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!

My 99 alero keeps overheating but the coolant is full, and when i shut it off it starts gurgling what is wrong


Is the thermostat opening at 195 degrees ? Does the radiator fan come on at 220 degrees ?
The gurgling noise is usually air or coolant moving around in the system. If the engine is very hot this noise can be normal.

Can cat. Converter cause 97 chevy cavalier to overheat?


Yes.
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.

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.

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.
