Re: 2001 Malibu Overheating even after replacing everything. Please help
Here's a couple other possibilities. There may be air trapped in the cooling system, surge tank cap not reliving or building pressure properly, thermostat stuck closed (maybe a faulty new one), and check to see if there are any kinks in any of the cooling system hoses. This may be a dumb question to through out there, but was the oil changed after all this was done? To me it sounds like there is a lot of air in the system, but I don't know if is related to improper filling or there is a leak somewhere internal or external.
