My 2002 Sebring 2.7 L engine overheats resulting in coolant boiling up into reservoir and it overflows. Cooling system was bled as well as fryon replaced in A/C to no avail. Approx. 300 km later, same problem. Had car towed to dealer whose exhaustive diagnosis suggests probable cause is engine blows compression into the coolant system resulting in overheating. Expensive repair job would involve cylinder gasket replacement as well gasket heads being worked on? Are there any alternative solut


Not knowing what the dealer did to diagnose your problem, the first thing that comes to mind is a clogged/defective thermostat. When coolant backs up into the reservoir, it's an indication of a blockage and that blockage is typically the thermostat. ... 2002 Chrysler Sebring

Intermittent overheating 2005 subaru impreza 2.5 rx ----dealer unable to replicate problem. Ideas?? i have a similar type problem, i had just had the head gasket replaced on my 2002 2.5rs, a month later the engine overheated and left me stranded, let the car cool and drove it home with out an overheat problem, had the radiator checked and no leaks or abnormal flow everything is normal with the radiator, replaced the thermostat and yes i put it in the correct way, filled the system up and burped


You have blown another head gasket. Oil won't get into the coolant, or coolant into the oil, but after the engine warms up exhaust gas will force it's way into the water jacket and stop coolant from flowing through. The best part is that it will be i ... 2002 Subaru Impreza

I have a 2005 Suzuki Verona and the check engine light has been on constantly for the past 4-5 months. I have taken it back to the dealer because it was still under warranty they have repaired and replaced minor things based on the diagnostic test and the codes and the light still stays on. The last codes revealed that the compression in the heads was low resulting in possible engine problems and the car is running very rough. Has anyone else complained of this issue?

Is a compression test a conclusive way to check for a leaking head gasket? My 99 honda civic (D16Y7) Is losing coolant and ruining radiator caps from the coolant obviously getting too hot. I did a compression test on each cylinder, as well as a pressure test with each cylinder TDC with 180psi for approximately 1 minute with the engine at running temp. At the same time i had a cooling system pressure tester on with 25psi...there was no loss of pressure in any of the cylenders or cooling system,

Engine overheating I have problem with mazda 323F, engine is overheating, I changed head gasket, but it is stil overheating, water pump is OK, and everything in cooling system except radiator that is not complete, but I dont think that is proble because before it was the same. everything started whem the engine pullled up some dirty from fuel tank. And I repaired that problem and I was driving my mazda for 500 km and it was started overheating, I changed geat gasket twice but..still overheating.


All i can think of is the thermostat is not opening. or you may have a clog somewhere preventing the flow. Check the T-stat and hoses and radiator ( for clogs) Good luck ... 1990 Mazda 323

Jetta continues to overheat despite changing the water pump, 2 thermostats, radiator, and coolant temp sensor. Seems as if the coolant is not circulating at all through the system. Radiator continues to stay cool as well. The only other problem I could think of is the head gasket, but there doesn't seem to be water in the oil. I know that water doesn't have to be in the oil in order for the gasket to fail, but what do you think the problem might be? Is it possible that a blown head gasket can pu


Seems like you have done the right things. i have repaired cars with same problems and it is the head gasket..the ones I worked on did not have any water in the oil but when I pulled the head off the gasket was blown. Let me know if that helps ... 1997 Volkswagen Jetta

What could cause my 2002 BMW 330i to continue to run hot after replacing the cooling system, bleeding the system of air and chekcing for a head gasket problem.

I started the engine after it ran hot and it sit dead center for about 5 minutes before it started to climb again.


Check to see if the engine is truly hot. next time with the motor running find the upper radiater hose and gently place your hand on it. if its cool or just warm to the touch your heat senser is probable the problem. if its hot and hard like its unde ... 2004 BMW 3 Series

My 1995 Civic LX keeps overheating consistently. I thought it may be the head gasket, so i very carefully replaced it. Engine runs strong.

Car keeps overheating. we got new radiator cap from the dealer, still too hot. Then we changed water pump and flushed system, still too hot. Then we called cadillac and spoke with service who told us it was probably head gasket and to do compression test on all cylinders, all cylinders tested good and held. So then we tried K&N Nanotechnology head gasket repair, still same problem. What else could it be?

I have 2005 MPV with electrical problems. It started out with the cooling fans sounding like jet engines. They run all the time and rev up and down. The head lights and interior lights will also flicker from time to time. It seems as though they don't have a steady flow of electricity. Could this possibly be a bad regulator, if so, where is it?


Very possible! The regulator is built onto the altenator. ... Mazda MPV

Heater will blow hot until I start driving. My heater is currently blowing hot and strong until I start driving. I have replaced my water pump, thermostat, and have had the cooling system cleaned and checked for any possible problems with coolant flow. It will start blowing hot again if I sit idol for 5-10 mins or rev engine for a few moments.

Why does my engine not reach normal operating temperature, too cool, temp gauge is about 1/4, 1/2 is normal, with lower engine temp the heater takes longer to warm the car. Could the problem be the thermostat or a problem with the heater core? the car is a 2001 Volvo V70 (5 Cylinder) with 96,000 miles. No previous problems with cooling system.


I suspect you are right with the thermostat angle.The new thermostats are the opposite to the old ones that used to cook the motor when they failed.The new ones run too cold in case of failure and also up the fuel consumption becaus ... 2001 Volvo V70

Installed a stroker kit on a 351c engine. Seems to have good compression but smokes when slightly hot. Oil in tailpipe. Just did valve stem seals. Engine has always run right at the edge of the operating temp so thats nothing new. Did a compression with the engine heated up to where it is having problems. It was lower than normal. As the engine cooled compression returned to normal and had less than 5% difference from top to bottom. I think it has to do with the difference in heat expans


Not really sure about the 5% variance unless you measured cylinder bore. The problem could be in the ring material which could be yet a third metal. Every metal has its own expansion rate. Perhaps the rings were okay for the diameter of the bore, b ... Mercury Cougar

Overheated motor I had replaced piston rings and piston bearings and had the head skimmed and valves seated after over heating but the problem is when the engine is cooled down, the radiator hoses sqeeze closed as if there is a vacuum in the radiator. The temperature is normal on short distance and the starting is no problem although I lose about 100 - 200ml of radiator water.The engine had no piston ridge so was not needed to rebore. could the block or head be cracked as this was not checked?
