Flush and clean the heater core. Also check your rad cap and maybe change the thermostat

Three are other factors. One situation I've come across over the years is the elctric fan that cools the radiator starts to wear which in turn causes it to stick. This fan due to it's location takes a real beating. Splashing, dust, bugs, and everything else. With a duel fan system, it can be one or both. Start your car let it warm up and observe the fan/s operation. If not this I would look into the relay, which is the second leading cause of overheating in my experiences.

Your water pump may be failing. If it fails (pump bearings, clogs, etc)your thermostast temp goes up because coolant in the water jackets of the engine are being heated to boiling, but not being pumped through the rad to cool. Also check the tightness of your belts, if they are loose, your water pump may not work well. Have you added water without adding coolant? Try a hydrometer and check the strength of your rad fluid.

Possible that head gasket could be bad. If you've done other things and still overheating. If your engine has got very hot in the past this could be your problem.With a aluminum head and cast iorn block these head gaskets can be blown very eaisly. If you run with this condition very long head damage will eventually occur.

Why a cavalier overheat?

A car can overheat for several reasons. You may need to replace your water pump. You may have a leak in the radiator itself. You may need to add more 50/50 mix of radiator fluid and water to your car. You could also have leaks or holes in the radiator hoses. You may also need a new cooling fan for the radiator.

Check the undercarriage for rust holes. My Bonneville would flood when it rained because of a small hole in the passenger side rear wheel well.

How do you remove the rear brake drums from a Toyota Tercel?

There are two types. If there are two scxrew holes in the face of the drum, run the appropriate sized screw into them and force the drum away from the axel. The newer ones require you to remove the nut and axel bearing, then it comes off easily.

What would cause an antifreeze leak in a 1997 Bonneville?

Either the radiator hose is loose where it connects to the radiator or there is either a small hole in the radiator or in the radiator hose. Try checking the hose to see if it's loose or check for small holes in the hose or radiator.

Why is my 1993 Toyota tercel leaking green coolant?

most of the time this is because your radiator has sprung a leak. it can also be because your coolant hoses are corroded and need replacing. check all of the coolant lines coming from the radiator and that they are in good condition and properly attached to there flanges. then check the radiator for any visible signs of corrosion or holes. sometimes your water pump can experience wear and eventualy begin leaking through a small hole under it. Most of the time after running the engine you can take a flashlight and go under the car and see where the coolant is leaking from. follow any drips or liquid trails. if its a hose, simply replace it. if its your water pump, you can replace it or have it replaced. if its coming from a break in your radiator it is best to replace it. using chemicals to stop radiator leaks is a bad idea. auto parts stores will recommend it for quick fixes but do not use these chemicals. they plug up the holes for a temporary fix but also add debris to your coolant wich can build up in un wanted areas imagine if you started bleeding and you injected a clotting agent into your blood to stop it. you would most likely die. The best fix for this is to install a new radiator all together. they are in-expensive if you order them online.

the trans fluid on a auto trans goes through a tube in the radiator to cool the fluid if the tube has holes in it, it will leak trans fluid in to radiator. you need to replace radiator or have rebuilt.or you could put on a aux trans cooler and put plugs where the trans lines used to go.
