I have a 2003 suzuki ario. I'm not to sure why it over heats when ran too long. I tried putting seal-up into radiator. Before i did that the sensory lights would come on. Now engine light comes on. I don't...

Lots of reason a car over heats, water pump not working properly, radiator clogged or leaking, thermostat gone bad or stuck, not enough coolant, air leaking in, etc. lots of things to check. My guess you need new radiator since you put stop leak n it.

Why is my coolant overflowing when my 2006 Chevy equinox heats up?

thet moment stop your engine and grab top radiator hose, feel the heat then grab lower radiator hose they have to be hot same heat. Top hose very hot is radiator blockage, Or lower hose very hot thermostat damage ,for test thermostat tide whith a string or wire have one glass cold water and juck boiling water deep thermostat in and you have to see the opening if is not then you have to replace it. Don ever youse radiator flush with the thermostat on. Blown head gasket means continual air bubble when you remove radiator cap special white froth,check for loose or damage hose and heter leaks when cooling system is under pressure.check low and high rpm exhaust fumes.

I have 260K on my 2004 2.7 santa fe. A little steam escapes from the top of the radiator when it is up to temp. It has never overheated (yet), but I am worried that I need a new radiator. I have never...

Well i suggest to never use stop leak because it will clog up cooling ports not only in the radiator but the engine also. I would flush the whole system you can purchase a flush kit at a local parts store. it is usually a cleaner that you run threw the system let the engine get up to temp for a while then drain everything after it cools down and take the thermostat out of the system usually i will leave the hose disconnected at the thermostat instead and stick a water hose in the radiator turn on and let it flush sometimes you have to start your vehicle but make sure you don't over heat it. If you can tell that there is a crack in the radiator i would replace it stop leak in my line of work is a no no it causes more issues that solves. If you have any more questions pleas let me know and leave good feedback please.

My daughters Acer 5536 overheats and turns itself off after a couple of hours of non stop use. Is it a fan issue or a common known problem and do you have a fix ? Thx

Remove the fan with heat sink - underneath is the CPU. Remove and re-apply the silicon compound between the CPU and heat sink. After time, the compound becomes dry and the heat absorption deteriorates. The purpose of it is to efficiently transfer the heat to the heat sink radiator to keep it cool - if the CPU reaches the maximum temperature threshold, it will shut down.

Small hole in bottom of radiator drips

There are products out there like stop leak that MIGHT stop the radiator leak. However... the only real repair is either to have it soldered (if the end caps are not plastic) or replace the radiator all together.

Adding a product like "Stop Leak" most often starts to introduce other problems to your vehicle like a future water pump seal failure or clogs in the smaller water passages in the engine block, heads and manifolds and the thermostat heater bypass hole. Anyone that has ever done any major engine repairs will know immediately if stop leak was used in a cooling system.

The best fix is to replace the radiator.

Many radiators today can not be repaired

Stop leak is in most any auto parts store. Just be advised of what you can expect down the road.


1. warmer than usual engine operating temps
2. water pump seal failure
3. heatrer core clog (no heat)
4. passenger heat control temp valve clog (no heat)
The choice is yours. Personally I would not do the "Stop Leak" treatment attempt. Sometimes it works other times it does not.

Where do i add radiator stop leak in a 2001 taurus

Remove radiator cap with engine cold, remove enough fluid so it can be replaced with stop leak. Add all stop leak & top off with anti freese. Put cap back on & start engine. Run engine for at least 20 minutes or take for a drive. Leak should stop if not too severe.Hope this advice helps if so rate accordingly. Good luck!

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive

Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.

Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Flush good.

Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.

Stop leak can plug everything.

Also.......not likely causing over heating....but your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.
