1996 chevy cavalier 2.4 liter engine is overheating. Water pump should be new, thermostat definitely new. Yesterday it started overheating with the heater on so replaced thermostat and today tried driving...


I am having the same problem. I have read that only a GM thermostat may work aftermarket thermostats dont work in some cases. If the top radiator hose is hot and the bottom is is dramatically cooler, then more than likely, the thermostate is not opening. The other part I dont know yet is how to purge the system of air. Trying to find that out now. Good luck.

Engine temp and heater temp not right.


Take it to another shop, The water pump doen't hold the Thermostate. The thermostate is in the thermostate housing where the end of the radiator hose is connected to the egine. 
There are different thermostate rating to which temprature you'll like your engine running at. Most common would be a 190 thermostate you can get them from 160 up to 220. 
As for the water pump you would know if that failed do to over heating or leaking from the weep holes in it. 
Bring the truck to another shop and have them flush and Antifreeze if it's never benn done and change the Thermostate to a 180 or 190 and should be done every Two years do to waer and tear. Note the 180 runs cooler then the 190 and so on. 
I run mine on 160 since I tow a trailer and the radiator also cools the transmisson oil too. Just for though but you should be fine at 180 or 190.
Good luck and hope this helps.
