First thing check your oil level. OK check coolant level and condition, make sure your not loosing fluid or have any build up. OK from my experience this year Chevy there Is a cooling fan module that is dealer item only. It always goes bad and it is inpossible to replace the relays inside. It location is near driver head lamp assembly underhood. Easy to remove and replace Goodluck

What does temperature gauge on the dash show? Is it up in the red ?Are the electric cooling fans coming on ? Is the coolant level ok in the overflow bottle ? Had a 2005 Cavalier that had a bad cooling fan relay , came back a year later the cooling fan was bad . The engine cooling fan system consists of one cooling fan and one relay. The relay is powered by the battery positive voltage circuit and controlled by a switched ground from the powertrain control module (PCM).Could also be water pump

    I had a 99 Cavalier and a clogged Catalytic Converter caused it to overheat very quickly to the point where the manifold glowed red. It's worth checking.

Audi A6 2001 quattro 2.8 mysterious over heating


Yes, replace the thermostat. Then you need to 'burp the coolant system'. Your car has all the hallmarks of air in the system, especially a heater that is cold. This is because there is no water in the heater matrix. This is why it overheats. The system must be full and with no air to circulate correctly through the radiator.

Burping involves the following steps.

Remove the lid to the reservoir, remove the radiator cap, fill the radiator to the top, turn heating on full blast, start engine and get to operating temperature, keep topping up. Squeezing the radiator hoses helps. The level will rise and then drop when the thermostat opens. Top up when bubbles stop and the level becomes constant. Put radiator cap on, top up the reservoir and put the cap on that.

Only 2 parts remaining are the thermostat and waterpump. Always start with the thermostat when diagnosing an overheating problem. If the car is overheating constantly under all conditions and coolant is backing up into the reservoir, it's very likely to be the thermostat. If it only overheats at low speed or idling, it's more likely the waterpump.
