Why are there heat issues with engine constantly trying to stay in the 210-220 range?

ECT sensor may be corroded. Do the fan/s come on around 210-220 ?

Car is running hot and I put a new thermostat in and water bump

make sure the radiator cooling fans are coming on. GM has also had major problems with the lower intake gaskets leaking on the V-6 engines. sometimes when refilling the cooling systems air lock can occur. run the engine until it warms up and then turn off and let it cool down, if coolant level goes down repeat this process two or three times. other causes could be clogged radiator, or worse case scenario blown head gaskets. also i have on occasion got bad thermostats from the parts store. the upper radiator hose will get very hot when the thermostat opens. run the engine and hold the upper hose and when the t-stat opens the hose will get hot. then when the cooling fan comes on hot air will rush from from the fans. if the fans come on and the air is cool then there is a circulation problem. t-stat, clogged radiator, low coolant, head gaskets. good luck.

Have a 2000 chevy cavalier. new water pump, new t-stat, new head gasket , new coolant, still running hot

Two ideas.

1. Try a new radiator reservoir cap (trust me, it is very important in holding pressure which keeps the coolant from boiling out).

2. This one you will need an entire weekend to spend on this. You need to remove the thermostat and replace the thermostat housing. pull one of the radiator hoses and attach a garden hose with good pressure. It needs to flush for at least 20 minutes. Then switch directions and flush water where was coming out. Then put it back together and drive until it gets hot. Allow it to cool for 45mins (to prevent engine from cracking due to rapid cooling) and repeat until no crud comes out when flushing.

Engine Gets Hot, thermo stat replaced, new radiator, water pump works. What's wrong?

possible head gasket failure or cracked head. Check for water in exhaust to confirm. Remove/inspect spark plugs for water/coolant.

My 1995 Riviera is overheating and this has become a head scratcher (engine 3.8). Last year the radiator, water pump, belts and hoses were replaced. About a week ago it started to overheat. I replaced the...

Drain and flush the cooling system...more than once if needed.
Replace the thermostat with a 180 degree...the OE stat. is 200 degree.
Clean the outside of the radiator and a/c condensor, make sure there is no debris in the cooling fins and they flow air freely.
Fill system with 50/50 mixture.
If it still attempts to overheat...check your cat convertor, it's clogged and creating too much back-pressure
Hope this helps...

Need to replace thermostat and temperature sensor to pass emmission test. easy to do ???- budget!!!

its fairly easy (don't do this while hot) temp is around 180-200* you want to place a bucket or drain pan under the the front where the drain chock is located open so that you drain about 1-1.5 gal's out of the radiator (it would be good to have some cat litter handy and clean up right away so that shoud you have a dog his/she is not poisened follow the top radiator hose to the thermostat and remove the 2 bolts on each side "if lucky you have the rubber gasket to seal the housing back up. replace the thermo with new unit (some aftermarket parts companys give you a cheeze rubber gasket its best to reuse the old rubber gasket in this case) locate temp sensor unscrew after disconecting wire reconect wire after installing sensor refill antifreeze with fresh 50/50 mix start car or van let run with presser cap off so that the system can bleed out the air out of the system then top off coolent after engine has reached operating tempature continue checking with cap off. turn hearter control to max hot add fluid to overflow tank replace cap to the hot mark drive couple times around the block and check tank let car/van sit for a few minute's to cool down check tank should read full or needs fluid add as needed check for leakswhen done clean drive

Have a 1958 Chevy 348 / 409 engine that runs hot.

Waterpump? The blades can erode away from age and old antifreeze. Or not enough airflow thru the radiator. Try blowing through the fins with an airhose to see if it is dirty or plugged.
