EXPLORER OVERHEATING

2002 Ford 500 • 200,000 miles

Our 2002 explorer is overheating. We've replaced the thermostat, the waterpump, and the radiator. My husband drove it for about 80 miles, mostly highway, then it overheated again very quickly. HELP!"

The head gasket is probably blown. Get a pressure tester. Advance Auto and Auto Zone lend them out.

Here is a walk through diagnostic for your situation. Just follow the link;
