1999 chevy vortec running hot

Change the coolant sending unit for the gauge. Usually this is different than the Coolant Temp. Sensor which is for the pcm. Maybe the sending unit is no longer functioning correctly after overheating. Of course, a scanner could show the temperature as recorded by the CTS, or you could use a hand held infrared temperature device to get a better idea of the true temperature.

Was there oil in the spark plug hole? If so, you need to replace the valve cover gasket and possibly the coil pack.

I have a 1999 chevy cavalier and last night on the cold/hot gauge the needle was all the way over to the hot side. i arrived at my destination and the car was smoking. i looked under the hood and found the...

Lots of reasons the radiator fluid leaks - broken hose, hole on the radiator or blown water pump or head gasket being the main reasons. Fill it with water and turn the engine on - look under the hood to see if you can see where it's coming from.

If you ran it at hot for too long, you also run a risk of melting spark plugs, intake valves, and the engine will eventually completely seize up. Hopefully you don't need to wory about these added things, but if you find that the car won't run or runs poorly after you find/fix the coolant issue - these are likely the culprits. Good luck

Tuned up a 1993 chevy cavalier has spark won't start

Spray aerosol carb cleaner into the throttle body while an assistant tries to start the engine. If it runs for a few seconds then quits, you are not getting fuel into the engine. Check the fuses. You might have blown the fuse for the fuel injectors (possible if you removed any of the injector harnesses) or the fuel pump relay.
