Camaro Z-28 temperature problems

I have a Z-28 camaro, the low coolant light has been coming on, the cheverolet dealership told me they could not find what was wrong, and would have to take the car apart to resolve this. Ive had the car there three times insisting they fix it, and now they tell me they have no answer. I normally do not use this dealership, but have moved, and it all started when they repaired something minor that had nothing to do with anything that could interfere with the engine. I cant find a leak, im not sure if my overfow jug is full as normal, have put water into it to test out, didnt work. The car first did this while ideling, and the temp gage was almost up to redline. I turned defroster on hot, it is now blowing cool air. A.C works, everything works. Not running rough. No smoke or sputtering. Nothing except the mystery of the temp gage going up, when i move again, the temp goes right back down in less than 5 seconds, the car is not hot. It seems to be getting worse. The dealership mentioned it may be a cracked block, or head gasket, this was when the low coolant light was coming on, and that was the only symptom. I do not think i have a cracked block ,or head gasket. Im wodering if it is a sensor, or the thermostat.
Also, this car has not had any major problems, other than basic wear and tear on the car, no other repairs have been needed. The thing they worked on was my electric motor for my window control, and the low coolant light has been coming on ever since, maybe two different problems?

I have a 95 camaro and it seems after my car overheated a bit and i had to change the waterpump and thermostat that my coolant level sensor will not shut off. same thing car and air and all systems are good but the light stays on. I'd say the new thermostats with the little pressure relief holes on top may be the problem. I just unpluged mine and it works way better. now It doesn't bug me at all. I didn't try a new sensor why bother.

On my 1995 Camaro 5.7 LTI Low coolant light comes on after car warms up---coolant level is fine and car does not over heat-- runs at about 180 degrees

Since the car does not over heat and the coolant is not low there is a good chance that the sending unit is bad. If that is the case you really don't have anything to worry about. Just be sure to keep an eye on your actual temperature gauge. Those lights are hardly ever right but your gauge is almost always accurate. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. I hope this helps you out.

98 Camaro LOW running temp. I just recently purchased an all original, terrific running 98 Camaro Converible with only 86000 miles on it. Everything seems great and I've been driving it for weeks with no...

I would suspect either the temp guage or the coolant temperature sensor being inaccurate. The new thermostat is probably working good, or else you wouldn't have a very warm heater. If you have electric radiator fans, you might check to see if they are running all th time. Electric cooling fans should only come on when the temperature sensor reaches a predetermined coolant temp, or when the a/c or defroster is turned on. If the fan runs all the time, the engine would not reach normal operating temperature.

1997 camaro z28 fan isnt coming on, coolant is coming out of the radiator cap.. when i drive fast the car runs cool but when i drive slow it starts to overheat, what is my problem

the car is heated at low speed because less air flows at high speed and does not heat because the air flows more, check if the fan is turning on and check if you have good revolution,, check fuses, check the thermostat temperature, clean radiator use antifreeze coolant and finally check the pulley on the water pump with its setting correct ajustment. and finally if you work on the motor over time, verify that the ignition times are in place,

Low coolant warning light stays on.

Bad coolant level sensor in the tank. Look around the bottom of the reservoir and find a plug connection, unplug it and see if the light goes out. I think the tank has to be replaced dont think you get the sensor out. You could try by take the tank off and see if it will come out of tank but I dont think it will.

The low coolant level light keeps coming on on my 1995 Camaro z28. My question is does the car go into a protection mode when this happens or is it just in my head that the car just doesn't seem as quick?

The low coolant level light keeps coming on on my 1995 camaro z28. I have replaced the radiator, thermostat, and coolant level sensor. That I know of, there are no leaks. What do I do?

Replace the low coolant sensor right side if radiator. When you replaced the radiator
they may have installed the old sensor.

I had the same problem.
