Question about 1991 Mitsubishi Eclipse
Do compression test and tk test the tk test is actually kinda cool it passes the gasses from ur colling system through a liquid that changes colors if there is any sign of combustion chamber gases in it but the compression test is much cheaper and easier but if you have faulty valve seats or you piston rings leak it could give you a misleading result and does it matter if your on the highway or in the city over heating in city indicates fan due to low speeds and poor cooling in the radiator but if it overheats no matter what it could be the head gasket or the water pump also check to see if you are lossing fluid like a drip or something or even if you cant see a drip your heater core could be leaking inside the car so fill it up and minitor ur fluid levels first to determine if you have a leak

Ok check your water pump and check to see if ur head gasket is blown

You should have what is known as a TK head test done.Very effective in isolating wether you have combustion chamber gases escaping into the cooling system.Take all the spark plugs out and check to see if there is any sign of water on them.Is the fan working correctly?
