I don't think a blown intake gasket would cause it to overheat, Most causes of overheating are: thermostat stuck in closed position; faulty water pump; broken fan blades; loose belt; clogged radiator; radiator cap not holding pressure; blown head gasket; low or no coolant; leaking hoses.

A 1991 Honda Accord could be overheating if the radiator has a leak. There could also be a problem with the head gasket.

It could be multiple problems. check your coolant level, it could also be your Lower intake gasket or even a head gasket.

It may not be overheating, but you could still have a coolant leak into the combustion chamber, from either a head gasket or intake manifold gasket.

If the vehicle isn't overheating then it's probably not a blown head gasket. There could be a problem with the oxygen censor.

not likely on newer models, but on older ones it could be the fuel pump. If you have that problem with a newer model it could be the head or head gasket, I just replaced intake &head gasket and installed a new head on a 2001 neon and the car started right up after having that problem.

It is possible that the gasket could leak between cylinders. The overheating and coolant loss would happen if the gasket was failing around the coolant passages.

Probably a gasket leak. Could be the intake gaskets or the thermostat gasket.

Could Be head gasket or thermostat. That's what happened to me...Could Be head gasket or thermostat. That's what happened to me...

The most common causes of overheating and shaking in a vehicle are the head gaskets. A blown head gasket will produce overheating and shaking and may lead to a cracked head.

Head Gasket failure or intake gasket Dexcool is the culprit, had to replace mine.

Could be the head gasket. Very common problem with this engine and model year Windstar.

If your sure that it is leaking around the distributor then replace the distributor gasket or O-ring. It could also be leaking oil out of the back of the intake manifold. Gasket or sealer may have moved while tighting the intake bolts. Could be coming from the oil sending unit behind the distributor too.

Could be a problem with the thermostat housing or it's gasket, could be a problem with intake manifold gaskets, could be a problem with heater hoses or the fittings that screw into the manifold.

If the engine is overheating rapidly and/or blowing oil then it could be.

It could very easily be the intake gasket. This is a common problem on almost all GM products made between the mid 1990's and 2004. The issue is that the gasket is made of cheap plastic and the constant warming and cooling of the engine causes it to crack. It can cost anywhere from $600.00 to $1200.00 to replace.

A handful of things could cause this. But I'd say one of two; Blown Headgasket or a bad intake manifold gasket. Which the engine's of these cars are known for.

if you had it heat high enough it very likely worped your heads and or damaged the head gasket

It is common for the intake manifold gasket to leak antifreeze from the corners of the intake. Need to replace intake gasket. Be sure to look closely at the intake were the gasket seals against it for pitts in the intake. There is a heater hose that goes into the intake on right rear corner in the back, but uo on top of intake. check closely.

could possibly be a overheating problem

The engine could possibly seize.

THE CAUSE COULD BE A STUCK THERMOSTAT , OR A BLOWN HEAD GASKET, OR A LEAK IN THE INTAKE MANIFOLD OR INTAKE MANIFLOD GASKET. A CRACK IN THE INTAKE MANIFOLD IS VERY COMMON.. NORTY
