When should i do my first tune up?

Hello! Did you just buy the vehicle or have you owned it since 2005? If just purchased I'd do it now...Change the following: spark plugs, PCV, air filter, fuel filter and spark plug wires...From any major auto parts store buy a can of SeaFoam and pour it in the gas tank next time you fill...Also purchase a radiator back flush kit (cost is under $10)...Instructions are on the box...Use 50/50 antifreeze and fill the remainder with distilled water...
If your the original owner and haven't done any of the above now is also the time...Then, do it again in 50,000 miles or two years...Which ever comes first...

There exist many schools of though on what I just listed, but experience is a great teacher. Preventive maintenance saves you money, especially at the pump. PS...Avoid after market air filters that are oiled; they may ruin the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor...Guru...saailer

My 2005 chevy monte calro has been overheating it has hot coolant on dash but fluids are cold, goes off when applied gas hard to get fluids pumping, heater doesn't work and recently replaced radiator and...

Check the thermostat, if it isn't opening when engine warms up, the coolant in the engine will overheat and make pressure in the cooling system but the fluid in the radiator will still be cold.

Changing antifreeze

remove petcock on bottom of the radiator. Then drain all the antifreeze. Then flush if necessary until clear plain water pours out. Then replace petcock and pour in 50/50 mixture until the radiator looks full. Then start and run the car with radiator cap off. It is also good to burp the top radiator hose until coolant level goes down, then keep doing this until the unit is completely full.
