    Default Baleno Overheat - What to do

    Hello Friends,

    On highway my baleno got overheat due to house pipe breakage....after pipe replacement it wont start....what could be the reason....do you assume the gaskit got damaged? If yes should I bring this in Suzuki workshop or I can find a food mechanic in local city, infact car got stucked in Mian Channu city.

    When car was heatup, the water drops came out from silencer, this shows gaskit burn out?

    The pipes were perfectly OK, does this mean there was some presure due to gaskit which has blasted the house pipe?

    I have seen in forums that EFI car wont start if local mechanics do the head work, is it true?

    Please advise the best.

    yaar shari99 bhai listen
    till the half way, the temp needle works fine.. i.e gives true temp of the car.
    when it reaches half gauge says 50% hot... but in the above case and also in my case the actual temp was greater than 50%.. say 85% which resulted in damage to engine..

    my idea to install bigger cooling system was to keep the needle below 50% so that a true pictue of temp is obtaied. since the gauge shows true picture till the 50%mark.

    and at the moment my cars automatic radiator fan is disabled.. means pankha har waqt chalta rehta hai.. and i have replaced both the motors of both frans.. and got my radiator serviced.. still the car shows 50% hot...
    i m still worried k shaid temp increase karta ho after 50 %...

    yara problem is not with needle, the problem is with f**king computer which s**ks at center line. The Suzuki people told what read here:

    Sir your car will not overheat as its suto system will keep it stable near center line. So you don;t need to worry, F**k off.

    Me too have 99 model and well maintained. The pipes were quite OK but after opening head we found both Head / Block needs to be faced. It seems it was overheated before I purchased and they didnt even fixed it but just replaced the GASKIT.

    OK, in my case engine has been saved as we had stopped the car when we felt it burning somewhere. The head needs to be redone because valves seals were burned and it got little damaged and face was necessary, the block was faced as well. Tomorow they will fix the head and start the car. I have replaced all the belts and pipes, It seems my total spendings on this incident would be nearly 6000 bucks.

    do you have any idea how much a genuine radiator cost for Baleno 99 ? I mean Kabli one....!

    I do not have good experience with desi Jalis's (Radiator). My vote goes to an original kabli radiator. I am planning to buy a kabli one,it may requires one time service but still it would be much better than desi one.

    Acha do you know that all baleno;s have same Raditor size and fitting? If so we may find like brand new from kabli market....in other words chorri ki gari ka agar mil jaye to?

    Hi guys,

    I also face the same kinda issue just 2 days back in my baleno. The mechanic told me to get the radiator serviced and I did that. But then again, the Temp guage rised a little above than 50% (50% Normal in my car).
    Now my car gets heated after almost 20 KM drive in city and when I stop it (Engine On) it gets to normal in almost 1 min. I checked that water level in radiator gets low and the radiator is not sucking any water from the side bottle. That remains at the same level before and after heat up.
    What could be the reason ??/ Any guess,
    One of my friend advised me to change the radiator cap as well as that might be causing the issue ... if this cap can also cause the heat issue ???

    If water level in the radiator is getting low. Then its time to check for leaks.

    Start the car, let it warm up. Then inspect hose pipes, including the ones that go to the heater core. Inspect radiator exterior for hairline cracks. Check for signs of seepage around the water pump area.

    If there are no external signs of leakage then the problem might be internal due to a blown head gasket. If the car has overheated during its lifetime then a blown head gasket might be the cause of radiator loosing coolant.

    The following signs indicate a blown head gasket:
    Colour of oil is not normal. It looks like colour of rust or chocolate brown.
    Oily residue in coolant in the radiator
    White smoke in the morning when starting the car.

    Hope this helps

    whiteangel: Thanks for all the suggestions, infact I have checked all the possible leakage areas, and no external leakage found, besides that the colour of oil is also normal and no smoke emitting out in morning. I am wondering now what could be the cause.
    The water level decrease in the radiator is only around 250 ml. I drive the car without switching on AC and it didnt heat up.
    any further things that I can monitor in next 2 or 3 days before going to any mechanic for the possible cause ??

    1. Dont try to get the HEAD resurfaced - Try to get a new engine - Why would you ask
    1.1 The engine will never get back to its original condition
    1.2 You will end up paying more money + TENSION
    1.3 Cars performance will be affected.

    Get wise do the following

    1. Get a double naali Radiator - Try Japani one's
    2. Fill it with COOLANT not WATER
    3. Get your FAN DIRECT

    be wise and get a new engine.....

    Hi guys...
    A very important question.....

    IF the Water level in the radiator is NOT decreasing, means there is not leackege of water through any source and the water lever of radiator is OK, then is there any chance of gaskit damage?????? Is the water leackege only cause of gaskit damage other than fan chocked? AND what if the water lever decreases by half a glass after 40-50 kms with AC on, is this fine?

    Thank you,
    Rizwan Ahmad

    baleno is one among a problematic car, sorry but such cars work fine as long as they are new.. i come across plenty of cases where balenos use to make their owners pockets empty.. hats off margalla!
    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron

    Its been 9 years now that I am using Baleno, and never find a single problem accept this Engine over heating, which I think should be after 9 Years. Point is how to identify the original cause of this issue.
    As I informed earlier, there is no leakage of water and no blow of water from radiator with Cap open. Also didnt find any sign of oil in water as well as water in Oil. Every thing seems fine.
    The good thing that I have done yesterday is I cleaned the radiator cap as that contains alot Rusty mud on it. Put that on the radiator and drive the car for almost 30 KM with AC with in the City and the car remains fine. The problem that I have found was that the Radiator was not sucking any water from the side bottle and now after clean up of cap, It seems that it start sucking the water from there and also releasing the pressure from the same pipe. Lets see How it goes in the next few days.

    Dear All, as i said earlier, I had cleaned up the radiator cap and the radiator starts sucking water from the side bottle however the issue remains same. The car is getting heatup with AC after 20 KM drive. Without AC it is OK.
    Also radiator is using alot of water i.e I filled the side bottle and after 20 KM there is no sign of water in that bottle. where that is going ?????
    I obseved very closely the beahviour of radiator and leakages as well but no sign of leakage is found.
    Any further suggestion as I will be moving to mechanic tomorrow ... and want to have a complete evaluation before that.

    Thanks for the quick response Anil.
    The problem that I am facing is that I didnt find any kind of leakage from any where even from the radiator, pipes etc etc however I ultimatley go to get my radiator checked.
    Please suggest any radiator work shop that can check the radiator using pressure as I dont know any one.

    @matifsiddiqui

    My Opinion:

    First you must inspect the cooling system of your car. It is not limited to radiator, you must check A to Z.

    Like first you check the condition of water, is it full of rust? means its chocked and need a service. If internally it is good then see the outside fins usually they block with dust. Open the raditor cap, start the engine give some race and see if water circulate inside raditor, if it does not circulate the problem is with water body. Even sometimes waterbody needs a service when it is full of rust / dirt or if gets week need to be replaced. Also note if water in radiator gives you bubbles or jumps out while you little race the engine, that's shows whether your gas kit blown or not.

    After that make your FAN speed is good and working perfect. The very important point is here, usually our mechanics do not aware about that. if your fan bracket is not well fitted or fan is sucking air from asides instead of fins of raditor then it would definite heatup your car. The fan should not suck air other than fins, this should be corrected.

    Also never full your side bottles, the level should ba maintained as per given marks on bottle.

    Another important thing is to check the radiator cap, check if rubber is hard then replace it immediately with a kabli one. The rubber washer of radiator cap should be soft and mold able else this would heath up your engine.

    The careful check of cooling system may resolve your heatup issues.
