It depends on how hot it got. You need to get an accomplished mechanic to checkit out.


You can check for compresson by removing your plugs one at at time checking for compresson by letting someone turn the key while you check for compresson, if your compression are weak you might need to remove everything from the top, from intake manifolds, to head gaskets, then from the bottom you need to remove the oil pan and the muffler assembly, once the top and bottom are removed you can remove your pistons from under by pushing it upward, you will have to unbolt some nuts from the connecting rods to push out the pistons, once pistons are out check for wear and scratches on the pistons and cylinders, replace piston rings and reassemble back to how it was removed.

Car over heated and cut off now it wont start how can you fix this problem?

Run a compression test. If compression is down in several cylinders you've probably warped a head. That's a common problem after an engine has overheated, that's why it's so essential that you NEVER allow an engine to run out of coolant, and you should watch the temperature indicator. If an engine dies from being overheated you've probably blown a head gasket.

How do i know if my 1997 Mercury sable 3.0 jumped time?

Your kia overheated now oil is brown can you flush it out?

Oil yes. Sludge from overheating maybe not. Might be able to run some engine oil flush through the oil system and see if it cleans it out. Don't drive the car with it in the engine and change the oil twice after you drain it all out to be sure you get all of the kerosene out. Otherwise, you will end up with a locked up, overheated engine.

If the pump is working properly it is very hard to hear it run.

It will run for a few seconds and then shut down which is normal. It will only continue to run when the engine is started.

If a 1976 Chevy Blazer with a 454 overheated due to the fan belt snapping now it will not start what could be some possible problems?

If it won't even turn over, then I would suspect your nonstock engine got severely overheated and warped or welded something important. Engine's gotta come out. If it turns over slowly, maybe the battery got run down because the alternator wasn't turning and therefore not charging.
