    Default Corolla Problem.. Urgent help needed (panicslayer)

    My frnd has 1998 1.6GLi corolla (Indus Shape)...... the problem is very strange. It heats up with AC.... Radiator is fine, fan is fine, Head gasket is fine. Last night when he told me abt this problem, i asked, when did u check radiator water and engine oil for the last time... He literally didn't remember abt the radiator coolant check, may b 3 months ago, he might checked it (doubt ) So i checked and amazingly i didn't have to add even a single drop as it was full as u just filled it.... and engine oil has done 5000Kms was still in good shape and size





    Plz suggest, what the problem could be then?

    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    check the relay of the 2nd fan ( the a/c one), check thermostat valve,

    if it only heats up with the a/c and dosent seem to have a gasket problem then probrably is a fan issue
    or that the radiator isnt upto the mark, cooling wise.

    take it to Mukaram ustaaz, Tehkal, if you want his number tell me and ill gviveit to you.

    Thanx mukaram is a buddy

    @redsony

    I don't know akhtare..... mukaram is very down to earth person and very shareef.... khurshid is a bit proud but he's a nice man too (not wid the new comers)... as i have gap shap with em so i can pinch him anytime job satisfaction and charges... they are head to head.... But sometimes i find khursheed a lil better than mukaram and sometimes i find mukaram a lil better than khursheed

    ive only had work done by mukaram so he is the best for me, sometimes i use ilyas for stuff which is above mukarams head. mukaram is a buddy so theres not an issue there..

    overall i prefer mukaram but my whole family goes to hamidullah, he is the best there is.
