    Well ive got a similar problem or possibly the same problem. The temp gauge goes all the way to hot the engine misses the anti-freeze is coming out the exhaust manifold. I am possibly thinking that the head gasket is the problem but im really hoping its the water pump considering the labor for the head gasket is quite a lot.

Could be the water pump or head gasket---if the head gasket is bad your oil would look milky.

I have a 1992 buick skylark v6 3300 it is overheating no leaks no oil in the water or water in the oil no antifreeze in te exaust just changed the thermostat

Probably the water pump, when the engine is completely cool, open the radiator cap, start the engine, turn on the heat full, and check to see if you have circulation at the radiator cap nosal you should see movement of water if pump is good....

My car is Hyundai sonata 2004 v6 I have over heating I just flushed the radiator out, changed the thermostat, changed the cap,changed the temperature sensor,water pump is working ,no leaks and fans are...

Boy you have done everything I'd suggest to try,the only thing I can think of when you installed the thermostat did the housing holding it craft maybe a hairline just big enough to cause pressure problems, only other thing else is maybe you have a clog in a hose or in the radiator sorry that's all I got,other then the thermostat they sold you was junk one thing I'd try returning it and get a new one you never said it it was used or new

Is there a bleed vaule to remove any air pockets in the cooling system?

you need to perform a cooling system pressure test on the cooling system and test the radiator cap, taurus's had problem the coolant tanks splitting, and defective caps, also have a co2 test performed to determine if you have a headgasket leaking exhaust gasses into cooling system 23yr ford tech..

My problem is tha i have a LEXUS es300 1992, I removed the two block head. Now everithing is back again but the motor get hot in fifteen minut.

check to make sure the radiator is nut air bound check to see at what temp the fan comes on and check to ,make sure the fan belt is turning the water pump// 1st watch to see for air bound look in the raider fill cap watch for it to drop // 2nd if you can see the antifreeze is moveing//3rd if the fan doesn't come on you need a new temp sensor switch

Water comes out of the over flow bottle(i checked the cap)

make sure you dont over fill the radiator bottle past max, something else to try is run the system with out the cap on for a few minutes at idle to expel any air pockets in your cooling system.

Water circleation problem and heater not working ive changed radiator and water pump and thermostat

It sound like you got a air pocket in the system when you changed all that stuff. some times there is a bleeder for that on the thermastate it self. if not you can do it with the radiator cap just loosen the cap and let it run when the antifreeze starts bubbling that means its pussing the air out youll have to put more fluid in it while your ding it to keep it filled when it stops bubbling put the cap back on and see if that did it. Hope this helps

Just changed the water pump and now the engine is getting hot with coolant in it.

Did you wait for the thermostat to open, let the car cool down, and refill the system? Also, make sure the cooling fans are coming on.

Overheating and no hot air from heater.

Leave rad cap off when starting from cold, turn heater(not defrost) on, and top up coolant in rad as you go, to about an inch or 2 from top of rad. Let engine run with cap off until your rad fan comes on & off 3 or 4 times. Every once in a while, rev engine slightly for 5-10 seconds to help bleed air out faster. After about 3 or 4th time fan comes on, you should be o.k. to put cap back on all the way & fill bottle to proper level. Heat should be there now. Give it a try & let me know how it goes.
