    Are you sure the problem is the water pump? How do you know? Overheating can be caused by more than just that.

Does anybody have a video link on how to flush the cooling system on a GM 3.1L SFI OHV 6cyl motor? I need a vid for this particular motor cause mine is still overheating & i have looked everywhere.


flushing a cooling system is the same method as any other motor

do it without the thermostat fitted
or water pump opening

sacrifice an old radiator hose to adapt a garden hose fitting
for radiator flush

air in system fix
your thermostat housing has no air bleed valve
no top radiator cap

old school way
heater on full
run motor till thermostats fully open
burp radiator hoses
wait till water is running up into over flow bottle without bubble
replace cap
turn off heater
correct level in over flow bottle

why still over heating
you fitted everything i would have ... yet still overheat
possibles
leaking inlet manifold gaskets
hose clamps loose
cooling fans spinning too slow
thermostatic fan switch faulty
aluminum radiator is a big one
air ..fins bent or some water channels blocked

or possible head gasket leak

Leaking, overheating --- *fixed* then puff of white smoke 1 week later


I'm not taking sides in this. So what I am going to say is more or less neutral.
There is a big possibility you damaged the head gasket when the engine overheated last week. The dealership would have no way of knowing this if it was not yet leaking into the engine when they replaced the water pump.
Once the water pump leak was fixed, the system would be running under normal pressure which could finish off the weak head gasket.
You can not see a damaged head gasket without removing the cylinder head. And you have two heads with two gaskets.
So, IF the head gasket is now blown there is a good chance they did not know it last week. It could also be a cracked cyl head or leaking intake manifold gasket. Or all of the above.

it was the water pump. they replaced the water pump and now it runs ok... but from what i hear it could only be 4 things... thermostat, water pump, or head gasket, or your car may not really be over heating and has a bad sensor...this is a problem where it will be easy for a mechanic to take advantage of a customer. they claim it was the water pump but i think it was the sensor. they charged me $360. i felt like i got robbed because the pump only cost like $60 and i had someone who would have done it for $80. now im having problems with my assing gear. i cannot floor this thing for nothing but it picks up when i let off of the gas.

Overheating


Hi,
If the car is overheating it could be due to a thermostat which is stuck in the closed position, a failed water pump or just a slack belt driving it. I think there will be a "little" tube carrying coolant from the engine to the coolant expansion tank, and if you run the engine with the filler cap removed you should see water coming through that pipe IF the rump is running. A failed water pump will not necessarily leak, it just won't pump the water round the engine.

Always take care when dealing with a pressurised cooling system on an overheating engine - the water may well be above boiling point.

If you run the engine without coolant the cylinder head may well warp and repair bill will be huge.

Hope this helps you a bit. D
