Question about Cars & Trucks
I have cheked weather the fan belt is running it is running so what will be the problem
Look for the simple things, first. Maybe you need the bugs and mud cleaned out of your grill and radiator.The next thing I would check would be your pressure cap. If it is not sealing properly, you can have boil overs and have anti-freeze escape, especially after you've stopped or slowed way down. I'm betting that it's your pressure cap.. Stop by an auto parts store, have them look at your vehicle and sell you the proper pressure cap.. I bet that will fix it.. I assume you have the proper anti-freeze in it?? If all of this doesn't help, then you probably have something like a cracked cylinder head.

SOURCE: RADIATOR FAN
If you've got the hydraulic fan, check to see that the solenoid at the power steering pump is plugged in. My 1993 3.0 had this happpen, and that's what was wrong. You have to pull the front passenger side wheel off to access the pump. Just stick your hand up in there and feel around. You'll find it. One way to check is to let the car idle and turn the a/c on full blast. You should hear the fan start to roar after a few seconds. If it doesn't, then check the solenoid wire. Worked for me!

SOURCE: leaking coolent by oil pan
The 3.1 liter V-6 engines in several GM models had problems with the intake manifold gaskets leaking coolant, between the intake manifold and the top of the engine block, due to faulty gaskets. There was a class action suit on this problem, but I don't remember the time parameters. I know it's about 6 or 7 hundred bucks to have it repaired at a GM dealership. Good luck.

1- Open the oil cap, if you see the milky stuff inside the cap then the engine is having a head gasket problem since water is mixing with the oil thru head gasket. You need this fixed ASAP.
2- If there is no milky stuff, you are still lucky.
3- Now you need to check if you have a thermostate or/ and radiator clogged up problem.
4- Take off the thermostate.
5- Reconnect the upper hose.
6- Run the engine
7 Squeeze the upper hose to feel water flowing inside.
8- If there is water flowing, the problem with the thermostate. Put in the new therostate. It will solve your problem.
9- If there is no feeling of water flowing then you have a problem with the water pump or the radiator clogged up.
10- To check if the water pump is working or not. Wait for the engine cool down.
11- Disconnect the upper hose from the radiator.
12- Turn on the engine and continue feeding water thru the radiator cap.
13- If water was pumped out at constant flow, your water pump is good. Change the radiator since it gets clogged up. This is your problem.
14- If water is not pumped out, the problem is the water pump. Change the water pump since this is the culprit.
Since the troubleshooting is involved intensive labor, most shops are just replacing part at your customer expense by replacing one after another. To be ahead of them, you troubleshoot the problem then tell them to change the correct part. Good luck .

Your coolant sensor may be stuck in advanced timing mode. Change it & the engine will start easy in cold & warm weather. The sensor is located near the thermostat housing. Remove the electrical connector & unscrew the sensor. Replace but do not over tighten, 5ft. lbs. Top off any antifreese loss. Good luck!
