    Default Fire in the hole - khyber 97 heatup issue

    My car's burnt off four gas kits, 4 water bodies and a half a dozen radiator pipes!


    The car heats up way too much, the radiator cant take it, one pipe or the bursts or leaks, the gas kits burns off, some seal in the water body breaks, radiator water gets into the engine, the car breaks down, and i get screwed.


    Ive already had the radiator and most of its pipes changed, ive also changed the fan and put in a relay to give it max speed.


    Ive just installed a new ac and i cant use it cause of this problem! After in breaks down and i get it all fixed, it works fine for about a month, and then it goes bad all over again. No mechanic has been able to figure out what the 'real' problem is, ive even checked the wiring and all. Any idea what the root cause is?!

    Getting it to a good mechanic that is well known for rebuilding engines would solve your problem, how many kilometers has that engine gone through yet? And what is the condition of the HEAD and the BLOCK?

    The engine done almost 300,000 km! the head is in pretty good shape, there was a minor problem which my mechanic fixed. You think i should get it rechecked? and could the problem be electrical?!

    the head's not cracked, thats for sure. The block, im not sure. I will get that checked. Anything else you think i should look at? And again, can the problem be electrical?





    An off topic question.: My A/C's blow is not all that great, i heard something about putting up double relays on the ac or something. Any idea how that goes??

    car is building pressure. new head gasket will do nothing unless head and block are in perfect level

    ur mechanics need to be slapped to death no offense,
    the many times u went for repair again and again

    put relay with blower, it will be better

    I feel the head is faced tooooo many times so you need to change the head and check block as well.

    3 Nali radiator dondho of old charade diesel original japanese local jali wala mut leina bhai its useless they will claim its gr8 and all dont beleive them. Dont put coure's japanese radiator. Agar bilkul na mila pura Pakistan sey phir kisi acha radiator wala sey banwa lo with japaneseeee jali 3 nali (channel) :p logo ke batao main mut ana ka es ke zarorat nahi hai and blah blah they dun kno anything.


    And gaskit should be genuine.

    3 Bottles of Caltex Coolant is must.

    All pipes must be original japanese dun fit in local or korean or chinese pipes go to 2nd hand market find original pipes.


    Prob solved

    Phir chaha sibi chala jao with a/c gari garam nahi hogi. Main thing is finding 3 nali charade diesel radiator it will be hard to find though.

    I did all above to my charade petrol/CNG 1.0 and beleive me in any heat with a/c on car heats up to not more than 25%. and i even went to Nathia Gali with A/C on again not more than 25% heat :p If i direct my fan than heat needle with a/c drops down to 10%. So i finished the heat prob :p

    One of the things that sets the alarm with me, is the fact that after ive driven the car for a while, the a burning smell comes off from the place where you put in the engine oil!! Any idea what that is?

    Also, im a bit concerned about engine power, speed and acceleration. Any tips on some of the things i can do to improve those??(my car has already done almost 300,000 kms)
