My 99 alero keeps overheating but the coolant is full, and when i shut it off it starts gurgling what is wrong


Is the thermostat opening at 195 degrees ? Does the radiator fan come on at 220 degrees ?
The gurgling noise is usually air or coolant moving around in the system. If the engine is very hot this noise can be normal.

Cooling system


Raise the car front end as high as possible with a floor jack, fill the coolant tank to the top, run the engine until it reaches just short of overheating, shut it down and run water over the radiator, this will burp the air out. Repeat as needed. Don't let the coolant recovery tank run dry during procedure.

YOU CAN CODE SCAN CAR TO SEE IF YOU HAVE FAULTY PCM, FAULTY ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OR FAULTY COOLANT FAN RELAY.IF COOLANT FAN AND ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OKAY,YOU HAVE CORRECT COOLANT LEVEL IN COOLANT SYSTEM, THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP BEEN REPLACED, YOU COULD HAVE BLOWN HEAD GASKET CHECK ENGINE OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE HEAD GASKET BLOWED ALSO WHEN HEAD GASKET BLOWED YOU CAN DRIVE CAR SHORT DISTANCE START OVERHEATING AND YOU LOOSE ENGINE POWER SUSPECT BLOWED HEAD GASKET.

I just reapir the overheating problem on my 2001 chevy silverado 5.3 2wd. I am still overheating...it is full of coolant...reservour is still at the fill line with GM dexcool coolant. The problem to begin...


If it overheated i would replace the thermostant and gasket, also make sure its full of coolant, after replacing the thermostat you may have air in system so let it run until stat opens it may boil over a little until stat opens then it will **** coolant into block when that happens fill with coolant, you will need to let it idle for a while before new stat opens, hope this helps, good luck, i think the stat went bad the first time it overheated.

2000 chevy venture overheating and low coolant light on when coolant is full


There is a heat sensor located near the thermostat that goes directly into the block. Get a Haynes or Chiltons manual.

The thermostat is probably bad and causing your overheating. If that is not hte problem, then it would probably be your water pump.
