Sometimes just a bit of dirt or grit, take the cap off, and give it a good wash under hot running water. If it still leaks, you will need to replace it.

Adding coolant little few times a month no leaks notice could it be degas cap. Head gasket going bad


It could be the radiator cap, a small leak in the radiator, or a small head gasket leak.
Many auto stores or shops can test the cap.
If there is a leak on the radiator, it will often cause a stain which you could look for.
If there is a leak into a cylinder, it will often cause a difference in the colour of the spark plug.

Radiator leak


Absolutely, there's a ton of epoxy's and resin's you can buy now days to fix this, but you will also need a vented radiator cap to prevent pressure from re-opening leak. I used a certain gasket sealer to fix multiple cracks in a plastic radiator and it still holds to this day!

Check that the fan is working properly, whether it is electric or a belt driven fan. A car will overheat if the fan doesn't function as originally designed.

My 1996 chevy suburban wont start


If you plugged the original leak (which sounds like the head gasket) and then the radiator was leaking, and you are having water coming out of the exhaust, then you need to replace the head gaskets. It sounds like you had a blown head gasket from the start. Here's what to do.

1. Replace the head gaskets (will need intake manifold gasket as it need to come off for this procedure).

2. Replace thermostat, radiator cap (if radiator is still good)

3. Replace water pump; the water pump may have stopped working (mechanical), which in turn caused the pressure to build an blow the head gasket (the cause of the pump would be a bad thermostat. If the truck was overheating, then the thermostat was bad to begin with, then the pump, then the head gasket, so then the only place left for the water to go is out the exhaust.

Here is a list of replacements:

^ water pump
^ thermostat
^ head gaskets
^ valve cover gaskets
^ radiator cap (if radiator is good)
^ radiator : if leak from cap caused any damage to radiator (should still be good)

**Also check the radiator hoses to ensure they do not have any "bubbles". Hot water over time (with anti-freeze) erodes the inside of the hoses, and begins to "dig" holes and grooves in the hose, which evetually cause leaks. Consider replacing these as well for safe measure.

Please, let me know if you need further assistance.

Vehicle leaking


You should have the cooling system and radiator cap pressure tested. It sounds like a bad radiator cap, but the pressure test should locate the exact cause.

I Want to replace front fork seals on my 2004 Yam XT660X and need to know Fluid and Quantity used. Are there any manuals available for this model. I have replaced seals on some of my previous bikes.


If you want to replace them for maintainence ok.If its for a leak ,try this.Get some camera film negative.Usually in the pack of photos.Cut the notches off the side and cut one end at 45%.Slide it up into the fork seal.Now,with a sawing motion ,move it up and down and at the same time,work it around the seal.Any grit that is causing the leak will be felt.When grit is felt,pull it out,clean it and start again.It may take a few times but it works.A lot cheaper than seals all the time.Hope this helps
