What are the bad symptoms?

You don't mention if you have an over heating or oil leak problem?
You could have a bad thermostat or leaking oil pressure sender and have overheating and oil leak problems.

98 jeep Cherokee keeps over heating


Several possibilities, including blockage in coolant tubes of radiator, damaged or slipping impeller on water pump, blockage of air flow through radiator, inoperative radiator fan(s), damaged head or head gasket...

Does the radiator fan come on? If not, problem could be bad temp sensor or fan motor or wiring.

I have a 1998 Honda Civic. I bought it used. I've had problems with it overheating. I had the radiator replaced, the fan and thermostat replaced, timing belt replaced, and it had a crack in the head gasket...


I don't see any mention of having the cooling system flushed or the water pump being serviced. Both could be creating your problem. Also are you sure the new head gasket was installed properly, the right one and not upside down.

I have water gitting into the cylender head of my 1998 jeep cherokee. i replace all the gaskets but its still leaking. what could cause this?


If you replaced the cylinder head gasket it could be a cracked block or head. If you didn't replace the head gasket it could be blown. It could also be a warped head, especially if it's magnesium alloy. If only a small amount is getting into the head, you might want to try radiator sealant. In the old days we used to pour in a raw egg in the radiator while the engine is running. Most times it would stop the leak for a few weeks.

My 1996 chevy suburban wont start


If you plugged the original leak (which sounds like the head gasket) and then the radiator was leaking, and you are having water coming out of the exhaust, then you need to replace the head gaskets. It sounds like you had a blown head gasket from the start. Here's what to do.

1. Replace the head gaskets (will need intake manifold gasket as it need to come off for this procedure).

2. Replace thermostat, radiator cap (if radiator is still good)

3. Replace water pump; the water pump may have stopped working (mechanical), which in turn caused the pressure to build an blow the head gasket (the cause of the pump would be a bad thermostat. If the truck was overheating, then the thermostat was bad to begin with, then the pump, then the head gasket, so then the only place left for the water to go is out the exhaust.

Here is a list of replacements:

^ water pump
^ thermostat
^ head gaskets
^ valve cover gaskets
^ radiator cap (if radiator is good)
^ radiator : if leak from cap caused any damage to radiator (should still be good)

**Also check the radiator hoses to ensure they do not have any "bubbles". Hot water over time (with anti-freeze) erodes the inside of the hoses, and begins to "dig" holes and grooves in the hose, which evetually cause leaks. Consider replacing these as well for safe measure.

Please, let me know if you need further assistance.

Overheating issue


You need to get a pressure check on the cooling system. I suspect a bad head gasket. Engine compression leaking into a water passage would force coolant back out of the engine. Hope this helps.
