get burned (squeeze rad hose, should be cool and easy to squeeze). Look into the top of the rad and watch for these tiny little bubbles. If they are present, you will need a head gasket.
