Hello, my mustang manages to overheat quickly some days it dosent overheat but it still runs hot. It does have a misfire. The spark plugs and all are going to get checked but my question is can bad timing cause a misfire and will that lead to overheating?

    Not really, not directly. More likely, overheating might cause a misfire. You need to get to the root cause of the overheating first and then worry about how it runs. I'd certainly check for a failed head gasket at this point.

    It hasnt show many signs of a blown gaaket, i thunk it may be the water pump since the temp meter wont remain steady. It sat for a while so the blades may be rusted. @Mr_Shiftright
