SOURCE: Tempature Question. Have a 2003

There are a couple of things to cosider. One is that the temp gauge that is on the car is only a close estimate and not exact. The ranges that you are saying the engine is in are fine. To troubleshoot this issue if it is really bothering you. You need to get a diagnostic reading of the temp. Then you can see what the exact temp is. Then you need to check and see if the coolant is the right mixture. Check the radiator for obstructions internally and check the hoses for soft spots that inicate a collapse issue when they are hot and last but not least would be the water pump to see if it has worn impellers. The PCM will set an error code if there is a high or low temp issue that will impact emissions. So unless you are having driveability issues I would not worry about it,

SOURCE: My 2005 duramax is building up alot of pressure in

The root cause of the engine overheating was the closed stuck thermostat.
Unfortunately the cylinder head gasket was cracked, and as a result the air pressure from cylinders pass inside cooling system pushing the coolant out.
You need to remove the cylinder head and replace the gasket. Also check the cylinder head surface flatness before reinstallation. New cylinder head bolts required.

How do I stop my 01 explorer from 0ver heating. I already replaced water pump thermostat and radiator

Since you have done the basics, more information is needed. Under what conditions does it overheat, and how severely? Only when at idle for several minutes? Could be bad fan clutch or missing/damaged fan shroud. Severely overheats so bad you can't drive it at all? Blown head gasket? You can often diagnosis this by running with radiator cap removed and see bubbles in the radiator, or also look for water in oil, or oil in the coolant. Also, check with parts store. I think certain years of these run a reverse direction water pump, and if you get the wrong one they will overheat badly.

Replaced the whole fan, motor and all on my 2002 mustang gt and now it doesn't come on and water is blowing out of the radiator while the cap is off like its building pressure... What is wrong

It sounds like you have a blown head gasket or a crack in the head, these are the main reason pressure builds up in the radiator. Also check your Thermastat it could be jammed shut

Change water pump 6.6 ltr duramax

not too bad of a job, pull the fan and dampner. ive heard of guys saying they can do it without pulling the dampner (i dont know how?) it doesnt take long to get it off. dont put a cheap w/p back in, if the shaft seal goes out you will have alot of coolant in the oil.

How do I change the water pump on a 2004 chevy trailblazer 4.2L?

dont change a water pump unless it is leaking from the pump itself. if your vehicle is overheating check the simple items first. a water pump very rarely goes bad.

Need to replaCE WATER PUMP 2002 GMC DURAMAX DIESEL how hard?

This info is totally bogus.You obviousely have never changed a water pump on a 6.6 liter Duramax Diesel engine.1st off it isnt belt driven it is gear driven from the drive train inside the engine.You have to remove the fan shroud,clutch fan assem.,and harmonic balancer as one of the mounting bolts is behind the balancer.Also remove the left side inner fender for easier access.
