The radiator fan is not blowing.
When you drive, there is enough air flow through the radiator grill to keep the temp down.
When you are idling, there is no airflow.

Not likely, but could also be the thermostat installed backwards.

2001 monte carlo ls 3.4 overheats!! replaced everything


You have to bleed the air out of the system. There are 1 maybe 2 bleeders on the front of the engine on the cooling system bypass pipe one near the upper hose the the othe on the drivers side of the pipe. They are brass with a small bleeder valve in the middle. Get the car up to temperature and take your time to allow all the air out. Refill cooling system after it cools. Hope you didn't do any damage running it hot.

97 Monte Carlo LS getting hot while driving then cools off when letting off gas


have a coolant pressure test done. Have the radiator cores checked for blockage. Sometimes when an engine has sat for a period of time, rust and scale form in the water jackets of the engine. ON running ,this breaks away and blocks the cores of the radiator Other times the old motor tolerates a partially blocked radiator when a relative new motor needs all the cores free to maintain the temperature.

Is you're thermostat opening properly? If not, then that would explain the "fullness" of your radiator.

Monte carlo 01 runs hot, says low coolant but its full


Thermostat is probably stuck closed... Run the car with the cap of the bottle or radiator and see if it starts to circulate when it gets hot... Be careful though because it can over heat and have no coolant flowing.. And also watch for spewing fluid if it get hot at the place you took the cap off.... The low coolant could also mean the radiator is not full but the bottle is... Check for a restriction from the bottle to the radiator.. If you see a sensor on the bottle it could be bad... But That won't cause it to over heat. It'll just say low coolant because the switch is stuck.
Also does the fan come on while it's getting hot?
If not that could be the reason for the overheating.. And the coolant level sensor could be bad telling you it's low
Cap off look for circulation of antifreeze.
At the same time before it over heats make sure fan is coming on. No fan on? Fan fuse or relay could be bad... Also maybe a wire.
No circulation? Thermostate stuck or restriction in coolant hose...Line... Radiator..... And worse case scenario the water pump might be bad.
The low level I wouldn't worry about. Find out why it's over heating first.

sensor is in the coolant jug on right side of car. you will see a plug on bottom of tank this is sensor. A lot of times you can smack the jug a few times and this will jar the sensor it gets stuck sometimes. or pull off tank and clean out.
