Question about 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier
Bought it brand new in 1999. no problems with car ever then in 2005 went straight to hot, before i could get it stopped, sort of coughed & died. mechanic said head was ruined so bought wife new car. kept this one & had new motor built & installed. ran fine for 4 days then showed hot. SO replaced sensor, fan comes on, etc; replaced hoses cuz one did look like it was 'collapsing" a bit. still would go to hot almost instantly. replaced computer module. ran fine a few days then would go from cold to hot in seconds, then on average of 10-15 seconds, cool back down (according to temp gage inside car) checked coolant often & seems coolant is escaping. red radiator light inside car that i've NEVER seen before came on. radiator was reworked when motor was installed. almost everything under hood is new. i now have over $3500 in NEW under hood in a $2000 car. then, this morning cranked up to see what latest might be & before could back out of driveway, check engine light blinked on & off. can ANYONE help? i am in a rural area and cannot afford the expense of taking to a dealership.
Did you cheak the A/C on my car the compresior is going out and if I turn it on it will heat up my car because it slowes down the belt witch dose not alow the water pump to work like it should. sound like the thermostat is lock up or an air pocket in their burb the system and check to see if the thermostat is lock shut you can do that by heating your oven to 230 remove any gaskets and stick it in the oven from their if it open you know that works. If not I would get thermostat that is name falsafe it will cost you about $2.00 more but when it locks up it locks open that will save your car.
