1995 sentra heat problem.i done the head and replaced the water pump and redaitor cap and just had the head skimmed when i go on a hill its heating


Did you change the thermostat. It might be stuck halfway open. When you start to go up a hill, the engine heats up more, the thermostat needs to open more, to let more coolant by to the radiator.

02 isuzu overheated


check your coolant level. Check to make sure your cooling fan is running, Thermostat could be an issue also. Also check water pump. To check thermostat feel top radiator hose when vehicle heats up if it gets hot your thermostat is probably working if it does not then ur thermostat is probably stuck closed and needs to be changed. If your water pump is leaking out the weep hole (small hole at neck of water pump) then you will need to change the pump because it is going or has gone out.

Have an 2003 Olds Alero 2.2L, overheating. Removed thermostat housing/feed pipe to check thermostat to find no thermostat present, however the heat has working, although it has took 5 or 6 minutes to warm...


I can't give you any specifics on how to change your water pump, but I can answer your questions about the thermostat. Yes, the heat will work withou a thermostat. And yes, a car will overheat without one, especially in the summer months. The purpose of a thermostat is to allow cooler water to flow into your block, but also to allow the water adequate time to be cooled in the radiator. Without the thermostat, water is continuously cycling through your coolant system, getting hotter and hotter. Often I see people with malfunctioning thermostats jsut remove them, sometimes on the side of the road, just to get where they're going.

My cars interior is not being heated.


If the motor over heats it may be the water pump. A motor will not run very far with a bad water pump or stuck thermostat. Most of the time a water pump won't quit pumping water they leak. If the motor won't get hot enough it is the thermostat.

Car is over heating. Alero 2001


If you changed the hoses and thermostat and the car is still overheating, then the next thing to look at is the water pump. See if the water pump is leaking water from a vent hole. If it is, then the water pump is defective and will need to be replaced. Sure hope this helped.

  1. (This is for a 2.2L engine) If equipped with an automatic transmission, remove the exhaust manifold.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove the thermostat housing to water pump feed pipe bolts.
  4. Remove the thermostat housing to water pump feed pipe.
  5. Remove the thermostat.
