Question about 1998 Mazda 626
I have a 1996 Mazda 626 2.0 Automatic. It runs hot after I drive it for a few miles and when the needle enters the red zone, I smell antifreeze after a while. The water pump belt snapped and I recently installed a new belt also the pull is running freely. I also changed the radiator cap and thermostat. One mechanic told me to run the car for about 15 minutes and to feel radiator. If the top is cold,then there is a a blockage in the radiator. I did this and the top is hot.
Of course the top is hot water goes into the rad from the top and out of the bottom into the engine, the fact that the belt broke makes me wonder about the integrity of the water pump, the impeller might be slipping, could still be the rad , does the heat go from the top to the bottom???
