head gaskets

  1. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Just bought my 05 xt ,150k on the odo, for dirt cheap, PO said he changed everything except head gaskets and it's still overheating. On test drive it over heated within 10 minutes of driving.

    I'll start off by saying this XT was my late son's car...it's mine now. My son loved this car, we found it together and in 2016...the idea was to use it to get through College and into his career...hopefully by then he'd be able to afford to replace it, he passed way Dec 18, 2019. Took his car...
