How Much Would It Cost to Fix a Busted in (but Not Broken) Car Radiator?

it would be cheaper in most chases to buy a new one

1. why would my car radiator boil and blow cap off?

The most common cause of this is the thermostat isnt opening to allow coolant to circulate so it only has one way to go,out!

2. Can we use a car radiator coolant in a Yamaha R15 V1?

No you cannot use car radiator coolant in yamaha R15 V1. Because each coolant have different characteristics to manage the heat balance of the engine. Diesel engines generate more heat comparing to gasoline engines. If we use diesel engine coolants to a light power gasoline car engine the coolant viscosity do not allows to reach its transfer point so it not absorb the heat. So it be better of you go by recommended coolant grade by the manufacturer but you choose the better brand on that by yourself.Can we use a car radiator coolant in a Yamaha R15 V1?.

3. cheap way to fix a car radiator with a leak?

J B weld

4. How do I repair a 2 inch crack on top of my car radiator ('90 Honda)?

Solder is the only way to go. I would not trust a glue or adhesive, except as a temporary fix in an emergency, and welding will blow a hole clean through the radiator - too much heat! Use a butane torch or acetylene (without oxygen) - the radiator will take the heat away from the area faster than a soldering iron can put the heat it. Get a professional to do it if you can afford it - if you mess up, it may become unrepairable, and new radiators are not cheap

5. How to open car radiator cap? Pressing down and twisting counter clock wise doesn't work.?

Are you doing this when the car is hot? When hot the system is pressurized and very hard to open. Wait till the car cools and it will be easier, and safer, to open the cap

6. What should I do when I use normal water instead of coolant in a car radiator?

I'm very surprised, 7 answers and only one of them mentioned what I believe to be most applicable in the OP's situation.Like Daniel Bumiller . said, since you said coolant instead of antifreeze, you are probably in a warmer region. But he failed to mention what Richard Widman mentioned which is that coolant also raises the boiling point of water. So here's a complete answer:Freezing point - If you live in a freezing climate, water will freeze in your engine block, coolant reservoir, coolant passages and radiator.nna. More than likely this will cause your expansion plugs (also known as freeze plugs) to pop out, which can be an expensive repair. The vehicle cannot be driven to the mechanic, it would have to be towed. nnb. Also, your water pump will be seized because of the ice, and therefore whatever is driving your water pump (whether it is your timing belt, external fan belt, serpentine belt, or drive gear) will slip or break.nnc. there might be other damage associated with this scenario, but I live in a tropical country. I have never had the experience or felt the need to study these effects. Boiling Point - Regardless of what climate you live in, a vehicle's operating temperature is usually higher than the boiling point of water. If the fluid in your cooling system starts boiling while you are operating the vehicle, several things can happen.nna. air is introduced into the system. This can cause unreliable performance of the temperature gauge, inefficient cooling by the radiator, water pump damage, and possible overheating of the engine. nnb. boiling will also cause the water to evaporate, and your engine will overheat once sufficient water has been lost.Rust inhibition - the coolant is only part of the rust prevention in an engine, but important nonetheless. Improper grounding of the engine will cause electrolysis to occur, which will eat at your radiator core like acid thru steel. Good quality coolant also has the ability to absorb a certain amount of electrolysis. Along with the presence of rust inhibitors, it is imperative to use it for rust prevention.So there you have it, a combination of points gathered from different answers, broken down with explanations for each one. I hope you learned something new from this.Cheers!What should I do when I use normal water instead of coolant in a car radiator?

Car Radiator Hose Full of Pressure PLEASE HELP?
i am quite a radiator expert! The heater on your automobile is fed from the radiator below the bonnet (or hood in case you are American).

The transmission oil Collier is basically the same as it cools the trans oil so it stays thick enough to keep the parts from wearing and gets rid of the heat from friction2. Where can I buy a car radiator?ebay auto zone advance auto or junkyard3. my car radiator fan stays on after the ignition switch is off?10 seconds? Ca not hurt. Assists in the cooling process4. How long should the antifreeze in a car radiator last?you have a leak for sure it does not evaporate that fast, it would take months.. get a flashlight and run motor warm and check it out all over. if it is a new car or whatever read your manual for what to use it may be dexcool, 50/50, or reg antifreeze. it will tell you usually on the shock panel in the engine compartment or on the cap. and in the manual as well. dexcool is good for 100k-150k miles if use the right make product. stay cool!5. Car radiator Fan works even its cool?Check the radiator fan switch and fan relay6. Can I add a water sprinkler infront of the car radiator to cool down the coolant temperature when I'm making a long climb up the hill?Well, you could.But then you'd have to carry along a reservoir of water somewhere in your car along with the plumbing and electrically driven water pump to make it work.And that all adds weight ...8.34 pounds to be exact ...for each gallon of water you carry. So 10 gallons of water would add about 83lbs of dead weight plus the added plumbing, wiring and water pump ...so you're easily looking at well over 100lbs to carry around with you. All the time. Whether your going up hills or not. The better way?Get your cooling system in order.Like when was the last time you had the cooling system in your car flushed and refilled with new coolant ...if you even know what I'm talking about? If you've neglected the cooling system then the radiator is probably clogged with all manner of crud and mung ...in which case it's time for a new radiator ...as well as an effctive flush of the entire cooling system of the engine. If your car has electric radiator fans then make sure they both work. Typically one fan runs based on coolant temperature and the other comes on when the AC is turned on and, possibly, when the coolant exceeds a certain temperature. If your cooling system is up to snuff then your engine should not be overheating when you run up long grades. And, it will only get worse.Bring the car in and have the cooling system evaluated; by your own question you know it's not working right ...so don't be an osterich and simply stick your head in the ground 'cause that won't make it go away or fix the ever worsening problem.
