2005 Chevy Impala LS.

The coolant light turns on indicating that the coolant is HOT. I added coolant and it stopped. One week later it turned again and I had to add more coolant.

    Had a problem with my aircondition unit this summer. AS soon as that happened, I started to have low coolant all the time. So would fill and could find no leaks, but still ever week or so, depending on my travels had to add at least a quart of coolant. Is this something easily fixed, or do I need to car shop?

Hi,

This doesn't sound right, a car that is well maintained shouldn't lose coolant. Check if your cooling system has any leaks. Sometimes you can also smell the coolant when driving.

Eitan.

Running hot when car is't in motion


1.check coolant level---must open bleed valve above thermostat when adding coolant. 2. Are fans radiator fans running when car ovrheats & is air comming off of radiator hot? 3. Check/Replace thermostat. 4. There is a plastic elbow that connects from the intakke manifold to the engine block on the passenger side of car that arrre notorioous for cracking / leaking.... 5. The heater core on `05 Impala does not close when heater is turned off so does not benifit overheating by turning heater on.

2005 Impala, when I get to a stop, hot coolant temp message flashes and air gets warm, when I start driving the message turns off and air starts to blow cold again. Any ideas?


You sound like you are low on fluid or your thermosstate needs to be change to proper weather (winter or summer). Check it out. Hope you didn't use pure antifreeze ! 50/50 mix... or premixed.

Low coolant light came on 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette, went out a couple minutes later without adding any coolant. Adding a little anyway after light went out. Now about 1 1/2 weeks later light came on...


If its not low on coolant and the light continues to come on it is the low coolant sensor in the radiator. This sensor is in the plastic side of the radiator and just pops off. These sensors are always a problem and don't always require replacement of the sensor. What happens -especially if you are using red DEX-COOL coolant is that the coolant gets hard and crusty inside the sensor and wont allow the coolant to enter and make contact with the sensor. Simply take the sensor off and blow compressed air or water pressure in it to free it of debris. Easy fix-hope this helps!

1997 2.4L Chevy Cavalier LS; Low Coolant Indicator and Temp Gauge


take the cap off of the radiator (whil engine is cold) start and run the vehicle. keep runnig 30mins after the vehicle is hot keeping notice of the rad fluid level.
keeping the cap off will prevent the pressure build up that woiuld keep the air in the system, keep adding water or antifreeze as the level goes down. this may take an hour or so.
also with the cap off, you will be able to see if your water pump is operating correctly. you will visibly be able to see movement in the rad when the pum is engaged.

Tempature Gauge is not working on my 2001 Chevrolet Impala LS.


Sounds like a bad coolant temp sensor. Do you have a check engine light on?

the best thing to get is the Haynes manual for your car at advanced auto or autozone or somewhere like that and the book will tell you how to take everything apart and put it back. i think the manual is about $16.00
