SOURCE: overheating

Be very careful relaying on the fans as I blew a head gasket when they did not come on. Still sounds like a froze thermostat

SOURCE: HOW DO YOU PURGE OR RELEASE AIR ONCE YOU REPLACE RADIATOR, WATER PUMP AND THERMOSTAT?

Let the engine cooldown,then open the bleed screw on on the thermostat house,do not remove just loosen----fill water in the radiator bottle slowly and watch for water coming out of the bleed screw----
sometimes the bleed screw is blocked due to anti-freeze-then take the screw off completely ,clean and replace----always make sure the engine is cool

flush your radiator first.with the thermostat out you should see the water moving if not bad water pump.this engine needs the thermostat to function properly and either a 50/50 coolant or straight coolant so it does not boil over.also make sure your fans are coming on

Its possible that you got a faulty thermostat that is actually sticking open and not allowing the water to actually heat up to temperature. Try checking the heater and see if you actually have heat. If not, I would start there and purchase another thermostat. It's the cheapest route and I have purchased bad ones myself.

There are other things to test before we have the engine spread all over the yard. Cooling fan operation. Yes the thermostat hot air in heater just means hot water. start with a cold engine then start and run at a high idle if heats quickly upper radiator hose hot lower cold good but reverse no flow. remove and test thermostat (not replace) put on stove boil water and watch it open once center piece is moving check with thermometer it should agree with stamp number on thermostat. if good check for slipping fan belt. check for air restrictions on radiator and water flow.

Running hot


You could be low on antifreeze, bad water pump, bad thermostat or a collapsed hose. Assuming you do have plenty of antifreeze and hoses are in good shape, do you have good heat inside the car? When car is still warming up open the radiator cap and visually see if antifreeze is circulating. If it's not you can remove the thermostat and then check if you have circulation. If yes then replace the thermostat, if no then replace water pump. That's how I troubleshoot old school cooling systems.

I had the water pump replaced. Is there a relay or a valve that controls the heater, or would a thermostat control it???


i didn't see you last posting about your water pump but theres is a tiny radiator called a heater core. it has the same hot water running through it as your big radiator and engine have.so when you turn your thermostat to hot and kick on the fan the fan blows through the heater core and wallaa you have heat you probably need a thermostat.if you have no heat and it is overheating hear and there that's probably what you need.make sure you see if you filled the radiator up all the way when you changed the water pump.

First off you never have to drive to seal any gasket! If it did not run hot before the replacement of the pump it should not run hot now unless something is defective or improperly installed.Presure test the system for leaks first and repair any leaks before doing anything else.Be sure to make sure that the Head Gaskets are not leaking as well!

My cars interior is not being heated.


If the motor over heats it may be the water pump. A motor will not run very far with a bad water pump or stuck thermostat. Most of the time a water pump won't quit pumping water they leak. If the motor won't get hot enough it is the thermostat.
