I'm just going to by pass, I'm so frustrated that last night I said to hell with it (part hunting). I'll be back at it tonight, after work, and will let y'all know what happens. Again thank you for all y'all's help.

Re: Aux water pump? Is this why my car is over heating?

Did it overheat before from what i read, no. Try to bleed they system again it may take a bit because the thermostat needs to open to release air too.

Does the fan work properly(both) did you by chance test it? When is the last time the water pump(primay) was changed? How about the thermostat?

Be warned the water pumps have plastic propellors so if you don't remember the last time it was changed it may be due.

Would a clogged thermostat cause the aux water pump to pop?

Shouldn't because it is closed till operating temp is reached, may just have been worn out its been on forever.
