Asked by Dec 05, 2013 at 08:59 PM about the 2002 Chevrolet Venture

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

the condition of the coolant...may have mucked the operation of the thermostat...change the coolant...have the heater core flushed of any debris...insure good flow though the cooling system loop..even run without the thermostat in place (not reaching proper combustion temperatures) to see if it still overheats.....if the coolant is rusty, it is because someone "panic" refilled with tap water and did not drain and fill with the proper 50/50 glycol/de-ionized water....aluminum heads will disintegrate with only plain water....you want as fresh a coolant in there as possible...if you do not have good coolant flow could be the waterpump has disintegrated as well~
