Sounds like the cam sensor is shorted. may very well have fried when it overheated. replace the cam sensor

The white smoke it the clue. The heads need to be removed and crack checked. Usually the issues are head, gasket and warpage related. Pressure test the heads while off. Terminate the dirver for being clueless.

Just had a new cylinder head fitted to my 1997 toyota land cruiser , now its over heating what could be the problem .


It sounds like the head gasket is leaking and needs to be replaced. Keep in mind that the antifreeze is corrosive to the bearing to the engine so try to replace the gasket and engine oil soon as possible. Keep an eye on the oil level and condition, check to make sure that there is no antifreeze mixing with the engine oil. If your lucky, it could just be a bad thermostat and less work to replace the thermostat. Good luck

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee overheated


You probably messed up a rod or caused piston damage your going to need more than a head gasket usauly when you over heat a car you causing the pistonts to expand more then they need to causing scouring and exsisive piston ware by the sound of it and the year your better off replacing the whole motor or completely rebuilding the old one wich will cost more then a use motor! good luck!

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.
