Having problems with your Mazda Protege ?
Replaced Water pump, thermostat and radiator, car overheats in 15 minutes????? What could it be?
Sounds like it could be compression gases coming out to the cooling system. If You have been using just water in your radiator, instead of a good quality antifreeze with good anti-rust agents this could be a good clue. It could be caused by a leaking head gasket or head. The right fix is to do the appropriate repair. The cheap fix is to apply an do-it-your-self treatment from any auto parts store to stop this leak. These treatments sometimes will clog your heater core if it is already a little dirty and not heating as it should. Carlos C.
