hello,

my car is overheating again. I at first got the reserve tank replace and my egine flush. All went well no problem. But now it is overheating again and as I press on the gas after slowing down at a stop light it jerk as I proceed on.

i put some more fluid in the tank. But for some reason it is smoking. Could it be my thermostat and why do I have a small hole in my reserve tank.

thank you so much. Please help!

The reason you have a hole in the tank is probably a defective piecein the material.

For the overheating issue I belive you have a off ignition timing and you should check it.

Is the upper radiator hose and the bottom radiator hose the same temperature if so your water pump and thermostat is good, if not then check the water pump and thermostat.
