You will need to check for the fan fuses to see if they are blown. If you have a blown fuse, the fan may need replacing. The Chevy's have a trend to blow a fuse when the fan goes bad. You can undo the wiring harness at the fan, and if you know how, run 2 wires from the battery to the fan motor harness (one positive and one negative) This will tell you the state of the fan motor. if it runs wired like this and runs quiet, it is good, you have a fuse and or a relay problem, look at the fuse cover for which relay is which and which fuse is which. Good hunting..

SOURCE: I have a mitsubishi lancer 2002. The coolant reservoir tank is empty. Radiator is full. I just need to add coolant to reservoir. Do i add straight coolant or does it need to be a 50/50 water/coolant m
It is best to add a coolant mix. You can get it ready mixed, but try to ascertain if your car now has in it green mix or red mix. It is best not to mix these 2 mixes LOL
If you cannot make out what is in there now, just add demineralised water.

What I'm afraid of is that you've blown a head gasket.... cracked a head... or maybe even cracked your block. This results in too much pressure building up in your cooling system and blowing out your coolant. First of all,though, let's look at the simple things first. Are the electric radiator cooling fan (fans) working?? When they don't work, it usually results in everything running okay as long as the car is kept moving, but overheats when car is sitting still. Check this out.. This is a fairly frequent problem. Also, if you've had an over-heat situation because of a fan not working, you could now also have a cracked head or block problem, caused by the excessive engine heat. I'm not familiar with the vehicle you drive, so I don't know if the cap you said you changed on the reservoir is a "pressure cap", or not. If it's not, then you would have a pressure cap on the top of the radiator that may be faulty... (Note: Don't remove a pressure cap while engine is still hot.) After that, check and see if there might be a build up of bugs at the front of your radiator that might restrict air-flow. Good luck...
