    Angry Radiator Problem in Mehran VXR-CNG

    Dear Pak Wheelers,

    I own a very well maintained Suzuki Mehran Car VXR-CNG model 2006. My car's radiator is not leaking, I have replaced water body as well but still after 1-2 days car radiator gets empty and as a result car gets extra hot after a short run. This problem is occuring from last 2 months. Most oftenly i drive my car on CNG with A/C on. Please sueggest what are the possible reasons since apparently there is no leakage.

    check or change yr car radiator cap it might be possible that it is developing pressure and hot water run out from the reserve bottle
    u can't check it because it happens only when u are driving car

    dont forget - easy money, they take Rs 200/- for 5 minutes of work while ensuring that the car becomes a regular PITA for the owner so the owner brings the car back for more Rs 200/- per 5 minute jobs.

    Lets get back to the topic now

    There must be a tiny leak somewhere. I say change the hoses and the radiator cap as well. Buy the genuine radiator cap and don't compromise on quality in this matter.

    Get your radiator pressure checked and inspect the coolant/water for head gasket failure. Fill it up, crank the engine, let it idle for couple of minutes and then rev gently to see if there are any bubbles in the water. Also inspect the water for any slime or gunk... a bit brownish yellow in color. If thats the case then it's the ehad gasket.

    Hopefully if you do what I said in the beginning, your issue will be resolved. Remember, start with the simplest and cheapest remedies.

    Hope your issue gets resolved
    Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.

    Dear Babar,

    First of all please advice whether 120km/h on AC and CNG? if yes, unbelievable for Mehran second if only on CNG without AC then its noticeable, i have mehran 2009 VXR CNG, acceptable temperature speed on AC CNG (highway) max 90-100 KM/h, above hundred it also raises temperature more than half, when lower the speed upto 100 it gets normal i think this is an attribute which every mehran has rest the maestros here on PW will advice.

    Regards,
    S K
