Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 1996 Chevy Cavalier, 2.2L. Awhile ago it started overheating, and i noticed leaking. I ended up replacing the head gasket, water pump, radiator, Heater core, various gaskets, and the thermostat (twice, one from lordco, one from gm dealership). It is still overheating and i am not sure why. While replacing the heater core however, i had removed the thermostat, and used a connector to join the heater core inlet and outlet hoses, so i could drive. During this time, the temp never even made it into operating temp range. Is there something i am missing?
This sounds like the similar deal on the corsica might have a thermal pack on the tranmssion you are over looking if ou've hasd ths car for some time now and never checked the tranny Fluid, Now would be a goodtime to have it changed out. This is due to thermal break down of the fluid. if the tranny fluid is like that. It Cause more Friction heat to the Thermal cooling Pack to act like a tea kettle there will be over heating of antifreeze and spillage on the ground! As the Radiator Supplies the Thermal Pack on The Tranny!.....Check Tranny Fluid.
If it has a Orange Hue to Pinkish color; It'sTime For fluid change.
This can cost around 79.99 to over 100.00 depending on where you Shop!
