Hi jan
Sounds like you have an air leak on the suction side of the pump...if air gets into the impeller and hoiusing it will cause the pump not to pump properly and heat up as you describe.

My well water pump is short-cycling & shuts off due to overheating. Any ideas??

If it is short cycling the tank is probably water logged and needs to have the empty air level set. Basically that means drain the tank (pump off first of course) then check the air in the bladder. Should be a couple pounds less than the low cut in setting of the pumps pressure switch. This should let the pump rest between cycles and stop the overheating. If it still overheats you have a failing pump and will need to replace it or rebuild it.

2001 Montero Sport, 3.0, 4X4: New water pump and thermostat (170 deg). When accelerating from a stop, a (flowing) noise is heard: It is almost a 'trickling' sound, like the sound you hear in a...

if your sure the cooling system is full than i wouldn't be surprised if you had a head gasket that has failed.

This would explain the water noise, and overheating.

With the engine cold remove the radiator cap, start the vehicle and let it idle. continue to monitor the coolant level in the radiator. top it off if it gets low. If you see a constant perculation of air bubbles coming out of the radiator than the head gasket is bad.

Sometimes you can also smell the radiator or the overflow. If it smells like exhaust than the head gasket is leaking.

'02 626 overheated earlier in the week. drove home. appeared to be out of coolant. replaced overflow tank(seal blown), added coolant, however it still overheats. what else to check?

Whenever you overheat once, then the thermostat must also be replaced. It is operated by the expansion of a contained wax pellet, and overheating causes permanent loss of wax.
However, you may also have caused a head gasket leak now from heat warpage. If the thermostat does not help, then borrow a cooling system pressure checker from a place like Autozone, and see of it holds pressure for 5 minutes after pumping it slightly above cap rating. Then start engine and see if it is steady or oscillating from 1 cylinder leakage.

Drain the coolant, flush the system, replace the thermostat, and pour in a fresh supply of a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water. If it still overheats the water pump is suspect.

Only 2 parts remaining are the thermostat and waterpump. Always start with the thermostat when diagnosing an overheating problem. If the car is overheating constantly under all conditions and coolant is backing up into the reservoir, it's very likely to be the thermostat. If it only overheats at low speed or idling, it's more likely the waterpump.
