Hey whats up guys im a newbie to this site but I have a question and would appreciate any help I can get
ok I have a 95 chevy cavalier with the 2.3 motor manula trans, and about a month ago it started to overheat, in the last two weeks I have replaced, the water pump, the thermostat, the overflow res. Cap, and the radiator, and flushed it 3 times and it still over heats, and there is no coolant in the oil, or oil in the coolant, there is no coolant comming out of the tail pipe, there is no white smoke from the muffler, the car doesnt idle rough, doesnt miss, doesnt stall, I took it to a chevy dealership and they said they had no idea, I just think the coolant is not flowing, but when I drive if I dont drive it hard and dont let the rpms go to high it doesnt overheat, but then if I try to drive hard (or race) then it starts to overhat, then other times the temp actually drops, I took it to a place that deals only with cooling systems and they said they were gonna do a test to see if it was the head gasket, but then he said he couldnt get a reading, I did a pressure test at 16 pounds since that cap is 15, and it only dropped to 141/2, so the mechanic told me that was still normal, so thats all I can think of I dont want to go ripping the head apart if thats not the problem, any suggestions
have the same problem?
