20001 Mazda Millenia running hot .


Asked by Oct 02, 2014 at 08:31 PM about the 2001 Mazda Millenia 4 Dr Premium Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 20001 Mazda Millenia, and it has been running hot on me. I had the thermostat replaced and the radiator repaired, but it eventually keeps running hot. I know there's pressure building up on the hose and also if I start the car with the radiator cap off you can see little bubbles coming up and forming. Like air bubbles almost maybe. Any idea what could be my problem?

I would think water pump,or may be bad intake or head gasket,if you have a lot of pressure on the hose,s.

With cap off and engine running,do you see the water circulating?


nope, no water or coolant circulating. I might need to try the water pump. But after I see I have a gasket problem.
