If you replaced all that, it very well could be your antifreeze/coolant. Make sure that your coolant level is at a good level, and make sure that it is a normal color. If it is off colored from what it is supposed to be, for example, a brown, or rust color, or a tealish green, flush it and replace it. If that is not the issue, check for any leaks... good luck

    And if that doesn't work it could be your fan not spinning correctly or at all, before starting the car turn the switch on and see if the fan is coming on and spinning. If not you will need to replace your fan clutch, the fan is what cools the motor.

How do you properly bleed the coolant system on a 1994 Toyota Celica 1.8 stx?


If even possible, it sounds as though your water
pump is not turning the right way

It isn't even moving any water & that is all
you worked on, unless the thermostat somehow
could go in backwards

Running hot, replaced thermostat,replaced waterpump. still running hot within a few minutes of running.


if it is overheating within a few minutes of running first use a laser temp gauge to ensure that the gauge is working. if it is then next step would be to have the block tested. even with a stuck thermostat it shouldn't overheat that fast.

Engine keeps overheating


I'd start with replacing thermostat (that's the most common fault) Other possibilities; waterpump,leaky hose, radiator cap (not holding pressure), fan belt broken. I'd inspect for belt & leaks - if good replace thermostat.

Replaced my vehicles radiator, but vehicle keep on overheating after a few minutes. Possible thermostat problem?


The thermostat is the quickest and cheapest thing to replace. Follow the upper radiator hose back to the housing. It is located beneath it. I would try that first.

If you are seeing signs of radiator fluid on the ground directly under the radiator fan area, then your waterpump is going, or has already gone out. Unfortunately, you have to remove the timing cover and belt to change it.

Even after replacing the radiator, thermostat and


The problem with overheat is due to poor coolant circulating. The main culprit is the Radiator. When the radiator is clogging up, coolant can't be circulating. The stagnant coolant inside the engine water jacket keeps absorb heat from combustion chambers having no way to dissipate the heat then the engine is overheated. You can test the water pump by removing the thermostat, then hooking everything back. Open the radiator cap, then turn on the engine to see if water flowing down to several small tubes inside the radiator. If water can't go down fast enough to cause over flow at radiator opening then your 90 Legend Radiator already got clogged up. Replace with a new radiator, not even a rebuilt one. Good luck.

Water overheating on a year 2000 seat toledo 1.9tdi se, is the water pump easy to replace??


Water pumps are not normally what causes overheating, in fact that would be my last item to change. The only way that a water pump fill cause overheating is if the impeller has come off the shaft or completely worn down. I would first start with the thermostat. If this dosn't fix it, then I would be looking at the condition of the radiator I.E. is it plugged, are the fins up front full of bugs and debris ect. Then I would also check the cooling fan operation, does it come on when engine is hot? also does it come on with the A.C. operation-it should. Then last of all the water pump- and no its not easy on this one, due to lack of clearance.

1998 Buick Skylark is over heating


You need to check the radiator cap for air leaks and also try having the radiator Flushed as you could have plugged fins inside the radiator, causing the radiator not to cool the antifreeze.

Overheating


there is a coolant cap on the overflow bottle check it for seal
i'd just replace it
also if you put the new thermostat in backward the overheating would be significant
