My buddies Sami just started overheating. When he turns on the heater, no heat comes from it. Tomorrow he'll have the radiator flushed out. He has a new cat converted & exhaust system (TT). Any ideas why it's overheating? He also installed a new thermostat....

Check the thermstat, place in hot water and see if opens, if not replace it.

also I have had the impellor wear out of my original 189K mile engine, it would move some water but not enough to cool the engine.

Good luck, hope this helps

Your symptoms defenetly point to the thermostat he installed. If its not opening, coolant is not flowing through the radiator, it's just sitting in the block. Check the thermostat.

Check the value on the firewall for proper operation. When you move the hot cold lever on the dash the value should move in and out. It allows hot water to flow to the heater.

Is it really overheating or just reading high? If just a high reading check sender, also pull sender and poke a wire in the hole to clean out any crud.
