My car overheats rather quickly. I can drive only a few miles before
the gauge points all the way to the red. Twice, I have stopped the
car, opened the hood and seen coolant exploding out of the coolant
My car is a 1995 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, V8, 5.7 L, 134,000 mi,
I had the thermostat replaced. Then, today, my new mechanic checked
the radiator for leaks and blockage and found none. He looked at the
water pump, which he said seemed fine.
My mechanic is wondering if there may be a problem with the (his
words) "water pump connector to timing chain output." He also
wonders if the heater core may be the culprit. As a worst case
scenario, he wonders if the cooling jackets may need to be replaced.
ANY INFO IS MUCH APPRECIATED. Iíve searched the internet, but I am
not finding a general consensus about why my Trannsy is overheating.
