changed radiator and thermostat in sunfire but still overheating


Asked by Nov 08, 2013 at 04:10 PM about the 1998 Pontiac Sunfire

Question type: General

1 Answer

Tom Demyan

Can I assume you replaced the radiator and thermostat because the car overheated? Did you bleed the system of all air? Check the water pump? You might want to do a compression check on 4 cylinders, you might have a bad head gasket if you did overheat.
