Question about 1989 Yamaha FZR 600

1 Answer

Constantly leaks coolant. I have to refill at least once a week.

Once i fill the coolant and ride, it stays right were it should for temp. But as soon as im done riding, the coolant leaks and almost completely drains. This is getting very frustrating since i really am not sure why it keeps leaking. Any advice is much appreciated.
Thanks

The last few times I filled the rinse dispenser and ran the dishwasher I notice the arrow showing the rinse aid is almost empty. Impossible. What is going on with this?


THE ANSWER IS YES. FROM YOUR DESCRIPTION IT SOUNDS LIKE THE DISPENSER PUMP OR RESERVOIR IS LEAKING. YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE WHOLE SOAP DISPENSER. ALTHOUGH DISH WASHERS NEED THE HELP OF RINSE AID IT IS ONLY DISPENSED A DROP OR TWO AT A TIME DURING THE FINAL RINSE CYCLE PART OF THE WASH. HOPE THIS HELPS AND THANK YOU FOR READING THIS.

Overflow tank not storing coolant.


Don't jump the gun and replace the head gaskets like the guy recommended...you need to have a technician look at it...can be a minor issue or something totally different. I had the problem with my stratus and paid tons of money to do the heads...never solved the issue and heads were done right. Its was blockage with in the coolant system and was discovered til my water pump went out.

Car never reaches operating temperature (cold weather) thus little to no heat inside


change the thermostat, sounds like it could stuck open and wont allow the engine reach operating temp, also test the constant control relay module located to the right of the battery as your facing the front of the car, also test coolant temp switch it might be defective and producing a high voltage that would cause the fans to constantly operate no matter the temp. Hope this helps

Temp keeps over heating even though it has coolant, but goes thru coolent like nothing have to fill it up once a week


If your are blowing white or gray smoke out the tailpipe you have a head gasket leak. Or you may just have an leak, you should see a puddle if going through it in a week

Was driving my 1999 chevy venture this morning after 12 miles had no heat & temp gauge pegged in the red. then went down & came right back up. Stopped & turned it off for 20 minutes or so. ...


You are describing a slow coolant leak and the resultant no heat and blockoverheating symptoms. The no heat is because there is insufficient coolant to cycle through the heater core, and the chuggin you describe is the engine indicating serious overheating.
With engine cold, you must add water--not anti-freeze--to the radiator itself, until it reaches the top of the radiator, then start the engine. If you do not have a radiator cap in addition to the overflow bottle (some vehicles don't), you must still add water to the radiator, even if you have to bypass the overflow bottle hose to do it. Add water until no more will go into the radiator. Start engine, let idle until operating temperature is reached. Thermostat should open and a good bit of the water will "sink" into the depth of the radiator. If you have no radiator cap, observe the temperature guage. When it reaches normal operating temp, when the thermostat opens, the temp will drop briefly at first, and you will notice warm air from the heater/defroster.
Once engine is warm and known to be full of water, seal radiator cap and/or system, and let idle for 30 minutes. Use this time to locate the "mystery leak." They can be very hard to find, and some won't leak until after the engine is turned off. During this idle period, observe the vehicle exhaust from the tailpipe as well as looking for actual water leaks: sometimes a bad head gasket can be diagnosed this way; if the exhaust is white and thick like steam, and smells like anit-freeze, you have a more serious problem. It is possible that after the repeated overheating cycles you have endured you may now have both a "mystery leak" and a blown head gasket.
Once leak is located, your next step is to let engine cool completely, drain the water, fix the leak, and then and only then add new antifreeze of the proper rating and ratio recommended by Chevy for your vehicle.
Anytime you drain a cooling system and refill it, it is necessary to check the overflow bottle at least 3 times in the first week after repair to ensure that you have the proper coolant level, and have not either missed another leak or not correctly repaired one. You MUST check it before you drive the vehicle the second time after the first repair attempt because it is normal to need to add more coolant than you added initially after the repair because of air trapped in the cooling system that will only be expelled after the first start/stop heating cycle. If after 1 week of daily normal driving you have only added a little more coolant once, and there are no more problems, you can be very comfortable that you have fixed your car.

Coolant is needed to be refilled often and there is no leak


You need to have your coolant system pressure tested. This will tell you wether it is leaking into the cylinders or the exhaust chamber. Use the finger test on the exhaust pipe. If it has a strong pungent odor like preston antifeeze then it's a head gasket problem. Hope this helps. Good luck!

2004 Chevy Impala no heat from defrost or heater


No heat is often a symptom of low coolant, usually followed by overheat. There are other controls that regulate heater, but right now, re-fill the cooling system with engine running and heater on high, then check for leaks (coolant you lost went somewhere...you need to determine where) Low coolant will damage your engine. Take care of that first, then if heater still does not work, then do diagnosis on that. (if you loose the engine heat won't matter, will it!)
