Hi
debbie, It could be as simple as the coolant is too low. When the car is cold (not driven for 4 hours or more) check the level in the overflow bottle, it has a level (usually cold and hot), fill to that level., and also take off the radiator cap. The radiator should be filled up to the bottom of the cap. Fill that too. (your car owners manual will show the locations of this, or ask someone who knows abut cars)You should be using a 50/50 (half water half antifreeze)mix of water and antifreeze (coolant).You can also purchase it already mixed at any parts store. When the level is too low, your heater won't work, and your car will overheat, so it's possible it wasn't refilled all the way after the water pump was replaced. Let me know if you have any questions, and how you make out w/ the car. countrycurt0

Over heating , antifreeze leeking from that water


Hello,

If your water pump is leaking from the water pump for sure that is causing your over heating problem. I am sure that most likely the seal is gone. There is a main seal in the pump, and those are normally the first to go, and you are better off replacing the whole pump, that trying to fix it. Once your water pump is replaced , the over heating problem should be fixed. If pump is leaking it does not have the pressure provided to have the antifreeze and water to flow correctly through engine block and radiator.

Thanks Mike

I have 2001 alero. Yesterday the coolant light came on and the engine just died. Any ideas maybe fuel pump or timing belt or could it be the water pump


IF LOW COOLANT LIGHT CAME ON ENGINE SHUT OFF BECAUSE IT GOT TOO HOT AND OVER HEATED.WHEN YOU HAVE LOW COOLANT.YOU COULD HAVE LEAKING RADIATOR.YOU COULD HAVE LEAKING RADIATOR HOSES AND WATER PUMP. ADD MORE COOLANT IN CAR RADIATOR UNTIL YOU AT FULL COLD MARK ON THE OVER FLOW COOLANT TANK START THE CAR LET IDLE UNTIL ENGINE GET OPERATING TEMPERATURE.RAISE YOUR HOOD LOOK FOR LEAKS THE RADIATOR PRESSURE WILL PUSH COOLANT OUT WHERE LEAKS COULD BE.LOOK AROUND RADIATOR AND COOLANT HOSES.LOOK AT WATER PUMP.IF YOU SEE COOLANT LEAKING AT WATER PUMP REPLACE IT.

  • SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEED A HEAD JOB. CRACKED HEAD OR NEED A HEAD GASKET. CHECK YOUR ENGINE OIL IF IT HAS WATER IN IT OR IF WATER IS LEAKING OUT OF TAIL MUFFLER ITS A CRACKED HEAD. IF NOT ITS HEAD GASKET. ANOTHER THING WHICH COULD BE IS FIRST MAKE SURE THAT THE WATER PUMP IS NOT LEAKING WATER CUZ IF IT IS THEN IT WILL BE THAT. SOMETIMES RUNNING YOUR VEHICLE WITH A BROKE WATER PUMP HEATS UP ENGINE CAUSING HEADS TO CRACK WHEN FILLING WITH WATER BUT USUALLY THE HEAD GASKET GOES FIRST. HOPE THIS HELPS.

I over heated my 03 4.6L discovery now water is coming out of of the engine mechanic said that the block is crack and tha #7 cilinder is misfiering cuz cilinder wall crack


How long did you drive after it overheated? Water Pump maybe bad and leaking from weep hole, misfire may be due to heat damage, wires etc, but I would get a second opinion before saying the cylinder wall is cracked. Unless you really overheated and drove for a while, you should not have done that much damage.
