If checking your coolant system doesn't reveal any bad hoses, corroded radiator or leaking water pump shaft, you may have a blown headgasket which is far more serious.

2002 dodge intrepid.if water pump is leaking will this car run hot


If you lose sufficient radiator coolant any water cooled engine will overheat as will yours. You do not need to lose very much coolant for an overheating condition to occur.

If you allow the engine to run in an overheated condition you WILL cause very expensive engine damage many times what it will cost you to have a new water pump and new WP gasket fitted.

2006 Equinox. Losing water. Over heats. Is this a thermostat or water pump problem??


Depends on where the coolant is going.
If it is an external leak it could be a leaking water pump. If there are no external leaks and you are loosing coolant, it could be a blown head gasket. Especially if the engine has already overheated once.
A sticking thermostat would cause the engine to overheat and then loose coolant from the overflow tank. But not until it overheats.

Will tappets on a pontiac 3.8 start rattling after motor overheats?


it can if the motor got very hot. you may have poor oil quality from overheating. damaged valve lifters, damaged camshaft/bearings, oil pump, water in oil which can cause engine damage from overheating. it will have to be checked out to find what caused the overheating then the lose of oil pressure to cause the rattle.

Overheating and no heat


With what you describe sounds like the hot water is just heating up but not circulating and cooling correctly. Possible causes, airlock, faulty water pump, check fan belt tension, not broken etc, blockage in engine water way or collapsed hose. Are you losing water at all? Head gasket?

Engine overheating


It is possible you have a leaky head gasket, allowing combustion gases into the water jacket. If this is bad, you will see white bubbles in the coolant, like dry ice, but not in every case.

There is a test for this condition you can have done

Overheating coolant boiling out into reserve tank


you have a blown head gasket.. doesn't have to have coolant in the oil for a blown head gasket... if hoses are rock hard when running then you have exhaust leaking into the coolant via a blown head gasket...
