1999 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Overheats

My 1999 Chevrolet Monte Carlo has been leaking coolant and on way home got hot and lost power and spits and sputters at 2k RPM. hat would the problem be?

Well you would have to find the cause of the leak. You obviously lost too much coolant to cause the engine to overheat and could have resulted in more damage.

I’ve replaced the water pump. Worked fine now leaking on side. What would cause it to loose compression …head gasket maybe?

If the head gasket is blown, then yes.

Then thats probably what happend on my way home blew my head gasket. Does Blue Devil sealer work as good as everybody says it does?

Simple answer….nope! Trying to fix a problem like that with an additive will just cause other problems when the sealer clogs up vital passages of the cooling system. Just fix it right the first time and have less problems later!

Says no sludge on bottle just straight liquid.

Of course it does! The product will never say it causes problems. I’ve seen every type of quick fix there is and none of them ever work. Do yourself a favor and just fix the real problem. But you can do what you want to, your choice of course.

Yeah I just dont wanna mess my car up and don’t have $600 to fix the gaskets.

Yes, and just imagine when it’s $3000 to replace the engine after you try some sealer!

Thats a good point. I’ll just fix it right.

Good idea. You’ll be better off in the long run.

Where is crank sensor on 1995 Monte Carlo 3.4L ?

There are two crankshaft sensors on the 3.4 engines. Do you know which one you need to change?

No it only calls for 1.

Trust me there are two on the car. One is located on the back side of the engine block, above the steering rack area…and the other is located behind the harmonic balancer on the front of the engine. There are your locations, replace which ever one is needed.

Thank you.
