I would say that A) you had very little coolant(anti-freeze) in the radiator, because steam pressurizes the system so much that it will blow radiator hoses off, apart ect. or B) You have a head gasket problem.
Put everything back together, make sure radiator is filled properly with coolant.
Run engine until good and warm, is the top radiator hose hot ? can you squeeze it, if not you may have a bad thermastat or bad head gasket.
Let me know what you find

Sounds like you have a bad head gasket, Some simple tests at a repair shop can verify this.

No use putting any money into this until you verify the integraty of the engine

On my way home from school my radiator hose busted and smoke was seeping through the cracks of my hood then i had the hose replaced and now my temp bars are all the way up and my car says ac-off what can...


It may have overheated before it blew the hose.
If the engine temp sensor is reading that the engine is hot, the computer will disable the ac since it produces even more heat for the engine.
You would need to find out if the engine is in fact running hot and why.
It could be a sticking thermostat, or the water pump, or the radiator cooling fans or other causes.

I'm BAFFLED with a heater issue. Heat went off in my 1991 CRX SI with no apparent reason. Car is not overheating. Coolant in tank is full and it's clean. Top radiator hose is hot; bottom hose


Check the PUMP, there is apump that pumps the coolant from the radiator into the engine, if its broken you will have that problem.

Car overheated and wont start, does crank over, it blew a radiator hose, replaced it, but still wont crank over


Sorry! sounds like this one is too far gone! If it blew the radiator hose off the engine, then the head gaskets or the cylinder head itself has failed. You will quite possibly need a new engine put in your Cavalier.

Car overheated and blew radiator fluid


you need to rent a coolant system pressure test tool from autozone, o'reily's, or any parts store. cost is $20, you get your money back when you return tool. very easy to use, fill radiator and resorvoir with water because coolant will only be wasted til you repair leak. attach tool to radiator and pressure up to somewhere around 12-15 psi. dont exceed 15 psi. pressure coolant system and look at water pump, radiator and hoses, heater hoses, scan engine.any and all leaks will be revealed.

My upper radiater hose blew n engine over heated. I installed a new hose n replaced fluids. engine overheated again. did not blow though


check the serpentine belt for slipping, the clutch fan, the thermostat(might be stuck closed) or maybe it is a circulation issue, you can check the radiator and radiator cap for defects and sediment buildup.
you might be able to confirm circulation problem if you turn heat on and it doesn't overheat.

Waterpump went out and engine got real hot and blew upper radiator hose replaced waterpump and hose now it wont fire


It is very likely the overheating has blown the cylinder head gasket and coolant is getting into cylinders or compression is leaking from cylinder to cylinder or both, you will need to remove the cylinder head and have it checked for warp-age and shaved flat by a machine shop if ness, and replace heat gasket.
