Connect 1.8tdci overheating issue.


Does the temp gauge read hot or no?
If cracked it can push pressure into the tank to make it seem like it's boiling but this also means the water will leak back into engine when cooling. Do you have a grey goo on your dipstick when you check the oil?
If yes then YES block is history.

Getting popping noise from water heater after shower


Popping sound is caused by sediment built up in bottom of tank: air bubbles get trapped when heating starts, and then they crackle, rumble etc when free.
Clean out sediment:

Water in reserve tank boiling from radiator


well the reserve thank usually holds excess water. basically when water gets hot it expands and increases in size, the expansion causes some of it to go into the reserve and it can be very hot even boiling..

did this happen before or is it strange ?
notice any other problems while driving around, noises, engine overheating ?
does the radiator fans turn on ??

Overheating coolant boiling out into reserve tank


you have a blown head gasket.. doesn't have to have coolant in the oil for a blown head gasket... if hoses are rock hard when running then you have exhaust leaking into the coolant via a blown head gasket...

The car was overheating i checked all hoses and replaced the thermostat the radiator it still is ovrheating and the water is boiling in the overflow tank


Answer could be a faulty thermostat,or it could be a sign that your head gasket is about to blow ,or last of all your timing could be out of sync.

Answer 2 from Inventus: It means your cooling system is funtioning properly. In a system having a coolant recovery tank, coolant in the radiator is always up to the brim, hot or cold. There is negligible or no air space. When coolant in the radiator expands sufficiently due to warming from the engine, it will squeeze past the pressure cap's bottom seal and flow into the recovery tank. (If no provision for such expansion was present, the expansion would rupture the radiator or your hoses.) Only coolant within the radiator is under pressure, and because of this pressure (together with the elevated boiling point that the "anti-freeze" permits), it normally does not boil. But once past the pressure cap's bottom seal, the overflow is at atmospheric pressure and therefore boils.
This boiling is usually unnoticed after a short, i.e., local, trip because the cooler coolant already in the recovery tank quenches it. But after some highway driving the influx of more hot overflow heats up all the coolant in the recovery tank to the (unpressurized, i.e., "natural") boiling point.
As the engine cools when shut off, the contracting coolant in the radiator sucks back coolant from the recovery tank. Fluid in the recovery tank should never be below the "full hot" or "full cold" marks, lest air be sucked in.
-- BETTER ANSWER ==
Your cooling fans are not turning on. It is not normal for your overflow tank to boil like that. It is true that your radiator is overflowing into the reserve tank, but that means yourr adiaotor is boiling. Check for blown fuses or relays for your cooling fans. IF theya re fine. run your engine for about 15 minutes and drive. When you temp level is at normal operating temp open your hood with the engine runing and see if your fans are on. If they are, then you may have a bad thermostat or a plugged radiator, or a bad water pump. If the fans are not on, get your cooling fan switch replaced if your car has one. Check your temp sending sensor

Antifreeze boiling over when car is overheatind and Wen its not overheating changed thermostat radiator bled and flushed it changed temperature switch no oil and water mixture No smoke


Check the over flow tank located in front of the passenger side glove box for water or fluid. When driving the car, listen by the glove box to see if you car hear a boiling sound. If you can hear water boiling or moving, check your heater core to make sure it is not plugged or bad. When the car starts to over heat, does the gauge register that it is getting hot? If it doesn't then check the thermostat to make sure it is not stuck open or closed. If its over heating and the gauge is not showing that the car is running hot before boiling over, then the thermostat is defective or not working. Try replacing it again.

First shower of the day is cold, second is hot, what could it be? Hot water starts out cloudy, then clears up when it sits awhile. There's also a rumbling sound when hot water is turned on, not when cold...


You might try draining your hot water tank with a hose. Sometimes crud and corrosion can build up in the bottom of the tank. Excessive buildup of sediment in bottom of tank CAN is cause overheating of tank bottom and boiling of water to occur.
I would turn off the water heater (use the breaker), connect a hose to the bottom and drain it out. You may want to take a look and see what comes out of it. This is an easy thing to do and you don't have to call anyone out. Good luck!

P1299... watr bottle keeps emptying..


The definition for that code is p1299 Cylinder head over temperature protection active. If your overflow tank (water bottle) is emptying check the oil for water contamination (it will look milky) also look at the exhaust for excessive white smoke, you may have a bad head gasket and hopefully not a cracked or warped head. Does the engine run alright? Has it overheated?
