The C4 Vettes have an assembly in the nose low to the ground that pushes air directly through the radiator. Often times if you you will find it causes an unusual amount of road debis inside the mesh. I cleaned mine with compressed air and it helped quite a bit. I wasn't fully satisfied with the temp consistency until a simple radiator swap however. Cost me $115 in parts and took a half hour to complete. (Fairly simple for a Vette project).

it sounds like the thermostat is sticking and i agree with the mechanic that that should cure the problem.If you still have plenty of fluid in the radiator that rules out a leak and if you had the timing belt replaced then the mechanic should have done the water pump along with the timing belt.So that leaves only one thing and that is the thermostat.

You should probably replace the temperature sensor first, make sure the car is indeed overheating.

If after replacing the temp sensor, and the problem does exist, then buy a flush kit, and back flush the system, it may be clogged.

Check for coolant flow at the Purge line,this is a common problem on the Northstar.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.

It keeps overheating. i dont see any leaks around the engine


Change thermostat.Retop up antifreeze. Open rad when cool ,start engine and see if fluid circulating. If not change thermostat and repeat procedure.if not circulating change water pump. but before you do any of this go to the tail pipe &stick finger on inside edge & smell it , if you smell asweet odor like burnt antifreese, you may have a head gasket blown or about to get worse.

It sounds like your thermostat has gone bad and sticking close, Replace the Thermostat and Antifreeze. When replacing the thermostat, buy a fail safe thermostat so you will not have a overheating problem when the thermostat fails. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
