SOURCE: my engine is overheating, and

With the engine cool open radiator cap. If the level is low you are losing coolant. Go for a 30/40 dollars, radiator compression test. Might be a bad radiator cap seal, water pump leak cylinder head gasket.
If the coolant level is in top, then there are many other reason.

SOURCE: all of my coolant leaked

once all the coolant leaks out your temp gage wont be accurate because there is no contact with coolant and the sensor that takes the temp reading. broken serpentine belt, weak belt tentioner, clogged cooling system

Sounds like your thermostat isn't opening and closing as it should.

I my experience it is a compression leak into the cooling system probably a crack between the valves or improper torquing of the heads one test to confirm is test the cooling system for hydrocarbon emissions you can do this with a gas analyzer or a block fluid test kit if you uses the fluid test follow the directions exactly or you could get a false reading

On a 2005 Pontiac grand Prix if you've chained water pump and thermostat and the reservoir to the coolant still bubbles but its not running hot what's the problem.


If you continue to get bubbles in the reservoir after all the air is purged out of the system, then likely you have a blown head gasket, and the bubbles are exhaust.

Changed thermostat in 2005 monte carlo but temp gauge still rises slightly higher than before and there is some bubbles in the coolant reservoir


You have a check light on,but I see

Bubbles-failed head gasket or intake gasket- maybe

Have to test for exhaust gases in the coolant

I changed the turbo now white smoke coming out of my exhaust


This seems to be a symptom of a blown head gasket.
White exhaust smoke is an indication of water / coolant in the exhaust. The car running sluggish and using lots of fuel can be caused by compression loss.

Look at the coolant level color and smell (with cold engine - don't open the high pressure reservoir with engine hot as hot coolant may spray you in the face). If you have a blown gasket, the coolant color may become brownish and it may smell bad or the level will get lower even if you have just refilled the cooling system.

What you can also check for is bubbles in the reservoir. With engine cold, remove the reservoir cap. Start the engine. Try to rev the engine (or have someone do it) and observe if there are bubbles in the reservoir tank. If you see lots of bubbles, you have a blown gasket.

to check if air in system, let cool down and remove radiator / coolant reservoir cap and systematically squeeze coolant hoses including heater hoses, you should see bubbles in reservoir as you squeeze hoses, continue until no more bubbles, then top up coolant to required level.

Coolant reservoir bubbling


Have it tested for a bad head gasket.
Why would you be using it at all

The thermostat went all the way to the red zone, telling me the car was extremely over heated. The heater was not blowing hot air, there is plenty of coolant and it wasn't hot, the oil wasn't hot, but...


It's possible that you have air in the system. In these cases, a hot air bubble can form near the temperature sensor, and the bubble can also prevent coolant flow to the heater. Recommend you park on an incline, open the radiator cap, if you have one, start the car and let it warm up. Open any blled ports you can find on the cooling system to let any air out. Fill the radiator to the top, if possible--do not fill the reservoir to the top if that is the only place you can add coolant.
Note, if air bubbles continue to come up in the radiator or reservoir after the car is hot and coolant is flowing, you may have a blown head gasket. Let me know if you have any questions.
