New Engine Overheats

courtesy of Bob, The Auto Answer Man


Dear Bob,
I have a 95 Neon that I just changed the motor, and everything is new. However, I drive it about 20 to 30 miles down the road and it overheats. I took the thermostat out of the car and drove it, and it still overheated. I want to know what to do. Is it worth fixing or should I just get rid of it?
Thank you,
Bob

Bob,
If the new engine is overheating, then I would bring it back under warranty. You either have a bad replacement engine, or you forgot to change something and everything is not new. Did you replace the water pump?
Good Luck!
Drive Safely!
