When you changed the thermostat you have to 'burp' the system to get all the air out. You must put the heater on full and fill the system via the radiator cap until the car reaches full operating temperature and the fan cuts in.. This is NOT the reservoir, the radiator cap gives access to the full cooling system water capacity..

My 95 Villager overheated and was pouring water out the bottom. It instantly cooled after 20 min and has not overheated what is wrong with it? Do I need to change the thermostat or water pump? How do I do...


sounds like the water pump .but the last time i saw one of these vehicles i lifted the bonnet and shut it again ,it was so compact its untrue ,this one i saw had no chassis number stamped into it so i couldnt import it and it was driven back to the UK .

Engine overheating


Assuming you have no loss of water invesigate the cooling fan operation.If you are losing water but cannot see signs of this then investigate your head gasket.
