Q: My car continuously overheats and blows the radiator cap

asked by on

I have changed the thermostat, the water pump, the fan clutch and flushed the radiator but it's still overheating. What could be the issue?

My car has 150000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

It sounds like you may have a restriction in your cooling system that is preventing the proper flow of coolant through the engine.

I would recommend having the system power flushed to remove any restrictions that may exist. The restriction is likely in the coolant passages inside the engine if the radiator and water pump have already been replaced.

If the power flush does not resolve the issue, it is possible that the engine may require an overhaul from a qualified professional in order to resolve this issue.

I would suggest having this overheating issued diagnosed by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, for an accurate repair.

Q: Head gaskets

The majority of the top end of the motor will in fact need to come apart in order to replace head gaskets. However, this would not necessarily be true for replacing only the timing belt.

Q: Engine has trouble starting

The stalling would have to be felt, since these vehicles have issues with the torque convertor lock up still engaging when stoping, causing the engine to stall. Then the engine starts and runs fine. If this is not the case...
