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!

Where is the Thermostat on a 1999 Chrysler Sebring convertible?

Behind the thermostat housing. The thermostat housing is located at the rear end of the top radiator hose. Follow the top radiator hose. It leads to the thermostat housing. There are either two or three bolts holding it in place. The bottom one can be tricky to remove. A quarter inch universal joint with a socket might work well. Unlike many cars which have a thermostat positioned horizontally, the 1999 Sebring 2.5 V-6 has the thermostat positioned vertically. It can be very tricky to get it into proper position while replacing it and putting the housing over it. It is sometimes easier to put the thermostat into the housing, and then placing the housing in position, and then placing the three screws in as far as possible using your fingers. Also, using a small amount of thick grease to hold it in position in the housing can help. I believe there might be a tab on the thermostat that must be placed into an indent in the housing, but not sure. I have this car, and have replaced the thermostat myself. The bolts are probably 10mm. The quarter inch or three eighth inch universal joint with an extension and a standard depth socket is almost required for the bottom bolt. -Douglas

Assuming that your gauge is accurate, then you probably have a stuck thermostat in the open position that is not allowing the coolant to stay in the engine long enough to reach proper operating temp. Replace the thermostat or have a good mechanic do it for you.

Location of the Camshaft Position Sensor on a 2000 GM 4.3L V6 Vortec engine?

The Camshaft Position Sensor is located under the Rotor within the Distributor. Remove the Distributor Cap (two screws - one in front the other in back), located at the rear of the engine, then remove the Rotor (two screws). The Camshaft Position Sensor is located under the Rotor mounting housing. The engine will need to be turned (hand cranked using a wrench - large nut behind the cooling fan) to position the Rotor mounting housing in the proper location to remove the sensor.
