I have a 2000 chevy venture van with a 3.4 v-6. I recently replaced the radiator, water pump and thermistat and refilled the system, but it is still overheating. I was told to "bleed" the system...

two quick thoughts on this, is the thermostat in correctly? (copper colored end into the
engine block). And second thought is on some vechicles it may be possible to route
the belt incorrectly. Make sure that the overflow tube is correctly attached to the overflow tank as this will cause the fluid to dump on the ground and cause an air pocket
to form in the block. hope this is useful.

Hello, Can you help me? I have a 1993 Chevy Lumina that is overheating when I stop ex. long traffic lights, letting it run while I go to the mac machine etc... once I start driving again its fine. Can you...

Sounds like the cooling fan is not coming on .. could be a bad fan motor or relay .. If you can check it yourself you can try to power the fan up directly and see if that is the problem.

Over heating on gauge, both fans on rad.

I would say check your coolant level, and change your thermostat. And see if it is high fans or low fans when they come on. There is a fan control relay down on the drivers side frame right under the air box that goes bad too if your fans arent working quite right to check if all else.

Where is the thermostat cant find a repair manual for 97 Sportage ..need to know where the thermostat is located

just follow the top radiator hose toward the engine. that metal housing that the radiator hose hooks up to has the thermistat under it take off the two bolts and change out thermistat.refill with coolant then run for about a half hour to warm up enough to open thermistat, then top off with coolant at the radiator cap.leave cap loose during this operation so that no pressure will build up in radiator.if unsure squeeze upper rad. hose it should easilly compress if stiff pressure has built up so dont open the cap. let cool then top up coolant

Sounds like a headgasket problem.
If this is the 3.4 liter v6, they are good for the rear headgasket being blown. This lets combustion gases into the cooling system, and causes the coolant to overflow the tank.
