The evidence presented indicates that the head gasket probably was blown or head/cylinder interface was not flat enough to hold compression and a gasket failure caused the cooling system to drain down into the crankcase.

2002 Diamante Heater not working


Sure!
Did you fill the radiator with water or coolant?
The radiator requires 50% water and 50% antifreeze, specifically ethylene glycol or the modern equivalent.
Water alone is very bad for your system, it will cause damage later on.
Now, let's fix the heating problem.
Your radiator is actually higher than the water pump of the car. Being higher, it will hold air if the cooling system is empty.
If you added water yesterday, you will need to add straight antifreeze today, not a 50/50 blend that you can buy in the store. Stores sell both 50/50 and straight. Read label.
When the engine is cold, take off your radiator cap and"burp" the system.
Here's how.
Get a container, at least a gallon of it, according to the instructions above.
Having that fluid right handy, start the motor of the car, and turn on the heater full blast.
Run the engine at a medium speed, you might need someone holding the gas pedal whilst you watch the coolant level.
Run the motor this way for at least 5 minutes, or even 10.
Keep the radiator full of coolant, even as you need to add some as the air comes out.
Don't put your face or body over the radiator, as it might blow out when the air comes out.
You should be getting heat in about 5 minutes or less.
Be blessed.

I have a 2006 chevy aveo and it runs hot when I run the air conditioner and the radiator tank is empty, when I put water in it, it makes a crackling noise and then when I try to give it gas to make it go...


Does the empty radiator have anything to do with the AC? OR is it always empty? You should fill the radiator and the tank when the engine is cool. Never take the radiator cap off a HOT engine. It can shoot hot steam and water all over you and cause serious burns. With the engine cool, take the radiator cap off and fill it with the proper coolant, not just water. The coolant instruction label should be on or near the radiator. Fill the radiator completely, You may have to finish it slowly because of air trapped in the system. You can run the engine a short time to assist in filling the radiator. When the engine is running, if a lot of air bubbles out it could have a blown head gasket. DO NOT ALLOW THE ENGINE RUN UNTIL IT GETS HOT. If there is air in the system the coolant will go down and you can continue to fill it. When it is completely full, shut off the engine, top off the radiator if necessary and put the cap on completely and tightly. Fill the coolant tank to the full mark with the same coolant as the radiator. Drive the car and see if it overheats. If it smokes and has water coming out the exhaust, it probably has a blown head gasket. After it cools, check the radiator again. If it is low or out of coolant, again - blown head gasket. A blown gasket can **** coolant into the combustion cylinder OR can blow exhaust back into the cooling system. It can also allow motor oil into the radiator. Look for oil when you are filling the radiator. Also check the engine oil, if it has coolant in it, it will be a thick gooey mixture. In either case you should have the car towed to a qualified mechanic for testing and repair. If none of these things are occurring, look for a leak in the coolant system. A bad hose, or a leaking water pump. A defective radiator cap or the cap is not on tight. Look for the easy things first. Good luck.

Yes it is normal just no hot air


1. When setting the temperature to MAX, blower level to FULL and outside air Vent CLOSED, no hot air comes out after 2-5 minutes?
If YES, when did you last flushed your radiator and is it full?
2. if more than 5 years ago, flush radiator system, instructions are usually in Owners manual. Use a bottle of Radiator cleaner, run egine hot for about 10-15 minutes, carefully open petcock in bottom of radiator to flush out radiator, WARNING, careful as flushed coolant would be boiling hot. As sson petcock is open and water start to flow out, carefully open radiator cap to enhance flushing flow. Use garden hose to fill radiator while flushing until water coming out from petcock is cold and clear.
Once clear, start engine, turn heter full and blower full blast and keep hose in radiator flowing full, leave petcock open until clear water flows out again. Once clear waters comes out, turn off engine,turn off garden hose and let water drain empty radiator. Once it stops flowing out, close petcock snug and put radiator cap on, pull off radiator coolant catch bottle, clean bottle for any debris and dirt. Drain any water, leave bottle empty and put it back onto its place.
3. Fill radiator with 1 gallon (4L) of concentrated coolant, top up radiator until full, fill catch bottle with concentrated coolant, start engine and keep it overflowing until no bubbles comes out and the radiator is fully hot. Once it is flowing good, close and connect everything. Drive with it and keep catch bottle filled as necessarry.
Good luck. Give as vote and good comment if this advise solve youor problem. Thank you.
