Engine Cooling problem
1997 Chevy Venture 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 93000 miles
I am really hoping you can help me figure out what is going on in my engine. Ok here is the story. We bought this van used with 152000 miles on it. Around 151000 miles on it we replaced the intake gaskets because they went bad. At 152000 even the head gaskets blew and it was cheaper to put an used engine in it instead of the repair. We purchased a used engine with 87000 miles on it. We have since put 5000 miles on it. Well while driving home today (on the freeway) the temp. Gauge shot up to the red and I had not heat. I limped it home. While driving the temp went down to a 1/4 on the gauge. Still no heat. The coolant is backed up in the resevoir. I am able to drive it for about 1.5 to 2 miles before it gets hot and then it goes down to 1/2 and then back up. Still no heat. PLEASE HELP!
have the same problem?
