My car is overheating and there is alot of pressure in the system causing
the resevior to overflow at time. I don't think it's the thermostat cuz I
just changed it and it did it again. I just got the car. And they said
they flushed the radiator, but I did it again anyway and a little bit of
white slimy stuff came out, and the radiator drain was clogged so i had to
put a lot of pressure in to get it to drain. any ideas?
Is the car actually overheating? Or does it just blow cooland into the bottle
overflow it? If the new cap doesn't help, then does the upper rad hose get hot
the engine is up to operating temp? If not, the "new" thermostat is bad. If the
hose is hot, you may have exhaust pressure entering the cooling systen (head
Good luck, Tom Adkins
