Even though you aren't overheating it still may be an indication of a blockage in the radiator/cooling system. Are you sure it's not starting to overheat? Do you have a gauge or a dummy light? BTW 63 Imp is a sweet ride =)

Overheating impala

What you are describing is a lack of coolant flow in the engine or radiator, or lack of air flow thru the radiator.
If you are sure the coolant level is ok, and flow is good, I would check for a restriction in air flow thru the condenser and radiator.

06 chevy.Impala running hot,i install a new radiator and fill with dexcol ilet run 30sec. later it run hot. how do i bleed the air out

DID you change out the Thermostate? the thermostate will open at around 180 degrees to cool off the motor if it fales to open it will make the car run hot. REPLACEMENT BELOW $40.oo range.

  • Open the hood of the impla and locate the thermostat housing. Find the largest hose at the top of your radiator, then follow it until it connects onto a portion of the Impala's engine block. The piece that to which the hose connects is the removable thermostat housing.

  • 2

    Use a jack to raise the Impala off the ground, then settle it down onto jack stands. Make sure the car is in park and the emergency brake is on.

  • 3

    Place a large container under the Impala's radiator. Drain the radiator into the bucket by loosening the clamp on the lower coolant hose with a flat-blade screwdriver, then removing the hose entirely so that the coolant flows into the bucket. Once the coolant stops flowing, set the bucket aside.

  • 4

    Use the screwdriver to loosen the clamp on the coolant hose connecting to the thermostat housing, then remove the hose from the housing completely. This will give you access to the bolts securing the housing to the Impala's engen block

  • 5

    Use a wrench or ratchet and sockets to remove the bolts securing the housing to the engine block, then set them aside somewhere where you will not lose them. Loosen and remove the thermostat housing to reveal the thermostat.

  • 6

    Make a careful note of how the thermostat is oriented toward the Impala's engine block. You must install the new thermostat in the exact same way as the old one is installed. Remove and discard the old thermostat.

  • 7

    Use a scraper tool or a razor blade to remove any remaining bits of thermostat gasket from the bottom of the thermostat housing and from the engine block. It is important to get all the remains off; otherwise the new gasket will not seal properly.

  • 8

    Apply a layer of gasket sealant to the bottom of the Impala's thermostat housing, then press the new gasket against the sealant so that it sticks and makes a good seal.

  • 9

    Install the new thermostat in the manner you noted in Step 6, then replace the thermostat housing and secure it down with the bolts. Reconnect the hoses you disconnected--making sure that the clamps are tightened down so no coolant leaks--and refill the Impala's radiator with the coolant you drained out earlier. Use your jack to lower the Impala back to the ground.

    My car is going in and out of the hot coolant temp zone and blowing cold air out but only every other day any ideas?

    probably got some air in the system. Take radiator cap off, start car and let run until thermostat opens. Top off with coolant and continue to keep full as level drops. make sure coolant is flowing. Once level stops dropping, put cap back on. This should fix it. If not, please get back to us.

    How to change a thermastat 1994 ford escort with a 1.9 engine

    1.9L Engine

    CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Drain the cooling system.
    3. Remove the air intake tube, crankcase breather and PCV hose.
    4. Remove the ignition coil pack and bracket.
    5. Remove the upper radiator hose.
    6. Remove the ignition coil pack bracket.
    7. Unfasten the heater hose inlet tube bracket bolt and remove the heater hose inlet tube from the thermostat housing.
    8. Remove the three thermostat housing attaching bolts, then remove the thermostat housing and gasket.
