Engine Cooling problem
2002 Chevy Impala 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 170000 miles
1 1/2 years ago had the head gaskets replaced, they were the cause of overheating. Now it's overheating again. The water pump and thermostat have been replaced, the lower radiator deflector is missing. When I drive the car it will go to 210-220 I will then park and let it idle temp does not come down until I turn on the A/C the fans kick on and the temp comes down to normal. When the car was cold I drained some coolant out so I could see the first row of the radiator. With the cap removed I started the car when it got to normal temp I could see good flow out of the top row of the radiator. If I start the car and let it idle for at least a half hour it will run at normal temp never getting hot
have the same problem?
