    Try replacing the thermostat. A bad one will do that.

I have a 1995 monte carlo ls with a v6 in it and it over heats. I have changed the thermostat, watched both fans come on and off changed the radeator cap. if I pull the cap off after it has set overnight...

There should be a little bleeder usually located on top of engine that you open when the car is running to bleed the air out. If this hasn't been done you may have air pockets trapped. Also check the fins of your radiator and AC condensor to make sure they are not damaged or full of dirt or debris that will restrict air flow. The inside of your radiator may be getting plugged up. You may have a head gasket leak. If a head gasket leaks exhaust into your cooling system it can cause overheating. If you can run your car with the radiator cap off watch for bubbling. If you notice a bunch of bubbles exhaust may be getting into your cooling system.

Replaced thermostat flushed radiator replaced temp sending unit replaced water pump still overheating

Could be a bad head gasket. An auto service center can check to see if engine gases are entering the cooling system. Test is quick and cheap...around $40. Might be a good idea before you continue to replace parts.

Check for bubbles coming up in the radiator--signs of blown head gasket. If no bubbles, try replacing thermostat.

it should have a drain plug on the inner bottom that twist out. If not the bottom rad. hose will be fine to remove. I drain the water, and then run water through it with the hose still off. Replace the plug or hose and put in a cooling system cleaner (prestone) and fill with water. Start the car and let run for until it reaches a normal running temp, keep running for 5 min. urn engine off, let it cool and drain water. I then flush it again with water to remove any rust or gunk left in. I do this until I see good clear water running out. Reinstall your plug or hose and fill with (anti-freeze) be sure to get the right anti-freeze, some take a different color. If you use 50/50, it will take 3-4 to fill or 1 straight anti-freeze with mixture of water until full. Good luck

You have to bleed the coolant system.There are some bleeder screws,with hex heads on them.Hold the bottom nut and gently loosen the top until water and air flow,with the system not running.When the air is not present,tighten back down gently.If the air won`t bleed out,then fill the coolant reservoir over the full mark about 3/4 way full.Make sure radiator is full,and start engine with ac off.Let it run befor it bubbles or gets too hot,turn engine off,and let it set for about 35 to 45 minutes.Check coolant reservoir to see if the coolant level has dropped.It should have dropped,if so repeat until the reservoir stops loosing fluid.The fans should come on,and go off by them selves.When this happens,then the cooling system is perfect.This I hope helps,please let me know the

1998 chevy monte carlo leaking coolant

It's a 99% chance of water pump leak or the housing at the timing chain that the water pump sits on.
Water pumps can and do leak one minute then seal themselves.
A cheap fix most use is go to a 7 lb pressure cap on the rad.
