    well as u got ur engine-head opened, see the valves, if they r a little weak/jammed, get them replaced in da same go.

    for heating case,
    you must consider that your block etc are properly faced otherwise gaskit wont survive long(i have suffered on ma cultus).

    dont let the mechanic put double gaskit, ask him get the surfaces faced and put single genuine gaskit. Usually mechanic dont get it properly faced and try to cover it using double gaskit

    Did the engine oil & water got mixed during this overheating of your car?

    if yes, did you drove the car in the above condition for two kilometers?

    answer the above and may be i can guess the possible damage.

    ^^if rings/pistons got some issue cause of overheating then your engine sound will change, you can hear the piston getting friction. Any mechanic can feel it easily.

    no i check the radiator water.It was without oil.One other thing is that the temperature gauge didn't go above half in overheating issue.I cant understand the temperature sensor is placed in radiator or it is engine temperature?

    temp sensor actually show the engine coolant temperature.

    can you please explain how exactly you are defining your car as overheated, like what happened?
    1. there was no water in the radiator?
    2. fan belt broke?
    3. radiator fan malfunctioned?
    4. oil pump failed?
    define the symptoms of your car before you decided to replace the gaskit.

    radiator cap wasn't fully tight.and when my car turned off coz of heat then there was no water in radiator.I pour cold water on it and try to make it cold after 10 mins of this practice it got started and I drove to my office which is around 2 km from the point where I was stuck.In evening I took car to mechanic he opened the lid and ignited the car.Looking at boiling water in radiator he put the result that gaskit has to replace.
