My land rover is always threatening to overheat had pressure test done they did the test for blown head gasket it blows cold air I changed thermostat there are no leaks anywhere please help 2002 land rover...

What blows cold air? The heater? Sounds like a radiator problem. I'd have someone flush the cooling system if it has not already been done. Could also be a bad or going bad Coolant pump, unless it has been replaced. It might be smart to do both at the same time. If the coolant pump is bad, it could explain no circulation of hot coolant through your heater coil.

Coolant presure high heater remains cold

Sounds like a few things it could be; A; is the water pump working properly, B: is the thermostat working properly (does the car come up to operating temperature around 195 degrees and remain there) C: is there any chance that maybe you are low on coolant/antifreeze, check both radiator and overflow container. D: Last of all is there any chance you may have installed the wrong head gasket or had it up side down? (if all else checks out i would assume that this is your problem.) NEED TO ASK YOURSELF WHAT CAUSED THE HEAD GASKET TO GO IN THE FIRST PLACE, BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T RESOLVE THAT ISSUE THAN IT WILL ONLY BE A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE IT HAPPENS AGAIN. Hope this helps

Heater blowing cold air and I'am loosing water from my plastic container

You have a coolant (radiator fluid) leak somewhere. Low coolant will cause you the no heat problem but things could get a lot worse. Have a pressure test done on your radiator. Look for any coolant leaks from your vehicle. If you find leaks, tighten or replace that part if necessary. Also have your thermostat checked as well.

Car heating has failed only blowing cold air this is on a rover 45 on a 52 plate i am entering any modrl in description as no rover is available

this is quite a common problem on some of the older rovers (especially the metro). gunk n deposits over time slowly block up the heater matrix and reduce the flow of water through it this will reduce the heat coming out. however there maybe another reason

a few things to check first, start the car and let it idle. once its running for a while, make sure the temperature on the engine gets to its normal place then try the heaters see if there is any change in there heating. if there is no heat at all at this point its possible either the heater matrix behind the dashboard has blocked up or the regulator valve controlling the flow of warm water into the heaters has broken.

check the drivers and passengers footwells if there wet to the touch, (not slightly damp) its a strong possibility that the heater matrix has broken or is leaking and thus not warming up like normal (this will need to be fixed ASAP as it will eventually drain all your engines coolant).

hope this helps.

I have new headgaskets and thermastat no heat in car and still over heating on my 99 subaru outback

If everything was done just right the problem might be air trapped i the system. Add the coolant slowly while running and feel the heater hoses. Sometimes just mild pressure on the heater hoses will push out the remaining air. Don't forget to open radiator bleed screw on passenger side. Makes it much easier. Good luck and have a great day.

To buy rover 75, what are the common problem


The main problem to watch out for on these Rovers is that they are extremely prone to headgasket failure. This Rover uses a K series engine and headgasket problems are almost inevitable at some point during the engines life due to poor design of the cooling system.

You do not say what size the engine is on the model that you are considering but 1.8 engine is particularly troublesome in this respect.

Other things to consider is the fact that Rover have long gone out of business and spare parts and body parts will become more and more difficult to source over the coming years for these cars.

There are a few other known niggles with electrics and immobiliser failures but head gasket is the main thing to watch out for. There is an uprated headgasket that can be fitted which is said to minimise the risk of the problem occurring but even the cost for this as a preventative measure is likely to run upwards of £300 to include labour and fitting.

I have included this link which outlines some other key issues to look out for on this model.

Hope this helps and please do rate my answer. Many Thanks.

My truck seid it was over heating when i turned on the heater it stopped.then the next day i turned on the heater it would only blow cold air and then it went hot and then it went cold again

Check you coolant level could be low or your thermstat could be messed up or your water pump could be going out. Worst case blown headgasket or cracked heads. On most cars when you turn the heat on it pulls heat out of the radiator. On most cars when you turn the cold ac on it pulls cold coolant from the radiator to use. Many cars today are coming with systems that are separate.

you need to replace the heater core and pressure text the radiator cap, replace if it leaks down go to a parts store to do this also you need to replace freeze plugs if you don't they will blow and ruin the engine,a slo check that the water pump is not bad, loosen the pump belt and see if you can wiggle the water pump with fan connected, if you have any play replace the water pump. and add new anti freeze.

Land Rover 3.9 V8i Cooling Problem

Pressure test the system, it sounds like head gaskets that is backing into the water jackets and not the oil ports, which is the best of the two. Have heads checked for cracks of warping.

I hear a "swooshing" sound underneath the dashboard.coolant smell

You have an air leak in your coolant pipes under the dash.
There is air in the system.
When the engine is off the coolant is dripping onto the carpet.
