    changing the radiator fluid helps only for a few weeks and the smell of a over heating radiator is back. so replacing the head gasket is the fix? what amount of money am I looking at if I get someone to fix this? is it better to fix this myself?

SOURCE: my 1995 dakota is overheating, replaced water pump, thermostat, fan. What to do????

if the fan is working properly, the only thing left to check is the radiator...

i may be clogged or damaged so the water can't travel in it properly...

Have you checked the fan? A bad fan either electric or manual with clutch will cause a heating problem.

New water pump' thermostat,purge line. not heads or gaskets and still running hot


You say "Water pump thermostat" do you mean Thermostat or water pump? If you replaced the thermostat and still have an overheating problem then look at the water pump itself as the problem if that is replaced and you still have the problem then you have another problem in the engine or a clogged radiator core. You may have a lubrication problem in the motor, if the oil pump went out or your low on oil then the engine may be overheating from lack of lubrication. Another thing that will cause overheating is if the Fan is Electric and not activating or if the radiator fan is mechanical the clutch is not allowing the fan to rotate free when you are driving.

1995 328i Over heating


If the water pump was bad you should hear it or if the bearings were bad, then the serpentine belt would likely fall off. run the car until hot and open the cap for the radiator. If there is pressure then the pump is working. And running without a thermostat just keeps a constant flow iwth no engine temperature regulation. I would put a thermostat in and see how the heater works after that.
