Over heat after replace themsta 2 months

If the t/stat fails in the closed position an overheat will result. I have had a brand new one fail a week after I put it it. Rare but does happen. Have you checked the rad hose, is it warm, hot, or cold during the overheat condition? Is the coolant actually flowing through the system? When its cold (after sitting overnight) remove the rad cap, look at the fluid level...normal? If so start the car and let it run with the cap off..feel the rad hose soon as it starts to get hot look in the rad (be careful if your system has a vapor lock it may spit the air out, best to have a face shield on just in case!) the coolant flowing? It should start flowing at some point. If not the t/stat is stuck closed or the water pump is broken/seized.

I have a 1992 Buick regal that overheats at speeds of 40 mile n hour it has a new radiator, thermos stat, has been flushed an filled and bled have not changed the water pump when it overheats all of m

It is more than likely your water pump. Can you run it in park with the radiator cap off. The cap on the radiator not the overflow tank. When the temp opens the thermostat you should see flow if the pump is good no flow it is probably bad. If you don't see flow check the upper hose for temp and the lower hose. If the upper line is barely warm and the lower hose is significantly hotter, it is either water pump or thermostat, but since you replaced the thermostat I would be back to water pump. BTW you should use either a contact thermometer or an infrared to check hoses, although it was done by hand in the old days.

Waterpump not working?

Have you tested the thermostat yet? Are you "sure" it's working? That engine is NOT known for having water pump impellers going bad at all. I would believe a bad t-stat before a bad water pump. In my enperience if it's now flowing water, start there. If you can, take the t-stat out and put it in a pot of boiling water on the stove. Use a meat thermoneter, or even a cany thermometer and check the water temp. the T-stat should open up on it's own, even without water flow between 195 and 210 degrees. If it isn't, there's your problem. Start there, ESPECIALY if you "just put in a new T-stat." I've had FOUR bad t-stats brand new out of the box from 3 different suppliers in 15 days at my shop. I'm testing them before installing them now. the Stick

2004 Jeep wrangler 4.0 - 6cyl overheating

I had the same overheating problem in my jeep ! My problem was finaly found out to be the clutch in my fan its a different kind of clutch system it work as this. When your jeep gets warmer the tighter your fan clutch gets .While cool your fan moves slowly. now to test your clutch just warm up your jeep and rev it up a bit if your fan dose not pick up speed then it is sliping.What will come out of this is that you fan will the seez and run full all the time. if you jeep dose not overheat wile moving then it is not your thermo stat period.

Thermostat and heatung sensor

Follow the upper radiator hose and where it connects on the motor that housing is where the t-stat is and sensor.
