Overheated now won t start


Do a compression test or cylinder leakage test to check if the head gasket is blown. Looks like it blew on the water side. Or it could be that it overheated so badly that it could have collapsed the rings.. But if its not turning over means water got into the cylinders and seized up the piston. Remove the plugs and have a looks with bore scope for water ingress

I over heated,the serpentine belt snapped. Opened the hood to find steam rapidly coming out of both the antifreeze and out of the engine right by the head gasket. It wasn't smoke not blue or black jus


Perform a compression test on your cylinders. One unfortunate result of overheating is the blown head gasket. Without compression your motor will not run. Tester are not super expensive or some stores will lend tools.

Overheating


Assuming the radiator fan works correctly, my guess would be a leaking head gasket.

Hello, This is a tough problem to find when there are no Diagnostics. I suspect the problem is due to a term called "Heat Sink"

What this term means is that the engine compartment is getting hotter when the engine is just shut off, than when it is running. When the Tow truck moved your car, wind passed by while the Tow truck moved your vehicle. This helped cool it off regardless of when the car was towed.

A lot of times the heat shields on the Catalytic converters are rusted off. In a pursuit vehicle, they could have been knocked off. This means someone needs to look under your car to see what is missing.

The electric components like the Ignition module, coil, Relays, and fuel lines can be overheating.

Try opening your hood when you park your car at home and then go out shortly afterwards and try starting the car. If it helps, you need to find the component that is overheating and replace any missing heat shields.

I hope my solution is very helpful. You can also get FREE scans at Autozne, Advance, and Oreillys autoparts when you get a Code light.

you could have a blown head gasket turning the water to steam as you drive,, feel inside the exhaust pipe to see if there is antifreeze residue there , the heater won't work without fluid in it to be heated and blown out into the vehicle. To check the head gasket have a compression check done on the car, any one or two cylinders lower than the rest means its shot, Hopefully its not a warped head
