I have a 2001 Pontiac Firebird with a 3.8L V6 and it was given to me as a graduation present. Recently i actually ran out of gas in the car because the fuel gauge does not read properly and ever since then i have been having issues with it not wanting to start and it actually died on me while i was driving it yesterday. We just replaced the fuel pump a few months ago. also i have noticed that the car is starting to overheat. i had rinsed out the radiator i didnt do a full flush or anything and then put new antifreeze in the radiator but it still is overheating a tiny bit. any ideas??
Move up north? Kidding haha. So the overheating issue has only started AFTER you ran out of gas? Also, I used to have the same car. Fuel gauges in them like to tell lies. I recommend treating 1/4 tank as empty.
Make sure you put the proper antifreeze in with the right amount of water (not tap water), should be 50/50. Then get a manual to see if there is a air bleed procedure to make sure there is no air in the coolant.
How many miles on the car?
