99 cavalier overheats

I have a 99 chevy cavalier 2.2 that overheats, just before it gets hot you can hear this gurgling type sound from the resevoir that holds the antifreeze. the radiator, fan motor,thermostat(twice), ect sensor, and low coolant sensor all have been changed. the water pump has been checked as well and is fine, any suggestions.

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!

Can cat. Converter cause 97 chevy cavalier to overheat?

The cat could restrict the exhaust flow and cause the engine to run hot.
You would also notice a reduction in power and the check engine light would probably be on.

04 sebring gurgling engine

I expect you are getting air into the system, probably due to low coolant level which is probably caused by the leak. You need to get the leak fixed as soon as possible, and in any case, keep the overflow tank full.

I have a 2000 Honda with four cylinder engine. It doesn't overheat if the ac is on , but running parked it overheated and was gurgling thru overflow resevor. Noiticed the other electric fan does not come...

Check for voltage with test light at fan harness, wait till engine temp. is just above 1/2 way point, if you have voltage, bad fan assembly, not that hard to replace.

1999 Chevy Cavalier Z24 2.4L cooling fan inoperative

Probalby not, seeing that's what's telling your over heating. it wont be a bad idea to remove it (be carefull of hot fluid) and clean it off and put it back in. (wouldn't hurt anyways) but this problem is most likly a falty relay form the PCM to the fans. wireing might be corroed and need to be cleaned. check the fans for power and gorund with an omh meter.
