I have spectra 01--- It was overheating bcoz my radiator was leaked so I installed another radiator today....but still my car is heating and temperature risen to almost centre....
After changing radiator I had a test drive of 4-5km(without a/c) after returning when I opened the radiator cap lot of boiled water came out and some steam....
so anyone hv any idea what the problem is ? Is this gasket prob (I heared if your car get heated to the hot point then sometime it causes gasket problem & on last sunday my car temperature got at the end coz of radiator leakage)
BRO just check the Radiator cap .. and replace it ..
also change the Fan ..
coz some time Fan dosent run properly or in full speed . then Radiator water got boiled ..
that was happend in ma CIVIC 95 due to fan OFF ..
so check the fan still working in full speed and replace the Radiator Cap ...
if your car heated up badly with the old radiator the gasket might be blown
to check this fill your radiator with water before a cold start and place the cap tightly now start the car for few minutes and open the cap if the water bubbles out then there is a leak in the gasket you will notice bubbles on the surface
the pressure from the engine is entering the radiator thus forcing the water out
