20 Most Recent 2002 Mazda Tribute Questions & Answers

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

There are few things that can cause the vehicle to heat. Please check the following to resolve the issue:

- A faulty water pump can cause the car to overheat. If the water pump is faulty the coolant will not circulate properly on the engine which can result to overheating. You will need to have it replaced if that's the case.

- A worn out or damaged radiator hose. Just a small hole on the hose can cause the vehicle to overheat so have it replaced.

- A weak radiator blower motor. If the blower motor is weak it tends not to cool down the engine so have the blower motor replaced.

These are the few things that can cause the car to overheat so please have the following be checked.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I am wondering if you have a rad hose that is leaking. Check and see if the thermostat area is leaking where it comes out of the engine. I have seen this happen. Not sure but is the water pump leaking. Just ideas.

You still have a fuse or power down issue if clocks reset all the time recheck all fuses with a multi meter and make sure they are good sometimes looking at them is not good enough. If you don't know how to use an ohm meter Google it ok.

Your brake light bulb most likely has 2 filaments in it. One could be blown when the other is not. In this case you need a new bulb. Check the socket for corrosion.

batteries have no guaranteed life so it could be a battery
