These 3.1 V-6s have an issue with the intake gaskets leaking. Look at the front and back of the engine to see if there is water coming out there. The repair takes about 3-4 hours(professionally) and the better part of a day if you doing automotive as a hobby. If you determine that the gaskets are whats causing the leak, let me know and I will send you instructions on how to repair the problem.

I have a 2002 monte carlo if i take out the thermostat completely will i still get heat in the car

After a while, yes.

The thermostat is to keep the engine warm (as it runs more efficiently warm). Once the engine gets to operating temperature the thermostat opens and allows water to go to the radiator. The heater sometimes comes directly off the engine block.

To test a thermostat, put it in a saucepan and cover it with cold water. Bring the water to the boil. If the thermostat is working, it will open.

My 1997 Monte carlo is still overheating after we changed the thermostat and water pump what othernproblem is causing it to overheat

Car must use red coolant or yellow generic designed for newer than 1995 vehicles. Why you wonder - Red is designed for 272 Degees of total fluid heat and since newer vehicles are Aluminum Motors / Cylinder heads it is required to have a Red / Yellow anti - freeze coolant mix to carry - transfer heat out to radiator to be cooled by wind or Temp sensor turning on radiator fans . The older Green coolant is only good to 230 degrees before boiling over . This green in older engines worked because Iron / Steel engine blocks - cylinder heads Absorbed Large amounts of Heat . 1995 and Newer Aluminum does not absorb heat and will Warp Block - Heads if not kept cool ergo milky looking Oil - Coolant . Be sure to get cocentration to 50% REd or Yellow Coolant to - 50%% Water , this also helps fight heat and will give you good winter proction at cold temps.

Looking at the back side of the old water pump it seem as though the direction of the pump is wrong,I think it should run with the cupped side,pushing the water.I replaced the pump because it was...

When an engine overheats, the scale and debris that resides in the engine water jackets, comes loose and is carried by the water into the radiator coming to rest in the top tank. This blocks off some of the cooling tubes and causes the engine to run hotter than it should, perhaps even boiling. Have the cooling syatem (engine plus radiator) reverse flushed st the radiator specialists. Have the thermostat checked and corrosion inhibitor added to the water. (or proprietry coolant added).I can give you the procedure for this if you want to do the work yourself.
