HI...
I'm one of the biggest fans of FIAT , so i've just bought a second hand Punto sx60, 2002.

I've an overheating problem, the water is leaking from a hole in the water pump and the funny thing is when the fan goes on the temperature indicator goes higher to reach almost H :confused:

Please advise what to do and what might be the problem?

Thanx...

i'm guessing the hole in the water pump is the problem :confused:

if coolant is leaking from the system, the car will start to overheat?

i'd start with a new water pump and see if the problem continues...

yeah if you have found a leak. start thre and get that sorted. overheating can be caused bt other more serious things like head gaskets going. but as you have aleak hopefully that is the prob nothing else.

as for fan thing not sure thats a bit stange.

i would say that if it is overheating dont really dive it untill you get the leak sorted as this will cause more damage then you would definately need your head gasket sorting if it keeps over heating
