    Default Alto Over Heating Issue

    Can any one help me to solve the issue that I am getting now a days with my Alto-2007 model. I am using coolant since I bought it. But now, my car heat up. Even though I have replaced the coolant but after 1 week all the coolant is burn and I am getting the heat up issue. When my car is stuck in traffic or in idle condition.

    I have also service my car radiator and checked all the pipes for leakage but still getting this issue.

    if the fan is auto, it most probably is installed.
    get it out and checked whether its functioning correctly and not getting stuck
    check radiator cap as well(i guess in radiator service portion it was covered?)

    Check for the leaks through out the cooling system. Prominent leakage points:
    All rubber hose pipes.
    Metal pipe between the lower and middle rubber hose pipes.
    Water Body.
    Replace radiator cap with a good quality original one.

    if all else have been checked and corrected (radiator, radiator cap, fan thermostat valve, hoses etc) and the car is still overheating then u should check the head-gasket failure too..
    a simple test to check if the head gasket is blown or not:
    1) start the engine when its cold, (best time is to check it in morning when the car has rested overnight)
    2) remove the radiator cap and check if bubbles (as shown in video below) are formed or not..if formed it might be an indication of a blown head-gasket..
    here is a sample video:
