    With my '94 skylark, we checked the coolant level, there is no thermostat installed and it is red zoning full time now... should we replace the water pump and if so where is the little bugger located?? Also, have tried running the heater full tilt to let the heat escape that way and it doesn't help any at all.

Im trying to flush out the water system what do i have to do first?

First thing you should do is pick up a can of radiator flush and add it to the overflow tank.Drive the jeep with this cleaner in it for a couple of days and then you need to let it completely cool down,remove the rad cap and drain the rad,catching the antifreeze in a pan and dispose of it at a local garage that is authorised to dispose or recycle it.Next step is to remove a heater hose from where they go through the firewall and then remove the thermostat from the thermostat housing and the put the housing back in place.Run a garden hose into the smaller hose of the water pump to flush the engine and heater core,run water into the top of the rad to clean it out,water into the thermostat housing to flush the engine block.

Put in a new water pump and thermas stat and the gage still goes to hot

Do you have access to a non contact laser temp gauge?
If so shoot the thermostat housing and see if the gauge is correct.

If the gauge is off from the laser then replace the engine coolant temp sensor,
If the gauge is correct then double check the thermostat installation,is it in backwards? or maybe you got a bad thermostat.

did you flush the entire system when you replaced water pump?

What could make my 03 civic ex overheat and cool down then overheat again while losing heat inside??? Already replaced radiator, water pump, thermostat.... motor

your heater has apparently restricted the coolant flow....hopefully a good system back flushing will cure the problem....use a flush obtained from a parts house....I would buy the hose kit for flushing as well...good luck to you

The temp gauge on the instrument panel was

Sounds like the radiator is clogged, have the cooling system flushed, the water pump pumps water into the engine and it comes out the top hose to return to the radiator to circulate through it to cool, if the radiator is clogged the water pressure will build on the top hose, also look at the bottom radiator hose, if it collapses when you rev the engine the radiator is clogged, although sometimes the bottom hoses are reinforced with wire to prevent them from collapsing so just because they do not collapse it does not mean the radiator is not clogged.

2001 Oldsmobile Alero overheating

I think you started out looking in the right places. Replacing the coolant, thermostat, relay and sensor are all fairly inexpensive.

I believe you either have blockage in the system (especially if you're using tapwater), or your water pump may be failing.

I would first either take it to a radiator shop and have them flush the cooling system out thoroughly, or else pick up a chemical flush kit and do it yourself. This involves more than just drain and refill.

If this doesn't work, your next step will probably be replacing the water pump. At almost 200k miles, it's probably about due anyway.

Leaking around thermostat housing tube to mainfold 85 Cad El

You should be able to remove the tube without removing the water pump again. If a new tube is not availabe you can use JB weld to fill gaps and pit holes. Make sure its not the intake manifold gasket that's leaking at the corner.
