1990 Ford Bronco 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 179254 miles
I recently replaced my radiator for the second time. The first one got a hole in it. Thank goodness my son remembered that I had gotten a lifetime warrenty with it, so the second one came free of charge. This last summer, I had some work done and the macanic said that the water pump was going bad, and would have to be replaced soon, but he couldn't say when. He did some work, replacing the valve cover gaskets and thermostat, along with some other things that I can't recall at the moment. Now my car is over heating again, (hence the raditor replacement, it was really bad-caked with mud and gunk). So myquestion is why is it over heating? And blowing smoke through the heater vents inside the car? Is this the water pump or something else like the head gasket, or what. And did the exisiting problem, cause the last new radiator to go bad? Please help ! I can fix alot of things myself, and am fairly decent at trouble shooting, but I haven't run across this before.
have the same problem?
