I have Elantra Hyundai n have changed radiator fan , thermostate ,water pump, radiator cap at the end i also done the head gasket but still my car is getting hot n coolent boils plzz answer me


Did you get the head reworked? If not then your head is most likely damaged. Heads should always be reworked when an over heating condition exists as the aluminum head easily warps. Otherwise it sounds like you may have other issues. If the head was not torqued down in the correct sequence, head bolts not replaced (should never be reused), cracked head, cracked block....too many possibilities to diagnose over the internet.

I have a 1989 plymouth voyager mini van, It got hot and we put complete new head gaskets on it and another water pump , and a new thermostate. But it still blows water out of radiator and shows hot on heat...


If the thermostat was installed backwards, it won't open when the engine heats up. The spring/sensor should go toward the engine and the valve plate goes toward the radiator. If the hoses stay cold, it points to no water flow as above. Hope this helps!

94 Jetta w/2.0 engine overheats.I took it to a mechanic and he said my thermostat was fine.So what else could be causing it to overheat??And it does have a small oil leak too but I can't pin point it.


Overheating could be anything in the cooling system. Thermostat is out, could be radiator, water pump, broken belts which cause the water pump to not move, cylinder head warped, cracked, or the cylinder head gasket.

Sorry you have a blowing head gasket I have a Grand Am with the same problems and found out is was the head gasket. Get the car to the shop and have them perform a pressure test on the radiator and they can tell you if you have a blow head gasket failure also call intake gasket.

Fiat Car Overheating


Ok, Take the overflow hose out of the overflow tank and opput the end in a glass or jar of water. Start the motor and watch gfor bubbles coming out of the hose in the water.. Little tiny smokey white bubbles mean you have a combustion leak into your cooling system. Possible head gasket seapage.good luck

1995 ford thunderbird4.6 engine running hot. changed water pump,


Either your head gaskets are bad, or your radiator is bad. If there is no coolant, or muck on your oil dipstick, then it is your radiator. Replace it and your issue will cease. It's worth the expense to buy a "new" one. Used may be good for a week, a month, or 2 years; you never know.

HELP 86 GL-10 /getting hot


This can be a slipping belt, a worn out water pump, a damage fan or the worst of all a burnt cylinder head gasket. Turbos running at high pressures tend to blow the cylinder head gaskets. Also check the radiator.
