1991 camaro overheating

My 1991 camaro rs is overheating constantly. the cooling fan is not coming on; a/c blows warm air only & heater never blows warm air; mechanic(so he calls himelf-um?!) had radiator flushed & replaced hoses/radiator cap; tachometer no longer works; punched "insides" of catalytic convertor out but didn't replace; changed spark plugs & wires & replaced 1 freeze plug all for $1100.00! Three days later the radiator will not hold water & temperature gauge reads 250+ . the only visible water/coolant leak is the STREAM of water that runs continously underneath the car between transmission & motor until all water in radiator & overflow tank are empty. could this be caused from freeze plugs that need replacing?

There are two freeze out plugs at the rear of the block (V8) and many v6 engines. If coolant is coming from where you say, likely they have failed. Unfortunately, the only way to reach them is to remove engine or transmission, It's rare that they fail because they are "protected " by the bellhousing, but can still rot from the inside out. There is no sealer known to man that will fix this. It's a shame that you need to do all that work for a pair of $2.00 plugs, but that's what needs to happen.

Possibly a bad hose to the heater core or the heater core could be plugged,especially since you describe getting no warm air from the heater and coolant flowing between motor and transmission,the cooling fan could be a bad thermo switch or relay,as far as the freeze plugs most likely not,the coolant would flow out of a bad freeze plug as soon as you started filling it,you should go back to your "mechanic" and demand a refund,I'd say demand a repair but I don't think this guy can fix is own hair,it sounds like he was hoping and groping for a solution,at the very least file a consumer complaint with your states attorney general and cosider a small claims suit.

Your radiator cooling fan will only come on when the engine temp has reached the point where it needs to have air forced through the radiator and thus bring engine heat back down to safe operating range. If your heater is not working check to make sure the fresh air vents aren't stuck open (are the controls stiff or not going all the way across?) check also that the heater shutoff valve lever which is usually situated on the firewall at the rear of the engine and can be found easily by tracing the hoses back from the thermostat housing aren't bent and/or seized up.

I have an 1997 chevy camro rs w a 134000 miles that is overheating the engine an water pump has been replaced an i stil cant find what is causing it to overheat


It could be the thermostat not opening and closing as it should. Or it could be a bad overflow/radiator cap. If the cap starts to go bad, it won't hold pressure and this will cause overheating. Good Luck. There are other major issues possible, but hopefully it's not. Start the engine cold and as the engine warms you should feel the thermostat open and water flowing as you hold the radiator hose, just be careful around moving fans.

Check the cooling fan motor and of course the fluid level. If the temp is changing thru the heater it could just be low on coolant , leaking from ? Two wheel drive have an elecrtic cooling fan only, make sure its spinning up when temp is 3/4. If not its probably the fan motor. Can be checked with a test light .

Heater in truck blows either cold air or no air.


It sounds like you have air trapped in the cooling system. Try filling the radiator and coolant reservoir cold. Then leave the radiator cap loose and run engine at 1500 rpm until it warms up and the thermostat opens. Make sure heater is on full warm setting.

check the cooing fans and make sure they come on when they are supposed if they don't come on when the car starts getting hot shut the car off and direct wire to battery to test the fans and make sure they are working. if the fans come on that way the cooling fan switch is bad should be mounted in thermostat housing. if fans work like they are supposed plugged up to car check the radiator cap could cause the same problem.
