I recently had my 95 beretta overheat as well. i am researching on the net and came to the conclusion that the water is leaking out of the "weep holes" in my water pump, which is telling me that the seals in the waterpump are bad and i need to replace them. i also went to advanced auto parts (auto part chain) and priced the pump (not the edelbrock) at 29.98. now i just need to find a guide on how to replace it. I reccommend your husband do the same, or if you have the money take it to the shop. im broke so im gonna have to do it myself.
A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. This can result in an engine overheating condition. A leaking water pump will require replacement.
Do i have to remove the motor mount in changing the belt or is there an easyier way
The water pump seems fine so we stated with sensors and found that the fan never comes on but tested it and the fan itself works. We were told it was a relay but can't find the relay that goes to i...
