Engine Cooling problem
1991 Mazda Truck 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 130000 miles
I have spent money and time trying to get a good answer to my question. I dont mind payinfg for someone to realy help.
I have a truck that is overheating. The thing is that it will take about 45 to 60 minutes to reach red line. It does not matter if i'm in town or on the highway. I bought the truck used and have changed the thermostat and was in the process of changing the water pump. The problem is that I get mixed possible remedies.
Dose the heater core have anything to do with this I don’t see any water in the oil. One guy told me to start up the truck cold and if the top radiator hose had any pressure in it within 30 seconds that it meant I had a cracked head or blown gasket.
I would like to know what steps I should take first. Before replacing a bunch of stuff that did not need replacing.
Can anyone help?
have the same problem?
