2005 Hyundai Trajet Repair Question
Hyundai Trajet Gas Problem
While driving with Aircon, the temperature is ok. However after driving a distance when the car stops the temperature moves up. I then turnoff the Aircon and the temperature comes down. However sometimes it does not. Last suggestion was to change the Aircon fan. Even after replacing the fan I am still having the same problem. Any help pls.
bad move with thermostat. it must be there and working. did you have a leak down test done to be sure a head gasket was not damaged from overheating??

Not had to fill up at all.
depends on how badly the gasket is leaking into the cylinders
Yes, I guess it depends on the extent of damage,if any.
Does changing the gasket amount to a top overhaul?
pretty much. the head will have to plained and checked for cracks. ake sure you use new head bolts.
have a leak down test done first to confirm the gasket has failed
Do you mean a compression test?
no, a leak down test. they inject air in to one cylinder at a time and watch for pressure loss and coolant movement in the radiator.
Appreciate your kind assistance!
