Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado
We changed the waterpump because it over leaking, and then changed the thermostat and now its overheating and don't know why
If you are not getting heat now, it's because you have an air lock in the system. sometimes it can be difficult to burp the system. try turning the heater on high in the defrost position. run your vehicle with the rad cap off and keep the engine running at about 1500 rpm. That should give the waterpump enough momentom to purge the air through the engine. check around the heater hose area and around the thermostat area for any bleeder screws ( sometimes these vehicles will have 2 or 3 for ease of purging the air). hope this helps and if you need any other info please don't hesitate to write.
