My torrent overheats at stop lights and while idle I have checked the coolant levels and it’s fine I have replaced the thermostat so I know it’s not that I checked the radiator fans to make sure the are working any ideas? Could this possibly be the water pump?
Coolant level goes down after overheating and the coolant boiling out of the overflow fans run when it overheats and stay on til after the engine temp goes to a normal level even with the engine turned off the fans run
The pressure cap has to be tested or replaced. If it holds only 10 psi the vehicle can overheat and your removing the cap wont tell you that. If the system had never been cleaned in 11 years you may have a clogged radiator.
That’s was my second choice I took it to a shop they said they think it has an air pocket but needed more time to check that they checked everything else and said the rest of the system is fine and told me a flush wouldn’t help but I’m not that knowledgeable to know if it would or wouldn’t
