hey fellow zookers!

i am having a bit of a problem with my 2002 suzuki jimny (M13A) motor. when i drive the car it pushes the water out of the radiator and into the over flow causing the engine to over heat. i have replaced radiator, radiator cap, thermostat and even changed the standard engine fan to a aftermarket electronic thermo fan. i have even put this stuff into the cooling system that people put into race cars incase the head is cracked or head gasket is broken and still no change. please help me out with this guys. i'm starting to run out of things to change.

thanks
stew

sounds like you might have a blocked rad, try disconnecting the hoses and running a hosepipe through it to check the flow.

if its not flowing through properly, itll force the coolant into the header tank when the engine is running

G'day mate,
Try taking of the radiator cap when engine is cold, put a wee bit of pipe into the top of raiator and the other end into a clear botle of water, start the engine and watch for bubbles, get a mate to rev it up, bubbles are exhaust gas, caused by a cracked head or burst gasket, usually between cylinders 2 and 3, to find out which one, cut out each cylinder one at a tym by pulling off the HT lead, or wires to the injector, when the buubles die down, or go away, thats the cylinder which is at fualt.
Check oil level too, the oil is for cooling also, check its no milky.
Also, is there hot air coming out of the heater when the engine is warm? if not there is air trapped in the system, bleed out at the top rad hose.
is the fan definatly turning, and at the right speed?
good luck hope this helps

I owned a jimny 1.3 since 1995. Seems has the same problem lately. My engine temp rose especially when I turn on the air-con and in a traffic jam. When moving the temp gauge always at little bit over half mark. I never have over heating problem when air-con is off and the temp gauge always at one third mark. I have asked radiator shop and the mechanic says, almost all suzuki jip has the same problem because they found out the radiator is too small and not sufficient to cool the engine. They asked me to find bigger radiator and the most suitable radiator is from Nissan Vannette. Its 2 inches wider from the stock and needs a little modification on the left holding frame (for right hand drive). I manage to find the nissan radiator at the 2nd hand shop and changed the radiator. I still use the stock fan and cover. My over heating problem now seems gone forever.
