The timing will not be affected for the timing parts are not touched at all upon removing the heads

Overheating, and oil in water reservoir

Oil in the coolant tells me you have a blown head gasket. Only real way to repair it is to remove the cylinder head, check it for warpage and cracks, then replace the gasket (big job). There is a sealing system I've seen advertised but have no hands on experience with that and tend to think it may be temporary at best.

1995 Ford Probe, won't turn off...keeps overheating, even after thermostat replacement.

OK how hot does it get Boiling and loosing all coolant in header tank and radiator/at what milage from filling to stopping because of overheating??????????????????????
Problems could be blockage in water system (radiator /thermostat in the correct way around/bugs and dust in radiator inner and outer core/water pump faulty (will cause hot top hose and cold bottom of radiator ) or even bottom hot /top cold ..and if all the above is good then your problem is that you have a BLOWN HEAD GASKET and the compression is being forced into the coolant system as the compression is above 110 PSI and can be forced into the coolant area and hot gases cause overheating.....
Let me know how you get on A.S.A.P Ron

My husband and I have a 1995 Oldsmobile Aurora. We just changed the oil about 2 weeks ago. He checked the fluids earlier and the oil was low and the car is running hot. What could be causing this?

If you changed the oil filter at the same time check that it hasnt come loose and leaked some oil though there would be signs of that where the car site. If it is overheating check your water as well.

Also check the oil for water and the water for oil as you will want to make sure that you havent done any head damage or blown the gasket.

My 1999 Aurora keeps overheating abd the water that we keep putting in the radiator keep disappearing. We have check the fans and the waterpump and hoses for leaks. But have not found any. If I drive...

maybe possiable it is coming out of the overflow, check the cap, also make sure car runs for awhile when adding coolant to avoid any air pockets

Overheating and now engine 'clicking noises.

possible causes of overheating are, dirty cooling system, clogged radiator, bad thermostat. Use only distilled water with a good quality coolant.

still overheating? have your top head checked - warped head, valves, valve seats, etc. You might need to have your engine's compression checked if it is still within specs.
