Pontiac sunfire overheating


hello! I had the same problem with my 2000 Pontiac Sunfire... there might be one of these 2 problems with it.... maybe the Heater Core is jammed and the coolant dosen't flow thru the engine to cool it off, or the water pump is defective.... does the heating works or not? if yes, the water pump is defect, if not, the heater core is jammed, try a ''radiator hose cleaner'' (sold in Napa's or Carquest..) it will act as a kind of ''decloaker''.. if works, good! 15$ solution... if not, replace Heater Core... ~150$

Could be a bad temp gauge . Is the coolant surging inside the cooling system ? Does it have a radiator cap ? Have you replaced it ?

Easiest to hardest....1. Check coolant level, 2. Replace thermostat, 3. Flush system, 4. Replace water pump (do you have over 100,000 miles?), 5. Replace radiator. Also, Is it actually getting hot or is the temp sending unit bad?

i'm not being smart, but do you know for sure you are installing the thermostat correctly? the thermostat is there to slow the water flow down long enough for the water to obsorb the heat .also is the cooling fans operating ?do the fans come on at around 210 degrees?is the radiator grill clean? lower spoiler intact? does the engine over heat at highway speeds or while idling? are there any codes?is the engine running lean? possible fuel filter stopped up.fuel injectors dirty. let me know

Can't get coolant flow after changing the thermostat


You will need to Change the Water Pump. It is still pumping, Just not enough to get the Thermostat to Open.
