Sad to say but the motor has a blown head gasket. You would need a new head gasket and some tools especially a torque wrench. When removing the head gasket make sure you mark the belt and put it back in the same position. Goodluck.

Tip

Heater core


2.3l, 4 cyl.
If you need to replace the heater core it's really easy. Maybe 30 mins if you know what your doing. Remove the hoses (truck cold) from the heater core in the engine compartment (reclaim excess coolant that comes out). Remove screws from the passenger compartment fire wall area (inside), remove and reinstall heather core. Replace lost coolant. It's that simple.

My engine ran low on water and subsequently overheated, since re-filling the water, it now continues to overheat. in a best case senario, i'm hoping it's an air block, can you tell me where the bleed...


If your coolant level dropped you have a leak in the system. Just adding coolant will not solve the problem, as it will continue to overheat. You should have a pressure test done to determine where the leak is. To bleed the system you have to slide back the hose going onto the heater core. At the back of the engine you will see two hoses going thru the fire wall. The hose on the left has a hole in it. Loosen the clamp ,slide the hose back . Add coolant to the system until it flows freely from the hole.Push hose back onto pipe ,tighten the clamp. Start the engine and turn on heater controls to high and run engine until normal operating temp is reached. Stop engine and check coolant level in the expansion tank and add if necessary.

Car overheated and lost all power. how do I get it to start?


ENGINE NOT GOING TO START IF GET TOO HOT FIRST THING I WOULD REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP THEN ADD COOLANT UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL CORRECT THATS WHEN THERMOSTAT OPEN UP AND TOP HOSE HOT.CHECK FOR LEAKING RADIATOR HOSES CHECK TOP RADIATOR HOSE CHECK BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSE.CHECK FOR LEAKS AROUND THE RADIATOR LOOK DOWN BELOW COOLANTS FANS CHECK FOR LEAKS AT RADIATOR CORES OR LEAKS AT THE RADIATOR PLASTIC SIDE CONTAINERS. CHECK FOR LEAKS AT WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE AND CHECK FOR LEAKS AT THE HEATER HOSES AROUND ENGINE BLOCK TO THE HEATER CORE HOSES. THERE IS A REASON CAR OVERHEAT.IF CAR OVERHEAT WHILE DRIVING YOU HAVE FAULTY THERMOSTAT OR LEAKING OUT COOLANT OR BLOWN HEAD GASKET.IF ENGINE OVER HEAT WHILE SITTING DURING A LONG IDLING PERIOD.YOU COULD HAVE FAULTY COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OR FAULTY COOLING FAN FUSE OR RELAY.HOT WIRE COOLANT TO SEE IF IT RUNS IF NO REPLACE FAN MOTOR. IF YES FAN MOTOR COULD HAVE FAULTY WIRE OR PCM FAILURE. CHECK ENGINE CRANKCASE IF OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE ENGINE HEAD GASKET LEAKING.

My car just started to note that I needed to check my coolant level ab out a week ago. I would pour coolant in, and it would leak out. I thought it might of been when the A/C was on, but it was leaking a...


There are a few connections ports that need to be checked. if you cannot find the leak at these places then that happens at the seal of the water pump. When the water pump seal is bad then time to replace the water pump. Why? it is the same labor for the job. Hope that you don't get overheat. This is happening when your water pump is not turning: broken bearings.

Therefore check these following connections first, sometimes the rubber hoses get deteriorated then the clamps need to be tightened to minimize the leak.
1- Upper hose connect to radiator.
2- Lower hose connect to bottom radiator and engine port that is water pump inlets
3- Over flow hose.
4- 2 Heater hoses coming to the fire walls.
Hope this can help.

Leaking collant close to fire wall


Coolant at this location usually indicates one of your heater hoses are leaking, many times at the end of the hose. The heater hoses are the ones approximately an inch in diameter. If there is no coolant on the inside of the vehicle floorboard, it's most likely just a hose.

Prizm overheats, heater core leaks, no heat


You can bypass the core or fix it that's up to you but I would change or remove the thermostat first. If it still overheats then start looking at the water pump and radiator. Hope this helps. Good luck.

POSSIBLE LEAK FROM THE TUBE CONNECTED TO THE FIREWALL.


pipe going to the fire wall is usualy the cabin heater. for the time being there should be 2 hoses going to the fire wall coolant in/out. remove them from the pipe on the fire wall and blank them off or if the hose is split replace them. it could be the heater core but that usualy leaks into the cab.
