Question about Chevrolet Lumina

1 Answer

My 1999 lumina, 3.1 ltr overheats in a matter of minutes. I don't know whether it's the waterpump or maybe the thermostat.. What is the best way to decypher this problem? The car is 30 miles from my home so I'll have to do the job in a parking lot. I didn't get a manual from the chevy dealership so I am repairing blind. Tom

My car is overheatting and i changed the thermostat/tempsensor/reservoir/waterpump/heatercore

(1)So it's really overheating and not just SAYING it's hot,right?Because the gauge CAN go bad in the dashboard.
Well,you didn't list the(2) electric fan,whether it's coming on or not? (3)And if the fan is working, the only thing left is a plugged radiator on a Taurus.
A plugged radiator is best serviced at a radiator shop or you can buy a new one at Auto-Zone fairly cheap(150.00 or so). (:^) don-ohio

New waterpump new radiator changed sensors and still overheats

Did you change the thermostat? And have you checked to make sure the fans come on? Is the temperature gauge giving you false readings?

My 1999 honda passport overheats when a/c is on. changed thermostat, waterpump, radiator cap. I don't know what else to check

It could be that conditions inside the engine itself is causing excess amounts of heat to be generated, and that the a/c is stressing it beyond that limit. Possibly switch to synthetic oil next oil change, and check what services might be available along those lines and see if the problem persists. Otherwise, the a/c itself might be drawing too much power.

I have a 1999 chevy lumina and it overheats when i am just idling and the ac is on.

This problem can be caused by a faulty cooling fan, lack of coolant circulation thru the radiator ( bad water pump, partially closed thermostat) or a partially clogged radiator. Make sure the radiator and condenser in front of the radiator are not full of dirt and clogging the air flow also.
