Are you sure you had installed the correct gasket? did you compare it with the old gasket that you took off? I suspect that you got the wrong gasket and blocked up the holes between cylinder head and engine block thats why the coolant are not circulating thus creating an excessive heat

Pajero overheating


It sounds like you had a blown head gasket and it was leaking into the oil or into the exhaust and being burned. if you look at the oil on the dip stick it may look milky. if the head gasket starts leaking internally then it can / will cause overheating

I have a mitsubishi Pajero 2.5tdi vehicle with 52,000km on the clock,for the past year it has continued to overheat resulting in new and second hand cylinder heads replacement,it has now happened again...


A vast problem, start off by checking the thermostat, replace it, do not try running without it. Next have the radiator and the engine block flushed out professionally. A head gasket as such will not cause overheating unless it has been incorrectly installed. (Was the radiator back flushed after the first occurence of overheating?)

Oil in overflow of radiator.


If you have coolant mixed in you oil you have blown a head gasket at the very least. You will have to pull the heads and replace the gasket.

Mazda bongo 2.5 turbo diesel 1996. over heating


no im a mechanic it sounds like that you have an air lock in the cooling system .i am familiar with ford freda and bongo and the design where the engine is is a bit far from the radiator ,so the problem with air locks magnifies.really the solution is just drain the water and refill it slowly while you are pressing and releasing,just repeat the action on the top radiator hose to get rid of any air trapping within the system,it's as simple as that really.you want it to have just water and no air as this will cause a blockage.

Over heating


Sounds like you blew a head gasket to me. There IS a test procedure that you can do to verify this:


1. remove all the spark plugs.

2. Apply about 90 lbs of constant shop air into each cylinder and watch for air bubbles in the radiator. Perform this on ALL the cylinders one at a time.
