    Default Over Heat

    I just installed a new water pump and thermostat, but the car over heat specially when the car is in traffic. When I run the car on the freeway, or non stop the car run just fine, but as soon as the car hits traffic the temp meter almost gets to the red area. I already bleed the car about four times. If, someone have an idea please let me know how can I fix it.

    Check your fan clutch, and go here:

    I'd also change the radiator cap, they've only got so many over heats in them.

    Did you bleed the cooling system?

    check if the front electric auxillary fan turns on with the AC...if so you may have a bad temp switch. That car shouldnt overheat unless a real hot area, your clutch fan is also probably really weak.
