    The most close match is the radiator of Mehran, you may get it for approx Rs.2500/=

    @testdriver
    Thanks for the reply, but Meharans also get heated up
    So I was thinking about putting in a Radiator of Some Bigger Car (that has more Pipping) that can fit in Suzuki Fx. Will Mehran's Radiator do the Trick ?
    Mmmm I dunno, any suggestions.
    Thanks again.

    My Fx is reducing water from Radiator. Phiscaly their is no leakage & its empties all the water in Extra bottle out side the radiator in just 30 to 40 Km drive & when water level goes low in radiatr it starts heating up which is due to deficiency of water. So what should i do ?

    If there is no apparent sign of leakage then I'm afraid the head gasket might need to be replaced. But do get it thoroughly checked by a good mechanic to confirm it.

    Its not necessary that your car's heating prob. is due to radiator only. i'll suggest you to consult your mechanic 1st then go to some radiator wala. in radiator wala's language they call "2 naali" or "3 naali" or more than that.... my radiator wala once suggested me to change my radiator from "2 naali" to "3 naali" locally modified one... but after having serviced my "2 naali" radiator it stopped soaking the water nor my fx is getting hot Mashallah.

    Therefore my recommendation is to get it checked from some good mechanic(s). I'll recommend to take advise from more than 2 mechanics as some times it helps.

    Regards,

    ALI

    @imranbhatti
    if there is no aparent leak then the radiator cap is faulty... it has a spring and a rubber in it and when the pressure rises due to steam the spring compresses and the water goes to the bottle...
    change it and i think taht your problem will be solved....
    its all about power to weight ratio...

    i am not sure 2.0 D radiator will fit well in ur FX or not, but it fits well in charade etc. it's one of its kind. rugged and long lasting and smaller in size.

    btw, need to check 3 things
    gasket, water pump/ bearing , radiator cap/hoses.

    radiator might not have any leakage but the pipe that goes into the engine might got a leak...
    as my car also does the same and i went to my mamoo's workshop and he found the issue in the pipe that goes into the engine, not talking abt the plastic pipe it was some lohay ka "L" shaped chota sa pipe
    btw i have a huyndai excel
