Trouble shoot a cooling problem

Asked by Aug 28, 2014 at 04:44 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have flushed radiator, refilled it and let car
warm up and all pulleys turn, electric fan
kicks on but still gets hotter on temp gauge.
I can feel the upper rad hose get hot but
appears to have no water flow. Is this   a
bad water pump?
