My car overheats even after you drive only 5 kilos. What could be the problem


two liquids regulate temperature i the car - oil and coolant. you need to check both, as you did not bother to think and provide us with manufacturer,model, fuel type and year, only general info can be provided.

oil - check level and change/top up as required, if change required - change oil filter as well while you are at it. change for type of oil required for your vehicle, oil and filters should be changed every 5000km (3500miles) to 10000km (7000miles), this depend on the condition, driving and age of the engine.

coolant - check level, top up f required.

if oil level is correct, and no loss in coolant either, you need to check coolant flow, start investigation if pump belt is not too lose and tension it if required, cannot do that if pump is driven directly from the shaft. check for thermostat problem and change if required, lastly - check radiator flow and reverse flush if required.

if you are flushing radiator - best is to flush block and heating system as well at same time, drain liquid and re-fill with new coolant.

hope this will help you at least a bit - do not forget to vote... :-)

Cooling system


Raise the car front end as high as possible with a floor jack, fill the coolant tank to the top, run the engine until it reaches just short of overheating, shut it down and run water over the radiator, this will burp the air out. Repeat as needed. Don't let the coolant recovery tank run dry during procedure.

Leaking water from front of oil pan


check the seal around your water pump and also the radiator hoses. more than likely you have a leaking water pump. look for signs of coolant on the serpentine belt and keep a close eye on your coolant level.

SMOKE UNDER HOOD COULD BE COOLANT LEAK FROM RADIATOR ITSELF OR CHECK FOR LEAKING TOP RADIATOR HOSE AND CHECK FOR LEAKING BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSE.LOOK UNDER THE HOOD IF COOLANT BOILING OUT COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG ENGINE OVERHEATING FROM BAD THERMOSTAT OR BAD WATER PUMP.CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAK AT WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE.IF SO WATER PUMP NEED REPLACING.ADD MORE COOLANT UNTIL LEVEL CORRECT.TRY LOCATE LEAK. IF CAR OVERHEATED AND BOILED IT OUT. SMOKE UNDER THE HOOD CAN ALSO BE CAUSED BY LEAKING VALVE COVERS WHICH CAN BE FIRE HAZARD IF OIL LEAKS ON HOT EXHAUST MANIFOLD.

My car keeps overheating what should i do to solve the problem


1 Check if the radiator fan is working properly. 2 Check the level of coolant in the radiator. If less top it up. 3 Check the oil level. May be the oil is less. If so top it up. 4 Check the water hoses are connected properly and there is no leakage at the connecting points. 5 Get the fins at the radiator cleaned up to allow free flow of air. 6 If all this OK and the car is still getting overheated then either the water circulation pump or the oil pump is not functioning.

I have Honda CIVIC,2005 And I like to know I keep the maintenance of this car


Honda is a reliable car but you still have to observe a few things to keep it running in top shape. Make sure that engine oil is replaced regularly. The interval in which oil is replaced is based on the type and oil manufacturer spec. Coolant should always be checked and fluid levels for motor oil, brakes, power steering, ATF for automatic and clutch for manual should never be allowed to get to a low level.

Check engine light keeps coming on, I stop the car shut it off and then drive away and at 3500 or 4000 ligh pops on


the check engine light is on most likely because you might have low fluid levels either oil , or coolant. if the levels are good there is an active code in the ecm. if your vehicle has been running rough it is most likely due to a bad O2 sensor. please rate this solution.
