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.

are you sure the thermostat is not installed backwards. Remove it and see if you still overheat.

Did you send the head out to be tested for cracks. Did you inspect the block for cracks ??

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.

523i overheating


It sounds like it could just be your thermostat sticking. it regulates the temperature of your coolant by opening and closing allowing coolant to pass through the radiator. at the same time the water pump could have failed and just depending on how the vehicle is being driven the temperature rises and falls back and forth. also there could be a clog in the cooling system. Right off hand it doesn't sound like the head gasket has failed but its always a possibility. usually a thermostat can run around $350; water pump $450; headgasket can be pretty pricey $3000- $5000 depending on if once the head is removed its sent to the machine shop for sublet work or not. (highly recommend if keeping the vehicle) and always remember on an older vehicle if the cylinder head is taken off there are plenty of other things that might have to be replaced just because of the complexity of the job and how many different systems of the engine have to be disassembled

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.
