First i would check to make sure cooling fan is coming on if not check fuses.if good then check to see if its getting power and a good ground to fan. if it is the fan motor is bad. if not you my have a radiator coolant temp sensor not working right (not sending power to fan) but that sensor has to get power from The cooling fan relay... If the fan comes on. You need to have the cooling system pressure checked for leaks any air in system will cause the gauge not read right .It reads coolant not air if that ok there is another temp sensor just for the gauge it my be faultly it that ok a bad ground or faulty gauge. And make sure thermostat is good hope this helps

MY 95 FIREBIRD 3.4 ITS OVERHEATING AND THE OIL PRESSURE IS UP TO 80. REPLACED THERMISTAT STILL OVERHEATES AND OIL STILL GOES TO 80.DAN


Suspect compromised radiator.(I'm basing this on the presumption that it overheats while driving or standing. If only while standing, the radiator fans may not be working as they run to move air through the radiator when car is still during idle or at stop lights, etc. If overheating only while standing, then its the fans or thermostatic switch that controls them.)

If overheats while in motion, check exterior of radiator for being clogged with debris or if the metal fins (like aluminum foil between solid oval tubes in which coolant flows) are not corroded.
If exterior is okay, then the interior may be partially plugged up. Have the system flushed, using a reverse flow through the radiator.
If it were me, I'd replace the radiator and get it over with and then put in all new coolant.

Good Luck

If you smell steam/water/antifreeze inside the vehicle, then most likely you have a heater core issue. If it is more 'overheating' smell outside of the vehicle, it could be overflow container leaking on hot parts, leaking hose, radiator leak, etc.

From your description of symtoms it sounds like you have a bad water pump. If the coolant is not circulating properly you will have a heating problem. Sometimes even a new thermostat can stick and cause the engine to overheat. I have seen them fail in as little as a week after they were installed.

I had the same problem and traced it to the joint between the plastic bottom and the metal body. This is a common fault, you would new a pressure test to confirm.
