Your belt did not burn off because the engine is hot. It burned off because one of the pulleys has seized. With the belt off, all pulleys except for the one attached to the crankshaft should be easily turned by hand. Find the one that's not turning and replace it or the component it's attached to (steering pump, alternator etc) and your problem will go away.

Ihave a 99 vw passat 1.8 ,replaced head timing belt,gear,and cover,new water pump,thermostat,and overheats very quickly.it has 2 fans,1 electric the other is driven by beltsand is with fan clutch,clut


First, Ronald is an IDIOT! DO NOT power wash the engine EVER! If the engine is really hot and you spray ice cold water on it can crack the head instantly! Also, everyone knows' water and electricity don't mix! the ignition control module is $300. A little water on that and its gone!
If your car is overheating, you may need a water pump! The one you got, may have been bad! The rule is, as soon as a car overheats, the thermostat MUST be changed! A simple test would be to remove the thermostat and close it back up! A few dollars for the gasket is all you will spend! Try and run the car without it and see if it still gets hot! If it still gets hot, check the water in the radiator or resivor to see if the water is also hot. If its hot then the water pump is working and you need to check the fans! You can run a power wire to the fan to make sure they are working. There are relays for those also! If they are not turning on, that is most likely your problem! I rebuild VW's for a living!

Replaced water pump and thermostat, still running alittle hot.


Is it actually running hot or is the thermostat gauge showing it is running hot? The reason I ask is because after spending money on a thermostat, fan clutch, and almost a radiator because I thought mine was running hot, I found out it was my sensor.

Got a 96 crown vic that runs but smoking white smoke from under the hood and it runs hot ....the resevoir is full so there is no leak there and i replaced the thermostat but it didnt work


you ether have a coolant leak or one of these are the problem thermastat,fan clutch,water pump,radiator, try this start car when it reachs normal temp open hood and pinch the top radiator hose if it is hot water is flowing thermastat is good now open radiator with a towel slowly while it is runing see if the water is moving if it is you water pump and radiator are good, now at some point in this time you should have heard the fan get loud if not your fan clutch is not work it mounts to the front of your water pump and is normal to go out because they lose about 250rpm a year which does not give them much of a life, dont forget to check your heater hoses they could be leaking
