You vehicle blows head gasket very easy,to say it overheated and radiator is solid then you have combustion entering the cooling system. when the engine has cooled down and you can open the radiator cap smell the coolant does it smell like fuel or exhaust? If it does you definately have a head gasket
Your problem is a blown head gasket .You will need to have the gasket replaced . It would also pay to get the head crack tested and if it is ok get it machined or skimmed as it could be warped. Consider replacing the waterpump and timing belt along with tensioner and idler.Make sure the thermostat is replaced also.Get the radiator cleaned as well. Hope this helps
maybe the sensor that turns on the fans might of gone bad . . and turning on the ac when engine is gettin hot is not going to help instead turn on the heater to reduce the heat , also overheating causes hoses and gaskets to get soft and get destroyed
It is very likely the overheating has blown the cylinder head gasket and coolant is getting into cylinders or compression is leaking from cylinder to cylinder or both, you will need to remove the cylinder head and have it checked for warp-age and shaved flat by a machine shop if ness, and replace heat gasket.
Before getting too upset about this, try changing the temperature sender. Can't tell you where it is but it is usually on or near the thermostat housing but some engines have it on the intake manifold or rear of cyl head.
