Question about 1995 Chevrolet Camaro

1995 Z-28 thermostat problems

Thanks for helping!
Im taking my car in not this week but next. Ive been in and out of town, ( not in my car) and this is the first chance ive had.
Next symptom, I turned the defroster on to cool the car, in case it was getting hot, the air is not hot, its regular temp. Meaning, the heater does not work, it will not heat, I tried it when I noticed the defroster doing its trick. Air conditioner works fine. I noticed at the end of winter, it was not heating up as fast, and my defroster was taking longer to clear my windshield. I think this is all related to the same problem. Temp. will go up, but the car is not hot, and it goes back down to normal upon acceleration in under 4 seconds. Another thing telling me its not hot. This is the 3rd camaro ive owned, never experienced this problem.

Another thing I noticed before was that there can be air pockets in the system. It is tedious but you have to get the engine hot and lossen each of the brass bleeder valves located on the hose to your thermostat housing and the smaller one to the throttle body. go back and forth a coulpe of times while the car is hot and running. Slowly open the valve with a screw driver and have a rag handy for coolant dripping (hot) you will see air bubbles come out. leave it open only for a 4 or 5 second count and then tighten it and try the other the same way. This really is important in these systems. Also some throttle body lines or your heater core etc. become plugged or corodid and don't properly allow the flow and proper air release to be performed. good luck friend!!

When my lincoln town car 1993 dies when i stop do i have a serious problem?


No read the fix below.

Engine stalling issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

My car is over heating when im going down the hwy


May have head gasket leak. If so will be loosing water, possibly quite slowly. At highway speeds cylinder pressure is higher and so gasket leak more likely. Means gasket damage or loose cylinder head. Can be checked by mechanic. (pressure test and cylinder head bolt tension test)
Less likely alternatives, the spark timing is too advanced or the fuel too poor.
