I can't tell for certain from your description, however, it sounds like you have lost or have a hole in a freeze plug. They are a round piece of metal with a raised lip which are supposed to pop out if the coolant freezes to prevent block cracks. Overheating may havepushed one out or ruptured a rusting spot.

Cannot diagnose or run temp. Sealer for what i believe is head blown because car wont start it cranks but sputters and kills battery?


Sounds like head gasket again, but may be more serious this time. Overheating is not something to take lightly.

Pull plugs. crank. Water come out of cylinders? Head gasket. Possible cracked block or head this time, too. I'd be looking at a replacement engine.

Hi.my a4's overheating and seemingly no oil pressure.


well you may have put the gasket back on wrong blocking the oil hole which supplies the oil to the head, this would cause the low oil pressure and the oil light coming on.
If the gasket is on the wrong way it may be causing the overheating problem as well by blocking or partially blocking the water holes in the head that allow the water to get to the head and cool it down.
these are the only things I can think of apart from maybe a cracked block caused by the overheating but that would not explain the lack of oil to the rockers
Hope this helps

My car keeps overheating..I changed the thermostat but the gauge is still all the way to hot..could it be the water pump?


Probly not. Unless the pump is run by it's own belt which broke. Usually , a pump is good till it starts leaking all over the place.
Please explain overheating problem more. Is it while you are driving , or when you are stoped in trafic. Does it heat up and overheat very quickly after you start the car. Is it really overheating , or is your guage just showing overheat.

Overheating and bubbling out of my overflow.How


Might be the heater matrix for the car heating system that is leaking in which case your carpets will be wet underneath

If the matrix is ok then I would hazard a guess that the block has cracked and gases are being forced into the cooling jacket around the block.

Fill the radiator leave the cap off, run the car stationary , watch the water , if there are lots of bubbles coming up from the radiator your head , block or gasket needs attention

A/C is not draining condensate. Ck the drain under the blower housing on passenger side. Squeeze like a coin purse to open it. It's like a rubber duckbill.

Coolent is leaking from overflow and overheating


I will agree with your uncle and say that you should check the water pump. Start the vehicle and look at the water pump. Most water pumps have a "weep hole". If there is coolant coming out of this hole the water pump is not working properly. If not, and if the temperature has been running normally, you may have fixed the problem when you replaced the cap, if the water pump is good and the temp has been running high, then check the thermostat. Hope this helps and good luck.
