1994 Toyota Corolla... Overheating! HELP! Replaced: radiator, water pump, relay, temperature sensor & thermostat! Fans are working! Even ran it w/out thermostat in, NP. What am I missing?


You have not mentioned 2 important things. 1, have you checked for leaking head gasket'? It can blow in any of 3 ways. a) between cylinders, which will result in a misfire, sometimes slight. b) between compression chamber and water jacket, which will cause a gassy smell in the cooling system. Open the radiator cap and start the engine, check for water bubbles when the engine reaches operating temp, and smell the water. 3) between water jacket and oil channels - there will be water in the oil. Check the dipstick for emulsified oil in the sump (a greyish colour).
And then 2 - engine timing. If the timing is fast, the engine will tend to run hot, especially when under load as in uphills etc.You will also hear pinging (spontaneous combustion). If the timing is slow, it will also tend to run hot when under load under certain circumstances.
Let us know more.

My 1991 ranger 4.0 loses about 1/4 gal of water each week but no visable leaks


The head gasket or small crack is leaking the water into the combustion chamber and the steam is going out the tail pipe.

With the engine warmed up, you'll be able to smell burnt antifreeze.

2000 ford explorer loosing coolant


Unfortunately this will be kind of hard but, it sounds like you may have a blown head gasket depending on where on the passenger car it's leaking? Drive the car get it hot. Leave it running get out and pop the hood. Start looking for leaks. Use a powerful flashlight to help look. If it doesn't leak while you're driving and only after the car is shut off then I'd say you're creating a vacuum in the coolant system, change your coolant cap at that point.

How many fans do you have under your hood in front the of the engine between the engine and the front grill ? Sound like you may have two problems an oil leak and a over heating problem. first check the cooling fan or fans and make sure they are working. Second check the valve covers to see if they are leaking oil onto the engine or exhaust.

My 2000 Z3 BMW smells like it is running hot. The dash gage shows normal (right in the middle) We have not found any leaks anywhere indicating that the water resivor overflows. Any suggestions?


Check the exhaust side of your valve cover gasket for evidence of an oil leak. Burning synthetic oil tends to smell like hot plastic.

Car runs great with 90000, when it idles theres a slight burning smell and then it disappears as you drive, comes back when idling, any thoughts?


You likely have an oil leak that is running onto something hot. When the car is stopped, the smoke and smell comes out from under the hood and gets drawn inside the car through the air intake just in front of the windshield.

My honda accord wagon smells hot i stop running car, ther,s no leaks do i need a termostat?


You may have a bad thermostat or a weak water pump or a clogged radiator. Smell does not indicate if its hot. The gauge or coolant light might suggest its getting hot. You may have a fuel control issue that is overheating the catalytic converter which would smell or an oil leak that is dripping onto a hot surface causing a smell. You may have a real small coolant leak that you cant see that could cause this also.

Engine oil mixed in coolant


this would more than likely be cause by a bad cylinder head gasket. I would bet 89% this is your problem.

No visable leaking, always smell coolant when motor is hot, outside of the 2003, 3.3liter grand caravan. Gauge will read half way after 3mins on a cold start, takes about 8mins for any heat to come from...


If you smell coolant then there is a small leak, it is most likely the water pump shaft seal, look for stains, coolant leaves a white powder when it dries, look on the underside of the hood for any coolant stains from it been flung there by the spinning water pump. Also have a radiator pressure test run, good insurance aginst an engine overheat if leak worsens, engines are very expensive to repair if overheated badly.
