94 grand am over heats

My grand am over heats going down the road. it gets up to about 220 then goes down, but then it will drop. Also at a stop sign it will over heat. Could this possibly be a cooling fan?

Most Likely it is a sticky thermostat .Make sure the engine is not hot then it is under the intake where the the big black tube connects. It should have a black rad hose hooked to it. It is not a big job to change just a weird spot. Make sure to replace gasket and a new rubber seal that goes on the thermostat.

It could be the cooling fan. Or it can also be the TCS temperature control sensor. when you have an opportunity have it scanned for a code at any autozone or other parts store. They do it for free at Autozone.

What causes oil pressure to drop to zero but goes with accelleration


If your oil is full, it's most likely electrical. If it's not electrical, then it's most likely something like a crack in the pickup tube, sucking air if I had to guess.

Coolant gauge rising at or above 240 degrees in stop and go traffic


be sure to see if you may be a little low on your coolant but if that's all its doing feel good but your temp in your car shouldn,t go up all that much once it get to its running tempiture so keep a mental an physical eye on it but if it keeps going up an down specially when you give it gas an it goes up and down when you let off the gas you could have a problem

94 grand cherokee cutsoff going down the road then won't start until it sets for a while


When it won't start someone will need to find out if you are dealing with a no-spark or no-fuel problem to proceed.
If the check engine light is on you should get the computer scanned for trouble codes.

Okay well when im driving down the road


sounds like the alternator is going bad. I had the same problem in a 94' Ford Probe. I replaced the alternator and it ran perfect. Hope this helps

94 pontiac grand am stalls at stop lights/signs


Try checking for vavuum leaks. Possibly at the PCV valve. Had a friend whose 94 grand am 2.3 did the same thing... had two or three vacuum leaks and one of them was a totally shredded PCV hose. Hope this helps!
