1991 camaro rs overheating

My 1991 camaro RS is overheating. all coolant STREAMS from underneath car between motor & transmission. just had my car repaired (ha!) for $1100.00--$287 for new parts & $815 for labor!! the radiator was flushed, replaced radiator cap & upper & lower radiator hoses, spark plugs & wires &1 freeze plug on side of motor. electric cooling fan no longer works, tachometer on longer works, catalytic converter "gutted out", a/c only blows warm air & heater only blows cool air & coolant streams out from underneath car as soon as you fill radiator, car runs rough & occasional blue smoke from exhaust pipe when car is started. could this be from bad freeze plugs, blown head gasket, thermostat? please i need your help! so called mechanic says the leak is a new problem but from nothing he repaired just 4 days ago!!

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.

Replace the thermostat first. when engine cool check engine oil if it look like milk shake. you got a blown head gasket.

Leaking alot of water /coolant


You have answered your own question almost. You will need to jack the car up and inspect everything being that its 91 camara, there is defintely enough room to inspect everything. You either have a hose leak, a radiator or water pump leak. Only inspection will find that out. Thank you,

1991 camaro overheating


Possibly a bad hose to the heater core or the heater core could be plugged,especially since you describe getting no warm air from the heater and coolant flowing between motor and transmission,the cooling fan could be a bad thermo switch or relay,as far as the freeze plugs most likely not,the coolant would flow out of a bad freeze plug as soon as you started filling it,you should go back to your "mechanic" and demand a refund,I'd say demand a repair but I don't think this guy can fix is own hair,it sounds like he was hoping and groping for a solution,at the very least file a consumer complaint with your states attorney general and cosider a small claims suit.
