hey i have a 1994 2.2 cavalier and it keeps overheating.. i changed
thermostat, and that didnt solve the problem, there is no coolant
in the oil so
i dont think its the head gasket.. the waterpump seems
to be circulating the
coolant, as the level in the radiator fluxuates
with the throttle. all hoses
have pressure when the car is running and
the fan turns on..anyone have any

Is the engine fan electric for this particular car?
Is it turning on?
If not, fuse, temperature switch/sensor or broken motor.
Usually turning on the A/C will cause most electric fans to run
continuously so you can check the motor that way.
Is the car really overheating or is it just a guage/indicator problem?
Did you put the thermostat in facing the correct way?
The bridge usually goes AWAY from the engine.
Some GM cars send coolant through the heater core all the time no matter
what position the temperature lever is in.
If the core is clogged the car will overheat.
Radiator might be clogged, after 10 years I would say it's a good bet.
the thermostat is in right, i just replaced it.... the fan turns on
has pressure.. water pump flows and radiator was
flushed... anything else?? and
yes its really overheating, not just
saying so im clueless
