My 99 Pontiac Montana Keeps running Hot.I replace the thermostat , Coolant Sensor..Is It possible that the water pump Is Bad?

The radiator may be plugged or the head gasket can let compression gasses into the radiator . To check, run the engine without the radiator cap and look in to see if there any bubbles in the coolant. If there is a lot of coolant moving in the radiator after the T/stat has opened, the water pump is ok. If not then suspect the water pump is not circulating enough water.

My 2000 Jeep G Cherokee, 4.0L, 2wd ran hot during the drive clattered a little but did not shut off...after getting it home I discovered that the coolant bottle cap had been blown off and there...

The water will keep blowing out this it common on this motor the cylinders compression pushes air into water jacket forcing it back out most likely it is gasket or warped head but there is a reason for this weather it water pump thermostat or cracked radiator

How do I check to see if the water pump is working on a 1991 Ford Bronco?

  1. Open the car hood and locate the thermostat on the top of the radiator lid. Pull the thermostat and start the car. Watch the temperature gauge carefully. If the water pump is working properly, the engine should take a long time to warm up (if it ever does). With the thermostat removed, the coolant should circulate continuously, making it harder for the engine to warm up. If you cannot tell if the car is heating up slow or not, move to Step 2.
  2. Turn the car off and locate the water pump and the water pump drive belt in the engine compartment. Use the wrench set to loosen the belt retaining bolt and pull the belt off of the pump. Spin the belt drive with your hands to see if it rolls smoothly and to determine if there is any movement or "play" in the driveshaft. If the pump seems in good working order, replace the belt, tighten the retaining screw back up, and move on to Step
  3. Locate the coolant drain plug on the bottom of the radiator and use the wrench set to remove it. Allow all of the coolant to drain out into a container and dispose of it. Replace the drain plug in the bottom of the radiator and then pour coolant into the radiator. Start the car up and watch the level of coolant carefully. If the water pump is working properly, the coolant level should drop quickly as the pump circulates coolant to other areas of the engine. Fill the radiator back up with coolant and watch it to drop again. If the coolant drops then your water pump is fine, however if the coolant drops very slowly or not at all it may be time for a new pump.

I have a 1999 mk4 golf 1.8 gti. i get no hot air blowing in and the engine temp rises alot when i go above 60mph

Low coolant level, failed thermostat, blocked radiator core or failed pump are all possible causes. Check them in the order given in the list as they become more complex and expensive to fix. Coolant level is easy enough to check, if low just top up at the reservoir. Whilst doing this check that the relief valve in the cap is OK and that the filler cap sits tightly when screwed down. For the thermostat drain the coolant (should be a bled valve for this purpose towards bottom of radiator) into a bucket and remove the 'stat housing and put the 'stat in a pan of simmering water. The 'stat plate should open up about 5mm. Take the pan from the heat and add cold water and the 'stat should close after about a quarter volume of cold water has been added. If the 'stat fails to open or close then replace it. Whilst the system is drained of coolant remove the top and bottom rubber hoses from the radiator. With a hose flush water into the top radiator opening and check if water exits freely from the bottom of the radiator. If there is a sign of blockage put the hose in the bottom opening and put the water on full pressure to back flush the radiator. Keep doing this until the water is clear. If everything up until now has been fine the last thing to look at is the water pump, either the pump has seized or there is a fault with impeller. When refilling the coolant system after any repair make sure that the interior heater is on maximum. When warming the engine up keep the heat on maximum and this will help displace air trapped in the system. Whilst warming up squeeze the radiator hoses regularly again to keep bubbles moving towards the reservoir filler. Keep the reservoir topped up as air bubbles work their way out. Only when the engine is nearly at running temperature tighten the filler cap. After having driven the car, let it cool off and check the coolant level, again top up as necessary.

1995 toyota avalon, overheating,just changed s/belt compressor stop working, now it runs hot. is this now a prblm with water pump or first thermostat?

I do not see a good connection between the serpentine belt and the engine overheating suddenly.

Perhaps you have a lot of burnt belt rubber on the water pump pulley?

Is the upper radiator hose hot? If so the stat is opening. If you start the car cold with the radiator cap off you can watch for coolant starting to flow and make sure the stat works...if the flow is low you have either a blocked stat or poor belt grip at the waterpump. Have you flushed the radiator recently? After 15+ years your car could be ready for a cleaning.

My car is overheating and i need to know how to put in the water pump?

Is the water pump leaking coolant? If not, then why do you think it's bad?

If the engine is overheating, there are several other things to look at before you consider the replacing the water pump.

Are the fans electric motor driven, or fan belt driven? If fan belt driven, replace the fan clutch. If electric motor driven, check the fan control module and/or fan motors to make sure all is good there. Fan control module tend to fail in weird ways, so if nothing is wrong with the motors, replace the module.

Always, always, replace a thermostat that has overheated. Once overheated, they consistently fail. Make sure you properly refill the radiator with coolant after the stat is changed.

Check that the bottom radiator hose does not collapse.

Check the radiator for corrosion. Boil the radiator out, or have it done, or replace the radiator.

Check the radiator and make sure that it is full of water. It can fool you sometimes after you made the repairs, and there could have been an air bubble in the system somewhere, and while you thought there was plenty of coolant, there may not have been.

Always keep the radiator cap off the radiator while filling after a repair like this until you know the stat has opened. You will know it has opened when the water level drops, or you feel warm water entering the radiator. Then replace the cap and fill the reservoir.

If you have gotten the stat hot, then I suggest replacing again as they usually fail closed, particularly when over heated.

If the belt is turning the water pump, then it doesn't need to be replaced.
