If you cannot see obvious coolant leaking while the engine is running,stop the engine and when the engine is cool,use a pressue tester and you will find out the leaking place.

I don't want to sound hard but radiator what shouldn't or I should say can't "evaporate" The cooling system should be air tight. If you are loosing or somehow coolant is disapearing you nead to have a pressure test done as to see where the coolant is going. You may have a leak that you don't see because it is near the engine or exaust and when it drips it hits the hot engine or exaust pipes and then it will evaporate. In that case however you do have a leak Worst case is you could have a bad head gasket and it is going right out your exaust. Find out where the leak is and take it from there. I hope this helps a little anyway and good luck.

Can u run detroit ddec3 engine without thermostats

radiators are designed to past a flow of water at a set rate to allow the heat transfer from the water to the air at the maximum rate possible. Thermostats are in place to facilitate this flow rate to maintain the correct engine temperature. I know of one engine (Ford 6 cyl) that if you remove the thermotat it will boil inside 5 minutes because the water flows to fast to allow heat transfer. So while you prpbably could do what you ask ,in the long run it would be detremential to the engine. Best check with detroit.

How can i check if my radiator is clogged

Use a pressure testing kit that is used to flush the radiator. It will hook up to the garden hose and force water through the radiator. If water comes out from the bottom tube of the radiator as fast as it goes in (well, almost as fast) there is NO clog. If it comes out slowly, get some radiator flushing material and flush the whole system including the heater core!

My mazda b2200 truck loses water from the radiator at a very fast rate. It happens after travelling 5 km.Ihave changed the head gasket nothing has improved

You may have a cracked cylinder head. If water is not getting in the engine oil, run a cylinder leak down test and test for hydrocarbons in the cooling system.

My 1990 toyota corolla is getting hot really fast - i fill radiator up and after 5-10 min the water has evaporated - it appears to be leaking somewhere around the right side of engine (facing front of car)...

Well there are only 3 things that could have gone wrong.

1. Radiator Leak - this means the radiator has developed a hole with via corrosion of the metal parts of simply integrity failure of the plastic parts of the radiator.
2. Hose leak - this could be a hole in 1 of 2 hoses that connects the engine to the radiator. Or it can also be a leak where the hose connects to the radiator (clamp Failure).
3. Water Pump breakdown - this is where the gasket in the water pump has failed and is leaking out the water rather than pumping it.

All the problems above has different ways of diagnosing. but we can probably narrow it down.

1. if the leak is near the radiator then it could be a hose connection, hose breakage or Radiator hole.

2. if the leak is nearer the engine then check the other end of the hose and if its not there then it could only be the water pump is leaking. You can check this if there are water stains on the water pump. The water pump on a 1990 corolla is mechanical turned also by a fan belt. Look for a pulley that has a hose connected to the radiator and that would be the water pump.

My car is leaking coolant at a fast rate. I just replaced the top radiator hose yesterday which split open. I can't tell if its leaking from another hose either...

take it to a mechanic. It's either the radiator itself which is coroded, or it's another hose. It could also be the water pump. If it's any of these, you would be better off having it diagnosed, and then ordering the parts online yourself. YOu can cut the cost in half!

Hi any one there


The cooling fan kiks in when the needle almost hit half, if A/C is on, both cooling fans are on and temp. gauge should be about 1/3. If it goes over, replace thermostat. if still overheats, replace water pump and flush entire cooling system. Another important thing to check is the A/C evaporator in front of radiator, if it gets plugged or dirty, the radiator will no work properly.

Radiator water loss

heat temperature evaporates water, therefore the water level will decrease on a more than daily basis as the vehicle is used. This is just one of the reasons for water loss (or usage). The radiotor drain plug migh be loose or worn. the plug is a white plastic like bolt on the base side of the radiator. Some hoses may be loose, worn or broken. the radiator itself may have a leak somewhere within the accordions. pour in some radiator stop leak.
also try coolant instead of water; coolant has a less evaporative density than water.
