I am working on Kimmy's zukie thingie which has some sort of vitara Fuelinfected engine in it.

Long story short, it's overheating.

Changed the thermostat, nothing.

Checked the W/P.....ok

Pulled the rad and flushed it....seems ok but impossible to know for sure.

Are there any secret air bleeds on this engine ?


I'll post some pictures of it.

Thanks.

I had an airlock in mine once after replacing a line and refilling from the rad cap. Pouring excess rad fluid into the overflow resevoir seemed to solve the issue for some reason.

clogged t water jackets, poor airflow through rad, slipping belt or fan clutch, defective rad cap, electric cooling fan not working good?

The aftermarket electric fan works fine.

Belt was tight on w/p.

No heat through the heater core, even when the system is at operating temperature...


The heater control valve works.


Oh dave.........ahhhh nevermind.

Take the rad in for a flow test,I had one that you could run a garden hose thru
but when i had it tested it was only 30%:dontknow:

Not having hot water in the heater core at temp seems to be a problem,try bypassing heater core and see if that affects running temp:dontknow:

Nice motor setup in the sami[36]

x2 take the rad in, you normally can get a flow check done for free
