98 GTV 3.0

98 3.0 V6 Gtv

Hello all, I'm a new member to this friendly forum and would love some advise on my problem

It's over heating badly, I have taken it to a Garage (not an Alfa speciallist) who has pulled the thermostat out and checked the flow of the water and there doesn't seem to be an issue there but when driven it just heats up way over 100 quite quicly and dumps all of it's water again, he seems to think it may be the water pump now but I'm starting to worry that he may be barking up the wrong tree so to spaek!!! the thermo fans kick in when it is warmed up on thje spot but when driven they are not working? Any advise would be greatly appreciated, I'm hoping I have not damged the head(s)

thanks

Hello and welcome, tools99.

i don't have the answer to your query but if you seek out the technical section on AO or even (dare I say it) the same section on www.sportsalfa.com I'm sure you'll find the answer.

Good luck.

Good luck.
I hope the users of that site also point people to here

Anyway....what does the rad look like? Could be the fins have all dropped off...but, it does sound like the water pump.
