Pressure build up and very hot

Hi all. i have a 92 hilux surf *** import.she gave heating problems so i got a new head from toyota. also new gasket,waterpump,timing belt kit. all toyota genuine parts.i was told that the veins in the radiator could have caused the problem so i got that done aswell. when i got it back it was runnin bad, spluttering and smokey. you would only have drove a mile or so and it would be up to half way on the temp gauge. it told the mechanics about it and they said that maybe the rad cap was faulty due to age so i changed it for a new toyota one. still no better.pressure builds up on top rad pipe. would greatly appreciate any help you culd offer me. gerry

Take it back to the dealership and tell them they did not correct the concern you had. Try to be as nice as possible :). They should honor their work since they gave it back to saying it was fixed. If you have to talk to the service manager and make a scene in his dealership...that's never good to have pissed off customer running around your shop. If you still don't get satisfactory results contact BAR. If the dealership wronged you they will find out and possibly get your money back.

radiator could be blocked there is a drain tap on the bottom undo and flush out when cold or another problem could be in the top of the water pump there is a thermostat which sometimes rusts closed and restricts water flow intern creates over heating and high pressure which then makes the radiator build pressure and drop the water through the over flow hose you can run the car with no thermostat but it will run cold most of the time meaning no heater or very little heat
