SOURCE: My VW Cabrio is overheating after 1-2 miles.


Run the engine and look at the header tank , is there lots of air bubbles coming back out of the water if is then the head gasket may have split and that is down to either a can of Radweld or a strip down repair

If the radiator is not uniformly hot them I would go for that as your problem

Normal operation is that the engine starts the thermostat is closed , engine block heats up and opens water starts to circulate around the block

So to check that you need to fill the radiator with cold water run it for a few minutes check the bottom hose it should be cold

The stat opens and the bottom hose should get hot as the water from the block is pumped into the radiator for cooling.

The radiator should get hot all over and the cooling fan should kick in when the sensor hits the over limit stop.

If that does not happen then get someone to remove the stat altogether (It is only there to get the engine block warm quickly in cold regions )

In which case the bottom hose should go from cold to warm to hot

Replace petcock assembly and any gasket to tank. Not an item you want to play around with too much because of risk of fire.

What type coolant to use in my 2006 honda 750 spirit, and do i fill it from bottom reserve tank or the top


Use only non silica formula anti freeze like OEM Honda or GM Dexcool , the scrubbing particles in automotive antifreeze can damage the ceramic seal in you motorcycle water pump. To change the antifreeze, find the low point of the system. Some cycles have a drain on the bottom of the radiator. Most have a small drain bolt located on the water pump housing cover. Place a pan under the drain bolt, loosen the radiator cap (this will allow the anti freeze to flow faster), and remove the drain bolt. Replace the drain bolt. To top up or fill the system, first, fill the radiator to the top. Replace the radiator cap, then locate the over flow tank and fill it to the full mark. After short drive and a cool down period , recheck the level in the over flow bottle and top up the radiator and over flow bottle as needed.

What coolant do I put in the reservoir for a Honda Shadow Aero 2006?


Honda pro makes a coolant and it is recommended to continue with the manufactors coolant due to additives that may or may not be in place for that brand of bike. You can purchase that from a varity of online sources or at your local honda dealer.

My hose lost radiator fluid on my 04 Honda shadow aero 750 so I may as well change the radiator fluid. How do I do this?


Replace the broken hose and put it in the same way as in the old ones.
Refill your coolant reservoir until full with proper coolant then turn on your bike, let it idle until coolant overflows from reservoir. When that happens turn off the bikle, fop up the coolant reservoir and put the cap on. You're now good to use it. Tomorrow, when engine still cold, check your reservoir and top up again if required.
Good enough?
