Hello.

It sounds to me like you needed to have your coolant level senor changed. If you didn't get this changed then thats your first stop, this is a common problem.

Water is boiling from the resevoir and just changed the water pump but temp gauge doesnt move it stays at cold cold


Check that you haven't pulled the wire to the temp sender off during the work on the pump. You say the water is boiling in the resevoir but I have to ask is it hot or bubbling like air blowing through it.. Have you put the cap back on the radiator correctly. When refilling the radiator did you bleed the air from the system to ensure that there were no air locks in the block

The coolant light remains on even after the radiator has been replace


have you checked the plug in at the coolant resevoir? if good, have you checked the fuse panel for blown fuses? low coolant light comes on because the sensor n the coolant resevoir tells the computer says there is not enough fluid in your resevior, the clear tank under the hood that connects to the radiator. you may have a bad plug in or a bad resevoir. i suggest you check fluid,,if good ,,check plug in,, if good,,replace resevoir,, hope this helps!!

The car keep overheating, there is water in the radiator and the resevior tank 2000 jeep grand cherokee i check the oil their is no water found in the oil the water from both unit stays full


Sounds like your thermostat is stuck closed. Shouldn't be more than a $20 part from autozone and is simple to replace. Follow your top radiator hose to the motor and it will connect to your thermostat housing. Disconnect the hose (antifreeze will run out) unbolt the housing, and replace the old thermostat. Refill radiator and bleed the system.

My dashboard wiper water lights comes on when i switch on the parking lights


the winshield wiper water resevoir has a level indicator in the lower portion on the plastic container, and if the fluid is below the sensor turns on the light on the dash. Solution: keep the resevior filled about the sensor, and light will stay out.

Engine coolant


you need maybe 1+1/2 gallon of distilled water;NOT TAP WATER and 1 gallon of Mazda Coolant; NOT 50/50 mix..

((WHEN THE ENGINE/COOLANT IS COOL>>VERY IMPORTANT!!!))

1.from the radiator, remove the drain plug, let it drain. for faster drain, also remove the resevoir cap.

2.when empty, put drain plug back on refill the resevior with the distilled water until full.

3.with the resevior cap off start engine with heat settings on Hi, until the coolant temp guage begin to rise or when thermostat opens. turn off engine.

4. repeat steps 1-3 until only clear water drains.

5.make sure drain plug is in, refill resevior with Mazda coolant til about half way (in case there's any expansion), do not put cap on yet, let the air bleed. start engine, let it run for 5 min.

6. accelerate in park/neutral to 2500RPM's (DO NOT drive yet) to help bleed the air keep an eye on coolant level because you will have to top it off.

7.check level as temp reaches normal; half point as usual. put resevior cap on drive around the block and check level again. make sure coolant is on the proper level; "F" or "MAX"...of course when the engine cools it will be below, but while the temp is normal it should be on the proper level.

The 6 cylinder coupling uses 3 bolts to hold the fanblade on.
The 4 cylinder uses 4 bolts.
If you are using a 4 bolt coupling, you have the right one. Check
to see if you haven't maybe put the fanblade on back to front.
Hope this helps you
