Question about 1988 Chevrolet Camaro
I have a 88 camaro with the 5.7tpi. Since Ive bought the car from a garage, three weeks no issues. Since then, little things at a time are popping up. What's worse, my mechanic discovered there was no thermostat to replace when the water pump went out. But other than that....little stuff.
Recently, I replaced MAF Sensor after I received code 36, reset the computer, drove it a bit, light on again with code 33. just to make sure, did the same steps again. Got the new MAF on, ran good, then being downtown with all the stop and go and high city heat, the temp gauge nearly hit the 'red' with the a/c running. I allowed the car to cool 2-3 hours. drove with ac on and off when it got high near red. Got home, checked my cooling fans, they work, all the fluids, then the code I got again was '36'. I didnt change out a 'burn off' ciruit. where is that on the car and would that help? Also, my a/c clutch is starting to make a grinding squeal. I just recently had it retroed to R134.
id say he knew it would overheat
get radiator checked[ id replace it anyway as its cheaper than new motor & trans if its auto] !!!
thats a lot cheaper & good insurance
also get engine REVERSE FLUSHED to get rid of any buildup in the head & block!
check all welsh plugs aswell & retighten the head bolts to specs becauseof the heat or the gasket could leak!

Sounds like you have some issues. Code 36 is "burn off" which is a relay that heats the wire in the maff to get ride of any dirt that may have entered the maff. This relay replacement will keep the Check Engine light from coming on.
The overheating is not good. The engine should never get over 230. If the cooling fans are working you may want to check that the rad is not somewhat plugged.
If your A/C clutch is slipping, check the pressures in the system to be sure they are not to HI.
