OVER HEATING

1996 Peugeot 306

Engine Cooling problem
1996 Peugeot 306 Manual

Hiya, my car keeps over heating, have checked the rad, and impreller is fine. Themostat is working.

The water isnt circulating around the engine. Have taken thermostat out and run a hose through but the water doesnt come through.

Where could the blockage be?

Thank you.

The water isnt circulating around the engine.

Check the water pump

One way to test for a bad water pump is to squeeze the upper radiator hose when the engine is hot and idling. Careful, because the hose will be HOT! If you do not feel much coolant circulating through the hose when you rev the engine, the pump may be bad. The other cause might be a bad thermostat that is not opening properly (remove and inspect the thermostat), or a clogged radiator.
