Start affordable way first change your thermostat and make sure the fan in the motor is turning on when runing,worse case your head gasket blew and the only way to see is if its mixing oil and antifreeze and your car is spewing white smoke out your tail pipe if you want to know if its ur head gasket you would have to do compression test to look for leakage

My 1999 Chevy Malibu runs hot? It started when it overheated. We changed the thermostat, then water pump, then temp sensor gauge and the temp gauge goes high but only when the heater stops blowing hot...


Air pockets will make the guage do that, and also cause your heat to come and go. Also, a poor radiator, as in rotting, or plugged up, will cause high temperature issues.

My 1999 Chevy malibu keeps overheating even when the heater is on what is the problem?


You may have a radiator leak. Or your coolant level is low. Using the heater is not a solution to an overheating vehicle. You can usually smell coolant and see the leak. Often times a gasket can leak mixing engine oil and coolant, decreasing effectiveness of both sytems. Check color of fluids make sure the cooloant is viscus and not sludgy.

Also check coolant fan electric connections and fuses. The fan really cools down the engine moreso than coolant. It should kick on when your engine reaches a certain temp. If it does not the vehicle will overheat.

Leaking fluid in my 1999 Chevy Malibu


When they changed the water pump and the leak stopped then the water pump was bad. If they changed the water pump and was still leaking then then it was not the water pump. 
Where is the fluid leaking from, if there is white smoke coming from the tail pipe then good chance is that the head gasket is gone and pull the dip stick out to see if there is antifreeze mixxing with the engine oil.
It's common that the 3.4 V6 has intake manifold gasket go bad and leak. Check all the heater hose first, and try to find out where the leak is coming from.
Good luck and keep me posted, glad to help you as much as i can.
