Engine Cooling problem
2003 Chevy Impala 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 146000 miles
According to the temp gauge in the vehicle, my engine seems to be running a lot cooler than normal and the temp seems to fluctuate quite a bit. A mechanic says that its likely air somewhere in the line. He says flushing the system would fix the problem. MY personal opinion is that the thermastat is not working properly and he said that would not cause this too happen. I am smelling anti-freeze inside the engine compartment so I must have a tiny leak but no visible signs of a leak at all. Fluid remains ok on refill tank. So do I flush the system and is there a way for me to do this at home? Thanks for your input.
have the same problem?
