SOURCE: Blew the head gasket and had head resurfaced.

SOUNDS LIKE THE TOP OF THE PISTONS ARE HITTING THE VALVES. IF YOU HAVE HAD THE HEAD SKIMMED YOU ARE BRINGING THE HEAD .018IN  CLOSER TO THE BLOCK. REALISTICLY YOU SHOULD GET A  THICKER HEAD GASKET OR TRY PUTTING 2 ON. IT SOUNDS EXTREME BUT ENGINES ARE VERY PROCICE AND THESE MOVING PARTS ARE VERY CLOSE TO START OFF WITH.

SOURCE: overheating they say head gasket changed

If you have white smoke from the tailpipe, coolant in the engine oil, engine oil in the cooling system, that indicates a head gasket failure. However, the most definitive way to test is to have a hydrocarbon test done on the cooling system (checks for exhaust gasses that obviously don't belong in there).
If the system comes up clean, you still can have either a leaking intake gasket, partially obstructed radiator (many times flush will go around obstructions not through them), a malfunctioning electric fan or fan relay, or even an obstruction in front of the a/c condenser or between the condenser and radiator (leaves, plastic bags etc) Don't forget though even if the cause is other than a gasket, if repeatedly or severely overheated the head gaskets can also fail. That is why complete testing is very important.
good luck

You have coolant getting into the cylinders, most likely the head gasket has failed. I would recommend you avaid using the car until it gets fixed.

you need comma's bad. (old post., doing 0 answers for 60 days)
are you saying it overheated after a new head gasket? i sure can not tell. my guess, not, my guess is this.
car overheated (first)
compression flat on x cylinders.
so i check head for warp, not warped (.002' max) so tried a new head gasket.
hook up computer , (scan tool, you mean the OBD2 scan tool?)
sure , the immobilizer.
the car engine brain, is called PCM, not connected kills all spark and fueling. in fact all that is PCM , created, all the time.
so what computer? some cars have 12 on board,

the service manual is there. see ISC?
http://hondatech.info/downloads/Auto/Manuals/Accord/

the shifter has a park lockout and has a bypass. feature, see the
operators guide for bypass steps.
these the lost operators guide here, for how the IMMO works.
http://justgivemethedamnmanual.com/honda/honda-accord-owners-manuals/

my guess, is you figured all IMMO issues, and reset it and configured it.

Car overheated very fast, now there is a leak and the car wont start, could it be the water pump or is it more serious


Well it would depend on why the engine won't start.
If it overheated and the head gasket blew out, you may not have enough compression to start the engine.
A water pump leak would not prevent the engine from starting.

My 2003 Ford focus blew a head gasket a while back. I got fixed that, changed out the water pump, thermostate, water resevoir, and a few hoses. It started to overheat again, but the thermostate wasn&#


If you got a blown head gasket, water is getting mixed with your oil, pretty much ruining it, and your oil's viscosity will be affected, causing oil pressure to drop and your light turns on.

How do you know your car is overheating if it's not showing in your gauge?

When replacing blown gaskets there are a few things that is best to do, like sandblasting the heads, clean, scrape block and use proper torque an sequence, only removing old gasket and placing new ones won't fix the issue, those gaskets go through extreme conditions, expansion, temp changes, etc, they need to be put mindfully. I mention this because it seems you changed a lot and ended up with the original issue...

If your gasket is blown you need to fix that asap, then identify where is your coolant leak/blockage that causes alleged overheating, doing a coolant flush might help. Good luck.

Car overheating, I know I blew the head gasket, and I'm in the process of fixing it right now, but what is a good head gasket? Also what could be other reasons behind the car overheating?


Stick with the OEM headgasket from the toyota parts department, you are correct in assuming that there is another problem that caused the overheating in the first place. Overheating is usually caused by an external coolant leak or a blockage in the cooling system, possibly a partially restricted radiator, stuck thermostat.

Car was overheating...replaced water pump, radiator and hoses. Got car from shop and had hugh white clouds following me home. Drove home and immedeately parked it. Started it every other day for 2 weeks...


Hello,

I am sorry to say it looks like you have blown a head gasket. What happen is when it was overheating, it was maybe because the water pump of course was not providing water/antifreeze to the motor. Now of course that is why you took it to the shop to have water pump replaced, radiator and hoses and etc. Maybe just Maybe the thermostat could of been the original problem that cause the overheating to begin with, however that is pass tense now.

When there is white smoke pouring out the back, especially with the prior problem with the over heating, it most likely warped your head, which of course cause a leak at the head gasket. Now, the load thump or pop you hook under hood, could be because the head gasket is blown possible now threw a rod, or piston. I do not want to scare you and tell you a lot of stuff that you don't want to hear, but it will be expensive to fix if you blew a head gasket and threw a rod, or piston. Best thing to do, is i hate to say it, is get it into the shop. Yes, it would have to be towed. Unless you have a real good shop near by or good friend that is mechanically inclined to verify my diagnosis.

Car overheated and wont start, does crank over, it blew a radiator hose, replaced it, but still wont crank over


Sorry! sounds like this one is too far gone! If it blew the radiator hose off the engine, then the head gaskets or the cylinder head itself has failed. You will quite possibly need a new engine put in your Cavalier.

Car overheated and wont start up..


Check for oil in the water, water in the oil, water signifigantly present in the exhaust. Very good chance you blew a head gasket. Don't know what type or age of car as to if it is worth the money to fix. That will also depend on your budget,need and mechanical ablity. Good luck
