Question about Hyundai Getz
I have a Hyundai Getz 2005. There is no temperature gauge on this model - a light comes on when the engine is overheated, so no warning. How can I test whether the water pump is working please.
Remove the radiator cap when cold and run the car if the water gets warm this means that the thermostat is working and the water pump is circulating the water, if the lite still comes on it could be a faulty sender unit, just trace the wire and replace the sender unit not costly at all.

Your heater core more than likely needs to be replaced unfortunately. If the engine is heating properly and there are no freeze plugs that have been popped then that is your most likely problem.

SOURCE: overheating again
The heater stopped working because there was no coolant in it. Your real question is where is the water going.
Have the cooling system pressure tested to be sure you have no leaks. You said you had the radiator flushed, I suspect some of the tubes are blocked, it should be dissassembled and rodded then cooked out. Not just flushed. You problem is in traffic, low speed. The car starts to over heat, it blows the water out of the overflow, the level is down, the heater stops working, then you are out of water in the engine and overheating.
BTW ground the wire that goes to the warning light sensor and be sure it lights the warning light. If htis is the case the sensor is bad. I assume when you turn the key on but before starting the light does work then, correct? That means the bulb is ok, that does not check the sensor.

SOURCE: engine overheating
My jeep does similar thing when i am sitting in traffic. Found out that my electric cooling fan is not coming on when it is supposed too. It will kick-on when the engine is cold and when i turn on the ac. but when engine is warm, won't come on no matter what. I am looking into solving this now..
