Intake manifold may have moved when being tightened down causing intake gasket to move and not seal. There are water passages in it . I pulled the head and the gasket had moved, replaced the gasket and this time used permaseal this fixed the leak.

Yes. Your engine will get the best mileage at full operating temperature. If the thermostat is removed or not working properly causing the engine to become too hot or not hot enough it will affect the operating efficiency or your engine which will decrease your gas mileage.

theyre maybe an air bubble in the block causing it to overheat,or it could also be a bad water pump

en the thermostat doesn't open it cant let the fluids flow into your engine causing it to overheat.

You might check the thermostat. It probably needs replaced. Often times the thermostat will either be stuck in the closed position, causing it to overheat, or in the wide open position causing the heater to blow cold. This is what happened to me. I took the thermostat out and the end was broken off. This made the spring release and be stuck in the wide open position. We were driving over a snowy pass at around 10 pm. NOT a fun trip.

Your valve timing is off The o2 sensor is not reading properly causing the system to go very lean.

Its your thermostat that needs to be replaced, its stuck closed not letting the coolent ciculate causing it to over heat and spue water out the reserve

User Avatar

No, but faulty water pump or thermostat can.

If the car is still overheating, there may be a clog in the radiator itself. Another possibility is the new water pump sucked sediment in from the radiator, causing it to have a malfunction. Lastly, the radiator fluid may be low or too old to properly cool the engine. Make sure the radiator fan is working.

By itself, the thermostat would have to be stuck closed causing a severe overheat condition to cause a loss of power.

There are a few things that could be causing your 200 BMW 528i to overheat. You may not have the correct mixture of coolant in the vehicle. The problem could also be your thermostat. Have the thermostat checked out to ensure that it is working as it should.

you probably need to flush system including heater core.AnswerSometimes the metal in the thermostat corrodes and breaks down so the stat stays open, unable to close....causing the engine to run cool at all times and reducing the efficiency of the heater. Remove it and check it. I have the same problem, I replaced thermostat twice, flushed system and replaced sensors, it did not fix problem, still searching for an answer.^^^^ To this guy, its probly your Coolant Temp. sensor.

i would have replaced water pump long before replacing radiator. also check engine oil to see if it has engine coolant mixed in.if it has then the problem is more likely to be a bad head gasket

User Avatar

no. but tightening wrong or the lip of the thermostat trapped under the housing causing un even pressure on housing sure will.

User Avatar

Have you tried replacing the o2 sensor? Perhaps the thermostat as well. My 94 has 94000 miles. My O2 sensor was bad causing the engine to run too lean......sounded like it was choking itself out. Also, my thermostat needed replaced and that too helped it run better.

Yes, it can, but it won't be running properly. Modern engines are tightly controlled by the computer that governs fuel flow. To do this, it senses a number of different things, and among them is the coolant temperature. If the temperature of the coolant is not being properly controlled by a thermostat, the computer will get readings that will cause it to deliver an incorrect fuel-air mixture to the engine, causing poor fuel mileage, excessive emissions, and poor overall operation. I strongly recommend that, if you are having cooling system problems, that you take your car to a good shop to have it diagnosed and properly repaired.

The brake pads might not be adjusted properly. The brake pads can be too tight and have contact with the rotors.

User Avatar

Most likely the thermostat spring is weak, or the thermostat is sticking, causing the thermostat to open too early and stay open too long. This will cause water to circulate to the radiator, causing the temperature of the cooling water to fall below the target temperature, and so the temp guage falls. then eventually the thermostat closes some, and the temp starts to rise again (and so on)

Your radiator might have a small pinhole in it, causing it to not build up pressure.

User Avatar

i would replace fan relay, before replacing thermostat. the relay acts as a thermostat for the fan, turning fan on and off when needed

User Avatar

I'm assuming you have the correct thermostat, but you should always double check. Some other things that may or may not be causing the problem could be: Your radiatior is clogged and the antifreeze isn't circulating properly. You may not have enough antifreeze in your radiator. You may not be getting enough airflow through your grille to the radiator. Your electric cooling fans may not be working properly. Your radiator cap isn't maintaining proper pressure. Your ignition timing could be off, but it believe it's computer controlled on your vehicle, so that shouldn't be it. Hope this helps! Good luck, and don't get frusterated, you'll be able to find it.

I'm not a mechanic but I had a problem with my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee lift gate not closing properly, seemed to move to the sound causing a noise. I replaced the lift shocks and the problem disapeared
