Overheating


Odds are that the thermostat is stuck in the closed position. Replace it with a new one with a new gasket. Its easy to do and will cost around 10 bucks. Also watch the exhaust to see if it is making a lot of steam and dripping greenish water. If it is then you have a more serious problem like a blown head gasket or cracked head. Don't continue to drive with a overheating engine because it can cause the head to crack or warp.

First check that the thermostat was installed correctly. It will not work properly if it was installed upside down. If this is the original radiator, it most likely is plugged up with deposits and corrosion. It needs to be replaced with a new one.

My 01 grand am gt is overheating the cars heat will only blow cold air and alot of thick white smoke comes out of the exaust


White smoke is a sign of burining antifreeze. When heater is not blowing warm air, that is a sign of faulty heater core.
No power, coolant loss, overheating, is sign of headgasket leak.
Double check your thermostat as well.

1999 Pontiac Grand Prix Overheating


I had trouble with overheating on my 2000 Grand Am, The dealer could not even resolve the issue,(they wanted to replace the intake gaskets)...I knew that was not the issue, no air leaks or water leaking there; so I sit down to think; what are the causes of overheating. Thermostat sticking - nope not it, water circulates, Water leak - nope not it, has water stays until it gets too hot and goes out overflow, fans working - yep...hummmm the only other thing I could think of was losing of water pressure, yep that's it - the cap on the coolant tank was going bad, got a new cap ($8.00) replaced the old one and no more trouble going on 6 months now.

Hope this may solve your issue.

1999 Pontiac Grand Am Overheating


It is probably the problem. To make shure that need to change the gaskets, one of the symptoms use to be thet the temp rises when you are running at speed 50+ average, where is supposed that the car gets a lot of air due by the speed and nobody thinks that will be overheated.

Overheating and A/C problems.


If you get cold air when the heater is on, you have lost quite a bit of coolant. Now the question is what caused you to lose your coolant.

As long as you didn't drive around with your engine overheating, your engine should be fine. I think you would know if you had damaged your engine.

When the engine cools, fill your cooling system, start it up and check for leaks or overflow. If the only water your see is from the overflow when the engine starts to overheat, then it very well could be the water pump or thermostat. Chances are the thermostat will need to be replaced anyway.

If this doesn't solve your problem, write back.
