Overheating still after replacing top gasket and water pump and lastly i remove the thermostat, wait could be wrong?

It sounds like the water pump is ok, however If the fan is operating properly you may have a partially obstructed radiator. That can be cleaned and flushed to see if that helps. You will need to replace the antifreeze at that point.

Welcome to Fixya

Maker sure that you have enough water to your radiator and reservoir. Double check the rediator for any holes. Check also the water pump if it is working. You may look the radiator from cold start and see if the water is running. if water is running, it means that fan water pump is working and water is circulating to your engine. Check also the blower of the radiator. If you think that the fan is moving slow then you might need to replace the fan.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Replaced the thermostat and water pump and the car is now overheating...what is wrong?

I would guess that the thermostat is in backward. The side with the copper button needs to be on the engine side.

Overheating after rediator replacement. Thermostat was replaced, fans working fine.

If you have more than 60k on the vehicle and
have never done a timing belt or water pump this is the time to do it.

The water on my car keeps heating up alot and it goes into the engine coolant resevoir leaving the rediator dry

You need to replace the radiator pressure cap. I would also replace thermostat, drain and flush radiator to start. If it continues the water pump may be not pumping water. If the thermostat is stuck closed it wont allow water to cycle through the engine causing it to boil and the pressure cap is not holding the pressure allowing it to flow to the reservoir. So first change the thermostat and the radiator pressure cap.

My 93 nisson quest has no heat but is overheating

bad water pump or clogged system. is the car overheating, if so water pump. take off the radiator cap, then start your car, if you can see antifreeze swirling around, pump is ok, if it looks like it's standing still, waterpump. And a clogged system, might not be the only problem, it's just the more, common issues.

I have an overheating problem.what could be wrong

Overheating can be casued by a few things.

2)Water pump
3)Dirty coolant clogging the pump

A thermostat is the cheapest part to replace, a thermostat opens and closes allowing coolant into the motor as needed to keep it cool, if it gets stuck closed then it doesn't allow any coolant into the motor thus overheating.

A water pump is what pumps your coolant around the system, and if this goes no coolant moves thus overheating. Usually when these go bad they leak coolant and are also noisy when bad.

Lastly could be bad or dirty coolant, a coolant flush can take care of this.

If I were you I would start with the thermostat followed by the coolant flush, both of these can be done in your driveway.

Hope this helps
