SOURCE: 1999 chevy cavalier keeps overheating,

these cars are notorious for that.It needs to be "burped" when your car is cold then open the resivoir(coolant).Start the car .As it warms you will notice the tank level will rise.Do not let it boil over!! when it starts to get warm then turn the car off and watch for bubbles in the resivior.add more coolant as the bubbles come out .repeat until no more bubbles come up.The problem with these cars is that an air pocket forms in the water pump.

I have 1996 Opel Astra , 1.4 L. The temperature gauge stays close to RED mark. I think the engine is getting overheated.I think about removal of air pockets out of cooling system.

find the highest hose and loosen of the clamp to release the air from the system
many have a bleed screw at that point as well
have a compression test done and have a coolant pressure test done to check for leaks

Your overheating problems can have several possible causes.
1) Airlock in heating system - solution - bleed air from cooling system.
2) Radiator blocked - solution - drain and flush radiator
3) Failed waterpump - solution - fit new waterpump
4) Engine thermostat stuck in closed position - solution - fit new thermostat
5) Electric cooling fan (if fitted) failing to operate - solution - check fan, fan operating switch, all wiring and connectors
6) Not enough coolant in system - solution - check and top up to required level. Also check all hoses for sign of leakage.
7) Faulty temperature gauge giving incorrect reading.

Two possiblities; a blown head gasket, or a freeze plug leaking. If possible take it to a trusted shop and have the pressure checked on the radiator, they can tell you if your radiator is stopped up, or the freeze plug is leaking, and if it's blowing back in the radiator when you remove the cap then it's a blown head gasket.

The relay. There is a black box on the right hand side of the engine at the top corner. It encloses all the relays. Make sure you are looking at the diagram well. Exchange the relays and remove the wiper relays and exchange them with the radiator fan relays. Start the engine, run it for 5 mins and see if they kick-start.
