I had plenty of water in the radiator and water bottle.
It's a clutch fan. The fan will still turn even if the w/p is siezed up, hence the suggestion to try turning the w/p itself instead of just the fan. It'd suck if he put a new belt on just to have it burn into in a minute.palladin said:Your car overheated...so nothing was pumping the water through the engine. You can spin the fan by hand, which is connected to the ...water pump....same belt as the alternator. Many times if you changed the alt and/or belt, the bracket gets loose. I don't see what the problem is here...other than the obvious.
