    I'm very sorry for that. I have a 1992 Lincoln town car two days ago i was driving and it started to overheat. It has never happen before i had the A/C on the maybe 30mins later i started smelling radiator fluid threw the vent when I stopped the car it was coming from the reservoir tank the top had popped off. i was told to chage out the tank awhile ago but it slipped my mind. I coulnt put the top back because the metal part you put the top on had broken off the tank do you think thats the reason my car overheated?

    Can't find the exact replacement tank, although I did find tanks on e bay which may fit. Sorry!, But if your original tank is not broken,or cracked, why not use it with a new cap? Sorry I couldn't help more. Good luck....

Car overheating

You may have a blown engine head gasket. Check your oil to see if it is milky because water is getting into the oil, and check the water to see if oil is getting into the coolant.
If you have either of these, you may need to have a new head gasket for the engine, and hopefully you do not have a cracked engine head.
This will require a fair bit of work to fix correctly. Your local garage or mechanic may be your next call.
There are some products you can use in the coolant for either of these, but it is only a temporary fix.

Audi A6 2001 quattro 2.8 mysterious over heating

Yes, replace the thermostat. Then you need to 'burp the coolant system'. Your car has all the hallmarks of air in the system, especially a heater that is cold. This is because there is no water in the heater matrix. This is why it overheats. The system must be full and with no air to circulate correctly through the radiator.

Burping involves the following steps.

Remove the lid to the reservoir, remove the radiator cap, fill the radiator to the top, turn heating on full blast, start engine and get to operating temperature, keep topping up. Squeezing the radiator hoses helps. The level will rise and then drop when the thermostat opens. Top up when bubbles stop and the level becomes constant. Put radiator cap on, top up the reservoir and put the cap on that.

First there is but one water pump, next did you bleed the air out of the cooling system as directed in the factory manual? If you did then the engine may have a leaking head gasket. Water pump picture below. You may also have a leak in the recovery tank, but that would not cause the overheating unless you let it run dray. This engine is very easy to damage if overheated, think you should let an expert look at this problem.

It could be the tanks are letting loose. It has plastic tanks with an aluminum core, right? The tanks eventually lose their seal and you will start to lose coolant through small voids, which can eventually become big voids. You can remove the radiator and take it to a radiator shop to have it bench flow-tested. But i don't know of any radiator leak causing a service light to come on. Those are factory pre-set to make you come in for sceduled maintenance.

Hope this helps,

Sounds like your Heater Matrix/Core is weeping, the brown stuff is possibly a leak sealer which someone before used to stop it.
You could try some more? remember to bleed the coolant as an air lock is possibly causing your overheating.
Park on level, when cold remove cap, start leave to idle when hot it should bubble over, top up with very warm water, wait it may do it again.
When happy pop in your leak sealer and hopefully your sorted.
Good luck! and please remember to rate my effort.
