Could be that the radiator cap is bad. You should take it to an auto parts store and have it checked to see if it is working right. If it is you could have air in the system which will need bled out. My 3.3L had a bleeder valve on the thermostat housing. Good Luck.

Oveheating after replace waterpump

Did they replace the thermostat? If so check to make sure that nothing is plugging the radiator or heater core?

I replaced my waterpump and all gaskets in the housing. now the temp gauge on the DIC jumps high and low then dissappears and my service light came on...whats the deal?

once you have changed the water pump you refill the radiator to the neck and and run the car with the fan on and wait till the themostat will know this because the antifreeze level in the radiator will drop,let run and refill radiator and replace the cap.fill the overflow bottle to the full mark. on some models you have a bleeder on top of the engine to bleed the system. i would also pressure test the radiator cap or replace it as this is not exspensive but a vital part.

Overheating, changed waterpump new themostat put anti-freeze, leaks out don't know where it goes. It's not on the ground. Help!

chances are you blew your headgasket, an when the antifreeze flows through the internals of the engine it leaks into the cylinders an burns up on the combustion stroke, unfortunatly this is most the time a costly fix

First check that the thermostat was installed correctly. It will not work properly if it was installed upside down. If this is the original radiator, it most likely is plugged up with deposits and corrosion. It needs to be replaced with a new one.

1997 jag xk8 overheated, replaced thermastat and Waterpump still overheating?

Last year my car suddenly overheated while idling to the point the coolant tank exploded. I took it to a foreign car repair shop where they replaced the coolant tank and put in another thermostat. It didn't make it home before it overheated again. I took it to the Jag dealership where they felt that my hoses had expanded to much during the overheat so they replaced all of my hoses to a tune of $1000. Three months later it overheated again. I took it to another foreign car repair shop where they discovered the real culprit. An impeller had broken off of my waterpump, I had a blockage in my radiator, and I had a short in one of the coolant fans that made it only work part of the time. So about $2400 later my car has been coolant issue free for about 2 years now. Good luck and I hope this helps.

1st do you loose water from the header tank or water dripping anywhere under car when stopped yes or no if yes to loss of water from h/tank then the problem is you have a Head Gasket blowing compression into the water jacket next to the cylinder,and its only small now but will get worse very soon, so get the Head removed and cracked tested and Head surface ground .

Car is running hot. Just got new hose put on and radiator flushed and themostat. What is the problem?

Check the availability of morte than one thermostat for your engine. You may have the wrong one in and it's not opening at the lowest setting. Causing the engine to overheat before it will allow the coolant to circulate properly. The other answer lies within the efficiency of your waterpump.

Did you bleed the cooling system after refilling the radiator ? to bleed the system, fill the radiator with water and coolant. Run the engine until it is at a good temperature. Then turn off the engine and look for a bleeding screw at the oulet of the thermostat housing and turn it with a screwdriver counterclock wise. The trapped air will go out and coolant will start coming out. refill the radiator and repeat until only coolant comes out and no careful not to burn yourself.
