I Just Had the Head Gasket in My Kia Replaced--Why Is It Still Overheating? Find Out in Olympia

Find out why your KIA overheats after a head gasket replacement

If your engine had had its head gasket (or gaskets) replaced, there should be no more overheating problems caused by the gasket. However, it's possible that your engine may still run hot--and this means that the cooling system is likely to blame. However, you'll be relieved to find that fixing cooling system problems will be faster and less expensive than replacing a head gasket.

What Problems With the Cooling System Can Cause Overheating?

When a trained technician replaces a head gasket, they will generally check the entire cooling system, since a blown head gasket can compromise other systems. It's very rare for an engine that's had a head gasket replacement performed at a reputable shop to begin overheating again. That's why we always recommend that you have factory-certified technicians do work on your Kia. If you've been told by an unauthorized repair center that the head gasket is the cause of overheating, it can even be helpful to simply get a second opinion from an authorized Kia dealership before you have the service performed.
