Good coolant, bad flow. Could be a defective water pump. see if there is any play in the main shaft of the thing and it's probably time for a new one anyways....I'd put my money on this solution.

If for whatever the reason, the coolant was lowered may have introduced air into your coolant loop and will need to be belched now..let's hope the new waterpump will fix ya, and you don't have a corroded water jacket~


Yup, bleed the air out of the coolant system.

i just put a waterpump on it an its still over heating.does anybody know what i should do???

you could pull out the thermostat altogether, if you wanted to take this vehicle somewhere without overheating.


Agree with Mark , thanks ! __________________________________________________
