Have you adjusted and cleaned the carb/s? if the head gasket has gone then it will be a major pain to start due to a loss of compression, is it loosing coolant? is there a cream gathering in your oil?

Sounds like a big vacume or intake leak. 1st check your intake tube make sure it has no splits also look under the tube with a mirror. Check clamps. Another possible is fuel flow & pressure. There is a couple of places to start.

ity sounds like the electric fan is not turning on, if it is only overheating at idle (sitting still) and is not overheating when driving, but any good shop should have already determined this. open the hood while idling, and watch to see if the fan by the radiator turns on when idling, and the temp is going up. if the fan is indeed working, then it may be the head gasket, or it may be a slow-to-open thermostat.

if it is the head gasket, you should notice one of the following symptoms: smoke out the tailpipe- usually white, green or red (depending on your type) coolant dripping from the tailpipe at start-up, murky or bubbly oil from coolant leaking into the oil, or an oily film on top of the coolant from oil leaking into the coolant. a clear water drip from the tailpipe is normal, form condensation, but if the drip is the color of your coolant, then you definitely have a head gasket issue.

Was driving my 1999 chevy venture this morning after 12 miles had no heat & temp gauge pegged in the red. then went down & came right back up. Stopped & turned it off for 20 minutes or so. ...


You are describing a slow coolant leak and the resultant no heat and blockoverheating symptoms. The no heat is because there is insufficient coolant to cycle through the heater core, and the chuggin you describe is the engine indicating serious overheating.
With engine cold, you must add water--not anti-freeze--to the radiator itself, until it reaches the top of the radiator, then start the engine. If you do not have a radiator cap in addition to the overflow bottle (some vehicles don't), you must still add water to the radiator, even if you have to bypass the overflow bottle hose to do it. Add water until no more will go into the radiator. Start engine, let idle until operating temperature is reached. Thermostat should open and a good bit of the water will "sink" into the depth of the radiator. If you have no radiator cap, observe the temperature guage. When it reaches normal operating temp, when the thermostat opens, the temp will drop briefly at first, and you will notice warm air from the heater/defroster.
Once engine is warm and known to be full of water, seal radiator cap and/or system, and let idle for 30 minutes. Use this time to locate the "mystery leak." They can be very hard to find, and some won't leak until after the engine is turned off. During this idle period, observe the vehicle exhaust from the tailpipe as well as looking for actual water leaks: sometimes a bad head gasket can be diagnosed this way; if the exhaust is white and thick like steam, and smells like anit-freeze, you have a more serious problem. It is possible that after the repeated overheating cycles you have endured you may now have both a "mystery leak" and a blown head gasket.
Once leak is located, your next step is to let engine cool completely, drain the water, fix the leak, and then and only then add new antifreeze of the proper rating and ratio recommended by Chevy for your vehicle.
Anytime you drain a cooling system and refill it, it is necessary to check the overflow bottle at least 3 times in the first week after repair to ensure that you have the proper coolant level, and have not either missed another leak or not correctly repaired one. You MUST check it before you drive the vehicle the second time after the first repair attempt because it is normal to need to add more coolant than you added initially after the repair because of air trapped in the cooling system that will only be expelled after the first start/stop heating cycle. If after 1 week of daily normal driving you have only added a little more coolant once, and there are no more problems, you can be very comfortable that you have fixed your car.

there is a good possibility that your engine may have ingested some of that antifreeze and if it did thats one of the reasons why your engine idle is rough the reason why its hard to start is becaus the anti freeze is being compressed by the pistons when you start the engine check the tailpipe for white smoke or an antifreeze smell As far as the stop leak its sometimes a temporary fix for a bigger problem .Check your antifreeze level (when it cools down).for a low fluid level

My hyundai accent '95 misses when its cold.


Comment from the FixYa Moderator Staff:

I DISAGREE with the solution provided by Eliase.

You should NEVER spray 'starting fluid' in the engine compartment.

Starting fluid contains ether, and is extremely flammable.

Usage of staring fluid to look for vacuum leaks is a potentially dangerous situation.

I respectfully request that you refrain for using starting fluid.

What you CAN use, however, is a commonly found product, namely carburetor cleaner. This chemical is less flammable, and is used very often in the automotive business. Spray the carb cleaner near the intake manifold(s) where they connect to the block. If the idle changes, you have found the area that needs attention.

I would also doubt that you have a head gasket issue.

You either have a bad engine coolant temp sensor & connector.Located under upper radiator hose at cylinder head Yellow & black wire.Original sensor is ceramic & replacement will be brass from saturn.Also you may check for vacuum leaks at PCV hose & valve.Hope this helps
