Mazda Etude 180 ise produces a screeching sound and overheats, over a short distance. What can it possibly be, water pump or radiator, belts ,,,,, ? So depressing.


belt squeal
check tensioinand condition the drive belt to the water pump
or if the timing belt drives the water pump thats a bigger job

suspect a blown head gasket
if it boils out of the radiator

oil in coolant
coolant or water bubbles on dip stick

flush the radiator
refill with new coolant
replace
any old or leaking hoses
the thermostat
make sure the engine cooling fans turn and spin fast enough to cool

The water in my mazda bongo wont circulate top hose gets very hot while bottom hose stays cold , heater wasnt working but now managed to get heater working after bleeding the system but bottom hose still...


Check the radiator-it may have blockage. Take it off and turn upside down and flush from the bottom.
If the top hose gets hot, that means the thermostat is opening. The bottom hose should be at least warm, and quite warm if radiator flow is good.

1988 b2200 is overheating--we've changed out the lower radiator hose, thermostat, and the upper hose is fine. Why is it overheating? Radiator, heat pump, or water pump?


!st check and make sure the water is flowing in the radiator, then check
the timeing, Mazda will run hot if the timeing is rong.

Mazda 2003 protege overheating is this most likely the thermostat?


That's a good (and cheaper) place to start. You might also check belts (water pump at least) for cracking and glazing; the circulation rate doesn't have a lot of latitude and a slipping belt can have an influence.
Also, is your electric fan running when it should?
Also, once you are under the hood, check your oil for any signs of Jergens lotion (water/coolant contamination) and your overflow bottle for any signs of oil floating in it.  If you are going to get your hands dirty anyhow, you might pull your plugs and look for any suspicious rusty discoloration. This paragraph is assuming bad stuff; namely a failing head gasket which can also cause overheating if it has failed between a cylinder and the water jacket; during combustion, hot gases are pumped into the coolant which also should cause bubbles that you can see in the overflow bottle.
