Re: car overheating AGAIN!!!!

over heating, i would say get your thromostat, water pump and all the parts that cool your engine checked out. That is what is supposed to keep the car FROM over heating.

Re: car overheating AGAIN!!!!

What have you fixed so far? What are you doing to keep the car cool? Is it the same problem each time?

If you are losing coolant then I would first start checking all your connections and fittings. Go through the whole cooling systems. First start at the radiator cap make sure it is on correctly and you have the correct one on. Give a good overlook on the radiator, make sure it's in decent conditions, there are plenty of open fins. Check all your hoses and make sure they are not dried out or cracking. Check the thermostat it could be faulty or not installed correctly. Check the coolant overfill and all its connections. Check the water pump.

Well glad to hear you figured it out. More than likely the stress from the previous overheating issues caused the intake to become weak and was just a ticking time bomb.
