2007 PONTIAC TORRENT OVERHEATING

Asked by Dec 30, 2013 at 07:50 PM about the 2007 Pontiac Torrent Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2007 Pontiac Torrent overheated . The coolant level was low.Service replaced the rad, which they indicated had a potential to fail, and also replaced the thermostat. The car ran for about a day and the same problem occurred. What else could be the problem.
I have checked the internet for other reported problems which are similar to mine, and found some overheating problems with the 2006 but not the 2007.
I assume that the mechanic would have also checked the water pump.

Perhaps they didn't bleed the air out of the cooling system. If that's required on your model. HTH. -Jim

My 2009 did the same thing. After taking it in twice the mechanic told me it had to do with a sensor by the blockheater. With the new blockheater cords with built in thermostats the temperature sensor is near the engine. Therefore when you plug in your vehicle on a cold day the blockheater starts up right away even though the engine is not cold yet. This shouldn't really be a problem as older vehicles would be plugged in before their engines were cool too, but apparently it screws up the sensor making the vehicle's system think the engine is overheating. The mechanics reset the electronics system and I haven't had the problem since (knock on wood). It could be all hooey but that was my experience with it.
