Hi Mr.Shiva,

I have purchased a second hand Matiz 2000 model, and I sparingly use the same, each time I drive the car for about 30 to 40 kms. engine dries up with coolant and suddenly it stops, again a burning type smell comes from engine, i recently serviced the car, but still the problem is not solved fully. I drive the car very rarely mostly on weekends, it is because of stop gap driving or any other problem? please help? it is with ac, but I drive without switching on AC most times.

The problem is most likely due to defective thermostat in the radiator header which allows the coolant to drain out.Please get it checked/tested before it causes seizure of engine at the most embarassing moment when you are in a traffic jam.

The Radiator assy and connections needs to be checked thoroughly for any leakage .Please get it checked with service center asap.

Check for coolant leaks from radiator, hoses, coolant reservoir. Check that the radiator cap's rubber seal is in good condition, cap's pressure rating should be correct. Check thermostat operation, cooling fan operation.

Simply a radiator problem

As the vehicle is old you also should check the Fan motor. If the fan does not work properly then the engine would not get proper cooling making the coolant dry. Whatever it is please check the Radiator, Fan, Thermostat, Hose, fuse which supports the fan motor
