Added coolant. But then there was no temp reading at all
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Heat does not blow hot either
Chevy Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago

You need to find and address why it overheated in the first place. Possible causes:

faulty fan

stuck thermostat

restricted radiator

blown head gasket

bad water pump

coolant leak

The issue now is likely a air pocket in the system. Run the engine with the coolant cap off and the heat on to belch out the air trapped i nthe cooling system that prevents the coolant from flowing.

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

If your confused on why or how to rate me, let me know.

I like to stay in contact with my customers that appear not pleased, still working on the concern, or have not rated yet. I assume you were not pleased with my help. I hate that you have spent money to get an answer but left not happy. Can you tell me why, or can I help more. If its more help you need just reply and we can pick up where we left off. I am also sending an offer allowing me to upload diagrams or repair guides if that helps.

Thanks Chris
