Engine Cooling problem
1997 Chevy Cavalier 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles
Added (irontite stop leak) to fix a minor head gasket exterior coolant leak.
Added the solution in the upper radiator hose cause I dont have a radiator cap only resevoir cap. Started car blasted heat drove around 20mins. Now car overheats and redlines. We drained coolant and performed a flush and water is coming out from all drain points. After this happened and replaced the t-stat.
Water boils in resevoir tank now and my cooling system is clogged. Heat comes out the vent when I turn on my heat so we ruled out a blocked heater core. Upper rad hose is hot. Lower rad hose is warm but when touching the radiator its cold in some spots. I am completely lost of ideas. Resevoir makes boiling noises when car is overheating
Please help me out, we need to drive our handicapped brother to therapy.
have the same problem?
