Question about 1997 Chevrolet Malibu
MY 1997 CHEVY MALIBU KEEP OVER HEATING
Blow out the radiator core from the engine side with compressed air to remove bugs and other debris. Make sure the cooling fan comes on when the engine gets to operating temp. If the car car has AC, turn it on which should start the fan immediately. If no fan action, try to turn the fan blade(s) which should turn easily with no noises. Check the fan fuse and fan relay. If the fan(s) come on fine, check the coolant level in the radiator core--it should be right at the top. Check the seal on the cap and replace it if it is decayed or damaged. Make sure the reservoir bottle is filled to the line and the connecting hose is in good shape. It is possible that the thermostat is sticking and not opening fully. Also, check the intake and outlet hoses to and from the radiator for firm condition without decay, collapse, or other damage. A hose can sometimes peel away a portion of the hose interior which can cause blocking. Hope some of this helps!
