Hi, I have a 2002 Toyota Prado that has been overheating recently. we just had the radiator
and waterpump replaced as we thought that was the issue but that didn’t fix the issue. We then went on the replace the Thermostat and it is still Overheating.
So we assumed that maybe the head was cracked or maybe the gasket was bad so we took the head off had it pressure tested and skimmed and then replaced the gaskets for the head and all the manifolds. And it is still overheating.
We think the block might be cracked but it isn’t blowing smoke and the water isn’t leaking or mixing with the oil and the car runs fine other than it overheating. Turning on the heater cools the engine down for some reason. We are completely stuck and don’t know where to go from here if you have any advice that would be great. Thanks for the help
