in addition to what the wiz has said it can also be cause by a faulty water pump (usually mounted on the front of the engine & can be easiliy found by looking for the pullies & belts driven by the engine). Water pump faults can include a faulty or loose pully for the pump ie broken belt, or too much "play" in the belt pully assembly, a leaking water pump, blown gaskets/seals. In short anything stopping or restricting the flow of coolant from your radiator to the engine block is going to cause over heating so also be aware of dodgy radiators & blocked or damaged lines ect. You should be able to easily trace the hoses going from your radiator, engine & pump as this is the path water takes to cool the engine.

Enjoy & good luck!

Yeah, The fuel pump can go bad . The normal warranty on the pump is 12 months or 12,000 miles. This is very rare . I would check if the fuel pump had a lifetime warranty.

I would also check the ignition switch, and all the fuses to make sure the fuel pump is the failure.

Good Luck

Why wouldn't water circulate through the radiator


You are spot on. Bad water pump. It is also probably the reason your timing belt was frayed. The water pumps of later model cars usually drip some through a "weep" hole in the bottom when they are going out as a kind of warning "Hey, you gotta get me a replacement soon!" But unless you live where no air conditioner is ever needed, or used, most people think it is the drippings from the AC. Get that pump replaced ASAP and when done, do a compression check on all your cylinders to make sure there was no head gasket damage from overheating. Good luck.

It is possible that the pump failed because of an overheating problem. Make sure the fans run by turning on the air conditioning. They should operate as soon as it is turned on. Bad fans are a common problem. The pump should not have been leaking after replacement though. Make sure you have no leaks first and foremost. Then make sure the fans work. There is also a fan control module located in the area under the battery, but it is difficult to properly diagnose. If the fans do not turn on with the a/c, you can jump the wires at the thermo switch. One should be power, and when you jump to one wire they should go to low speed, the other high.

Could be the water pump itself. If the impeller blades have worn out then it won't push enough water through. Possible head gasket too, that can be tested at a shop. Possible clogged radiator, if the heater core was clogged, more then likely the radiator is too.

Radiator overheating


The only thing missing from your narration is the water pump. Check to make sure that you are not losing coolant from the water pump. Make sure it is not leaking coolant. If there is evidence of leaking, the water pump is bad. You must take extreme caution when dealing with the cooling system (hot liquid under pressure; not a pleasant thought), but you can remove the radiator cap and start the engine. Check the coolant in the radiator for movement/circulation. If the water pump is functioning properly, there should be some visible sign of water/coolant circulation. The water pump may not be at fault, but with the other upgrades you made to the cooling system, some gunk (for lack of a better word) may have broken loose and clogged the ports in the water hose. You can also remove the hose at the water pump and check for anything clogging up the works. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Overheating Express


is it acually getting hot or is it just the gauge on the dash saying so? a quality scan tool can show you what the coolant temp sensor is telling the pcm it may differ from the gauge.

Make sure you don't have a bad head-gasket. Check for excessive pressure in radiator or hoses. Check under oil cap for creamy/milk like residue or actual antifreeze in oil or the opposite oil in antifreeze. Let me know what you find. Good Luck
