SOURCE: 1999 chevy cavalier keeps overheating,

these cars are notorious for that.It needs to be "burped" when your car is cold then open the resivoir(coolant).Start the car .As it warms you will notice the tank level will rise.Do not let it boil over!! when it starts to get warm then turn the car off and watch for bubbles in the resivior.add more coolant as the bubbles come out .repeat until no more bubbles come up.The problem with these cars is that an air pocket forms in the water pump.

I am having the same problem. I have read that only a GM thermostat may work aftermarket thermostats dont work in some cases. If the top radiator hose is hot and the bottom is is dramatically cooler, then more than likely, the thermostate is not opening. The other part I dont know yet is how to purge the system of air. Trying to find that out now. Good luck.

Does it run LIKE it is overheating? (rough, high/low idle, etc.)? Have you recently had work done to the car, specifically the cooling system? Have you checked the overflow/surge tank to see if it is at the proper level? (check when cold). Does your heater work when it is 'overheating'? Possible reasons for your symptoms are (in no particular order) air in the system (improper filling of system when thermostats installed), improper installation of the thermostats, low coolant level, defective coolant sensor or a defective gauge. Blockage in the radiator, or heater core is another possibility.

Where is the thermastat on 04 cavalier located?


You will find the thermostat where the upper rad hose comes to the engine. But this could be the least of your probs!!! The car has overheated several times! Right? Now you likely have a head gasket leaking! This means removing the head and have it machined! This could be very costly! Frankster016
