2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Question: Overheating

 

Question

Visitor, V6, Ashville, OH, April 27, 2010, 03:56

Can anyone tell me why all of a sudden my 2006 Chevy Monte Carlo is overheating. I replaced the thermostat and it is still overheating occasionally. The light will come on telling me engine is overheating and to turn the engine off just out of the blue. What else could it be?

    there could be a leak from low coolant level or the radiator could be clogged. have a shop check it out before you cause internal damage from overheating.
