Question about 2001 Ford Escort ZX2

1 Answer

Cars belt came off and the car started to overheat. Had the belt put back on and with it running "correctly" the car is overheating. Is it the water pump then that the belt falling off pointed out or could the belt be running incorrectly? Last time the belt came off the car didn't have overheating.

What could be wrong with my 99 Mazda Protege now? 5 months ago it overheated, replace alternator and belt, now battery wont hold charge and is overheating again, and loosing water coolant.


For a coolant leak you need to check all the hoses and fittings by radiator, heater core, expansion tank for leaks and/or integrity. Also make sure that your water pump is not leaking along with radiator cap and thermostat body. Overheat condition has no effect on battery - if it does not hld charge it is because it is chemically worn out and needs replacement. Until you correct water loss, have extra water in car at all times and run your heater full blast - windows open!!!!

Waterpump, seems like a likley culprit. Your Ac compressor belt runs over your water pump. when the ac is on it puts more load on your engine , your water pump may be defected and not able to handle the extra load.

My car keeps overheating..I changed the thermostat but the gauge is still all the way to hot..could it be the water pump?


Probly not. Unless the pump is run by it's own belt which broke. Usually , a pump is good till it starts leaking all over the place.
Please explain overheating problem more. Is it while you are driving , or when you are stoped in trafic. Does it heat up and overheat very quickly after you start the car. Is it really overheating , or is your guage just showing overheat.

you have a 1.8 liter turbo engine correct? it is the water pump that is driven by the timing belt. 100% positive this is correct i have replaced countless water pumps for this reason. the reason it overheats while driving is becuase the splines on the water pumps plastic impeller are gone and it is just freewheeling on the pump shaft. at idle the pump spins slow enough to get the impeller to turn. very very very very common. replace water pump timing belt and tensioner.

Engine overheating in traffic or when idling


I'm assuming your car has the Northstar engine?.

Strangely enough,if you remove the thermostat in the Northstar engine, it will overheat, this is because the stat is both a thermostat and a pressure valve.I can't be bothered to explain in detail how the whole cooling system works but please understand that you need to put the stat back in,(or preferably a new one).As for the cooling fans,what you described is normal for the Northstar.
Further to this, look at my profile,I have provided similar solutions for overheating problems.

Classic signs of a bad water pump. When on the freeway, the circulation of coolant through the system is increased due to the speed but once you slow down, it will tend to overheat. Please post back with any other questions or just to rate the solution. Thanks very much!

Overheating after timing belt change


Hi

If you took the car into this Garage , for just the timing belt, and then after there repair, you developed the overheating, then the problem should lie with them.

Did the car ever overheat before you took it too them ?

If not, go back and ask to see the Service Manager, and give him your grievance, that if they do not fix it, you will sue !

Good Luck !

P.S. Don´t forget to give me a rating please !
