If the oil cooler line blew, the oil would have been pumped out quickly. Chances are especially with a GM product...The engine is seized. Sorry

SOURCE: Overheating & won't start. Oil & coolant OK.

Sounds like your thermostat is stuck in the closed position. I'd replace the thermostat and flush & refill the coolant.

SOURCE: running fine. Died and wont start. Cranks fine

can you hear the fuel pump kick on when you turn the key on but without crancking the engine? Generally the fuel pump will prime for about two to three seconds when you first turn the key on. if you don't hear it that's probably the culprit. If you do hear it it may be a bad pump. also should check to see if you have spark. You can do this by removing a plug wire and using another spark plug. Ground the plug to somthing metal and have someone crank the engine (making sure you are not touching the plug or metal) You should see a spark while cranking. Good luck

It's tough to diagnose a car reading just a few lines online. First off you need to check if your fans were not working which cause the overheating. If you overheated the car to the point where the needle reached the red zone, you most likely have a bent head (since our heads are aluminum) and need to be heated back into shape at a shop. You might not be able to initially start the car due to the "coolant temp sensor" being messed up by this. Change out the thermostat too since that is a cheap replacement. You will also need to check to see if you blew your head gasket. You can check by leaving the radiator cap off and filling the coolant to the top. Then starting the car and see if the coolant starts bubbling and starts to decrease in volume. Depending on how much was involved in the damage, it may not be worth fixing this. I spent a fortune. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: why does my car overheat for a month straight but coolant in it then doesntfor 2 months thjen does again

you have a coolant leak somewhere ! check the intake manifold gaskets for leaking, the water pump maybe leaking out of relief hole on bottom of pump. make sure the coolant recovery tank is not leaking. look very carefully and you will find it.

Ran hot and died while adding water to rad now wont start


Blown headgasket is most likely. Possibly cracked head/block (water may be in the oil) If you are lucky, the spark plug wires are just wet and killing spark. Hard to tell with no vehicle information.

1999 Jeep not starting after overheat.


the heat from the overheating expanded your pistons rings when you placed coolent in the stayed that way which is why the jeep is rooling over harder, try turning the motor by hand, you do this with the switch off and use gloves to grab the fan blade it should turn somewhat hard but if this is the issue it will be almost not going to happen. To compare use a friends car with the same overall motor 4/6 v6 v8 what ever motor type you have

2004 dakota 3.7l 2wd, overheated on the freeway running rough now and the next day it started exhausting a lot of white smoke when i started it and idled nroughly. It didnt overheat at idle but i didnt...


Sounds like a head gasket from your description. Look for coolant in oil (dipstick will look milky) If coolant is mixed in oil that would explain the rough idle (fouling plugs)

Last night my car started to die on me when i got off the freeway. It just shut off. Then when i would come to stop lights it would shut off again. So my oil light came on and when i put the oil in there...


Dont know about the prices but the diagnosis sounds correct. Driving a vehicle without oil for even 1 mile will destroy the crankshaft bearings. If you drive it so far that it starts to overheat you've probably totalled the pistons and liners as well with a warped head thrown in for good measure. You can bin that engine and get a replacement motor (which will probably be quickest and cheapest if you buy used), or do a total rebuild. Shop around and ask friends for recommendations as to reputable mechanics. Perhaps someone on Fixya may be able to recommend. Which area are you in?

Blown head gasket


Check for possible water in oil, also remove radiator cap and start engine does water want to pump out of radiator, is there white smoke coming out of tail pipe, if yes to any of those blown head gasket, if not sure yet remove spark plugs crank engine over is there any coolant coming out of spark plug holes, if yes blown head gasket, and last have a block test any repair shop can do this.Good luck

Water leaking from behind a pully on the block. how or what can i do?


the pully that the coolant is leaking out from sounds like your water pump. with no coolant in the system the temperature gage wont read the correct temperature. replace the water pump and pray that the engine didn't overheat, as to do permanent damage.
