1985 Chevy Camaro V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic
My car overheated when my thermostat gasket started leaking. It wasn't a large leak. I replaced the thermostat gasket and the thermostat. Then a couple of weeks later I noticed a small leak from the gasket again. I added coolant and got it back to my house where it started leaking from the lower hose where it connected to the radiator. I replaced the hose and the gasket again. I only drove it for about 15 minutes before it started to piss fluid everywhere and smoke even came in through my steering column. I pulled over and it was one of my hoses from the heater core had burst and was shooting out fluid (don't know whether it was intake or output). I lost alot of fluid and I don't think it was coming out anywhere else, but there was alot of fluid all over the engine.
I started off thinking the first overheat was due to the slow loss of fluid from the first instance. But after all this I am trying to think of what an underlying cause would be to make the gasket leak in the first place.
have the same problem?
