My 93toyota camery overheated cause of split n radiator replaced with new radiator but still blows water out of overflow think could b waterpump n sounds like missing could that b because of the water blew...


Possibly blew a head gasket allowing combustion gases to enter the cooling system and force coolant out of the overflow tank. This can be verified by doing a compression check on each cylinder.

My 2000 Jeep G Cherokee, 4.0L, 2wd ran hot during the drive home...it clattered a little but did not shut off...after getting it home I discovered that the coolant bottle cap had been blown off and there...


The water will keep blowing out this it common on this motor the cylinders compression pushes air into water jacket forcing it back out most likely it is gasket or warped head but there is a reason for this weather it water pump thermostat or cracked radiator

1993 Isuzu Rodeo oil not going to top of motor after replacing head gasket?


Wrong Head Gasket or installed wrong

Other possible problems

Given it is over 20 years old, do you really
want to invest even the time into working on it?

Who did the engine repairs,couldn't be a repair shop
or it would have acted up before you got it back!

1999 ford ranger once it drive an it beomes hot u turn it off try to restart turn nothing happens


You just blew the head on the engine and head gasket as well as possible freeze plug(s). There is test kit that can be built with deep purple die that will turn yellow as it heats up and that means your in deep problems. I could tell you how to fix it for less than $75 as long as you did not blow the freeze plugs. Pour Head Gasket sealer liquid into radiator that runs about $45 and then after running for a bit then install radiator rust prohibitor. It should stay much much cooler. If the head is to far gone then the more expensive head job has to be done. The head has to be machined and then re-installed with new gasket.

Ran Hot Won't Start


You just blew your head and gasket. I just had that same thing happen last month. When it over heated is the time that you blew the engine head's gasket. When you kept driving it is when you damaged your engine head. You also should have noticed that the as soon as you put water in the radiator that it was leaking out back of engine from the freeze plug or plugs. Cost of freeze plug is couple bucks "looks like small cup cake tin." The Freeze plug has to be replaced 1st, but depending on how bad the head is damaged you could get off cheap by pouring in a $40 gasket sealer liquid down into the radiator and lots of water to keep the water level up. I would also remove the thermostat and put host back on. Since your car is older that I do not think it ruined the values or rods.

My 1996 dakota ran hot blew the top off the radiator. i replaced it now when it starts it will not idle and runs rough


you may want to have a block check done on the cooling system to see if the head gaskets are any good as this can cause the top of the rad to blow off and the rough running and poor idle.

My engine ran hot, now i am told i need a new head gasket or a new engine?


unfortunately this is probably correct if the car got very hot.
most new cars have alloy heads and if the car gets too hot due to cooling problem the head can warp.
a new head gasket and having the head skimmed flat again is one solution, the other is a new engine.

if you want a second opinion then most garages will be able to do a pressure test on the cooling system which would confirm a blown head gasket

I have a 1995 cadilac elderado that keeps over heating, it has excessive preasure building up we have changed the thermastate, ran a hot wire to the fan so it always runs , changed tempature sending unite...


When the engine is cold,and the radiator is full,starting the engine,does it blow out the radiator?If it does,then a head,or head gasket is blown.If not,bleed the system of air.The engine cooling system might have air that needs to be purged out.

1995 Nissan Maxima Over heating, no heat blowing, water not moving


Simple thing to test first would be to pressure check the radiator cap. Next would be to check for combustion gases in the radiator indicating a leaking head gasket.  It is an aluminum head and iron block engine and there is a possibility that antifreeze anti corrosionpackage runs out due to over age then fails due to too long in the engine it results in galvanic corrosion at the head gasket-commonly resulting in a failed head gasket.  There are other engines that are vastly more prone to this than the maxima engine.  If there is a leaking head gasket the gases could rise to the top of the system and block the water flow into the heater.  Listen for gurgling sound in the heater.
