Fixed title. There are quite a few threads on overheating and the 4.2, I'm sure someone will chime in but you could do a search as well.

Just to add, there are degrees of overheating, some will result in damage, others are survivable, what is your description of your overheating event?

Noticed it straight away butt had to nurse it for about 10km ..it was pressurizing and pumping water out the over flow .. we topped it up while it was running didn't shut it down butt wen topping up after about 5l it started to spout water out of the radiator top up spout ... so I'm guessing the head gasket has blown ...also I'm thinking the thermostat has been takin out ..... going to pull the head off next couple of days cheers
