I recently bought this car and the water reservuare had cracks in it so I replaced it. The water in the resevuare bubbles after about 10 minutes and the car runs hot. It dosent smoke at all.

Do you
have the same problem?

If it is running hot, check to make sure the thermostat is good and working, the radiator isn't plugging, and make sure neither of the radiator hoses are collapsing when it gets hot.
