If it's leaking fluid around the water pump you have to replace the water pump. They do not last forever. The reason it's overheating is because you have losted fluid. Do not operate without filling the radiator back to normal. You can destroy the engine by overheating and warping the header !

Hey George , antifreeze wont evap leek yes, ,is it possible there is a head gasket problem letting it go out exhaust ? make sure you fill coolant system, find a clean dry place to start up car or truck worm up to operating temp then look it over ,also try reving motor to about 2000 rpm two or three timed to build pressure and move fluid around ,other thing could be a faulty waterpump.

2000 lincoln ls overheats. Changed t stat and waterpump. Boiling in driverside reservoir. Passenger reservoir look like fluids mixed. Car have heat

With engine cold remove radiator cap. Start engine and look for bubbles in cooling fluid. Bubbles mean blown head gasket.

Car was overheating replaced the thermostat now the heat isnt blowing hot and the car is over heating worse it's a mitsubishi galante

Could be that fan is not kicking on. check and make sure it is connected. could also be a vapor lock. some cars require bleeding water system and if so most bleeding screws are located around thermostat housing. Call local autozone and ask if your car requires bleeding water system....NOW the overheating could be from fan not kicking on and the best way to find out is to turn on defrost and if fan is working it will kick on automaticaly. If it does kick on then this shows that fan is working fine but this does not mean that fan is running properly.The fan is controlled by a heat sensor which kicks the fan on when motor reaches a curtain heat range. If this sensor is not working it will cause car to overheat.... Could be also that waterpump is bad.Not all waterpumps leak when they go bad.Sometimes the impeler on the waterpump which is what moves water through the system simply stops working and this would cuase it to overheat.......hope this info helps and good luck...Please rate my post and if you need more info fill free to contact me...Need to find where leak is coming from also for this is more than likely the problem........

Antifreeze boiling over when car is overheatind and Wen its not overheating changed thermostat radiator bled and flushed it changed temperature switch no oil and water mixture No smoke

Check the over flow tank located in front of the passenger side glove box for water or fluid. When driving the car, listen by the glove box to see if you car hear a boiling sound. If you can hear water boiling or moving, check your heater core to make sure it is not plugged or bad. When the car starts to over heat, does the gauge register that it is getting hot? If it doesn't then check the thermostat to make sure it is not stuck open or closed. If its over heating and the gauge is not showing that the car is running hot before boiling over, then the thermostat is defective or not working. Try replacing it again.

Well my car allways over heats and coolent leeks out of the radiator cap its not the thermostat. What can I do

If it is leaking out of the radiator cap, then that means you need a new radiator cap. Your cooling system in your car is a sealed system. Sounds like your radiator cap is not sealing properly and when the cooling system is not longer sealed then the temperatures cause the coolant to boil whereas coolant not subject to the atmosphere does not boil. Start there.

Good Luck

Termostat replacement

No special stuff for this. Remove anything in your way, remove therm housing, take out therm, scrape off ALL old gasket material. Put back together. (spring end of stat goes towards engine) Run and re-fill coolant with heater on high heat. check for leaks....That's it.
If you want to test old one, place in a pot of water and boil. therm should open at or close to # stamped on it (yours should be 195 use thermometer to thermometer is fine)

Replaced thermostat but after awhile when it has been

Did you "bleed" the air from the system after replacing the thermostat housing? On some GM vehicles, there is a brass "bolt" threaded into the housing. Some models will develop an air-lock, which prevents the fluid from filling all of the coolant cavities causing "cavitation" - which can lead to an overheat condition. If you can find the brass bolt (usually located on the thermo housing, but sometimes on the waterpump hose assembly, remove it while the engine is warming up. As soon as air bubbles cease coming out and a steady coolant flow is seen, re-insert the brass bolt.
