OVERHEATING PROBLEM!

HI ALL

i need desperate help,

one day i was driving my 1992 HONDA PRELUDE H22A VTEC(98) and it overheated,
i took it to the mechanics and they said my radiator cap wasnt holding pressure
i replaced the cap and it was all good for another week
and then it happens again, all the water in the radiator was gone and the temperature gauge started to jump,
what is the problem!! any suggestions? someone said something about a head gasket? or thermostat? or clogged radiator pipes? the mechanic said there was no clog anywhere, however i did use this chemical weld at the beginning of the year due to a leakage in the radiator, and it has been running fine eversince after the failure of water pump haha. please get back to me a.s.a.p i need to get to uni 2moro !
my car keeps using up all the water in the radiator and

Re: OVERHEATING PROBLEM!

you have white smoke coming from your tailpipe? check your oil and see if you find water in there.. sounds like a headgasket issue.

Re: OVERHEATING PROBLEM!

is it an expensive thing to fix? and is it safe to drive around as long as i keep the water levels topped up? i looked up on ebay and head gaskets are no more than 30 bucks (AU) does anyone know the steps on changing a head gasket?

best bet is to have a shop or someone with automotive experience diagnose your car. Sorry its hard to diagnose a car over the internet.. as i said play it safe and have it looked at..
