ok, its an 89 old cutlas, also i bypassed the AC pulley because belt would not stay on, i used a shorter belt, just wondering if I HAVE to run the belt over the AC even if AC doesnt work??

FIXED! i checked the fan motor first to see if that worked, it did, then I replaced the coolant temp sensor, everything is good now.
