2003 Pontiac Aztek: an intermittent overheating problem

Customer Question

Have an intermittent overheating problem with my 2003 Pontiac Aztek. I have replaced the intake manifold gasket three months ago. Along with that I changed the thermostat. I notice no leaking. I have also changed the heat sensor.

This is usually caused by bad head gaskets or a cracked head, these are the first signs and they usually get worse as time goes on. This is very common on this engine.
