SOURCE: 2000 chevy lumina. Is fan supposed to come on when car started

no fan comes on when engine cold start up .but it will come on when you turn on air conditioning or defrost on .if engine idling a while when temp get 190 degree the fan will kick on.if over heating you got air in system .wait until cools check coolant add more .crank engine let it idle few. minutes when start warming up turn off engine wait a while before removing radiator cap so you wont get scald.add more coolant .crank it again starting warming up turn off engine wait a while .add coolant .keep doing this procedure until your coolant stop dropping off .if you do this more than 6 times you got a leak some where.check crank level for signs.if oil level higher than normal.if everything looking good.when engine cool make sure add coolant to over flow jug cold level mark.

SOURCE: 2000 Malibu keeps running hot.

You replaced the head gasket but did you get the head or heads checked for cracks or check the block for warpage?

Well, a faulty water pump could cause the engine to overheat fairly quickly, but additional pressure in the cooling system is usually caused by a leaking head gasket.

2000 chevy venture 3.4l overheating


Have you replaced the intake manifold gaskets? These engines have a history of leaking intake manifold gaskets. Water leaks into the intake and is burned off in the cylinders. If the engine overheats enough times, you will eventually blow the head gaskets.

Start by performing a compression check to make sure you haven't blown the head gaskets. Then make sure the car is really overheating (i.e. check the temperature of the engine with a infrared thermometer (they are cheap at Harbor Freight).

If it is really overheating, and you've really changed everything else, you need to change the intake manifold gaskets. Be sure to get the improved gaskets from the parts store (they have a metal core with rubber coating).

Cooling System Failure 2000 Chevy Cavalier 2.2LOHV


Did you have the head checked, they have been known to break inside the runners . I always used a vacuum fill system when working on these, jack up the pass front corner when doing a coolant refill, that should eliminate an air lock

No heat also overheats within 5 minwhen i drive it. new radiator new radiator cap new themistat.


seems like you might have a bad head gasket remove radiator cap and let it run. make sure the antifreeze is flowing if not it could be the water pump prop many car makers are using plastic props and they fail with time.also very possible that thermostat is bad was it overheating before it received a radiator ,cap and thermostat if so it is between head gasket.,and water pump but if you have no flow it is possible that the water pump prop is broken .there is head gasket test that can be done most shops have them and cost a little to do.to be sure.

My 2002 Chevy Malibu is overheating. I found that


If your car is equipped with a 3.1 or a 3.4 litre V6 and you have preformed all of the above listed work then I would have to say its the intake manifold gaskets. They commonly blow on these motors. Just a design flaw, nothing but replacing them when they leak can fix this. Also run a coolant pressure test on the system to check for minor things like a leak that you cant see from visual inspection. Hope this helps.
