I recently bought a 2003 Hyundai tiburon. It keeps overheating after running for about 5 minutes.
I took it to my local Hyundai dealership and they concluded the reason was bc the radiator was leaking and the fans weren’t turning on. Long story short I ran my own wiring and what not so I can turn on the fans with a switch.Regardless, that doesn’t work. It’s still overheating.
The guy I bought the car from said the water pump needed to be replaced and I couldn’t do it myself. So I got the mechanics to do it and still it over heats. Then I remembered that the radiator was leaking badly so I also replaced that myself and it still continues to overheat. Just today I thought of replacing the thermometer thing in it but that didn’t help either.
I’m truly lost ah what to do now because I really need a running car, this one does blow hot air out the vents. The radiator blows cold to warmish air while the engine overheats. I can’t sell the car bc I tried and no one seemed interested with this car. If you have any ideas for help please let me know.
