Check for dampness in the footwells; the heater core may have sprung a leak resulting in coolant loss and therefore overheating. Heater core replacement may require some disassembly of the lower dashboard and glove compartment.

Flush clogged heater core

Do you get steam out of the exhaust? Foamy Oil on your oil dip stick? Oil slicks in your water? Overheating? These are all things that could point to a bad gasket. If you smell anti freeze or are getting steam out of your defrost .. that would point to a bad heater core. I base my answer on the assumption when you say no heat you mean your heater is not putting out hot air???

White smoke is coming out of the exhaust. my cars is constantly overheating and the coolant is constantly running out but with no leaks. Oil in car comes out cloudy even after oil change

This is serious, the white smoke is steam, which means that water is getting into the conbustion chambers, it sounds like a cylinderhead gasket has gone or a cracked cylinder head. I am afraid an expensive garage job.

Car overheated. Still runs

did it steam from under the hood or was water running from it when you cut it off? If water ran from it when you cut it off in the middle like the front that is your water pump. if steam was coming from the hood you could have a busted hose. if radiator is boiling hot could be your thermostat. if water is not holding in your radiator then you may have a busted radiator or blown a gasket. if your motor is still good do not drive if it runs hot you can blow a head gasket or the motor and to get it fixed a lot more money and you don't want that. as you put water in your vehicle make sure it is running while you are doing this. hope this helps

I believe that you head gasket is going. Your fluid is going out the tailpipe as steam. They are kind of famous for going a little at a time until you blow the motor

Sounds like a blown head gasket. Check for water in the oil. Check to see if water and/or steam coming out of exhaust pipe. If you are getting steam, you are losing water. Sooner or later it will overheat.

Hyundai Accent 2000 overheating

If the water bubbles in the resevoir when the engine is running, the head gasket could be blown. There is often white smoke (steam) coming from the exhaust.
