I HAVE A THAT BLEW THE TOP WATER HOSE AND OVERHEATED. AFTER TOWING IT TO THE HOUSE I NOTICED LOSS OF COMPRESSION BY TURNING THE ENGINE OVER BY HAND. ANY SUGGESTIONS.

2000 Volvo S40 • 135,000 miles

I previously overheated 2 times. The second time I replaced the thermostat. I thought it was sticking. This time the top hose split.

At this point you may have blown a head gasket from the overheating.
The thermostat may have been bad or the rad may be clogged but I would have a leak down test performed to verify.
