Overheating so put water in empty overflow.fans are working. put a new thermastat in,still running HOT.adding water directly to radiator. oil looks good, checked plugs all look the same; looked good. when engine shuts off sounds like water is boiling. running it with heater on floor at full blast seemed to help but not for long.

You may need to change your heater core to allow the water to circulate better,,,it sounds like it may be partially clogged

Overheating


it could very well be a bad gauge. when it shows the engine to be overheated or at the least very hot, check the actual temp at the water outlet where the upper radiator hose attaches to the engine. use a non contact thermometer to check the temp so as not to get burned in the process. if the thermometer reads way different than the gauge, the gauge is bad.

2002 malibu runs hot.


Sounds like you have a faulty head gasket or maybe a cracked head.This can cause overheating and the check engine light to come on.The code for the o2 sensor is probably caused by coolant getting into the exhaust system and coating the sensor.The coolant fan may work but it cannot remove enough heat from the rad to make the engine cool off.Try some engine coolant stop leak to see if it will help.This maybe only a temperary fix.Let me know if you need more.MOE

Overheating


Posible thermastat sticking closed. If thermastat doesn't open heated water is trapped in the engine causing it to run hot and not allowing hot water to travle to the heater core when called for.

The place to start is the thermastat. Sounds like it is probably stuck closed.
