Several possibilities, including blockage in coolant tubes of radiator, damaged or slipping impeller on water pump, blockage of air flow through radiator, inoperative radiator fan(s), damaged head or head gasket...
Does the radiator fan come on? If not, problem could be bad temp sensor or fan motor or wiring.
if its the 6 pot in line engine then its a cast head and the torque will be around 75lbs ,if its pushing water then iam afraid the head will need further examination like its warped or the water ports have opened up due to corrosion where its had no antifreeze .Or you have damaged the gasket putting the head on and open up to it as we have all done even the best of mechanics
Buy a gasket kit for the upper end. Remove the valve cover intake and exhaust manifolds. Remove the head bolts. Remove head and clean up block from old gasket material. Take the head to a machinist and make sure that it is not warped. If it is warped either replace the head with a new one or have it machined true. Install new gasket and get torque specs with new head bolts and follow torque sequence using the correct torque specs. Clean exhaust, intake and valve cover of old gaskets. install new gaskets and torque according to specifications.
try aviation gasket maker / messy but stops leaks .make sure you have all surfaces clean no debris stuck on them and the right thermostat that fits and the proper gaskets or o ring and a little avaition gasket glue should cure the problem . leaks require patience :) gl
1 torque all bolts to 22 ft/lbs
2 torque all bolts to 45 ft/lbs
3 recheck all bolts to 45 ft/lbs
4 torque bolts 1 thru 10 to 110 ft/lbs
bolt 11 to 100 ft/lbs
bolts 12 thru 14 to 110 ft/lbs
bolt #1 is the fourth bolt from the front on the passenger side....#2 is the fourth bolt on the drivers side then you continue in a clockwise order
your best bet would be to go to a local parts store and purchase a Haynes manual for your specific vehicle, this will give you step by step instructions as well as all the required torque specs. The Haynes manuals are around $ 25.00 canadian. hope this helps you.
