Have you checked to see if the fan unit is working? I had this happen to me until i realized the last mechanic didn't put the fuse in the right place so the fan wasn't turning on. Solved my problem immediately.

SOURCE: Coolant filling up overflow bottle

You may need to ask AAA to put a radiator pressure tester on the resevoir bottle and pump it up to operating pressure(Pressure cap rating) and see if it over pressurises while it is running at operating temp,rev engine up and down and watch what the testers pressure readings do,it should move up and down in sync with the water pump.If the pressure keeps building i would have to believe that combustion chamber gases are over pressurising your cooling system.Also test the pressure cap is functioning within factory specs.

SOURCE: coolant blowing out of radiator into overflow bottle at start up.

Typically would not overheat until enough coolant was lost. Find out if they mag fluxed the heads, or had it done. A lot of shops rebuild without doing this step as it's expensive. If they got a rebuilt head, again they need to know if it was mag-fluxed.
It's harder to mag flux the block while in the vehicle and assembled.

Ok,I have a 2002Firebird 3.8 seriesII, V6 coolant/water is coming up from radiator with cap off.


When you change antifreeze an air pocket is created in engine behind thermostat. You must let it run until the thermostat opens. Until then, liquid will boil backfkowing through bottom of radiator.
As for milky look, blown headgasket would cause white foam that if left alone wouldclear up. Otherwise it could be an additive in the fluid such as rust preventative.

unfortunately these engines are known for this condition and for head gasket failure.with engine cold pressurize cooling system with spark plugs removed.look down into holes with flashlight after about ten minutes.....im betting youll see a puddle of coolant on piston...usually its cyl# 2 or 3.i cant think of any other possibility for system repeatedly airlocking other than a head gasket.good news they are probably one of the easier ones to replace.

The coolant level in the radiator goes low, and the reserve doesn't transfer to the radiator. The temp constantly gets high, after about 15 minutes of driving or idling. Just replaced the thermostat, and...


you may have a blown head gasket. Open the radiator cap and make sure the radiator is full. start the engine and run it until it's hot. Keep the radiator full. Once the engine is hot and the thermostat is open, all of the air should be bled out of the system. If air continues to bubble up in the radiator, you have a blown head gasket. If you have more questions, please let me know.

Hi, check you have heat coming out the heater in the car put it on hottest setting and see what happens if it comes out cold then the chances are the head gasket has gone and is pushing gasses into the coolant system causing an air lock and then over heating.

check the oil for signs of a white substance look on the oil level stick and also inside the oil filler cap if their is any signs of milky substance then this is proof head gasket has gone.

let me know what you find out ok

I have an oil leaking from under my valve cover. How easy is it to change the gasket. I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Diamante. V6 3500 24 valve engine


its an easy fix get a new gasket ready and remove old one. before you put in the new one clean both surfaces on cover and head and put a smear of silicone sealer on both sides of gasket and carefully put together and make sure sealent doesnt go into engine tighten all the bolts evenly working in opposites and leave to let sealer set this will cure any leaks

Why does the water boil in my car 2001 lincon we've changed the thermostat and put a new radiator cap on and put antifreese in it


Unfortunately, you could have a blown head gasket.
Check the coolant for oily residue.
Also, check the oil dipstick to see if the oil foams - which is an indication of water seeping from the water jacket into the cylinders.

Also, do a vacuum pressure test. You might have a carbon buildup, which is causing your car to overheat.

Is your oil changed regularly? Dirty oil causes overheating. Also, make sure the oil is up to the proper level.

Overheating problem


I would go with slowcalafl. It is either air, or a cracked head bad head gasket. Remove the radiator cap when cool. Start up the car and watch for bubble emerging from the coolant. If it continues to bubble, you have a bad head or head gasket. If not, look for improper timing as another possibility.
