The seal in the pump is out. you need to replace it. the reason there is still water in you resivour is because the water is sucked down through preassure. since you have no pressure because of the water running out of you pump it will not run out of your resivour. also you might check you water hose on the bottom of the water pump. it have burst or came disconnected.

Is difficult to fill gas tank


Gas pump nozzles have a device in the end that when gasoline runs back up into it, it turns off the fuel flow." There's a tiny hole near the bottom of the gas pump nozzle connected to a small tube.
Normally, air flows through that tube while you're filling and the gas keeps flowing as long as you hold down on the trigger. When that hole gets covered by gasoline (when your tank is full), a vacuum forms inside the nozzle and an automatic shutoff switch gets tripped, turning off the flow of gas with a thunk. Next time your fueling up try to reposition the nozzle.

No heat water over flowing out of overflow at top of rad


The over fill tank is usually connected via the neck of the radiator. This flow to this tank is controlled by the radiator cap spring/seal. If the overflow tank is actively having coolant pushed to it I'm willing to be the radiator cap is worn out. Try replacing it.

When putting gas in my 2004 Kia amanit the fuel nozzle kicks off. How do I locate and fix the problem


HI Bridgette,

Due to the different shapes of fuel tank filler necks in cars & trucks, it may be necessary to vary one or more things to allow fuel to flow uninterrupted until the tank is really full.

The main problem can come from the new "vapor recovery" gasoline pumps. These pumps and hoses actually recover gasoline fumes from your tank as the liquid gasoline displaces the air / fumes in the tank is it is being filled. If gasoline flow is started at full blast, it can splash back slightly, causing liquid to be pulled back by the pump - so it shuts off. So, start with a slow rate of filling and gradually increase flow rate to maximum over 5 to 10 seconds. If it still shuts off, try some of the suggestions below.

First, don't fill at maximum flow rate from the pump - that is, don't set the nozzle for wide open. Select one of the other "latches" on the handle instead of the fastest flow and let the tank fill entirely at this rate.

Second, you should experiment a bit with the length of nozzle that you push into the tank's filler neck. If you push it in too far or too little, the pump nozzle can do what you're describing.

Third, try twisting the nozzle slightly so that it doesn't hang straight downward - a little to the left or right may provide a solution.

Lastly, try a different gas station. Their pumps may not be so picky with your tank's filler neck.

Good luck!

I just changed the water pump, thermostat, and flushed the heater core. I ran the car for a while with the surge tank cover off and kept filling it. As soon as I got on th e-way it overheated.


The surge tank should only have a little water in it, not full. I hope you didn't overfill it, this can cause your problem, but I would look at the radiator and make sure it is not plugged and your cooling fans, make sure they are running as well. Then last but not least your water pump may be bad even though you changed it, check for good flow through the radiator, if flow is good and strong then check the fans. You have already done most of what can be done, make sure the thermostat is not in backwards, in fact take it out and see if the car runs cooler, this will help pinpoint the issue also.

It sounds like you have an air pocket in your system. By the RH strut tower take the heater hose loose from the metal line and fill the cooling system when coolant starts coming out reconnect the hose. If that doesn't work jack the car up where the over flow tank is the highest point and fill the cooling system.

it could be the thermostat. if the car stays at normal operating temp at idle and only gets hot when you drive it is the water pump. i just changed one that never overheated at idle even when it set for an hour or more. as soon as I tried to drive it I would get a mile down the road and it would be burning hot. took the water pump off and the impeller was spinning on the pump shaft.

My coolant expansion tank overflows after 20 minutes of running the engine


you either have a blown head gasket or cracked head both reasons will put compression gas into coolant system since air gets hotter faster than coolant any air in system will cause very fast over heating and push coolant out. the ford 3.0 is has a record of this problem the fix is not cheap and if you do it your self or have a shop do it both heads should be done and the t stat also replacing water pump would be wise

CAR GETS HOT AND I THINK ITS THE WATERPUMP FOR A TOYOTA PREVIA 2005


When the car is cool i would remove the coolant (radiator) tank cover and start the car then check to see if there is flow in the tank and see if the coolant level is really low if so fill it up to the proper level but ifthis is ok look to see if there is any flow in the radiator you should be able to see the water flowing around in the radiator or tank.
If you do not see any flow i would check the water pump outlet hose to see if there is any pressure if not then i would try to replace the water pump but if there is good pressure I would suspect the thermnostat it could be stuck shut thus not allowing the water to flow through the engine. in this case replace it.
And finaly if the radiator it'self is clogged it wont let the water circulate thru the system thus overheating the engine and you might even have a faulty thermostate temperature sensor but since you are saying that the fan is kicking on like it should i would not suspect this ok
I hope all of this is very helpful for you
Best regards MIchael

Everytime i try to fill my tank at the pump it


pull the nozzel out a little and don't squeeze the handle for full force.The more you squeeze the faster gas will flow the less you squeeze the slower the flow(to much flow)

Gas tank over flows when filling up


There is a tube that run down into the tank inside the fill pipe, it vents air as the tank is filled, if it is blocked your problem occurs, most likely it is kinked.
