Erratic engine coolant temperature or intermittent overheating can be caused by corrosion inside the water pump. The impeller may spin on the water pump shaft or the impeller may corrode. Either condition reduces coolant circulation resulting in engine overheating.

    Over heating problem. I had the radiator flushed,new water thermostat,new fan and fan motor and new coolant container. none of these helped. A new water temp switch that that feeds water temp to the control module fixed the problem ( the switch cost $11.80 )
