05 Chevy Aveo coolant boiling, hold light etc

Asked by Aug 04, 2016 at 04:41 PM about the 2005 Chevrolet Aveo LT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 Chevy Aveo here . So far we changed
the thermostat , valve cover gasket , alternator ...
have done both oil change and coolant flush . Car
is still boiling the coolant and spitting out thru the
overflow , car gets very hot but doesn't show on
the guage (possibly misreading?) and of course
this leads to the fan not kicking in . Strong smell of
coolant , not showing in the oil either but there's a
hint of the smell . We've also checked to see if it's
air locked . Any suggestions ?!?!?! SOS !

1 Answer

Also forgot to mention , a few times now the hold light will flash in the morning when I go to move the car . Stops after maybe 5 minutes .
