I have a 2000 Eddie and just had the same problem, it ended up that the thermostat was sticking and the radiator had some build up in it. That in turn led to the water pump going down and stated leaking. First thing I would do is check the thermostat and hope that the reason because it's only a $10 fix. If that's not the problem I would flush the radiator and lastly, look at the water pump if the other two didn't work. I just shelled out $891 to have all this replaced.
