The first indication will be running at a lot higher temperature than normal. have a flow test done on the radiator to determine if the cores are blocked. Do an external check on the fins and if they flake off easy that is another indicator. Check the age of the radiator . If more than 5 years consider it suspect. Check the condition of the coolant and if it is not within the recommended % then it also will be and indicator of core blockage. If the radiator is good and you have a heating problem check other items than indicate a problem

2008 chevy malibu third brake light not working

Stop Lamps
The body control module (BCM) is responsible for controlling the stop lamps. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the BCM will receive a signal from the brake pedal position sensor. The BCM then supplies battery positive voltage to both left and right stop lamp assemblies and to the center high mounted stop lamp (CHMSL). The stop lamps are grounded at G401 and G403. The CHMSL is grounded at G302.
Did you check the blub , is there power ( B+) at the third light ? Is the ground G302 good ? Do you have a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter , do you know how to use one ? Do you know what voltage drop is ? an know how to test it ? Check the stop lamp relay in the under hood fuse / relay box.

In my car RPM needle wiggle up and down when we apply break \r\non stop sign it looks that engine is going to stop & some times engine stop. Other wise it runs very good.

it is either the idle control valve or the egr valve sticking.just say that you have just come off of the interstate and had to stop suddenly,if the engine starts acting like it is going to die or just dies it is most likely the egr valve. good luck let me know if i can help in any other way

Windows and radio stopped working, fuses were good.

you obviously have a short somewhere. unless you are knowledgeable in these areas, you will need to take it into a shop to have them find it. you have fuses, control modes in a few places as well.

hi hurdle

how do you know fuse is good?
sometimes just looking at it doen't prove that
you need to check it with a test light on both blades with either the brake pressed or the signal on. both sides of the fuse should light
