Hi, its a good chance the head gasket has gone and also the thermostat will need checking and also the water pump.
if the water pump or the thermostat failed then this would cause the engine to over heat and blow the head gasket.

If your doing the work yourself then get a workshop manual as you will need it for the head bolt sequence and also the torque settings and timing marks for the timing belt.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Why did my 2011 DTS Cadillac overheat?


An overheated engine can be caused by anything that decreases the cooling system's ability to absorb, transport and dissipate heat; therefore engines can overheat for a variety of reasons. Let's take a look at some of the most common causes.
Cooling System Leaks
This is the primary cause of engine overheating. Possible leak points include hoses, the radiator, water pump, thermostat housing, heater core, head gasket, freeze plugs, automatic transmission oil cooler, cylinder heads and block. Perform a pressure test. A leak-free system should hold pressure for at least one minute.
Wrong Coolant Concentration
Be sure to use the coolant recommended by your vehicle's manufacturer. The wrong type of coolant and/or mixing the incorrect concentration of coolant and distilled water can also result in engine overheating. The best bet is to perform a complete flush and fill.
Bad Thermostat
A thermostat is a heat-sensitive valve that opens and closes in response to engine temperature. Heated engine coolant passes through to the radiator when the thermostat is in the open position. In the closed position, it prevents the flow of coolant to speed up the warming of a cold engine. When the thermostat gets stuck in the closed position, coolant stays in the engine and quickly becomes overheated, resulting in engine overheating.
Blocked Coolant Passageways
Rust, dirt and sediment can all block or greatly impede the flow of coolant through the cooling system. This can limit the system's ability to control engine temperature, which may result in higher operating temperatures and engine overheating. Once again, a flush and fill is recommended to remove debris.
Faulty Radiator
By passing through a series of tubes and fins, coolant temperature is reduced in the radiator. Leaks and clogging are some of the most common causes of radiator failure. Any disruption in the radiator's function can lead to elevated engine temperature and overheating.
Worn/Burst Hoses
A hose that contains visual cracks or holes, or has burst will result in leaks and disrupt the flow of engine coolant. This can result in overheating.
Bad Radiator Fan
A fan blows air across the radiator fins to assist in reducing the temperature of the coolant. A fan that wobbles, spins freely when the engine is off, or has broken shrouds will not be able to reduce the temperature to proper level, thus possibly resulting in engine overheating.
Loose or Broken Belt
A belt is often the driving link that turns the water pump at the correct speed for proper coolant flow through the cooling system. If a belt is loose or broken, it cannot maintain the proper speed, thus resulting in poor coolant flow and ultimately, engine overheating.
Faulty Water Pump
Known as the 'heart' of the cooling system, the water pump is responsible for pressurizing and propelling engine coolant through the cooling system. Any malfunction of the water pump, including eroded impeller vanes, seepage or wobble in the pump shaft, can prevent adequate coolant flow and result in engine overheating.

2002 malibu runs hot.


Sounds like you have a faulty head gasket or maybe a cracked head.This can cause overheating and the check engine light to come on.The code for the o2 sensor is probably caused by coolant getting into the exhaust system and coating the sensor.The coolant fan may work but it cannot remove enough heat from the rad to make the engine cool off.Try some engine coolant stop leak to see if it will help.This maybe only a temperary fix.Let me know if you need more.MOE

My car keeps overheating but no leaks, and the thermostat hose still gets hot. whats the problem? its a 99 crown vic police package


since this vehicle has a thermal clutch fan I'd start there

are ALL the hoses getting hot?
  • upper rad hose
  • lower rad hose
  • heater hoses
does the overheating reduce when you turn on the heat at full speed

Car over heating


any leaks? if your coolant is disipearing then yes its a leak or the head gasket is eating it, make sure your over flow is full, if it keeps eating it with out leaking out of the engine you need a hg, if its not eating it and still over heating then the water pump is out or it could be leaking from the water pump also. either way your loosing coolant somewhere and the water pump cant push air so the engine over heats from lack of coolant and with lack of coolant it doesnt flow up to the thermostat and to the heater core and that is why you arnt getting heat in the car. sorry if its not an easy fix but atleast its explained clearer for you. good luck let me know how it works out

Coolant Leak in 1997 Saturn SL1


if there is no heat coming from the vents i would bleed the coolant system for air, usually trapped air in the system will cause this lack of heat.
