Question about 1994 Chevrolet Caprice Classic

2 Answers

I've taken her to the shop twice in the past 2

I have a 1996 Chevrolet Caprice Classic. I've taken her to the shop twice in the past 2 weeks and they say nothing's wrong. The temperature meter stays too far to the right, almost to the orange "hot" spot. What could be wrong? I even looked under the hood myself last night and the engine was so hot that I couldn't touch it, but the tank that holds the engine coolant was, so I check that this morning and there's about 2 inches of fluid in there. Yes, I'm a girl.

Could be one of the cooling fans. Turn your A/C on while hot and check to see if both cooling fans fans are running.

It could be that the thermostat is not opening to alow flued to cerculate through the whole coling system, when u start the car the thermostate stay's closed to healp it warm up faster, it open's mecanicly at a pre set temputure, if it doesent open the water pump can't cerculate the collant and the engin will run hot but might not over heat untill pushed hard while pulling a hill or a full load of friend's, it's normaly a cheap thing to replace, and the shop shoulden't charge more than a couple hour's labore on that car to do the repair! hope this healp's

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.

I have a 1994 Chevy Caprice LS and the fan motor does not work. How do I repair?

First you need to let the engine run until it gets past operating temperature.With the fan blower harness unplugged use a multimeter and probe the harness on the red wire.You should have 12 volts,The other wire should have negative ground.If the voltage checks out ok then you have a faulty fan motor,If not then you have a electrical issue.
