Question about 1984 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

Overheating (boiling over) Flushed, new antifreeze and thermostat......actually the old one tested ok in pot of water test. In flushing doesn't appear to be any blockage. Someone told me it could be the timing. I have many aftermarket parts. Do they affect the factory timing spec.

Head gasket or IM gasket? overheating, think there's antifreeze on spark plug threads. drained flushed bled system. new thermostat rad cap. still overheating.


Somebody been using tap water in their radiator? The vehicle is old enough to have a lot of accumulated rust and crud in the Radiator which, depending on relative water quality and location of water pump could over pressure the system and have it squirting into overflow. If the threads of the plug have antifreeze on them it's coming from the OUTSIDE not the inside.

Antifreeze boiling over when car is overheatind and Wen its not overheating changed thermostat radiator bled and flushed it changed temperature switch no oil and water mixture No smoke


Check the over flow tank located in front of the passenger side glove box for water or fluid. When driving the car, listen by the glove box to see if you car hear a boiling sound. If you can hear water boiling or moving, check your heater core to make sure it is not plugged or bad. When the car starts to over heat, does the gauge register that it is getting hot? If it doesn't then check the thermostat to make sure it is not stuck open or closed. If its over heating and the gauge is not showing that the car is running hot before boiling over, then the thermostat is defective or not working. Try replacing it again.

We have an 1998 olds intrigue. I have had the radiator flushed new hose, new thermostate put in about a month ago. The car is still overheating what could be the problem


remove thermostat, and see if it still overheats, check thermostat by boiling water, and drop thermostat in and see if it opens, if opens get new radiator!

92' Ford Explorer is running hot. Changed the thermostat, water-pump and flushed out cooling system. The coolant is boiling in the radiator, and overflowing out of the coolant reservoir.


sounds like a blockage like a dodgy thermostat, id test it by boiling a jug and throwing your new thermostat in the boiling water and see if it opens, other than that you've pretty much done it all so id be looking at a blown head gasket. good luck :)

My car is overheating. I just replaced thermostat and recently replaced the water pump. I checked for water leaking but dont see any. What could it possibly be


If the thermostat and pump have been replaced, it's most likely the radiator. They corrode after time. Try flushing the antifreeze (not just draining and refilling it, but flush the system with clear water.) Most auto stores, Walmart, etc. carry the flush kit for very little $$. Once it's flushed, refill the system with the correct ratio of antifreeze.

If the problem persists, then it's most likely gunk in the radiator. Auto shops can boil them clean.

Short of all of the above, overheating can also be caused by a cracked cylinder head. If it overheated too bad at any point, it can crack the head and will continue to overheat regularly. Check for antifreeze in the oil. If there "is" antifreeze or water in the oil, the head is most likely shot (and yes, it will still run that way).

Make sure your thermostat is in good condition.

Overheating engine


Was the thermostat put in backwards? I know this is a silly question, but I've seen it happen. The water pump will fight it if it is. Another thing are the coolant passages, are they flushed out? Also, if that fan clutch is the original one, I would go ahead and replace that as insurance against the water pump breaking.
