Question about Mazda Cars & Trucks
Replaced thermostat, radiator cap, water pump, redone radiator, replaced intake injectors and spent thousands to get the bakkie fixed but still overheating.
I have had trhis problem for months. Replaced everything and just found out it was air in the system. I purchased a tool take sucks all the fluids out of the cooling system into a bucket along with any air. Once the all the air is sucked out you reverse the the flow and it sucks the coolent back into the reserve and it works great after that. Has not over heated for weeks.

I had the same overheating problem in my jeep ! My problem was finaly found out to be the clutch in my fan its a different kind of clutch system it work as this. When your jeep gets warmer the tighter your fan clutch gets .While cool your fan moves slowly. now to test your clutch just warm up your jeep and rev it up a bit if your fan dose not pick up speed then it is sliping.What will come out of this is that you fan will the seez and run full all the time. if you jeep dose not overheat wile moving then it is not your thermo stat period.

Either the coolant is escaping, or not circulating. If there is coolant in a puddle under where the car is usually parked, then I would look above that point, track the leak back to its origin and fix the leak. If the exhaust smells of coolant, then you need a real shop repair for a gasket or worse.
If the coolant is not circulating then I would check for a bad water pump or a blocked radiator. Lots of the L Saturns had leaking heater cores, a slippery wet passenger floor and stink was the indicator.

I had the same problem and tried several things that didn't help. A friend introduced me to a Northstar mech. that explained the real problem. Internal engine relief was faling which created overheating between cylinder sleeves and engine block creating blow back pressure in cooling system. There is a fix for this. The mechanic helped me with the problem and car is running once more... Anyone thinking they have a head gasket, intake gasket, or thermostate problem should look at this fix.
