Loyale Overheating problem
Posted 22 July 2005 - 08:17 PM
Noisy lifters coming from cylinder # 4. The problem was recently corrected with the replacement of the oil pump, problem solved.
I however have an issue since the car was starting to overheat, problem I assumed was due to the oil pump going bad, I had my mechanics replace the oil pump and the the water pump ( with new OEM parts ) however the engine is overheating ( way more than it was with the old water pump ), I checked the rad and found that the rad sensor was not plugged so I plugged it in but no change.
The rad is not hot, the fan is not turning and there is no pressure in the top rad hose going to the engine, could this be due to a defective water pump or would it be a problem of another nature?

you need a new radiator
the cooling fins delaminate from the cooling tubes
no flushing - roding or magic in a can, will cure it
We have seen this problem many times in the past.
(but I am but a grasshopper here at times)
Please do not take my word only on this ...
There is a search engine on the title bar
type in "overheating" and judge for your self.
May you solve this mystery quickly as your head gaskets
going south are only an overheat away

You are welcome good luck
Hope it's a simple as this fix

replacement rads are available
