You're only solution is to remove the head and have it checked at a machine shop for warpage, cracks and corosion, when installing use new bolts, make sure all surfaces are spotless, don't even touch them as your fingers will leave a residue, follow torque specs to the letter, and use all new fluids, and yes you will need a manual

It sounds like you had a blown head gasket and it was leaking into the oil or into the exhaust and being burned. if you look at the oil on the dip stick it may look milky. if the head gasket starts leaking internally then it can / will cause overheating

Toyota truck does it have to over heat to blow a head gasket


You don't need to overheat to blow a head gasket.

One other test you can do is remove the radiator cap and run the engine. There is likely to be lots of bubbles and perhaps even spouting of water out of the radiator if the head gasket has blown.

It certainly sounds like you have this issue.
By the way, you will use up all the coolant and damage the engine if you continue to run it with a blown gasket.

How to tell if i have a blown head gasket


If the cooling system is loosing coolant and there are no leaks onto the ground, or if the cooling system is building up too much pressure, the problem could be a blown or leaking head gasket.
A mechanic would use an exhaust gas analyzer to "sniff" the radiator for exhaust gas. The radiator can also be capped and checked for pressure coming from the engine.

I think my car blew its head gasket,but theirs no water in oil,if idling temperature stay normal,fans do come on when idling for long.I`ve changed spark plugs,plug wires,thermostat and heat sensor unit.As...


white smoke from the exhaust and overheating would almost certainly mean a blown head gasket.
the head gasket has gone between a cylinder and a cooling channel so exhaust gasses can get in to the cooling system resulting in the boiling and water from the cooling system is getting into the cylinder resulting in the white smoke (actually steam) from the exhaust.
the exhaust manifold is a separate issue that can be replaced when the head gasket is repaired.

Yesterday leaving work a radiator line broke. I fixed the line refilled the fluids and started to complete the drive home. Not even three miles down the road my truck was pegged out of the thermostat...


check for blown head gasket. Open radiator cap, start engien and look for bubbles coming up the radiator. If exhaust gas is coming out there, your head gasket is blown. Let me know if you have more questions.

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.

I own a m reg 95 model civic. The car is overheating steam is coming out of the radiator. I tested the cooling fan and it does not seem to come on when the engine is hot. HELP!


I hate to say it but you might have blown a head gasket. Try this- in the morning/anytime, (cold engine) pop the hood and remove the radiator cap. Start the engine. If it bubbles/blows out antifreeze- yep, blown head gasket. Most people think you'll have water in your oil if you do have a blown head gasket. It can blow 2 ways. Exhaust gases into coolant passage (your case) or vise versa (hince the water/antifreeze in oil). Try that- lemme' know
