I replaced the old waterpump. Also changed out the belt. It was pretty tight to get on. Water pump is turning when engine is on. Also i didnt remove the thermostat, Just the hoses. Changed out the thermostat too with another one but no difference. When i was trying to diagnose the problem. I saw that engine was pretty warm but not overheating. The reservoir was cold. If i was revving at this moment some fluid would come back to the reservoir. If i had cap of it would flood.
For a week it was just fine, then it started overheating at the highway. Before it overheated it was making a rattling sound
and the imrc got stuck at closed position.
