Belt Begins Troubles

courtesy of Bob, The Auto Answer Man

Hi Bob,
I have a Chevrolet Silverado. Last week, I was driving and one of my belts broke and the water pump locked up. I replaced both. My truck still was overheating, so I replaced the thermostat. Then I thought the radiator was bad, so I replaced that as well. The truck is still overheating. Do you think this could be a result of the clutch fan?

Hi Fred,
It may be vapor lock. Try bleeding the coolant system to remove all the air.
Good Luck!
Drive Safely!
