Did you have oil in it. depending on the severity of the overheat you may have seized the engine. You also could have a head gasket problem. The cooling system on these little cars can overheat in heavy traffic and going up a hill a little too fast. Solution? If it started and showed white smoke out of the exhaust. Head Gasket. If it won't turn over with the starter it's seized. Both will cost a mint. If you had no oil engine could now be junk.

Rough idle on 1999 chevy cavalier z24


Check for vacuum leaks. Spray some carb cleaner or WD40 around the intake manifold, trottle body and any vacuum lines. Check for loose connections on engine wiring harness (Maybe you disconnected a sensor, and forgot to re-attach it?).

1999 Chevy Cavalier Z24 2.4L cooling fan inoperative


Probalby not, seeing that's what's telling your over heating. it wont be a bad idea to remove it (be carefull of hot fluid) and clean it off and put it back in. (wouldn't hurt anyways) but this problem is most likly a falty relay form the PCM to the fans. wireing might be corroed and need to be cleaned. check the fans for power and gorund with an omh meter.
