Question about 1994 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

Car was running fine and all of the sudden the air conditioning felt warm and car temperature gauge rose overheating. Pulled over immediately and then was towed to a shop. They changed the thermostat and new cap on radiator but still overheating. Checked the pressure and radiatior water for carbon dioxide...no indication that there was Carbon dioxide. Mechanicssaid that the pressure was too great to get a good reading... No smoke out of exhaust but have to keep adding water...seems to get air bubbles in the water.

Changed out water pump and thermostat and vehicle runs high temperature what could be issue?


Reasons the Temperature Gauge Reads High

If the temperature gauge reads high, it could mean your engine is overheating. Another reason your reading might be high is you could be losing coolant. A small leak or evaporation may cause your radiator to slowly lose coolant. A third reason your temperature gauge reads high could be because the thermostat is broken. If this is the case, you may need a coolant temperature switch replacement. The last reason the temperature gauge could read high is because of a water pump, or water pump gasket failure. If the water pump is malfunctioning, it may need to be replaced by a professional.

What to Do If Your Temperature Gauge is High

If your temperature gauge is reading high, it means your car is overheating. This is a very serious matter and you should never drive an overheating car. If your car starts to overheat, shut off the air conditioner and open the windows immediately. If this does not reduce the overheating, turn on the heater as high as it can go. If this still doesn't work, pull over on the side of the road, turn off the engine, open the hood carefully, and wait until the vehicle cools down. Never open the radiator cap while the engine is hot - coolant can spray and burn you. Once the vehicle has cooled, take the car to a mechanic right away so they can diagnose the problem. Cars are especially susceptible to overheating in hot climates, like what's common in cities like Los Angeles, Phoenix, Las Vegas, or Atlanta.
The temperature gauge is an important tool in your vehicle that shows the temperature of your engine's coolant. Contact YourMechanic and have your car inspected for overheating if it reads too high, as this can cause serious problems...

Reasons the Temperature Gauge Reads Cold

On most vehicles, the temperature gauge reads cold until the engine has run for a few minutes. If the temperature gauge still reads cold after the engine has warmed up, the gauge may simply be broken. Another reason the temperature gauge could read cold is if the thermostat in the vehicle stays open. With the thermostat stuck open, the engine can be overcooled, causing a low temperature reading. If this is the case, the thermostat may need to be replaced.

Drove through puddle - Battery light came on, temperature gauge all the way up, cold air blowing out of vents


Sounds like it may have blown a hose and you lost all the coolant. IT could also be that the puddle you drove through caused the head gasket to blow. At any rate, this is not going to be cheap.

I have a 2006 Cadillac DTS my temperature gauge goes up and down but the car never overheats. When the needle is in the red the car putters but when the needle fall it rides smooth again


Actually, by your very description of the symptoms the car IS overheating. The temperature gauge should NEVER be "in the red" as this is too hot for the engine. The "puttering" you describe is the engine laboring to stay running in the overheated condition. This is shortening engine life dramatically. It sounds like you may have a thermostat that is not opening completely, or a cooling fan that is not operating correctly. If a fan problem it could be either the fan motor itself or the coolant temperature sensor that turns the fan on. It is imperative that you get this looked at IMMEDIATELY. The engine on your Cadillac has aluminum heads and they are easily warped or cracked by heat. A third problem you could have is a low coolant level. Never trust the sensors in the overflow bottles. If the coolant in the reservoir gets depleted, then the system develops air pockets which cause overheating and erratic gauge operation. If this is your problem, topping off the reservoir and purging the air in the system should clear things up. Be advised, however, you should also be on the lookout for system leaks if this occurs.

The car was driving fine when suddenly the wind screen started fogging up. The air con was ON auto and temp set at about 22 Degs on defrost at the time. So I increased the fan speed to remove the fog. Same...


This is speculation, but the fogged windshield, the noise behind the dash, and the temperature gauge actions lead me to the heater core. When they develop any leak they fog the windshield, and enough fluid loss or an air pocket could explain the temp gauge readings.

could possibly be a head gasket problem. check the oil and make sure the coolant is not mixing with the oil... also thick white smoke out the tailpipe is a good indicator of a bad head gasket

Ive a 1995 Lexus gs300. Its been running fine until today. It has been extremely Cold, and today One of the Hoses Blew off the car obviously water and steam. The hose was fixed by the AA, and on my way...


Trust what the AA says ..

It does sound like you have an airlock .. and the airlock is likely to be in the heater matrix, as opposed to the radiator.

Bleed the heating system: Set your heater controls to hot and fully open. Let the engine work until it reaches normal operating temperature. Check your coolant level to see if it has dropped.

You can always bleed the coolant system by leaving the coolant bottle cap off for 10 minutes whilst the engine ticks over.

It isn't your water pump.

We added freon to the air conditioning, it was running good then our temperature rose a little , then we noticed our oil gauge going up, the car died when the oil pressure hit 120 it was smoking alitlle,...


Are you sure that you didnt put the freon into the fuel line as there is a cap and fitting almost the same as the air conditioning. Check your oil level and check google if there is a low-oil cut off switch on that particular vehicle and if so bypass it to see if it will start. Sounds like an electrical issue more than anything perhaps wires burnt and touching something near the exhaust. Not sure if the two are related.

Sounds like system is low on refrigerant and needs to be checked for leaks - could be anywhere on one of these.
