Fix your overheating engine

To fix an overheating engine, you first need to find the cause of the overheating problem.  And it’s not always obvious. There’s no loss of coolant, and it runs fine until they need more power, e.g hook up the caravan, climb a steep range, or up the cruising speed a bit.

Very commonly, before customers speak to us, they have spent several thousand dollars, on thermostats, water pumps, fan hubs, big core radiators and hoses…and the vehicle still overheats. Before the problem develops into something more serious, discovering the cause of the overheating can be a real process of elimination…

At Cost Effective Maintenance our approach to finding the root cause is simple. You need to get everything clean, first. Sounds far too simple, but often that’s all you really need to do.

Find the cause of your overheating engine.

One area that often overlooked is the major role oil plays in the cooling of your engine! For example, if your oil gets dirty very quickly, it can be a pointer to your overheating problem. The black soot in your engine oil absorbs heat readily, but tends to retain it, rather than disperse it. This creates way too much heat and often leads to an overheated engine. Sludge can then build up, which insulates against heat transfer, and reduces the flow of cooling oil. This creates even more heat.

Carbon deposits form (unchecked by the dirty oil), and wherever it forms (e.g under the piston skirts), it also acts as insulation against heat dissipation.

Flushing Oil Concentrate

Flushing Oil Concentrate will safely remove the black, built up oil from your engine. As simple as completing an oil change.

Fixing an overheating engine

Thankfully, this problem can be easily corrected. Simply run the engine at a fast idle with clean oil, treated with Flushing Oil Concentrate (FOC) for 30-45 minutes, and bring the entire oil wetted side of the engine back to pristine cleanliness.

This simple, effective process removes carbon from around sticking piston rings, top lands & skirts. All sludge that constricts oil galleries, oil pumps and oil coolers is removed to allow the oil to do its important cooling job and stop your engine from overheating.

Radiator and cooling system flush to stop overheating

Engine overheating problems can also be the result of problems with the cooling system itself. Flushing out your radiator and cooling system is surprisingly easy and is a simple as a adding a bottle of RMI-25 into you radiator.

Flushing the radiator can achieve immediate results in stopping overheating

  • Unblocking radiators.
  • Freeing stuck thermostat’s.
  • Removing old glycol and built up mineral scale.
  • Stopping corrosion and electrolysis.
  • Clean the cooling system while you drive.

RMI25 Will flush your radiator and cooling system.

Simply add RMI25 to your vehicles radiator and all harmful blockages will be removed .

Just add RMI-25 cooling system treatment to your existing coolant. RMI-25 cleans, desludges and descales the entire cooling system…while you drive! It lubricates water pumps and better preserves hoses, seals and O-rings. It can easily cool overheating systems by 10 deg C or more!

Remember, water is a superior coolant to glycol, and RMI25  provides additional cooling benefits to glycol. Plus, it’s a lot cheaper. If you need antifreeze, you will require a small amount of glycol. However, for most Australians, RMI-25 and water is recommended. Importantly for the environment, it is non-toxic and biodegradable.

“Waterless Coolants” are usually based on glycol alone, without any water.  They offer a very high boiling point, but are less efficient at cooling than water, and to that end are more a “band-aid” approach.

Overheating engines and high temperature situations

For high ambient temperatures, or high engine load applications, AW10 Antiwear is also recommended to reduce friction, wear and heat build-up at highly loaded parts. AW10 is also great for reducing operating temperature in transmissions, differentials, hydraulics, etc.

 

AW10 Antiwear  provides excellent friction and heat reduction.

Simply add AW10 Antiewear to your engine, diffs and transmission to reduce friction extend vehicle life

Testimonials

Datsun SD25 Diesel.
For 4 years, Allan Dickson had been unable to solve an overheating problem. Despite flushing the cooling system, and fitting a larger radiator, it would always boil up the Toowoomba Range. After using FOC, it gets up the range at 70 kph (instead of 40-50 kph) without overheating. One of the functions of oil is to cool, and if flow is restricted, overheating results

 

Landcruiser 1HZ Diesel

I ran the flush through the old girl with 9 litres of clean oil. Well over 11 litres of black gunk came out. I was totally blown away by the sludge in the bottom of the Drain Pan.

Nissan 4.2TD Patrol
 (Peter Simms, HUMPTYDOO NT).  Originally never ran hot, but in recent years it had become a problem. Peter had spent thousands of $$$ replacing radiators, clutch fan hubs, thermostats, chemical cleaning, etc, etc…all to no benefit, as nothing solved his overheating. In fact over the last 3 years, it just got worse & worse. The temp gauge would sit 3-4mm above the ½ way mark. Every time it ran hot, the air conditioner would cut out. After doing a web search, and finding reports of solving this problem, Peter finally tried the Flushing Oil Concentrate & Cleanpower pack. The overheating problem was immediately solved. Now at 110kph uphill, towing the quad bike trailer, and the temp stays cool. Peter also reports that after his first flush, the new oil was amber clean on the dipstick. Normally it went black straight away.

Nissan Patrol 2.8L TD
I used your Flushing Oil Concentrate, and couldn’t believe the sludge that came out!! The motor is now running a lot smoother and staying much cooler under heavy loads, even towing my 2 tonne horse float. (Les White, Heartland Real Estate GIN GIN)

Have CRD fuel enhancer since purchase of my new car. I have got flush as well... but have not used yet. Have been hearing a lot about the products on facebook forums and i know why and hence started using them since day 1 of my new car.Also, if you raise any questions and help, the guys help you quickly and cannot be more happier.read more

I have been using CRD and FTC during refuel on my 200 series V8 turbo diesel... for last 45k. engine and turbo definately feels alot smoother. I highly suggest getting bulk to save the cost. I bought 5L each. Also, using flushing oil additive. First time when I used it. I think extra 1-1.5L came out. all the sludge build up broken down. oil looks cleaner for longer. nothing but 5 star products and customer service is 2nd to none.read more
