SOURCE: 2003 saab 9-5 replaced head gasket because of overheat

disconnect computer and drive it ,if it drives ok then nothing wrong with it,after test drive put your hand held plug in gizmo under wheels and drive over it for what use it is.Skimmed head and new head bolts ?you must have more money than sense didnt you check it with a straight edge first??then clean it with a flat bed sander.head bolts ?? more expense .only expense should have been head gasket and antifreeze with a tube of instant gasket.Have you put all the little vac pipes back on that open the flaps on the air con and left the one off on the valve between the inlet and exhaust manifolds.Also did you remove and grind in the valves ??

We have 2000 seabring it has a overheating problem and after turn off will slowly leak all water out over a day or day and half theres no water in the oil any suggestion ?

have a pressure test done on the cooling system to check for leaks
If the radiator cap is on the plastic reservoir ( ford) , the reservoir has a habit of cracking underneath and under pressure will open and let the water out
have a compression test done to confirm the integrity of the head and head gasket
check that the cooling fan is operational ( electronic control) or replace the viscous fan hub if on the water pump shaft

Chevy lumina overheat

engines overheat with no thermostats. Very simply put the water circulation is too fast for the heat to transfer to the air. Water pumps fail from bad bearings and pump seal but for no other reason. So back to basics Refit with a new thermostat put in properly. Have a flow test done on the radiator for blocked cores. have a coolant system pressure test done for leaks and cap failure.. have a compression test done to check for head gasket or cracks.. Check for correct ignition timing and air/ fuel ratio mixture. Run fault codes . when refilling with coolant ensure that all air locks are removed

I have a 1993 nissan sentra xe. It's a 1.6 liter, 4 cylinder engine. We have changed the thermastat, the water pump twice, and replaced a bad hose. But my car still overheats super fast.I'm told the...

This will most probably be caused by a partially blocked radiator . Remove your radiator and take it to a radiator specialists to have it flow tested .

The only way to clean and check a radiator for flow ability is to remove one of the tanks and have it manually cleaned and tested .

I have a 1999 ford courier 4x4 turbo diesel which has been overheating, should there be compression in the radiator?

No compression gasses or pressure from the engine running should be present in the radiator. . Remove rad. cap and start the engine, if it burps out coolant right away, this is a good indication of a blown head gasket or a cracked head.

1990 Subaru Liberty Overheats


I had the same problem with my 1993 Liberty LX. Remove the thermostat (located inside bottom radiator hose engine connection - take the connection off and thermostat is inside). Reassemble (minus thermostat), reconnect bottom hose. Slowly (very, very slowly) refill the radiator and remove the bleed plug ( located beside the top hose connection to the radiator - a black square plug with a phillips head cross in the middle). When the radiator is full and clear water (no air bubbles) is coming out of the bleed point, replace the bleed plug and then the radiator cap.

Run the engine for five minutes (approx) or until normal engine temperature is reached. Allow the engine to cool down and recheck the water level - fill if necessary ensuring that the bleed plug is open and clear water is coming out of that point. Replace Bleed plug and then radiator cap. Run engine for five minutes (approx) and then test dive. If the engine overheats keep filling the radiator until there are no air bubbles coming from out of the bleed point.

This fixed my overheating problem. Good luck and safe motoring.
