Engine Cooling problem
1994 Chevy Cavalier 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 191000 miles
Since the hot weather my car has been overheating very quickly and turning off. Usually I turn the heat on and it solves the problem. My car starts again right away but a little more driving and it turns off again.I was wondering if you could let me know what I should be telling my mechanic. Also if my cigarette lighter is not working, can I change the fuse by myself or should I contact my mechanic
It could be a waterpump or a thermostat, I would change the thermostat and flush the cooling system. If you have a radiator cap, you can remove it and you should see the coolant moving through the radiator.
You can replace the cigarette fuse yourself, remove fuse panel cover and it should be marked, usually 20amp fuse.
