OVER HEATING

1996 Ford Thunderbird

Engine Cooling problem
1996 Ford Thunderbird V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 114000 miles

I recently changed the intake manifold gasket and was running ok until the engine started to overheat. I barely made it to the gas station and could not start it anymore. I checked the spark plugs and found sighns of water on the spark plug. Would there still be a problem with the intake manifold gasket or could there be a problem with something else? How would I know?

Hi there,

If you have water in the engine I would be checking the manifold gasket for faulty water cross over sealing or a defective or incorrect gasket. I would also have a head check done just to eliminate a head gasket problem as well.
