I have a 1999 neon I replaced Timing belt waterpump it still overheats


Have you not suspected a failed head gasket,
done a cylinder combustion gas test or other
tests!!

I assume the timing belt is on correctly,the thermostat
is working & the radiator is not clogged or exhaust
converter not blocked

Most all issue except the head gasket are from failure
to replace some item based on time in
years or mileage

If your working in your driveway & run out of ideas,
you need to know when to seek help at a local shop

At least go there & ask questions,you don't have to
leave the car or pay for that

TIMING BELT BROKEN AFTER HEADGASKET BLEW AND REPLACED


Something went wrong, did they reuse the timing belt,when a vehicle over heats and blows the head gasket the timing belt gets fatique.Who ever replaced they should be responsible for it, just work it out with them ,They have to warranty the labor,They did not inspect the part just threw it on.

I bought a88 mazda 323 and it had been sitting for two yrs when i started it after idleing ten or 15 min it runs hot . there are no apperant blown head gasket signs can you help me?


After sitting that long replace thermostat and refill with new coolant.Also make sure waterpump is turning when car is running. A glazed belt or seized waterpump is a possibility.

My 98 ford contour keeps overheating i just replaced the radiator and the water pump. And there is no water in the oil. The fans work but it still overheats . What else could be causing it to overheat?


I can't believe anyone would replace the waterpump without also replacing the thermostat. Once overheated, a thermostat is no good anymore. It must be replaced.

But that is not the only possibility. You could have a bad head gasket, without having oil in the water. Only a pressure check can tell. You could also have a collapsing lower hose, as water pump suction causes it to pinch off. You could also have an air bubble from not bleeding it properly when refilling. You could also have a loose waterpump belt. You could have put in the wrong waterpump, as the type for normal V-belts runs the opposite direction of the type for serpentine belts.
There are many more, but that is all I could immediately think of.

How to replace a waterpump on a 1999 chevy lumina?


The waterpump is located on passenger side of the car. Its location if you were standing looking from the passenger side at the engine is at the top right of the engine.There is a pully at the top of the engine that has 4 10mm headed bolts should be a non grooved pully.Loosen the bolts on that pully with the belt on once you loosen these bolts but do not remove them just yet.Using a 3/8 drive ratchet find the belt tensioner and release the belt making sure you remember the belt routing.Typically the the belt routing is printed on a plastic shroud that is just above the waterpump. Once you have removed the belt take out the 4 bolts that you previously loosened.Remove that pully now and the waterpump is right behind that. Sometimes the pully sticks a bit so you may need to put something behind it to gently dislodge it.There are 5 bolts on the waterpump the head of these bolts are 5/16 or 8mm remove the the five bolts using a quarter inch drive ratchet.Once this is done you may need to dislodge the pump.A dead blow hammer works well or a block of wood and a hammer could be used in a pinch.This should not require alot of force.Just a few taps should do it you are just breaking the gasket seal at this point.Now that the old pump is removed the old gasket needs to be removed from the waterpump housing. make sure all old gasket material is removed so the new one will seal properly.Take out the replacement pump and and line the new gasket on the waterpump once you have done this remove the gasket so you can adhere the gasket in place with a thin coat of rtv or weatherstrip adhesive.Now you ready to reverse the process to put it back on.Just make sure to line up the five bolt holes and your ready to go. Hope this helps.

Car is overheating but is holding fluids


Waterpump, loose/broken hose, or head gasket. Waterpump is most likely, unless recently changed. Make sure you get the Timing Belt done, unless it's also been done recently, if the water pump is replaced.
Good luck,

Car backfired and died. would crank (very fast) and either not start or start and die. Let it sit for a few days. Now will start and run, "ticking" from engine and water in oil. Head gasket or timing...


If you replace your head gasket, you'll have to replace your timing belt too...

NEVER re-use an used timing belt!

Water in oil, can be a sign of worn head gasket, yes!

Overheating blowing smoke


Your problem is a blown head gasket .You will need to have the gasket replaced . It would also pay to get the head crack tested and if it is ok get it machined or skimmed as it could be warped.
Consider replacing the waterpump and timing belt along with tensioner and idler.Make sure the thermostat is replaced also.Get the radiator cleaned as well.
Hope this helps

Leaking water down the side of motor from the head gasket


it can possibly be a broken gasket seal in your water pump, i recommend that if this is the problem replacing the timing belt and water pump at the same time. i have a 1987 toyota camry station wagon as well and the same thing happen to me, if its leaking from teh side, its most likely the waterpump which is located underneath the alternator and attatched behind the timing belt
