Overheated. Why won't it start?


I'm not really familiar with JEEP mechanics but if you've replaced your water pump and it's still overheating with full water/coolant level, you should check the thermostat; when it fails, it's a common cause or overheating in all kind of cars

What could cause my car to over heat when I replaced my water pump and thermostat


Hello Martin, I have seen someone install a thermostat upside down . This causes the thermostat to not open . Was the engine overheating before you replaced the water pump and thermostat ? If the engine has been excessively overheated, this could cause a blown head gasket .

Before you replace the water pump, take a look at the thermostat. In fact, just for a test, take it out. and run without one. The worst thing that will happen is the engine will run a little cool and use more fuel in the first few miles as a result, but if this happens, you can be fairly certain you have a faulty thermostat. It may even be that when you expose the thermostat you see some debris restricting the water flow.

Water pumps usually need replacing because they leak, rather than because they are not pumping water. I would consider that as a very last resort

New water pump' thermostat,purge line. not heads or gaskets and still running hot


You say "Water pump thermostat" do you mean Thermostat or water pump? If you replaced the thermostat and still have an overheating problem then look at the water pump itself as the problem if that is replaced and you still have the problem then you have another problem in the engine or a clogged radiator core. You may have a lubrication problem in the motor, if the oil pump went out or your low on oil then the engine may be overheating from lack of lubrication. Another thing that will cause overheating is if the Fan is Electric and not activating or if the radiator fan is mechanical the clutch is not allowing the fan to rotate free when you are driving.
