Probably the water pump is shot, and that's possibly where it's leaking from too.

My nissan 280zx is overheating even after I redone the hole engine why


Is the engine holding it's anti-freeze? When I do a total rebuild I usually have the block and heads boiled in a hot tank and replace all the freeze plugs. If you don't have any leaks then I would try a different thermostat. Possibly a little lower degree one. You can check your thermostat by putting it in a pan of water and heating it up to boiling while monitoring the temperature with a thermometer. If it's a 180 degree thermostat you will be able to see it open about the time temperature gets 180.

Having over heating problems with my 2000 taurus it does it most with def. or air cond. on full blast did find small leak at water pump where it bolts to block. replaced both cooling fansand,the thermostat...


No!!!!...Yes!!!
No, the sending unit is working right.
Ideas? Yes, I think the problem is the water pump. Don't drive it overheated till you get a new water pump or have it inspected. You say it's a small leak where it bolts to block, but maybe it's the "weep hole" on bottom of pump leaking, meaning the internal seals on the pump have failed. If so, it won't be a small leak, it will leak all the time engine is running. A lot may be swept away by air, or by evaporating. Check it out. That's a likely cause of overheating.

I keep geting a low coolant indicator when it first starts in the morningalso it keeps overflowing and boiling our of the overflow tank. This happens even when ythe coolant level is below full.


Either the thermostat is stuck in the closed position...or the engine cooling system cannot pressurize...both will cause an overheat condition.
A blown head gasket can cause overheat condition as well as fluid loss (boil over)

I'd maybe remove the thermostat and either just replace it or not have a thermostat installed just to see if it still boils over. If it boils over with no thermostat installed then you're getting into possible leak in cooling system...i.e. water pump weep hole, hose or radiator leak...or a blown head gasket.

Hope this helps...

SMOKE UNDER HOOD COULD BE COOLANT LEAK FROM RADIATOR ITSELF OR CHECK FOR LEAKING TOP RADIATOR HOSE AND CHECK FOR LEAKING BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSE.LOOK UNDER THE HOOD IF COOLANT BOILING OUT COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG ENGINE OVERHEATING FROM BAD THERMOSTAT OR BAD WATER PUMP.CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAK AT WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE.IF SO WATER PUMP NEED REPLACING.ADD MORE COOLANT UNTIL LEVEL CORRECT.TRY LOCATE LEAK. IF CAR OVERHEATED AND BOILED IT OUT. SMOKE UNDER THE HOOD CAN ALSO BE CAUSED BY LEAKING VALVE COVERS WHICH CAN BE FIRE HAZARD IF OIL LEAKS ON HOT EXHAUST MANIFOLD.

My 2002 mazda 626 was overheating. Replaced the radiator (cracked) and coolant tank (leaking). Still overheating. Its the thermostat or the water pump right? Which should I check first? Where how and what...


I would check the thermostat. It should be in the housing that the upper radiator hose connects to. I would take the thermostat and put it in a pan of water on a stove, if the thermostat doesn't start to open before the water begins a rolling boil, the thermostat is probably stuck closed.

The water isn't boiling, you apparently have a combustion leak into your cooling system. What you are seeing are compression bubbles. Possible cracked head or another head gasket. Sorry.
