1994 Chevrolet Corsica Q&A
1994 Chevrolet Corsica Question: overheating
First it was my power steering fluid, i had to replace every few days. Then the check engine light would come on after 15 min or more of driving. bt no other bad signs until i started noticing smoke.so i figured i needed some water. right after now its running hot til the point it shut off on me tonight. i took it to auto zone and the man said maybe it had a seal where i put the water and i cracked it. what could be the problem. please help i really need my car - datgurl730
When you need wiper blades you go to Autozone, when you have a problem with your car you go to a repair shop. ; ) If someone sells parts it doesn't mean he has the slightest clue about repairs, otherwise all pharmacist would be doctors. If it keeps overheating and shutting off there might be a blown head gasket. You really need to get it to a REPAIR SHOP to have it diagnosed. There are many good mechanics in NC who can check it for you. If you keep driving in this condition you might create a bigger, more expensive problem. Zee - ZeeTech
Why or what would cause my cooling system to not flow with the thermostat removed..(yes i have a blown head gasket) but that wouldnt cause it right?
A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. The engine may overheat as a result of the coolant loss. A leaking water pump should be replaced.
