Is coolant flowing through the radiator? Possible water pump, radiator blockage, or air flow to/through the radiator blocked or restricted. When the fans come on is there warm air coming from them?

Good Luck

    If the system is flowing the proper amount of coolant and air it should not overheat. Try checking the radiator hoses. In the past i have heard of the radiator hose being sucked closed by the water pump. It sounds like there is some sort of resriction or blockage.



    Hope this helps

Monte carlo blows cold air and overheats


It really runs hot within a minute of starting ?
An engine that runs hot in a few minutes is often having problems with the water pump or a blockage in the cooling system. The thermostat does not open until 195 degrees which takes 5 or 10 miles of driving.
During that time, the water pump should be circulating coolant in the block and the heater hoses.
A leaking head gasket should be putting extra pressure into the cooling system, and-or dumping coolant into the cylinders which would come out the exhaust pipe. But it should still take a few minutes for the engine to reach the boiling point of 240 degrees.

Change the thermostat and the coolat resevoir cap.These are the 2 main things for overheating problems. The thermostat sticks and the cap will let coolant escape from the tank, after a couple of trips the engine overheats. Also make sure your cooling fans are coming on. Physically pull the relays and all fuses, as the do lose contact.

LOW COOLANT LIGHT COMES ON SOMETIMES AND TEMP GUAGE SHOWS ENGINE GOING TO OVERHEAT. HEATER GETS COLD. IS IT THE THERMOSTAT?


There may be a thermostat problem, but your symtoms indicate low coolant level. When coolant is too low, it will not circulate, so you get no heat in car, and the coolant remaining in engine block overheats because no cool fluid coming in.
You need to fill the system up properly then look for leaks.
With cold engine, open radiator cap. Fill with antifreeze directly in radiator. Start engine, top up rad if level drops. Put heat control on Hot. Fan on low, heat on high. Gently rev engine and top up rad as needed. IF as engine heats up, it starts kicking fuild violently out of radiator, then the thermostat is bad. if not, then recap radiator, top up overflow bottle and you're done. Look under car for any sign of leaks. Steady dripping indicates a leak, then address that.

My 2005 chevy monte calro has been overheating it has hot coolant on dash but fluids are cold, goes off when applied gas hard to get fluids pumping, heater doesn't work and recently replaced radiator and...


Check the thermostat, if it isn't opening when engine warms up, the coolant in the engine will overheat and make pressure in the cooling system but the fluid in the radiator will still be cold.

95 monte carlo 3.1 cooling fan comes on at 3/4 temp, when the coolant temp sensor is disconnected both fans run strongly until car is shut off, but when its connected only 1 fan will come on at 3/4 temp


to check both fans work at high temps put a sheet of card over the rad to block off airflow and run engine till hot,keeping an eye on when they both start (one is set at a lower temp than the other),if the second fan dont start when the engine is really hot THEN you have a problem.....

How much coolant do I need in the tank. I can't see the cool or hot marks/lines on the tank and my hot coolant warning light is on and the cvar is pegged at the high temp mark


When in doubt make sure it is at least halfway filled. The tank is only there to allow for expansion, 90% of the coolant is in the engine block and the radiator, so overfilling the tank leaves no space for expanding liquid and you end up with a burst hose. Problems with overheating are because of low coolant, inoperative fans(temp will come down while driving at speed) Faulty pump : it'll overheat quickly and stay hot even while driving. Clogged radiator : same as a faulty pump. Stuck thermostat : engine will be boiling while the radiator is relatively cool.
To clean out the tank use a bottle brush.

1995 Monte carlo both fans don't work and it runs hot help put new thermostat in and fan motor now what


Try unplugging the coolant temperature sensor and see if the fans come on.If they do then the coolant temp sensor needs to replaced. The sensor is located in the intake manifold by the upper radiator hose.Here is a link to provide a general location http://www.greatautohelp.com/sensor-location/3400.html

2002 monte carlo overheating


Better make sure the fan works. There is a switch on the radiator that turns the fan on when it gets to a certain temperature. It could be the fan or the switch. Your thermostat is not your cap, it's in a different location. (Usually at the engine end of the upper radiator hose) Get the leak check! A good garage can pressure test the system to see what leaks you might have.
