Question about Hyundai Elantra

Open Question

1998 Lantra Sportswagon - Australian. After an overheat (blown rad top hose), subsequent no start. I need to remove the head to check for warping/cracking. Have removed all ancillary wiring ,exh. etc, timing belt off cam pulley, are there any hidden brackets/bolts? Can you provide torque settings for head bolts, timing belt tensioner etc., for reassembly? Do you know where I might find a pdf manual for this engine? Thanks

Ebay is your best bet, might also try craigslist, etc.  I know for most cars you can also get a shop manual on Ebay that will include details on maintenance for most if not all of the car.

On my Suzuki gran vitara 2002 I am losing engine coolant from overflow pipe,,overheats after 20 mins of driving(once coolant tank empty),,recently had a new thermostat fitted...please help,,thankyou

you might have a blown head gasket, when the engine is cold remove the rad cap start the engine and look for air bubbling into the rad , if you see said bubbles then you need to have the head gasket replaced. PS Do not remove the rad cap when the engine is hot as you could be seriously injured/burnt

I have a 2005 Suzuki Aerio that keeps on overheating change the thermostat change the radiator but a hose is building pressure causing it to burst

bad hoses.!! heck they are 10 years old, none last for ever.
a hose that fails is a bad hose. but some old hoses can be
pushed of the edge, sure, but hose is bad never the less.
is the rad cap new,? (do that first) use correct cap, pressure rating
never over 14psi.
my guess is you have venting? (name all overheating facts, SIGNS)
arethere signs oif steam and oil and carbon in the rad side tank or at filler hole (cold checked only)
if yes, that can be bad head gasket or far worse.
get the rad pressure checked (hand pump) leak down test.
then check the rad for exhaust gasses. blue/green tester.

does it only overheat parked.? when?
if it stays cool moving that means the fan is dead, parked.
the natural pressure is 12-14psi regulated by the cap.

you need to do tests first. not change parts.
are you going to replace all parts only to find a warped head.?
i cant hear engine run, nor do rational analysis.
nor see it mess up, or when and how bad. not me. im blind.
asking net bunny's (blind) how to fix this is over the top.
why not get the car serviced by a pro that has all those tools.
(at least 3 tools)
compression tester.
rad leak down finds leaks and if block head cracked or head gasket blown.
green/blue rad cap tester. (exhaust leaks)
a pryo IR heat gun to measure for hot points. (checks cores easy)

I have a 1998 eagle talon and it keeps blowing the rad at the top hose clamp. Has anyone ever come across this.

Obviously there is excessive pressure coming from somewhere.The two most likely places are a defective radiator cap(not allowing excessive pressure to escape to the resevoir),or a blown head gasket(allowing cylinder pressure into the cooling system).

Hi i own a 1998 dodge grand caravan and the problem i have is that i fill the rad up and all the water comes out of the over flow draining the rad. can you please help me? thanks wendy

not good wendy, most likely cause is a blown cylinder head gasket, but have someone check to make sure the thermostat is opening( if you let the engine idle for around 10min the top radiator hose will get hot when the thermostat opens if the engine overheats before the top hose gets hot then replace the thermostat) if the thermostat is poening then supect the head gasket.

My 1998 Honda Civic EX 2 Dr coupe constantly overheats. We have tried boring out the thermostat, and replaced the radiator cap which helped somewhat. It keeps blowing the lid off of the overflow resevoir...

Cracked Cylinder head or cylinder head gasket blown. Bet you filled it up with cold water when it was hot! Check your oil level, see if it is going up (water getting in) Remove the rad cap start your engine and if it blows the water out then i'm probably right.

My 1998 legacy is overheating, check engine light doesn't come on, could it be the thermostat?

Yes it could, but the cars have a bad reputation for eating head gaskets, so just to be safe, keep your eye on the temp gauge, don't let it over heat, carry water with you. and check for steam out the exhaust when driving, look for oil in the radiator, it will float to the top. A radiator shop can tell you real fast if you have a blown head gasket. We just did one here, found it easier to replace the motor than to do the heads. I have heads if you need them, J25. But on the bright side, could just be low on water. Your thermostat will usually make the engine run cold from being stuck wide open, If it gets stuck in the closed position, it will overheat, pop open the rad cap when warmed up, careful, look to see if the water is moving. If it is, the thermostat is open, will not overheat.

Replacing the radiator system for nissan altima 1998

Drain coolant from the cooling system. White plastic drain plug in bottom of radiator.

take off bottom rad. hose and top rad hose.

All wrenches and sockets are either 10 or 12 mm. Remove air shroud from around radiator and fan.
Sometimes its easier to remove fan too.

If its an automatic, remove 2 rubber hoses at bottom of rad.

remove 4 bolts top and bottom that hold rad. in place.

reverse order of parts. Fill with coolant and check for leaks.

That is the basics of it.
