    Is there a reason you don't believe them? No mention of possibly a bad radiator?

Head gaskets don't cause overheating Usually they are a result of overheating. If the headgasket is bad one wil get leaking into the cylinders of coolant,which wil show up as milky oil.Like some one else stated ; have the radiator rodded out,(cleaned and fluashed).

2001 olds silhouette engine overheats


Time for Intake Gaskets and possibly head gaskets, very common problem with these, the intake gaskets go bad and the coolant actually burns in the cylinder and of course the cylinder pumps air into the coolant system because of intake gaskets being bad. :-(

My 2003 Ford focus blew a head gasket a while back. I got fixed that, changed out the water pump, thermostate, water resevoir, and a few hoses. It started to overheat again, but the thermostate wasn&#


If you got a blown head gasket, water is getting mixed with your oil, pretty much ruining it, and your oil's viscosity will be affected, causing oil pressure to drop and your light turns on.

How do you know your car is overheating if it's not showing in your gauge?

When replacing blown gaskets there are a few things that is best to do, like sandblasting the heads, clean, scrape block and use proper torque an sequence, only removing old gasket and placing new ones won't fix the issue, those gaskets go through extreme conditions, expansion, temp changes, etc, they need to be put mindfully. I mention this because it seems you changed a lot and ended up with the original issue...

If your gasket is blown you need to fix that asap, then identify where is your coolant leak/blockage that causes alleged overheating, doing a coolant flush might help. Good luck.

My car keeps over heating and i dont have heat


The first thing is to check the coolant level, make sure engine is cold beefore removing the radiator cap, then start car with cap off and add as much as needed, this problem is not a bad thermostant, a bad thermostant would overhaet but would give heat, even if it was stuck open the heat would take while to get hot but then car wouldnt overheat, this problem one one of these problems, . low coolant or a bad waterpump, i have seen a few like this and the waterpump propeller rots away and coolant cant circulate, the last thought would be a bad head gasket but you would get heat when driving, so if coolant isnt low then waterpump is bad. hope this is helpful.

My 98 ford contour keeps overheating i just replaced the radiator and the water pump. And there is no water in the oil. The fans work but it still overheats . What else could be causing it to overheat?


I can't believe anyone would replace the waterpump without also replacing the thermostat. Once overheated, a thermostat is no good anymore. It must be replaced.

But that is not the only possibility. You could have a bad head gasket, without having oil in the water. Only a pressure check can tell. You could also have a collapsing lower hose, as water pump suction causes it to pinch off. You could also have an air bubble from not bleeding it properly when refilling. You could also have a loose waterpump belt. You could have put in the wrong waterpump, as the type for normal V-belts runs the opposite direction of the type for serpentine belts.
There are many more, but that is all I could immediately think of.

1997 Cadillac Deville Overheating


Yes it can be the head gasket,one way to tell,is make sure the engine is cold,like in the morning.Take the rad.cap off,add water until full.Turn over the engine and let run,while looking at the opening(where the cap goes).Is the water coming out like really fast,maybe as much as a fountain?If so,then it is a head,or head gasket.If you would like to bleed system of air I can tell you how.If there is air in the cooling system,it will run hot.With it cold,or cool,not hot or real warm,fill the reservoir with water up to 3/4 full,over the fill mark.Fill the radiator full,and replace radiator cap,and reservoir cap.Make sure the hose from the reservoir to the radiator is in good shape,no holes or crimped anywhere.start the engine with the ac off.At this point the cooling fans should not be on.There not supposed to be on unless you straight wired them.Before the fans come on by themselves,or the vehicle runs hot,and right before not to soon,cut the car off.Go in the house and get on computer for about 30 to 40 minutes,and go back out side and check the water level in the reservoir.Is it down?if so add more water and repeat process until engine runs at normal temp.The fans should come on,and go off on there own,with the ac off.Let me know the out come.
