there are about 8 tests to prove this. and lots of signs.
1: fails compression test.
2: water in engine oil.
3: carbon and oil floating top of RAD filler hole. cap off dead cold
4: constant need for adding AF.
5: steam out tail pipe end, hot engine, fully hot.

My lower rad hose blew off and eng.heated.I let veh cool down nd restarted it and eng. sounded fine so i put hose back on and replaced t-stat and filledf with coolant. I then went to start the eng. to let...

How to check if its a head gasket failure: Fill all holes in rad and pipes so the coolant stays in. When it has cooled, take of the coolant filler cap and watch the coolant when you start the car. If bubbles are coming up and can be seen when you look in the coolant filler, the head gasket has gone.

Car is over heating. antifreeze leaks out the top of the reserve.

can be caused by many things.
does it leak (overheat) all the time.
does it do it at first start, parked, idling, for 5mi, or 30min.?
or only after engine warmup ,then i drive and only at stop signs
does it overheat moving fast , steady 45mph speed?
there are many tests, all are easy.
first off , it can be bad RAD,thermostat, lost coolant (ignored service) bad water pump, bad RAD CAP.(replace if bad)
or cracked engine bock, cracked head, bad head to block gasket.
to name a few.
if it only fails at stops signs look for RAD tube blockage
i use an IR pyro gun to find these.
there are 3 more tests, ask.

My radiator was changed and the thermastat but my car is still over heating, why could that be? nohoses r broken.

sounds like a head gasket blown, when engine is cold, remove rad cap and make sure rad is full, start engine and see if bubbles are pushed out of the rad filler spout, a blown head gasket will pressure up your coolant system, was the rad changed because of overheating, do you have the thermostat installed wrong? the sensor side toward engine. if head gasket is ok, next you could check your rad cap, is the gasket ok? can you check if it holds the required pressure. might need replacing. also if you could pressure test the coolant system and see if it holds.

1997 tacoma sr5 6 cylinder 4x4 uses radiator fluid no leak sign

you could have blown the head gasket the only real way to test for this is whats called a "sniffer test" they **** some water out the rad and test it to see if there is any hydrocarbons in it if there is the head gasket has blown also if you over heated the motor you may need a new set of spark plugs, as for the leaky rad, get some "rad seal" or "rad weld" and tip that in the rad that normaly stops the leak for a year or so,

I have a 1993 toyota camry le v6, that is not over heating but the water is very hot to a boiling point, leaving the radior dry by pushing all of the water to the coolant reservoir. Is this the cause of a...

I'd remove the thermostat and run it. If the problem continues, it could be head gaskets, but, v6 head gaskets rarely fail. Also make sure that teh rad cap is good; have it pressure tested.

My 1993 corvette over heats at every stop and in slow traffic iam affraid to drive any where fear of my car over heating

This could be cause by a variety of problems such as low coolant, bad water pump, head gasket leak, manifold leak, malfunctioning fan clutch, broken electric fan, etc etc.

If you have an electric fan, it is designed to turn on triggered by a temperature sensor located near your top rad hose mounting on the intake manifold. If this sensor is broke you will over heat without the fan kicking in at stops. Same with a clutched fan. Could be not moving enough air at a stop.

Check your coolant levels and let your vehicle run while watching to be sure your fan kicks in. Keep your fingers away from it while running. It can start up anytime. If all is well, you may have a plugged rad or restricted rad.

My heating is not working nothing wrong with termostat

low water clogged heater matrix or head gasket, take rad cap off, start engine, if bubbly then head or gasket, if all fine you need a matrix, this is very common to leak or clog, things like rad weld blocks them in months to come.

97Dodge Intrepid Problem

Numerous things can cause this, plugged rad, faulty thermostat, low coolant, cooling fan not operating, bad cap,and if it's left too long or overheats too much, you could cause major damage like head gasket, head cracking. The later are major expenses, so don't let it get to that. Does it heat up on highway, or in stop & go more? Does turning your heater on, make it cool down a bit? Do you know if your rad has been flushed lately, and thermostat changed?
