Could be a number of things
make sure your fan is working
is the coolant leaking?
make sure your water pump is operating
check the thermostat
and also yes try a flush
also inspect your radiator cap and the overflow
let me know if you need further assistance

The radiator may be limed up - flushing won't fix that. If that is so, you would have to remove the end caps and rod out the core to break the lime loose and clear it (i. e., take it to a radiator shop). I assume the fins on the outside of the radiator are clean and not all smashed flat.

Do you have evidence of overheating other than what the temperature sensor is telling you? If you can get your hands on an infrared (remote - non-contact) thermometer, see how hot it is at the water pump and thermostat housing.

How to back flush 96 Grand Am coolant system?


Hi Eric, Before you back flush have the pressure radiator cap inspected together with the cooling fan operation. A defect there will result in over heating. To back flush, detach the cabin heater pipes and open the radiator return pipe and adjust the cabin climate control to fully hot. Attach a hose pipe so that water runs opposite to the normal circulation and turn on the flow. Afterwards when refilling remember to open the air bleeder, replace coolant and run water into the system until all air is expelled from the system. Close up and test run. Keep in mind that air in the cooling system will also cause overheating. Regards John

Coolant light come on which indicates an overheating condition


You can never run water in the system, water will boil. You must have a 50/50 coolant/water.

Have the system flushed, the radiator can become restricted from old coolant, the fins have very small ports for flow and can become blocked leading to less cooling.

No thermostat means full flow, so this should not be running hot.

Usually the only way a water pump goes bad is when they leak, they are a direct drive, and the propeller never wears out unless at some point someone had to high of a coolant mixture.

Get the system flushed to clean it and have it made into a 50/50, can't have mostly water, coolant dissipates the heat.

If flushing does not help, the cheapest first thing is a new radiator, or get a new core for it, that's cheaper.

The car is overheating. i wanted to drain the radiator and put new coolant in. there are two valves on the radiator hose. there are no lids on them. are they a release valve of some sort?


sounds like radiator flush points. back flush cooling system before adding new fluids. it will make your cooling system work better and last longer to prevent corrosion.

Engine overheating


The coolant flush on radiator doesn't do any good. Since you have changed all the key components and still gotten overheated, then the root cause of the problem is the radiator. It got clogged up in small tubes blocking coolant flow. No matter how good the water pump is working but the radiator got clogged up, coolant is not circulating therefore the heat from the engine can't be dissipated to the radiator. Replace your radiator, don't even think about rebuild it. It has been used for 11 years. Make sure to have the correct coolant/water ratio to keep radiator life for years. Good luck.
