Coolant light? check the coolant reservior it may just need coolant to be added, there are two sensors one indicates a temperature issue the other indicates low coolant level.

I have a 2001 Chevy Silverado my windows fog up after 30 mins of driving and the low coolant light comes on but I have changed the the water pump and heater core and thermostat please help

Windows fogging up is usually an indication of leaking coolant inside of the truck cab. Its possible you might not have tightened the connections properly for the hoses going into the heater core. (Low coolant light coming on is no surprise, since after some time of leaking coolant near or at the heater core, the level will drop to a point where its low and cause the failure light to come on.). See if you can make a visual inspection of the area near the heater core, you might have to remove some interior panels.

My chevy silverado 1500 2003 is over heating and i replaced the thermostat and the water pump is good the truck cab gets a/c but no heat

If your coolant levels arent drastically low then it could be your getting to much air in the system from a bad head gasket. If those are your symptoms then I have to believe that you are losing some coolant at least.

Thermostat may be to low of a temp causing the over flow bottle to empty to soon. In other words sucking water out of bottle to soon. check water level off and on engine running

I started my 1999 chevy silverado 5.3 liter this morning, 30 mins later i see a puddle underneath the truck and its running hot, its a steady drip. Also the heater has not been working right. Can anyone...

sounds like you have a coolant leak, if coolant is low it will cause both of your symtoms as to where it is coming from, there are many places but common ones are hoses/clamps, water pump or radiator.

I have a 2001 chevy silverado pick-up, regular cab, with a tow/haul option. How much weight can I safely haul on the highway in the bed? GVWR is 6100 lb, 3686 lb on the rear, but what is the curb...

Here is a link to specs for that year model of truck, I would need more info such as auto/manual, and 4x4 or not. Anyway it's an easy chart to read. But technically speaking a 1/2 ton pickup is only rated to carry 1,000 lbs in the bed. I wouldn't personally suggest doing more than that, if you overload the bed you can have trouble steering and stopping. I hope this Helps please rate this thank you

Runs hot when on the road but not at idle

valance ,i assume its the fan shroud cover that goes around the fan,if its that?it may help the situation,was it working ok before without it?if yes,it can be cause by defective fan clutch,poor coolant circulation,like a semi blocked rad.low coolant level,sticking thermostat,defective water pump,or even a worn out drive belt or drive belt tensionner but that would affect charging system too! hope it helps!
