    I have a 97 camaro v6 and recently she overheated on my way to school :icon_sad:. The belt ripped or fell off (i was in deep traffic couldn't stop). So i had to drive to y aunts house with no power steering. I thought my engine was totaled but she turned on and didnt turn off while driving...
  3. V6 Camaro and Firebird Tech
    I pinned for time so I'll make it quick. I have a 3.8l v6. And my hEater hose broke awhile back so I put water to get me home. So I got a new hose and tested it with straight water to see test it since most of the coolant spilled out when the hose broke. It rose terribly fast. So I put some more...

  5. 4th Gen (1998-02) Camaro and Firebird Tech
    The water pump blew on my 1998 Z28. Ever since we replaced it, the car runs slightly hotter than it's ever done and it always overheats when idling (ya I know.....don't let it idle, but it's hard to avoid in peak hour traffic driving to and from work). Here's the really weird thing. The temp...
  6. 4th Gen (1993-97) Camaro and Firebird Tech
    i have a 96 3.8 v6 camaro that has been recently plagued with overheating problems. i bled the cooling system and added more coolant and the overheating stopped, but it seems the coolant has disappeared. i have noticed some white smoke on startup and just checked the oil and the oil on the...
  7. 4th Gen (1998-02) Camaro and Firebird Tech
    My 98' Camaro does not have a leak in the radiator but the antifreeze keeps going down into the car somewhere but i don't know where and it only comes back up when it overheats. So if you know where the antifreeze is going or why it is overheating please let me know and thank you.
  8. V6 Camaro and Firebird Tech
    First off, I'm new here but have been a sporadic lurker for a while. This is my first Camaro and I love her. Had for about 5 or so years now. She's a 2000 model and just recently made 200k miles. She's had overheating issues in the past that were rather easily (if not expensively) solved...

    Hey, New to the forum. Thanks in advance for the advice, help, and entertainment! Ooookay, ive done a lot of searching on this forum and have found a lot of people with similar issues as mine.

  10. General Camaro & Firebird Tech
    Hey guys so I just got a 95 Camaro and the only problem is that it overheats when it idles. The fan works. It was a little low on oil, I added a quart and it seemed to help. The strange part is that the gauge marks normal temp but if i drive it for a while it hisses after I turn the engine off...

  13. 1st Gen & 2nd Gen (1967-81) Tech
    I'm looking to find a heavy duty heater core. Ive heard that might help the overheating problem. Any type I need to ask for when purchasing it? I'm not a mechanic so I might sound stupid. I know the water pump is fine.. thermostat is new and and radiator is not leaking. The car gets super hot in...
  14. V6 Camaro and Firebird Tech
    Got a 96 camaro v6 manual and I've noticed that while I'm on the highway after about 5-10 minutes of driving 65-75 the check gauges light comes on and a lil bit after that my car bogs down bad, I basically have to keep the peddle to the floor to keep it from dropping speeds. It also sounds and...

    Ok, So I have an 88 Z28 with a 6.6 in it backed by a 700R4. I've been stationed overseas for 2 years and haven't been around the car since I built it and then proceeded to either break it, or just screw something up about a year ago. Since then here are my issues / thoughts on them. I'd like...
  16. 4th Gen (1998-02) Camaro and Firebird Tech
