My 2001 Chevy Lumina is overheating, recently I changed the thermostat and flushed out the radiator. So over the two weeks the temperature on the car would heat up a little bit, the car would blow out cool air, then the temperature of the engine would drop down dramatically and it would blow hot air back out. Did I buy a faulty thermostat by chance or was that signs of my pump for the coolant system going out? Currently the car is back to overheating rapidly again and the low coolant light comes on. After flushing the radiator I found out its a 3gallon system and ive only been able to put 2.5gallongs back in. Could the flush I used not have gotten rid of all the gunk in the radiator so I just need to get it steemed?
have the same problem?
