Hi its better to check your water pump where the hoses are.I think its not working properly and make sure you use the correct coolant fluids.

I'm not familiar with this bike but it sounds like it could be air locked and causing it to overheat.I found the best way to remedy problems like this is to get it up to temp,shut off and lay bike down too one side then the other.Tilt forward then back,check to see if coolant level dropped.If that dont work pull a vaccum on cooling system and see if it holds when warm.

Several possibilities..wrong gasket, maybe installed incorrectly, head bolts maybe stretched or not at correct torque, possibly the block deck wasn't cleaned properly, or the heads could be warped or cracked from the overheating.

Was making steam did head work new still have the same problem 1994 toyota 2.4

Obviously the engine is overheating.
Could be a struck thermostat --- that would show up within about 5-10 mins. of running in the driveway in neutral. You did put a new thermostat with the head work ? Did you bleed out the cooling system when filling????.
Or is it steaming when driving under load.????
If that is the case than you may have a compleatly plugged up radiator--- which would have to be replaced.

99 Firebird still overheating after repairs and antifreeze

overheating is most likely a bad thermostat, but the coolant loss is a second big concern. Does the exhaust look like steam? You could have a cracked block and the coolant is leaking into the engine. Also check the oil for contamination.

What causes 1991 toyota camry to over heat? we put a new radiator in it last year cause the radiator got cracked. but it didnt start overheating til this year. so we changed the thermostat thinking it...

Change the radiator cap, it may be the wrong pressure rating which will cause the coolant to boil at a much lower temperature than designed.

Car overheated, radiator has hole in it. Clicking sound when engine is on and I have pressure tested the head and the gasket seems to not be blown. Smoke is also coming out of tailpipe when engine is...

you could have a broken cylinder head are loosing water thru the engine pistons that is why you have smoke on tail pipe when engine is running.

our simple test if you have a blown gasket is to fill the radiator up to the rim and then be carefull, do not stay in front of the radiator then ask someone to start your engine and watch the water in the radiator, if the water rushes outside the mouth of the radiator, then you have a blown gasket.

if not, then put the gasket cover and run the engine for 20 mins and watch the temp gauge, it should not over heat.

tnx for using fixya,
