Question about 2006 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

My 2006 chevy impala overheated a month ago & I put antifreeze into the reservoir, it didn't overheat for a month. 1 month later it overheated & cut off. The mechanic changed the thermostat & flushed the system. Now I have a leak & don't know where its coming from. Can anyone tell me if stop leak would help!

Stopleak can work. But if the mechanic that installed the parts were to use a Radiator pressure tester, he would easily find the leak and fix it correctly. If this leaks after he worked on it, he still has work to finish.

Did you replace the thermostat as well? That could be your problem. Also make sure your radiator and reservoir are full.

How are you adding coolant, why, and how is the engine overheating ?
It could be that you have a blown head gasket and the engine is burning the coolant out the exhaust.

"The car didn't overheat" you may have a blown head gasket, also if it sustained heat for a prolonged time , the head may have warped. Check coolant level.

Car overheats, losing antifreeze...the overflow coolant reservoir leaks out onto the ground when I try to put antifreeze in there - so could this cause my car to overheat? I have had the antifreeze drained...


Hello, if your car has a blown head gasket and exhaust is entering the coolant system, it will continue to run hot until it is repaired. Using pure antifreeze will make it worse. It should be at least 1/2 water. If the coolant reservoir didn't leak you could probably drive a few more miles, but not many, before it overheats again. All that is doing is giving you a little more capacity. If you continue to run the engine hot you are going to do more serious damage to it.
I suggest you have the head gasket replaced. That stuff you put in there seldom works, and if it does work, it's only temporary.

I hope this helps.

Hi,
Am trying to understand the problem, but it really needs some details, like when the car stops( engine running ) the temperature cools down?

I need to put coolant into my 2006 Chevy Impala. The reserve is almost empty & I believe that is why my check engine light is on, is that accurate? What type should I put in?


Add the coolant. but this is not why that light is on. Have the codes checked and repost. use the green antifreeze that will mix with all of the antifreezes.

Have someone take a look at your lower intake manifold. I had the same problem and found out there was a leak there and had to replace the gasket, which is very common for this vehicle.
