I hope you have managed to solve the radiator problem by now. Seicento seem to suffer from water flow blockage in the heater blower area. I recommend you check the piper behind the carburator and make sure water is flowing. Normally when these pipes are blocked, water will flow back to the expansion tank and start leaking through its cap. You can also open the small screw on the small pipe coming out from the back panel behind the carburator and see whetehr water flows. Also, if the water is heard grumbling when engine is switched off, it is highly likely that the water is not flowing through the heater unit. Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Andrew

The fan might not be working or try check if fan blocked or radiator blockage...open the bonnet and open the cap see if water flows by looking at the bubbles while the engine is on.

Radiator overheating


If the overheating is only occasional, it sounds like the radiator still has some blockage that moves around and plugs up again. Try flushing it backwards again. If it continues, consider a new radiator. A radiator is cheaper than head gasket work, which may happen if it keeps overheating.

My 1996 toyota avalon is overheating. There are no leaks, thermostat is new, radiator is new and has been flushed, changed the fan relay. Don't know why its overheating.


Is the fan coming on? If not, possible lower radiator fan switch/sensor? No leaks... So overflow tanks level stays stable? How do you know it is overheating? Elevated temp guage? Engine smells overheated? Both? We need more info.

Fiat seicento 2000 reg keeps overheating after going 5 or so miles, light comes on then grumbling and water from expansion tank. had new radiator switch put on, took fan off and tested-works ok- but not...


This may be a puzzle...
The seicento (I drive the same car) likes to create problems in the heater section of the cooling system. The small pipes to it (behind the carburator) may be blocked or the entire heater may simply be dirty. Flushing the system with a water hose may help. Usually this problem starts slowly and goes away if you re-start the engine and then excellerate a few times. Check if your heater blows hot air - if yes, and if he keeps blowing hot air (does not cool down and get cold) ther is no blockage. If you have a blockage, your heater will only blow hot for a little while and then comes normal cool air - if this is the case, you have a blockage right in your heating system which runs your cooling system hot and the cap of your cooling tank will start leaking. This is a comon problem on older Seicentos....
Other general problems can also be the case, like defective thermostat, fan motor does not come on (check fuse and relais first).
In some cases, ther might be some air trapped in the cooling system and doing the above will also cure it. At last, check if your water pump is working.

Overheating bubbleling in resevoir


bubbling into the overflow may mean a head gasket is gone, it may also mean the radiator or thermostat is blocked. or there is a leak
Clean and flush radiator, check the radiator fins for corrosion
pressure test coolant system
(if this is ok then)
new thermostat
new coolant

Overheating


If you haven't flushed your radiator, i would recommend this asap. i would also inspect the water pump and thermostat as well. replace both components if found to be faulty.

Make sure the cooling fan is operational. it should cycle on and off if the air condition is activate.
