1998 Ford Falcon Repair Question
Ford Falcon Gas Problem
Just for your additional information (not that some of this information will matter with what is going on with the over heating but...) the oil pressure switch and 2 new headlight total assemblies were replaced within the last 6 weeks or so, this was done in order to obtain a road worthy for the above mentioned car. The car was purchased about 5 months ago...and shortly after purchasing the car it started to over heat..and that is when the thermostat housing was replaced by a mechanic while the car was still under the used car warranty. However it started to over heat again (however the dealership was giving us a hard time about fixing the car and were always trying to delay things as a result the 3 month warranty expired). As stated before the radiator then was replaced about 4 to 6 weeks ago, and at that time the hoses were all checked and all were all found to be ok, and new hose clamps were purchased and put on the hoses to make sure they were all properly secured.

first thing i would start with is a leak down test done to confirm the head gasket is still good from overheating. head gaskets are a result of overheating not a cause. the issue may have been fixed with replacement parts but the head gasket blew in the mean time.
