97 Cavalier overheats when idling..fan not working..replaced thermostat and relay sensor..Fan works when straight wired.


You may have a bad relay. Have you tested it to see if it is working or have you changed it out with a new one?

I hav a 2001 impala and my fans are not coming on what is it? Also where is the cooling sensor located?


the first thing to check is the cooling fan relays under the hood. replace those and it will more than likely solve the problem. the temp sensor is generally located near the thermostat housing.

Temp.gauge not working and the fan runs constant with poor fuel economy.


The most likely cause is due to the radiator fan constantly running and the engine not getting to operating temperature, thats why your temp gauge isnt going up, check all related wiring to the cooling fan and make sure there no bare wires that could be causing a short to ground causing the fan to constantly run, secondly check the fan relay, if all of that checks out check the coolant temperature sensor because the information from that sensor tells the computer when to turn the fan on and off, if the sensor is bad it could be telling the computer the engine is hot when in fact its not.

2001 Chevy Impala code P0118 what does this mean? I already changed the sensor and the thermostat. Still overheats


The coolant sensor is bad,change it out,and bleed the air out of the cooling system,the cooling fans should come on on there own,and go off on there own,this is with the ac off.When the cooling fans do this,then it is cooling down correctly.If this was helpful,please rate,by the way,the overheating is most likely from the cooling fans not coming on,this is the reason,thank you,and please rate.

If you have done this already,then bleed the cooling system,this is all you lack,just get the air out of the system,two bleed ports,one on the thermostat housing,and one on the engine near the water pump,just bleed them out as the car warms up,the thermostat bleeder last,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.
