Chevy Van wants to overheat


Asked by May 19, 2014 at 10:36 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Express G3500 Passenger Van Extended

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It's a 2001 G3500 2dr extended and it wants to go from normal to real hot especially now that it has warmed up here in Arizona.  I thought that maybe a bubble in the lines but have run it for hours with the radiator open and still wants to over heat.  HELP!!

Chek your thermusstat it may have a 95 and you can chang it to a 85 to let it run cooler


OK good suggestion, I'll try it, thanks.
