92 mx3 overheating, no heat inside car??

WHen a car overheats its alwasys one of these problems,

  • thermostat failing in the closed position.
  • the fan not working properly.
  • radiator semi clogged.
  • the water pump would cause this too but usually you will see leaking from the pump itself.
  • low coolant, but it looks like you have checked that.
