I was told this van has plastic gaskets that go out alot easier than the standard gaskets. They will make your van overheat. almost had to do this on mine. Lucked out and it was water pump.

if your not losing coolant its either a blockage or bad waterpump and more than likely its the water pump

SOURCE: 99 cavalier overheats

I was just having the exact same problem with mine!! (my 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier)
It turned out that replacing all of the parts you mentioned, I just had an air bubble in my system and needed to run it with the cap off and fill it up with water as the engine ran and the air escaped.
Hope that helps you!

SOURCE: 2002 Chevy Impala low coolant light is on

I had this same problem with my 2002 3.4L engine impala. Unfortunately, there was a coolant leak at the lower-intake manifold, caused by a cracked gasket. I replaced the gasket, water pump, thermostat, spark plugs and wires and flushed out the heater coil. Didn't find out what it was until after spending 100s on Dex-Cool. I kept refilling it for months until I got a good mechanic to fix the problem whom told me that this is a common repair on older impalas and GM vehicles with 3.4 and 3.1 engines.

Sounds to me like the Throttle Position Sensor. Thats usually what makes the throttle "rev" But that is not going to make the oil pressure drop. Pull the codes from your car and look them up online. sometimes there is an extra fuse u can add to your panel and turn the key on and it will flash your codes via the check engine light. i.e. if the light flashes 2 times then small pause then 1 time and long pause that is code 21. if there isnt a extra fuse you can usually jump it with a paperclip and pull the codes. not really sure how to do that with yours. but im positive Google knows ;)

My 2001 malibu 6 cyl heater blows cold air on heat setting changed thermostat waterpump idling pulley reservoir cap and flushed lines

Can you check/feel along your hoses from the engine towards the radiator when hot. It should obviously be uniformly hot, Suddenly going cold would indicate a blockage. Same check through the radiator and back to the engine, obviously it will cool through the rad but if it goes stone cold after the rad then that still indicates a blockage which coupled to the over heating is a prime suspect. If you've lost any water then it could be air locked and need properly bleeding. Jon

Heaters blow cold on my vauxhall vectra

I have a astra the same thing ,when its really cold i slide a piece of cardboard in front of the rad ,yes i know i changed the thermostat behind the timing cover and it should get hot but?? bled the top heater hose and all that but for some reason it will not get hot .The only other thing i do when the weather get cold is to fit a renault thermostat in the top hose ,one of the old renault 4 /5 type that goes in the pipe but as this spain it doesnt get that cold very often .You could try removing the pipes to the heater and flushing with a hose pipe and reversing the direction a few times but if the engine isnt getting hot to start with then thats most likely your problem .

You didn't say what year your car is. Change your thermostat it is in the housing at the end of the top rad. hose. as far as check engine lite goes go to auto zone they will check your codes (FOR FREE) do not drive hot WILL BLOW HEAD GASKETS also if car is 10 years or older check your rad. hope this helps CJ PSchange thermostat first

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive

Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.

Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Flush good.

Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.

Stop leak can plug everything.

Also.......not likely causing over heating....but your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.

1999 Pontiac Grand Am Overheating

It is probably the problem. To make shure that need to change the gaskets, one of the symptoms use to be thet the temp rises when you are running at speed 50+ average, where is supposed that the car gets a lot of air due by the speed and nobody thinks that will be overheated.

Have you checked your rad fans? Rad flow? Rad condition? Possible water pump problem if those check out good.
