    Thanks again.....By the way, I also found that the Fan Motor resuvoir was almost dry....I added about $5.00 worth of Power Steering to the Resurvoir (per Manual) and the fan went full speed....No more overheating. If others of you have a fan motor resurvoir Or Coolant sensors please check and correct.

Is the coolant system being pressurized? I'll bet the head-gasket is beginning to fail. If your lucky it's a bad water pump...but I'm voting for head-gasket.

Have you noticed if the fan that is normally always on when running the AC comes on during this overheating or is it quiet? You can listen to the noise it (should) make by turning on the AC and kind of recording the additional sound of the fan.
If the engine is hot and the AC is off, that fan should be running or at least it is set up that way in most cars.
If it isn't turning on to increase the air flow over what the other fan produces, then the temperature sensor has probably failed.
For the sake of your wallet, I hope the first answer is too pessimistic then that is a fairly expensive repair whereas the thermal switch/sensor is fairly cheap and quick to replace.

Infinity q45 2002 the engine is shaking


If your car is shaking while it's on but not actually moving, then it's likely not the tires. This usually means there is something broken in the engine, such as the radiator fan or engine mounts. Fuel system issues can also cause the car to shake even while standing still.

Overheats ive tried the obvious solutions and it still overheats any suggestions


note if it overheats on the freeway or in city driving. If it overheats soon after you leave the house then in has to be the thermostat. If it overheats at city driving where there are lots of stop and go driving or while you are parked with the motor running, then check the radiator fan function properly. If it takes a while to overheat and tend to do it when driving on the freeway, it is a clogged/dirty radiator. If it looses coolant due to a leak, then it will also overheat. The least likely cause which don't even pertain to newer car is a retarted timing. A retarted timing causes a car to loose noticable loose of power accompanied by overheating. A retartded timing is usually common in older car where timing is adjustable by turning the distributor. Your car is exempt from this.

My car is a 2002 Pontiac Grand am and started to over heat every time i drive it what could it be i replaced the thermostat still over heats can any one help?


if it overheats at freeway speed, its a dirty radiator(flushing it usually don't help but you can try) If it overheats it traffic, then it is the automatic radiator fan(usually driven by electric motor). On some ocation an overheating is caused by retarded timing, but very unlikely on your vehicle since it is computerized.
