Engine Cooling problem
2002 Chevy Cavalier 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 94,000 miles
So I have 2002 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 L DOHV with just over 94,000 miles on it. I have been battling the cooling system for a while now and it seems that the thermostat is stuck open. I am unsure though because the engine heats up to its normal heating temperature of 195 it just takes longer then it used to. Also when I am driving on the highway the temp gauge will drop to about half of normal operating temp. Is a stuck open thermostat the most likely problem if I just put one in two months ago? Also just yesterday I noticed that my electric radiator fan was turning on all the time when I started the engine. What would cause that, a specific sensor or a relay switch?
have the same problem?
