If you did those replacements correctly, then you probably have a cracked head.

SOURCE: overheating

You could have several issues here. A blockage in the radiator, bad coolant temp sensor, (not turning the cooling fan on) a bad cooling fan motor. sounds as if maybe one of these may be your primary issue, and the cause of the overheating that originally caused your head gasket problem. Hope this helps

SOURCE: coolant leak

OK you have done the engine side of things. If you have an electric radiator cooling fan make sure it comes on when radiator is hot, if not the fan motor is caned or the thermostat switch is faulty. Sometimes the fan motor is supplied by a fused/relayed circuit in which case these items will also need to be checked. Check that not only does the top hose from the engine to radiator get hot but that the bottom one does too. If not this would indicate a blockage perhaps in the radiator core due to sludge. If full of sludge give both ends a flush out with a high pressure hose. Like wise do the same with the bottom hose back to the pump. If the water is circulating and the radiator fan is working then the normal cooling system is working as it should. f the engine is running hot one last thing is to find the EGR valve and check that it is opening as it should. If not the combustion temperatures go very high. One indicator of a hot engine is blue/glazed spark plugs so take one out and check it for signs of hot running. If hot then look to clean the EGR valve and associated exhaust gas feeder pipe with frayed cable, cloth and and carb cleaner spray.

SOURCE: 96 Firebird, Replaced water pump, fuel pump - Now blows head gasket.

Get yourself another mechanic. This guy is not doing his job. It shouldn't cost $1600 to change a water pump and fuel pump. No proper mechanic would remove a thermostat to replace the O-ring and put the old thermstat back in. It wouldn't be uncommon for the coolant level to drop after changing the thermostat. It probably only needs to be topped up. No, the motor doesn't have to come out to replace the head gasket and I don't see it costing $2500. Before you spend any more money there, take the car somewhere else and get another opinion. I bet that if you fill up the coolant bottle for 2 0r 3 days it will stop losing coolant. Hope this helps.

A mechanic says we need a new water pump, but if the head gaskets are blown, there is no use in putting in a water pump. He said that basically, the car is no good if the gaskets are blown. We can't...


How do you know the head gaskets are blown? Typically on most engines, if the head gasket(s) goes bad, it will either blow white smoke out the tailpipe or cause the water in the overflow tank to boil.
If the car is just overheating after a few minutes of driving, the cause could be a bad thermostat.
