I have a 2001 monte carlo 3.4. I've have changed everything that has to do with the coolent system from water pump to senors. the temp gauge in side the car maxes out and hot temp warning comes on. I've put a temp light gauge on both hoses and reading normal. Does anyone have a clue of helping me?

Sounds like you either have air in the cooling system or a blown head gasket. Those motors are notorious for blowing head gaskets! HTH. -Jim
