I am installing a new water pump for a 1999 Honda Accord and in the cooling system there is a lot of fluid like slim and rust I have ran water through the system letting it run through the water pump

did you open the rad drain and flush that way or take the hose off the bottom of the rad. sounds like you may have more than just water pump issues could be head gasket, take off oil filler cap there is white milky slime it could be head gasket make sure you locate the leak or it will all be coming apart again anyway. make sure the timing marks are correct when you put it back together

1997 diahatsu charade ltd overheating no water leaks ,no water in oil, hopefully could be thermostat, were is thermostat located?

open the car hood. look at the radiator, and then the top radiator hose. follow that hose to the engine. the hose connects to the thermostat housing cap. under that cap is the thermostat. here's what you need: ratchet, and sockets, flat-tip screwdriver, scraper, pliers, a new thermostat (any auto parts store), a new gasket, and some gasket sealant. Question, how old are hoses? if 3 years or old, let change those also. 2 new hose, 4 hose clamps, and some coolant. If we're changing hoses with this, lets start. drain the radiator, and remove the hard hose first, the bottom. now remove the top.hose, and lets start the thermostat. remove the bolts holding down the cap, and gently pry off the cap. flip the cap over, and scrape it clean to metal(we want NO leaks). now reach down and remove the thermostat, and lets scrape the housing clean to metal. place the new thermostat in the housing, and lets put a thin coat of gasket sealant on the housing. place the gasket on the sealant, and pick up the cap. apply a little gasket to the cap. place on top of the gasket, and bolt it down. now hook the hoses(if your changing them)and let sit 30 minutes for the gasket sealant set. after that, let add the coolant, and water. start the car, let it warm up. when the new thermostat opens, add more coolant as need to top it off. Hope this helps

How to remove water pump from 1999 pontiac grand am GT

After you drain coolant remove the larger hose at the bottom of over flow tank and the 2 smaller hoses at the top. remove the 1 bolt holding the overflow tank on and remove tank. Next take serpentine belt. Take the 4 bolts off holding on the water pump pulley and remove pulley. Next remove the 5 bolts holding water pump in. Clean water pump housing of old gasket and clean with alcohol or paint thinner to remove any residue. Use a small amount of RTV sealant along with a new gasket and put in the 5 bolts tightening them by hand. Next tighten the bolt a quarter turn at a time until tight.put on pulley, put in overflow tank and attach bolt and 3 hoses .

Losing water but no water under car water hose gets really hot and when you open the rad bottle water comes gushing out then bottle drains

maybe you have a blown head gasket and its going into the engine. do you get a lot of white smoke when your car gets hot?

is it gushing out of the pressure cap on the radiator or coolant reservoir? if so its possible the head gasket is on its way out. when you start the vehicle is there any white smoke/steam coming out of the exhaust it doesn't have to be a cloud.
If you fill the system then run engine, let it get warm and leave the hood open, switch off engine and stand well back and try and see where the water comes out of.

Leaking anti-freeze or water

Change out your thermostat gasket and upper radiator hose. This should fix the problem.

1996 Volvo 850 overheating

Is there any oil in the water or mayonnaise under the oil filler cap? If so, I'm afraid you probably have a blown head gasket. The hole being blown in a hose is symptomatic of that I'm afraid. As I've posted elsewhere, if it's a T5 then it's much, much easier to get a secondhand engine & change it over rather than change the gasket (in any case, it can turn out to be a damaged head rather than/as well as the gasket).

If not then check the water pump itself.

To check the radiator, disconnect the top & bottom hoses; connect a garden hose to the bottom hose (gaffer tape is your friend :) and turn on the tap. Pretty obviously, if water doesn't gush from the top outlet, you have a blockage - try more water pressure (not a pressure washer!), you may clear it :)
