steelsoldiers Posted January 27, 2004 Report Share Posted January 27, 2004 Hi Guys, This is my first post on the new board. It's really nice! The good news is I FINALLY got my oil life light reset, woo-hoo! I'm an idiot, I was holding down the wrong buttons The bad news is I am still having an overheat and heater problem. I replaced my thermostat, topped off my fluid levels, checked my fluids to be sure it's 50/50, but still no dice. I was talking to my brother about the problem and he suggested that I might have a head gasket going out and I think he might be right. My Dad was driving the car before me and he had a heater hose blow on him on the interstate. He pulled over pretty quick, but it still may have been an opportunity for an quick overheat that may have damaged the head gasket or warped a head. The other thing that worries me is when I shut the car off after one of the overheat episodes, you can really hear it bubbling back into the overflow tank. Well, right after one such episode I pooped the hood, pulled off the overflow cap and looked down in the tank. There didn't seem to be any coolant coming in, just air bubbles. They smelled a lot like exhaust gas too! Have any of you guys blown a head gasket or pinholed a cylinder and had syptoms like these? I must not be too bad because it doesn't happen all the time every time. Any thoughts? Thanks. Chris Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
