I recently had oan intermitant heater problem then my 02 mazda 626 began t run hot. I flushed radiator which looked like brown mud, flushed heater core and refilled with new antifreeze. The car ran great for two days. then the engine started overheating into hotzone right at the line. I had already replaced the thermostat.I figured it was the coolant temp sensor and last night I was going to replace it. I first drained some of the anti freeze out of the radiator and couldn't believe I have oil mixed with the anti freeze. any suggestion as what caused this would be appreciated. Is it possible I blew a head gasket. I hSD mechanic FRIEND TELL ME THAT I HAD A BAD RADIATOR. How ever the oil cooler line doesn't enter into the radiator. Any thoughts on what caused this or what the problem could be would be greatly appreciated.
Hey guys, my coolant reservoir cracked awhile back and i replaced it a few months ago, but it cracked again. So for a temporary fix i bypassed it and it worked, but i know i need to get a new reservoir, but i dont want to spend more money on one if it will crack again. im putting in a new radiator this weekend (because i hit a rock while mudding). but why would my reservoir crack like that, would it be because there is too much pressure? another option ive been thinking about is getting an aftermarket one or building one. but since the reservoir is pressurized ill need a pressure cap so it doesnt blow, and what is the other pressure cap for (the one that says not to remove)? and if i did buy one, what one should i get? and if i were to build one, what metal should i use, and how would i regulate the pressure? this is on a 2002 626 es at
