Question about 1995 Triumph Trophy 900

1 Answer

Coolant Resovoir is boiling over.

If I run my Triumph for a while coolant begins to boil over and white smoke comes out of the run off hose. If anyone can help let me know, thanks!

    Do you know if there is a thermostat installed, sometimes on cars, if they stop opening you get back pressure problems? I test car ones by hanging it in water and bring slowly to boil at about 90+ degrees you should see the valve open. P.S. water boils at 100 degrees Celsius.

Sounds like you have got a stuck thermostate. it will have to be replaced ,do not operate untill problem is repaired or you will cook your engine.

White smoke coming out the tailpipe. what could it be


It could be coolant boiling off. This can be indicative of a cracked block ($$$$) or failed gasket ($$).

Check the coolant level of the car - if low - it is most likely the problem.

My 2003 coolant is gone after i field it ad it also boiled up and running hot and cut off and have some brown stuff in my resavior but no white smoke no misfiring and no muddy oil can some one help


you may have a bad head gasket causing this to happen. don`t know where you live but if it`s in a cold area you may not notice if its has white smoke(as burning coolant in cold weather may look normal)this can cause the problems you listed.it may not burn enough to show on plugs but over time you will loose coolant.it could also be a bad thermostat that has stuck closed causing overheating and boiling out. the thermostat is the cheapest thing to try then if it doesn`t fix it then have the head gasket checked out or do both at the same time

Overheating coolant boiling out into reserve tank


you have a blown head gasket.. doesn't have to have coolant in the oil for a blown head gasket... if hoses are rock hard when running then you have exhaust leaking into the coolant via a blown head gasket...

My s 430 has smoke coming from under hood after driving but not all the time temp gauage reads normal. I had oil and trans leaks sealed but it is still happening, what else could it be? Thanks


SMOKE UNDER HOOD COULD BE COOLANT LEAK FROM RADIATOR ITSELF OR CHECK FOR LEAKING TOP RADIATOR HOSE AND CHECK FOR LEAKING BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSE.LOOK UNDER THE HOOD IF COOLANT BOILING OUT COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG ENGINE OVERHEATING FROM BAD THERMOSTAT OR BAD WATER PUMP.CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAK AT WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE.IF SO WATER PUMP NEED REPLACING.ADD MORE COOLANT UNTIL LEVEL CORRECT.TRY LOCATE LEAK. IF CAR OVERHEATED AND BOILED IT OUT. SMOKE UNDER THE HOOD CAN ALSO BE CAUSED BY LEAKING VALVE COVERS WHICH CAN BE FIRE HAZARD IF OIL LEAKS ON HOT EXHAUST MANIFOLD.

Coolant boiling out of reservoir, overheating.


Hi,
You have insufficient coolant inside radiator that it boiled during running. Just top your coolant to normal level and re try your car. If still boiled you may have : - clog up radiator or - defective thermostat
Check also the radiator and hoses for leaks.

Bmw m44 engines heavy water loss


If your car is loosing coolant, there might be an exterior leak, or an interior leak. First check and make sure that radiator cap is tight and the rubber sealer is intact, there can be many other reasons ...hole in the coolant hose, leaking radiator, heater core, water pump, intake manifold and more... Check and see if there is any puddle of coolant on the ground, if so you can find where the coolant is coming from.
There must be an internal leak, a blown cylinder head gasket. See if the bottom of the oil cap looks like somebody spit on it, if so then coolant mixing with the oil, when the engine is running see if there is any white smoke at tail pipe. If engine overheats, and there are air bubbles in the coolant bottle "boiling", this could indicate a bad cylinder head gasket too.

I change the water pump, thermostat, and radiator but its still over heating


I assume that there are no leaks anywhere and the radiator cap is in good condition. A bad radiator cap wil be indicated by the coolant being heard to boil just after the engine is stopped because of the retained heat in the engine when there is no coolant circulation. Ensure all the hoses and clamps where they connect to the various pipes in the engine bay and fix/replace any that are suspect. The heater hoses and those pesky little bypass hoses in the cooling system tend to go hard and split if they are over 10 years old, allowing coolant loss. Those spring type hose clamps tend to be less effective in clamping as the hoses become hard. Worm drive ones are the best to use.

If there are no leaks and water pump and thermostat are working correctly, but undetected loss of coolant once the engine heats up, then it could indicate a problem with the head gasket (Usually caused by allowing engine to become excessively overheated when cooling system has run dry and warping the head) allowing very hot high pressure combustion gases into the engine water jacket, which super heats the coolant in the engine block, which then boils off, and is released via the cap. If the head gasket leak is bad enough it will allow coolant into the combustion chambers which will produce white steamy smoke in the exhaust and allow coolant to get into the sump while the engine is stopped. This is indicated by a white oil and water emulsion on the dipstick.

Car is over heating back boiling


My 1994 Acura Legend over heats. There isn't any coolant in the oil, nor white steam coming out of the tail pipe. All hoses are tight and no leaks are noted. The fans are working properly. However, there is back boiling in the radiator and loss of coolant...

What is causing this ?
