HI...MY ANTIFREEZE CONSTANTLY RUNS OUT OF THE OVERFLOW. MY FANS ARE WORKING AND MY PUMP WORKS TOO, BUT IT STILL RUNS HOT...
I have a 1999 Alero, and I bought it used (2nd or 3rd owner) over 4 years ago, with 114,00 miles on it. It has been a great car, with very few minor problems. I have driven it from east coast to west, and back and forth from Wyoming to Washington State several times, and it's still going great with almost 165,000 miles on it now. The alternator went out, and the plastic clips that hold the glass panes inside the door panels broke because of repeated freezing and heating for about 8 years, but those are very easily and cheaply replaced. Other than that, I have not paid a dime besides regular oil changes and some new tires. This model of car came highly recommended to me from mechanics of 2 of the largest GM car dealerships in Salt Lake City, UT. as being extremely reliable and easy to find parts for/easy to fix if something does go wrong.
I have a 2001 and have replaced the engine once already and was just notified by a mechanic after just having the head gasket done I'm told I need another engine replacement. Had the cooling system redone, wheel barrings...mostly the engine and cooling sytem have been major issures.
my car is great but it wont start and i;ve changed the battery and starter whats the problem???
I am currently at 63,000 miles and I have replaced the brakes several times, passenger side window came off track, egr valve failed. Power steering pump replaced. Has had a few electrical problems too.
