What could cause my 93 Chevy Cavalier to overheat? I just put in a new water pump and a new thermostat but it still tends to overheat and now has a leak from the thermostat intake hose.


We need rule out a few basic things to properly diagnose the overheating problems.
Step 1:Do you think?there is enough antifreeze in the radiator? Don t just look inside the plastic overflow bottle only, you should remove the radiator cap and then look inside the radiator.We should see the fluid level whether it is at its proper level or not. Most cars and trucks will hold a mixture of coolant and water .You should have the cooling system pressure tested for a leak if you have to add more than a pint of fluid .If we see any obvious fluid loss in the engine compartment or on the ground , we should also have the system tested.
Step 2:If you don not see any coolant leak or low fluid level , then you should determine when the overheating problems occurred.If the engine overheats only at a stop or idle ,Most front wheel drive cars will use an electric cooling fan motor located in front or behind the radiator. The existence of function of the cooling fan is to improve airflow across the radiator at stops and low speeds.The fan is controlled by sensors,it regulates the engine temperature and additional load that might be placed on the engine.The cooling fan is required by the air conditioning compressor to operate at idle when the compressor is on.It is a quick way to check the cooling fan operation to turn on the air conditioner.
Also the cooling fan should come on with the air conditioner compressor. Some automobiles will have two electric fans, one is the air conditioner condenser fan and the other is for the radiator .It will have a belt driven fan blade and fan clutch if your vehicle does not have an electric cooling fan on the radiator . This fan should be pulling a large amount of warm and hot air across the radiator onto the engine to keep it cool.The radiator fan is usually closer to the middle of the radiator. The radiator fan is responsible for cooling of the engine, while the condenser fan is responsible for increasing air conditioning efficiency at idle and low speed.If there is ample airflow across the radiator at idle. The radiator is responsible for the primary heat exchange for the engine, and airflow is crucial at this time.
Step 3:Again, we have ample airflow across the radiator, so we must inspect the proper antifreeze circulation.If there is a restriction in the system , it will produce the same affect.Water calcification can accumulate in the radiator and then drastically reduce the flow of coolant at a very high speed. Removing the radiator from the vehicle are the only two real cures for a clogged radiator.It be a waste of time and money trying to correct a restricted radiator when you use a can of radiator flush additive. Of course there are more technical issues that could produce an overheating problems, but the check list described above will identify the most common.Anything you can do to help the mechanic to deal with the problem will probably result in less diagnostic charges, and it might help insure a proper diagnosis of the problem at once of your 1993 Chevrolet Cavalier.
Step 4:You must inspect an electric motor cooling fan ,it will start with ignition key switch off, it has failed and needs to be replaced if the 1993 Chevrolet Cavalier fan motor does not spin freely . The electrical system operates the fan needs to be tested,If the fan motor "freewheels" that . Start the engine and then turn the air conditioner to the coolest setting, if your automobile does not have an air conditioner skip this step.The car air conditioner will operate the 1993 Chevrolet Cavalier cooling fan should activate within five minutes , the fan motor fuse must be checked first and the fuse condition is good the remainder of the electrical system must be checked.
Step 5:A wiring schematic is needed to further troubleshoot this problem ,which is located in a repair service manual. You may use the wiring schematic to trace the circuit through the fuse and relay components, if everything of 1993 Chevrolet Cavalier tests fine, the fan motor has failed and needs to be replaced. The most common repair is the cooling fan motor failure.
This isn't only theory. You can take these steps into practice.You can deal with the 1993 Chevrolet Cavalier overheating problems yourself.

Installing water pump in 97 cavalier 2.2


Hi. Here's the proceudere on how to replace the water pump of your 97 Chevy Cavalier.


•1
Drain the cooling system. Place a large oil drain container under the drain fitting located on the bottom of the radiator. Turn the drain fitting counterclockwise until fluid is draining from the radiator. Use a pair of pliers to turn the drain fitting if you cannot turn it by hand. Turn the fitting clockwise to tighten it after all of the fluid has drained from the radiator.
•2
Remove the cooling fan. Disconnect the electrical connection from the fan motor. Remove the bolts holding the fan assembly to the radiator support with a ratchet wrench. Pull the fan assembly up from the engine compartment and remove it.
•3
Remove the serpentine belt. Place a wrench over the belt tensioner and rotate the tensioner to release the tension on the belt. Pull the belt off the pulleys and remove it from the vehicle.
•4
Remove the water pump pulley. Place a screwdriver behind the pulley to lock it in place while removing the pulley mounting bolts with a ratchet wrench.
•5
Disconnect the coolant hoses running to the water pump.
•6
Remove the water pump mounting bolts with a ratchet wrench or wrench and remove the water pump from the vehicle.
•7
Clean the mating surfaces of the engine block and new water pump with a towel saturated with lacquer thinner.
•8
Apply a thin layer of RTV sealer to both sides of the new water pump gasket and place the gasket on the new water pump.
•9
Place the water pump against the engine block and finger tighten the water pump mounting bolts to hold the pump in place. Tighten the bolts with a torque wrench to 18 foot-pounds.
•10
Place the pulley on the water pump and install the water pump pulley mounting bolts with a ratchet wrench.
•11
Attach any hoses previously disconnected from the water pump.
•12
Install the serpentine belt. Route the belt over the pulleys according to the routing diagram in the engine compartment. Place a wrench over the belt tensioner and rotate the tensioner to tighten the tension on the belt.
•13
Install the cooling fan. Gently lower the cooling fan in position and install the mounting bolts attaching the fan assembly to the radiator support with a ratchet wrench. Attach the electrical connection to the fan motor.
•14
Refill the cooling system to the appropriate level, start the vehicle and check for leaks around the water pump.

All the best!
