  • warm up

    I replaced the water pump earlier this summer. Not really sure how much anti freeze is in the cooling system. I had driven the car home while I lost antifreeze from a bad water pump. How long does it take to warm up, just touching the upper radiator hose doesn't make me warm and fuzzy, any more. Should I drive the car the in the parking lot , I don't like waitng around for the car to warm up . This car had been sitting from a hibernation of 29 years. Has a replaced radiator.

    You may have a bad thermostat or it may be in upsidedown.
