How do I check if the water pump is working?


Hi Andy, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Andy, there's a lot of things that can cause an engine to overheat and pretty much the same on all engines. I don't what vehicle, engine size or year you have but, here the steps you need to take. (1) Check the coolant level, low coolant can cause overheating. (2) Check that the electric coolant fan motor is coming on if in fact its cooled by an electric motor and not a mechanical fan. If the fan is not operating properly or not coming on at all it will overheat. (3) After and only after the engine has cooled completely remove the radiator cap and start the engine and allowed it to reach operating temperature and watch the coolant in the radiator. It will overflow some until the thermostat opens, this is normal. BUT, if after it reaches operating temperature and it continues to blow coolant out and overheats, when the fan is operating then you may have 1 of 2 things happening. (A) The thermostat could be sticking closed. If it is replace it and re-test it again. (B) If it still blows coolant out after replacing the thermostat, you could possibly have a blown head gasket. BUT, DO NOT assume its a blown head gasket, have it checked to make sure. If this helps you out please give me a thumbs up on my auto-repair-website here: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

What's causing my b 14 engine to overheat when at an idle for about 10to15 minutes


I suspect the cooling fans are not kicking in when the coolant reaches the trigger temperature. But you don't mention if the fans are operating.

When the vehicle is moving with enough speed there is usually enough air flow for the radiator to dissipate enough heat without fans but not when the car is stationary which is one condition where the fans are necessary.

In any event there is some material in the link you I suggest should read.

What to Do When Your Engine Overheats

I have already replaced the radiator and thermostat but my 91 Honda Accord still overheats, why?


Run a cooling system pressure test. If you are losing pressure, then you will have to first locate the source of your leak.

With the engine started and the radiator topped off with coolant, does the radiator spout water out of the top? Does the spouting become more aggressive with engine revs? Yes? = Blown head gasket, or cracked cylinder.
No?- check operation of radiator cooling fan. With car stationary and hood up, run engine up to temperature and make sure radiator cooling fan kicks in before the engine temperature rises too high.

I have a 2000 Dodge Durango 5.2L that recently overheated. I replaced the old radiator (had a crack) with a new 4.7L...she still overheats. I viewed that the cooling fan wasn't spinning...I chec


check for low coolant level make sure coolant system been bleed from air.make radiator full coolant and coolant reservoir on the full cold mark.if all is good the cooling fan relay could be bad or the engine coolant temperature sensor could be faulty.

The car is over heating while sitting still and is fine while in motion the fluids and belts are all good but I recently took it to an auto shop and they suggested that I replace the thermastate and the...


i would check and make sure the cooling fan is operating,if not it will overheat sitting still.a thermostat will cause overheating whether or not it sits still or driving(more so when driving).the same if it has a bad water pump although it may circulate just enough coolant when driving to not overheat with air flow also adding a cooling effect.if you don`t have a leak then i would say the water pump is okay as they usually will leak before causing a overheat problem.make sure the cooling fan is working and the rad does not have anything stopping the air flow over the rad and is not stopping coolant flow in the rad.

Car is running hot I think it's my water pump .


The most likely causes of a hot running engine are the following:

1. low antifreeze level in the radiator and cooling system.
2. fan not turning on at operating temperature.
3. restrictions in the cooling system such as sediment build up.

Water pumps usually leak when they are bad, and can cause an overheat because of low coolant level.
Check whether the water pump is leaking after topping off the coolant level and running at operating temperature, and then shutting off the car's engine.

I have 2003 grand cherokee with 140000 miles that overheats at idle. as soon as i start moving again, the temp goes back to normal.


You have two fan's on your truck, 1 is a fan clutch runs with the drive belt, 2 elec fan motor, with test light and engine running at normal temp, just a little bit above 1/2 way on your temp gauge check voltage at elec. cooling fan harness if you have voltage at one of the two wire's and fan don't turn on, bad cooling fan motor, on the fan clutch after you check voltage at elec. fan motor turn engine off, with your hand spin drive belt fan if it spin's freely bad fan clutch, replace it.Also check cooling level.Hope this was very helpful

Cooling system


these are somethings that maybe causing it to over heat (1) not enough cooling in it.(2) water pump drivebelt (3) Radiator core blocked (4) Bad thermostat (5) fan blades broken or cracked (6)Radiator cap need to be replace (7) Ignition timing incorrect if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair Manual for your car wish you the best of luck Michigan Man

How does the fan operates, does it starts and stop. Car shuts down, red light come near milage guage, have to let car cool down and start again. Can fan cause this problem? Pontiac Gran Am 1998.


the cooling fan should come on about 105-107C and shut off about 95-97C
does the car overheat just sitting running not moving
but if the car overheats on the highway then it's not the fan
check the fan operation run the car till the gauge is over half and watch the fan
if the fan woks then check coolant level if that's ok then try a thermostat
hope

Vw passat 03 overheats when ac is on in peak traffic/stationary


since the water pump was replaced, make sure you don't have an air pocket in the cooling system. flush your cooling system again. remember, if all was well before the tune up/preventative maintanance, it's within those items that were replaced. I don't think it's the condensor, thats a/c related, but the radiator and water pump, well those can cause overheating problems. when the system overheats, you will feel it in the ac.
