Question about 1993 kawasaki GTR 1000

Open Question

Hi My 1986 GTR 1000 overheats as soon as I slow down around town and leaves a coolant puddle. It was dinged some time ago and some of the fins in the radiator are bent over - could this be the problem, or at that age is the water pump likely to be the problem - should I replace both? - can I fir a bigger radiator? Thanks John Marshall

SOURCE: overheat

first is your coolant full and do your fans come on? if your thermostat is stuck it can over heat. run the motor and place your hand on the radiator it should get warm and if it dose there should not be any cold spots, if they don't get warm it could be the T stat.if your water pump was out it would over heat very quickly and there is no reson that your water pump should not work unless you removed that side cover. also if you ride the bike and all things are ok at 40 mph it should be fine even if your fans don't work.

SOURCE: 1992 kawasaki vulcan 1500:

The air should bleed out until coolant appears at the housing.
If air keeps coming back maybe a head gasket problem.
Is the cap good

Overheating


-Make sure the system is not clog. (flush with garden water hose in both direction)
-Make sure the radiator's fins are not clog. This is the biggest problem that the Mechanic can't figure out.
*If the fins are clog, Best thing to clean is use presure washer. Carefull ! Do not aim too closed and angle. You'll damage the fins)

This will take care the problem.

My 1995 toyota tercel runs a little warm at highway speeds-if i slow down it cools down,it never overheats


most probably the rad is getting plugged, or not transfering heat to the fins, get a new one, and replace the thermostat , fill with new coolant

99 Sunfire Coolant keeps dumping


You need to find the source of the leak. it hasn't overheated yet because you keep catching it and re-filling. From your description, it sounds a lot like a bad water pump seal (part of pump) but without physically looking you can't be sure of that. when the pump seal begins to fail, internal pressure while running often will drive the seal tighter against the shaft stopping the leak. as pressure drops as the engine cools, the seal relaxes and permits seepage.
With time, that will change and it will leak all the time.

Classic signs of a bad water pump. When on the freeway, the circulation of coolant through the system is increased due to the speed but once you slow down, it will tend to overheat. Please post back with any other questions or just to rate the solution. Thanks very much!

1995 Diamante overheats on hills.


Hi,
The heating up as you build revs, to me, indicates a partially oped thermostat. If it hasn't been replaced, I would do so. It's inexpensive and easy enough to do. Make sure you get a gasket with it.
The rattling thing is another matter. Do you think it is the water pump that is rattling? Does it ever drip from under your engine all the time?
Just curious...
Hope this helps... Good luck!

Overheating on my acura legend 1991 i replaced thermostat and when the car idles it fine, as soon as a drive it a mile down the road it overheats blowing coolant out the over flow tank.and both cooling...


Ding ding ding ding! You guessed correct, the head gasket is bad. The usual sign for head gaskets gone bad is coolant mixing with the oil on the dipstick but not so on some of the overhead cams. I just finished tearing my 91 acura down after replacing two themostats as advised by a "mechanic with 20 plus years". Its not the water pump I'd say. Its a tough job to do but a possible one if you have some know- how and a ton of patience. If you are going to replace the head gasket, you may as well do the timing belt, waterpump, and the three drive belts. You're half-way there with the motor tore down. Its VERY expensive for a repair shop to do and you may want to check around before getting it done.
