    Question My Swift 90 radiator/ heating problem

    Well guys here i am with yet another problem of mine
    My car is heating up , even on the most shortest distance. My radiator doesnt have any leakage issues.
    Whenever i face a issue I always consult 2 mechanics at least both of them know my car, one is telling me to get it serviced the other is telling me to change thats making it an expensive investment of around 4200 ( mazdoori alag ) .
    But how would i know that is the radiator problem, water pump can be defective too , isnt it ???
    I am not willing to spend 4200 untill and unless i gets the confirmation of the problem.

    Regards,
    Khurram

    Are u using coolant?
    check radiator fan, thermostat , working properly
    Radiator ko check karo us main rust tu nehi. if there is rust , service it.
    Use coolant, if u r not using.
    if problem is still there. check water pump

    Open radiator cap, start the car, accelerate a couple of times, the water inside should move here and there...might create a little whirlpool.. if it does means your system is circulating water. If not, check rad for clogging first & then water pump.

    check for coolant. if you've been using tap water possibility is water pump corroded and not doing its function with water circulation - change it.
    check for radiator cap -
    check for thermostat it may be stuck - change it
    check for fans auto switching - get it fixed

    come back to forum after checking above stuff and post results

    Check that the fins of the radiator are not corroded off, if they are the radiator will not work, Also check the coolant intake pipe that connects the lower radiator pipe to the engine. If it is blocked cooling water will not circulate in the engine and radiator core.

    Thanks Guys , Your advises really helped me out. Radiator fins were deadly damaged right behind the bumper . SO i just changed the radiator and everything is back to normal
    Would also like to share some price info that when i was searching for a radiator i came to know that there were two typos in new radiator one for Rs. 3500 and another one was 4200, Mostly in marked 3500 walas were available, But i was low on budget aur abhi salary bhi nahi ayee lol tou i went to plaza and i came to know a guy who was well experienced in this radiator fanda, He took me to the market as i told him that my budget is low, But mentally i was prepared for 3500 wala , He took me to one place and we found a radiator for 2800, it was almost like new but low quality, then he took me to another place and we checked for the radiator, they guy there showed us the radiator almost like new, he got that from hyderabad , i asked him about the details and he told me ( K japani jali pe kaam hoker wahi se aik banda le kar atta hai and meri guarantee hai k kafi arsay aapki jaan ***** jayegi ) the radiator is working fine Mashallah and it costed me 2200 Rupees
    so kuch savings hoi and my car is flying now .

    make sure your engine thermostat is in place and change the metal water intake pipe (it will be blocked more than 50% if you were using water, fill with proper branded coolant mixture minimum conc. of 30:70 (30% coolant) for Karachi.

    Make sure to only use distilled water for diluting coolant. Your engine will serve you without complain. (mechanics will hate you --- that I can assure)
