Water is not getting into the head


Instructions
    • 1 Park your RSV 1000R on a well-ventilated, level area, using its kickstand.
    • 2 Start the engine and let it idle in place until the temperature gauge built into the instrument cluster indicates a minimum internal temperature of 180 degrees Fahrenheit. This is the motorcycle's ideal operating temperature.
    • 3 Take note of the engine idle speed, using the tachometer needle, while the engine is running. Ideally, the engine should idle steadily at 1,250 rpm.
    • 4 Adjust the engine idle speed to 1,250 rpm, using the idle adjuster screw hidden between the lower right edge of the fuel tank and the upper edge of the right middle fairing panel. Turn the idle adjuster screw clockwise to increase the engine idle speed, or counterclockwise to decrease the engine idle speed, using a small flat screwdriver if your RSV 1000R's frame (VIN number) precedes ZD4MEE009YS000292. A plastic knob allows the engine idle speed to adjusted by hand on RSV 1000R models with a frame (VIN) numbers starting from ZD4MEE009YS000293.
    • 5 Rev the engine two to three times and observe the tachometer. The engine should return to a 1,250 rpm idle. Adjust the engine idle speed as needed, using the method described, then rev the engine again. Problems may exist within the throttle control, fuel-injection system or engine, if the engine idle speed will not hold steady at 1,250 rpm. Contact your local Aprilia service facility for assistance.
    • 6 Stop the engine, once you have obtained a steady 1,250 rpm idle speed.

2001 ford taurus that wont start. I am getting fuel pressure. I installed new plugs, wires, and coil pack. There is pressure in the radiator fill tank just from trying to start the car. Is that norma


Take off the radiator fill cap.
Top off the radiator.
Crank the engine.

Are there bubbles or is there water spouting out of the radiator fill hole?

Yes: likely cylinder head gasket failure or cracked header.

No: Pressure test cooling system after topping off with a pressure tester. Locate source of leak.

Assuming the water leak isn't anything to do with the non-starting situation, which it probably is though form the sound of it, also check the following:

1) Air filter
2) Fuel filter
3) Manifold Air Pressure sensor.
4) Mass Air Flow sensor.

My coolant expansion tank overflows after 20 minutes of running the engine


you either have a blown head gasket or cracked head both reasons will put compression gas into coolant system since air gets hotter faster than coolant any air in system will cause very fast over heating and push coolant out. the ford 3.0 is has a record of this problem the fix is not cheap and if you do it your self or have a shop do it both heads should be done and the t stat also replacing water pump would be wise

Engine coolant low light on, radiator constantly needs water dont know where its going


re fill your cars radiator/coolant bottle then rev the engine high. you may need somones help itll make it easier . if there is a lot of steam coming out of the tail pipe and or the exhaust smells sweet like coolant then its a head gasket problem. if that doesnt find the problem park you car on a large piece of cardboard or somthing light in color. it easier to put you car on ramps or jack stands, let it idle for a long time and then look for drips and spots. if there are none then try reving you engine and recheck, from there you can locate directly above hwere its is dripping from the engine / chassis then you can trace the wet surfaces up from there check you oil as well if its to high or smells like coolant its a head gasket

Land Rover 3.9 V8i Cooling Problem


Pressure test the system, it sounds like head gaskets that is backing into the water jackets and not the oil ports, which is the best of the two. Have heads checked for cracks of warping.

Putting water in a mini


From the top of the radiator (which is on the right hand side of the engine) beside the pressure cap there is a small hose pipe which leads to a plastic tank on the bulkhead.

This is called the expansion tank

On the side of the expansion tank is a level mark which shows how much water goes in there

If that is totally empty go back to the pressure cap on the radiator and unscrew it anti -clockwise (Only when the engine is cold and is not running).

Fill that up with cold water (Do you need anti-freeze in the water in your part of the world?)

Once that has been topped up replace the pressure cap making sure it is turned until it locks firmly then go back and fill up the expansion tank

Turn the engine on and let it run a while, water may escape from the expansion tank if you have over filled it.

If there are lots of bubbles and noises from the cooling system have it checked in case you have a leaky head gasket

Mazda bongo 2.5 turbo diesel 1996. over heating


no im a mechanic it sounds like that you have an air lock in the cooling system .i am familiar with ford freda and bongo and the design where the engine is is a bit far from the radiator ,so the problem with air locks magnifies.really the solution is just drain the water and refill it slowly while you are pressing and releasing,just repeat the action on the top radiator hose to get rid of any air trapping within the system,it's as simple as that really.you want it to have just water and no air as this will cause a blockage.
