Question about 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix
One day it got hot and quit. had a friend replace the water pump. The car will crank and run but will get hot aft a bout 10 minutes of driving. Once it cools down you can crank and drive again. It does not seem to get hot until driving.
Start by flushing your coolant system, then refill with a quality coolant.
Run up to temperature and check again for level (when cool again)
Check that the radiator is getting really hot quite suddenly when running from cold, as this is the best way of checking thermostat operation.
When over a set temperature (check your manual) the fan should come on.
If it never does - troubleshoot the fan (temperature switch or sensor first, then fan on direct feed to see if it powers up ok)
