Question about 1984 Chevrolet Chevy
Just a few things that can cause an auto to run hot. First check to see if your radiator is hot also,, if it is cold or even mildly warm your coolant is not circulating. Three things can cause this. 1. Thermostat not working. Take old one out (located where top hose out of radiator connects to engine. Usually held by two bolts.) Take it out and put hose back as it was and run engine. If it stays cool replace with new one. They are mostly cheap. 2.Leak in coolant system. Check for leaks, even a small one will cause it to over heat since most systems are pressurized. 3. Lastly, if those don't work it will be your water pump. Needs to be replaced by machanic unless you are very handy. Hope this helps.
