2.2L Chevy Cavalier- temp gauge always redline, fan kicks on as soon as car starts but the car is not overheating. Temp sensor? Temp sending unit? Something else? Help!


check the that wire to the temp sender unit is not shorting out as it will read hot if it is remove the wire and if the gauge goes back to cold then replace the sender unit.

My 96 cavalier 2.2L is overheating all the way in the Red. check gauges light comes on. replaced coolant cap and thermostat and it still overheats! this last time i had steam coming from around the spark...


An engine can be destroyed even after overheating once. If there's steam coming from around the spark plug the head and or block is warped, at very least the head gasket has been destroyed. Take the car to a repair shop immediately, but I'm afraid the damage I'd already done.

Overheating problems.


Two things come to mind: 1) The electric fans are working intermittently, and somehow stop receiving electricity at high engine speeds. With the car stopped, in park, wait till the fans come on, and have somebody else race the engine while you observe the fans to see if they stop. 2) Happened to me once that a mechanic reversed the polarity of the fans, so they would run backwards. At idle it is no problem, the fan just pushes the air outwards, toward the bumper, but at high speed, the fan air cancelled the oncoming fresh air, and the car would overheat instantly.
