Question about 2006 Suzuki Forenza

1 Answer

2006 Forenza. Over heating problem. Coolant in resivoir goes down. It does maintain pressure. No leaks. Both fans functional at operating temp. Fuses appear to be OK. At operating temp, lower hose is cool. Upper hose has a little heat. The heater works. Is there a specific style of coolant for this application? Thank you for your time and consideration.

Take the overflow hose loose from the resovoir and stick it down in pop bottle with water about half full
and run vehicle if you see bubbles in it you have a bad head gasket.

My car heats up in stop n go traffic. The temperature gauge can go as high as to the 'RED'. I adding water and coolant everyday. Are the fans supposed to come on as I am driving and the car heats up?


if you are adding coolant every day then you are experiencing coolant loss
could be from a leaking pump gasket , head gasket or other leaking item
have a compression test done to check for head gasket , cracked head
next have the cooling system pressure tested to find the cooling leak
lastly check the fan, fan relay , fuses and coolant temp sensor unit for correct operation

make sure both cooling fans are running while the a/c is on. You may also have an air pocket in the system.

2008 ford expedition air conditioning problems


the ac pressure depends on the gas in use
r314 runs at high pressures
overheating at slow speeds indicate an inefficient coolant fan and the high ac pressures indicate that the condenser fan also is not operational
if it has a viscous fan hub , replace the fan hub
if it has electric fans check / the fans, fan relay , fuses , coolant temp sensor

Radiator resivoir is cracked and fans not running and i need to replace the radiator and or run a toggle switch for the fan relay switch if the wiring is bad


It may already have a blown head gasket. The max pressure on the cooling system in normal conditions is 18psi.
How do you know the fan or fans are ok ? The computer signals the relay to turn the fans on if the engine temp reaches 220 degrees or you turn on the a/c. If the temp sensor does not have coolant to tell it the engine temp, the fans won't come on.
As for a toggle switch, you would need a relay mounted close to the fans because they will pull too much current thru only a switch.

You may be able to braze (2) 1/2 in. copper 90 degree water fittings back to back to install as a jumper. Install jumper well ahead of bad hoses. I have never seen a stopped up heater core. Replace any suspect hoses and temp control valves.

Well its like i have an oil leak when im running on the freeway my oil pressure goes up and temp goes down but when i stop my oil pressure goes down and my temp goes up???...what could this be a valve...


Valve cover leak (oil) will not cause this problem, what needs to be checked is your radiator cooling fan, more then likely not working, that's why when your going down the freeway it don't over heat, you have air going through radiator, but when at stop, no air going through radiator to cool coolant before it goes back through engine, starts to get hot, and oil will also thin out, and have low oil pressure, check cooling fan's or fan, for voltage, should have voltage at normal oper. temp. about 210 - 220 deg., if you do have voltage and fan are not on, replace fan motor.

Sounds like you have coolant leak if you are loosing coolant or a bad thermostat. I would replace the thermostat, they run about $10. The other fan is an aux fan and will only run when the a/c unit is on.

2006 Frontier has only intermintent heat. Anti freeze levels good, no antifreeze leaking or in the crankcase. Normal temps on the gauge.The heat just comes and goes


Be verry careful with this kind of problem. Make sure you are not losing coolant somewere like through the exhaust through the head gasket. Before hot but close to opperating temp check for air bubles while radiator cap off. IF there are bubbles then the head gasket is leaking or blown. Sometimes a bottle of head gasket sealer will do the trick. (Remember if there is no fluid the electric thermometer for the engine to read it will not say it is hot). If the temp rises at a stop and then decreases this may be the problem. Check the fan clutch, if it feels realy easy to turn by hand then it may need to be replaced. Coolant systems (not open systems like BMW) must maintain constant pressure, so if the seal on the radiator is bad and air can escape then it needs to be replaced.
