Question about Cooling System for Chevrolet Camaro

Need to know which way the thermostat goes into a 95 camaro with a 3.4 6 cylinder engine it was over heating when I got it and replaced the thermostat the way it was but I think it may have been in wr

I have put in a new thermostat but it is still overheating. want to make sure that the thermostat is in correctly since the previous owner did his own wrenching on it but wasn't good at it. My local Autozone and O'Riely's dont have chiltons or haynes manuals currently for my car.

As a rule of thumb, the side of the thermostat spring goes to the engine side as that is where the wax element lies which needs to be heated to open it up. So coolant directly from the engine goes to the spring side of the thermostat. :)

My clutch goes all the way to the floor I have a standard Camaro 96 3.8

clutch pedals are suposed to go all the way to the floor , you sure you dont mean brake pedal (cus thats bad ! ) clutches should travel all the way to floor and release the "grab" of the engine about 2/3 down , this way they are more smoothly allowing shifting thru the gears and not jerking as you shift thru the gears , if clutch pedal does not start to "grab" the engines power by 2/3 off the floor and fully "grab"its power all the way up(slipping) ,and you have a hydraulic clutch (96's do) then the clutch disk may require replacement or there is a oil leak in the clutch/master/slave cylinder , look for small oil leaks from under car in area of foot pedals
clutches should be replaced as an assembly that includes , disk ,pressure plate, throwout bearing , with engine side clutch plate magnafluxed for heat cracks and any hydraulic oil leaks replaced or repaired

Chevrolet 1995 Camaro radiator over heat but shows

How do you know it is really hot?
It is boiling over, or just gauge?
Gauge could be bad, use thermometer to verify.

But whenever engine gets too hot, thermostat is always ruined and needs replacement, regardless what caused it and may also be wrong.

Less common cause can be head gasket. In car radiator pressure test can detect that. Pump it up to 17 lb or whatever the cap is rated to, and if if is leaks down. Or run the engine, and see if pressure pulses of goes over cap rating.

Least common is a loose bearing in water pump can cause it to bind.

I replaced my water pump and thermostat and the tempature gage censor but my 95 camaro over heats when it idles but not when i drive it

Check to see if you have an electric fan on your radiator or a fan that is mounted to the engine and turns off the the pulley system. If you have an electric fan, when the car heats up at idle, turn you AC on and see if the electric fan comes on. If it does then you have a sensor bad. You have 2 sensors one tells the guage what to register and the other one tells the electric fan when to come on. If you have a fan mounted to the engine then the clutch part of the fan is probably bad. Yopu can buy this seperate and don't have to buy the whole assembly. Most of the v-8's have fans mounted to the motor and most of the v-6's have electric fans but I have seen some with electric fans only. Please let me know if this helped, I am curious to hear the outcome.

Heater is blowing but no heat

First check for low Anti-freeze, then you can squeeze the in-let line prior to the thermostat. It should be hard,when engine is cold. It is good to do this with the radiator cap off since you can watch for water movement while preforming this task, but if it is allowing the water to go through the thermostat; then it is staying wide open. It then will need to be replaced. Your heat should come back at that point.

No spark to #2 cylinder

If you already know the problem, replace the spark plug from that cylinder. A 3 piston working car "dies" much more rapidly. Also, te gas in that cylinder doesn't get burned, part of it going inside the engine to the oil tank finally. That could be dangerous for the engine, the tank may blow and break the engine. Check your oil level periodically in this 3 piston working time. If it goes up or it smells like gas, it's bad. Try getting the plug going.
