Question about 1993 Toyota Celica

1 Answer

Replaced water pump due to bad bearing but radiator hot

The car starts to stall after about 10 minutes. The radiator is running real hot with steam coming out after warming up. Upper radiator hose is hot but lower hose is not hot. I also hear a gurgling sound in the radiator after turning the car off. It seems that coolant is not circulating correctly. The fan also does not come on. I have allready flushed the system. I'm hoping for the best (thermostat) but preparing for the worst(head gasket). Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

91 Acura legend running hot I had the


start a cold engine and let it idle . After about 10 minutes you will feel that the top radiator starts to get hot. This indicates that the thermostat is opening and allowing hot coolant through to the radiator. This means that the thermostat was replaced . Point of interest here . Water pumps no not cause over heating. They will have seal and bearing failure but other than that they never cause overheating unless they are 50 years old and rusted away at the impeller. A new pump will be shiny clean.

Why does my Grand Cherokee overheat after replacing the radiator?


there are many causes of overheating.

first off is you didnt stated engine option (size)

the engine can make excessive heat too. (late timing)

1: bad thermostat. 190 is ok, but it can be bad, even a new one.

try a quality brand like STANT, not dura . etc.

2: it must hold pressure, bad cap>? 12-15 psi

3: gee, did use 50% AF. it will not run right with out AF antifreeze.

4: bad water pump. running old AF causes the impeller to rust to nothing.

5: thermostat up side down, or bleed hole not up hill (jiggle pin,etc)

6: pressure in the hose , does NOT prove flow. only pressure.

7: air flow to RAD bocked, (at A/C condensor or between)

8: bad fan and related parts, varies by engine option not stated.

9: bad fan controls. same.

10: seem like it overheats even PARKED. right? never moved.

11: if it dont overheat moving fast this is a BIG clue. but nobody wants to take that risk of 10 is true. sure.

12: air in block, did you , ignore the side tank and look in side rad for full of AF 100% by pulling cap cold, over and over, each cold cycle

until dead sure its FULL???????

13: BAD TEMP GUAGE, DID YOU USE AN IR PYYO GUN to prove the thing is really overheating

14: is it boiling over, that is steam or hot water blasting to the expansion side tank???? signs/ got real signs of overheating?



15: passes rad leak down test?

16: passes exhaust leak test to rad test? green/blue checked?

17: steam out tail pipe end hot?

18: pinging, (too hot sighs)

19: OBD2 scan tool shows, 240 and the dash gauge and the pyro gun

all agree its 240"

20: sludge packup on sides of water jackets, seen when pump was pulled and NOT CORRECTED (flushed>?)



at the least.

ok one more , fan belts slip?

I have a 2000 nissan maxima and just recently i noticed it was running hot. so i took it to my mechanic and he advised i needed a new water pump. so he replaced the water pump and he is saying it is still...


hot engine usually due to clogged radiator or bad thermostat. Take out the thermostat and make sure it is opening fully in boiling water.
Look inside your radiator for signs of clogging. If yes, professionally flush or replace radiator.

You probably have a blown head gasket, not allowing you to get enough compression built to start the engine.

Rent a compression tester from AutoZone (You get your money back when you take it back) and use it. If the compression on each cylinder is less than 100 PSI, you've got some issues. The cylinders should also be somewhat balanced.

First Steam then Water coming out of the overflow hose of the radiator reservoir. Is this a thermostat problem or Waterpump. When water is coming out the dash thermometer is approx half way. When I remove...


Your overflow hose is at the first tier after the seal on the radiator cap. The first thing I would check is the cap gasket, then make sure the cap is completely installed, push down hard and turn until it locks into position. If your water pump was bad, you would either be leaking water from the pump, or your car would be running hot. Usually, when you have steam/water coming out the overflow, if it is not a problem with the cap, then you are indeed running hot. If the thermostat is not opening or is stuck in the closed positiion, it will not cause your radiator to overflow, however if it is sticking closed and allowing your car to overheat then opening at a higher pressure, it could happen. Check the components in this order, gasket, cap installation, then thermostat, (you can replace the thermostat for about 10 dollars. Good luck

Top radiator hose is HOT, radiator is steaming


have u replaced the radiator and hoses? Thermostat could also be stuck open. Water pump could also be your issue. with motor cool and of remove radiator cap(cap may be bad as well) top-off fluid and start car check for fluid flow with flashlight. Water pumps typically leak from what is called a weep hole when the shaft seal fails. Yours will be located under the timing cover (drivers side) running of the timing belt.
Hit me up after u have check on these.

Water pump


Fill the radiator completely with coolant mixture. Let the engine warm up 10 to 15 mins. Is the upper radiator hose warm? If yes, then the water pump and thermostat are good. If all this works, then the leak is somewhere else. Hope this helps.

Running Hot


Sounds like the water pump.Check if you see coolant or coolant residue behind the water pump pulley.
