Engine Cooling problem
2002 Chevy Malibu 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 166800 miles
My Malibu starting overheating, it does it sort of weird, it stays at the half way mark (safe) for about 20 miles, and then all of a sudden it will shoot up to the red zone. The first time was when I was was driving at about 55 MHP it made a sudden surge and then overheated. SO far I have tried changing the sensor, changing the thermostat, I changed the radiator cap. It still overheats.
New parts = water pump, thermostat, temp sensor, had it pressure tested. It is still over heating.
The water is pumping. So what could it be?
I am a female disabled US Navy veteran, on a fixed income I need to keep this car running.
have the same problem?
