    Default SE Saloon heatup - PLZ HELP!!!

    my SE Saloon is driven in 15000 kms and its started causing problems

    it is overheating in traffic conditions

    45 mins in stationary position, the car did not over heat

    i just took the car for a 1 min drive and it started to heat-up from its standard half way position upwards

    even at 80% heat as per gauge, there was no leakage of water/ coolant

    i filled the radiator last last night and it was full in the morning

    usually radiators wont leak overnight. go for a drive and then check if ur coolant / water is missing from the radiator. if yes... then do the following to check for the waterbody.

    fill the radiator full and dont close it... then start the engine and accelerate... if the water jumps from the radiator then ur water-body has messedup... if not then check for a rust in ur radiator that might have caused from the leakage.
    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"

    SE saloon's have long life coolant in them I think they last 100,000 km or so. Is your gauge showing heat up or have you visually saw the engine had heated up?

    t can be a faulty gauge or the temperature sensor wire roaming around in the engine bay getting earth from some point.

    the problem has been identified

    now your help is required in finding a solution

    the problem is that the cooling fan is not working cuz it has broke off from the motor it was connected to

    the motor is running but according to the mechanic it isnt running smooth

    the indus 3s dealer eastern motors has given me a minimum estimate of Rs.11,350 [motor=9000, fan=1500, labor charges min.=850]

    in my view the problem can be sorted out by me personally fitting the fan.... cuz the motor is running nonetheless ....

    i would like to save as much money as would be wise, kindly help

    Go to shersha (2nd hand market) and look for fan/motor etc.

    Get a used motor from second hand market. No npoint in spending so much on a new one. It is easily available.

    ok... now u can do the following

    if u haven't altered the engine by installing cng... go directly to toyota and claim it under warranty. initially toyota dudes would tell u that thats not covered under warranty but trust me its all under warranty. if somehow u fail to get it under warranty, try to claim it from your insurance company if u r in good terms with them. but i think u should be able to do it with the warranty card.
    previous models consisted of 25k km / 1year from date of purchase...
    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"
