Question about 2006 Chevrolet Equinox LS
SO, I'm not a "car"guy. But I've performed minor work on previous cars, including replacing a few radiators. I recently bought an 06 Equinox, and the darned thing keeps overheating. I've checked all the hoses. No leaks. This SUV has a closed cooling system, with a 15psi release valve on the surge tank. I replaced the cap, because coolant keeps boiling out. This didn't help. I flushed the radiator, pulled it out, inspected it. It looks good. I went ahead a replaced the thermostat. Both fans seem to be working like they should. I can't drive the car more than a mile before it overheats, and boils out from the surge tank! What am I missing here?! Please Help!!!

Flushing the cooling system has its drawbacks. I you needed one freeze plug, you can reasonably suspect the others are surely right close to failure.In this case, starting to fail one at a rime weakest first. Now, as far as the other issues are concerned. What is the question? Sounds like the tazmanian devil had too much time on hand. I don't know the qualifications or integrity of your mechanic, but I do know a reputable, as well asa professional mechanic is not likely to intentionally or even bother to, contribute to these describe issues. Ocassional blue smoke is an internal problem, The AC is an issue in itself, The caalyctic converter is an issue that is too messy, smrlly thing to deal with. Any evisence of how and of what it was gutted? What was repaired or listed as repaired on your invoice? And what state are you in? It appears you may be seeking legal advice and in this forum it would not be an appropriate place to seek it. You may want to refer this to an Attorney for assistance.. Good luck and I hope you reach some resolve on this matter.

Sounds like your radiator fan is not doing it's job. At highway speeds, there is enough air flowing through the radiator to cool it, without a fan. On local streets at slow speeds, the fan is necessary to draw air through the radiator, else you will overheat. Check your fan, either clutch fan or electric fan, to see if it's working as it should.

SOURCE: My 1999 Chevy Malibu is losing the coolant though the overflow hose by the resevior I've had my head gaskets replaced there is no overheating no water oil mix, but my radiator fans arent working I
Sounds like you need to disconnect the Radiators' electric fans and have them tested. You absolutely must have them working, or your car will overheat. Check to see if the Temperature guage is working.
You need to go to a good autoparts store and have them test the fans and charge and test your battery. You may need some sensors to activate the Radiator fans, but you could be running the battery down with shorted cooling fans.
There are also Relays which work with the Radiator fans. The overflow will stabilize once the water gets into where it belongs. Make sure your Thermostat is not clogged with the sealer.
