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.

It sounds like crank is worn or bearings or both.to much clearance between them.i gather the oil pressure drops right down to hardly nothing.I gather u cleaned the oil pick up when u did the sump.u might want to do a engine flush to clean the oil ports.

I have a 89 pontiac firebird Trans Am "GTA" 5.7L tuned port injected. My engine gets hot somehow and my car has a quick start but lower power afterward. What could the problem be?


Fix the radiator cooling problems. You will damage the engine if you keep running the car in an overheated condition.

1. Replace the thermostat in the cooling system
2. Replace the water pump
3. Flush the cooling system thoroughly and re-fill with the correct coolant. Bleed any air out of the system otherwise you will have problems with air blockages and thus poor coolant flow.

You probably do not know how to do any of this so take it to a reputable workshop or cooling specialist to have it done.

Temp gauge shot up to max, grey smoke out of exhaust, never boiled up,car tried to run but lumpy, now no water in rad but oil is normal, filler bottle cap wont screw back on,, peugeot 405


sounds like blown head gasket (through exhaust port) fill with water and start up, look under car, and see if water is coming out of the exhaust pipe)note: if head gasket is blown thru exhaust port you won't have water in the oil. it will come out of the exhaust. if this is the case then possibly can fix with (k&w block sealer or comparable block sealer) since no water in oil engine should be fine.) but follow directions to a T on block sealer if you don't it could stop up the radiator and you'd be back in the same position. also make sure you fix problem that caused it, probably bad thermostat or water pump.

My 2004 chrysler sebring overheats really bad, i can barely drive 3 miles before it reaches 3/4. I replaced the thermostat and both of the fans kick on.


you would only have water in the oil if there was a a leak in the head gasket or water jacket ports in the engine. if you are losing water,that quickly,then it's either a hose,radiator, or water pump. put a piece of cardboard under veh after youve filled the radiator and veh is cool, that way you can determine the location of leak. if you don't see the location of leak the next day, then odds are it is the water pump and only loses water after engine warms up an pressure forces it out the weep hole in the pump while driving. (note: if you have white smoke coming out of tailpipe then you probably have a blowed head gasket,)

Over heats all the time replaced water pump and flushed it out could this have a bad head


If it has a bad head or head gasket there will be water in the oil.With the head bolted on tight with a good gasket,this prevents the oil from entering the oil ports.Did you check to see if the thermastat was openong up to let the water flow?You can put it in a pan of boiling water to see if it is good or not.

Oil in radiator


Not a good sign, must take your car immediately to check if there is any crack in the engine block, engine head or water ports., water pump assembly.
Sometimes if there is a crack it might be serious as water might seep into the oil and make the lubrication bad resulting in a total packed up engine. Check your oil forr traces of water , if so get help immediately..

1997 blazer 4.3 i pulled the radiator how can pressure test to see if the motor oil cooler is bad in it


Just plug one port on the engine oil cooler, and use a hand vacuum pump to put the cooler under vacuum, see if it holds, if the vacuum leaks out you hahe a leak. In the event you do not have/ can not get a vacuum pump, you can plug one port on the cooler, and put about 15 psi of compressed air in it, submerge the entire radiator in water, with the cap and hose ports open if you see any bubbles the cooler is leaking.
