1989 corvette overheating. Put new radiator 160 thermostat. need help

You never use a 160 stat

That was a 1960's thing to do,
when there were no computers

I ran a 160 in my 1965 vette, just to see what
would happen.
I had no problems & built my own motors

Your best to go to a shop that has been around for years
in the same place with the same owner

May want to ask a local vette club for a place they use

I don't know when,why ,etc your issues started or the
vehicle history.

Usually a head gasket,if you loosing coolant

Water pump is eaten up inside

Some engines use reverse flow for coolant,
if you just had work done on it

Need to know that product to work on it.

How much time does it take to replace a fuel pump on a 1989 chevy corvette. How do you do it

About an hour, Open the lid where you put the fuel, there are four screws that you have to remove, remove the lid, pull the rubber boot out and there is the pump sending unit. remove the eight or ten bolts and pull the unit out. replace the pump and install in reverse order. These are the easiest ones I have done. You can do it.

Car shuts down after 1/2 hr. and wont restart till cold

you're water pump is going out and the car is overheating as a safety mechanism the chevy company put a senser that shuts down your car when it gets to a certain temperature to prevent any other damages. A new water pump will fix your problem.

Reverse died, engine HOT, drive lurches

I would have to say that your transmission failed. The Tranmission was trying to lock up and the engine was being forced to labor extra hard and that is what more than likely created the extra heat.

1985 4plus3 tranny

your clutch might be worn, was any of the oil you changed somewhat metallic? Ive heard to check for a worn clutch: pull the car up to a tree, put a tire or some kind of cushion between the car and the tree put your car in its highest gear, give it gas and very slowly let your clutch out, if the clutch is good the car will shut down immediately.
