Question about 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

Car overheats and sometimes wont start

Ok the car is a 98 chevy cavilier,2.2l 4 cyl. The car overheats to just about the red mark or before the H, not all the way hot, and sometimes it starts no problem an sometimes it dont start at all, even with a jump, but if you put gas pedal to the floor, to shut fuel off, then it fires up, there is no sign of head gasket bad or water pump or poor circulation,it still blows hot air out the vents, so its not a circulation problem,no smoke out the exaust or any smell of antifreeze, an atifreeze is full. If anyone understands this or knows anything about it please get back to me asap.

Hi
Easiest test is to reconnect jumper cables and switch lights on, if these work and no noise AT ALL from starter, NO clicking at all then could be the jumper cables are too light like most are. Try 2 sets of jumper cables. Ensure that the cables are correclty applied, Red to Red and the black is the last connection to a good steel part on your engine, NOT the battery.Always ensure the car being used to jump from is running at all times while cables are connected.When it starts remove this one FIRST also.
