you should stop what your doing. take it to a professional... someone who knows how a coolant system works and knows how to properly diagnose it. sounds like you will spend more money throwing parts at it then you would having someone diagnose and fix it for you.

As with all other things id like to try and take care of it myself to save money on shop charges. @badhombre gonna try and do the heater hoses today. @1badSS I don't think it was the temp sensor..fans kicked on right after I got off the phone with you.

Only other things, is cracked hEad,block, or radiator. Also a head gasket could be broke. Are you loosing any coolant? If not All of your problems have been listed. There is nothing else left on your overheating problem. You need to either look over everything again. Or take it to someone.

I've been fighting with the cooling system on my 95 for a while now. I have a total of about $10 in quick splices in it so far, but I do have a ton of spare parts laying around for instances like this. I will be back at it tomorrow with a new attack plan.

When you go to bleed the coolant system jack the front of the car up or drive it onto ramps. That will help the air rise to the highest point. Here's a thread that has a bunch of ideas in it as well. https://ls1tech.com/forums/generatio...tter-what.html

Have you verified with a known good thermometer that the gauge/sender is accurate?

Leave the cap out, start it and measure coolant temp in cap opening with thermometer. At least you will be sure that it is or is not actually running hot.
