I have done the following so far:
-Intake manifold gasket
-thermostat (twice) also ran it without thermo, still overhearts
-Water pump (was leaking)
-Heater core bypass valve (was leaking)
-Radiator cap (twice. Not sure if the first replacement was defective or if my overheating broke it)
Burped the system (front end jacked) after each replacement. Latest time I burped for 1 1/2 hours.
Here is exactly what is happening (from a cold start)
Takes about 10(ish) minutes at idle to warm up to 200 (thermo is a 195) at which point the thermostat opens. If the radiator cap is on, it will continue to overheat to redline. If the radiator cap is off, it will not go past about 220-230 mark.
no bubbles in the radiator
MINIMAL white smoke (some other guy said he saw it, I barely saw anything.
MINIMAL water coming out of the exhaust, seems normal as far as im concerned.
IM NOT A MECHANIC, totally possible I messed it all up.
have the same problem?
