I have a 1992 buick skylark v6 3300 it is overheating no leaks no oil in the water or water in the oil no antifreeze in te exaust just changed the thermostat

Probably the water pump, when the engine is completely cool, open the radiator cap, start the engine, turn on the heat full, and check to see if you have circulation at the radiator cap nosal you should see movement of water if pump is good....

How do you know if the water pump failed?

If the bearing failed, it will howl or be noisy. If the pump seal failed, it will be leaking coolant from behind the pulley- through the "weep" hole at the bottom of the pump. If the impellers on the pump that push water through are worn down, it won't leak or be noisy, but your coolant circulation will be impaired, and maybe critically impaired if worn down severely - some pumps use plastic impellers that wear quicker than metal ones. One way to check is with radiator cap off the warm engine (so the thermostat is open and coolant will flow from engine through the top hose into the radiator) and look inside the radiator to see if coolant is flowing in through the top hose. If unsure, squeeze the top hose as tight as you can to stop flow through hose, then release. You may feel the surge of coolant behind your hand as you release hose and you should see the coolant in the radiator moving. If still unsure, have a tech or mechanic check for coolant circulation.
Be very careful opening radiator cap on a warm engine. Turn engine off first. You may want to use a heavy rag on top of cap. Turn cap to first release and wait until any steam or pressure is gone. If coolant is hot it may scald you, and it may be under enough pressure that turning cap to first release will cause hot coolant to start coming out the radiator filler neck where cap sits. When pressure is gone go ahead and remove cap (turn some more to second release-then remove cap). With cap off, start engine and check circulation.
Good luck.

I have to give it gas to turn over and when I come to stops it heats up, I just changed the water pump,thermostat,and had raidiator cleaned and cap changed

two problems are unrelated. the overheating can be caused by a lack of electric radiator fan operation. the morining problem can be caused by a dirty throttle body
check them both out and let me know

Ok, Take the overflow hose out of the overflow tank and opput the end in a glass or jar of water. Start the motor and watch gfor bubbles coming out of the hose in the water.. Little tiny smokey white bubbles mean you have a combustion leak into your cooling system. Possible head gasket seapage.good luck

My 1999 jeep cherokee is overheating and the overflow is filling up and leaking out the top

How long as the radiator cap been on the car? If it is from the factory, replace it with a new cap and see if that helps.

Good Luck
