If you are replacing a water pump will this stop a car from overheating?

Replacing a bad water pump can help to stop a motor from overheating. Hopefully that was the cause of the overheating. If it does not stop the overheating, try replacing the thermostat. Make sure you have the proper mix of antifreeze and water, the radiator filled with it. Check the level of coolant FIRST. Next, the hoses, and third the thermostat. Then, disconnect a hose and see if, by starting the vehicle, if there's water pressure. If not, its water pump time!
