Does the water pump have flow? do you have electric fans or mechanical fans and do they work? how hot did it get? it may have warped heads from overheating. please give me a little more info.

    okay well also if the system has air trap in it, the thermostat could not be opening. the way you can check both is when the car is warm running and temp gauge is at normal or just above both the upper and lower radiator hoses will be hot. same temp. if they are not wait to see if they do get hot and if not and the temp gauge continues to raise then you have either air in the system or the water pump is now pushing the coolant.

I have a 1995 chevy caprice classic and the low level light for the radiator stays on also the temp meter on the dash stays beyond the cold I've flushed it best i can and refilled it after changin

Find your low level sensor on the overflow bottle. Sometimes they come embedded and molded into the bottle and you just change the overflow bottle, sensor and all. Should be same as most Caprices.

The hoses that are "cut" are silicone and better quality if properly cut. They withstand more heat, but Molded hoses have advantages too.

What I do not see here is any mention of a Thermostat. Lack of one would explain low temp readings. Also if you saying "Beyond the cold" is below the cold mark, then the water temp sensor(sends info to dash) may not work or the dash gauge is broke. When the car engine runs, it should move higher than cold.

You will need proper operating temperature for all the engine controls to work normally and will get better gas mileage.

1995 Caprice classic keeps overheating after changing the water pump and thermostat

the radiator may be blocked, try using a good quality radiator cleaner to see if that helps, if not you might have to get it flushed out by a radiator repairer.....hope his helps......cheers.

After starting my caprice, it doesnt take long for it to over heat and the water begin to boil over. I think maybe there is a plug somewhere in the radiator.

First thing to do is change the thermostat. That will probably solve the problem. If not, make sure the rad fan is working, and then the next thing is the waterpump.

My 1993 Chevrolet Caprice Classic heat is not getting hot

If your radiator is hot You may have a stopped up heater unit.You can try flushing the water sys. with half white vinegar ,half water.Some times that helps. If not you may have to replace the heater unit.That is a job.

I have an 89 Chevy Caprice no heat issue,the only way to get heat is to keep the engine rpms up, would a heater core that is clogged cause this? The engine heats up fine, so i have ruled out the...

Yes a heater core that is slightly plugged will do this.. Also I found once, that there is a restrictor inline in one of the heater hoses looked like a plastic hose connector and It had a large flake of lime that would intermittently block off flow check for this as well..good luck

My 1995 chevy caprice classic has a hard shifting problem between 1st & second gears. Any easy fixes to this?

Not really, unless there is a shift kit in there. Have a transmission shop check it out.

Car heat

Park your unit on a slight incline, start cold w/ radiator cap removed and interior heat on full bore. This will burp or release your air from your cooling system. Add 50/50 until radiator is full. When you replace any good amount of coolant in post 90's vehicles it must fill in that position. You also may have pushed some gunk around, flushing, clogging a water jacket or heater core. Hopefully helpful!!!!

Also do not let tank run low because fuel in tank keeps in tank pump cool. This is why the pump is in the tank.
