Make sure the fan is operating properly.
Check the water pump for adequate output.
I think you have to "burp" the cooling system.
Check the manual.

If you are loosing coolant and cant find any leaks check your oil level. If oil level is rising.you have blown a head gasket or cracked a head. Common when an engine over heats badly.

Hi, Chris_goslin and the usual suspects are:
1. Engine oil level and SAE weight are too low or not circulating.
2. Insufficient or blocked air flow over the engine.
3. Heavy combustion chamber carbon deposits.
4. Ignition timing retarded due to faulty MAP, CKP, or CMP sensor.
5. Carburetor jetted too lean.
6. Leaking intake or exhaust valve.
7. Water coolant old or low change every two years.
8. Water pump failure.
9. Radiator clogged, cap loose or malfunctioning.
10. Radiator fans not coming on.
11. Clutch slipping, brakes dragging, heavy load, towing a trailer etc.
12. Idling too long without moving.
13. For constant hot weather temperatures, mountain, or desert riding conditions consider adding an oil cooler and or cylinder head cooler.

Why my oldsmobile alero 1999 wont keep water in


CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAKS AROUND THE RADIATOR LOOK DOWN BETWEEN COOLING FANS AND RADIATOR SIDES FOR SIGNS OF ANTIFREEZE.CHECK ALL RADIATORS HOSES AND HEATER HOSES.IF ALL LOOK GOOD CHECK ENGINE OIL FOR COOLANT LEAKS.IF OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE COOLANT LEAKING IN CRANK CASE.YOU HAVE A HEAD GASKET LEAK.YOU NEED TO CHANGE OIL + FILTER. GET THE HEAD GASKET FIX.BECAUSE LEAK IN THE CRANK CASE WILL LOCK UP THE ENGINE.IF CRANK CASE OIL LOOKS OKAY.YOU DONT HAVE THE COOLANT CORRECT MIXTURE.YOU SHOULD HAVE 50/50 ANTIFREEZE AND WATER.

I started the blazer and it is idleing really rough. then I get a mile down the road and it dies on me. I just replaced the thermostat and fuel filter bc it wont hold antifreeze and keeps overheating. What...


The loss of coolant, overheating and running bad could add up to coolant leaking into the engine. The Dexcool antifreeze used in the GM vehicles has caused gasket failures in the upper air plenum and the lower intake manifold. This could allow the antifreeze to be pulled into the combustion chamber and the oil. If there is no visible external leak, then this is probably what's happening. Sometimes the gasket leak will show up as a very small and difficult to detect puddle somewhere around the gasket/engine mating surfaces. Also look for signs of coolant in the oil. If it has gotten into the combustion chamber, then it has probably ruined the O2 sensors and catalytic converter. The only solution is to pull the upper and lower intakes and replace the gaskets. Change the oil and filter. DO NOT put Dexcool back in the radiator. Use a green antifreeze that is labeled compatible with aluminum engine parts and radiators. Replace the O2 sensor. The catalytic converter might have survived. Get it running first, then worry about the converter. Good luck to you, and try to have a Merry Christmas.

Take it back to them. Most likely they spilled washer fluid or oil on a part that gets hot. Then when you drove the spill evaporated. They may have checked your antifreeze and improperly tightened the Radiator cap causing a leak.

Observe the temperature gauge for overheating. Some Lube places do more service than oil changes. You need to pressure test the Radiator for leaks. They could have simply overfilled the fluid.

I have oil in the coolant lines


Change and refill oil and change oil filter, refill coolant to it's level with proper mixture. Run bike on idle for 10-15 minutes, do a burst of revs and run constant rev at 5000 rpm for 20-30 secs, watch exhaust pipe smoke condition and if temperature gauge indicates overheating. Let bike cool off and check oil and coolant state. If you see milky oil, oily coolant and reservoir going empty, you may have a cracked cyl head walls. Happy hunting.

Oil in radiator, now what? Bought bike and transported in 30 below weather, had some antifreeze in pickup bed. Just got bike out and went to top of radiator, have heavy oil in radiator!!


When you have oil in a radiator (any 4 stroke including cars) or water/antifreeze in the oil (e.g., on dipstick) then you need to check for either a blown head gasket or, worse, a cracked cylinder/block. Sorry...

HAve a 1996 Ford explorer v-8 that is overheating,


With cool engine... open radiator cap and look inside radiator. Do you see lots of sediment and calcium growth on radiater tubes? If yes, a coring may be needed. If only slightly bad, a radiator flush may be needed... then refill with 50 percent antifreeze.

Good thermostat, cleaned cooling system, non-leaking water pump, good water flow via water pump... nothing else left (unless you put the thermostate in backwards)..

Let us know

Zx12r overheating


Four choices in order of probability >
  1. The thermostat could be bad
  2. A cooling fan not kicking in
  3. A bad water pump
  4. A restriction in a coolant line or radiator
