My car started running hot about three weeks ago. Heater would work on and off. Checked water and had oil in it. Replaced intake and head gaskets. Flushed Radiator. Ran fine for day or two. Started running hot again. Heat did not work at all. Changed thermostat. It was stuck. Flushed again. no change, still running hot. Replaced water pump. No change. No oil in water, heat still not working even after new thermostat. Can idle for a while but when accelerated or tr to drive it instantly begins to run hot. Not sure what else to do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  1. This might sound strange, but I had the same problems with my van — and went though the same steps — finished up replacing the radiator and all was well– no leaks but all the fins had disintegrated around the edges where they were covered by the cowling! Wish I had done that first….
