Temp gage goes to HOT in six blocks. New thermostat, then new temp coolant sensor, problem continued. Flushed radiator twice with plain water and w/ flush solution, bled system, problem continued. Took car into rapair facility. Repairman checked pressure w/ device said can detect no leaks, refused to replace water pump (pump was replaced in 2006). I can see no belt going to pump. Start-up is some times rough I think you can briefly hear signs of growling or slipping, then settles. Timing Belt seems to have play in it to me. Could loose timing belt affect water pump function?
