cooling system

Post by westside_t_s_d. »

hi guys i have a question.....
can your water pump still be stiffed even if it looks good?

my thermostat carked it the other night which cause the car to over heat .... the top tank on the radiator split at the seal to the alloy section as well.......
i replaced the radiator and thermostat for the car to still heat up...... no heat from the heater until i gave her some revs then some hot air came through then stopped again, so i thought ok water pump too, the water pump is off and i can't find a fault.....the thing still turns freely, doesn't wobble on the bearing and the fins are still solid on the pulley... so im lost.
