My Alero is overheating, and pushing the coolant out the surg tank, my brother said water pump, changed. then said thermostat, changed. then said radiator clogged, flushed. still doing the same thing?

Do fans come on , if not it is the $8 dollar temp sensor or the fan fuse or the fan motor.
If you have heat from the heater and if radiator gets hot then it is neither the raditor or the water pump nor the thermostat as neither heater or radiator would get hot
because no water would be moving in the system.

My kia sephia 1999 get heated when it runs for long distance, i replaced the head gasket, a new radiator cap and cleaned the radiator as well. still it get heated. how do i find my water cooling fans work...

Did you change the oil and oil filter.The oil might not be circulating well in the engine if water got into the oil after the head gasket failed.You might have to remove the botton engine oil pan and check the oil pump as it might be covered with white emulsified oil.If the oil does not circulate it can cause the engine to heat up.Did you remove any trapped air in the water?There should be a bleed valve.Make sure you turn the cab heater to the hot when removing any air fro the cooling system.Check for airlock.

Heaters were not heating up machanic replaced water pump + thermastate and timing belt as radiator wasnt heating up now the water is boiling nut has not oil in it the oil level light is flashing but has no...

I don't understand why the timing belt was replaced for a heater problem. Is the car running rough or missing badly? Have you actually checked the oil or just relying on the oil level light. Check the oil and look for signs of water in the oil. If the oil doesn't show signs of water, refill the radiator with antifreeze and bring the oil level up to the full mark. Run the engine until it gets hot. Turn the engine off and let it cool enough so that you can remove the radiator cap. If the radiator is empty again, there must be leak somewhere. If you can't find a leak then it may be going inside the engine. If that is the case then the engine should be running very rough. Let me know what you find.

My 2003 grand am overheated suddenly, died, made an unusual sound, and will not restart or hold coolant. The motor turns over just wont fire. could it have jumped time?

It could have but that would not explain why it's not holding radiator fluid. If you don't see the Radiator fluid on teh ground, check your engine oil. If the water is in there your going to be rebuilding the engine. If you can not access the timing chain/belt by removing a cover and have a coil pack you can remove a valve cover and watch the valves while cranking the motor to see if you have a broken timing chain/belt. If you do the valves will not go up and down when the engine cranks. Remove all of the spark plugs and cranks the motor for about 30 seconds then check the engine area for water discharge. If there is water in any cylinder you cracked your block, blew a head gasket, or cracked the head on the vehicle. I recommend you get the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle to continue troubleshooting or for doing any of these repairs..

Blowing oil and smoke out of valve cover. radiato is boiling over

There are several things that can be causing the problems. Blowing smoke and oil out of the valve cover is usually a sign that the engine rings are worn out and/or the PVC valve is not working correctly to remove the gases from the engine case. The radiator boiling over can be from several causes. A bad radiator cap can cause the engine to boil over. Lack of antifreeze can also do the same thing since the later model smog engines run at a higher temperature and use higher pressure radiator caps. A cracked head can also cause the radiator and engine to overheat. This can be checked at a local parts store with a radiator checker that will show if there is exaust gases in the radiator when the engine is running. Worse case senerio is you blew a head gasket out and your oil will look like bubbly milky creamy in color from the water that has gotten into and mixed with the oil from the engine. You are going to have to do some trouble shooting on this one to find the answers. Good Luck, RAC

Water in oil

Hello it,s quite possible that water is getting in around the rubber grommet that holds the pvc on the valve cover ,also if you wash or hose down/degrease your engine their is always a chance of water getting in to an area like that ,Engines especially 4 cyl get wickedly hot and hoses and anything rubber gets brittle over time and starts to crack and shrink exposing areas that would allow water to get in under presure ,also make shure all the rubber seals around the hood area are in good condition ,not allowing water from rainto get in ,A cracked block will always let you know with the sign of antifreeze in the oil ,Well i wish you the best and hope i was able to give you a few things to start with and troubleshoot ,just take your time and search very carefully ,chances are you will find something that can be causing the water in the oil , Let me know how you made out ,Good luck ,Sincerely Glenn

Engine overheating-----1994 Olds Cutlass Supreme 3.4 liter v/6

There seems to be an air pocket or no antifreeze in engine block. Try this method disconnect upper radiator hose and pour water directly into hose down into engine block until it full. when its filled reconnect hose and fill up radiator. as the vehicle warms up open bleeder valve on the thermostat housing and release air from system. open slowly and BE VERY CAREFUL WATER WILL BE HOT, bleed until you get a steady stream opening and cosing valve. However if all of this don't work. You may have a bad pump. Good Luck
