You must make sure the fan is working, if it has a electric fan make sure its coming on and if it has a regular fan make sure it spins fast , a slow spinning fan may be due to a bad fan clutch but if it electric it may be a bad fan or coolant fan switch. you replaced the thermostat and the rad cap, make sure the system is bleed and full, then check the fan operation. good day.

Serpentine belt on a 3800 supercharger


there should be a decal under the hood somewhere that shows the belt routing. if its gone you can probably go to the library and find a book of your car that will show the routing and you can either draw a picture or take a photo of it.

I have a 2003 Ford Focus ZX5 and have had a great deal of work done in the last 3 weeks. I have new spark plugs, wires, gasket cover, oil change and the motor mounts replaced. After picking up my car...


It depends if the Serpentine Belt is worn or not, i.e. cracked, glazed, dryed out. If it is good and the belt is still squealing than it may be a bad Belt Tensioner, which is not keeping the belt properly tensioned. (Loose Belt) Replacing the Belt will not solve the problem of the car running hot. You will need to fix the Electric Fan that is not working, because if you keep on running the car hot all the time you may blow the Head gasket to your engine which will cost you about $800-1100 dollars to repair.

1995 toyota avalon, overheating,just changed s/belt compressor stop working, now it runs hot. is this now a prblm with water pump or first thermostat?


I do not see a good connection between the serpentine belt and the engine overheating suddenly.

Perhaps you have a lot of burnt belt rubber on the water pump pulley?

Is the upper radiator hose hot? If so the stat is opening. If you start the car cold with the radiator cap off you can watch for coolant starting to flow and make sure the stat works...if the flow is low you have either a blocked stat or poor belt grip at the waterpump. Have you flushed the radiator recently? After 15+ years your car could be ready for a cleaning.

Car is running hot occasionally and the serpentine


Well there's only part that has to do with the cooling system and serp belt - the water pump!! Maybe it's starting to seize or has too much play. Either way, when you change the water pump, replace the thermostat and flush the system very thoroughly, those 98-99's are notorious for rust build up. Make sure to pull the heater hoses off and flush the heater core too. After all said is done, purge the coolant and make sure there is heat from the blower. If not you're going to have to replace the heater core because that gets clogged sometimes when flushing.
