Having problems with your 2000 Chevrolet Silverado ?
2001 chevrolet pickup v6 overheating after changing waterpump
\015 We changed the waterpump because it over leaking, and then changed the thermostat and now its overheating and don't know why\015
If you are not getting heat now, it's because you have an air lock in the system. sometimes it can be difficult to burp the system. try turning the heater on high in the defrost position. run your vehicle with the rad cap off and keep the engine running at about 1500 rpm. That should give the waterpump enough momentom to purge the air through the engine. check around the heater hose area and around the thermostat area for any bleeder screws ( sometimes these vehicles will have 2 or 3 for ease of purging the air). hope this helps and if you need any other info please don't hesitate to write.
Have you Checked the Fan Clutch? Does it have an Electric Fan Also for Cooling?
