overheating

So my car keeps overheating. My fan isnt working. hardwired it to see if that would keep it cool and it still doesnt. But if u get on it then u can watch it drop like a fat kid falling off a building. What should i check for? Help please.

Dude... it's your headgasket!!!!! This is the culprit of all your porblems including your "not firing on all cylinders" thread. Bad headgasket means losing comrpession therefore no fire. Bad headgasket leads to oil leaks. Bad headgasket leads to coolant leaks. Bad headgasket leads to internal leak-by, once your motor reaches combustion phase, the internal leak-by will force hot gas to enter the jacket water side (the coolant side) which pretty much boils the shit out of your coolant..............

oh yeah, do not reuse those head studs/bolts. Get a new set. I would also get that head resurfaced.....

If your head is not flat, your headgasket will not seal properly even with aftermarket head studs.
