HOW LONG WAS THE WATER PUMP ON, BEFORE IT STARTED OVERHEATING?
WHY DID YOU CHANGE IT TO BEGIN WITH?

A couple hours and because you could hear the water pump going out I had about 3 different mechanics tell me if I kept driving it that I would have to replace the raditor it sounded bad for about 3 DAYS. But never overheated untill we changed the water pump and a hose the bypass hose I'm pretty sure it was a curved hose

But it only ran for about 5 mIns before it overheated
IT'S KINDA SEALED UP SO YOU CAN'T SEE THE IMPELLER
IT IS VERY POSSIBLE TO GET A DEFECTIVE PUMP---I SEE STUFF LIKE THAT A LOT WITH MANY PARTS
IT MAY BE THAT WITH THE NEW ONE, CIRCULATION IMPROVED AND STUFF INSIDE THE RADIATOR BROKE LOOSE AND CLOGGED UP THE VANES
SHOULD YOU NEED A NEW ONE OR OTHER PARTS....THE PROCEDURE IN MY LINK MAY HELP AT THIS AND OTHER STORES AVAILABLE TO YOU......AT THIS PARTICULAR ONE, "A124" WORKED YESTERDAY! (IT'S BEEN WORKING FOR QUITE A WHILE)....SEE MY ANSWER IN THIS LINK
JUST TO SHOW YOU WHAT CONSUMERS MUST DEAL WITH NOW-A-DAYS, THEY MAKE THIS STUFF SO IT WILL FAIL!.........CHANGING THE PUMP MAY BE THE EZ PART, IT'S THE COLLATERAL DAMAGE THAT OCCURS WHEN SOMEONE CONTINUES TO DRIVE.....LIKE WARPED HEADS AND HEAD GASKETS
LOOK AT THIS......RETRO-ENGINEERING....."METAL USED BEFORE", THEY USE PLASTIC NOW (METAL IS STILL USED), THIS IS A VW AND A FORD TAURUS , AND ANOTHER VW..........I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT YOURS IS MADE OF

DO YOU HAVE YOUR BELT ROUTED CORRECTLY?
I SAW ONE THAT WAS MISROUTED (AND ACTUALLY FIT?) THE VEHICLE IMMEDIATELY OVERHEATED HAD SEVERAL MECHANICS STUMPED. THEN THERE WAS THE ONE MECHANIC WHO PRETTY QUICKLY NOTICED THE ISSUE. WHICH HAD THE WATER PUMP TURNING BACKWARDS. STUPID STUFF!

IT IS POSSIBLE........THINGS DO SEEM TO COME IN THREEs
IF IT'S BEEN LIKE FOREVER.......IT'S NOT GONNA HURT TO INSTALL A $5-$10 THERMOSTAT
