    Check the oil for water, if water is in the oil it will look foamy, have the cooling system pressure tested.

If you have a little white smoke out of your exhaust, it might be a head gasket.

White smoke coming from exhaust car running fine no overheating where is white smoke coming from and or there a quick fix


White smokee is normally a sign of coolant getting into a combustion chamber, due to a head gasket, leaking intake, or a crack in either. Check your coolant level! Running it with this problem will destroy your engine. I would get it pressure tested.

My 2002 Chevy Malibu is overheating. I found that


If your car is equipped with a 3.1 or a 3.4 litre V6 and you have preformed all of the above listed work then I would have to say its the intake manifold gaskets. They commonly blow on these motors. Just a design flaw, nothing but replacing them when they leak can fix this. Also run a coolant pressure test on the system to check for minor things like a leak that you cant see from visual inspection. Hope this helps.

Temperature control


The radiator cap is at the radiator where you refill the radiator with coolant. Unless it is leaking and you hear a hiss. It may not have anything wrong.Neither will the water pump.If the water pump is bad. It has a small hole that will make it start leaking .Check the engine for leaks at the intake or the water pump.You will know where it is leaking. When the thermostat was removed and hopefully replaced , did you bleed the system ? The system has to be bled to remove air pockets. Or the engine will overheat again. Also check that the radiator fan or fans is turning on . If not you may need to replace the temperature control sensor.(TPS)

Sounds like you may need a new Thermostat.

Get a Haynes or Chilterns manual and a new Thermostat for the carfrom a car parts place like Autozone. Its normally a simple opperation to change it.
