Well, is the cooling fan working as it should? It should kick in at about 190F, if it doesn't the engine temp sensor may be faulty. You should also check the radiator, it can be clogged inside and outside. You can clean it up by disconnecting both hoses and running your garden hose through it until water comes out clear. Remember to replace all fluid with proper VW coolant.
Also clean the outside of the radiator as tree leaves, dirt and bug on the outside reduce performance greatly, clean it with a brush and a low pressure garden hose until you can see through it.

Where is the waterpump on 2003kia sorento lx ?


Water pump is Timing belt driven. It is below the Camshaft sprocket, in the timing case. If you want to repair/replace it here are the instructions.
>

COMPONENTS

REMOVAL
  1. Using the drain plug, drain the coolant.
  2. Remove the drive belt and the engine coolant pump pulley.
  3. Remove the timing belt cover, the auto tensioner and idler pulley.
  4. Remove the water outlet fitting, the thermostat case and the water pump fitting.
  5. Remove the engine coolant pump mounting bolts.
  1. Remove the engine coolant pump assembly from the cylinder block.
INSPECTION
  1. Check the engine coolant Water pump for cracks, damage or wear, and replace the pump assembly if necessary.
  2. Check the bearing for damage, abnormal noise and sluggish rotation and replace the pump assembly if necessary.
  3. Check the seal it for leaks and replace the pump assembly if necessary.
INSTALLATION
>

  1. Clean the gasket surfaces of the engine coolant pump body and the cylinder block.
>

  1. Install the new engine coolant pump gasket and pump assembly. Tighten the bolts to the specified torque. Tightening torque
Engine coolant pump bolt:
Head mark "7": 17 - 22 Nm(170 - 220 kg.cm, 12 - 16 ft. lbs.)
  1. Install the water pump fitting, the thermostat case and the water outlet fitting.
  2. Install the auto tensioner and timing belt. Adjust the timing belt tension, then install the timing belt cover.
  3. Install the drive belt, coolant pump pulley and then adjust the auto tensioner.
  4. Refill the coolant.
  5. Run the engine and check for leaks.

Timing marks trooper 1985 mod dlx turbo diesel


Refer to Figures 1,2,3,4 when performing 17-step timing procedure for 1981-1985 Diesel Engines.

Fig 1. Injection pump and camshaft alignment marks - Diesel engine.

Fig 2. Removing the timing belt holder - Diesel engine.

Fig 4. Tensioiner Pulley Bolt Sequence - Diesel engine.

Procedure - Timing Belt replacement.

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Drain the cooling system.

CAUTION
When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

2. Remove the timing belt cover. Remove the injection pump sprocket flange.

3. Using a prybar, remove the tension spring from the timing belt tensioner.

When removing the tension spring, avoid using excessive force for the spring may become distorted.

4. Remove the tensioner pulley bolt and the pulley.

5. Remove the timing belt and discard it.

To install:

6. Rotate the crankshaft to bring the No. 1 piston to TDC of the compression stroke.

7. Align the timing marks on the injection pump sprocket with the camshaft sprocket; the marks must be facing each other.

8. Using a new timing belt, install it in the following sequence: crankshaft sprocket, camshaft sprocket and the injection pump sprocket; the slack must be between the injection pump and camshaft sprockets.

9. Install the tension center and the tension pulley so the end of the tension center is fitted against both pins on the timing pulley housing.

10. Hand tighten the nut so the tension pulley can be rotated freely.

11. Install the tension spring and semi-tighten the pulley nut to 22-36 ft. lbs. (30-48 Nm).

12. Rotate the crankshaft 2 full turns clockwise to seat the belt and further turn the crankshaft 90° beyond TDC to settle the injection pump.

13. Loosen the tension pulley nut to take up the timing belt slack. Tighten the tension pulley nut to 79-94 ft. lbs. (108-128 Nm).

14. Install the injection pump sprocket flange; the hole in the outer circumference of the flange should be aligned with the triangular timing mark on the injection pump sprocket.

15. Rotate the crankshaft 2 full turns clockwise to bring the No. 1 piston to TDC of the compression stroke. Make sure the triangular timing mark on the timing sprocket is aligned with the hole in the flange, then, measure the timing belt tension; it should be 33-55 lbs.

16. Install the timing belt cover.

17. Connect the negative battery cable.

What is the time allotted for replacing a timing belt?


I believe it's 6 hours. That would include waterpump and tensioner labor, all three should be done at the same time since you have to remove the timingbelt to access the waterpump. The timingbelt has a longer lifespan than the waterpump but it's pointless to put an old belt back on. Considering it could end up costing thousands.

I keep having problems with my waterpump on my 99 ford ranger. I've replaced it twice and Im still having trouble with it


if its over heating its probably the thermostat or if water pump keeps going bad then there is too much tension on the belt.

Still want to shoot into a thermal runaway.


First of try to understand exactly what part you mention exactly how they work or function
  1. please place a new low speed relay as it try to make out thermal heating cool at it's initial 1st stage level of heating so that the temperature remain maintain if thus it reaches the second level of heating then the high speed relay act at that time & the speed of radiator fan increase to get thermal heating in control.
  2. the thermostat regulate the heating temperature of the engine it senses the temperature & signal to the relay the relay then react according to the temperature level of engine at low heating it operate the low speed relay & high temperature it signal to high speed relay so the engine temperature does not rise to extended level of heating or overheating.
  3. see for thermostat valve is failure if that so replace it new sometime most of the mechanic change it or cancel it so that the temperature does not rise as this thermostat help engine maintain it's ideal temperature which is required by the engine for regular or good working even at extreme climatic condition.
  4. Do check for every tensioner or Ideal Bearing as far consider on the No. of miles or Km the vehicle has run according to us the tensioner or ideal bearing are suppose to be replace at an interval of 30000 to 35000 Km. but this replacement include both Engine timing belt & tensioner & ideal tensioner bearing.
  5. A water pump flow depend on the tension of the drive belt some vehicle come with water pump which drive on inner timing belt tension & some on the fan belt or external tension belt of engine.
for further more FAQ do send in or place your problem we will sort it out till then have a safe drive & happy motoring from siddhanth.....!

Overheating blowing smoke


Your problem is a blown head gasket .You will need to have the gasket replaced . It would also pay to get the head crack tested and if it is ok get it machined or skimmed as it could be warped.
Consider replacing the waterpump and timing belt along with tensioner and idler.Make sure the thermostat is replaced also.Get the radiator cleaned as well.
Hope this helps

1993 mazda 626 battery goes dead and it overheats


That second Problem IS The Waterpump. As for the First Problem, You may need to replace the Belt and Belt Tensioner. If the Tensioner is Bad it will allow the Belt to slip and will Not allow the Alternator to Recharge the Battery. For that Matter it Could cause the Overheating Also. I would go with the Belt and Tensioner First and see where you are.

1992 Honda Civic over heating replace theormostat - still overheating air bubbles in overflow jug and in radiator when running with cap off...


here is a check list for common overheating issues low coolant? Any leaks? A headgasket leak? To test that use a coolant mix tester. Do the cooling fans run with the engine hot? Is the rad cap holding pressure? This can be tested usually its easier to swap it with a working one or buy new. Lastly the waterpump and timing belt. If the timing belt if old/high mileage or the tensioner faulty it can cause overheating. The common practice is to replace the timing belt every 100,000miles along with the waterpump and the belt tensioner
