Two things to consider, actually 3 but if you're not hearing anything odd from the engine and you're not seeing any fluid leaking it's not your water pump. 1. it could be your fan clutch. 2. it could be your themostat, the latter being the most likely.P.S. Don't drive too far till it's fixed!!!

The thermostat is likley stuck open. that means that you are trying to warm the water in the engine block and the radiator also. With the thermostat closed before it allows the water in the block to heat up. When it reaches the desired temp for it to open it then will allow the water from the radiator to flow to the block thus regulating the temp in the block.

Anything below 0deg, it wont start unless plugged in and batteries die quick while cranking


anytime the temp is below 40 deg you should plug a diesel in overnight. it is better for your engine. also you could try double heating before actually try starting.

Engine quits after 3 or 4 miles of driving


I would think either a bad coil, or ignition module,or fuel pump. Sometimes the big relays for these system can cause this symptom so rotate the important ones in the engine compartment. Also if yours has an ASD relay this is your main power one.

it may be your thermostat, the gauge on the dash is a dummy gauge, there is only three positions that it sees, dead cold, operating temp, and hot, so even though the needle looks fine it just means it s closer to operating temp then it is to cold,
