SOURCE: HOW DFO YOU DRAIN THE RADIATOR OF 2002 3.4l MONTE

it should have a drain plug on the inner bottom that twist out. If not the bottom rad. hose will be fine to remove. I drain the water, and then run water through it with the hose still off. Replace the plug or hose and put in a cooling system cleaner (prestone) and fill with water. Start the car and let run for until it reaches a normal running temp, keep running for 5 min. urn engine off, let it cool and drain water. I then flush it again with water to remove any rust or gunk left in. I do this until I see good clear water running out. Reinstall your plug or hose and fill with (anti-freeze) be sure to get the right anti-freeze, some take a different color. If you use 50/50, it will take 3-4 to fill or 1 straight anti-freeze with mixture of water until full. Good luck

Check for bubbles coming up in the radiator--signs of blown head gasket. If no bubbles, try replacing thermostat.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5929960-s_thermostat . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

SOURCE: i have a 2001 monte carlo. there is oil in my

Are you sure it is oil and not just old corroded dex cool? Just asking because about the only way to get oil in the radiator is through a bad head gasket or cracked head which will usually cause the vehicle to run poorly. Here is a few pics of what dexcool can become. jsmes1027_2.jpgjsmes1027_3.jpg

Car overheating replaced everything and still overheats


try a pressure test on the radiator while it engine is running.. If your head gasket is broken the compression of the engine goes into the cooling system. If the pressure rapidy increases it would indicate a head gasket problem.

I have a 99 camaro V6. About 3 weeks ago it started running hot. I replaced the thermostat and flushed the radiator and added more coolant. The tempature passes 260 and the fan comes on after like 5...


i have the same problem. it may be a good idea to try and flush all the hoses individually. are you seeing any yellow mustard like gunk on your radiator cap? i took off my water pump and everything seems to be ok with it. here's a few things to check up on. the water pump, the radiator cap may need to be replaced because it may be losing pressure. could be a crack in the radiator, or a soft/week hose. you could take it to a shop and have them do a pressure test to help narrow down the problem.

My 1999 cougar is over heating i have changed the thermostat and the radiator already and the water pump is good but the car is still over heating should i get a coolant flush to see if that clears it up...


Why would you even think about a coolant flush?

You have a new radiator, so all that is left is the heater core
That isn't your problem

You lost all the coolant when you did the radiator & thermostat
So what is there to flush ?

No bottle of doctor do good will fix your issues

Diagnose the main cause

How do you know the water pump is good?
Was it in your hand and still had an impeller that wasn't eaten away?
Was it pumping coolant and the system built up pressure that you
actually tested

Have you tested for combustion gases in case the head gasket is gone?

I Have a 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix, For months now my temperature gauge has been running hot to nearly 260 degrees. The car has never officially overheated although the fans do kick in, In the last few...


What's chances that the temperature gauge or sender itself is wrong?
Is the heat exceptionally hot? What temperature is the heater dicharge when the gauge reads 260?
I think that the sender is not expensive, try that. An auto parts store could get you an inexpensive dial gauge that you might be able to install in place of the sender.

200w cheve monte carlo overheating,changed,radiator,water pump.


Change the thermostat and the coolat resevoir cap.These are the 2 main things for overheating problems. The thermostat sticks and the cap will let coolant escape from the tank, after a couple of trips the engine overheats. Also make sure your cooling fans are coming on. Physically pull the relays and all fuses, as the do lose contact.
