Overheating is never a good thing the piston probably melted and you may have seized the bearings on the crank and ruined the seals aswell causing any compression to blow thru the case and blowing the tranny fluid out of the tube.. best thing is to take the whole things apart and carefully inspect every part and replace anything worn or questionable. better safe then sorry...,,

Why is my quad bike over heating?

Too much compression will cause overheating, detonation and possible piston failure. Luke's Racing Engines suggests that you C.C. the head which means the process of finding the cubic centimeters of the area above the mating surface head-block. Its accomplished by having a burrett, filling it to a specific amount then getting a flat plate with a small hole in it and sealing it to the head then pouring the fluid in the burrett into the the following: ""C.C. ing the head" is done by placing a piece of Plexiglas over the head (Drill a small hole in the Plexiglas). Put grease or vaseline on the head gasket surface to prevent leaks. Use a syringe (or any measuring device marked in c.c.'s) and fill the head chamber with water. (don't forget to put a spark plug in the head)! This will give you the stock volume of the head. Mill the head to the desired squish band thickness then open up the combustion chamber to bring the compression back down to the stock or preferred c.c.'s.

My aunt overheated her 97 geo prizm.Now it will turn over but it won't start. It sounds like it has low cylinder compression, what should it be? What else could it be?

Very likely she has blown out the head gasket. If the motor lost a lot of cooling fluid, that is the most logical cause.
A leaking head asked will press out all cooling fluid.
Not the overheating caused damage to the head gasket, but the other way around. The leaking gasket, caused the overheating.

Make sure the fluid level is correct on the dipstick as the clutch packs will often take a while to fill with fluid and you may need to add more fluid

2010 YZ250 2 stroke Overheating - the bike is used for extreme enduro riding. I have recently found that it is overheating very easily. Any idea what can be causing this?

Sounds like an overly lean condition accompanied by a high compression situation. Perhaps the bloke that owned the bike before you had the head cut to increase compression. In this case, you could either replace the head or run high octane fuel.

Also - look at the water pump condition - seals and the drive gear. The seals might be leaking if your oil is discolored and the gear that drives the impeller has been known to shed teeth over long periods of time. It is also quite possible that the bearing is shot.

Also check to make sure the head pipe does not have any leaks near the cylinder.

Car overheating & transmission is slipping

Sounds like a bad radiator. The radiator doesn't just cool the coolant. It also cools the tranny fluid. So if it just started overheating and slipping at the same time then the radiator has probably leaked out enough coolant to make it overheat and enough tranny fluid to make it slip. Check for leaks or wet spots where you park. And obviously check both fluid levels.

Hello. Sorry to hear you are having this trouble. From what I hear it sounds like your automatic transaxle may be low on fluid, or the fluid has been getting too old and overheated (as any will over time). Please look for signs of any tranny fluid leaks on the ground and under the van. If it does you will need to fix the leak, and/or keep up with fluid loss all the time until you do.

Please check your automatic transaxle (tranny) fluid level with the dipstick under the hood. See if the fluid looks pink and clean. If the fluid or dipstick is dark or brown looking at all, it needs replaced. Get the fluid professionally flushed and changed. This step alone may fix your van as long as the fluid is not leaking, and too much old fluid use (hopefully) has not already damaged the tranny.

My 1997 ford explorer overheated and the transmission slipped

Tranny fluid may have been contaminated with coolant since tranny cooler lines go to radiator or condensor.
I would fix your leak on radiator, then completely drain tranny fluid and filter and replace.

Radiator vs. transmission

same issue. tranny fluid is cooled via intercooler that runs along bottom of radiator. this developed a crack and because tranny fluid is under more pressure, started dumping tranny fluid into radiator. A couple guys recommended replacing rad, then servicing tranny just in case any coolant leaked backwards.
