Question about 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
I have a 2001 monte carlo ss that keeps overheating.I have replaced the thermostat and cooling temperature sensor and did not solve the problem.The fans dont turn on and I have checked the fuses,changed the relays and I can only get them to turn on when I unplug the coolant temp sensor,what am I missing?
Hello. I understand your frustrations as I too own a 2001 monte carlo and have had the same problem...along with several others. My engine temp gauge would show ZERO degrees because of the bad coolant temp sensor. So I replaced it with one from autozone (BIG MISTAKE) The one from autozone was **** and gave the car a different problem. The fans would not run while the engine was running and would run when the engine was off until the battery rundown protector would shut them down. this lasted about 2 weeks during which I had to keep my heater on (in the middle of summer) to keep my car from over heating because my fans wouldnt run. The autozone jerks said "if my temp gauge was working then the sensor was doing its job" and that "there is another problem" Well I finally called the dealership and they told me that autozone is junk and to try advance auto parts and to get the next one up from the cheapest...this is what they use...and NASCAR uses. It was a few dollars more (around $25) Problem solved. However a few months later the cooling fans went completly out..this was due to them experiencing such high temperatures for 2 weeks. I replaced them with ones from a salvage yard for $50. Dont let this happen to you...
