Angry Overheating Problems

I got a 92 sedan F22A1 that still over heats after a week of fixing. Had head gasket replaced and heads resurfaced, new radiator, water pump, thermostat, radiator cap, hoses, plugs and wires, timing belt. Worked well for a week then started to overheat again until I blew the head gasket again. Is there anything else I might have missed? Stressed

Are your fans coming on like they're supposed to?

Were you not watching your needle like a hawk the second time around?

Yeah the fans came on when they needed to. I was watching it like a hawk. The needle went up at a stop light then went down once I started going. This is what happened the first time. I can also smell like burning oil once I parked it and turn it off but not sure if it is or not,

Did you bleed the cooling system through the valve? If not I would try that.

wildBill83 seems to have made some friends!
Is your tstat installed backwards? Do you have any leaks? You might have a bad head gasket and that is the primary problem. Did you do the work? If you had a shop do it I would be taking it back.

Really sounds like a headgasket problem to me. Exhaust gasses getting in the coolant will overheat your motor in a hurry.

Always! An i mean always, reset your ecu box. I'd help my younger cousin replace his electrical problems an check engine came on. Anything to do with wires, always reset the ecu.
