I just had my water pump relaced but my car is still over heating. I was told to make sure that it was bleed and if that doesn't work it is more than likely a blown head gasket. My mechanic told me that my car does not have to be bleed after replacing water pump, is that true? I have a Northstar engine. If it does need to be bleed, how do you do that?
Have you gotten any answers to your over heating problem? Mine over heats as well. I haven't gotten mine fixed yet but was told that it is possible a PLASTIC INTAKE by the manifold. Please advise if you have had your car fixed and if this was the problem.

No it doesnt need to be bleeded. Are you still loosing coolant? How bad did you overheat it? Did he put a t-stat in also?
